I have never used a primer before maybe because I never needed one...but now my skin is in trouble,I wanted something that makes my skin soft and even toned...so I thought to buy Loreal's smoothing resurfacing primer since loreal never disappoints me so it was my first choice.

LOREAL CLAIMS: this primer masks wrinkles and uneven textures in the skin making the complexion smooth and velvet,it gives a matte and silky finish.
MY EXPERIENCE: this primer comes in a glass jar with a black plastic lid the packaging is pretty decent and basic,the texture of this primer is mousy and  the color is pale pink .it can be used alone or under a foundation for a perfect base.on the website Loreal suggests that you can use it only on the uneven parts of skin like around the nose or under the eyes or you can use it all over the face like I do.

all the claims about this primer are pretty much true...it provides a super smooth surface for makeup and my skin feels velvety soft it also gives a matte and radiant finish,this primer does not feel heavy or greasy and it doesn't effect my makeup in any way...I mean  it doesn't make my makeup stay longer and it doesn't even make my makeup melt off my face.I was  quite surprised to see the jar because it is too small and pricey for a drug store brand...the rest is great...I will definitely repurchase this primer because my oily,uneven skin is pretty satisfied with it...I am not sure if this is going to work the same for dry skin.if you have used this  please share your thoughts.


  1. Hi :D
    You have a beautiful blog. I joined the blog, I hope you return.


  2. @Lara...thanks for the lovely comment...it made my day:)

  3. Pretty Blog! :) I love this primer too. I sometimes use it on top of my foundation if I get oily troughout the day. Because it totally mattifies.

  4. @Shinaaya.. i bought it for £14.25...i am not sure if this is available in Pakistan...i've not seen this in Karachi.

  5. I have large pores on my nose and my liquid foundation makes them look horrid and more visible. Do you think I can use this product to create a smooth surface? I don't have anyother problem areas and on the whole my skin tends to be oily, at least the t-zone is.
