Good Primers are so expensive. So, I have brought you my HG primer that balances quality and cost quite well. Colorbar Perfect Match Primer is a must have product if you are looking for an affordable primer.

MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE
I heart this primer. It is excellent in fulfilling it’s claims. I generally avoid using primer as a part of my makeup routine maybe except during weddings or parties. My skin works fine without it. But there are times when my skin has a mood of its own and decides to be super uneven and has bumps all over because of open pores. There comes my saviour – Colorbar Perfect Primer.
So yes, I definitely recommend this product. It works great. An affordable primer which actually fulfills it’s claims.
