L'oreal Lumi Magique Base Pure Light Primer ♥

Another post about my love of L'oreals Lumi Magique range.  The Pure Light Primer from their new range is really impressive, and I've already had a few compliments saying how dewy my skin looks. L'oreal say the product can be "used alone or under foundation to enhance radiance, or dab onto cheeks and brow bones as a highlighter". It definitely does enhance radiance too...my skin looks healthy and glowing, without looking like I've used a lot of make up.
 The bottle looks sleek and expensive, but it's really light, which although is good for popping in the handbag, it does make it feel a little inexpensive and not very special. The primer is dispensed through a pump, which I found really easy to use. The right amount if product would be dispensed, and I didn't have a problem with too much product coming out of the pump, which I find is quite common with similar products. What I love amount the product is the light shimmer it has, which looks just as lovely if the primer is used on its own or under your foundation. I find that my foundation lasts all day, but I do use powder to keep my make up intact.
 The consistency is quite thick, but nice and creamy which makes it easy to blend with your foundation. I personally like to use mine with foundation, which makes my skin look really healthy and glowing. I am a fan of using the product on my brow bone and cheekbones, which make them look really defined. The product retails at £9.99 for 20ml, which although is pricey for drugstore make up, it definitely rivals high end beauty brands, and therefore is worth every penny!
