L'Oreal Magic Perfecting Base Primer

  1. I Simply LOVE IT!!
    Being I'm older than most around here,I'm getting bumps & pores showing more than I like. I've tried many,many primers. All helped the make up, but not my skin. This L'Oreal Primer is magic!! It makes my skin soooo smooth. I want a lifetime supply!! :smile:
     
  2. Does it work on oily skin?
     
  3. Yes it does. Mine is more on the oily side & it works great! :smile:
     
  4. Do you think this might work well on keeping eyeshadow on better? I have a serious oil lid and crease problem with shadow.
     
  5. i have this primer, i agree--it is AMAZING. i have used expensive primers, nothing compares to this one. i LOVE IT.


    ETA: i also have oily skin--this helps me look matte.
     
  6. I agree - it is a great drugstore primer. I will say that I hate the packaging (wish it came in a tube) and that you got more for your money, but I would repurchase if I ran out.
     
  7. Hmmm prolly not. I use a shadow base for that. Have you tried one of those?
     
  8. Yea good points. It seems to run out pretty fast. Uggh! But it is pretty GOOD stuff!
     
  9. ok this may sound ridiculous but can you use this primer without makeup? will it even make any difference in the appearance or feel of your skin?

    i never wear makeup, but gosh this product sounds amazing lol.

  11. I have before and I have very deep skin (my foundation is MUFE HD 185), and me skin is so matte that I will just put on a touch of illuminator and go!
     
  12. Yes you can definitely wear it without makeup. It'll just your skin look polished and matte. :smile:
     
  13. Ms'M are you still using this?

  14. This and Revlon PhotoReady perfecting primer at my HGs. Like most of you, I have tried a million primers, and this is hands-down the BEST of them. It gives a totally matte, smooth finish. I prefer it over Smashbox Photo Finish any day!
     
  15. ^I am not thrilled with Smashbox PhotoFinish myself. I use the light formulation, and it really doesn't do much at all to help my skin stay matte. I'm forcing myself to use all of the jumbo tube I bought (it's getting close to empty, finally!), then I'm trying something else. I received a sample of the L'oreal primer in one of my magazines, and it seemed to work pretty well on my oily skin. The only thing that bothered me was that it felt a bit thick, which made it kind of hard to rub into my skin without feeling like I was being too rough with my skin. Is the formulation that thick in the regular-sized containers?
