This is more like a concealer to me. It's very good at covering my veiny eyelids but as far as anything else goes its a downer. It didn't keep my eyeshadow on and it creased terribly within the first hour. The packaging is a little bulky but I do like it because you can really choose how much product you want. It was overall not an eye primer for me at all just a really good coverup for my veiny eyelids.
The texture is very smooth and kind of oily at first, but after you've blended it on your lids, it settles down nicely. Feels light on the skin, not heavy or sticky at all. And just 'cause of the smooth texture, I wouldn't expect it to work with pigments or any loose form of eyeshadow. But with a regular powdery one it'll do its work. I like to use it on days when I like to do a nude, dewy and natural face. It doesn't grease on me at all and keep my shadows in place all day long. I don't know will it work on super oily lids, though? 'Cause it has that little oily feel to it.
Never used an eye primer before and got this one free with the Mega effects Mascara from Avon. Got to say it's brilliant even with other eye shadows. It's never creased and I can't believe it could look good on my Asian skin. I have friends from different backgrounds and it seems to blend in well on any skin tone. So glad I got it free :)
Im fairly new to eyeshadow primers but let me say they do make a diffrence i was using elfs eyeshadow primer which i liked but i ordered this avon one it was on special for 2.99. I loved it my eyedhadow used to always crease horribly wout primer but this primer is so wonderful its so light it feels like u put nothing at all it kept my eyeshadow in place for over 24 hours lol seriously and it kept my eyeliner from smuding on my lower lash line which i always have trouble keeping in place...over all i would buy again and again
I love this, I bought an eyeshadow quad and this came free, which is the reason I bought it coz I was dying to try this out and it works like magic! it is non greasy goes on smoothly and keeps the eyeshadow where you put it, eyeshadow looks fresh till I take it off at night. I also love this coz I put a little under my lower waterline and that fixes my eyeliner making it last a lot longer than it normallY would. this is a must buy, love it!
Bought this because of the good reviews, but doesn't work on my oily, hooded lids at all. Also creased within an hour.
Don't use this if you seem to suffer from very oily eyelids like me!
Love this primer! Definitely long lasting and holds eye shadow in place! One of the best Avon products to own! Get one!
When I first tried this I expected it to be like a cream shadow because it is in a pot but it's liquidy much like elf's eye shadow primer. I have the light shade and it works well at hiding veins and discoloration on my lids. I use this everyday before I put on eyeshadow and even with oily lids this keeps my eyeshadow looking the same at the end of the day as when I put it on.
I just bought this and used it for the first time today. It reminds me of a face primer such as the pore fessional but it works into the lid very nicely with no greasy feel at all. I got both shades but the lighter of the two is backordered so I won't get it for another week or so. I am anxious to try it. My go to eye primer has been the Jordana one and I love it to pieces but it is a thicker primer, more like a paint pot I think. It's 4:25 and I've had it on for almost 10 hours now and no creasing at all! I'll check again before I wash my face tonight but I think it's going to be a great product. And I love the jar! Once it's empty I can re use it for a shadow or something! Way to go Avon.
I used this product for the first time today, and while it's only been a few hours since I applied my makeup, I'm already impressed. Eyeshadow is *not* my strong suit, so to experiment I like to get cheap ones (which crease).
After walking to work on a sunny, warm day, my lids still look perfect.
Also, the formula went on beautifully. The package said this can even be worn alone (good for people like me who could use a touch of coverage). Great color match too.
One other reviewer mentioned this, though, my one pet peeve - why is Avon having this made in China?!
However, due to the low price point and quality of the product, I would repurchase.
