I know I’ve been gone for a little bit but I’ve been exhausted!! It takes me an hour + a half to get to work each morning and about a full 2 hours to get home!! My days are long + exhausting + sometimes I just need to rest so I hope you all understand!
So, this post (+ a few others coming up) are way over due but better later than never right?? So I purchased the NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer off of the NYX website. I tend to get all giddy and sparkly eyed when I see new items so I had to try it out! The primer cost $17 which I thought was a bit much but of course, I decided to buy it any way hahaha. Now, on to what I thought + the post I left on the NYX site.
When I received my package, I was super excited and couldn’t wait to try this product. Right away I was put off by the spatula. That didn’t seem very sanitary to me. To explain my impression further, let me show you what I posted on the NYX website…
Not as geat as I was expecting…
I will post on my blog with more detail but, this primer just is not for me! I thought it would be amazing because soooo many NYX products are. This formula doesn’t seem to be any different when it comes to basic priming. The gold flakes are a bit random and not small enough to illuminate the skin. The product feels wet and sticky to me and makes my combo/oily skin a wee bit unhappy. Also, the packaging would be so much better in a pump form…much more sanitary. All in all this product has the potential to be great but I just don’t think it’s there yet.
- Smells Great
- Cons – Beauty
- Poor Texture,
- Not Effective
- I do not recommend this product.
- CURRENT THOUGHTS
- I decided to try this product again after watching other reviews + talking to a few people + we agree that this product is much better as a serum and not a primer! When I use the product this way, I can actually see benefits. I first cleanse my face, exfoliate, then tone. After I tone my skin, the Honey Dew Me Up seeps into the skin must better + does not leave that sticky + wet feeling. After about a week my skin looked much healthier + plump. I feel like the gold in the product is still pointless but the ingredients are rather nice if used the right way. I really feel this product should be repackaged + marketed as a serum because it’s got great potential!!
- Overall I am starting to like this product since using it the new way. Hopefully NYX will see that this is a much better product when used a serum! I hope you guys found this post helpful and I will chat with you again soon!
- Until Next Time…
