I don’t know about you but I’ve always thought of lip primers to be a bit of a gimmick. They just seemed kind of pointless, you know? I finally gave in and purchased one after I heard Mariah Leonard rave about this lip primer. The Urban Decay Ultimate Ozone Multipurpose Primer Pencil (and breathe…)
This has become one of my most used products very quickly. This is not a gimmick. This is not a waste of money. And if your matte lipsticks are killing your lips I would seriously suggest picking this up.
This primer is completely clear and once applied, leaves a tacky surface on the lips for your lipsticks to adhere to. It completely prevents feathering and uneven fading or crumbling of the lipstick.
I think the best part about this primer is that it creates a barrier between the lips and your drying lipsticks. I find that when I take off my matte lipsticks at the end of the day my lips don’t feel as dry and parched when I use this primer underneath. Overall, I really recommend it!
Urban Decay claims this can be used on other parts of the face to fill in lines or correct makeup mistakes. I haven’t used it for those purposes yet but it’s nice to know you have the option! Are there any lip primers that you can’t live without? I definitely would be interested to try a few different ones!
