Cool!it works! Last the eyeshadow longer and let it more pigmented, price so cheap~The packing is so so, overall, with the nice price, it is really worth it! Will purchase again!
For me, this is a take it or leave it product. Actually, I'll be leaving it once I use it up. It's translucent and spreads evenly, but the package is ridiculous (why would I bother to wiggle the sponge wand around for hours to get the product once it's half-way used up?) and the product is fairly, "Meh".
It does the trick in as much as it creates a smooth surface and prevents creasing, but it does a mediocre job of keeping the colour true throughout the day. I consider it false economy to pay $12 for something you can only use half of before you don't have the time to fuss around with trying to scoop out when you can buy a tube of Too Faced for double the price, have a better product and more than 4 times as much use out of (right down to the last drop).
I've only found it useful as a primer for my MAC paint pot bases which need a bit of slip to blend well and really ensure that you have solid base for your eyeshadow and liner for the day (or night). Ultimately, like most Australis products, it just doesn't quite cut it. If you've tried swathes of primers over the years, as I have, you'd be better off not bothering with this one. The only saving grace was that it didn't cost as much as NARS Pro to find out it wasn't worth the bother.
I bought this product as a cheap alternative to the urban decay eye primers, and am very happy with the results given it's price. It goes on easily and is quite silky, and soaks in within a few minutes. I have oily eyelids and this product prevents them from creasing within 4-5 hours of application. It also helps retain the vibrancy of the eye shadow colours.
I have extremely oily eyelids and this will last me around 4-5 hours and then it will begin to crease but I only use this to control oil so I can wipe away without ruining shadow or anything. very good price, and I have a magical tip, pop out the little silicone cap at the top of the tube (i used tweezers) when you think you have none left and bam you have so much product left!
Do not waste your money. Overpriced and poor quality. Gave me a rash, which took days to go away. Company has very poor customer service, they ignore you if you have a problem with any of their products. Most Australis products are very cheaply made in south east Asia.
This lasted for about 6 hours without creasing, but after that sixth hour boy did it crease and crease bad. The first 6. Hours though it did last well and really bring out the pigments of the eyeshadow colors, to bad it just can't last the whole day.
Easy application and great product. I haven't tried any other eye makeup primers before but I don't feel the need to try any others either. This works great! I have some pretty bad quality eye shadows that are then bright, bold, beautiful and long lasting when I put this first. Love this product.
this product does ok. I prefer the ELF primer over this. THe product does the job like any other primer. My only hate with this product, was the small amount of product you get. Sure ive had mine for about 6 months, but i alternate my products and this is nearly running out! the packaging sucks as it looks like you have alot of product, but really you dont. They should make it a clear tube, or a squeeze! Price is ok, but i wont repurchase. Just bought the NYX HD primer and im liking that alot!
Love this primer. HG!! I don't have particularly oily eyelids, but they have a slight hood, so if I go too thick with my eyeliner, without a primer, it will definitely transfer on my upper eyelid by lunch.
Pros: Works beautifully! This was the first eyeshadow primer I had bought and it worked great! I decided to venture out and try some other ones such as FOA, Inglot and Urban Decay Primer Potion. I would say that this works just as well as the UD, but at a fraction of the price! Sells in Australia for approx AUD$12.95, but there are always sales on it and you can get it for under $10.
Cons: Packaging - although it looks cute, the packaging is crap! When i first started using it, i thought that the product ran out within a month. When I took of the little rubber seal around the top, there was still sooo much product left in the tube. I ended up getting another 2 months of primer out of it. If they changed the packaging to a squeeze tube, it would be the perfect product.
Already on my second tube, and will repurchase once I finish
I like this eyeshadow primer, but it's not my HG. It certainly does make eyeshadows more vibrant and eyeliners last a lot longer! Also makes anything on my eyelid pretty close to smude-proof! One bottle has lasted me about 6-7 months. The packaging is very cute - a bright pink tube with a black lid. However the tube is a hassle - it's very hard to get all the product out, and I also like to see how much product I have left...but the packaging doesn't allow this. The primer is also hard to depot because the packaging is so hard.
The price of $12.95 is a little steep although you can get it for $3 cheaper when there are sales on at Big W, Kmart etc. However, I prefer my Etude house Proof 10 Eye Primer which retails at $6.30 online on eBay since it also allows me to see how much product I have left. But overall, not a bad eyeshadow primer at all! Certainly does a good job, and I would repurchase if it was on sale.
