Quantity: 3 gm.
The eye and lip primer comes in a cute, simple, small glass pot packaging. I don’t know why it reminds me of packaging of Bobbi Brown products 😛 like they have the same black lid and glass pot type packaging too 😀 😀
Okay, since it’s a pot type packaging, you need a brush or you can even apply with finger tips. Personally, I prefer to use my clean, sanitized finger tips to apply this, as it warms up the product a little and makes blending easier. A blush/concealer brush would be equally convenient too.
(It looks a little dark here , my camera wasn’t picking up the right colour, its much lighter in reality).
My Take on BH Cosmetics Eye and Lip Primer:
I got this eye and lip primer around 2-3 months back along with other things from BH cosmetics. As claimed, it is indeed silky and blends very easily, quickly on my eye lids. The texture is creamy, lightweight and the is a little like the shade of concealer I use, so I can skip concealing my above the eye area when I use this.
To check its effectiveness, I did my eye makeup on one eye lid after applying this and one without this and the immediate effect was pretty evident. The primer intensifies and makes my eye shadows more vibrant, which you can even check in the picture of swatch 2 above.
It controls well the oil and greasiness on the lids and thus makes my eye shadows stay put for a longer period of time without smudging, fading, creasing and melting.
I had one old eye shadow palette which I wasn’t using much because it had very bad pigmentation and staying power. I used it with this product and the effect is much better now.
I have also tried it on the lips and noticed that it makes my lipsticks more long wear than what they actually are. Also, it would be great for girls who have pigmented lips as it will provide a good light colored base to their lips and the lipstick shades would appear better.
I cannot really compare this with MAC paint pot, but overall, I am more than satisfied with this product and I use it almost everyday.
