From Hang Over To Hydrated This Primer Is Top Knotch


I don’t know what kind of magic this is but Too Faced just put it in a bottle.  The inconspicuous primer pumps out smelling lightly of the tropics,  attributing to the infused coconut water.  It leaves your skin feeling hydrated and soft because of the ‘skin revivers’ that work together to also boost radiance, and elasticity.  The formula is a milky and creamy substance that at first looks like a moisturizer but acts as a primer to lock down makeup for a long lasting, flawless finish. I love to put this primer around my eyes because I feel like some days that is my biggest problem area and the creasing becomes harsh as the day progresses.  

I’ve been using this primer for about 2 weeks now with no visible side effects.  My skin has stayed clear, redness free and hydrated.  I apply it over the Hydrating Gel from Urban Decay, and I’ve never been happier with how well balanced my skin has reacted.  My makeup is flawless through my whole work day and not nearly as oily as before.  A daily qualm I used to encounter was having to wash my face as soon as I got home from work because of the oil build up.  I could not stand being in my house feeling like I had grease covering my face, but this primer has controlled the oil for the most part.  

I love the scent of coconut so I knew I would be in love with this, not to mention the coconut water was an interesting concept.  The scent to me is not very powerful, and it’s not something that you can smell through out the day.  I really can’t get over the hydration surge this gives me which I’ve come to realize is an important factor to my beauty routine. What I love most about this product is that a little goes a very long way, and it even looks great on my skin alone with no face makeup. I am giving this product 4.5 stars just because it takes veryyyyy long for the formula to dry.  Honestly, I am usually rushing in the morning so having to wait for it to fully dry is kind of a pain, but on days where I have more than 15 minutes to get ready it doesn’t bother me :)
