I'm not somebody who uses primers on a regular basis. My skin is quite dry and my pores are normal size and I don't see the necessity. I also need quite a solid medium coverage and I try to not layer too much. I already have quite an intricate skin care routine!
I do however love a nice healthy glow, so when I had the occasion to exchange my sephora points for a deluxe sample I was trilled! Laura Mercier is all about the skin and she has a very good selection of primers. She has two radiance primer, a pinkish shade and this bronze shade.
The first time I applied the radiance bronze I was chocked in a good way by the pigmentation. I don't think this particular shade was intended for really pale ladies like me. (I'm around an NC15) Now I mix it with my foundation and it warms up nicely the shade and gives a really nice glow.
With my foundation mixed with the primer
Overall, I really like this primer. It's a very nice creamy texture that doesn't feel at all like silicone. It can be used under, mixed or over foundation. I do find the price in Belgium outrageous compared to the United States though. I might purchase it when I run out, but not at over 40 euros!
