nykaa prep me up makeup primer review

Recently, I decided to try a new face primer and after some research, I took Nykaa prep me up face primer a try. Frankly, I am not a primer lover, but I have been thinking of using a new primer for a long time. Already, I was using Blue Heaven and Colorbar primer and these are works very well on my dry to combination skin.

I really like that Nykaa as a brand is introducing some amazing products and they are very pocket friendly. Also good in terms of quality. Nykaa prep me up primer is one of them. After using, I feel how good this primer is.

Today in this blog, I’m going to share the Nykaa Prep Me Up primer review and I also did an application test. So I can exactly tell you everything in detail as much as possible. Let us get into the details.

What’s Face Primer?

The face primer not only creates a silky-smooth, clear canvas to glide your makeup. It also helps your face and eye makeup stay all day long without creasing and fading. Makeup primer/face primer makes our makeup 100 times better, oil-free and long-lasting. Fa without any cream or liquid formula. That gives you a smooth surface primers come in a gel, cream, or liquid formula. That gives you a smooth surface without any large pores, dry-flaky patches on the skin or rough skin textures.

Types Of Face Primer:

There are two categories in the face primer. 1) Silicone-based makeup primer and 2) Water-based makeup primer.

Silicone-based makeup primer gives your face a matte and enormous smooth finish for base makeup. It controls oil better than a water-based face primer.

Water-based primer gives a more dewy, moisturized face. But it isn’t properly able to blur out skin imperfection.

How does face primer work?

Face primer is one of the vital makeup products that give us a clear and super smooth face to apply foundation, concealer, and even also the eye makeup perfect and flawlessly. It prevents makeup from creasing, settles down into the creases (on the lip area, or under the eyes), or creates dry patches. And it does not make your base makeup cakey.

Packaging of Nykaa Prep Me Up Face Primer:

This time Nykaa has done a very girly packaging with its prep me up face primer. It comes in a white and pink paper box and some dotted textures are there on the entire box. All information about the makeup primer is written on the box. The actual primer comes in a white glossy plastic tube. The tube is secure by the flip-top cap and it is pink in color.

The outer packaging of this Nykaa Prep Me Up makeup primer is very beautiful and classy. But the tube is not looking good because of its glossy packaging. Otherwise, this Nykaa makeup primer is very handy and safe to carry.

Nykaa Face Primer How To Use:

How much face primer should I use that is the question arise at the time of face primer application. And the answer is – less is more when it comes to primers. Always apply a moisturizer before you apply the primer. Wait a few minutes for the primer to fill the pores and create a smooth complexion before you go to your foundation. The main aim of lightweight silicone-based makeup primer is to give the skin a smooth surface and minimizes the pores of the face.

Take a pea-sized amount and apply it on your skin before makeup application. Blend it outwards in gentle circular motions for a smooth finish.

Nykaa Prep Me Up Primer Review:

Like most silicone-based makeup primers the texture looks like a clear gel. The consistency is not too thick nor runny, It is in between. You can easily spread it and after applying Nykaa prep me up face primer it feels very smooth and silky on the skin. It will work on most of the skin types because of its oil-free and not dried out the skin.

This makeup primer has no smell that is great. Personally, I do not like scented makeup products.

In India our super humid, sweaty climate, we need some extra protection to make our makeup long-lasting and oil-free. And Nykaa face primer does this job very perfectly. It controls the secretion of oil from oil glands of the face for hours. Along with this, it blurs out open pores noticeably and evens out our skin textures.

After applying Nykaa prep me up primer, truly it does make a difference. Makeup with and without primer are a ways apart. Regarding the claims, it definitely blurs pores and smoothens skin and I’m literally shaking with the texture of my skin after applying this. On my dry to combination, it works very well. Not make my skin dry nor oily. Also, do not break out my skin.

In the picture below you can see how actually the Nykaa makeup primer works.

Application test of Nykaa makeup primer

This primer is a gel-like, which is great. It doesn’t leave any unnecessary colour on my complexion. It provides a good canvas for the rest of the makeup. It literally makes my makeup (foundation/concealer/BB/cc) looks much more flawless & smoother.

You may be a little disappointed with the amount of money you spend on this primer. But you only need a little bit so don’t bother with that. I don’t apply a full face every day, that is why I am happy with the quantity and the price of the product. You can throw away the outer packaging because every detail is given on the tube itself. Travel friendly and worth a try.
