L’Oreal Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer | Review

When I first tried this in the shop, I was slightly shocked at just how truly white it was.

This primer comes out in a liquid formula and looks fluorescent white. But do not let that deter you. For me, the fact that it was so bright was what drew me in to get it as I just had to see what that was like.

It’s very easy to blend out and it does turn out to be pretty much invisible so you’re not left with white streaks everywhere. The primer does an amazing job at brightening up the skin, especially on those days where my face is a little dull. I think if you like a dewy look, this is awesome under foundation or on it’s own. It does feel slightly sticky when you initially apply it, however this feeling goes away pretty quickly and it definitely helps to get concealer/foundation to slide on better.

I would say the only downside of it, is that it doesn’t do anything for pores. So if you’re after a pore filling primer, you have to look elsewhere (like this Garnier one, read the full review here). But I love applying it in the areas I want a little more brightness and I think this would be perfect for those of you going into spring/summer now!

Have you tried this pure light primer before? What were your thoughts?

Love,

Sofia

    Finally someone who shares my love for this stuff, it’s one of the best primers I have ever tried (and much cheaper than my other two faves) yay! It definitely gives a youthful glow that some others just can’t. Love the post xoxo

    So many love this primer but I find it to be a touch too glittery on me. Not sure if I’m using the wrong foundation with it though, may I know what foundation do you use with it?

      I don’t actually use foundation too much, but all the ones I have used worked well with it! I’ve used Rimmel match perfection, It cosmetics CC Cream, Nars ones as well! What do you use? πŸ™‚ xx

      • March 29, 2017 / 2:15 pm

        Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua which is my only ‘matte’ foundation, the others are dewy.

    This one sounds nice, but I would probably look for one that actually fills pores as I have quite a lot of them πŸ™‚

    I love brightening primers, but as I get older I’m starting to look for ones that minimize pores. πŸ™ Having two in one would be amazing!

    wow it is indeed really really white haha! I haven’t tried this one yet, I think I might check out the Garnier one you mentioned as I prefer using a poor filling primer. But I do like how you solved that little issue by using if for brigter areas! XX

    I’ve tried this L’Oreal Lumi primer in the past and I must say it’s a decent drugstore primer. It does add a nice subtle glow to the face.

      Haha fair fair, different things work for different people! I think this is definitely not good for pores though so if that’s what you’re mainly after in a primer then don’t get this πŸ˜› xx

    I am using the Garnier one and it’s really nice, I have large pores and it does a great job plus my skin feels so smooth after I use it. But I don’t use primer every day, I always forget it since I always in a hurry every morning.

    It sounds like a lovely illuminating primer, I wonder how it works in conjunction with a pore-filling primer. I haven’t tried it personally but this looks like a great alternative to the higher end options out there, thanks for sharing! Xx
