Hey everyone, I will be reviewing another product from PAC Cosmetics which is the studio finish makeup primer. I have already reviewed their intense duo eyeliner pencil so if you want to know about it please click on the link. As I have combination to oily skin, my makeup does not last very long unless I use a primer. Hence a makeup primer is important for controlling skin oils as well as it increases the longevity of makeup. So to know a bit more about the product please keep on reading the PAC Studio Finish Makeup Primer Review.

In Detail PAC Studio Finish Makeup Primer Review and My Experience
The PAC studio finish primer comes in a matte black sleek opaque bottle packaging. It comes with with a pump dispenser. So it’s hygienic as well as easy to use. The pump dispenses just the right amount of product. On back side of the bottle there is complete ingredient list mentioned along with the date of expiry. So it’s overall a very handy, sleek and informative packaging as well as travel friendly.
The PAC studio finish primer is a transparent product which is in a gel form. The texture of the primer is moderately thick but it blends out easily on the skin. My skin feels very soft and smooth when I apply this primer. Creates a very smooth base for the foundation. One needs a pea sized amount of product per usage. If you take more than required or excess of product, the foundation may actually end up slipping from the skin.
PAC Primer helps my makeup stay for longer period of time and also controls my excess natural skin oils very well. PAC also claims that it minimises pores and brightens up the complexion. However, I can definitely see that it helps in minimising pores but I can’t really notice a brightening effect on the skin tone. This primer almost reminds me of my Colorbar perfect match primer. I don’t really see any difference in both the primers. They perform equally good. Overall I like the primer but hope it would have been a little more budget friendly.

Would I Recommend PAC Studio Finish Makeup Primer
Well I like it. But at this price, it didn’t do anything out of the box. It is a pretty decent product but for Rs. 885/- I had hoped for some wow factor.
1) Use makeup primer after the moisturiser and before the foundation.
2) To increase the longevity of the makeup always apply a primer.
3) It works well for beauties with oily to combination skin.
4) Silicone causes some skin types to breakout so make sure you test it out on a small area of skin before using it on the face.
