One of my mother’s nicknames for me is ‘pouty lips’ because they are quite full and I sulk a lot.
I never though of this as an asset until everyone starting pumping up their lips left, right and centre. Most of the pumpee’s I’ve seen look very duck like. I concur that god gave you what he gave you for a reason.
Anyway, as full as my lips may be, they are terribly dry most of the time. I’ve tried a few lip primers in my time – waste of time, but was intrigued enough to waste some more money of this Coffret D’or Lip Base Essence:
The exchange rate is SO bad at the moment.
Coffret D’or isn’t really ding it for me. They have some nice things but its not a brand I run to.
Treatment Lip Base prevents dry and rough lips, and adds a long-lasting gloss that seems to come from deep within the lips.
Adds a subtle pink hue to lips and improves lipstick adhesion and color lasting properties.
Can be used as a base under lipstick or as a gloss over lipstick.
It feels to me like a clear, pink gloss. Soft, shiny, fairly light. Still though it is glossy and it doesn’t sink in that quickly. In an ideal world, I want a lip base thats moisturizing and helps lip colour last.
This feels glossy. It will not make your lipstick stick for longer (it didn’t with mine) and it sheered the colour out.
Under another gloss it just adds…more gloss.
It’s not a bad product and my lips did feel soft afterwards. I’m just not buying it as a real lip base, more of a lip gloss with treatment properties?
Verdict: If this was pasta it would be penne with plain tomato sauce.
