Gabriel Lip Primer

I am not affiliated with this company. This item was sent to me for review purposes only. My opinion is completely honest no matter how I receive any items mentioned on this blog. 

Another new product from Gabriel Cosmetics that I got to try out is their new Lip Primer.  Since natural lipsticks and glosses don't last as long as other mainstream lippies, this was interesting to test out. 

I applied it with my finger and accidentally found another use for this item.  You don't want to apply too much because it can blend with your lip product instead of just acting as a primer.  If you have a lippie that is too dark or too bold for you, then I suggest you try it out to help mute the color to make it more wearable. 

So how about as a primer?  I applied a lot less of the product with my fingertip so it looked like a very faint amount of powder was on my lips.  You do not want to see any opaque primer, just a thin sheer layer.  It should feel dry to the touch.  Then you apply your lip product.  As a lip primer, I am impressed.  I applied a lipstick at 9am, kissed my boyfriend goodbye, went to work, ate a snack and my day continued on and I still had lipstick on well past 12:30-1pm.  This is a natural lipstick lasting well over 3-4 hours, depending on the shade. This makes for a lot less reapplication of your natural lip product throughout the day. I tried it with a Gabriel lipstick and other natural brands of lipstick and it successfully worked with them all as long as I didn't apply too much of the primer.

This primer retails for $13.55.  It is gluten free and vegan, animal friendly and eco-friendly.   My only issue is that it looks fairly similar to the eye primer so I need to keep them apart to make sure I don't grab the wrong one.
