This is my new HG primer. My MUFE HD primer had crossed its expiry date so I was looking for a new primer. I had heard about this primer during my Makeup Classes days. Later I confirmed it with Nupur and she also mentioned that I should totally go for this.
It comes in a little red glass jar. A small spatula is provided with the product to scoop out the product. The primer is in light beige pink color and has a thick cream like texture. It spreads easily and makes your skin super duper uber smooth. It not only helps foundation go easily and smoothly on skin, it totally reduces the appearance of pores. And for someone like me , who does not have larger pores to deal with, it makes my skin look almost pore-less. 😀 It helps makeup looking fresh all day long. It never broke me out. But this contains silicone in it so this may not be the best primer skin care wise. Those who are sensitive to silicone based products, please avoid this one. This may break you out.
A little goes a long way and the tiny pot would last you quite long.
I personally love it. This would work on most skin types and those who are looking for a pore minimizing primer, definitely give this a shot.
Here is the picture of before and after using the primer. I don’t know if you can make out but if you notice in the 2nd picture, the lines on my wrist are looking smoother.
