|L'Oreal Base Magique.|
|L'Oreal's first primer in the market. The first primer in my train case.|
I had no qualms using it on my eyelids, either. The Base Magique does a thorough job in concealing fine lines that I won't be needing a separate eye primer anymore.
|Check out my eyelids. The lines are almost invisible!|
True to its promise, Base Magique did a great job in transforming my skin - making my face a smooth and even canvas. Putting my make-up on has never been easier. I didn't even have to worry about creasing and
breaking out; in fact, I was able to turn things around and make this concealer work on my face!
On its own, Base Magique already gives a semi-matte, natural glow to your face. You can actually do without a foundation or setting powder. In my case, just BB cream on top of the primer worked fine. An for an arid, hot as hell day like today, skipping the foundation in my makeup routine was quite a relief.

In summary, here's what I have to say about L'Oreal's Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer.
Non-greasy, lightweight texture
Easy to blend
Softens and smoothens the skin
Non-drying, and doesn't make your face oily
Gives the face a natural, youthful glow
A little amount goes a long way
Can be used as an eye primer
Can be used on its own (ergo, no need for a foundation)
It comes in a jar, which could be quite unhygienic since you have to dip your fingers in it. There's also a risk of exposing the product to dirt and dust each time you uncap it.
It's made of elastomers, so be wary of using this product if you're skin is highly sensitive or allergic to silicon. (I have very sensitive skin, and surprisingly, I had no adverse reactions to this product.)
My only regret with the Base Magique?
Why haven't I used it sooner?! (Hehe.)
PS... If you've noticed, I'm using a new lipstick. Lip Butter, actually. But I'll save the rave for another entry. :)
