Review: L'Oreal Paris Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base

Hey beauties,
So L'Oreal Paris released their new product line, Studio Secrets Professional. I was so excited to see that they were releasing a matte face primer along with color correcting facial primers.

I broke down and bought the Magic Perfecting Base. I bought this product at my local Ulta for $12.99, but you can purchase this product at any drugstore.

So lets get into the review...

This is what L'Oreal states the product is supposed to do:
-minimizes the look of pores and fine lines
-provides a finish that's flawless
-provides a matte finish
-skin is supposed to look and feel smoothed and resurfaced
-suitable for all skin types
When I first applied the product to my face it felt heavy, and greasy. Once I smoothed the primer over my face it did not feel greasy anymore, my skin did feel silky smooth and did give my skin a matte finish, which is great considering I have combination oily skin.
The primer did minimize the look of my pores to a certain extent. It did not minimize all my visible pores. I do have fine lines around my eye area and those were NOT minimized.
After letting the primer set on my face I still noticed some flaws, so the primer did not give me a flawless look. Even with foundation application I still noticed flaws.
Since I have combination oily skin I noticed after a few hours that my skin was oily and I had to apply blot powder to get rid of the shine.
Who I would recommend this product to:
-individuals who DO NOT have oily skin
-individuals who DO NOT have problematic skin (acne scars, big pores, deep lines ect.) b/c you will not get a flawless look
-individuals who are wanting a matte finish to their skin.
