When it comes to lip primers there is only one I go back to repeatedly. I've been using this primer for so long I forgot how I even caught wind of its existence. My lips are consistently chapped year round, so when I say this makes a difference... it makes a difference! I love this primer because it helps make my lip smooth even when my lips are chapped. I also find it keeps my lipstick on longer then any other lip primer i've tried. Sometimes I use this alone just because I know it prevents my lips to chap. I love this stuff!
