3-in-1 Timesaver that works.
Lawless Beauty "Set The Stage Hydrating Priming Serum" is a nice multi-tasking beauty product acting as a serum, moisturizer and primer in one. I was skeptical such claims were too grand, but this product did hydrate, moisturize and prep my skin for long-wearing makeup. It's a gel that glides on and sets fairly quick. It left my skin feeling smooth, matte and protected throughout the day. Although it is silicone-free, it has that silicone slip and feel. I used it three different ways and liked them all. First, I tried it alone since I rarely wear foundation, and it left my skin feeling smooth and protected. The next day I applied face powder immediately after the primer, and again my face felt smooth and matte all day. I really like how my skin looks and feels with just the primer and powder. My powder lasted longer than usual since I applied it while the primer was still drying and setting. Lastly, I used the primer with a light coverage foundation and powder, and my makeup lasted all day, well into the night, and again my skin was smooth and matte. I've also tried the primer with moisturizer, but felt that my balanced skin had too much product on it, so I don't need a moisturizer when wearing this primer. It truly is a three-in-one timesaver and lived up to its claims. The handy pump dispenser tube is easy to use, dispensing the right amount for my needs in one pump. I experienced no pilling, and this primer worked well with everything else I paired it with. I like it a lot, and I'll finish it to the end, but I will not repurchase at the current full price. I have cheaper alternatives I like better, but this product does what it claims. I received this product complimentary from Lawless Beauty for reviewing and testing purposes; all opinions are truthfully my own.
