Review // L'oreal Paris Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer

My sister coming home from university means two things; someone else to make me tea and her make-up bag. Whenever she comes home I always want to have a little look in to see what I can steal borrow whilst she's here and luckily, not only did she speak very highly of a certain L'oreal Paris Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer but she also let me borrow it too. Hurrah.

Firstly, I'm not one to mention the packaging of products purely because I believe they're pretty much self explanatory but I really adore the bottle this primer comes in. It looks much more luxurious and more expensive than it actually is and it doesn't feel cheap either.

What L'oreal say about their Magique Primer:
"L'oreal Paris Lumi Magique Primer provides a light enriching base which illuminates the skin. Provides up to 8 hours of hydration."

I wasn't sure how much product I would need so I pumped out a whole pumps worth onto the back of my hand. I also wasn't sure what I was expecting when it came out but I certainly wasn't expecting that. The L'oreal Paris Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer is a white, pearlescent liquid which is pretty runny in consistency. It feels lovely and silky to touch and when rubbed in to the skin, it leaves it with a beautiful subtle glow.

How to use:
"Apply in a figure of '3', from forehead, to the nose, to the chin to highlight bone structure."

So, you can apply it how L'oreal suggests like above on top of your foundation as a highlight or underneath your foundation like a primer, which is how I used it. One pump was more than enough for my entire face so if using just to highlight, a little goes a long way.  I applied it to the face using a Real Techniques Buffing Brush before applying my foundation like usual and I adored the results. My skin was looking so much more glowy than usual and much more dewy which was just the look I was hoping for. I have to admit and say I was a little worried I would end up looking a tiny bit like Edward Cullen but alas, no.

Since trying out this product, I definitely plan on buying my own bottle. Whilst I didn't find it hydrated my skin, it is an excellent multi-use product. It looks fantastic underneath foundation to leave you with a dewy, subtle glow which perks up tired looking skin or applied a a highlighter on the face which leaves you with a beautiful highlight. A little goes a long way so this product will definitely last you a very long time. A summer must have!
