Winky Lux whipped cream primer review

Makeup Reviews, Reviews

Ciao!

So I tend to keep an eye out for gimmicky products. I mean, what do I want more: a product that looks cool or a product that works? Sometimes both, but I’m mostly looking for things that do their job.

That’s why I was incredibly skeptical of this product. I’d checked it out on the website before I received it as PR and was really surprised that so many people liked this product. After I got it, it took me forever to test it out because primer isn’t something I wear when I’m trying to get my makeup done quick and I was testing out two other primers at the time.

Here’s the thing about Winky Lux: they boast that their prices are affordable, when in reality they’re sort of a middle ground between brands like Colourpop and brands like Too Faced. The prices are actually quite similar to brands like Covergirl or L’oreal- brands that were once cheap but are now drastically raising their prices. Β At $19, it was the cheapest in my collection featuring the Hourglass mineral veil primer ($19/3 oz or $54/1.01oz), the Julep illuminating and mattifying primers ($28/1 oz), and my all time favorite BECCA first light priming filter ($38/30ml).

However, $19 still isn’t exactly cheap, so how does this stack up?

Test drive: Glossier priming moisturizer

Reviews, Test Drive

Ciao!

So a few weeks ago, I tested out the priming moisturizer by Glossier because I received a sample of it with my most recent glossier post.

However, as I sat down to write this post, I realized I didn’t have my camera with me that had all of my photos on it for this post.

Nice job me.

Luckily I had written down some notes about what I thought, so I was still able to write the review, but this post is a few weeks later than I expected. Keep reading to hear my thoughts on yet another product from this super hyped brand!
