What is a lip primer?

How to use a lip primer?
Lip primers come in various forms—tube packaging, clear lipstick formations, or pencil formulas—each one works aptly well and in its own unique well.
After exfoliating your lips, if using a primer in a twist-up lipstick formulation, just apply it to the entire vicinity of your beautiful mouth, covering even the corners—just like you would apply a regular lip balm or lipstick directly from the tube.
If using a pencil kind of packaging, use it to merely line your lips if you are wearing a bold lip color, in order to avoid the color from feathering. But you can also fill in the lips with the primer if your lipstick can be prone to smudging or creasing.
Thirdly, if using a tube like packaging with a wand applicator, apply a really thin layer of it, just like you would apply a lip gloss and wait till it dries completely. Go on and fill in the color of your choice on top of the primer. The final lip look would be so much smoother, crease-free, wrinkle-free and plumped up.
