Hey everyone, today my post is Colorbar Perfect Match Primer Review. Primer is something which I was not really keen about using before, I always thought it is not a very important step of makeup. Colorbar Perfect Match Primer changed all my notions about using primers.
I was wrong as nothing can give a smooth and even base for foundations other than primers. Sometime back I was on hunt of a good primer, Colorbar being a brand I love, I did not hesitate before getting my first primer from the brand.

What Colorbar Perfect Match Primer Claims
My Experience with Colorbar Perfect Match Primer
The packaging of Colorbar Perfect Match Primer is really sleek, it comes in a thin transparent plastic tube which has a twist up silver reflective cap attached, and comes secured in a reflective cardboard box. Once you open the cap there is a nozzle inside to dispense required amount of product, without causing any product wastage.
Colorbar Perfect Match Primer looks like a clear gel and has medium thick consistency, it is oil free and has no fragrance as well, as a result will work for most skin types. Once you start spreading it, the primer feels extremely smooth and has a slippery feel to it, like most silicone based primers have. I need less than a pea size amount every time, since it spreads easily and little goes a long way which justifies the high price. It is not a good idea to go overboard with this primer since then the foundation tends to slide on otherwise.
I like Colorbar Perfect Match Primer to apply 2-3 minutes before applying foundation and my skin feels smooth on application, it fills the large pores around my nose to an extent and not completely , it kind of blurs out the imperfections on face. My foundations or BB creams glide really smooth on it and last longer as well. Colorbar Perfect Match Primer controls the oiliness on my face and keeps my base looking matte for long which is a boon for me during summers, also it has never caused breakouts on my skin.
Since the primer is a silicone based it may not suit everyone especially to those who have sensitive skin type, so if you skin does not react well to silicons it is a good idea to skip this one. Also the price is relatively on the higher side for Colorbar but since it last for a long time it is worth a try.
Overall, Colorbar Perfect Match Primer is a silicone based oil free primer, which makes a smooth base before application of foundation and BB creams, making them last longer and looking fresh. If you skin is not allergic to silicons then it is a great primer to try.
