Makeup primer is an important step towards creating the right base. It fills in the pores on the skin and creates a smooth canvas for makeup. The layer of primer helps lock the hydration into the skin; it is usually applied after moisturiser and before the foundation. Primer helps create a smooth canvas for the makeup, giving the skin airbrushed perfection. Applying primer makes the makeup stick to the skin better and last longer too. In short, it locks in your makeup while protecting your skin. Primers come in cream or gel formula and can be clear or tinted. Their main purpose is to give the skin a smoother appearance and minimizing pores. Today I will be reviewing the Nykaa Prep me Up Face Primer which is a new launch by Nykaa Cosmetics.

Packaging and Appearance
The primer comes in a white and pink plastic box which has dotted texture on the front as well as on the sides. It has glossy white plastic tube packaging which is not that great. I wish the packaging was a little better. The primer is in the form of a transparent gel and it is a silicon-based one. The packaging is lightweight and closes with a click sound thus making it perfect for travel purposes.
My Experience with the Nykaa Prep me Up Face Primer
The primer is I the form of a transparent gel which gets absorbed into the skin easily. It builds a perfect canvas for applying foundation by making the skin super soft and smooth. It does blur out the small pores on the skin but it might not work for people with very large pores. I would recommend applying this primer 5-7 minutes after applying moisturizer. I applied it beneath my foundation and the results very quite good. The foundation glides on easily on this primer and lasts for 5-6 hours. It does control oil on my face for a decent period of time. It is suitable for all skin types. Overall, I would say it’s a good and affordable primer. This is the cheapest primer available in this range. I would definitely recommend trying this primer if you are looking for an affordable one.
- No animal testing
- Does keep the makeup intact for a long time
- Packaging seems cheap
