I got this in linen and wheat. it just does not work on me. it creases on me and i have dry skin and i dont belive my eye lids are oily but for me the best base i have tried is the nars base (pro something in white tube). I have used urban decay and it worked for a while but eventhat has started to crease on me.
I purchased this to use as an eyelid primer. First time using this product. Linen is the lightest shade offered and has a pink base so as a NW10, this was the only choice. I like it but I don't love it and I don't know why.
I have to use it very carefully else I get that WHITE LID look even under eyeshadow. It looks better all by itself as a nudish eyeshadow lid color. What I really like is using it UNDER the eye as a base to cancel out the purple/blue circles. It works well. Who knew.
I very much enjoy the packaging and feel of this product. It feels soft and glides seamlessly over my eyelids, and makes them feel like velvet. The color is a perfect base for my lids, and it evens out the color a bit, and if I'm in a rush I can even throw this on by itself, and it provides enough color for a very basic eye.
It feels and looks like it costs 24 dollars, which I appreciate, especially after spending that much money on a product. I read a lot of reviews and many said that this product reduced creasing and fading, which I found partially true. I'm not sure if I have unusually oily lids or what, but I found that after a 8 hour day, my eye makeup was almost gone or undetectable. I found that it did make my shadows more vibrant and last longer, but at some point during the day they would fade away to almost nothing.
Nevertheless, I really do like this product. You get a lot for your money, and it creates a very, very nice base. I imagine that this would work perfectly for someone with less oily lids then I have, but it still works really, quite nicely for me.
This is a perfect light cream shade for my very fair skin. I did not like the filmy feel this left on my skin. It did not make for a good eye primer. I much prefer using BE's Prime Time. As a shadow, it did not have a lot of staying power for me.
This is the perfect eye base in my opinion. I have pale skin with very thin skin on my eyelids which make them look very discoloured. This makes my eyelids look a million times better and keeps eyeshadow on well too. I much prefer it to UDPP which doesn't offer any cover.
This is the best eye lid primer I've found so far. The Linen color (which is light) blends wonderfully onto my eyelids and also under my eyes. There's no drying or cracking. And there's no irritation to my skin or eyes. Eyemakeup then applies flawlessly over it.
This is a pricey product, but a little goes a long way - it's concentrated.
I *so* wanted this product to work for me. I have been using UDPP for years, and while I love the way it performs, I find it hard to blend my eyeshadows over top of it. I thought this might be the solution to that problem. It does go on nicely and allow for seamless blending of powder eyeshadows, but it creases on me after a few hours :( The creasing is not as bad as it would be if I didn't use a primer at all, but if I'm going to use a primer, I need it to keep me crease-free for at least 8 hours. I think this would work just fine on someone with normal to dry skin, but for someone with oily eyelids, it doesn't hold up so well, at least in my experience.
Purchased this as I am running low on UDPP and too hard to get out the stoopid shaped tube, and living in AUS, have to do an international purchase. Got this in Linen, which is a good match for my nc20/clair/#30watt skin. Normal/combo skin, and I would say my eyelids have med levels of oil, defn can not do shadow/liner without a primer.
Have tried this product over a few days and varied the amount of product on application to see if there is a difference. I get creasing within 6+hrs...my holy grail primer is UDPP and I do get very very slight creasing with this also, but only after 10+ hrs and there is still shadow in place over the rest of the eyelid. With the LM primer, it's not only creasing but all the shadow/liner has travelled into the crease..hope that makes sense.
I've also tried the smashbox primer (which I haven't had success with either)...and LM is very similar to it. Although I got this quite cheap, I won't repurchase, I'll stick to UDPP and keep my fingers crossed that somebody starts to import this into aus, so that it's easily purchased.
I bought this product from ACW about 5 days ago and I was really excited to try it out because all of my other eyeshadow primers have been creasing on me lately. I never used to have a creasing problem with my eyeshadow primers and now all of them are creasing and I can't figure out why? I've tried UDPP in sin, eden, and original, TFSI, paint pots, paints, michael todd, nars, senna, and others. I like primers that are an opaque skintone color because I have veins on my eyelids that need to covered up. Some of my friends on youtube were raving about this so I thought this product would be perfect since it is a matte skintone color that is opaque. I will say that it did cover my eyelids very well and it looked very nice. Although Linen is very pale so if you are darker than about nc/nw20 I would go for a darker color like wheat. I am nc 15 in mac for reference and it is lighter than my skintone. I also like the way shadows are easy to blend on top of this primer since it does not stay sticky. The main problem I had was that it still creased after about 6 hours. Also it left my eyeshadow looking patchy (it was faded in the crease area). I hated the way it looked and it really sucks to spend a lot of time on a makeup look just to have it fade away. I really wanted to like this primer but I will not be repurchasing it. I will still try to work with it though (maybe I am using too much). If anyone has any suggestions for me on eye primers I would really appreciate it:)
I like this eye primer/base over other similar ones because it can also serve as a matte base. I wear this with eyeliner to work in the summer. I just need to be careful that I do not apply too much. I usually pat it on my hand first once and use that for both eyelids. It also dries really fast and has great staying power.
Also as a side note I tried to use it as a lip concealer yesterday as an experiment and once I put it on it was STUCK. I put it a little beyond the edges of my lips so I looked like I had a light liner on (horrible) and then I had to scrub it off. I might try it again but just on my lips, but not around them.
