The Review | L'Oreal Lumi Magique Primer

you know the 'blogger made me buy it' tag? this is one of those products that i bought from blogger hype and all the reviews i'd seen around on it, and this little beauty is the L'Oreal Lumi Magique Primer. 

i've never actually tried a primer before that wasn't a clear silicone-based gel, but how pretty is this pearly-white colour of this formula? this is great for creating a really luminous base for your foundation, and i find it works best with a sheer, lighter coverage foundation so that it still shows through a little. not only does this work fab as a primer (my foundation sticks around those extra couple of hours which makes all the difference), but it's super versatile and makes for a super subtle and brightening highlight aswell once blended in over the top of foundation. i also can't wait for spring and summer to roll around as this would make a great base for a light makeup look when it's too warm to slap on the foundation, so i'm hoping my skin will clear up over the next few months so i can brave having just this on my face for a really bright, dewy look.

for a drugstore primer in a bottle that is fairly smaller than the others on the market, £9.99 might be a little bit pricey for this, but it is well worth it for such a versatile product. the pump disperses just the right amount for even coverage for your whole face, but unfortunately the top doesn't screw off so i'm hoping that doesn't mean i waste too much product because i can't get it out. 

which other drugstore primers are you guys loving? i'd love to know!


  1. £9.99! For me that's pretty damn expensive!

    1. oh, really? i think this is pretty reasonable for a drugstore primer that is this versatile. i think you'd struggle to find anything else in Boots or Superdrug for more than a couple of pounds cheaper! xx
