Makeup primers for me are a must-have, which is why I was so excited to try L’Oreal’s new Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base. I wear my makeup for so long during the work day – minimum of 12 hours – so it’s important to me for my face to look just as good at 4pm that it does at 7am. It’s an extra step in my routine that makes such a difference.
L’Oreal’s latest comes in a small pot and is light pink in color. The base glides onto the skin like silk and feels lightweight. I think application is key to achieving a lightweight finish though. I like to use a flat foundation brush to blend it into the skin. The first time I used it with my fingers it didn’t feel right. But once I found my groove with the brush, I was hooked. It controls oil so well and gives skin a matte finish. My Revlon Photo Ready glided on like a dream and my complexion appeared flawless!
My mom and I both bought this at a recent Ulta shopping trip and she likes it just as much, if not more, than I do. Her pores are much larger than mine and she said this hides them better than any other primer. I’ve seen this at CVS, Walgreens and Ulta for about $12. If you struggle with oily skin or large pores, this is absolutely worth a try! The verdict is definitely “love it!”
