Flawless makeup is incomplete without a perfect primer. I never realized the power of a primer before using one. These days all brands come with their own primers and finally, our well-known Indian brand. To try something new, I recently laid my hands on Lotus Ecostay Insta Perfecting Primer. I didn’t have any plan to buy it but, the store girl forced me to take a patch test and this primer instantly won my heart with its super silky finish and I have bought it quickly.
Today, Let’s talk about it in detail.
It feels very light on the skin and it instantly makes my skin super smooth and soft. Its thick texture fills up my pores and reduces the size of my large pores. I have dry skin, but it provides a super silky velvety matte finish that looks very fresh. It acts as an amazing perfect base for my makeup. This helps to provide a smooth application of my makeup. It reduces fine lines and minimal imperfections on the skin. It also instantly prepares skin for further makeup application so that the makeup stay put for longer hours and gives a satin-smooth finish. It also helps to enhance the color of my makeup properly. The primer also contains Vitamin E among other ingredients, which is an antioxidant helping fight the signs of aging and protecting skin from sun damage. The primer is 100% vegetarian. The product is safe to use on sensitive and acne-prone skin.
Overall, I love this primer that suits me nicely and helps to achieve that flawless base for my makeup without making it oily or dry. It is an awesome skin smoothening primer that instantly makes my skin super pleasant. It is quite hard to find an affordable yet good primer in India and it is a nice option to go with for all the skin types. Only thing is, this primer is not super hydrating for extremely dry skin so, they might need a moisturizer before using this primer.
