I’ve tried both the chocolate PB and these Caramel ones, and while they are both good, these are definitely my favorite! Like another reviewer said, they are a bit dry, so I have them with coffee/water/etc... In a really weird way, I almost like that they’re a bit on the dry side because it keeps me from eating way too many too fast haha
I’m a big wine fanatic- red, white, dry, sweet (but not overly sweet)- I love and drink them all, depending on my mood, the food, the weather, etc.. I randomly picked this up (in the cans, first) on my way to the beach one day and wasn’t expecting to like it as much as I did. I’ve bought a few bottles since then. The fruity taste and light carbonation make this the perfect drink for summer sipping, parties, sangria, etc.. I typically loathe moscato, which oddly enough is one of the wines used in this. However, I think the Grenache and added carbonation must help in keeping this from being cloyingly sweet. Great for people who don’t like “typical” wines as well as (most of) those who do.
Ive tried a few different drugstore lash primers as well as Clinique’s and this one is the best. The formula is perfect (not too wet, not too dry) and it really makes a difference no matter which mascara I use over top of it. I usually do one eye at a time because I’ve found that I get the best results when applying my mascara over this while it’s still somewhat “wet.”

These are great! Finish and Formula wise, I’ve only tried NYX’s soft matte lip creams (stayed sticky, couldn’t achieve an even finish and quickly got “yucky” around the inside of my lips). These are so much easier to apply and the finish is amazing and natural! Some tips that have definitely helped me: prior to application, I use a toothbrush to exfoliate my lips (also, ELF’s sugar lip exfoliater thing is cheap and it works!). After that I apply some regular old Vaseline to my lips. I let that sit while I do the rest of my makeup and then I wipe off any excess before applying this. I start with the center of my bottom lip and swipe the applicator outward on each side. Then I do one more quick swipe from one corner to the other and lightly pat any harsh lines/edges with my finger to smooth them out. For my top lip I start in the center and basically do a windshield wiping motion on each side. Then I leave my mouth open for a minute or so to let the product dry. NEVER press your lips together while this product is wet- It simply does not work. If your lips feel really dry, you can apply the *lightest* amount of lip balm to any dry areas with your finger. Also, for a few of these I have to apply the lightest amount of foundation to my lips immediately before applying this, otherwise the color looks completely different on and it’s NOT at all flattering lol
I wanted this to work so badly. I made sure to exfoliate beforehand and tried it with a couple different water based moisturizers and the Pro Filt’r primer. Applied it with a flat top brush, RT’s expert face brush, UD’s optics blurring brush, Tarte’s bamboo foundation brush, beauty blender, fingers.. (you get the point lol).., but I couldn’t get that flawless finish that everyone who loves this talks about :( Also, I did make sure to work section by section because this stuff sets quickly. For reference, I’m 28 and have combination skin. I don’t have much to cover up, just looking to smooth even out my skin tone. Unfortunately this foundation made me self conscious about the pores next to my nose for the first time in my life! :’( I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older or what (SIGH), but the foundation just sat around my pores like nothing I’ve ever seen before. As far as the rest of my face goes, you could very clearly see the foundation just sitting on top of my skin. Ended up giving up and returning it after a couple weeks as it just didn’t work for me.

Decided to try this after Urban Decay changed the formula of their Primer Potion and I'm glad I did. I was initially a little wary of the packaging because with some squeeze tubes it can be difficult to control the amount of product that comes out... ahem, Dr. Brandt...🙄 However, that is not the case with this. A little goes a long way and I imagine the squeeze tube is more hygienic for those concerned with that. Unlike some eye primers that are thicker, colored, and therefore may only work for certain skin tones, the consistency of this one is thinner and the color is sheer, if even that. It does a great job at blurring and creating a smooth base and is virtually invisible once blended into the skin. I'm also thinking that with the squeeze tube type packaging, the actual formula will probably last longer (consistency-wise) compared to those with wands, since you're not continually pumping air in and out of the tube. It gets the job done, and, for the small amount needed per use I imagine it will last me a pretty long time.
Love this product and the cute packaging... well, that is until the twist top stopped closing all the way and opened up in my purse 🤦🏼♀️ I should mention that I've had the same one since January so it's made it through a good 9 months of semi-regular use. Didn't have any issues with the top staying on until last week when i reached into my makeup bag and immediately felt my hand and all my makeup covered in greasy balm 😣. Had to take off a star for that one "flaw"
