Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect solution for oily skin The fact of having an oily face after just an hour wearing make-up used to annoy me so much in the past. Luckily, I came across a make-up tutor video clip of Michelle Phan in which this product was used to prevent that problem. I immediately ordered it with the hope that my face would be perfectly matte. And guess what???!! Lancome has never let me down. I am now very confident with my make-up despite the hot and humic weather in Vietnam. It helps prevent you from having a greasy, shining face and also helps your make up stay in place. I am so in love with this product, and I am sure you will love it as much as I do if You have the same problem like me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I went to the Lancome counter a few days ago desperate. I have combination skin, my t-zone is extremely oily and the rest of my face extremely dry. My pores have always been big, but in the past year have gotten even bigger and more around my eye brows. Fed up with everything, I went to see if Lancome could help. It was recommended that I purchased Visionnaire, La Base, foundation and pressed powder. I did look good in the store so I thought this will be my last effort so might as well go for it.. Omg...what a huge difference! Pores already reduced and what is left of them is smoothly covered and my face looks practically airbrushed. AMazing! Worth every penny!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have! I have had trouble finding a good face primer. Sometimes my skin is not the most easiest to work with and I've delt with some primers that either felt too much like a lotion or they simply added problems to my skin's condition. But with La Base Pro, not only did it go on so easily, it was effective, my foundation was never put on so smoothly and my skin felt and looked flawless. I do not think the price is too much. Do not think you need to use a lot for a good effect. Use less then what you think is need. One or two pumps is all I need so it lasts me a very long time. Thank you Lancome for yet another great product I have grown to love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Primer! This primer goes on so smooth. I've tried other primers, but some are too oily and you have to wash your hands more than a couple times to get it off. With Lancome La Base Pro, you will not look back. I tried this for the first time when I received a small sample in a gift bag. This little sample made my days alot better. My makeup lasts all day. No smearing at all! There is no blotchy-ness or lines to show on your face from foundation. With this primer, the foundation really sticks. I use Lancome Color Ideal liquid foundation over this primer and its unbelievably flawless!! Trust me, this is IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the Price At first glance, this product might seem to be on the expensive side. However, once you start using it you realize that is not true. I first moisturize, then put La Base on prior to using Lancome mineral foundation. It takes just one pump for me. The texture of La Base is amazing and it goes on your skin so easily and evenly. Not only does it take such a small amount, but I have noticed that I am using less concealer and less foundation; therefore, both of these products will last much longer which in turns saves money. I highly recommend you give it a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING FLAWLESS RESULTS EVERY TIME! I love this stuff!!! It creates flawless results with every application. I love the silky, velvety texture of my skin after I apply Le Base. It makes my foundation glide easily onto my face, creating a perfect, even application. My complexion appears smoother, younger, and more refined - beautiful results every time. It's my magic in a bottle! An additional benefit is that I tend to use less foundation when I use this primer so I don't have to replenish my supply as often. My advice is "try it"! You won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST! I've only been using a primer for about 2 years and while I like the brand, with the product line beginning with an "L" sold in drugstores, I didn't know that all primers are not created equally until I tried the Lancome. I like a natural, sheer foundation and as a 45-year old, that isn't always the best look. This product makes such a difference in the way my skin looks pre-make up and post- make up. It's a gel, but not an oily or dry gel and it's so light, you don't even notice it under your foundation. I love trying new products, but I do believe I'll stick to the Lancome as far as primers are concerned!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makeup stays on even when I sweat. I am a nurse and sweat a lot when I'm at work. I like to wear a lot of makeup too. There is usually very little left of my foundation and blush at the end of my shift. But since using La Base Pro that has all changed. I first use my moisturizer and let it absorb well. Then I apply La Base Pro all over my face, even over my eyes and down my neck. It has a very smooth, matt finish that creates a nice canvas. I use two pumps and that is plenty. Then I put on my makeup as I always do. My face looks almost the same at the end of the day as at the beginning. I was very impressed! My 19 year old daughter is in love with it too. She doesn't even need foundation when she uses it. It is like a clear, liquid powder. Sure wish it was cheaper...

Is the travel size and full size really just 0.3 oz difference?

Is the travel size and full size really just 0.3 oz difference? Buying 2 travel size would be give you more product and be cheaper than getting the full size bottle.
Asked by: Kitty
I was not aware of travel size. I know that my full size bottle last a long time. A little goes a long way. To me it is worth paying for the big bottle. I personally do not like to carry so many containers. Definitely would recommend buying this product in full size.

Does it help refine pores? If not - what Lancome under make-up product does this best?

I love a primer base, I have not tried this yet. I want something that sets my make-up, controls shine, but mostly need something that refines pores and diffuses fine lines. Will this help with the pores?!
Asked by: JesRed
I have the same issues and yes this product does both those things! I tend to get oily skin on nose and chin and this helps big time with shine control too. I have tried a few different brands, but this is the one i keep on hand at all times. Go to a beauty counter and see if they have any samples, once you try you will be hooked.

Would this product be good to use for very oily skin?

I have tried every makeup primer there is from drugstore brands to elite brands. From not so expensive, to very expensive...and nothing works for my skin. I just wanted to know if my very oily skin, would benefit from using this primer. thank you very much, Catrina
Asked by: Oily Cat
YES!!!! I love it however with it having SPF in it you will have a white face when taking selfies

Asked by: TawandaT
Lancome has customers try to answer questions so I can't speak to if they would change the packaging but have you tried to remove the pump and use one of those Extend Your Beauty tools that allows you to get the rest of the product out of the container?

what moisturizer is used prior to applying the perfecting primer

i have combination to oily skin and the perfecting makeup primer is oil free.
Asked by: DEEDEE
Strictly based on combo/oily skin, I would suggest Aquavital for a great, all-around moisturizer. However, to choose a more personalized moisturizer you should see a consultant.

What is the difference between this and the Blur product from Lancome?

Asked by: Anonymous
La base pro has no skincare benefits while Visionnaire blur has built in serum plus it smooths the skin and primes it for makeup application. I highly recommend Blur over La base pro.

Does La Base Primer (orig) contain silicone? I know that tends to clog pores, long term. What is Lancome's return policy, if any, on this product?

Asked by: Nics
Yes it does contain silicone but I have been using it for a couple months now and have had no problems with it clogging my pores. I'm not 100% sure on returns but they included a return label with my purchase. I believe you pay for the return shipping but haven't had to return anything yet!
