Revered by makeup artists around the world, L’Oréal Paris‘s Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base ($15.99 / US $12.95) is finally making its way to North America. Part of a new collection of products created to bring the tips and tricks of the professional makeup world to women everywhere, it’s worth the wait.
Not a gel, cream or powder, the best way to describe this delicate pink base is spongy to the touch, but it magically disappears into the skin. To apply the primer, start with small, swirling motions and blend outward. It smoothes lines, hides pores and imperfections, and leaves the skin with a flawless matte finish that’s velvety soft to the touch.
We love how we can smooth it on in steamy weather and let its lightweight powders sop up grease to nix shine and prevent a makeup meltdown.
Available at drugstores in Canada and the U.S.
