Laura Mercier’s Foundation Primer has been around forever, but she recently released a Radiance Bronze version that preps the skin for foundation while adding a sunlit glow. Keep reading to see if this product is worthwhile!
As with any liquid highlighter type product, swatches are really hard to capture the essence of the product. Hopefully you can see that this product provides a light bronze glow to the skin without being shimmery or glittery. I use this product as a foundation primer prior to applying any matte or satin finish foundations. I’m sure that this product can be mixed in with foundation like other illuminating liquids, but I have not used it that way. I think that this is better used like a traditional primer because it provides such a smooth canvas to the skin to make for an easier foundation application. I find that my foundation lasts all day using this primer just like with other primers that I use. The difference is that this one gives me that glow! If you have oily skin, I think you still will be able to use this because it doesn’t make me oily at all. Keep in mind that it doesn’t keep me matte either so if you like mattifying primers, this isn’t for you. Overall, I’m really happy with this product. I used point perks from Sephora for this 0.5ml package, but it retails for $33 for 1.7 oz of product. It’s a little expensive, but I think it is worth it!
For me, this product is a HIT!
