just for comparison here are the primers that stay in my most used eye drawer:
too faced shadow insurance
urban decay primer potion
lorac behind the scenes eye primer
benefit stay dont stray
mac paint pots (a few different colors)
and for the summer....? THIS BEATS THEM ALL. i do have oily skin, so for my dry skinned ladies this may dry out your eye area. but for the summer i do love :) the only problem with this is you HAVE to use your fingers because other wise the brush you use gets all gunky and stiff. another thing is i would recommend using a matte skin tone shade all over the lid before you apply any color because it will make it easier to blend out. i found this at walgreens and rite aid.
this has replaced UDPP has my HG eye primer....by a landslide!! Cheap, easy to use packaging and works like a charm. best $4.99 I've spent on make up! Seriously, if this ever gets reformulated or discontinued, I dont know what I will do. Hasn't let me down, even on hot days with high humidity, no creasing.
An eyeshadow primer is essential for someone like hooded eyes, like me. Take on the Day prevents my eyeshadow from creasing, lasts all day, and has a very affordable price. Edit: found out I was using too much. Now I use the tiniest amount possible, like 1/4 a grain of rice, and it works great without giving my eyelid a crepey texture! Perfection.
Totally worthy HG primer!!!
So I ran out of my Elf eyelid primer and got this to try.....seriously hapy I did!!!
I used to use UDPP wich I liked a lot but in the summer it would make my oily eyelids worse so I moved on to the Elf eyelid primer and thats awesome too! But I ended up running out of that and decided to try this one. I must say this WnW Fergie primer is AMAZING!!!!!
*Its been hot & humid where I live and like yesterday I was out in the sun and heat all day for hours..not once did my eye shadow budge,no creasing nor did my lids get oily at all!!
*This formula glides on nicely & feels creamy.
*A little goes a long way....I like how when I take the cap off no product comes squishing out all over. The tube is easy to control.
*Works great with any type of eyeshadow.
Overall this is one primer worth trying imo...imo its better then UDPP (wich I will never go back to) I was very impressed on how my eye shadow stayed put during sweltering humid,heat for 6 plus hours and zero oil on my lids..no primer I have used has been this excellent in combating oil lol Just simply amazing!!!
For about $5 at Walgreens you cannot go wrong and WnW seems to be stepping it up...they did beyond good with this product!! Super impressive!!
I love this stuff! It works better for my oily lids than UD's primer potion. If I use this, my eyeshadow usually lasts all day, and there have been nights when I've fallen asleep with eyeshadow + this stuff on, and it's been perfectly in tact the next day. It's almost TOO drying for my oily lids, but that's really not an issue (I hate my oily lids). For the price and the availibility, this stuff is my HG eyelid primer, and I won't be straying anytime soon.
I am majorly impressed with this product. I have very, very oily eyelids and have not had any luck with any drugstore primers. I bought this on a whim and I am glad I did!
I this works just as good as my 20.00 UDPP and TFSI for a fraction of the cost. Plus you get a good amount of product.
It is lightweight, you only need a little dab, and made my shadow stay on all day! (even in hot, muggy weather)
I need to go an buy more before they decide to discontinue or change the formula!
I love this primer. I purchased it on a whim, thinking I could use it for day to day wear and save my UDPP. I ended up loving it and I think it works better than UDPP. I have oily eyelids and my eyeshadow stays on all day, until I remove it with makeup remover. Great product! I hope this one is around for a long time.
I am impressed, but I sorta figured with all the great reviews I would be. You never know though. I usually use Mac paint pots, which I love, but I also love to experiment with makeup and see if cheaper alternative work. This does. I won't be giving up my paint pots any time soon, but this is a great primer to have in my arsenal. The thing this has over my paint pot in Bare Study is that this really intensifies my eyeshadow colors. I never noticed any intensifying to this extent with my paint pot, but this primer really does make my shadow pop in a way I have never had a primer noticeably do before. It was sort of alarming the first time I applied my Stila Kitten eyeshadow over it....it was sooo much more sparkly and intense. I just will know not to use this when I want a more natural, subdued look.
I highly recommend checking this out. It intensifies eyeshadows, adds longevity to shadow life and prevent creasing even in extreme heat. I don't have air conditioning in my car and this has lasted through many rides without melting or fading away. Excellent performance and affordable too boot! :D
I am SO impressed with this product. Before this, I was using Urban Decay's primer potion and it did a decent job. It definitely kept my eye makeup lasting longer than it would without a primer but it didn't prevent my shadow from creasing. I have EXTREMELY oily lids so I'm not too surprised but for the price and the rave reviews I expected that it will keep my shadow from budging all day. Now on to Wet n' Wild's primer. Reading some good reviews on it here, I decided to give it a try. This is now my HG eye primer. I wore this to work for 6-7 hours and when I got home, I was amazed to find that my eyeshadow didn't crease! It also came off easily using eye makeup remover (I use Equate or Neutrogena). The price is great, especially compared to the primer potion. I'm even thinking about going back to Walgreens to pick up a backup in case they discontinue this!
EDIT: it's kept it's awesomeness and I grab it over my UDPP all the time, since it's just as good. The liquid like quality faded and it's now a paste that isn't hard to blend at all, really good to use under eyes before concealer too :) Buy it! Five dollars, and you may save a lot more on your eyeshadow primer :)
