L'Oreal Paris Magic Perfecting Base Face Primer

RATING (out of 5 stars): 2.5 stars

COST: $12.99

THE SKINNY: L'Oreal Paris Magic Perfecting Base Face Primer worked exceptionally well. It provided great all-day coverage and kept my makeup in place -- even in the summer heat.

But I did not like the feel of the product during application. It was thick and goopy -- even thicker than my moisturizer. It almost felt like applying sunscreen. (For comparison my normal primer is super thin and smooth and I do not feel like I am doubling up on lotion.)

The coverage though might make this product worth trying again. Maybe the texture was the result of coming off a card?

The base smoothed all the imperfections in my skin and gave me coverage that I really did not excerpt from a drugstore product.

KEEP OR TOSS: Although I did not like the texture, this is something I would try again.

CHECK IT OUT: L'Oreal Paris Magic Perfecting Base Face Primer is available at drug- and grocery stores. You can also read more and buy online.
