Too Faced Primed Face Primer and MAC Prep + Prime Lip Primer

Hi Girls,

Today, I am going to review about two primers that I purchased a year ago during my sister’s wedding.  There is no shelf life and ingredients specified on the products.  I don’t remember the exact cost that I bought these for, but it was somewhere around $15 each.

I got these through my sister, when she was flying down to India for her wedding.

This is how the product looks and I am going to put down the pros and cons of each primer.

Pros of Too Faced Primed Face Primer:

  • It has a very nice creamy texture.
  • The fragrance is very mild.
  • The nozzle is perfect and doesn’t throw out excess product.
  • Sleek package and travel friendly.
  • Gives a very nice and smooth matte finish to the skin.
  • I got velvety feel to the skin after applying it on the face.
  • Made my skin look almost even.
  • I used it even as an eye primer.
  • Makeup stays good for 3 hours.

Cons of Too Faced Primed Face Primer:

  • Moisturizer is a must or else you are going to have little flakes on the extreme dry portions of your face.
  • Maybe a bit more camouflage for the dark circles would have been great.
  • Nonavailability in India

    i wish i cud own every primer in the cosmetic world & keep in switchin wheneva i fancy :makeup:

    1. HI Vish..

      Every primer has its own purpose..
      A face primer, minimizes pores, evens out skin, controls oil production, due to which your make up is going to stay long.
      A lip primer, conceals & smoothes those fine cracks on your lips, preventing the lipstick to get deep into those cracks.. In brief, it evens out the surface of your lip. It prevents it from smudging/creasing out, so good to go without a lip liner. it has to moisturize as well, when u can’t use your lip balm. Generally lip balms don’t stay long on your lips, because of the creamy texture, less staying power. so i personally believe lip sticks don’t stay long over a lip balm. And there is an alternative(lip primer) that could hydrate your lips for a few hours, making the lipsticks stay for long.. That is the purpose i bought them.. Hope i’m correct.. Am not an expert when it comes to makeup, so this is all i could provide u Vish. Hope it helped.. 🙂
