L'Oreal Paris Studio Secrets Professional Primer: A Mousse to Smooth EverythingSunday, May 23, 2010
I seem to be on a major primer kick lately, I want to test every thing out on the market! Here's another great one, this time from L'Oreal. While a tad more expensive than other mass market primers, the extra money does seem to really be worth it in my opinion.
This primer is not the typical silicon based primer. First, it is a light opaque pink, and it feels spongy. Very similar to a mousse. Truly. It only needs a small amount, I just spread a pea sized amount on my t-zone with a finger tip. Perfect. Wait a minute or so before applying foundation (too soon and it does seem like the foundation will slip off), but application is perfect with almost every foundation. Pores and fine lines are just eliminated, which I love! It does help with wear (pretty much all day with this primer), and it is somewhat mattifying but not to the same extent as MoM. I have found that this primer is a must if you are going to do the MoM trick for matte skin. Without it the primer great foundation application is pretty difficult, and silicone primers love to pill over the MoM. The L'Oreal applies beautifully as though the MoM wasn't even there.
This is definitely a primer that I'll be keeping in my makeup drawer permanently.
