Rs.450 for 30 ml (Bought Online)

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 light weight. 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 its 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!


Consistency of the product

PROS:

1) Cost Efficient
2) No funny Smell
3) Reduces pores
4)Lasts up to 5 hours (Great for its price)

CONS:

1) Contains Paraben
2) Availability

OVERALL RATINGS: **** (4 /5)
