Danessa Myricks Prism FX Hydrating Lotion Review

Courtney is wearing Danessa Myricks Prism FX Hydrating Lotion all over her face in this foundation free look.

I love the Danessa Myricks Prism FX Hydrating Lotion. LOVE IT! I have been using it non-stop since I discovered it at the Makeup Show Orlando 2018 (see my Makeup Show Orlando Recap and Haul).

The Prism FX primer is cruelty-free and vegan. I believe all of the Danessa Myricks beauty products are vegan, too.

I use Prism FX several different ways. First, I use it as a primer on its own. It’s got enough hydration for my dry skin, yet it isn’t oily on me in the slightest.  I think my skin looks amazing when I wear it by itself. You know I’m insecure about my skin because of my rosacea. So for me to feel like I look pretty without foundation is amazing.

Second, after using the Prism FX Hydrating Lotion as a primer, I will mix it into foundations or other complexion products to add illumination to the foundations as well as sheer them out. I hate full coverage foundation on me because it looks so terrible and mask like, so this really helps to counter that.

Third, I like to incorporate the techniques that Danessa Myricks taught in her Complexion class. She said to mix whatever primer or beauty oil you use into every facial product you use to help the products meld into the skin. So I will mix a drop of Prism FX into my cream or liquid blushes, highlighters and contours.

Now the only thing I don’t like about this product is the price! It’s $28 for .5 oz, which seems very pricey to me! By Comparison, my previous holy grail primer was the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, which I would spend $75 for 2 oz of the value size, and I would normally get 15% – 20% off because I would time buying it during a Nordstrom or Sephora sale.

In short, I’m obsessed with glowy skin that looks lit from within and the Danessa Myricks Prism FX Hydrating Lotion gives it to me. I love it and I’ve repurchased it once and will do so again. I just wish you got more product for the price!

  • This looks really beautiful, i like hydrating too! But im worried if this would make my pores look bad since I have enlarged pores on my cheeks. I feel like I could get away with putting this on my nose and upper cheek bones but not everywhere. haha

  • I only buy hydrating primer, and the price on this one is terrific. I just bought two bottles of other brands, but this goes on the list. PS I saw a pair of black leggings like yours from Wit & Wisdom in 4P on sale at for $39.97. I just bought a pair of olive pants from the brand on Nordstrom Rack for $25, and I’ll see how they fit. I think this brand is similar to another brand of pants I bought last year, and I bought a size smaller from that brand. I ordered an 8P from W&W because there were no 6Ps in any shade that I liked. Thanks for the recommendation
