Hello, everyone! As they say, for a perfect painting a perfect canvas is required and that goes exactly the same for our face. To get our makeup right, the base which can hold makeup for a long time has to be perfect and the primer does the exact job of giving us long lasting flawless makeup. To be honest I was never into priming my face before applying makeup. I was happy with my BB cream and a compact to set everything. But a while ago my sister got L'Oreal Paris Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer and as always, I have to try any beauty product that comes home. So without much further ado, let's jump into the review.

My Experience With L'Oreal Paris Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer:

The primer comes in a cute transparent mini glass jar which is sturdy and travel-friendly. The only problem with tub packaging is that you have to dip your fingers to take the product out which becomes little messy as it gets into your nails (especially long nails).

The primer has a soft light pinkish color to it which gives a soft glow to the face without leaving any white or pinkish cast on the face. The color doesn't even show on the face. The texture has a very thick consistency almost like a thick paste. At first, I thought the primer to be greasy or waxy but to my surprise it is not at all sticky or greasy. In fact, it glides smoothly on the face when applied and feels powdery. It is easily absorbed by the skin in no time giving a flawless base for makeup.

The primer is velvety and super duper soft. It makes the face feel like a feather. It does not exactly hide the pores as it claims but it does blur the fine lines and perfectly minimizes the look of pores on the face. I have a combination skin, occasionally get pimples and I don't suffer from large pores as such. So sometimes I just apply my face cream and after that I apply this primer and I am good to go. It stays on me for good 7-8 hours without touch-up. On occasions when I have to apply makeup, the foundation sets on face perfectly without making the face look cakey.

As it claims that it creates an even base for the makeup, it surely does stick to it. The primer does a good job in mattifying the face. But it won't be much suitable for dry skin beauties as it may intensify the dry areas. For dry skin, you need to moisturize your skin really well.

Pros Of L'Oreal Paris Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer:
  • Easy to spread and apply on face.
  • Pea size amount is needed so it will last a long time.
  • Super smooth and velvety soft.
  • Gives a matte finish.
  • Controls oil sebum.
  • Stays on the face for 7-8 hours.
  • Blurs fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
  • Minimizes open pores.
  • Did not break me out.
  • Gives an instant glow.

Cons Of L'Oreal Paris Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer:
  • Contains silicon which might not be suitable for sensitive skin.
  • Dry skin girls need to moisturize well.
  • Comes in a jar packaging which is a little messy but with the consistency like that, I can't imagine the primer in a tube form.

Final Note:

Overall I am very much happy with the primer. It smoothes the skin and gives a perfect finish to the makeup. It controls oil and mattifies the face. It's a must-have product and should be included in our CTM routine.
