Laura Mercier Primer £28
Until I started reading beauty blogs, Primers always flew under my radar. Having oily skin, its essential for me to find base products that are going to last throughout the day.
Recently, I've been using the laura mercier primer under my foundation to try and battle my oily t-zone and keep my foundation lasting longer.
I got this primer as part of a set in the space nk sale. It was a super bargain at £12.50 (I'll review some of the other stuff in it soon!). I probably wouldn't have looked at it otherwise as it is on the expensive side. That being said, I do think Laura's products are good quality.
The primer has a creamy gel texture, reminiscent of some moisturisers. It feels very lightweight on the skin and leaves it looking healthy and radiant. The oil control isn't perfect but its recommended for normal to combination skin which I would agree with. I still need to blot my t-zone but I haven't yet found anything that works amazingly well on keeping my skin oil free throughout the day.
The positives are that my foundation seems to hold up better on the rest of my face. My foundation looks smoother and my pores are minimised. For a higher end primer it works really well on skin that isn't overly oily. Overall, a nice treat product but not the best on the market for oily girls.
