I know I was MIA for such a long long time but then I was really busy in shifting my abode (in Mumbai itself) and resolving internet issues at my new place. I must say shifting wears you out completely. And I so much missed writing my blog during this phase though I was regular in checking out updates of my favourite bloggers.
I bought so many beauty products during this period and can't wait to share my reviews on them .
Starting with I will be reviewing my very first Primer : L'oreal Paris Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer.
15 ml for Rs. 899/-
L'oreal claims: Smoothness you can Touch , Transformation you can see, even up close !
BASE MAGIQUE transforming smoothing primer instantly smooths pores and creates an even surface, so that you get a more flawless makeup result that lasts. The silky lightweight formula glides onto skin and minimises the look of pores and fine lines to transform your skin surface. Dermatologically tested.
My take on the product
Going with the definition of primer, it is a base product use for applying foundation and other makeup products on the face. A primer is essential to hold your foundation for hours and keep the skin oil and grease free. Being a novice in the makeup area, this is my first primer product.
L'oreal Base Magique Primer comes in a transparent jar packaging with a black screw on lid. Packaging is sturdy and travel friendly. It's a light rose coloured product, very smooth and silky in touch mainly because of the silicones loaded in it. The primer has a thick velvety texture and once applied on a face , it has to be blended thoroughly otherwise it leaves white particles behind.
It is very smooth in touch and does not leave any trail of oiliness or greasiness on the face. However , in my case where I have a combination skin, I need to well moisturise my skin before applying it otherwise it leaves a white cast behind.
Because of its light rose colour, it gives a soft glow to the skin and works well on smoothing fine lines and small pores. However it does not work on large pores. But I must say it holds my foundation well. My foundation applied with the primer remains steady for 4-5 hours ( And this is when temperature is soaring high in Mumbai ; in a relatively better weather it may remain steady for a longer time). Most of the time when I have to get ready for a casual outing , I apply the primer alone and it quite preps up my face. The best part about it is that it controls the oil on my face and to some extent works as a mattifier.
Since a very small quantity of this product is required for application, this jar is going to go a long way in my case. Too bad, these days I am really liking to experiment with the new products.
L'oreal Base Magique is a everyday wearable primer and a good option for the ones looking for some smoothness and a soft glow on their skin. The only downside is that it requires quite a amount of blending and may not work that well on dry skinned beauties.
Light Rose colored velvety texture
My rating for this product :4/5
Will I repurchase it : This jar is going to go a long way.
