Best Lip Primers to Prevent Feathering

You already know how much I love makeup primers and today I’m telling you about the Best Lip Primers to prevent feathering of lipsticks. As much as I love foundation primers, I also like using lip primers.

I believe that lipstick is the makeup that is often used by most women. If you will look at my makeup collection, you will find that around half of my stash is composed of lipsticks.

That being said, most (if not all) of us want our lipsticks to be perfect when applied. It wouldn’t look good if it transfers, feathers or bleeds, settles on lip lines or wrinkles. It also would be great if our lip color would last longer and not dry out our lips.

With the help of a good lip primer, we can achieve perfection. Well, of course, you still need to use a good lipstick. The primer will just help it be more beautiful and stay on the lips longer.

I’ve put together this list so you can have an idea on what lip primers to get.

If you’re wondering why I haven’t been posting for the last few days, it’s because I have injured my left hand last weekend. I found it really painful to type on my keyboard. I couldn’t type using just my right hand and this is the reason why I haven’t been able to post for the past few days. I thought that my hand was already healed last Monday. So I was able to type up my post. But the pain got worse again after that. So I let it rest for 2 days. Now, I’m trying my luck again. I hope the pain will not come back this time. 🙂

Anyways, even with my left hand injury, I couldn’t stop myself from testing out makeup products. It also wasn’t able to stop myself from shopping for new makeup. But I will share that on Saturday instead. For now, I hope this list will be able to help you out.

    I haven’t tried any lip primer before. I didn’t even know that they exist he he ..
    Is the Becca lip primer can be bought locally? or I just purchase that at Sephora?
    This is a helpful tip Ms. Alyssa , Thank you 🙂

    • Hi Hanna! There’s a Becca inside Adora at Greenbelt, but I’m not sure if they have the lip primer. If they do carry it, it’s probably overpriced, lol! Best way to purchase it is from Sephora, then just have it shipped. 🙂
