Good drugstore primer

By Hannah

from WV

Pros

    Cons

    • Hard to evenly distribute onto face/skin

    Best Uses

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

      This is definitely one of the better primers that can be found at the drugstore. The only negative I can say is that it's extremely thick and hard to spread evenly on the skin.

          I absolutely am obsessed with this primer. I only use it on my forehead where I have really deep wrinkle lines. I put it on before my foundation and I swear it's like my wrinkles are gone!! They do eventually come back throughout the day, but it keeps my makeup from settling in those fine lines throughout the whole day. It's amazing!!!!

            Unless I'm using too much, it doesn't soak in. It just keeps smearing and smearing. I even try to let it dry. I then apply my foundation and it just mixes and rubs around and just sits on your face. No matter how much I try to get it to apply evenly and soak in, it doesn't. It leaves almost unevenly patches on your face. Not worth the money and it's pricey!

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

              I received a sample of a name brand expensive primer and it was my first time ever using a primer. I really liked the coverage it gave me. I used to be extremely oil and tried to apply as little on my face as possible but now that I am older (almost 50) I'm not near as oily as I used to be but can still get some shine. I decided to use this primer because cost was 1/3 of the expensive one and I was a little leery of how it would go on, etc but it feels just as good as the expensive one, it is not heavy, if is not greasy, and I love the finish it give my skin before I apply the foundation. I would recommend it to anyone.

                        I use it every day, love the appropriate pricing, amount; the only improvement I would make is
                        that it could be easier to spread, more gel-like.
                        But it is a performer, blurs color and pores and makes make-up look flawless!

                                Hi there! Thanks for reaching out. Our Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base is like a primer. Please apply a separate moisturizer before using this product. Apply this product each morning on bare skin after your moisturizer has absorbed completely into skin. Apply dot by dot and blend in a gentle circular motion over the whole face or to targeted areas: Under-eye to smooth over fine lines. Nose and cheeks to minimize appearance of pores and blemishes. T-zone for a matte result. We hope this helps!
