In an earlier post, I professed my undying love for the new mineral line from Laura Mercier and now it’s time to talk about the equally impressive Mineral Primer. Laura is known for her primers, they stand out in a sea of imitations because hers don’t contain silicone and they really hold foundations in place. She understood that with her new mineral foundation line she needed to invent a powder priming counterpart for it to really be effective.
I’ve used the mineral foundation with and without the primer and there’s really no contest. It improves the foundation holding its color longer, keeps shine in check, makes SPF more effective, and you can use it under your current mineral foundation. Use it in a pinch when you need a little evening out to your skin but don’t have time for foundation, with just a little swipe pores and shine are gone.
