What we say:
When applying my make-up, a primer is definitely the most important product in my routine. As I have combination/oily skin, without a primer my foundation doesn’t stick around as long as it should.
There are few primers that work really well for me and those are the ones that I will always repurchase. That being said, when a cosmetics brand I like launches a new primer, I’m always keen to try it. 80% of the time I am disappointed with the product and I return to my much-loved primers.
When given the chance to try the Lancôme La Base Pro Fluid primer I was eager to see if it would work. In my experience, high-end pricey products don’t always live up to their promise (or their price tag). I can happily report that this primer has surpassed my expectations and is now a firm favourite.
The packaging is classy in a simple glass pump action bottle, and the pump allows one to dispense the perfect amount of primer for a single application. The primer smoothes onto the skin effortlessly and blends instantly providing me with the perfect base for foundation application. I use a rather liquid foundation and I find that it blends perfectly with the primer for a finish that not only looks flawless but also lasts for most of the day.
If you are a fan of Lancôme products than this primer definitely won’t disappoint. I would highly recommend this primer and will most certainly repurchase it once I finish my current bottle.
