perfect.

By makeupjunkie

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

I've tried every primer out there, and this is the only one I can use on my entire face without feeling like I'm covered in slippery silicone and my makeup is gonna slide right off.

I use this all over my face with my porefessional one the areas I need a bit more help, and it's a perfect combo to perfect my not so perfect skin.

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

    This primer would work best on oily skins. I have normal to combination. You have to be really careful how much you pick up. If you use to much it will show all the dry spots on your skin. Which is fine, I can handle using less but the problem is the primer is so thick like a paste. That I have to literally drag it all over my face. If it was a thinner consistency that would easily glide all over my face I would be ok but it is thick like spreading dryish peanut butter on my face and I hate tugging hard on my skin like that. I don't need to cause any premature aging!! I am switching to a different brand. I wouldn't really recommend this unless I knew that the person had oily skin.

    Not Worth The Buy

    By Cici

    from MS

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

    I had high hopes when buying this, but sadly those hopes felt short. I have combination skin, and the first time I used this my face was going through a dry spell. The texture of this primer seemed to mix in with my dryness and create a huge dry flaky mess. I put it in the back of my makeup drawer and just recently decided to give it another go since my face is not as dry as it was when I first used this product. I wish I would of never given this a second chance. It broke me out like CRAZY. The texture is just not for me, and it felt very heavy on my skin. This is a no go.

    LOVE this stuff!!

    By MakeupFiend17

    from Central FL

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

    This has to be one of the best primers I have ever used. There's a secret to using it correctly though. You just need to scoop a tiny bit out of the jar, get some on your middle finger on each hand and then PRESS /TAP it into your skin. Don't rub it in like other primers. Pressing it in helps it fill in your pores more effectively. A little actually goes a long way when used correctly. I use this on my nose as well as the rest of my T-zone then use one of my other primers on the rest of my face. Keeps me matte, helps control oil and helps my makeup go on easier and stay on longer. Oh and I have combo/oily skin. Forgot to mention that.

      necessity

      By Madison

      from Fairfax, Virginia

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

      I ran out of this and I couldn't find anymore at my Wegmans, so I tried a couple other primers. Neither worked even close to as well as this one however. This one made my foundation look so flawless and amazing, and it made my skin feel so fabulously soft! Can't rave about it enough! I've used at least 3 jars of it so far, and I NEED to find a new one and quick!

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

      This is one of my must-haves. I have oily skin, large pores, and am prone to breakouts. This does not irritate my skin in any way and works like magic to smooth fine lines around my eyes and blur the larger pores on my cheeks. I use under makeup and it helps keep my foundation in place for 8+ hours despite oily skin.

      I used to LOVE this ...

      By Melissa Joy

      from Undisclosed

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

      I used to LOVE this product...it helped keep the face grease to a minimum all day! I raved about it to my twin sister, who bought some about a month ago, and she said it totally didn't work. I thought she must be doing something wrong, but when I ran out of the product last week, I bought more, and it doesn't work anymore! Grease city. Is there a new formula? Is it just a fluke? I don't know, but I need to find something else.
