L'oreal Studio Secrets Primer
The box contained a a full size lipstick, eyeliner and blusher/bronzer/highlighter trio. As well as samples of youth genetics moisturiser, samples of their new triple resist shampoo and conditioner and their new studio secrets primer. The sales assistant was right this box was much better! I dished out the moistuiser to my mam and popped the makeup in my kit. The one thing I did use on my face was the primer and I am in love!
To me this a complete dupe to Benefits Porefessional. From the feeling to how it's sits on your skin to how it looks and works. The only difference is the color but both go on transparent. Porefessional is an oily girls must have primer. And has had rave reviews in fashion magazines and blogs and continues to be one of Benefits top sellers each week. Studio Secrets primer does everything porefessional does. It leaves your skin with a velvet like texture, minimises the appearance of pores and prolongs the wear of your foundation. It feels light on your skin so does not feel you have extra layers on, my foundation sat perfectly on top of it all day and after my initial powdering in the morning to set my makeup, I never needed to powder again during the day , shiny free and matte all day just the way I liked it! I got 3 applications out of this sample and I was very sad to see it go I knew I had to get some more. Did I remember when I went shopping the other day? Nope totally forgot, after superdrug did not have the palettes I wanted the rest of my makeup went out the window I even forgot to pick up more mascara and have been scraping the last out of my Maybelline Falsies for the last few days now! I have a list though for Thursday and I will not leave until I have everything on the list and this primer is number 1! Price I am not too sure on but I am sure it's under €20 which is a big difference to Benefits €33.50. If you have oily skin I would defiantly recommend this primer, you never know boots mite still have some testers so pop in and ask and try it out for yourself!
