For as long as I can remember I've always preferred to use matt foundations and products in general, but recently I've started to prefer the more awake, dewy and luminous look. I decided to try the L'oréal lumi magique primer and see if that would achieve this look. The product comes out as a pearly white liquid and feels really creamy and moisturising to the touch. The formula contains no specs of shimmer or glitter, which I'm very pleased about. Once blended the product adds so much light and luminosity to the skin, making it look awake and glowing. As mentioned before the product leaves the skin feeling really moisturised so provides moisture as well as luminosity, which to me makes the perfect primer.
One pump is all that's needed for full face application before foundation is applied. I've tried this on top of foundation and as a highlighter and found that it made my skin a little too white and was difficult to blend in without disturbing the rest of my make up. One thing that may put people off is the smell, it has a slight hint of sun cream, but it's not over powering and is actually quite a nice sun cream smell, if that exists. I've found that this doesn't make a difference to the longevity of my make up, but this is not what this product claims to do. And it certainly does live up to it's claims of adding light and luminosity to the skin. I'm really pleased with this product, this will remain in my collection for a while.
Have you tried this before, what's your thoughts?
