We’ve all seen products with “actual gold flakes” in them and I’ll be honest, my initial response is awe and wonder. My second response is, does it even work?! Does gold belong in beauty products?!
Today I’ll be sharing my thoughts and impression of the NYX serum & primer Honey Dew Me Up (with gold flecks)!
LET’S TALK ABOUT THE INGREDIENTS
Aside from the tiny gold flecks, this primer also infused with honey and collagen! Those are three ingredients I haven’t seen together in any other serum/primer.
The combination designed to neutralize the appearance of discoloration and redness while the gold flecks reflect light for a luminous finish.
LET’S TALK ABOUT THE TEXTURE
When you first apply it to your face you might be caught off guard by the unique slimy texture. It’s not sticky (thank goodness!) or thick like most serums.
Think of it as a cooling gel with a little more wetness to it. It actually feels refreshing on your face.
WHAT ABOUT THE RESULTS – DOES IT WORK?
I used the primer on days I was tired and my skin looked dull and zombie-like.
I noticed a lot of plumping/firmness and a luminous appearance. I wouldn’t say I had a “honey glow” so much as I just looked alive and bright!
Overall, I think of this product as more of a skincare serum than a primer. I would recommend it if you’re looking for plump, luminous skin but I wouldn’t choose it if your main goal is extending the life of your makeup.
HOW DO YOU USE IT?
After washing your face, apply a thin layer and let it dry completely (2-5 minutes). Then you can apply your makeup like normal.
