I know suncreen is applied after moisturizer, but how is the outcome after primer? I've noticed after too many products- eye cream, serum, moisturizer, sunscreen, primer, foundation- i tend to look cakey. Would it be ok to mix the sunscreen with primer?

on Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion+ Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ For Face/Body
I think mixing the two products would bring down the SPF. Generally, I do serum, moisturizer, sunscreen - then on to makeups and primers. Giving time for the products to really soak in there is key.

This product is so thin that I don't see it having a problem going on over your primer. Or you might try Bobbi Brown's 50 SPF primer, that I use.
I've used it along with primer and moisturizer and it's never even been a slight problem. I would say absolutely this sunscreen is okay to use with a primer, it is fabulous.
I would not mix this with primer bc it'll dilute the protection, but also I am guessing that they would not mix very well.
I actually do not use primer with this shiseido sun protection lotion because I find that I don't need it. (I wear primer when I am wearing "regular" moisturizer) This lotion leaves a matte but not dull or pasty finish. This lotion dries to a smooth finish that seems to inhibit oil breakthrough during the day. I do not use foundation, but apply concealer, cream blush and mineral veil over this lotion. I only use oil blot strips once a day, whereas with regualr moisturizer + primer, I usually need to blot my t-zone 2-3 times during the day.

I use this as a moisturizer and spf. I do use a night cream (by REN) so my skin is hydrated in the am and this gives it the perfect amount of additional moisture. So you may not need to apply a second moisturizer. Makeup and primer go on after the spf (asked a Sephora rep too).
