This is the first es primer I've ever bought and I haven't had to switch at all! It totally works for me on my oily eyelids which eat through anything I put on them. I used the tiniest amount (I love the squeeze tube with the tiny nozzle) on each eyelid and let it dry to a slightly powdery finish. (I've even used this under my concealer.)
Eyeshadows and eyeliners don't crease, look brighter and truer to color and by the end of the day (or night..) just naturally fade ever so slightly. It's effing amazing, I haven't had to try anything else.

I like Urban Decay's Primer Potion too but I find that this one stops creasing completely. Everyone raves about UDPP but I think Too Faced is better to me.
I first tried the MAC soft ocre and painterly, and that was a little too heavy on my lid. Then I tried the Urban Decay primer but that was too drying on my lids, considering that I have pretty dry lids to begin with. Then I tried the Shadow Insurance! It is great. It has great creamy consistency and glides on my lids very smoothly. It makes my shadows and eyeliner last all day long considering my monolids.
this is amazing............
i have always used an es primer
paint pots, paint, laura mercier, etc etc but this truly beats them all...
for the past few months i have literally not picked another item up
i purchased the original and it is amazing!!!!!
es do not move in any weather and it brings es to life but not with a crazy shimmer or unwearable etc...
please try...way too hard to explain lol
A friend of mine used this when doing makeup on me and I fell in love! Eyeshadow stays in place, no creasing and it lasts all day. I have no problems using this primer, so I won't be switching anytime soon! :D
Love this eyeshadow primer! Makes my eyeshadow last all day without the slightest crease! Once I finished my tube I decided to try udpp to see what the hype was about.. and I wasn't as happy I noticed some creasing halfway through my day.. I will definitely be purchasing too faced shadow insurance again!
Love this! I suffered from oily lids for too long, no eyeshadow would stay on for even 3-4 hours no matter how good and expensive they are. I recently tried shadow insurance and now my makeup stays on for 12 hours only with minor fading. Definitely recommended if you have oily lids.
Omg... I wanted to try this product because I thought I needed a change from my urban decay primer potion ... Big mistake! my eyeliner and eyeshadows totally smudged and gave me raccoon eyes within 3 hours when I used this product underneath. It didn't make the product stay at all... It was horrible... I'm back to using my urban decay primer potion - I shouldn't have changed... Too faced shadow insurance was a waste of money...
Absolutely love this eyeshadow primer. It definitely does the job. On top of that, a little goes a long way! The packaging is great... very easy to control how much you use and very sanitary and airtight. But honestly, a little goes a longggg way. I just finally ran out of mine but now that I think about it, one package lasted me maybe 2 years? And I used it pretty much every single day almost. One little dot per eye is all you need!! Neverrrr experienced creasing while using this. It is a little pricey but totally worth it! Incredibly happy with this product and would repurchase it.
Does what it says! I can wear my makeup all day, sleep in it, and wake up and it looks like I just applied it! Love this product!! Very little needed, so don't waste it, it will last you a long time, I've had mine over a year.
