How to Choose the Right L’Oréal Paris Prime Lab Primer for YouFebruary 27, 2023
Think twice before you skip over applying primer in your makeup routine. This essential first step preps your skin so that your makeup looks as flawless as possible — and lasts a lot longer than it otherwise would. We could sing the praises of primer all day, but instead, we want to cut to the chase and help you find the best one for your specific skincare needs. Enter: L’Oréal Paris’ comprehensive range of Prime Lab primers. The four primers combine makeup and skincare to target different skin concerns, from redness to enlarged pores. Ahead, we break down the benefits of each primer, so you can determine which one might be the best fit for you.
If You Want to Minimize the Appearance of Your Pores
L’Oréal Paris Prime Lab Up to 24H Pore Minimizer
Want to address enlarged pores? Check out the Pore Minimizer option. Formulated with a BHA, LHA and AHA complex, this primer resurfaces and exfoliates in addition to priming your skin for makeup. That means it not only makes your skin look flawlessly airbrushed thanks to its instant blurring effect, it also works to smooth your skin over time. It’s also an ideal choice if you have oily or shiny skin.
If You Want to Brighten Your Complexion
L’Oréal Paris Prime Lab Up to 24H Dullness Reducer
Address a dull complexion with the Dullness Reducer, a color-correcting brightening primer that boosts the luminosity of your skin. Especially suited to tan to deep skin tones, this orange-tinted primer adds a hint of radiance to your naturally stunning skin. The formula features niacinamide to reduce signs of aging and even out your skin tone.
If You Want to Control Redness
L’Oréal Paris Prime Lab Up to 24H Redness Eraser
If you have fair to medium skin and are prone to redness, you’ll love the Redness Eraser primer. This color corrector is green pigmented to neutralize redness and also contains niacinamide to help even out your skin tone over time. Like the other Prime Lab primers, it has long-wear polymers in the formula to extend your makeup’s wear, so you’ll stay looking gorgeous all day.
If You Want to Reduce Shine
L’Oréal Paris Prime Lab Up to 24H Matte Setter
You’ll be hashtagging all of your selfies #NoFilter after picking up the Prime Lab Matte Setter. Matte makeup is coming back in a big way this year, and this primer is the key to getting the look. It instantly reduces shine and mattifies your makeup for up to 24 hours. Plus, ingredients like LHA and salicylic acid help keep shine under control in the long term.
