Porefessional is a pretty decent primer and it’s always the first I grab for and it’s also very popular. When I came across the L’Oreal Primer I wasn’t expecting much but it was the end of the month, my Porefessinal had just ran out on me and I needed something within budget until payday! I picked this product up without reading reviews or looking it up which is rare for me because I normally look on various blogs for their verdicts before purchasing.
L’Oreal claim that:
1. Pores will appear less visible.
2. It will even out the skin surface.
3. It’s silky smooth touch.
4. Has a translucent coverage.
5. The Magic – The micro-blur technology concentrated with light reflectors delivers an optical blurring effect for a flawless nude complextion.
I was extremely surprised with this product, the nozzle on the product isn’t all that great as I feel like I really have to put in the effort to get the product out of the tube. The nozzle is almost like a precise applicator which is weird as it’s to prime the whole face but hey-ho. The product itself on the other hand is like a dream, it’s silky to touch and not at all watery or greasy like some products can be. When applying to the face it feels as though your literally erasing all blemishes! I can see a slight difference in the visibility of my pores which is great for me since I have enlarged pores thanks to my oily skin around my nose! It’s definitely a translucent coverage the same as porefessional this is a bonus for me and they are both silky smooth to touch.
I would hand down say it’s a very good contender for the Benefit Porefessional Pro Balm and would recommend this as it does what it says on the tin. I love the way it made my makeup look. This is a definite winner if you are on a budget and the price difference is on different ends of the scale.
Porefessional Pro Balm | 22ml | £24.50
L’Oreal Nude Magique Blur Cream | 25ml | £9.99
I am so pleased I came across this product and while I will always always always re-purchase my benefit porefessional I will happily use this and repurchase this whenever I’m on a budget.
