L'Oreal Studio Secrets Primers Review

Hello everyone,

Today I am sharing a review on 2 of the L'Oreal studio Secrets primers.

I am not very experienced when it comes to primers, I have only tried No.7 primers in the past however I do know when something works and when something doesn't and for me, these primers are a definite let down!

I have been using the L'Oreal Studio Secrets anti-redness and L'Oreal Studio Secrets anti shine, mattifying primers and so far I am not loving them at all!



What they say:-
L'Oréal Paris Studio Secrets Anti-Redness Primer gives a uniform skin tone. 
All women can harness the power of these primers to create the illusion of a flawless complexion. It’s just a matter of obeying the laws of complementary colours! To neutralise a shade simply apply its complementary shade.

For example: the green tinted primer reduces the appearance of red, giving the skin a more even tone.

L'Oréal Paris Studio Secrets Anti-Shine Mattifying Primer acts like a ‘second skin’, weightless on your complexion. Easy to apply and comfortable on the skin, it mattifies oily areas and doesn’t leave a greasy residue.


Directions:-

1- Apply the L'Oréal Paris Studio Secrets Anti-Shine Mattifying Primer in little dabs onto shiny areas (forehead, nose and chin) and around the nose.
2- Smooth towards the outside of the face.


1- Apply L'Oréal Paris Studio Secrets Anti-Redness Primer in little dabs on red patches, and then tap with your fingertips to work it into the skin. 

 What I think:





In my opinion I don't particularly think the mattifying primer works very well, I always find it makes my skin more oily throughout the day (which I do NOT need!) and it makes my makeup slide off my face too. I don't like the consistancy of the primer either, despite what they say, to me the product feels slightly greasy. If you have oily skin like myself, then I recommend staying away from this.

I think the anti- redness primer works well to even out redness but the consistancy is very runny.

I wouldn't choose either of these primers over the Urban Decay setting sprays!

The L'Oreal primers retail at around £10.00 each and are cheaper than Urban Decay setting sprays which cost around £20 but I believe you get what you pay for and the quality of Urban Decay setting sprays justify the price!

  5. I totally agree about these Primers! Make me feel like my make up is sliding off not staying on! I know it's pretty expensive but the Cover FX primers are amazing & SO worth the money. I've reviewed it on my blog if you fancy a read http://saidshewhat.blogspot.com/2011/08/prime-time-with-cover-fx.html xCx
