So I am super late with this one but better late than never, right? I've actually been holding off on this review because I'm trying to finish using one product before I begin using another. Also, it takes me a few months to try a product before I really know whether I like it or not. There are so products that are really great and make a wonderful first impression, but I try to wait a bit and see how my acne likes the product! Ha! So here we go!
Too Faced Hangover Primer has been everywhere. As soon as it was released earlier this year, I feel like everyone was buying it and instantly writing reviews. So I was on the fence about trying it. Is it worth the hype? After using this primer for 2 months now, I have to say that it is worth the money and hype.
This primer is infused with one of my fave things on Earth...coconut water. Coconut water is known to hydrate the skin. (I try to drink it everyday and love using coconut oil as a lotion)
Here's what they promise...
100% said makeup went one smoother, 100% said makeup looked more radiant, 100% said skin looked more hydrated, 100% said their skin had the appearance of a full night's rest. This primer doesn't contain any parabens, sulfates, or phthalates. This all sounds good right?
Well after using for 2 months, I must say...I agree with all claims. My skin definitely felt more hydrated after using and it helped my makeup last over 14 hours. As soon as you apply the primer to your skin, you can instantly smell the scent of coconut which I LOVE. The actually consistency is thinner than I was expecting. I guess since it promises so much hydration, I was expecting the primer to apply like a thick moisturizer. Soooo not the case. The primer is lightweight, goes on the skin like water, consistency is thin, and the skin instantly looks hydrated. My skin also looked brighter! I used this primer with my Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, BareMinerals Complexion Rescue, Tarte Amazonian Clay, and Make Up Forever HD Foundation and it worked the same for all foundations. I also used my BareMinerals powder foundation and it was just the same! This gem doesn't leave any residue, blends well into my face when I apply with my fingers, and won't compete with your foundation.
Two other things I love? Sometimes in the morning, I am in a rush and have to apply makeup product after product without allowing for drying time in between. This primer is fast absorbing and as soon as I apply, I can instantly apply my foundation. No waiting time! The second thing I love? The pump! This primer has a pump so it's sooo easy to get out. The pump is also very well made and doesn't clog. It's the thing I am most happy with! (It's the small things to me!)
I actually feel like this product is more of a moisturizer to me than a primer! This is a fact that I love!
