Favorite Things Friday

We've decided to start something called "Favorite Things Friday". Every Friday we will post about something that we can't live without. It might be something from the kitchen or something from outside, a beauty product, a favorite shirt, etc. it might be a few things at a time but either way, I think you get the point😉

So let's start this Friday off with this little bottle of goodness right here 👇


I have tried so many skin perfectors and primers from some of the big name cosmetic companys as well as some from the local grocery store or Walgreens, and this has been, by far,  the best product I've used! Now I'm not saying that I won't find anything better than this, but as far as I'm concerned right now, This is my FAVORITE!! 

Now... some of you may not even know what a skin perfector or primer is, so I'm going to enlighten you. I have watched numerous Makeup tutorials where the makeup artist puts a primer on before their makeup to smooth skin, reduce pore size, etc. The majority of these makeup artist are in their twenties, so things that may work for their youthful skin just doesn't do the same for mine. Now that I'm in my forties I have noticed my pores look larger and my skin isn't as smooth so I need all the help I can get. 

The L'Oréal Magic Lumi Primer  says it will do the following:

  • A unique liquid light formula that blends seamlessly into the skin to boost its liveliness and luminosity
  • Texture is smoothed and toned for a natural-looking complexion
  • Universal shade suitable for all skin types and tones

I have found it to do all these things and I notice a difference in the size of my pores, as well as how smooth my makeup looks throughout the day. It has a shimmery look to it and I typically apply one to two pumps of it on my fingertips and apply it all over my face after I have applied my moisturizer, then I apply my foundation and powder as usual. I have combination/oily skin and this doesn't make my skin feel greasy at all. You could even use it by itself without putting makeup on. Hope it works just as great for you as it has for me! 

BTW.. I have been singing that song by Julie Andrews.. these are a few of my favorite things ... ever since writing this post and I'm pretty sure my family will never want to hear it again😉 I just can't help it! 

You can purchase L'Oréal Magic Lumi Primer here or at your local Walgreens who has it buy one get one half off.
