This eye shadow primer is amazing, you only need a tiny amount and makes your shadow more vibrant and stays on the whole day!! I bought the travel-size to give it a shot and I am most definitely going to buy the value-size when finished!
It's a good primer. I like it and it definitely does the job it's intended to do. I find that when I use this with my eyeshadows, they do come on more vibrant and stay on longer. I only use this when I remember to use it as I'm very forgetful so sometimes this just lays sitting around in my makeup collection. So sad...sigh* but it's definitely good when I do remember to use it. I might repurchase but I might not since I don't really remeber to use it since I don't wear makeup for long periods of time, my makeup style is very subtle, and most of my eye makeup stuff are very long lasting by itself. I mainly use this for vibrancy when shadows don't show up as much as I would want it to.
Bought this at sephora, recommended by the staff there. Did not suit my skin tone at all, I have asian skin and it humid most of the year round. The texture is smooth but felt greasy after application which left my eye shadow splotchy after awhile. A waste of money, I would not repurchase.
The primer potion goes on easily and makes my eye shadow stay put!
Colours also look brighter when I wear this underneath, I don't have anything bad to say about this product really.
Does exactly what it says on the tin!
I got this for free with my Naked palette, and I was happy to find out that the positive reviews were true! No creasing or smudging of my eyeshadow. I already had a tube of Smashbox's eye primer which I also like, so it's going to be a difficult choice between them when I run out.
I was so torn about this product. I convinced myself for a long time that it was the GREATEST EVER, but, after using other brands, I realized that- at least for me- it really falls short.
First off, my eyelids aren't super greasy. They are a little, but not so much so that it is a pressing concern. However, they're not dry or "mature" by any means. However, this primer made my eyelids super crepey! I didn't understand it at all. One minute they're fine and normal looking, and the next- I've aged ten years! On top of that, I experienced how challenging it is to perfect an eye look when working with crepey eyes. Seriously- it's way more of a struggle than it should be.
Now, you may be wondering how I didn't realize this was an issue as soon as it happened. Well, I honestly have no idea. I think I was just sold too deep into the hype to realize that this did absolute crap for me. Rather than admit that this had struck out for me, I just didn't wear eyeshadow, I was over trying to deal with making my eyeshadow look a little less horrible, and eventually I actually convinced myself that my eyelids just magically got crepey whenever I put ANY eye products on them.
And to top that all off, most (if not all) eyeshadows were incredibly hard to blend when I wore this primer underneath. I assumed the eyeshadows were all poor quality, but I reused many of them with a new primer and- lo and behold!- many of them blended like a dream. Some of them were just poor quality, but I was shocked to discover how many off them were actually pretty great. I was just so relieved that I hadn't thrown them away after I thought they didn't work! That would have just been a colossal waste of money.
I know that this primer does work for many people- but it really wasn't for me. I don't think I'd recommend it to anyone. If you're considering this- PLEASE shop around and get samples of different products before deciding!
After reading tons of great reviews and how this is a good primer for people with oily lids (like me), I finally bought this. Let me just say that I don't really have sensitive skin or anything like that and I've never had a problem with makeup before (and I wear quite a lot) but I had a pretty bad allergic reaction to this. During the night my eyelids were extremely itchy and when I woke up I was shocked to see myself in the mirror. My eyelids were HUGE! They were totally swollen and red! Lucky for me they settled down as the day went on and were normal again by the end of the day. But still, very disappointed in this product.
I don't know what the hype about this product is about really, just seems like a okay primer
I was so excited to try this product. It was silky smooth and absorbed well. The eyeshadow glides over it perfectly and it stays perfectly in place all day. That's why I'm devastated that my eyes turned bright red with an allergic reaction. Same thing happened to my best friend. If you have sensitive eyes, you should skip this product. If not, run to go get it!
I love the packaging of this primer! I've only ever used one other primer (it was a really cheap ELF one) so I can't really compare it to anything but overall this primer works really well to keep my eyeshadow on and my eyeshadow doesn't crease. I really wish there was a drugstore dupe for this because I don't feel like paying so much ($25 for a full size in Canada) for a primer. I only have the mini version and I'm considering buying the big one! I'm going to look around for a dupe at the drugstore. Overall great product!
