To Prime or Not to Prime: Part 2



A while back I posted about my quest to find a primer - you can read that post here - and I wont lie to you I've been finding it hard...until I was recommended this. Its the L'Oreal Paris Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer and I am absolutely in LOVE with it. It is everything I have ever wanted in a primer and more....can you tell I like it yet? 

I've had this a few weeks now and I am just amazed with the things that this little tube can do - first a foremost it is a base/primer - to be used under make-up with its ultimate aim to make your make-up last longer. It does. Not only does it do this, but it also smooths over pores, evens out redness and gives the skin a healthy-not-sweaty-glow. I've been primarily using it mixed up with my moisturizer in the morning to really give me that dewy, healthy looking skin and as result of this, and with the previously mentioned sins that this little beauty covers, I've been literally wearing my moisturizer/primer combo and concealer as my everyday base. 

Another way I've been using this is instead of mixing a small amount into my moisturizer is as a highlighter, applied to the tops of my cheeks and along the inner arch of my brows. It gives such a lovely dewy finish that I've now started applying it to my shoulders and collarbones too! 

A little goes a long way with this product too so there it is definitely worth spending £10 on, for a pretty small tube it certainly does a lot!

That being said, I'm always on the look out for a good primer, any suggestions? Be sure to leave me a comment!
