Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer Review
Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer

Hello everyone! Hope you all are doing great. Recently, I decided to try a new makeup primer and after going through some research and the customer's most loved category on Nykaa, I finally decided to give Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer a try. I was using Colorbar Perfect Match Primer for a long time and it works well for my oily skin and pores in terms of mattifying and blurring the pores but I felt a little bored with using the same old and that's when I decided to give a new primer a try. If you are looking for a Review on Lakme Blur Perfect Primer, then you are on the right page. Let us get into details. 😊

My Skin Type: Combination to Oily, Sensitive and Acne-Prone Skin. Light to Medium Beige with Pink Undertones.

Packaging: It comes in a black squeezable tube with a screw cap. The nozzle does a good job of dispensing the right amount. It is travel-friendly, mess-free and has all the information you need on the tube. It is good because you will have all the details even after throwing the outer packaging. I liked it.

Colour, Texture, and Consistency: The texture and consistency are exactly like Lakme CC Cream. Soft, lightweight and air-like texture. For dry skin people this might not be that appealing but if you have oily skin, you will find that really cool. I love this soft and airy texture.

Fragrance: It has some kind of sweet-citrussy fragrance. Some may like and some may not because it also smells like a medical syrup. 😃Not a heavy scent because I can't bear heavily scented products. But the plus point, the fragrance fades away once you start blending in the product.

True to most of its Claims

It claims to give instant brightness, creating a smooth base, softening and blurring, effortlessly blending and color true finish and yes it is true to most of its claims. It does brighten up instantly giving my skin a soft, slightly blurred and a smooth base for my makeup application. I love how it preps my skin for makeup.

Instantly Brightens Up

It has a peachy tint to it which instantly made my skin look brighter and fresh. I mean it was easily noticeable that how it is leaving an even bright finish on my face. It sorts of evens the skin making it a smooth and bright base for makeup. I love the way it preps my skin for makeup by giving a fresh and bright base.

Blends in Effortlessly

I heard a few people saying it takes time to blend in but I personally didn't face any such issue. I always take a tiny amount of product, apply in dots, dab it and blend it in. So for me, it wasn't much a problem and it was quickly absorbed and blended it on my skin.

Gave me a Soft and Smooth Base

Literally, it created soft to touch and smooth base for my makeup. I could feel my skin like baby soft. 😍 And I was enjoying that softness on my cheeks. 

Made Foundation/BB Cream Application Smoother

I tried this with both BB Cream and Foundation and it absolutely made the application a lot smoother. I used my fingers to feel the difference and my BB Cream was gliding so softly. It also depends on the product to the product and its consistency but it definitely made the application a lot smoother. Even better than my Colorbar Primer.

Softens and Blurs up to Some Extent

It claims to soften and blurs, and yes it does. My skin texture instantly seems to be a little blurred and soft. But it doesn't do much on blemishes or pores. I mean it does soften my pore area a little but doesn't provide much of blurring effect on my pores. I could easily see pores around my nose. But overall, it does give a soft and blurry effect over the skin texture.

Softens the Pore Area but Doesn't Blur them

As mentioned above, it does softens the skin texture but not my pores. If you have pores issues or if you are looking for a primer specifically for your pores which mattifies and blurs them, then this will not work for you. My pore area looked little softer but not blurred. I do not have extremely visible pores so it is quite okay for me but the Colorbar Match Perfect Primer did a better job in blurring and mattifying my pores. Because I have oily skin, my pore area gets little more visible sometimes so I am planning to give PAC Pore Primer a Try.

Does Mattify a Little

Though it doesn't claim to be, I noticed it has a slight mattifying effect. Not something like mattifying primer but a slight matte effect was noticeable. If you have excessive shine on your face and you are looking for a mattifying primer, this might not work for you. I don't have much of shine so it worked great for me.

Increases the Longevity of Makeup

I wore it for an event around 11:00 AM or so and it helped my makeup to stay in place for a good long time. Well, I can't compare it with some high-end primers who might work better than this in increasing the longevity but when comparing non-primed makeup application, it totally works on increasing the longevity of makeup. To sum up, it stayed for a good 7 hours or so I guess. 

In terms of controlling my oiliness, I guess it does a little help but I always set my face with FACES Loose Powder and my under eyes with Wet n Wild Contour Kit. So, I guess this combination works pretty good in controlling the oil and I didn't look like a grease turkey after a few hours. 😃

Neither Moisturizes nor Dries up the Skin

It doesn't dry up my skin and neither adds any moisture. I have combination to Oily skin and I wore it after my Himalaya Youth Eternity Moisturizer or after my Biotique Morning Nectar and it worked well. 😊 I didn't feel any heaviness after applying it over my moisturizer.

Can be worn Alone

It has a peachy tint to it and softens the skin texture so yes, it can be worn daily for that even toned no-makeup makeup look. But to me, wearing it daily didn't work so well. I got breakouts and clogged pores after using regularly for just 2 or 3 days. My SUGAR BB Cream does a good job for daily use.  And not only when I wore it daily, it simply gave me tiny pimples whenever I used it.

Gave me Breakouts

First, I used it on a daily basis on its own because I liked that soft, bright and even-toned look but I noticed I am getting clogged pores and it is breaking me out. So I thought maybe that daily use isn't fit for me. But when I wore it occasionally under my makeup, I noticed a few pimples again. Between all the good, this is the con which is a major con. I have super sensitive and acne-prone skin so this can be the reason too. If you have sensitive and acne-prone skin, this might not work for you.

Also, if you are wondering what I did then to heal my pimples? I always keep used green tea bags in a bowl in my fridge and I use that cold green tea bag over my pimples or simply all over my face before going to bed. This totally helps in fading away the pimples.

Lakme Blur Perfect Primer Vs. Colorbar Match Perfect Primer

I still don't know which is better because both have something individually which I like. Lakme one provides multiple benefits such as brightening and evening out the skin tone, providing a soft and smooth makeup application. It is lightweight but doesn't noticeably blur the pores like Colorbar primer does. Colorbar Primer doesn't provide those added benefits but nicely mattifies and blurs the pores. I don't mind having both of them in my vanity but I am sure this review and comparison will help you in some way to decide what exactly you want.

In Short,
Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer is lightweight and does a great job in prepping the skin for smooth makeup application. It instantly gave my skin a boost of brightness and slightly evens my skin. It is easy to blend and deffinately gave me a soft and smooth base which made makeup application smoother. It does softens and blurs the skin texture upto a little but doesn't noticeably blurs the pores. Not a heavy duty pore primer. Gave me breakouts so not for sensitive and acne-prone skin.
