Yes, it is a primer with skincare benefits so you do not need another primer with it :-)

It is both a primer and Skincare item. It corrects as it primes.

The lady at the Lancôme counter told me that this is a combination of a primer and a skin treatment but I use this as a primer. It works well with foundation and CC creams, and provides a smooth base for makeup application. I have also noticed a mattifying effect that may work well with those with an oiler complexion.

This does have silicone in it and is similar in texture to most primers if not silkier.

It's more of a serum consistency- not as thick as a lotion. Don't know about the silicone.

Chock full of silicones! If you are sensitive, beware. This does not have a lotion like consistency. It sits on the skin like any other silicone primer.

Can it be used as primer?
Is it possible to skip the primer, and apply foundation after using this since it aims to even the tone?

I do use Lancome Visionnaire as my face primer. I allow it to set for a couple of minutes before applying my foundation. Visionnaire helps to smooth over my visible pores and it diminishes the ruddiness in my cheeks.

You can definitely use this as a primer. It's a primer and treatment in one.

Question
Says it Exfoliates, flaking skin problems?
The Lancome site says it's a skin care treatment not a primer. Yet, the instructions don't tell you to apply before primer.

Just says apply before foundation. Lancome ladies are selling this as a skin care & foundation primer.

If it's going to have exfoliating ingredients, will my skin 'exfoliate' and get flaky under foundation?

Do some primers have exfoliating chemicals in them that I didn't know about?

It is considered to be a primer with skincare benefits. I have never had any issue with flaking since using it. I think if you exfoliate regularly and keep consistent with your skin routine you won't have any problem. I love the way my makeup looks over Blur and getting some additional skin benefits is great too!

It is both a skin item and a primer. While it's priming, it also provides brightening and texture/pore repairing Skincare.

I use this before my primer. I let it absorb, then put on concealer, then primer and then the makeup.

Question
Blur vs Smashbox Photo Finish
I have been using Smashbox primer for ages--would this product be used instead of Smashbox or can you use both at the same time? Anyone that has used both and can comment on which one they prefer and why?

I have the Smashbox primer, as well, and what I have done is apply the Blur, let it set for 1 minute, apply my foundation, and then dab a little of the Smashbox primer just under my eyes before I put on my under-eye concealer. I know some ladies prefer to put concealer on first, but I use a liquid foundation and have found that the Smashbox primer over the foundation creates a perfectly smooth canvas for me to carefully brush on my concealer. If you use a mineral/powder foundation, I'm not sure how it would wear. But the Lancôme Blur is awesome and is far better at smoothing out your complexion that Primer alone.

I haven't used it with another primer. It is a primer with skincare benefits, so I don't think it is necessary.

I found this product to not live up to its claims at all. I would not consider layering it with the Smashbox. I think the two together would be too thick and too gummy. Consider Clarins Beauty Flash Balm instead.

Visionairre CX is a serum that goes under your moisturizer. Blur has skincare benefits similar to the serum just not as intense, but also functions as your makeup primer. La Base is a traditional primer. If you like the idea of a primer that also takes care of your skin, go with Blur, it is amazing in the skin even without makeup! A little goes a long way! You don't need both Blur and La Base together. It's all about choices!

Visionnaire is a serum that works from below and above to correct imperfections. La Base is a great basic primer that gives a flawless look. Visionnaire Blur is a primer with half of the beneficial properties of the serum while acting as a instant pore filler, soft focused texture corrector. You can use Visionnaire serum and blur together, but not blur and la base together as they are both silicone based primers and would not sit well together.

According to Lancôme staff, this is a combination of both a primer and a serum/skin treatment. I use this as a primer. I moisturize first then apply this and it works well under my foundation and CC cream. I was told that it provides ongoing skin benefits, but I haven't really noticed that yet perhaps that's because I already use the Visionnaire serum nightly (which I think is terrific!).

I've tried both. The Porefessional is a much better product at a better price. Porefessional blurred my lines and filled pores much better, it isn't heavily fragranced and it doesn't break me out. Can't say the same for the Lancome.

I think Clarins Beauty Flash Balm and Lancome's Visionnaire are both great products. My experience has been that Beauty Flash Balm is a light creamy formula which leaves skin feeling moisturized, but yet it helps my foundation to wear longer throughout the day, and it gives my skin a dewy finish (but not oily). I have visible pores and I don't think Beauty Flash Balm does much to diminish the look of my pores. Whereas, Lancome's Visionnaire is a thicker formulation. This primer does diminish the look of my pores and it minimizes the ruddiness in my cheeks. I hope this is helpful.

They are very different products. Whereas the Beauty Flash Balm is a lotion like consistency and actually absorbs into my skin, this product is just a glorified silicone primer. I got a deluxe sample and I hated it. It smells awful, very heavily fragranced. And it broke my skin out very bad. I think Benefit's Porefessional is a much better product at a better price. This didn't blur lines significantly and it didn't add any vibrance to my skin. I was thoroughly unimpressed with this product. If you like the Flash Balm, stick with it. This doesn't compare.

Is it good for dry skin??

I have dry skin, some visible fine lines and large pores. A Sephora MUA recommended I purchase it. Have to say that this primer works well with my dry skin, and I live in the desert. So dry skin is definitely challenging.
I apply this primer after my moisturizer has set for a couple for minutes. I then let this set for a minute or two before applying foundation. This primer does a good job of not drying out my face -- no flakeys at end of the day -- and it smooths over the pores on my nose and my fine lines. Of course everyone's skin is different, but I would say definitely give this a try.

This works extremely well for dry skin. It can be applied on top of your moisturizer before foundation application or simply worn on it's own.

Helps reduce redness?
I know this is supposed to help even out skin tone but does it do anything to blur redness too? I find my face to be flushed every now and then, especially when I'm super tired.
