HAPPY MONDAY GORGEOUS READERS!
First let me apologize for the week long technical glitch. There are quite a few problems with the html and I'm trying to fix it as well as looking into something completely new for the blog. I want to thank all of my 2300+ members for sticking with VLV. I know I mentioned this before about eBlogger removing my Google Friend Connect when they decided to remove the app for non-bloggers and unfortunately my domain registration somehow made them think I was no longer a blogger. If you don't see the friend connect app please don't worry because it shows up on my dashboard member list and I'm following all of you back. In the meantime feel free to follow my Google+ page for your convenience until I sort everything out. Thanks! Now back to business. Today's review is for NYX Honey Dew Me Up primer and serum.
Inspired by honey's golden glow, we developed a primer that neutralizes the appearance of discoloration and redness. NYX Honey Dew Me Up Skin Serum & Primer has innovative light reflective gold flecks which create a luminous look that will help keep your skin looking radiant all day. A gel primer infused with honey, gold and collagen. Apply to clean moisturized face. Wait 2-5 minutes for product to set completely before applying makeup.
Formula: This serum has an airy gel-like consistency without any sticky residue. The scent is subtle and pleasantly floral. It absorbs quickly without flaking when used under foundation. As for the gold flecks they are barely worth mentioning because they don't show up on the face. I was really excited about Honey Dew when it first launched then sold out in a heartbeat, but for the life of me I can't really see what it does to my skin. It's not a bad product per se---rather I'm not experiencing results of any kind. As a primer it really doesn't smooth out the skin as a traditional primer would instead it seems to be more of a moisture booster before you apply moisturizer. As for the long term promises the product makes I would have to use it daily for months to confirm if there's any truth regarding this. But with the bottle being about the size of your typical eye cream I don't see that as being economically feasible. The serum container is rather small and empties out in less than two weeks and that's only if you use it sparingly. The concept of it all sounds good but it fails short in several ways. The best quality for Honey Dew Me Up is that it's a nice little moisturizer. Have you tried this? What are your thoughts? Stay Beautiful! XOXO
