I thought I’d introduce a new series for 2017 on my blog,it’s going to be all about products claiming to do the same thing but the only difference is,one is high-end the other drugstore.So I’m going to compare the two for you all and tell you from my experience which one is better and why:) So let’s kick off this series with a Vs post on the face primers.
Benefit claims:Quickly minimize the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin! Apply this silky, lightweight balm alone, under or over makeup. … Contains a vitamin E derivative, known to protect skin from free radicals. The POREfessional is the #1 best-selling Prestige Face Primer in the US*
L’Oréal claims:BASE MAGIQUE transforming smoothing primer instantly smooths pores and creates an even surface, so that you get a more flawless make-up result that lasts. The silky, lightweight formula glides onto skin and minimises the look of pores and fine lines to transform your skin surface
My Review:Do you really need a face primer?For all you of out there who think you don’t really need a primer,well you are wrong!Sorry to break the bubble but primers not only give a good base for your makeup but it just makes everything glide on better and covers your pores!I’ve been using both these products for quite sometime and here is my review.
1•The L’Oréal basemagique is quite a thick product,like a thick cream.So you really have to blend it into your skin but sometimes it tends to leave a white cast on your nose or wherever you apply it which obviously would get covered by foundation
•But with the Benefit POREfessional the product literally melts into your skin and doesn’t leave a cast on your face and goes on like butter without you having to really push the product in which you have to do with the L’Oréal basemagiue.
2• The L’Oréal basemaqiue enhances your dry areas so if you have dry skin don’t apply this on your face without moisturising.
•The Benefit POREFessional doesn’t do that,infact it hides the dry areas better.
3•L’Oréal basemagique stays on for quite long,the longevity of the product is great
•Benefit POREfessional it’s equally good in terms of longevity.It lasts for a long time and you don’t really need to touch up.
4•L’Oréal basemagique packaging is quite average,it comes in a tub and I prefer if I can squeeze the product out than dip my fingers into the product each time.But you do get a lot of product in the container.
Benefit POREfessional comes in a squeezy tube,quite convienient and easy!I love it.
