About 2 weeks after purchasing the porefessional I then bought the Laura Mercier primer as it was 100% sold to me by the nice sales assistant in Space NK, who made me believe that I needed this primer! First off this one smells amazing, it smells a bit like sweets but in a perfumey way not a candy shop kind of way. This is a more watery based primer and you can see above it is not tinted. When applying this primer it just feels like you are rubbing a light moisturiser onto your face but I have noticed that It is easy to get carried away with this primer and apply way too much ending up with my face looking drenched haha! This primer makes my Bourjois Paris healthy mix foundation (FYI favourite foundation at the moment) last a good 12 hours, it stays in place and does not separate at all. Even though the Laura Mercier primer is £28 and the porefessional £23.50 which are both very expensive for a primer you get a lot more in the LM (50ml) than the Benefit one (22ml).
I do love both of these primers and can’t believe I didn’t used to use a primer but if I was to repurchase one it would be the Laura Mercier one as I found this primer to work better with my skin, and slightly better value for money.Have you tried either of these primers? What do you think?
