Colorbar Perfect Match Primer Review
I had purchased this primer quite some time ago, at least a year back. When it comes to makeup, I tend to keep the base simple. Most of the times it’s a BB cream and sometimes a foundation with a light coverage. Using a primer too is a rarity, which I keep only for occasional use. Hence this primer has lasted me a long long time. This is my first primer and the only one I ever used.
For the uninitiated…
What is a makeup primer
It is a product that is used before a foundation to allow smoother, even application and make your foundation last much longer
What does it do
It blurs wrinkles, fine lines and pores to give a smoother appearance.
How do you use it
It is to be used right before your foundation and after moisturizer, sunscreen etc.
Rs 850 for 30 ml
My Take on Colorbar Perfect Match Primer
Packaging- Simple, no fuss tube with a very tiny nozzle which prevents any wastage of product.
Fragrance & Appearance – It has absolutely no fragrance and has a transparent gel like appearance
Finish – You need to use a very little quantity at a time. It spreads easily and settles to a completely matte finish.
Lasting power/Effectiveness – It completely blurs out appearance of pores and fine lines to give a very smooth surface for application of your foundation. I have used it over Mac Studio Fix Powder Foundation, Maybelline Fit Me Foundation, Lakme Absolute Illuminating Foundation and it has worked every single time. It makes the foundation application look even and makes it last much longer – doesn’t budge for hours.
I have even used with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Powder which is just a finishing powder. This primer makes it look fabulous and also increases staying power.
Those with oily/combination skin will especially love this primer. Those with dry skin shouldn’t skip moisturizer before using this.
Though I love this product and it hasn’t broken me out even once, I personally wouldn’t recommend using these kind of products on a daily basis since it doesn’t really let your skin breathe. Use it sparingly, occasionally unless your profession demands it or you really have the need to use it daily.
Do I recommend it?
Absolutely! It is an amazing primer which blurs pores and fine lines, making your base makeup application smoother and last much longer.
