Makeup is an essential part of our daily routine and we would do anything to slay it! A flawless base is what helps to pull the entire look together and keep you looking great all day long! Primers play a major role in helping the makeup stay by mattifying the skin, filling up pores and smoothing the face. So, as the title suggests, we present to you a review of the NYX Pore Filler Primer! Does it really help? Find out below 😉
Price: INR 1425/- for 20ml of product
What the tube says?: Creates a satiny smooth finish, minimizing the appearance of enlarged pores. Can be worn over, under or without makeup
Ingredients: This talc-free oil-free formulation contains skin loving ingredients like Vitamin E known for skin conditioning and anti-oxidant properties. Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Silica, Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Isononyl Isononanoate, Isododecane, Polymethyl Methacrylate, VP/Hexadecene Copolymer, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol. MAY CONTAIN / PEUT CONTENIR (+/-): Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, 77492, 77499).
Packaging: The NYX pore filler primer comes packed in a white coloured tube which is very basic and simple! The front has the product description while the back has other details! I love the fact that it can easily be carried around without taking up much space; as it is tiny and super handy! It comes with a transparent nozzle which dispenses the product!
Color and Texture: The primer is beige with peachy undertones! It has a mousse like consistency and at first the product looks gritty, but it doesn’t have any particles to it and spreads evenly on the face! It dries to a powdery finish (good news for oily skinned beauties!)
Fragrance: I love fragrances; be it in anything! This one has a very chemical-y smell to it that repels me! I don’t like it; HONESTLY! It doesn’t linger for long though!
Efficiency: I have been using the pore filler for about seven months now and it does create a flawless base for my foundation. I love how it gives an airbrushed feel by filling up pores! The foundation glides on effortlessly; being a silicone based product! However, I feel if you have very oily skin it wouldn’t help control oil for more than five hours! On me it lasts pretty much 10 hours!
Mommy Verdict: I really like the NYX Pore Filler Primer as it makes my skin velvety soft and applying foundation was never this easy! It helps with filling up pores and controlling oil. I wouldn’t suggest it to women with super oily skin though! Overall, I am satisfied with what it does to my skin!
