Most Helpful Positive Review Never liked primers before this version
I bought this after trying a free sample and fell in love with how smooth & natural my foundation looked. I've tried other primers in the past but they never felt right - too much "armor" underneath makeup that felt like I was wearing a mask, so I was convinced primers were just marketing hype. But what really sold me was the light reflecting quality with this illuminating version. If you've aging skin, it does diminish the look of wrinkles.
Most Helpful Critical Review Illuminating primer - complete disappointment
I've been a Laura Mercier fan for years but this reformulation is a major disappointment. The primer is minimal illumination and by the time you put the tinted moisturizer on top, the glow is non- existent. So unfortunate. I'm shopping for a new brand.

Please bring back the tinted illuminating moisturizer! The rest of your products don't compare.
Bring Back Foundation Primer Radiance...Please!
Reneep9 from Charleston SC
I bought this two months ago assuming it would be the same product "Foundation Primer Radiance" and I was very, very disappointed. Not the same. Even though the "Pure Canvas Primer-Illuminating" is adequate, it doesn't give the skin much illumination as compared to FPR and the color is much lighter. I loved the deeper color of the FPR and it matched my skin tone perfectly.

Love this product! Gives you a dewy look, just the look I was wanting!
I love this product

I usually use as a base for my foundation. On week ends I just use as a foundation because it gives my face a natural glow.
Bring BACK Tinted Moisturizer Illuminating
JuliAnn from LA
Why did you discontinue this product. It was the best. The poor rating is not for the product, it's for Laura Mercier NOT listening to the requests of many many customers to bring it back.
Not for me
K from Los Angeles, CA
Really wanted to love this! But it did nothing for me and my makeup just broke up on top of it and looked terrible! Also, I know this is a radiant type product but really wanted something that added that dewy-ness and yet still had SOME kind of at least BASIC oil control for the t-zone too. This product was not for me.
Haven't decided yet ..

Why get rid of a great product
nunu from Missouri
I decided to try this product because my makeup didn't go on as smooth as it used to and didn't hold up very well as the day went on. This creates a nice smooth finish and gives my skin a youthful glow! I will definitley buy again!
Adventureprincess from Idaho
Very hydrating, illuminating, and blurring. I am super impressed with this product.
My Favorite Primer!
Iz from MI
I let my moisturizer sit a good 5-10 mins before I put this on and then I wait another min before foundation. I don't ever have to powder my nose so this seems to do a really good job of combatting excessive oil production.
Why did you discontinue Radiance Bronze primer?
Kris742 from Seattle
Please bring back Radiance Bronze primer! It was the BEST! The color wasn't orange, gave a perfect bronze sunkissed tint! Also the new packaging looks so bland, the original packaging was so much sleeker!
not as good as before

This adds such a nice beautiful glow to your makeup. I absolutely love this!!!
ButtercupTX from Houston, TX
This primer is great! I love how it smoothens out the surface of my skin. Because it's water-based, it feels light; feels like my skin could breathe. Also have a natural glow! Definitely going to reorder this when I'm finished with my bottle.

Bring back Tinted Moisturizer Illuminating Radianc
LindaM from Jacksonville FL
I got a free sample, and have been using it every day, I LOVE IT! Now I find that I can't order it, as it has been discontinued. What is with Laura Mercier? I would definitely recommend this product if you could find it.
Love this Primer!
Leah Natasha from Canada
I love how it makes my skin looks fresh and glowing, doesn't cause breakouts. Looks great for everyday use and no makeup days. Sometimes I like to mix with your Perfecting Primer. I only wish it was available in the travel size.
Anna from England
Bring back the OLD illuminating tinted moisturiser, had it since launched many years ago. Many seem to agree.
This is great! Your face feels amazing!
Puma from Houston
This is a great primer... light but very effective!!
Why change a good thing?
spatel5890 from Louisiana
I'm so disappointed that there no longer is the Radiance Illuminating Primer. It was the only product I loved and was using it for the past 5 years. Gave me healthy looking coverage without adding foundation if needed. BUT NO MORE. Wish it be relaunched back as original form.
