Pop Beauty Face Magnet and Lip Magnet Primer Reviews!

POP Beauty was kind enough to give me a couple of their products to try out, one being the Face Magnet Primer and the other being the Lip Magnet Lip Primer. First of all they sent them in the cutest POP Beauty bag.



 



First i'll start off with the--
Face Magnet Face Primer- This is hands down one of my favorite primers ever. My "Holy Grail" Primer is the Napoleon Perdis Auto-Pilot...but it's 50$. So I can't always just run to the store and grab it when I run out.

This primer is sold at Ulta, and as far as I can tell..I think it's just ULTA that carries it in the states, I don't believe Sephora does, but I could be wrong. I'm pretty sure, this line is based out the U.K. But this primer is just as good, if not, better then my Napoleon Perdis one and the price is light years better. It's 26.00, which is not bad at all for a high end primer. I know the Smashbox, Too faced, and I think Stila are around 35.

Pop Beauty says that this primer is supposed to "work as a magnet to lock in your face make-up all day," and I have to agree. It really works wonderfully at keeping your make up in place, and looking bright and beautiful all day, making your make up and skin look FLAWLESS.

I like this primers texture as well. I'm not a huge fan of your average silicone based primer. I don't "hate" them, but I prefer more of a lotion feel which this one and the Napoleon Perdis both are. It's thicker, but it's still light, and it soaks into your skin really quickly. It's not sticky, or something that will weigh you down and feel heavy on your face. I have really oily skin, so it didn't make me more oily, or shiny, or anything like that. It's water based and oil-free, and it does help out with oil-control. It also helps with redness, minimizing pores, and making your skin extra smoothe.

This primer is not just great for keeping your make-up stay on but it has a lot of skin benefits as well. It has licorice root in it, which is supposed to be really good for dry/cracked skin, or skin that has a lot of redness, or skin that gets irritated easily. So it actually helps heal the skin. It's also really good for those with Eczema. So if you are someone who has eczema, and your having a hard time finding a primer, this one will be perfect. Anything with licorice root is awesome for your skin because it's so soothing.

Another ingredient in it that I thought was cool, is that it has caffeine in it. My skin NEEDS this pick me up in the morning. It's basically a shot of espresso for your face. It wakes it up, plumps it, brightens, firms, and makes it look more youthful and revitalized. HUGE FAN OF THAT.

And lastly, i've tried it with basically every type of foundation. It works amazingly for liquids, pressed powders, and loose powders. I've been using this primer for almost 3 weeks, and I love it. I definitely recommend it.

NOW FOR THE LIP PRIMER.


It is a light beige color, with a clear circle in the middle.(Sorry for the bad pic! It didn't look so bright on my camera! :(    )

Lip Magnet Primer-
This one retails for 15.00 and again, you can get it on the pop beauty website or at Ulta. I have never used a lip primer before, so I don't really have anything to compare it with, so  bare with me!

One thing I did like about it though is that it's really nourishing and makes your lips superrrrrrrrr soft, and that's probably because it has vitamins A&E in it. The only other ingredient that I recognized was Omega oils, and that is supposed to be good for plumping the lips. WHICH I honestly didn't see a huge difference. It really didn't make mine look that much fuller. So it wasn't a drastic difference for me. But it does work well for filling in those lines in your lips, or if they are cracked, it will fill that in as well.

It does say it's supposed to prevent feathering in lipsticks and glosses, and plump the lips. Like I said..didn't really plump mine, but it did help with preventing my lipstick from getting feathered or weird looking through out the day. It did make it last a little bit longer, then it would without a primer as well.
   
Something I disliked though, is the smell. IT SMELLS TERRIBLE. Once you put a gloss or lipstick over, it's fine and you can't smell it anymore. But first applying it, it's horrible.

I like this product, but i'm not CRAZY about it like I am the face primer. As soon as that runs out, I am totallllllly getting another. But I didn't like this enough to buy it again, and I am an unsure if I would recommend it. Maybe because it is my first lip primer, so I don't have anything to compare it too. But i'm not disappointed with it. I'm just not in love.

Anyways, I hope you all enjoyed this review! PLEASE let me know if you have tried this brand, and your opinions on it! Also U.K people, is this a big brand where you live? I'm curious.

I hope you all are having a wonderful day:)

Love,
Me!

I've actually not ever heard of a lip primer before this post! I like the concept of it though, especially as quite a few of my lipsticks do tend to feather. What I usually do is just blot and/or rub the product into my lips. Glad to hear that the face primer was a big hit with you :) I don't usually wear primer, the only one I've tried is this local branded one which apparently is quite similar to the Napoleon one (same ingredients or something), but I didn't notice a huge difference to the staying power of my foundation. Also, you look gorgeous in that last photo! :)
