Review: Loreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base
The silky, lightweight formula glides onto skin, leaving it velvety-smooth to the touch.
The result-a unified matte finish that's flawless.
-Suitable for all skin types
Application: Smooth on in a gentle circular motion over the whole face or targeted areas. Wear alone or apply under makeup to help makeup go on smoother.
Where to buy: Walmart, Target, Kmart, Drugstores and anywhere else Loreal products are sold.
Size: 0.5 fl. oz.
My Rating: 3 Peace Signs
The Good: I would agree that it does just about everything it claims except obviously not hide all imperfections (for example: acne scars) and I don't really have lines so I can't say it smoothes them. It does definitely make my skin look more even in texture and SO unbelievably soft! My powder foundation glides on perfectly. I also like to wear this on days when I'm not wearing any makeup. A little goes a long way and it blends very well.
The Bad: The matte finish that it claims to do only lasts for a few hours with makeup on so if you have oily skin like me this doesn't really help with that. Also since it's winter my skin has been getting a few dry patches that even exfoliating won't help and with this primer it makes them stand out even more.
Overall: I do like this and it would definitely be great for those days where you aren't going to be wearing any makeup or not for that long. I think it would be better for those whose skin isn't as oily as mine or not at all.
