To prime or not to prime? The Laura Mercier Radiance primer provides a solid answer to that age-old beauty question!
I have had actual cosmetologists tell me that primers don’t do anything, but I say they just haven’t met this one.
Holy Grail and a staple in my everyday makeup routine is this baby right here! The Laura Mercier Radiance Primer. The beauty of this product is not only does it make all of your makeup last longer, it’s also extremely refreshing to apply on the skin. It’s my favorite product to apply each morning because it just feels great.
Applying the Laura Mercier Radiance Primer
I think a concern circling around foundation primers is that an added layer on your face will leave you feeling a bit weighed down. Fortunately though, that’s not an issue with the Laura Mercier Radiance primer. I prepare my skin for foundation in stages, starting with moisturizer and then allowing a minute or two for that to sink in before applying the Radiance primer. It sits very lightly on the skin and absorbs easily. It’s an extra little step that takes just a minute, but really peps up my skin. The primer helps your foundation apply very smoothly and evenly across your skin and gives it a little pick me up.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a discussion on Laura Mercier’s Radiance primer without addressing the elephant in the room.
Just how radiant are we talking here?
No doubt, the Laura Mercier Radiance primer gives a soft, warm glow to the skin that’s natural and gives your look an extra bit of life.
Confession time: I’m an incredibly light sleeper and battle insomnia on the regular.
Meaning? My skin is often looking like something out of The Walking Dead when I wake up in the morning. Upon catching a glimpse in the mirror, I’ll gust at my reflection and just how flat and dull my skin looks right before my very eyes.
Trust me, it’s not always a pretty sight…but when I reach for the Laura Mercier Radiance primer, my skin gets a nice little pick me up to fool people into thinking a lot more energized than I really am. (After that, comes the coffee…of course.)
I think it’s also worth mentioning that while the radiance primer does give you a nice glow, it’s subtle and doesn’t look flashy or distracting. No need to worry about blinding people at brunch over mimosas.
A Passing Grade?
All in all, Miss Laura Mercier sure does deliver with her products and the Radiance primer is NO exception.
I’m going to pretend I’m a middle school teacher here for a second and give the product a solid A! Not only does the primer give your complexion a healthy boost of radiance, it also adds longevity to your foundation and prevents anything from settling oddly into your fine lines.
