A quick review: Urban Decay Lip Primer Potion
I love lipstick and lipgloss. But I have 2 major difficulties with them: they're often drying and they don't last very long. (And I don't take the time to reapply through the day, the guys with whom I share the office wouldn't understand!)
Using a lip balm under my lipstick has helped the dryness but not the lasting. So I thought I would give this new primer a try.
Here's how Urban Decay describes it:
Our invisible primer lays a silky foundation for your favorite lipstick or gloss. Color is truer, applies smoother, lasts longer, and will not fade or feather. The easy-glide formula feels velvety-soft, without the drying feeling often associated with long-lasting lip color.
Oh and it also has SPF 15.
Well I don't know if I got a bad one but mine doesn't glide easily, I find it kind of hard to apply. But I can live with that, since it's actually not drying and mostly, it really makes my lipstick last longer - the whole morning I would say.
I does soften the color a bit but if you blot and apply a second layer, you will get good payoff.
I must also say that it doesn't have a scent or a taste at all, which is good, and it doesn't tingle (something I hate about a lot of lip products).
So to me this product is a keeper, and should be part of every lipstick addict's makeup bag. I will definitely repurchase.
