Hey people,I don’t use foundations; At least not yet :P. Thus, I never felt the need of using a makeup primer. Primer is considered more or less as a magic potion which blurs out skin, reduces pores and acts as the canvas for makeup. I use tinted moisturizers and BB creams for daily needs and for parties too. I read some time back that primer is needed even for BB creams as it prolongs the wear time of makeup. Therefore, I purchased this Lakme primer to test out the magical claims of primer. Let’s see how it fares.
Basic info of the Lakme primer
Rs 650 for 30gm.

• Creates the perfect base for makeup and helps it stay for longer.
• Hides skin imperfections and give you an even toned skin.
• It is lightweight, waterproof, and has a smooth matte texture.
My experience with Lakme Primer
First things first, I think the packaging looks like that of Bobbi Brown’s. Nevertheless, it looks quite elegant and pretty in your vanity. The tube is quite sturdy and it dispenses the right amount of product as in the case of prime one needs to be careful not to go overboard. The primer has a pink tint which brightens up the skin. I would say that almost all of the claims are true.
My pores are reduced but not completely gone which is fine as it isn’t visible to others. It makes for a smooth canvas and I can see that my BB cream works so much better. It does make my makeup stay for long than usual, say 6-7 hours. It blurs out the skin true to its name reducing the appearance of dark spots and it is lightweight too. Only a small amount is needed which makes it the most affordable of all the other primers out there. The only con is that it if you do not blend it properly, it turns powdery and you end up with flecks of it.
Overall performance of the Lakme Primer
It is a good primer which does fulfill almost all of its claims. A beginner would take time in using it. I like this as it blurs out the skin, evens my skin tone, reduces pores and makes my skin smooth for makeup application for an affordable price.
Would I recommend?
A resounding yes!! It is a great option for people who want to try out primers in the Indian market.
