I was never satisfied with my foundation because it would either settle in the fine lines on my face or would be patchy in certain areas. It was only after I watched a makeup tutorial online; I realized that there exists a thing called face primer that acts as a base for the foundation and allows it to be applied evenly on the skin. So I looked for a primer online and bought Colorbar Perfect Match Primer. Here is it’s review.
Basic Info About Colorbar Primer
Price and Quantity:
MRP INR 825/- for 30ml
The primer comes in a broad hard plastic tube with a twist to open the cover. The tube has a nozzle which makes it hygienic to use. The hard plastic body is travel-friendly as it would not squeeze easily. The packaging is beautiful and looks classy.
About Colorbar Perfect Match Primer:
The brand claims (as mentioned on the packaging) that this is a satiny touch oil-free primer. It masks fine lines and uneven texture, making skin marvellously soft and smooth.
Directions to Use: (As mentioned on the product)
Dab on the product a little all over the face for a smooth surface or use before foundation for perfect complexion and lasting effect.
My personal experience with Colorbar Primer:
As claimed by the brand, this primer indeed has a satin touch. It is extremely smooth in texture and simply glides on the skin. It looks like petroleum jelly but is not at all oily when applied. It is translucent in color and thus is suitable for all skin tones.
I liked the fact that it does not have any kind of smell as I am not a fan of products with artificial fragrances.
Just a small quantity of this primer goes a long way. After applying it, one can clearly feel that the surface of the face has become satin-like smooth and even textured. I have an oily skin type and was worried if this primer would make my face appear oily. But it leaves no oiliness or stickiness behind and the skin looks matte.
When I applied foundation after preparing the skin with this primer, the foundation did not settle in the fine lines around the eyes. The pores of the skin which used to appear even after applying the foundation did not appear after using this primer. I was awestruck with the results. The foundation blended smoothly on the skin and did not have patches.
Even after the end of the day, the foundation was intact and there was no excess oil on my skin. I noticed that this primer actually controlled the sebum production.
I have never been more satisfied with any makeup product ever. The product delivered what it claimed. I am extremely happy and satisfied with the results.
