Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Protect.

I am a big fan of Laura Mercier's foundation primers, both the Foundation Primer and Foundation Primer Radiance. She just launched a new one and as I have been using it ever since I received it, I am obviously a big fan of this one too. Meet Foundation Primer Protect.

This primer is great because it not only preps the skin for flawless makeup application and holds foundation, keeping makeup fresh and color-true for hours, but it also protects it from the suns harmful rays. It does that because it includes SPF 30.

This is so smart, because there are some moisturizers and foundations that just don't have the sun protection factor, and this is vital for everyday. I love that using it in a primer gives us another option for protection. Especially when it is put in such a great oil-free formula such as this.

The primer formula glides on my skin evenly with its lightweight, creamy gel feel. It truly helps to create the  perfect canvas for makeup application. It minimizes the appearance of imperfections and pores for a smooth, natural finish, and creates this bond like "buffer" to outside elements that expertly holds foundation and keeps it in place all day.

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Protect retails for $32.00 and is available now at and Sephora.
