      I recently purchased the Lancome LA BASE PRO Perfecting Makeup Primer. I hate the price but I love the product! It is one of those sort of once in a lifetime products that I saved up for but would not necessarily purchase on a regular basis because it costs so much. Price aside, this product is fantastic. As expected, the quality is amazing. This is a Lancome product after all.

      Most people have tried the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer and rave about it as their holy grail makeup products. I think this Lancome primer is better, and here’s why: First off, it has the silkiest feel to it. I rub into my skin and it absorbs quickly and completely and it leaves my skin feeling so smooth. So many people make the comparison of a good primer to making


      your skin feel like a canvas so that it is easier to put on products like foundation and concealer afterwards. That is the perfect comparison to use for this product. It fills in my pores so that I have a smooth, even surface to work with (and a good buffer between my liquid foundation and my pores). Applying my liquid foundation on top of this primer is so easy. Personally for me, the best aspect of this product is how well it controls oil. If you are someone with oily skin like me, I highly urge you to try this. While it does not mattify the skin completely, it does truly keep the oil at bay. This primer is also incredibly moisturizing. My makeup routine used to involve using a moisturizer AND a primer before foundation, concealer, etc. Now,

      • I skip the moisturizer and just use this primer almost as a two-in-one moisturizing & priming product.

        Finally, I have to mention that this increases the staying power of my foundation by a lot. I recently reviewed a foundation that I hated because it faded within an hour of application. I was curious to see if this primer would keep it from fading for a little bit longer so I did a bit of a science experiment. Comparing that foundation with and without this primer, I definitely saw a major difference. Even though I still hate that foundation, this primer improved the way it looked.

        One thing to be careful of is using too much of this primer. Because it feels so silky, it can be easy to pump a little too much product onto the face. A little does

        go a long way (and a lot makes the face almost feel too silky to the point where the makeup might actually slide off rather than adhere). Another thing I noticed about this primer is that I really should wait for it to dry rather than quickly applying the liquid foundation on top of it right away. Those are just a few of the little quirks of this primer that I have learned using it these few weeks. Once I figured out how best to use this, I loved it.

        Overall, I have to give the Lancome LA BASE PRO Perfecting Makeup Primer a rating of a 10 out of 10. I wish it were more affordable, but I love it. I will definitely try to conserve this product so that I can have it for as long as possible. I highly recommend it!
