    This primer is great. Its a little difficult to apply. But once you get it going and it starts to warm up it spreads easy.

      Comments about L'Oréal Studio Secrets Professional Secret No.1 Magic Perfecting Base:

      This is the only primer that has worked on my skin (I am oily through the T-zone). It keeps my forehead from becoming shiny and it keeps my makeup on really well. I have tried multiple more expensive primers and have never been as happy as I am with this one. I will continue to use this forever.

        Absolutely love this product! It creates an amazing smooth canvas on my face, it fills in pores, makes my foundation last longer, smooths my smile lines. I have tried Benefit's the porefessional before using this and the L'Oréal magic perfecting base tops it by 100. This primer works really well with my combination skin.

          Comments about L'Oréal Studio Secrets Professional Secret No.1 Magic Perfecting Base:

          So, I bought this after reading about it and was so excited to try it. It is a very small amount for the cost, but I figured, if it works well, no big deal. It feels very velvety on the skin when you use it and is very lightweight. However, it gives your skin a very dull look. I am not a fan of that, I prefer a healthy glow. I tried this with a new foundation first, which was the L'Oréal Infallible, and it didn't even last until noon. My make up was spotty and patchy. I thought maybe it was just the cheap foundation, so I tried it under my it cosmetics cc cream, and it created the same problem.... which I have NEVER experienced with the cc cream before. Maybe it is just my skin, but it doesn't work well for me and I will not buy again.

              Goes on very smooth with a silky however, I wish this product came in different skin tones instead of just soft white. It DOES blend but can leave a faint shade of white which for me, is a bit of an issue due to the fact I sometimes like to go without foundation and just finish my face off with a little powder .

              This primer feels great but it's heavy on the skin and doesn't mix well with certain foundations, it slides around on my skin once the foundation is applied.

              I love this primer because I have an oily t zone and it helps to take away the oils. It works better than some high end primers and it lasts for awhile. It also does not cause me to breakout like other high end primers.

                  Hi Cami! Our Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base is not waterproof. You can use this product if you have combination skin. This primer will create a smooth canvas for your makeup. We do not recommend replacing this product with your moisturizer. You should apply your moisturizer first, let it sink in and than apply the primer. We hope this helps!
