This actually works pretty well on my *extremely* oily eyelids, on which a primer is a must, if I want to wear eyeshadow for more than a few minutes.
My oil-slick lids proved to be too much for UD PP, unfortunately, so I've been trying out others. The blinc primer, which comes in a long metal tube, and features a doe-foot applicator, is very, very light; it's almost too light even for my NW15 skin. I'm not sure how or even if it would work on deeper skin tones. If I apply it sparingly, and blend immediately and well, the paleness is really not a problem for me. It *does* make my eyeshadows stand out, and that's a plus. With the blinc primer, my eyeshadows last from four to six hours before they even begin to feel a bit oily, and for me, that's pretty great.
My only complaints about this primer are the aforementioned paleness, a somewhat "sticky" texture that takes a while to set, and the price ( about$20, though it ships free from blininc.com).
The fact that blinc is a cruelty-free company is a HUGE plus, and the main reason I gave this primer a try. I'll most likely buy this one again, unless I hear of something even better.
NOTE: This was my first order from the blinc website. They shipped my order almost immediately, but through USPS it took well over a week to get to me. continued >>
