Review: L'Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base.

Hey everyone!

So, I wanted to review a product and feature a sale at the same time, so, I figured what better timing! Recently, I bought L'Oreal's new primer.

It's in their Studio Secrets line, which is kind of an updated version of the L'Oreal HIP line. The thing that drew me in to this primer was consistency. This product is more of a balm or creme versus your standard gel or lotion primer. I was kind of hesitant at first, since I wasn't sure how nice this would be on oily or acne-prone skin, which is what I have. However, I'm glad I bought it.

This product is amazing! I've been using it daily since I first cracked it open and I love it! One thing I have to use this for is my undereye area. I hate when my concealer gets all cracked and fills in lines I have in my undereye, especially since since I'm 20. This wiped under my eye makes my concealer glide right across and work perfectly.

When I used it all over, I didn't notice my face having an increased oil production like I get with a lot of silicone-based primers. It didn't hold back my oil as well as I would've hoped, but it did a decent job. It also does a good job at almost adding a soft-focus finish to any marks or uneven skintone you have.

Overall, I really like this product and it's something I'd buy again. The main reason I wanted to tell you about this is that Walgreens is having a Saturdate with Beauty for L'Oreal this Saturday at your local Walgreens from 10am-5pm. Normally, these events entail testers, free gifts, sales, and coupons. So, what's not to love? It'll also be featuring the L'Oreal color correcting primers, Double Extend Keratin products, and EverStrong/EverPure haircare.

I hope everyone has a good Saturdate! :D
