Urban Decay Lip Primer Potion Review

I can't be the only one alive that runs across a shade of lipstick or gloss that just doesn't apply correctly. I find that darker shades are incredibly difficult to apply sometimes and end up feathering, or smudging, or just ending up everywhere around my mouth just not on my lips. On these days I seriously need something to prep my lips to accept bolder shades something that creates a barrier before my slightly damp lips and the darker shade of lippie I'm applying. Something that helps the application to go smoother.

In comes Urban Decay Lip Primer Potion to save the day!

Loves it!

Although Urban Decay Lip Primer Potion is meant as a primer to allow lipstick to stay around a little longer without fading or feathering I think the true joy of the product is how it aids in application. Prepping lips prior to with this primer will allow for a smoother, even finish. I find it's especially helpful for darker shades which always apply very messy for me.

The formula is a soft, smooth, velvet finish which doesn't dry lips out but builds an invisible barrier that sets the foundation for lipstick. The formula also has a moisturizing blend of vitamins and an SPF 15.

With lipstick I noticed a few more hours of wear however with gloss I didn't notice too much difference from my normal wear. Truly for me the real joy of the product is as I mentioned above, easy of application for bolder, darker shades of lipstick. The product also manages to slightly "white" out pigmented lips to allow colors to be truer.

I'm really loving this at the moment and think it's rather an ingenious product. I haven't really been privy to many lip primers in the past but this will happily become part of my daily makeup regime.

Loves it!

Total Muse Approval for purchase.

Works a treat and keeps my lipstick wearing long and fresh all day plus makes application a snap!

I need this primer in my life. I refuse to wear lip liner so this can help me out. Sometimes colors settle in the lines of my lips. Urban Decay here I come. Lol

I was wondering about how this product would work & compare to the slew of new primers- I should have known it would be great. I love bright, bold lipsticks but like you, they always travel on me. To be honest here, I'm a little lazy about using a lip brush even though I know it helps. I'm definitely going to check this out next time I'm in Sephora!

same prob here. I get feathering if I wear a dark shade and this should do the trick. Also intensifies color slightly :-D

oh jess I'm the same way I never use a lip brush....I suck at application with one so I don't bother. Honestly I never considered priming with a lip primer prior to applying but this works a treat particularly on darker lipsticks :-D

Do you still need to wear a lip liner with this?

nope anonymous

it works to keep lipstick from bleeding and feathering along the lip line so a lipliner is optional!
