Loved it it brightened up my eyes and stayed on great! No creasing looked amazing.
This silky eye shadow primer applies smoothly and evenly to the eyelid, I only use a small amount. It has a soft beige/peach tint which provides a perfect "brightening" base without shimmer (can be used alone if you're in a hurry or after an ultra-natural look). It really grabs the eye shadow so I pat colour on before blending.
I find it gives me the confidence to use eye shadow as eye liner without worrying that it is going to head south. I love that there is no creasing, fading or loss of vibrancy, and my eye shadow designs stay exactly where I put them, all day. It's also very reasonably priced, comes in a cute little tube and can be dispensed hygienically.
Without this my eyeshadow always creases after not even half an hour.
With this primer, it stays put all day with no crease in sight!
The Brightening Pearl shade has a slight shimmer which looks great on it's own for a subtle look.
I can't get enough of this product!! I've used it in original, eye brightening and a few different colors, and I just love them ALL. I have super oily lids and this products works amazingly well. My eye makeup doesn't move for hours, and I'm talking 12-14 hours! Try it, you won't be disappointed!
I have an oily face, therefore oily eyelids. I used urban decay's eye primer for a long time but at the end of the day, my eye makeup was faded and creased until I discovered bare mineral's eye primer in original as sample and BAM my eye makeup lasted longer. I know it's bad, but even when I get too lazy to take off my makeup, my eyemakeup is still on in the morning. That's how well this works!!! When I get to the end of my tube, I shake it upside down to get the product out. I have repurchased this at least 3 or 4 times. I love this!!!
This was my first primer ever - i don't know how I managed to live for so long without even knowing there was such a thing as a primer. I've been using this (practically daily) exactly a year this month and I'm still on my first tube although I have already bought a second one as I want to have it on hand when my first package finally runs out.
I like the pearly shade but to be honest I rarely wear it on its own. Only occasionally I squeeze out a bit more product, apply on eye lids in a thicker than usual layer and use only with eye liner and mascara - this is a good routine when I'm running to work even more late in the morning than usual. But in 99% cases I apply a thin layer as a base under my eye shadows and it's a miracle - no creasing of my eye shadows and my eyes look in the evening exactly the same as when I applied the make up in the morning. The only thing this wonderful little tube can't do is to prevent my mascara from sometimes creating panda eyes under my eyes but at least my top eye lid looks perfect even though there are black smudges under my eyes... maybe if I stopped rubbing my eyes....
I don't usually bother with this kind of stuff, but the s/a told me that if I use it with the shadow liners, it will last longer than water. It does work great with the shadow liners, and since I have it I've been using it on my eyelids too. It certainly does grab the shadow and keep it there all day, and I think it helps prevent fallout. The shadows may not glide as easily over my eyelid, but the fact that they stay put so long makes it worth it.
Careful buying ... there is the "original" matte and various "brightening" versions (pearl, gold & maybe others). I use the original and love it. I have very oily hooded lids ... this is the only thing that keeps shadow in its place. I will re-purchase as long as it's available.
Got a sample @Sephora.I love the fleshy pale color but it does hav e a ton of shimmer. I used it alone and it did stay put for over 6 hours. May have laster longer if I didn't wash it off. It wiped off quite easily with my Neutrogena eye MU remover lotion. Somehow it seemed to creep under my eyes a bit. I prefer matte shadow primers. This is good for someone who likes shimmery lids. I haven't tried it under eye shadow but I suspect it will add some shimmer.
I don't think there is a category for exactly this eyelid primer from Bare Minerals/Bare Escentuals and I apologize if I am duplicating an already existing category. It's so hard to keep track because of the confusion over Bare Minerals vs Bare Escentuals but in any case.....
I got a quite large sample of this product (half the size of a full-sized tube) in The Star Treatment eyeshadow palette. Now, I already have quite a few eyeshadow primers that I like and which work for me (UDPP - the original, Sin and Eden), TFSI, Laura Mercier, Painterly Paint Pot and quite a few other cream shadows in various tints that work both on their own and as bases/primers for other shadows. So I had never tried this and probably would never have tried it since I'm so happy with the primers I have. But let me say that this is every bit as good as UDPP or TFSI. It looks like a pale flesh colour when you squeeze it out of the tube and seems to have a bit more tint to it than the originals of UDPP or TFSI but I'll have to look more closely the next time I use it.
If you are someone who has trouble with Urban Decay Primer Potion or TFSI (I know some people do have problems with these primers drying their lids or making them look dry), then this primer is certainly worth a look. If I didn't already have products I like and need to finish, I wouldn't hesitate to purchase this primer.
