  • "It feels a little weird when you first put it on, but this is the first lip primer I have tried. I wasn't expecting the thick milky texture of it. Besides that, I absolutely love it! I love the Too Faced Melted Matte lipsticks but they dry my lips out so much throughout the day. If I apply this primer before my matte lipstick it keeps my lips soft and moisturized all day. I won't put on any matte lipstick without using this first." in 10 reviews

I also love this product. It moisturizes the lips perfectly. It was my first time trying this product. I absolutely love it. I use it a few times a week. I brought it from online tarte cosmetics for $16 bucks.

I am not entirely sure I am using this primer correctly! I used it once before a lipstick and it made my lipstick look extremely Matte which isn’t what I wanted! I believed this was to make your lipstick look smoother and better. I do use it sometimes at night till morning and my lips do feel smoother.

I really like this lip primer. So far I've tried it under Tarte's creamy matte lip paints, quick dry matte lip paints, and glossy lip paints. I've also tried it under other brands of liquid lipsticks as well as under some of my creamy lipsticks.

After exfoliating my lips, I apply just a tiny amount to my fingertip and rub it over the lips. I wait for it to completely dry (it dries pretty quickly) and then I apply my lip color.

When I first tried this primer, I didn't care for it. I stuck it in my cabinet, figuring it was a dud. A couple of weeks ago I decided to try it again, and this time I realized what I'd been doing wrong. I was applying way too much and I was taking too long to spread it over the lips, which left it looking patchy and made my lips look like they were covered in gunk. It didn't look nice under my liquid lipsticks at all. I also wasn't exfoliating like I should have been.

Now, I'm so happy I tried it again! It's honestly the best thing ever! It keeps my matte liquid lipsticks from drying my lips out and making them look parched. It also makes my creamy and glossy lip colors last throughout the workday without touch-ups. I use it every day, and I will continue to use it every time I apply lip color!

This product was horrible. It made my lips EXTREMELY dry and chapped after one use. I would NOT recommend this to anyone. Hopefully they have removed it from their line of products! NEGATIVE 👎🏽 I WOULD GIVE IT A ZERO IF I COULD.

First time I bought this, I disliked it. But I hadn't read directions on how to use it. After reading you have to let it set before applying other lip product over it, I liked it a little. This is not a holy grail. But I'm glad I gave it a second chance rather than saying it sucked knowing I didn't use it correctly in the first place. I barely use lip primers. But this is a nice one to leave in a drawer when I need it.

I bought this product on a whim from Tarte's website because it was on sale. I didn't really have any expectations for it, was mostly just curious. Well, I was pleasantly surprised. I really do think this primer helps with the longevity of lipsticks. It's lightweight and doesn't dry out my lips (though it's not super moisturizing, either). I think it gives a nice base for color to cling to. I definitely notice a difference in the wear of my lip products when I use this. I will repurchase.

my first tarte purchase and it was complete trash. oops i meant miss. but really it was trash. Not worth the price to product ratio at all I think it is very overpriced. I have super chapped lips and all this did was make it more dry and have a dusty white residue on my lips. not cute. not to mention the shipping took a month to get to my house.

As someone with very dry lips, this particular lip primer is a lifesaver! Not only does it keep my lipstick color looking great after quite a few hours, it also prevents my lips from cracking and making the lipstick look very unevenly applied. This primer is also especially useful on the lips before applying very drying or matteifying lipsticks.
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! This product helps lipstick go on smoother and looks better. The cutest package ever! This is my first time buying it. I got it at Sephora but you can also get it at Ulta I believe. I would recommend this product!

I am always using Chapstick and lip treatment products because my lips are always so chapped! How do you guys feel about this product? Has it hydrated and softened your dry, cracked lips?

Does this allow for putting colors (matte or satin) over it? Is the purpose to increase longevity of color or reduce dryness?
