DMGM Skin Primer - Review

Hello my lovelies, hope you're all having a wonderful weekend. Today I am going to review the DMGM skin primer.
























The product claims:
Fixes your make up and makes it long - lasting.
Blots away excess oil and makes your skin look completely matte.
Advanced water proof formula provides a protective film on the skin.
Moisturizes and gives the skin a soft and velvety touch.
Minimizes the enlarged pores and appearance of lines.
Use before foundation for perfect complexion. Suitable for all skin types.

Application tips:
Minimizes the enlarged pores and appearance of lines.Use before foundation for perfect complexion.

In my opinion:
I never really felt the need to buy a primer, thanks to my dry skin which never gets oily. I went to Al-Fatah to buy a new face powder, and the DMGM lady (if that's what you call her, heh) introduced me to this baby. She applied it on the back of my hand and that very moment, I knew I had to get it.
The DMGM skin primer comes in a small rectangular tube. The mouth of the tube is small, so you don't have to worry about the leakage. The primer is transparent, odorless and has a gel like consistency which absorbs in no time. What I love most is that it gives my skin a velvety touch and makes it easy for me to apply the foundation.
The primer also claims to minimizes enlarged pores and reduce fine lines and this claim is true to some extent. It gives my skin a matte look and did not not make my skin break out *thumbs up for that*.
I take a small amount, apply it to the face and let it absorb for 10-15 seconds, then apply the foundation.
Although this skin primer is a bit expensive but I love what it does to my skin. I usually wear face powder on daily basis and I use this primer before applying the powder just to absorb any extra oil from my face and for that velvety touch..can't get enough of it. This skin primer is suitable for all skin types and works best for both liquid and powder foundation.

Summary:
You should totally give this primer a try if you've got oily/normal skin. It prepares a smooth canvas to apply the foundation and makes your makeup last for longer. It is transparent & odorless. Reduces fine lines and minimizes pores to some extent. Also, it gives your face a velvety touch.

Price? Would I repurchase it?
I got it for 1200PKR ($11). Yes, I would repurchase it.

The Good:
Gives a matte look
Evens out your skin
Makes your skin soft & velvety
Odorless
Suitable for all skin types
Makeup lasts longer

The Bad:
Pricey for the quantity

Rating: 4/5

thanks for reading, hope you liked it :) What's your favorite skin primer?

  38. I really like your blog, and I love clear primers, I think they have a better finish than tinted ones. I haven't had luck with primers really, they don't seem to work on me..
