“Not to prime is a crime”,its true indeed. It helps finesse your foundation, helping your skin stay flawless longer.Across the world, very well known makeup gurus stress the importance of priming skin for great looking makeup.Recently , I got my hands onÂ Lotus Herbal Eco Stay Insta Smooth Perfecting Primer.Â It’s the first primer from Lotus Herbals. After trying this primer quite a few of times here is my review.
Price- INR 675 for 30 gm
My Experience withÂ Lotus Herbal Eco Stay Insta Smooth Perfecting PrimerÂ
The primer comes in a sleek card board box with the signature detailing of eco stay range.Although,The the product comes in a transparent tube with a silver cap.The opening of the tube has tiny hole to dispense the right amount of product .Lotus herbals retails this primer for INR 675.This primer comes handy and it is easy to deal with.
The texture of this primer is just like a clear gel,it reminds me of Â green leaf Aloe vera gel. The texture is quite light and consistency is just perfect.
I need a small amount at a time. It gives perfectly soft , shine-free and velvety smooth finish. I really like this velvety-matte texture and it works well on even my oily skin.It doesn’t give white cast if used more than required and doesn’t give any stretchy feel as well.
I adore this primer. I have acne prone -oily skin which tends to dry in winters.This primer makes my skin smooth and soft.It gives instant fresh look.I have used loads of primers and i must ay at this price this does full justice to most of its claims.this primer is safe for sensitive skin and never broke me out.
Now lets talk about the staying power of this baby. It keeps makeup in place for more than 5+ hours. It does prevent cake-y ness of my base makeup .Â It is great for those who don’t prefer silicon based heavy makeup primers.although it will not do justice for people with dry skin in winters.It does commendable job to prevent my makeup from creasing.
Overall, I would say it is good primer for people who has oily skin and i have noticed one more thing about this primer that it just need a small Â amount at a time because too much amount of primer leads to build -up on your face. Highly recommended for beginners.
