Day 7: Priming the Pucker
This is a lip primer that garners raves on Makeupalley. It is supposed to fill in lip lines and grab onto lipstick like no other product on the market. I have always wanted to try it but balked at the price tag. I caved due to this 40 day project.
Guerlain packaging always makes the most simple beauty product feel glamorous and special. It might be just a primer but the tube is more sleek than most lipsticks. LipLift does manage to fill in most lip lines. I have creases in my lips and this managed to disguise them a bit. I am not sure if it is fairy magic or the science behind the "spherical microparticles" listed on the ingredients.
The lippie primer has a creamy texture that feels like a moisturizing treatment. It is very balm-like. Lipstick applies smoother and lasts longer. This was the standout feature. My lipstick and lip glosses were wearing off after two hours. This product managed to extend my lip color until lunch time. There was also less lipstick on my coffee cup.
I kept my lippie routine "business as usual". The primer is applied first. I applied one coat and spread the product slightly over my lip line. I patted the product with the tips of my fingers. This helps prevent bleeding of the lipstick. I applied a lipstick with a layering of a sparkling gloss and was out the door. My first touch up was at lunch. My lipstick had worn evenly down into an attractive stain.
Guerlain is available at your local counter at Saks and other fine department stores.
It is around $30.
