Primers serve as a means to keep all types of makeup in place. Face, lip, eyelid, eyelash, nail, and hair primers. Hair primers I have yet to delve into. I am a long time disciple of Urban Decay’s Primer Potion for my eyeshadow. I simply have not found another product to rival it.
We live in a world of endless options for primers, so finding ones that stand out and are actually a necessity is difficult to say the least. In one of my recent posts I featured the Urban Decay Ultimate Ozone Primer Pencil. After using this for over a month now, I would find it difficult to be without this product after discovering all of its convenient uses.
This is truly a multipurpose wonder! It is completely clear, with a smooth and slightly tacky application. It makes for a great lip primer, by keeping gloss and lipstick from fading and bleeding. I love to use this lightly when wearing my Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipstick. It helps it to stay a bit longer. The pencil will clean up any mascara or eyeliner mistakes. The most exciting use for this however, is as an eyeliner primer. I swipe it lightly along my lash line and it makes my already long wearing Bobbi Brown gel liner even more long wearing! I do not have to worry about my eyeliner pretty much the entire day. It is the same concept as keeping your lipstick from bleeding when you think about it.
The only negative is that it does have to be sharpened, which is not what I mind so much as the soft tip tends to get wasted a bit. Just sharpen slow and lightly, and you are good to go. I take this pencil with me everywhere now. This is my definition of a HG product!
