Like everyone else I will do almost anything to help my lipstick last. I picked this up a few months ago, and have used this sparingly. PS Don’t mind the poor appearance of the container, it’s sat in the bottom of my makeup bag for a long time now.
The lipstick primer comes in a pretty small tube, but then again a little goes a long way. It has a doe foot applicator. To use you apply a little to your lips, rub together once and let dry. After letting it sit for about a minute you apply your lipstick and you are set.
How well does this work? Well honestly I saw minimum difference in wear time. I really wanted to love this. The only difference I see is that my dark lipsticks don’t leave such a dark tint once it wears away.
With no eating when using this my lipstick can last about 5 to 6 hours. With light snacking 4 hours. During a meal a 1 hour tops. Using this while at a party with light snacking, and drinking 3 hours tops.
I do have to say this does not interfere with reapplication of lipstick. It doesn’t leave a bad taste. Has no scent. No color so it doesn’t interfere with the color of the lipstick.
VERDICT: Is it worth the splurge? Maybe. I don’t think I will personally buy this again. But for someone who wears lipstick all the time, or at least a lot it’s something to look into. Is it worth the $19? I say no, if it was $10 I would definitely would buy it again. Can be bought at Sephora, Ulta or online at toofaced.com
