    I love this face primer! I have used a lot of different brands/kinds, and this seems to hold up the best. I have oily skin and this primer controls oil and improves the look of my skin with each use.
    Goes on silky smooth and doesn't cause breakouts. I was running out and went out and bought another to have on hand. I hope they keep making this primer!

        I've used a lot of primers, and this is the one I keep coming back to, right after kicking myself for straying to see if there is one better. It just works. Very well.

            I have been on the prowl for the perfect make-up primer for my oily skin. I decided to try this bargain primer becuase of the great reviews. For me, it turned out to only be OK. You can definitely acheive a good look with this primer, but the application is everything. The product has a light, dry mousse-like texture. However, it adheres to the skin surface quickly, so it is easy to end up with too much of it in spots if you don't take the time to smooth it into your skin. This can result in a very unnatural look as your foundation and powder will cling to it alomst like it is a patch of dry skin. This won't happen if you take the time to blend it in well. It does feel nice on the skin surface and you will stay relatively shine free all day if you have oily skin. That said, there are much better primers on the market, but this one will do if you looking for a bargain.

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

                The texture is a very thick, almost gummy paste. Had to stop using it as a facial primer because it causes gummy smears when it comes in contact with liquid foundation. Said gummy smears do not blend out, and have to be scraped off. Does not apply easily, but is best smoothed out with fingers after being spread with a designated concealer brush, that I've found. Definitely clumps with brushes, and IN the brushes. I am attempting to use this up as an eyeshadow primer, but the tacky finish makes for difficult blending, so I have to lay down a neutral base shadow over this for best application. Still get creases, although not as bad as without any primer. Does improve gel liner application.

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

                  I love this product. A little goes a long way. I was a little weary of the price when I saw how small the bottle was but once I used it and saw how little was needed I was ok with it. It was difficult to apply at first, mostly because i was applying way too much. I use my hands and it works fine. I've used brushes too (flat top and real techniques expert face) and it works fine. It lessens the appearance of pores and evens out my skin. I sometimes even wear just this during the day. It mattifies my face and makes it look amazing. I will continue to purchase this.
