PRODUCT REVIEW: L'OREAL RESURFACING PRIMER

WITH THE PRIMER AND FOUNDATION.

WITH THE PRIMER


Being a Make Up Artist, I am always on the look out for new products, new tricks to improve my craft. Better can always be Best, right? And smooth can always be flawless.

Perhaps trying to find ways to make the base perfect is not a good thing but I will always try new products and tricks to land the kind of base that I think is naturally flawless and beautiful.

I have been using quite a few make up bases already. One that use often in the Silicon Based Primer from INGLOT. It fills up the lines and it is amazing in controlling oil. It was my favourite but it has been dethroned by L'Oreal's Studio Secrets Resurfacing Primer.

L'Oreal's Studio Secrets Resurfacing Primer is for me the primers of all primers. At AED 96 or USD 26, it can for a short period turn back time for some women who have fine lines. It evens out the texture of the skin. You can say goodbye to visible pores. Application of this cream/mousse leaves the skin smooth and almost like silk :). I honestly could not believe how my skin felt after I applied it.

The Product looked a little pink in the jar but when applied its colourless and fragrance free. Another plus for me as this is perfect for women who have sensitive skin.

You can use the product alone or use it as a base for the foundation. When used as a base, it mattifies but it feels like silk.

I used this Primer with the Kryolan paintstick and it somehow provided a film which made the foundation melt into your skin. It is as if you were born with perfect skin. :)

I really don't have anything bad to say about this product, even the fact that it does not come in a box and there was no leaflet in it does not bother me. Why worry about that when you can have flawless skin! :)
