Since I’ve already racked up quite the impressive (read: overwhelming) makeup collection, including countless lip glosses and eyeshadows in every color and finish from matte to glittery and beyond, I’ve been trying to cut back on indulgent new makeup purchases. But that doesn’t mean I’m giving up on beauty buys — I’m just focusing my shopping efforts (and hard-earned paychecks) on products that help enhance the makeup collection I already have rather than buying more shades I might never use. My latest obsession? Primers. But since I’ve already found my go-to eyeshadow primer (that’s easy – Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin) and favorite foundation primer (the pricey-but-worth-it Dr. Brandt’s Pores No More), the next cosmetics category I’m tackling is lip primers!
While it might seem excessive to try to pick out a primer for every feature on your face, lip primers are totally practical for the season ahead. After all, look-at-me red lipstick and deep berry hues are especially hot during the cooler seasons, and while a bold lip is simply gorgeous, the look can be a bit disastrous if you don’t make sure you have your color on lock! There’s nothing like an unfortunate lipstick smudge to scare you away from a bold shade that you finally worked up the nerve to rock in public! Lip primers help create a smooth canvas for more even application and ensure longer-lasting color that’s less likely to crease, feather, or smudge. I’m personally a fan of Too Faced Lip Insurance, but there are plenty of other promising options, depending on your preference!
