QUICKIE: Too Faced Hangover Primer

ITEM: Too Faced Hangover Primer
RRP: $44 (Sydney Price) 

Claims: Hangover is a revolutionary makeup primer infused with coconut water, probiotics and skin revivers that work together to boost skin's radiance, promote elasticity and help hydrate while locking down makeup for fresher, longer and more flawless wear. 

Too Faced 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. 

It will hydrate and brighten the 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. It's vegan friendly and paraben free.

I bought the Too Faced Hangover Primer because of the all the positive reviews that I had heard about it. I have extremely dry and quite sensitive skin, so hearing how 'hydrating' this product was supposed to be excited me, but I was a bit sceptical about whether or not it would be effective. The only primer which was worked for me in the past was the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer (but that costs an arm and a leg). So the following is a quick review on my overall thoughts and experience with the product.

One pump of the primer 
The primer spread out slightly
Since it is a silicon free primer, it's a more watery and runny formula.
  • Keeps my skin hydrated all day (which is huge for me to say)
  • Extremely thin and light on the skin
  • A little bit goes a long way (so little waste of product)

  • The scent is very sweet (some people may like this but I don't really enjoy that)
  • It takes quite some time for the product to really sink into the face (let it sit for about 3-5 minutes and it's perfect)

Overall: The fact that my skin remains hydrated (and doesn't feel like every drop of moisture has been sucked out of it) after even 8 hours significantly outweighs any of the cons this product may have.

Rating: 8.5/10


  1. how much does this one cost compared to the hourglass primer you mentioned? :)

    1. The Hourglass Primer is $69 for 30mL and this one is $44 for 40mL. However if you're happy paying the $69, a tiny droplet goes a very long way and I personally do prefer that over this one. But this one itself is fantastic too!

  2. Thanks for sharing. It sounds like a primer I might like, though a little out of my budget. I don't care for scented facial products though.

    1. Yeah the scent really put me off when I used it. I am now pretty used to it but it took some time. I do really love it on my dry skin and think oily skinned ladies would like it for winter. If its a bit pricey definitely get a tster first!
