For gorgeous, picture-perfect makeup like a pro, this primer promises a smooth, radiant, canvas for a flawless makeup look. Lancôme’s exclusive Elasto-Smooth™ technology refines skin’s texture and diffuses light to visibly reduce imperfections with a satiny-soft finish. Makeup glides on effortlessly and color stays truer and more vibrant for that right-off-the-runway, air-brushed look that lasts until you take it off. Oil-free.
My favourite face primer so far is Giorgio Armani's Fluid Master Primer. I discovered it way back in 2009 and have been using it since. I love it because it gives me an immediate matt canvas to work on. My foundation glides on easily and stays on the whole day. I need only a little. Since 2009, I'm only on my second tube.
I received an 8ml sample from a Nordstrom haul eons ago. I finally am getting around to reviewing it I love receiving samples don't you? I get to try out new products and if I don't like them, it is no big loss on my part.
La Base Pro contains silicones just like GA's Fluid Master. I'm lucky that my skin can tolerate silicones and I just love the slippery feel of it. I need just a little to cover my face and my face is instantly matt. Although I do not have enlarged pores it still matters to me that my nose area has a poreless look. La Base Pro does that, it makes my skin feel smooth and my foundation adheres well to my skin throughout the day. It is also oil-free. I'm alternating this with my GA Fluid Master everyday. I'm trying to make this last as long as I can. Love it!
La Base Pro costs USD $42 or SGD $72 for 0.8 oz or 25g of product. Giorgio Armani Fluid Master costs USD $56 for 1 oz or 30 ml of product. It seems slightly cheaper than my GA.
