Great for hiding pores

I bought this primer on sale at Target after reading reviews online.

It claims to help fill in pores, deep lines and expression marks, and it does do that reasonably well. It creates a smooth surface for makeup application which enables your liquid or powder to glide on effortlessly, which I love!

However, I found that it went a little flakey once I applied- even after I "melted" it together in my fingers as per instructions. It meant that my concealor didnt really grip onto the primer due to the dryness.

All in all, a great value primer for those wanting to hide pores. I wouldn't it recommend for oily skinned ladies like myself, its definitely more one for normal-combination skin :)

Ideal for

Normal skin, redness, large pores

No joke! I look flawless!
I just had a spray tan last night, it's trapped in my pores and I looked dirty until I used this , also smoothed out eye wrinkles , my whole face looks so smooth and feels like velvet :-) I'm in love! Hope I don't break out.


Rub quickly and continuously in the one area.

Ideal for

Dirty looking pores after a spray tan , blackhead coverage , wrinkles

Does what it claims!

I've been using this for over a year and it does what it claims. Minimises the large pores on my skin and is one of the only primers I've found that seems to have a decent effect on the staying-power of my makeup. The texture feels wonderful on fingertips and feels like magic as you glide it around your face. I only use this when I'm making myself up for special occasions as it's expensive for such a small amount (my only complaint and hence only 4 stars from me)

Perfect base for a big night out!

Being in my 40s I don't like a solid foundation base so I did find this primer to be a little thick and difficult to spread. However once you take the time to warm and smooth it, the result is almost flawless. I prefer a runnier consistency for my daily morning rush but when you want to spend a bit more time on your makeup this is a lovely product. Perfect for a night out - my makeup looked as fresh when I got home as it did when I left to go out. An impressive performer!


Warm it in your hand before applying.

very nice! so smooth and velvety.

I used a small sample of this to the very last bit. I would use this as an evening or event primer, but it would work for everyday as well. I really like the texture, although its a bit tricky to work with at first. Makes the pores just disappear!


Make sure you are using enough product that you can spread it without dragging it on your skin.

Priming Perfection

Primers are now an essential part of makeup application, they help create a perfect canvas, correct a number of skin flaws and help your makeup stay put so much longer.
L'oreal's Base Magique is a light pink, super soft cream that when applied blurs pores and lines, gives a super smooth finish and works to absorb oil all day long.
Packaged in a little glass jar this baby pink cream has a heady floral fragrance, only a little bit is required as it's quite thick and goes a long way. As you smooth the cream over your skin it basically fills in open pores and fine lines making them less noticeable. The formula contains soft powders that absorb sebum giving a matte finish that really lasts. The cream gives skin a smooth finish and makeup glides on perfectly. The matte effect lasts for hours and makeup is held in place all day long.
The only downside to this product is the glass jar, it's a bit tricky with slippery hands and can easily be dropped and broken.


I like to apply this with a foundation brush to get a lighter application than with fingers.

Ideal for

Anyone. This creates an even, smooth base that makes makeup last and last so you can't go wrong!

Smoothens and mattifies

This is quite a thick primer that becomes very pliable when warmed with the fingertips, and is easy to apply. This is easy to smooth over the skin and creates a great base to apply makeup over.

This is also fragrance free (to my nose, at least!) and leaves me with a matt complexion.

Downside? It comes out of a tub, so this can be a bit gross from the bacterial growth side of things!


A little goes a long way!

I received this as a trial and was instantly amazed when i used it. It is a very thick consistency but goes on so smooth and you can see the change straight away. My pores looked like they were gone, my skin felt so soft like a babys bum and it also looked flawless. My skin is usually oily around my nostrils and this got rid of that and mattified my skin. This is a wonderful product and i am really wanting to go and buy it!

Miracle Cream

I received this product as my first trial.
I was so excited.
I used it the next morning, after washing my face.
It was a smooth and nice scent and very light in texture.
I am in my late 40's and found my face looked smoother and very freshen. It also made my foundation sit well all day long.
I am extremely happy with this this extraordinarily product.
You only need a very small amount to apply to the face.


Only need to use a small amount, as it goes a long way...

Ideal for

For any skin type.
Once you try it you will wonder how have you done with out this lovely velvet cream
