So we all know what a face primer is and its purpose already, but how about lip primers? I'm quite sure this is not a popular product that is included in ladies' makeup kit and I don't even know if anyone's ever heard of it too.
Well, lip primers are pretty much like face primers when it comes to its purpose. Lip primers act as a foundation for the lips and are applied on the lips before putting on your favorite lip gloss or lipstick. There should also be no worries about it feeling "greasy" on the lips because it typically is matte and clear (or neutral shade) and like a face foundation, it serves the purpose of giving the lips a smoother appearance and making your lip gloss or lipstick last longer on your lips.
Lip primers come in two forms; tube and pencil type and some also come with other benefits like sunscreen protection, moisturizer, vitamins A, C and E. However, lip primers are not exactly meant to be worn alone, just apply it on your lips and let it dry for a few seconds before putting on your lip liner, lipstick or lip gloss.
Some may not consider wearing a lip primer, but I think it's worth a try.
