Laura Mercier - Radiance Foundation Primer Review

I've heard a lot about Laura Mercier in a number of the blogs I follow, with both the foundation and primer ranges being highly praised. When I saw I was going to receive this in my Birchbox subscription (I ALWAYS check the spoilers) I was sooo excited. I wanted to try a product out from the range as I find that the brand is priced out of my guilt free price range at around £30 for a foundation, I just cant justify that spend before I know if its a product I will love. 

This primer at full size costs £28 and claims to create a 'soft focus' on the skin and can reduce the look of imperfections whilst leaving your make-up looking fresh and colour true. I've had this for about a month now and i use this almost every day (its a really generous sample size & a little really does go a long way) so i really do feel like i can make an informed comment on the product. 

MEH. I cant really say that it did much for my - it definitely didn't make my skin appear more radiant - maybe my make-up stayed looking fresh for longer but nothing really noteworthy changed about my overall make-up look. I've used much better primers for about 1/3 of the price, so i was really disappointed, Maybe it was too hyped up on-line? Or just not suited for my combination skin? Who knows, but I definitely wont be rushing out to buy it.

 P.S - Birchbox are offering new subscribers a free bracelet when they sign up! & you can cancel your subscription whenever you want.
