I'll be frank: I'm a glitter kind of girl. And I don't just mean the kind of glitter that a lot of people favor, I mean the kind of glitter that gets called too chunky and unwearable and impossible to use because of fallout. With this product? Nothing is impossible to use. At least not because of how glittery it is.
Pixy Epoxy has been effective in making my shadows more vibrant, last longer, bringing fallout to practically nothing, and -- best of all, in my mind -- making those glitters that reviews call pretty in the pan but disappointing or difficult on the eye look perfect. When I first got this, I tested out Urban Decay's Uzi, a chunky glitter shadow famous for its fallout. Not only did every bit stick perfectly with Pixie Epoxy and couldn't be rubbed off, it actually picked up glitter from the non-epoxy'd sample when it was rubbed.
Basically, if you like glitterbombs, use this and you will be instantly seduced. If you own any shimmer or glitter eyeshadow, you probably will be too.
I can't express how much I love this product...this has allowed me to use all of my loose shadows again without having to worry about fallout. As others say, use a TINY bit and allow it to dry a little then pat eyeshadow on.
I have to say that this is my HG primer for all my mineral eyeshadows.
The first couple of times,I used this, I used way too much, and my shadows and eyeliner ended up all smudged. I looked horrible and I was on the brink of writing this off. I checked out some reviews in here (thank God), and I realised that you only have to use a really tiny amount. A little goes a very long way!
My shadows are so amazing with this primer, they sparkle and pop, and I keep the glimmer where it belong, instead of all over my face. I can not live without this product.
Oh lucky me, I finally scored a new tube of this in a swap just recently & my oh my how excited I am about this product! SOOO fun really makes my shadows stick & pop like no other! I love how it drastically reduces shadow fall-out so not as much product lands on your cheek & wastes. Looks fabulous with almost all my shadows. I think I found a staple here & may never go without. Very easy application, doesnít take much product at all so I imagine it will last forever. I must admit though the first time I tried it I thought I was going to do a smoky eye & had no clue how to use it & ended up with raccoon eyes (not in the cute way), it was quite funny. Glad I didnít write it off right then & actually researched how to use the product because I am in love! continued >>
This stuff is a god-send for glitter fiends like me! Works really well with loose pigments/glitters, to add some extra 'oomph' to your looks. You need the teeniest, tiniest dab, which means your tube of this will last forever. The downside is the shipping process Fyrinnae has. If you don't want to wait, you can always opt for the LA Splash Sealer/Base which is just as good as Pixie Epoxy!
Pixie Epoxy works so well for adhering sparkly and glittery eyeshadows. You do have to follow Fyrinnae's instructions to pat eyeshadows on top of this - if you brush them on in the normal manner, it makes a big sticky mess. I don't use this primer every day with every eyeshadow, but it's great with certain colors. I do wish that this came in a squeeze tube (I don't feel like the doe foot applicator is particularly hygienic, as you touch it to your face or hand in order to then pat it on the eyelids), but that doesn't keep me from reordering this. This tube lasts forever - I usually throw it away due to old age before it's actually empty.
this is a pretty good product and the best part is you just need to use a tiny dot and your eyeshadow will stick and stay in place, good quality product and would buy again just follow the instructions on how to apply it.
I got this in a sample size when I ordered some lip products and I'm very glad I got this. The lack of color works for being a base for every color eyeshadow and it works better than other eyeshadow primers I've tried. UDPP was a disappointment for me and ELF's mineral eyeshadow primer was too greasy to work.
I apply this either before or after concealer (since I have very thin and pasty skin and you can see all my veins and discolorations) and it works nicely both ways. It increases the wearing time and makes the colors of mineral eye shadows stand out nicely.
I would choose this over all the other eyeshadow primers out there, and I love the company. The themes and colorways of the eye shadow collections are awesome and the lip products are the same. Do it!
Even works on mattes!
Well, powdery ones. On a whim, I decided to try the thinnest layer over some primer potion. Blended shadow into the edges and packed on the lid color. Absolutely NO fallout and I had bright matte lids sans creasing or nyx J.Ps. I'm so tempted to stockpile this now. I'm in love.
LOVE my Pixie Epoxy! It gives my Goldilux and Tiara shadows from Sugarpill an amazing, foiled look. It also helps glitter stick to my lids. As many others have said, a little goes a looooong way. What else can I say that hasn't been said before? If you're into bright, shimmering shades, foiled looks or glittery looks, this is one product you can't go without!
