NYX COSMETICS HONEY DEW ME UP PRIMER: REVIEW, PHOTOS & SWATCHES

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

The NYX Cosmetics Honey Dew Me Up Primer ($17.00 for 0.776 fl.oz./22 m.) is a lightweight primer infused with honey, gold flecks and collagen. It's formulated to neutralize the appearance of discoloration and redness, while providing moisture to the skin.It primes and preps the face for the application of makeup.

It has many beneficial ingredients for the skin. A few of those lovely ingredients are Honey which is a natural antiseptic, collagen which strengthens the skin and the gold flecks which help increase skin radiance. The Honey Dew Me Up Primer also contain Hyaluronic Acid, which helps the skin to absorb and retain moisture. Portulaca which is anti-inflammatory and calming and Allantoin, which is very soothing and helps increase water absorption and smoothness to the skin.

It does contain alchohol though, but I didn't find it to be drying on my skin at all. I was a little afraid that it was going to dry out my skin completely, but the other moisturizing ingredients in this primer must be preventing it from doing that. Thank goodness! :-)

The consistency of the Honey Dew Me Up Primer is very thick and quite gooey at first. But when I apply it onto my skin, the consistency changes and it feels like I'm soaking my face in water. I love it! It's a nice, cooling and very refreshing feeling.

It absorbs easily and quickly into the skin. It doesn't feel greasy at all, but it does have that sticky feeling which I'm not the biggest fan of. Be sure to allow the primer to fully sink into the skin for a couple of minutes before applying any makeup on top of it. The stickiness will then be completely gone and the skin feels very smooth and soft. It doesn't have a dewy finish like it claims to have, it just gives the skin a slight sheen, nothing too crazy.

The Honey Dew Me Up Primer comes in a pretty little glass bottle with a rather large spatula inside for an easy application. It's very easy to use and the spatula gives you just the right amount of product. The primer has a light gold, almost clear color which contains pretty gold flecks. The gold flecks doesn't melt into the skin like the rest of the product, so sometimes I end up with a couple of them stuck on my face. I personally don't mind it, but I know some people might be put of by this.

Overall, I really like the Honey Dew Me Up Primer from NYX Cosmetics. I have a lot of redness happening on my face, especially around my cheek area. I found this primer to be very calming and soothing on my skin. It makes my skin look more even and less red afterwards, which I really like. It also makes my foundation go on easier and a lot smoother too. It's a great primer for people with dry skin, because it feels nice and very hydrating on the skin. It has a very fresh, mild and clean scent, which isn't too overwhelming.

NYX Cosmetics is typically a very budget friendly brand, so I'm quite surprised by the high prize tag. It might not look like you are getting a lot of product for the price, but a little goes a long way with this primer. It's definitely going to last you a while! :-)

  2. I think the idea is that honey is anti-inflammatory thus reducing redness. I've been curious about this.
