My View:Urban Decay Lip Primer Potion

Perhaps because it is overshadowed by the cult-like popularity of its eyeshadow primer cousin, but the lip primer potion by Urban Decay is a product I feel that doesn't get enough love. Well I love this stuff, and think it is an underrated product in the Urban Decay line. Sometimes I like what it does to my lips so much I wear it alone.

It is a balm-like consistency that smooths out and primes the lip for other lip products. While it isn't traditionally something that is meant to tone down the color of very pigmented lips (like MAC lip erase) as it is a clear consistency while applied, I find that it does smooth my lips out so nicely that the color isn't as noticeable or distracting as my lips are pre-product... and trust me, it looks like I had a fight with a cherry popsicle with nothing on, I should know. 

It kind of makes your lips look like "your lips but better" or puts your lips through something like a soft focus filter on a camera the way it perfects the lip's canvas. If you have full lips, or lines on your lips you should check this out, it really makes my lips so much better looking. It also does make your lipstick stay on slightly longer, although I don't find it makes my lip products wear all day or anything. But it makes my lips look airbrushed, so product wear aside, I love this baby! 


I also wanted to thank Sarah for tagging me for another award. Her blog, Sarah xo, is one of my favorites, and she is such a sweetheart! You made my day Sarah, thank you!

@sammykins...did you make sure to leave a comment below to enter for the contest? i'm going to check your giveaway right now!!!

@troprouge- I will for sure take pics and post them. I tried this morning and for some reason I am such a spaz and couldn't get a good picture of my lips. It kept being like a close up of my nose..haha. I have very full lips that are lined, so I think it airbrushes and smooths out those lines for me. Will try to take those pictures again asap! xoxo

Thank you Logan for stopping by and leaving a comment! You just made my day! :) I left a comment there and this is what I wrote:

I always strive to make it easy to read, airy and visually pleasing.

I love hearing from my readers and I'm glad you found me, even if it was randomly, because isn't that the best kind of find?

First off, CONGRATS on ur new award! u SO deserve it! Next, i wanted to show some love for your post and Urban Decay's Lip Primer Potion. i have very dry lips with a lot of lines and when i use this my lipstick is less likely to settle into those cracks and is far more longer lasting. Lastly, u left a comment on my "i need perfume-aholics" post the other day and i accidentally erased...actually not sure if i erased or if it resulted from the fact my Blogger site was going crazy while i was trying to make that post?!?! whatever happened i just wanted to let u know i wasn't being an enormous meanie and deleting ur comment, just the opposite...i loved finding out that i'm not alone in my love for over spraying and i myself am a long time fan of CoCo Mademioselle...hope u have a fabulous weekend! xoxo
