My Experience with Essence My Beauty Lip Ritual Step 03 Prime It:
The lip primer comes in a white plastic lipstick like case. It is not sealed. There is a little information printed on the tube. It has a twist-up package. The cap closes with a click and closes well. It doesn’t open in the bag to cause any mishaps. This primer is the third step in the ritual. The product is claimed to make a perfect base for the lipstick.
The primer is white in color and looks like a chalk. It has weird old oil like smell and I hate it. I wish there was some added fragrance to cover it up. It is off putting but it doesn’t stay long. However, it tastes a little odd and I hate putting it on my lips for this reason.
The lip primer is white, but when applied it is transparent. It is creamy and glides very smoothly. It does leave a white cast but fades away pretty quickly. It contains macadamia and shea butter along with Vitamin E to provide a beautiful finish. The product makes the lips extremely smooth and soft.
The lip primer doesn’t make the dry lips go away and it deposits in between the dryness, so you need to exfoliate your lips well if you need a good application. The product doesn’t leave any greasy residue nor does it create an oily film. The finish is matte and it does sink into the lips.
The primer does make a perfect base. You need to apply the primer first and then top it up with a lip liner and lipstick. The primer sticks the lipstick onto it and holds it longer. I found this the best for matte or normal lipsticks. It lengthens the wear of the lipsticks and also holds onto it longer. The lipsticks last for 2 hours longer at least. With glosses, I do not feel much of a difference. The product also contains SPF 15 which is great.
