Hello Everybody, Today I'll be reviewing a face primer by Meilin. 

What is a Primer?

You might have heard the word 'Primer' if you went for painting classes. But I'm talking about the cosmetic Primers. Yes! you heard me right!

"A cosmetic primer is a cream or lotion applied before another cosmetic to improve coverage and lengthen the amount of time the cosmetic lasts on the face." -wikipedia

Price & Quantity: 

Rs.450 for 30 ml (Bought Online)

My experience with the product:

Meilin is a Taiwan makeup brand and it produces many makeup products and is cost-efficient. I was just window shopping online and this primer caught my attention. I was at first little hesitant to buy this Primer because I was scared to try face products from brands which are not known, but after I got my hands on this primer, I was in love! literally L-O-V-E!


This Primer is gel based and very lightweight. When I applied it to my face, my skin felt so soft. I felt like rubbing all day long! (*just kidding*). The primer is absolutely great for its price. It did not break on me so it's a Yay-Yay product! It doesn't have a chemical smell (which is great BTW) and has a very light-to-no smell at all. Once you apply it on your face, it blurs out the pores, it reduces the size of the pores. It lasts up to 5 hours, i.e., it keeps your makeup on point till 5 hours, which is great! The only thing I don't like about this product is that it contains Paraben :(, other than that, for the price it is offered, it is definitely marvelous!
