These days all brands come with their own primers and finally, our well-known Indian brand “Lotus” has launched their first Ecostay Insta-Smooth 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 smooth finish and I have bought it quickly. Today, I am going to share my view on this product. Let’s get into the review.
Price: Rs. 675/- for 30g
My Experience with Lotus Makeup Ecostay Insta-Smooth Perfecting Primer:
Like the entire Lotus Ecostay range, this Insta-Smooth Perfecting Primer comes in a pretty pink colored outer box with all the details. The actual primer comes in a nice clear small tube with a rose gold cap. It looks very pretty and easy to carry around. This tube contains 30g of product which is pretty good as a primer and this tube will last long.
It is a 100% vegetarian product and it doesn’t have any additional color or smell in it. This primer is a silicon base clear gel primer that has a medium to thick smooth consistency. It’s soft light texture glides effortlessly on skin and blends seamlessly within a few minutes. I only need a small amount of the product to cover my face. As it is a clear gel primer it will suit all skin tones and perfectly blends without any dryness or patchiness. It feels very light on the skin and it instantly makes my skin super smooth and soft. Its thick texture fills up into my pores and reduces the size of my large pores.
I have very oily skin, but, it instantly makes my skin oil free and provides a super silky velvety matte finish that looks very fresh. It acts as an amazing flawless base for my makeup and helps to provide a smooth application of my makeup. It reduces fine lines and minimal imperfections on the skin. This primer also has a decent amount of hydration in it that keeps our skin soft and moisturised without making the skin greasy. It never highlights any dry patches, even in this winter season. I really like its perfect finish as it instantly makes my skin baby soft. Also, it makes my makeup last longer without any creasing or breaking. It also helps to enhance the color of my makeup properly.
It really increases the longevity of my makeup and keeps my base in its place for longer and it never looks dull. It keeps my skin fresh throughout the day. It also controls shine or oil for a decent amount of time, around-4-5 hours. Wish it kept me oil free a little longer but, I am so happy with it. Overall, I love this primer that suits me nicely and helps to achieve me that flawless base for my makeup without making it oily or dry. It is an amazing skin smoothening primer that instantly makes my skin super smooth. 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 moisturiser before using this primer.
