Laura Mercier: Foundation Primer Protect


Having never used Laura Mercier before and needing some UV protection for the summer months (and just my skin in general) I picked up the Foundation Primer Protect a while ago. Laura Mercier is a beauty god to a-lot of bloggers so I was intrigued to see how the products would work with me.

To cut to the chase - I'm not fussed. It's a creamy primer, quite light in consistency gliding on the skin smoothly, and although it does make my base more nourished for applying foundation it doesn't really make any difference to the longevity of it. Which albeit isn't the main selling point of this, but when you hear the word primer it's kind of expected?

The product was lovely and hydrating and obviously the SPF30 is fantastic benefit so I can see myself continuing to use this - but probably only if it's a scorching day or I'm on holiday. Unfortunately I'm a matte - long lasting primer gal, and this just doesn't do it for me.

Hopefully I'll have better luck with other Laura Mercier products, what are your favourites? A. xo


  1. I tried this and had high expectations but exactly the same feelings, shame considering it is a high end product. I'm still on the hunt for the perfect long lasting primer that isn't silicone based x

  2. I was exactly the same, I tried it, and initially loved it but like you said the longevity isn't up to much at all. Xx
