L'Oreal Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base is part of a new collection of products born out of the desire to bring the tips and tricks of the professional makeup world to women everywhere.
L'Oreal Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base is a makeup primer
unlike any I've used before. Why? Start with the fact that it's pink.
And the texture–kind of spongy. It's very different than the gel
primers I'm used to using.
It did take several tries with Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base before I was comfortable with the results. Start by taking an amount equivalent to the size of a couple of peas; apply to face and smooth into skin. At first I felt like the primer didn't want to budge, but eventually I got the hang of starting with small, swirling motions and blending outward.
Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base does leave skin feeling soft and smooth, providing a good base to apply makeup. The formula contains lightweight powders, so it gives a matte finish. I do find that my makeup lasts all day (necessary for my long days!) and I haven't had any breakouts from using the product.
L'Oreal Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base retails at $12.95 and is available at drug, discount and mass merchandisers.
