Today I am reviewing one of the original standards of the the foundation primers. The Laura Mercier Foundation Primer is known to be one of the best on the market. It hasn’t been a best seller since 1995 for nothing!
Why has this primer been so successful since it was first introduced? Because it is a lightweight, creamy gel that creates an invisible layer for foundation to glide on the skin. It allows foundation to look fresh and color-true all day long. This is Laura Mercier’s Step 1 in her Flawless Face routine. This primer has Vitamins A, C, and E to act as anti-oxidants and protect the skin from free radicals and other aggressors in the environment. It also contains essential oils, such as jasmine and botanicals, such as aloe vera, that are soothing to the skin. Take the primer and place in the refrigerator to help relieve puffiness on the face. The formula is non-comedogenic and great for all skin types. It sinks right into skin and leaves no stickiness or residue, so there is no oiliness or shininess to the skin
The Flawless Face is her primer, foundation, concealer and powder that together make skin look perfect! Her invention of the Foundation Primer creates the perfect canvas for foundation by evening the skin’s surface. Foundation makes the skin looks as natural as possible, while concealing things like freckles and age spots with good, natural coverage. Concealer takes it to the next level, with her revolutionary Secret Camouflage, which hides under-eye circles, discolorations, blemishes, scars and imperfections. Set all of this so that it lasts all day with the Setting Powder, a powder that allows makeup to last all day with no caking, which has little to no pigment.
This has become a staple in my makeup routine now. I can’t believe I had never used it before! Now I need to try the other products in the Flawless Face routine to get the whole perfect skin thing going. I really want to get Secret Camouflage, because I need a good concealer for the face and this one looks perfect. There are two colors in each compact: a light and a dark shade. Perfect!!!!
