Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Radiance VS. PIXI Flawless Beauty Primer available at Target.
I received a sample of the PIXI primer in my target beauty bag and I had a deluxe size of the Laura Mercier from a Sephora purchase I made where I redeemed 100 Beauty Insider Points. Here is what I have to share with you all.
Similarities: Finishes are luminous with a golden undertone.
Break Down: When I originally spoke about the PIXI primer it cost $30
for a 1.01 oz at Target. I was shocked by the price tag because it made
the Laura Mercier much more appealing at $32 for a 1.7 oz. I have since
checked and the PIXI primer has been reduced to $22. My initial thought
was, great I should pick up that PIXI primer. But even with the price
reduction that makes the PIXI primer $21.78/oz and Laura Mercier
the price reduction the higher end Laura Mercier still wins out! I never
thought I would be posting a dupe where the high end is more worth it.

Verdict: The primers perform very similarly but with the price per oz
being less with Laura Mercier, I would obviously opt for that one.
I must emphasize that these primers look best on film. They help your
skin catch light, giving a person's face more depth. However in person
or flash photography they may be less flattering (very shiny) so
consider this before making your purchase. I discovered this when I was
less than thrilled trying the Laura Mercier but when I went to film a
YouTube video I was blown away with how glowing and healthy my face
