The texture and effect

It has a whipped, silicone consistency that is something similar to a mousse, and as much as we love the product, we hate that it comes in a glass tub that we have to stick our fingers into. Tubes and pumps are much preferred when it comes to any makeup and beauty products.

When applying the product, it’s best to warm the formula in between your fingers first to avoid the primer from balling up, you can then pat the product on the skin where you need it. It’s a great product to be used around the lips to stop lipstick from bleeding too, perfect if you don’t have a lip liner to hand.

Foundations of all types smooth on nicely over top, and those with oilier skin will appreciate that the absorbents in this primer help to control oil throughout the day


Smoothes skin, provides a soft base for foundation


Doesn’t necessarily make foundation last longer, but certainly, creates a flawless base for you to work with

Bottom line

Worn alone or under your foundation, the L’Oreal Studio Secrets Primer gives the skin a smoother, more even appearance. The mousse-like texture feels velvety soft on the skin, the biggest downfall for this product is the jar it's housed in, not only is it less hygienic, but the small jar means it’s difficult to get the right amount of product out, a squeezy tube packaging would have been much more preferred.

The product has actually be discontinued by L’Oreal, but you can still get your hands on it from Amazon and Very.
