Holy Grail – L’Oreal Paris Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer

A primer is one of the most important products in every girl’s makeup stash. Why? Because a primer minimises open pores, creates a barrier between the natural skin and base makeup. It creates a smooth canvas for makeup application. It improves the staying power of the makeup. I am a big fan of primers and love trying out new ones as I have oily skin and primer helps me from breakouts too. My most favourite primer is from L’oreal Paris.

It comes in a tiny glass tub . The texture of the primer is thick so it cannot come in a tube I guess. I find it unhygienic to put my fingers into the tub every time.


It is a thick white cream that spreads easily and instantly reduces pores and makes skin soft and smooth. It has no strong fragrance. It keeps my skin oil and shine free for nearly 4 to 5 hours in summer and that’s a huge plus. My makeup remains fresh over this except for the nose area in extreme humid conditions.

It is definitely one of the best primers available in India. If you have dry skin, you might not prefer this as it is more of a mattifying primer with oil control. It can emphasise dry areas. But for combination and oily skin, this is godsend.
