As an avid exerciser, I got tired of reapplying makeup throughout the day. Then I purchased Eye Basics in Mocha. This shadow does not come off until you remove it at night - I put it on at dawn, go through a full day including workouts and a nap, and it doesn't even crease. My only complaint is that the applicator does not really work for the product, using a brush is much easier although you must work quickly as the product dries fast. Love it.
This looks great alone or under eye shadow. Alone, it makes my lids look smooth and covers discolorations. Under shadow, it holds the color in place. I have it in wheat, which matches my skin color pretty well, it just brightens my eyes in a natural way.
I agree with everyone who thinks this is the best eye primer on the market. Many days, I wear it alone without anything other than eyeliner. I'm using Linen but I'd also like to get Wheat. LM's also just come out with three additional colors. My only somewhat negative comment would be that it seems to disappear by evening, no creasing... just disappears. I'd probably reapply just a little if I was going out for the evening. But for the majority of the day, it looks great. Update (09/25/03): Well, I have to admit that this primer just isn't working. I put some Almay Amazing Lasting concealer on one eyelid and the LM on the other. The Almay side "won" - both in smoothness and how long it lasted. Both faded but the Almay never creased and lasted longer. Plus, I've noticed that LM is beginning to dry out badly - there's lots of dry buildup just inside the neck of the wand. So thumbs down on this one...
Best product I've ever found to prep your eyelids for shadow and make it STAY ON!!! And it goes a long way. I use the Linen shade and could go one darker. No irritation or flaking of any kind with this product that dots on very nicely with its wand.
This is an eye primer in a glass tube with wand applicator, like a lipgloss. It dries quickly, giving very opaque coverage, and makes a nice smooth even base to apply your eyeshadow on. It lasts perfectly all day under eyeshadow, completely eliminating creasing and holding the pigment. I have very oily lids and normally get a lot of creasing and color loss - with Eye Basics my make up stays perfect all day. This is 10x better than any similar product I have tried and I will definitely be buying again.
