I got the new Urban Decay lip primer because A) it's supposed to be amazing and 2) I didn't have a lip primer. It's .10oz and $16 at Sephora.
So this product is supposed to:
Fill in lines
Make lip color last for 8hrs.
This set of pictures is Testing out the theory of filling in fine lines, anti feathering, and help cleaning up mistakes.
I will say that it does prevent feathering and helps the lipstick stay in place and helps correct mistakes during application.
This is the true test. I used a lipstick that was just a regular lipstick not matte not extremely creamy. It was Gerard Cosmetics Rodeo Drive. I do like that the lip primer made it look smoother. However as you can see it didn't last 8 hours. Maybe if you didn't eat or drink or let anything touch your mouth it could possible but seeing as how I had to eat that wasn't the case. The 1:48 picture is right after I ate lunch. I drank from a straw and ate popcorn chicken. I re applied my lipstick and didn't eat anything else the rest of the day and at 6pm it was basically all gone. Therefore as far as keeping a regular lipstick on I don't think it's gonna happen. Maybe like a matte lipstick or something you might get longer wear with it.
I do really like this I'm not bashing it and I didn't buy it so that my lipstick would "last 8 hrs" I genuinely wanted a lip primer and I like how this works. It's completely clear and it doesn't feel tacky or roll up or crumble it feels fine a little waxy maybe but nothing bad. If you want a lip primer I would look into it. If you don't feel like you need one or don't want it unless it's less than amazing and keeps you lipstick on all day you may want to do some more research. I think you would get 3-4hrs wear tops out of it.
