Oily Girl Thoughts: Too Faced Hangover Rx Primer

I’ve read so many mixed reviews on this primer, I just had to try it for myself! For some this is a must have and for some this primer is the total opposite!

So what exactly did I think of this product?

When I first applied this product, I noticed that it didn’t dry matte. This didn’t surprise me cause it’s a hydrating primer. For some reason I still hoped it would workout for me. Anyways, I applied my makeup (matte foundation + setting powder) like normal and added some Urban Decay All Nighter Spray. At first, I thought my makeup looked really nice. It looked like skin and it was hydrated and not cakey/dry looking at all.

Sadly, after two hours my face started getting oily in my T-zone. Normally, I can go about 4 hours WITHOUT a primer before my face starts to get oily. After 4 hours with this primer, my makeup looked horrible and greasy.

I think that this is a wonderful option for girls with dry skin because it gives you a really beautiful, hydrated finish. Unfortunately I don’t think it’s the best choice for oily skin. It’s kind of sad because my skin did look really beautiful at first!

Have you tried this primer? Thoughts?

    I tried it and I experienced the same issue. I recommend trying Gimme Good Face by Trust Fund Beauty, it dries on matte and works pretty well.
