What the brand says: Liquid primer instantly smoothens complexion and creates a flawless base for your makeup. Pores are minimized and skin tone is made more even. Apply after moisturizer and before foundation or BB cream.
Packaging: The primer comes in a pretty pastel pink bottle with a pump dispenser.
Texture: The primer isn’t very thick and feels just like a lightweight face cream/lotion. Blends easily on the skin and leaves behind a moisturizing layer.
Shade: The primer is tinted and does give a white cast initially (maybe due to SPF or the tint, not sure) which settles in few minutes.
Fragrance: The primer smells exactly like a talcum powder! Love the fragrance.
How I use and staying power: I use it after I am done applying my La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo Plus Cream and before the foundation. You can also use it under BB cream.
The primer blends quickly into the skin but gives a white cast initially which settles after few minutes. I have oily skin and I always prefer matte products; this primer isn’t matte and feels like a creamy moisturizer. However, I use all matte products on top of it, so that is fine with me. The product will go really well on normal to dry skin. Any skin type that loves dewy finish too won’t have a problem with this one. Does not make skin greasy or oily which is great! It does brighten up your complexion, makes skin soft and smooth and does blur out tiny pores- exactly as per the claims.
PS. I would also like to mention that my skin was acting very weird for a couple of days and I had severe acne breakouts; I was testing out a lot of products along with this so cannot really blame this particular product. If you ever used this and suffered from clogged pores and acne, do mention it in the comments below!
