Hey Everyone,
Today on the blog i will be reviewing a make-up or face primer from Essence cosmetics named Essence My base illuminating make-up base. There is a huge range of face primer available in the market dealing with different needs/issues, for different skin types. I have earlier reviewed a few more primers have a look here Accessorize Impeccable Skin PrimerBodyography Foundation Primer Clear, L'Oreal Base magique Transforming PrimerMakeup Forever Corrective Makeup Base  & Kryolan Ultra Underbase Plus. Coming back to this primer/Make-up base, it's specially meant for illuminating or brightening complexion along with other usual qualities of a primer, So let's zoom in to find out more about this one:


What Brand says:

Made in Germany

My experience with the product:


Packaging:


The make-up base comes in a small, nude color tube packaging with a pull to open cap that locks in properly. It also has a pump dispenser which makes the packaging hygienic one. But practically i don't think i was required firstly because the primer does not come in a bottle/jar and for such easy to squeeze tube why would one need a pump moreover when i used it for the first time use i literally had to pump like 15-20 times to get the product out, though it comes out easily now. On the back side a little description is provided along with the ingredients list.

Product:


This make-up base/primer has nude-ish pearly pink color which is packed with shimmers which makes the skin glow or illuminate when you apply it. The shimmers are very fine quality and disappear when you blend the product on skin, leaving a gorgeous brightening glow. So basically it's a brightening primer which other than brightening complexion also smooth out skin texture thus helps to make foundation application and blending easier. If you are looking for a primer that also illuminates the complexion, this is something you have got to try. But it disappoints, when it comes to extend wear time of foundation. I have tried this one with many foundations but the result was same with each, it simply do nothing to extend the wear time of the foundation though the skin does feel more moisturized after it is blended.

Texture and consistency:


The primer has a rich creme texture that help to keep the skin moisturized but mind you it is of thick consistency(though blends easily) plus shimmer packed, one only need a pea size if you want to use this as an allover primer for full face and neck. If you want to brighten the center part of face then you just need about half amount of that, more of this may turn you to a disco ball instead of that lovely illuminating glow :D

Fragrance:

It is Fragrance free

Affordability:


The 20 ml of the product is decent enough to last for many months as it's rich creme texture plus thick consistency, so you don't need too much of this in fact just a little is good enough. In India, it's available for 499 Indian rupee which according to me is a very decent price tag for a primer. Right?

Pros:


1) Cute little tube, travel friendly
2) Rich creme texture keeps skin moisturized
3) Gives Gorgeous brightening glow to skin
4) Fragrance free
5) Decent pricing
6) Works great to illuminate features
7) Blends beautifully, shimmers can't be detected
8) Improves skin texture
9) Very less quantity required

Cons:


1) Does not extend wear time of foundation
2) Pump dispenser quality is surely not the best
3) May not work for Oily skin

Overall Rate:

4/5

Verdict: This makeup base works excellent for brightening dull complexion and quickly adds that beautiful illuminating glow to the complexion. It also keeps the skin moisturized but does not do any thing to extend the wear time of foundation. If you are looking for a brightening/illuminating primer, go for it. If you are looking for a primer that illuminates along with extending wear time of makeup, this is definitely not that. I have a dry skin and i love the beautiful glow it delivers, it can be used on certain area as well to highlight instead of applying all over. Not recommended for oily skin.


Hope you find this review helpful enough to decide on your purchase decision. Let me know what you think?
Till next time..
