In Detail L’Oreal Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer Review, Swatches and My Experience
It comes in a cute little black and pink colour cardboard packaging which looks very cute and when you open the box there is a little glass jar inside. The jar is transparent with a black lid on top of it. You can also see the amount of product in your jar. I don’t like the packaging at all as the jar is made up of glass hence it feels very heavy to carry. Also, if you drop the jar once you may end up breaking it.
The packaging is also very unhygienic as you have to dip the finger every time when you use the product. So yes over all a fragile as well as unhygienic packaging.
Coming on to the shades there is only one shade in this primer.
Now starting of with the review as I mentioned earlier they have only one shade in this. Well this primer has a tad bit of pinkness in it so when you apply it, it instantly brightens up the complexion.
Well to let you know I have a combination skin and I usually tend to get oily on my t-zone. Hence when I want my makeup to really last long, I use this primer. It also creates a good base for my foundation and my foundation blends easily into my skin. I like the fact that the primer controls oils very well and helps my makeup stay longer.
The texture of this is like a mousse. It blends like butter in the skin. I won’t be able to tell you the staying power of the primer but definitely it helps to control oil very well and extends the wear time of my makeup by 3 to 4 hours or so.

Do I Recommend L’Oreal Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer
Well honestly speaking I do like this primer but I myself won’t be buying it again as I think it’s too overpriced and the quantity you get is half of what other brands offer. I would prefer buying from some other brand which offers a good price range along with the quantity. Well these days I am quite liking the Lakme absolute blur perfect primer.
1) If you have very oily skin and if you are looking for something that would give a matte effect on your skin use this primer underneath your foundation.
2) To increase the wear time of your makeup use a primer and set your base.
3) To help your makeup glide smoothly you can use this or any other silicon based primer.
