Easy to apply and you need almost no product at all so this tiny tube lasts forever! It's white but when you apply it it's not visible. I have oily eyelids but this prevents streaking and fall outs. No smell, no mess and a hygienic tube. I don't have anything bad to say about this!
I can't believe how bad this stuff is. I have very oily lids and my shadow always creases if I don't use a primer. I use both TFSI and UDPP and I'm happy with both of them. I saw that this Mary Kay stuff had some good reviews so I ordered a tube on eBay.
This stuff creases like no tomorrow on me. I did my face for work at about 5:30 in the morning. I checked my face at work at 9:30 and wowaza...Crease City!
This does not work well on oily lids.
Didn't care for it. I ran out of my urban decay primer ( my godsend) and I had a Mary Kay consultant that I get my moisturizers from so I decided to try the eye primer. Hated it!! It's very thin in consistency and has to dry before you put on your eyeshadow. With the urban decay.. its creamy and you can immediately put your eyeshadow on. As far as the staying power, I'd say a 3 out of 5. Maybe I'm hooked on UD primer but I still didn't care for the mk one.
I started using this 2 days ago. So I am on day 3. I put my makeup on everyday at about 7:45-8 am before work and don't take it off until usually about 8 or 9 pm. I don't mind touching up a little during the day but I hate feeling like I have to re-do my face several times a day. I have been using concealer as a primer for my shadow since I was 15 years old and never even thought to try any actual primers. I felt like concealer was doing the job just fine. I was wrong. My shadow went on more true to the color in the pot with less product. It has not creased or smeared or moved and I have heavy lidded, deep set eyes so not creasing is a feat in itself.
I was tempted to put some concealer on over this because it goes in clear and I have purple/pink pigmentation and visible veins on my eyelids. That is why i started wearing concealer on my eyelids in the first place. I thought that might show with a clear primer. This even bein clear really diminished it a lot by itself and my shadow was able to cover it well. Overall I am completely impressed. I will be repurchasing if I ever run out. You only need a tiny bit and the tube seemed small at first, but seeing how much I actually have to use it will last me a very very long time.
I buy a new tube of this every December...and it lasts until the next December...and I use it pretty much every single day. It take very little of this product to do the job for me--half of a pea sized amount for both eyes. I will say that this is the ONLY Mary Kay product I use. It works really well--feels weightless, prevents creasing, and really makes your eyeshadow look fresh all day. It does take about two minutes to fully dry, but that is the least of my concerns. I have had no desire to try anything else--even the famous UD primer potion!
This is the only primer I use on my eyes. I've tried several different brands and not saying some were not good, just more expensive with no better results than this one. This is the first eye primer I ever used and I've used it for about 20 years...enough said!
This is the BEST/ONLY primer I will put on my eyes. Its perfect. Its not tinted, just comes out like a lotion (white & creamy.) A little goes a long way with this stuff and your eyeshadow won't budge ALL day!!! Im not a huge fan of MK products because their, 'please have a party' or 'start selling MK' sales girls are so damn pushy. But i do always have to have this product. I believe its only $12. So its pretty inexpensive. continued >>
A friend of mine recommended this primer but after a few days of using it I noticed the skin on my eyelids was starting to get red and irritated. I stopped using it and it took a couple weeks to clear up. Hoping it was a fluke I tried using it again last night as a base to play with some new colors. Woke up this morning to red and puffy and this evening the skin is back to flaky. Needless to say, I'll need to find a primer and probably won't be passing along the recommendation.
This is one of the very few eye primers that you will find that has hygienic packaging. Other primers have a doe foot applicator, which just dips germs back into the product. With this type of packaging, you squeeze out fresh, clean, product every time.
The product itself works well. It goes on smooth. It takes awhile to dry. If you put eyeliner on while it's wet, it just smudges and doesn't stick. I like to put the primer on first, then brush my hair or whatever while it's drying.
I have a lot of problems with eye irritation, and it's nice to find products that are clean and easy to use.
Love it. The packaging is really small but you only need a half a pea size to cover BOTH of your eyes. It makes my eyeshadow last all day with no creasing :)
