This works good for keeping my eyeshadow on all day long. It's a little bit more oily than other primers I have tried, which is why I still prefer the urban decay primer, however this one is less expensive and still works good. I would keep repurchasing!
Hate to rain on this product's parade, but this primer doesn't work at all for me.
I have oily lids so reduced creasing and increased longevity/color vibrancy are important to me with an eye primer. I was really excited to try this after seeing good reviews online, but unfortunately I found that this doesn't improve the pigmentation & vibrancy of eye shadows, I still get creasing and my eyeshadows faded very quickly.
The product itself is a gel, very 'wet' feeling at first but dries down to a matte finish after 30 seconds or so. It's peach colored but when applied it turns transparent so it doesn't blank out the lid. I would imagine someone with drier lids might like this as the finish isn't drying but provides a nice matte base.
Overall, I much prefer UDPP or even MAC Pro Longwear concealer which performs better for me. I will not repurchase.
I bought this because it was the best reviewed lid primer on MUA.
I was disappointed.
I expected it to be wonderful, but it was average. Much of my eye shadow wore off during the day, and I was left with a thin line of dark shadow immediately above the crease...and my eyelids are not greasy.
Love love love this it's the only thing that stops my eyelids getting oily, and it keeps my eyeshadow looking perfect from the start until I'm ready to wash it off. So much better (and cheaper) than UD primer potion and TF shadow insurance. A must buy! A little goes a long way so it'll last you a long time
Here's another 5 stars to this one! :)
It comes in a convenient squeeze tube, smooth application, a little goes a long way, makes shadows last forever and great price! There's not a single thing i would change. I'm never gonna pay an arm and a leg for NARS's primer again!
So far this is THE BEST eye primer I have ever tried! I have super oily eyelids. I mean, insanely oily eyelids! I have tried UD's primer potion (good but doesn't last all day on my lids), L'Oreal decrease (crap), Maybelline color tattoos (why people recommend these as a primer I have no clue, as an eyeshadow base yes, but not a primer), MAC paint pots (again, good as a base not a primer), Lorac primer (which works awesome with lorac e/s but not with others for some reason) and Lumene (which was my HG primer that was discontinued from CVS a few years back but I bought a million back-ups)
Anyways, when I saw it go on sale on HauteLook for $9 I figured it was worth a shot! The product is a nude colored, gel-like consistency fluid that just sheers out upon application. You only need a little dot of product for each eye. Place the primer all over your eyelids and allow at least 1 minute for it to set. Once the primer is dry you can go ahead and begin applying your eyeshadow.
I find the eyeshadow lasts all day without creasing, the color stays true for at least 10 hours of wear and just makes application so easy (eyeshadow glides on and blends perfectly). I highly recommend this product!
I love this primer it's one of the few that does not make my eyes tear. It also lasts as long as UDPP in my opinion. In my mind this is the only one that works as well as Urban Decay but the bonus for me is it doesn't irritate my eyes. The colour is a very sheer nude it just bends away my veins and makes my lids look more even. I'm an NW15-20 for reference. It applies very smoothly and has a silky yet tacky feel to hold the shadow. So the shadow glides on very well and has something to adhere to. Once dry the surface is smooth and looks great.
The price was a little high 19$ when I saw it for 9$ on HauteLook I should of bought more but I had no idea how much I would love this. I will look for places to get it cheaper because it's the 1st primer that doesn't make my eyes tear! Plus the packaging is so dang cute and a squeeze tube I was sold.
My eyes always tear no matter what I do, where I put the primer,etc, you name it I probably have tried or done it. The only one that stacks up to this is UDPP which is my 1st love! This is a very close 2nd almost first because it has exceeded my expectations by so much. I have tried every eye primer on the market. From TooFace,Tarte,HourGlass,mineral primers, and so far this and Urban are the best the only difference is it is less irritating to my eyes. With UD sometimes I tear sometimes I don't so I'm not blaming the product.
I really think people with sensitive eyes will benefit from this. I never had eye issues till my 30's age for ya:( lol. But finally I can wear my palettes again because I won't cry them off! I'm super stoked I found this because i was going to pass on it but since I'm a sucker for primers in general I got it. Really glad I did for me it's a 5 lippie product because it lasts,doesn't crease,brightens colour,holds shadow for hours, and doesn't irritate my skin. What more could a girl ask for:)
I love everything about this.
To apply, simply squeeze a small amount onto your ring finger and apply all over eyelid. I find a tiny amount works fine. Leave it a minute and then apply your eye makeup as you normally would.
I have worn this twice now. On the first day, I applied it at 6:30 am. After work, at 6:30 pm my eye makeup was still in place. After a few drinks later on that night, one eye had creased and the other was still perfect.
Today, I applied it at 8:00 am. It's now 5:30pm and there is no creasing whatsoever.
My eye makeup usually creases after a couple of hours, so this is a huge improvement. The price was reasonable ($22AUD), especially as it is such a hardworking product.
I would recommend it to anyone looking for an eyeshadow primer which really does extend the wear time of their eyeshadow and inhibit creasing.
i will definetely buy again. eyeshadow stays on almost 11 hours!! i am in love with balm products for sure.
Colors last all day and minimal to no creasing! Comparable to, if not better than, UD, and you can't beat the price! I paid just $13 with free two day shipping on Amazon. Comes in a simple squeezy tube that lets you get every last bit of product out.
It applies smoothly and quickly sets into a satiny finish. Really gives your eyeshadow something to stick to. I will absolutely repruchase
