Today I am going to be reviewing a face primer from L’Oreal Studio Secrets range.
I have had it for a while so I thought I would share my views on the product with you all.
PRICE: $12.99 USD
PACKAGING: It comes in a glass jar with a black lid on it. And as you open it you can see the product has the faintest pink color to it.
As you can see I am almost halfway done with the product and now another challenge I am facing is to using the product without it getting under my nails. That is a common problem with the products that come in a jar, cant really help it.
WHAT L’Oreal says about the product: Get the perfect skin texture, instantly and all day. The silky, lightweight formula glides onto skin and minimizes the look of pores and fine lines. Skin looks and feels smoothed and resurfaced. The result is a unified matte finish that’s flawless. Suitable for all skin types. Dermatologist tested. Non-comedogenic.
When I first touched the product it felt so creamy I almost felt like I was using a face cream instead of the face primer. Anyhow, I started applying it on the face and blended it, and then I touched my face. It was so smooth and butter like, not greasy butter like but smooth butter like that I wanted to apply some more of it, just because of the way it made my skin feel.
It instantly covered the pores around my cheeks, (although I dont have big pores to cover, but whatever little I do it did cover them pretty well) and also smoothed out any other unevenness on the face and I could see my face looking soft and smooth.
However,I did not find this primer to increase the longevity of the foundation, which one would associate a primer to do, but then neither does L’oreal claim it to doing so.
It is a primer which smoothes out the skin and cover your pores and any other uneven surface on the face and provides a smooth canvas for the foundation to go on.
You have to use to understand when I say it is so soft and so smooth on the face , you almost want to reapply it or want to keep touching your face.
The foundation blended on perfectly over this primer for me, I have no issues there, my only area of concern is the fact that it doesnt help the foundation stay on longer than the foundation itself intends to. You may need to apply a setting spray to make the foundation last all day.
But then I dont generall have to wear a foundation for that long at a time, so this product works just ine for me.
Even if you have oily skin I would recommend this product as it does mattify the face and takes care of the excess oil.
OVERALL VERDICT: I quiet like it for the way it makes my skin so very smooth and poreless after application. I might repurchase it.
Until next time…
