Long time no blog here. Bad lip beauty blogger me. Anyway, today I am here to give a review on Models Prefer Lip Primer - which got sent to me eons ago for review…but I forgot. Sorry!
Lip primer is different to the functions of lip balm. Lip primer is designed to provide a smooth base prior to lipstick or lip gloss application and to intensify and prolong the lip colour on top by preventing smudging and creasing. Very similar to the functions of eye shadow primer.
I may not always prime my lips with a lip primer per se, but I always use a lip balm or lip cream on my lips prior to lipstick application, especially when I am swatching for the blog. This means that I can remove the lip colour easily without me scrubbing my lips to smithereens. (Yes, I think I just made up a word!)
Anyway, back to Models Prefer Lip Primer, I like it for the following reasons :-
1. It is nice and slim, making it easier to apply on lips.
2. It is unscented. This is very important because a lot of lipsticks have a lipstick scent and imagine if the lip primer had a scent and it mixed with the lipstick scent and it created a offensive scent…you get me?
3. It’s multi-purpose because it doubles up as a lip balm too because it’s quite moisturising and doesn’t dry out my lips.
4. It costs less than $10! From Priceline, my favourite drugstore in Australia.
BUT. There’s always a but, isn’t there?
But it doesn’t iron out all my lip wrinkles and it has a hint of shine – which makes it unsuitable for matte finishes. And umm…I wound it up too much the other day and the whole thing fell out…but I shoved it back in.
Nevertheless, I suggest you give Models Prefer Lip Primer a try if you’re looking for an inexpensive base for lipstick. They also have an eye primer in their Prime & Perfect range which I am keen to try too.
