Linndsey A.'s (LanniXO) Beauty Product Reviews
I am a really big fan of this primer. I've tried several different kinds over the years, but have never been impressed as much as this one. Yes it is pricey, but to me it's very worth it if you can shell out the cash. This primer doesn't feel heavy or oily, but in fact is great for my oily skin. Smooths on and creates a canvas where I can easily apply my foundation to perfection.
I've tried this once before..years ago when it was in the old packaging and didn't care for it because of that alone. I switched to using Too Faced's Shadow Insurance for a few years which I did like, but NOW I am back to UDPP. I am a fan of this product again ever since they finally put it into an easy to use squeeze tube!
I think this is a very good primer. It's been one of my favorites for years and have been through a handful of tubes since I first discovered it. Nowadays though I have been reaching for my UDPP instead which I never used to do. BUT ever since the packaging on primer potion was improved, I've been preferring that one slightly more than Too Faced's. With the past couple of tubes of TFSI's I've had, I've been noticing a clear oil type separation in the formula. It hasn't been too big of a deal for me, but I will most likely be stocking up on more UDPP when I run out of this one.
Been reaching for this color on a regular basis over the past several months. It's such a pretty shade! Admittedly I've been hooked on coral pinks and bright neons, but I always come back to this color!
So so with the moisturizing
I've tried the mint, cucumber melon, and summer fruit flavors over the years and didn't love the product. It just doesn't work that well for me when it comes to moisturizing my lips. I'm a big lip balm junkie so I will pass on this product from now on in favor of other balms that really get the job done. The only thing I liked about it is the uniquely cute egg shaped packaging.
I really tried to force myself to finish using all the colors from my first Naked palette (and palettes from other brands) before buying this one--BUT I finally caved in last week. The colors are so pretty and neutral. As I suspected, it's a palette that I've been using on a daily basis and great for creating a polished look at work. The colors and formulation are very smooth and easy to blend out.
