Lakme has finally come up with its first ever makeup primer, and this primer works pretty well on my oily skin. Today I am going to share my views on this new Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Primer. Let’s get into the review.
Price: INR 650 for 30g
Product Desctiption: A smooth matte texture that’s waterproof and extremely lightweight, Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Primer is your go-to product for a flawless, even-toned face. It creates the perfect base for makeup, makes it last longer and hides all your imperfection.

Step 2: Use your ring finger to dot the primer all over your face.
Step 3: Lightly blend it in a downward direction from your hairline to the neckline.
My Experience with Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Primer:
The primer comes in a nice black cardboard box with all the details. The actual primer comes packaged in a nice black tube with a silver screw on cap. I really like this small, lightweight tube packaging. Also, the dispenser provides the right amount of product. This primer is of good quality and is affordable too.
The primer looks like a light pink moisturizer and it has a very nice fragrance. The texture is like a soft cream that blends super effortlessly. This primer glides like a dream and feels very light on skin. I usually need a small amount of the product. It gets nicely absorbed into the skin and settles down to a velvety-matte texture. It provides that perfect, shine-free and smooth finish, and makes the skin feel baby soft. I really like this velvety-matte texture and it works well on even my oily skin. But this primer is not hydrating enough for dry skin; moisturize your skin well if you have dry skin else your skin will end up feeling dry and stretchy.
It imparts a perfect matte finish on my oily skin and leaves it baby soft. It also covers large open pores. It makes my pores appear less visible and, in fact, almost hides them. I have few open pores around my nose and this primer works really nicely to fill up my pores. It makes my skin appear brighter and even one tone lighter. It also softens the look of light blemishes and spots. It is a universal shade and will go well with all skin tones. My foundation and other makeup products glide smoothly after applying this primer. Thus, my makeup looks flawless and perfect with this primer. Even my BB cream glides on effortlessly and evenly on skin. All the products blend smoothly and stay true to their color on my skin. Hence, the primer helps in achieving a professional finish.
This primer makes my skin look fresher and more glowy. I don’t have a lot of fine lines; only a few baby lines are there around my eyes. This primer doesn’t completely hide them but still makes them less visible making my skin appear smoother. This new primer suits my sensitive skin well and has never broken me out. As it has a matte finish, it can control oil and shine for a good number of hours. It can nicely control oil for around 5-6 hours. After that, my T-zone starts to look a little shiny, but not oily. No matter how many products I apply, they do not appear cakey.
Now, let’s talk about the longevity of this primer. It really helps my makeup stay in place for long. It keeps my makeup in place for more than 7-8 hours. My skin looks fresh even after this time period. It never makes my skin or makeup look dull. It prevents my makeup from creasing too. It even keeps my highlighters and contouring products in place for around 7 hours.
Overall, I really like this primer as it keeps my skin oil-free for a good time period and increases the staying power of my makeup too. It does impart a velvety-matte finish but it is not for dry skin. Also, it is not the most ideal primer for winters.
