Curtain Call: Onomie Powerful Priming Serum

Hey guys! It’s Fri-YAY! Today’s post is on a product I got from my ipsy May 2018 Glam Bag. I ran out of facial serum one day and looked at my stash to see what I have. Even though I got it a while back, it’s brand new and sealed so I gave it a go. Here’s my thoughts on the Onomie Powerful Priming Serum.

Onomie Powerful Priming Serum

Stated from their website:

    An antioxidant-packed serum and makeup primer in one
    This serum-meets-primer replenishes the skin, boosts radiance, and evens tone and texture, while priming skin for makeup application. Infused with Daisy Flower Extract to brighten and even skin tone, Blackjack Botanical to increase collagen production and Willowbark Extract to encourage cell turnover, our P.P.S. is clinically proven to bring a visible improvement to skin’s tone and texture. Used daily, our Powerful Priming Serum leaves skin healthier – with or without makeup.

What I love about this product? It is both a facial serum and makeup primer. I don’t use makeup primer much or have experience in them really so this review is more on as a facial serum. The 2-in-1 aspect might be a motivating factor to purchase for some. A little goes a long way and I don’t mind the texture of the product. It is slightly more viscous than I thought but that’s no problem as long as the application is seamless with it, which it is. I feel like this does moisturize my skin but it also has fine shimmer in it. I do believe it makes my face look brighter and better due to that so I saved it for use in the facial serum step during the AM only (I used another one for that step during PM). Some might not like the fine shimmer, which is not expected from a facial serum but I think it’s more prevalent in makeup primers. It gives your face an iridescent glow when under light.

What I don’t like about this product? Because that this is a 2-in-1 product, I feel that it falls a bit short as a facial serum. It is not bad, but it’s not great. It’s only okay and that doesn’t warrant any thought of repurchase in my book.
