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

      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.

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

      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.

      Good drugstore primer

          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!

                  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.
