I LOVE this product! I have tried every lip primer out there and this is by far, the best. You need very little, just a quick swipe along your lip line, wait a few minutes for it to set (which is critical with any lip primer), and then apply your lipstick. For me, I needed something to keep my lipstick from feathering, and this does it. I don't think my lipstick lasts longer with it, but my lipstick is smoother with it. I don't find it drying at all and I have very dry skin. I can't believe I waited so long to try it. It's an HG for me!

I originally bought this so I could wear my Chanel Rouge Lacque without feathering. It didn't work, it still feathered and I ended up looking like a clown after a few hours.
I don't think it dries my lips, but it does something much worse: it blends itself to whichever lipstick I wear and it turns to some kind of gooey material that sticks to my lips in a uneven and very unflattering way.
The worst part is that it was really expensive!

I don't know about all these bad reviews I'm reading here but my mom and I Iove it. I scrub lips the night before I use it and it doesn't dry out my lips and helps lipstick last a long time. I love it except the packaging but I would definitely buy again.

I am actually shocked to see the bad reviews of this product. This is the best lip primer I have found. I don't find it to be drying at all, it keeps the lipstick on almost all day and prevents feathering. I don't go without it!

Utterly worthless. Did nothing to prevent or even ease feathering, dried-out my,lips, added zero time to my lipstick's longevity and is a complete waste of $20 bucks.

This Lip Insurance was a part of a lip gift set which included lipstick, lip gloss, and a makeup bag. Unfortunately, I have tried to use this many times but I do not think it does anything with keeping lipsticks or lip products on any longer than without this primer. And when I did try to wipe off my lipstick, it was hard to wipe off without it looking weirdly dry on my lips.. It doesn't prevent fading of lip products but somehow it is hard to remove?? IDK I will not buy this alone thats for sure.

Hated it, dried out my lips horribly and actually made the product last a shorter amount of time. It was so drying it caused the lip stick to feather after an hour! and when I put my trusty balm over top it became horribly scummy. It was like having elmers glue on my lips. Disgusting and not a good look. It was promptly returned.

This went right back to the store. I felt as if I'd just walked the Sahara, my lips were so dry. It felt disgusting on my lips and looked awful no matter what color gloss or lipstick I used.

I don't know where I read that this was a good idea to use, but I should have checked MUA first. I've used this for the past few weeks and it's OK under glosses, but dries my lips out far too much with anything else. Even under the glosses it sometimes balls up and makes little gross lumps of gloss. With lipsticks, I'm reaching for the lip balm an hour after I put it on.
On the plus side, it does what it says it does--your lipstick will last a lot longer with this. But I don't know if that's worth the dried out feeling. I'll keep experimenting to see what this works the best with but I have a feeling I won't be buying it again.

I am always getting sucked into Too Faced products by the packaging then disappointed once I actually use the product. This lip primer is another product that fails to deliver.It did not act as a primer on my lips and in fact, dried out my lips.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Other, Tan, Warm Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
Just awful. I can't stand the way it feels on my lips and then add the fact that it changes the appearance of lipsticks well that adds up to an epic fail from me. I'm returning this and trying Urban Decay's or Guerlain's instead.

unless i buy a more expensive brand, lipstick NEVER stays on me until i found this! i just put a small amount on my lips and after it dries you would never notice it, then apply lipstick and it stays on for hours. only 2 problems: the packaing, i wish Too faced would have made this like the made the shadow insurance - once it starts to run out theres no way to get it out of the tube! secondly, my lips did start to feel dry after a while (although this could also have been the lipstick)

This product sucks any and all moisture out of my lips. I am disappointed with this product. I was looking for something to stop my lipstick from feathering, and maybe add a little staying power. It did neither. I would not recommend this lip primer.

This is an Ok product. It holds lipstick into place for a few hours (for a red lipstick more than five-seven eating included), but unfortunately it is a bit mattifying and dries out lips.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Hazel
I love this product. Sometimes it is a bit drying, but it smoothes out my lips and they feel like velvet. Holds lipstick all day!

For me, this did help to hold my lip color in place and make it more vibrant. However, I've also noticed that it doesn't help prevent feathering and it dries the crap out of my lips. I was looking for an alternative to MAC's Prep and Primer for lips because I use so much of it and have to buy 2 or 3 a month. I'm taking this back to Sephora.

Agree with not so good reviews in here but here is the trick: don't use it directly over your lips, instead of that, just pat it on them with your ring finger only a few touch ups and your lips will be ready to wear your gloss/lipstick.
Anyway, it's smoothy but not yet moisturizing. It will dry your lips for sure, so there goes another trick: put a thin layer of your favourite lip balm first and wait a few minutes to pat on lip insurance. I personally use Elizabeth Arden's 8 hours specially on the inside line of my lower lip where I get skins and it works amazingly well. Won't repurchase however due to it's drying effect despite long lasting results.

Very cute packaging. Without checking out reviews on here I bought it on a whim because of the packaging. (I'm a sucker for esthetics). I sort of needed a lip primer because my lips are always flaky and unexfoliated so my lips always have a couple dead skin patches and so the promise of smoother lip makeup application and long wear seemed like a dream. I almost feel like this product is a gimmick. This did nothing for the longevity of my lipstick and the unevenness was still there. I also notice time and time again that this product dries out my lips like no other. UGH. terrible product. Only give it a 1 for the cute, simple, robin blue container.

I picked this up on a whim because it was reduced to £8 on the ASOS website and I just put it in the basket along with a larger order because I had a discount. It's described as a 'smoothing, anti-feathering lip primer' and I was attracted because I thought that it might be an easy (and lazy) alternative to going out and buying a lip-liner for the different shades of lipstick I'm slowly amassing (new lipstick convert :D). I honestly haven't found that it much fulfils its anti-feathering promises. Whenever I wear lipstick over it without liner it feathers just as crazily as it would with no primer at all. Having said that, it definitely does create a smooth surface for the lipstick to glide over, and provided there isn't TOO much messy eating/drinking/kissing going on, it anchors colour there quite well. With lipgloss it's a bit more useful, and they tend to go on a little less sheer so that the colour pops more, which, for me, is good. But for £14.50 (it's retailing price at Boots.com and others) it just isn't worth it for me and I wouldn't buy again. It is a good primer though, and if your cosmetics budget is unlimited then go for it - there are just better things I could spend my money on.

I bought this product because I needed something to help my existing lipsticks and glosses retain more staying power. The SA at my local Ulta store seemed to have no idea what to recommend for this stated need.
I found this item in the store on my own, and when I asked the SA if this would work, she shrugged and said, "Guess so." Well, she apparently guessed wrong.
This product does feel pleasant when applied to the lips, smoothing but not moisturizing, if that makes sense. However, this did nothing to help my lip color stay put. It seemed to wear off just as easily as if I had used nothing -- I expected some payoff at least.
At least I was able to return this to the store and get a refund -- but I would not recommend purchasing and I will not rebuy this product again. It's too bad because I really like other products by Too Faced.
