HolyMotherofTerribleMakeup. This stuff is horrible. I rarely write negative reviews about anything but I just have to say I don't even see how this stuff is called a primer! I feel like my shadow stays on longer when I wear no primer compare to this! I have very dry skin everywhere on my face other than my eyelids so I do need a primer to keep my shadows on all day and thought I'd give this a try because I do enjoy some Rimmel products, but I was extremely disappointed and obviously won't be repurchasing. Lameeee.
I am shocked at the many horrible reviews. This is one of the better primers I have used. I gave this a 4 simply because it is not really waterproof and it does not really intensify colour put on top. If you are looking for a primer that will keep your shadow on for the day and not crease, this is an affordable product that works well. I recommend it and I will be buying it again.
In case it helps, I apply this on clean, un-moisturized eyelids to avoid sliding. PAT the product on to achieve a heavier base.
Hope I hear some other purchasers back me up!
I mean pretty much reading all the reviews just now, mine is going to be very similar. It didnt do anything but actually crease my eyeshadow more. I was looking for a drugstore eyeshadow primer becuase I was done forking out the money for the urban decay one, so I picked up this one. Bad decision. I herd the wet n wild fergie eyeshadow primer is good, so hopefully I can find that somewhere.
Horrible! I have oily lids and this product doesn't work. My eyeshadow was creased and my eyelids were oily within a few hours of application. My eyeshadow also went on very light and not vibrant as the product claims. My $1 ELF eye primer beats the pants off this stuff. Don't buy it!
I have greasy eyelids so eye shadow seems to glide off by mid-day, and this product claims to make your eyeshadow last longer and make is smudeproof. It did not seem to make it worse, but it did not seem to make it better either. It really seems to have little, if any effect at all. That being the case I would rather save my time and money and skip this product all together.
Terrible. The texture was smooth going on but does absolutely nothing for my eyeshadows. My liquid eyeliner melted off with this and the eyeshadow creased. Just awful. Elf primer is much better than this.
Can only agree with what most other reviewers have said - it's TERRIBLE! Doesn't do anything to help my eyeshadow last longer, if anything it ends up creasing more. Complete waste of money, you might as well rub moisturiser into your eyelids!!
Totally agree with most of the reviewers. This MADE my eyeshadow crease. By the end of the day the half that wasn't gone looked oily and creased. Awful stuff.
This product is total garbage. I bought this as a cheap alternative to my Nars eyelid primer but this is just terrible. It's very "wet" when applying it and it doesn't ever seem to dry on the eyelids. It makes my eyeshadow crease terribly. It doesn't work at all, what crap. I wouldn't recommend this to my worst enemy. This is disappointing because I usually really like Rimmel, it's one of my favourite drugstore brands.
I was determined to ignore reviews of Rimmel Eaggerate undercover shadow primer and give it an honest review and experiment to discover for myself if it worked..... I should have believed others on MUA. I thought maybe they are expecting too much, maybe they are not really testing the product to see if it could indeed work or maybe they are being snobby that it is not a HE primer....
I could not be more wrong. Every review I have read has been dead on. All the comments on the board have been accurate to a tee! Sorry Rimmel you blew it with this one. It really is overpriced for the amount of product you get and it does not work. I even tried this on my wrist to see if it would last without the oily eyelid so many of us have. No luck this is not a great product.
Does not hurt your eyes
Does not last,
Does not stop shadow from creeping into crease
Does not intensify color as it claims on the package
I found my eyeshadow to stay on longer NOT using this primer
I won't buy this again. The review are accurate this is a TERRIBLE product.
