Too Faced Hangover X Primer – Review

I’ve hankered after this primer for a long time and finally bit the bullet & purchased it. It gets rave reviews from bloggers/Vloggers & I really wanted to see what all the fuss was about. It retails for €32 here in Ireland & for that you get 38g of product.

Claims : When long days of work and late nights of play give you a beauty ‘Hangover’, this is your instant cure. ‘Hangover’ is a revolutionary make up primer infused with coconut water, probiotic based ingredients, and skin revivers that work together to boost skin’s radiance, promote elasticity and help hydrate while locking down make up for fresher, longer and more flawless wear. We harnessed the science of hydration to create a creamy, penetrating primer that acts like an energy drink for the skin by replenishing moisture levels. It can be worn alone for a dewy, healthy looking finish or under bronzers, foundations, and powders to create the perfect canvas. The unique combination of coconut water, probiotic based ingredient and skin reviver’s work together to hydrate and brighten skin, promote skin’s elasticity and tone, soothe and smooth the skin. Get all the priming benefits you love while looking like you received eight hours of sleep and drank your daily dose of H2O.

The packaging on this is quite sleek & pretty. It has a pump dispenser which after the first few pumps (which weren’t great) it dispenses product nicely. You could use 1 pump but I usually use 2 as I skip moisturiser in the morning. (I do use serum though)

It is a light creamy consistency & although they mention Coconut in the description & ingredients I don’t really smell it in it. It just smells kinda fresh but in a very subtle way. I’ll be honest, I didn’t think Too Faced were capable of subtle scents!

I Have to say I find the claims on his one to be mostly true. This is nearly more of a moisturiser than a primer in my opinion. But to be honest I’m kinda over primers in general. Aside from moisturising I just don’t find that they do anything for me. They definitely don’t make my make up last , this one certainly didn’t.

So as a light moisturiser I really enjoy this, it’s the perfect step for me before starting in on foundation & it definitely gives the skin a little bit of luminosity.

Overall I am a happy customer.

Have you tried this? Do you like it? Are you over primers or can you recommend one that actually works, I’d love to know 🙂

  1. I tried this primer & I don’t like the scent b/c it smells like coconuts to me!
    I feel that primers only make my makeup last a little longer than normal, but a setting spray definitely does help my makeup last all day!

    1. Yep I have to agree. I definitely see more longevity in my make up with setting sprays than primers. My fav so far is the Urban Decay All Nighter spray, what’s yours?
      If the smell bothers you definitely DON’T pick up the physicians formula butter bronzer!!!!
