L’Oreal has released a new primer for our faces, the new Base Magique Transforming Soother Primer.Â What’s a primer I hear you say?Â A primer is used to mask wrinkles, crevices and uneven textures in the skin before foundation is applied and conceals most of the skins irregularities. It also helps your make-up stay on for longer.
Thanks to a high concentration of elastomers, L\’Oreal Paris Base magique Transforming Soother Primer gives skin an even surface. The soft powders of the formula also help absorb and thereby mattify the skin to reduce shine. The finishing touch? Smooth to touch and with a silk like feel, silicon oil enables easy gliding application with no greasy residue.
As usual, L\’Oreal has delivered a high end product for a fair price. It\’s thicker than most Primers and therefore takes a little longer to apply, but has a soft velvet finish! Only negative is that it comes in a little pot rather than a bottle. Always remember that any skin care that comes like this is less hygienic than pump bottles because as you re-apply, you\’re putting bacteria from your fingers back into the remainder of the product.
Primer comes after cleansing, toning and moisturising and before you apply ANY make up. Apply by rubbing between fingers and spreading in a thin layer over the entire face, or just the areas where make up doesn\’t last quite as long (such as chin, lips and eyelids).
Handy Hint: Mix your Primer with your foundation on the back of your hand and use a foundation brush to apply the mixture. This ensures even coverage and lets you get more out of a foundation you may be running out of or is a little too dark for your skin tone.
Base L\’Oreal Paris Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer is suitable for most skin types, however if you are prone to exceptionally oily skin it is recommended to use the primer only around the eye area. It is available for an RRP of $29.95 from selected pharmacies, variety and department stores now, for your nearest stockist call 1300 659 259.
