Lise Watier's Base Miracle Pore minimizing Primer review

Hello ladies! There's only a few weeks left before school starts! Summer is going by too fast >_<" So as all of you guys know, I've been away for a while and promised to post something soon. Here I am! :) But first of all, I want to let you guys know that I updated my blogsale again! Please check it out because I really need to clear all of these products as fast as possible or my drawer will explode >.<"

So it's been a while now that I was searching for a primer that would control my oily t-zone and keep the shine at bay. I'm happy to say that I've finally found it! I've tried Smashbox, MUFE HD, Clinique... Nothing worked until I found Lise Watier's Base Miracle pore minimizing primer!

Lise Watier is a Canadian brand that is also sold in the US (according to their website). They don't offer online shopping yet, but they can be easily found in all Shopper Drug Mart across Canada and certain department stores like The Bay.What it claims: "Innovative makeup base that gives skin a matte and silky finish and reduces the appearance of enlarged pores. For a flawless finish, apply a small amount to area to where skin tends to shine and where enlarged pores are most apparent. Paraben Free."

Ingredients: "Cyclopentasiloxane, Polymethyl silsesquioxane, Dimethicone/Vinyl, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, C3045 Alkyl Dimethicone.

I know, there's A LOT of silicone in this product, but when you apply it on, it doesn't feel "silicone like"... I don't know if you guys know what I mean.. haha. For example, the Smashbox primer. When you apply it, you get that weird noise that sound like you're rubbing on plastic or something and you can feel it sitting on your skin. Not with Lise Watier's primer. I found that it left my skin very smooth and silky like, as it claims. However, I don't apply it to all of my face. Only the area where I tend to get oily and where my pores are visible, like it's indicated (see bold character is description). A little goes a long way! As for the pore minimizing side, I would say that it doesn't really minimize my pores, but diffuses them. You get a kind of blur effect LOL but I'm pretty satisfied (we all know nothing can erase enlarged pores!). It does really mattify my skin and kept shine at bay for at least 8 hours (because I never wore it for more than 8 hours lol. Ok maybe 10.. but still, my face was shine free!) The downside of it would be that it's pretty expensive for 0,85oz (25ml). It retails for 29$, but since I got a friend who works in a drugstore and has discounts, I paid a bit less.
This is more than enough for my t-zone, cheekbones and around my nose

What I like <3
  • No weird feeling/noise
  • Feels very light
  • Does what it claims
  • control oil 
  • doesn't dry out my skin
  • no scent
What I don't like
  • Very small size
  • Expensive. lol
   Overall:
Packaging: 5/5 Very hygienic & portable
Quality: 5/5 Can't ask for more
Price: 29$ CAD
Scent: 5/5 No scent
Would I repurchase? Yup! Using my friend's discount :P
