Hi loves! How is your week going so far? I had to work most days but now I finally got some time to write another blogpost. Today I'm reviewing a product I have never reviewed (or used) before, which is a lip primer. I ordered this one by NYX about 2 months ago on cherryculture.com because I was very curious. My lips are often chapped or not very even which can make my lipstick go on a little patchy and I hoped a lip primer would help prevent that. I also hoped it would make my lipstick stay in place a little bit longer and provide a nice and even base.
The lip primer by NYX is available in 2 different shades, Nude and Deep Nude, and comes in a twist-up stick. I purchased the shade Nude, which at first I thought would give off a nude color as a base for any lipstick color, but it ended up being transparent. When I was applying this, it reminded me a lot of a regular, more dry lip balm. It has a subtle scent that isn't noticeable on the lips. Personally, I don't really get the point of this lip primer. It doesn't provide a more even base then a lip balm could and as far as prolonging the wearing time of any lipstick, I didn't notice much difference. It's not that I hate this product, I just don't really get it. It does claim that this will prevent your lip color from going outside the lines, but since that's not really an issue for me, I didn't notice that.
For me, this lip primer by NYX doesn't really add anything special to my lips and it is expendable in my opinion. But if you're interested in trying this out for yourself, you can order the lip primer online here for $7 (3g).
