Meh you know I’ve been following a rule of thumb lately if Talc ,Parabens and Demethicone are one of the last ingredients listed in the foundation whether that be high end or low end it, it’s okay to buy. Even Chanel and Lancome foundations contain some Parabens– it’s impossible to avoid it all together. Laura Mercier is a trusted high end brand and I’m sure their ingredients are paramount with a few exceptions. If you still have doubts go to the Sephora website to get a list of ingredients in the Laura Mercier primer.

I like your review :)… I just miss the information about the price and where to buy this product. Would you hepl me, please?

Laura Mercier oil-free tinted moisturizer is awesome too! Light, flawless coverage, it glides on perfectly. I imagine it would go really well with this primer!

would it good for skin with acne problem and also sensitive. I don’t like feel greasy with the foundation. I usually use powder for the final after done applying foundation. I uses either Stila One Step or Revlon color stay mineral mousse SPF 15. I usually have primer for with bare mineral products but don’t know about would good goes with regular foundation?

This looks really good. Thanks for the review. I have been looking for a primer for more mature skin to add to my kit so this one might be worth a try.

You are the second Aussie girl I have seen on Makeup Geek now. Love it!

Very sweet young lady :-)
I have a question that I really need to get answers. Please please! :-)
A primer like this one from Laura Mercier or Benefit Porefessional can they only be used under liquid foundation or can you also use a primer under a powder foundation such as i.d. bareMinerals who shall be applied with a small kabuki brush?

I really need help from you Marlene or some of your sweet girls ;-)

Hi Shania!
Yes, I’ve used this primer before using my Nude by Nature Mineral Powder Foundation and it works fine :-)
Hope you’re having a great week ,

I use and love this product, it’s amazing and frankly the best primer I’ve ever used.

I absolutely love this primer. I tried it first by getting a sample from Sephora (which anyone can do, with almost any product)… I used it everyday and had to go back and buy it!
