My days are long when I’m at work so my makeup needs to last as long as possible. I’m at work by 7:30 AM and after teaching all day I’m often having things to do after work my goal is to not look like a mess with half worn off makeup by 10 hours later. So I always wear a primer under my foundation and I’m always looking to try new ones just because there are so many out there! The one I’ve been using the past few weeks is the Too Faced Hangover Primer.
Too Faced describes it as:
Cure your next beauty hangover with Hangover, a revolutionary makeup primer that’s infused with coconut water, a probiotic-based ingredient, and skin revivers which work together to boost skin’s radiance, promote elasticity, and help hydrate while locking down makeup for fresher, longer, and more flawless wear. Too Faced harnessed the science of hydration to create a creamy, penetrating primer that acts like an energy drink for the skin by replenishing moisture levels. It can be worn alone for a dewy, healthy looking finish, or under bronzers, foundations, and powders to create the perfect canvas.
What I worried about when I first got it was will the coconut smell be overpowering? I mean, I love coconut but I don’t necessarily want my face to smell like it or like sunscreen. But as it turns out the coconut scent is so light and at times even hard to pick up on. In fact, I’d actually like a stronger coconut scent just for something refreshing! I wasn’t sure if it was just me. I seriously pumped some in to my hand for use and sniffed really hard but can only get the faintest of coconut smells.
Nevertheless, I’ve really been liking this primer. It’s lightweight and although it looks like a cream it’s very thin and sinks in quickly so it never feels like it’s sitting on my skin. I love the packaging as the pump is so convenient and easy to use. I definitely think this has helped prolong the longevity of my makeup now that I’m back to my long days. I would definitely repurchase it!
