Battle of the primers - L'Oreal Magic Perfecting Base vs Catrice Prime and Fine Smoothing Refiner

Given that I have an oily complexion, I have been on the look-out for a good primer to stop the excess oil shining through my makeup. I have tried quite a few of them and I finally settled for L'Oreal Magic Perfecting Base. However, I am very happy to share news with you, there is a better alternative!
L'Oreal Magic Perfecting Base is on the pricey side, it can cost anything up to 20 EUR, the prices really vary from Di, Kruidvat (cheapest) to Inno (most expensive), the best deal is by Ryanair when you fly :-). They are both the pretty much the same size, 15 ml or 0,5 oz with L'Oreal and 14 g or 0,49 oz with Catrice. Only Catrice costs 4,99 brainer.
They are both of light pink colour, really blendable and leave your skin super smooth. However, L'Oreal can be a bit trick to work with (I often find that makeup is dragged along with the primer, no such danger with Catrice). The biggest surprise is that Catrice primer keeps my skin shine-free, a thing I completely gave up on, so I am very pleased with how it performs. I absolutely recommend that you try it out, I love it!
