I have very oily eyelids and this primer stay for about 5 hours, it's not bad but just average. for this price is not worth buying - lime crime primer is better.
I got a mini version of this when i purchased one of my Sephora kits and I much prefer this product over Benefit's Stay don't Stray. Not sure how much this retails for or the packaging for the actual size though.
It is very easy to apply and does not leave any whitish cast unless you use too much product. Overall, it does a good job of preventing my eyeliners from smudging and makes my eyeliners last a couple more hours than without this primer. My bobbi brown eyeliner usually lasts for about 3.5 hours but with this it lasted for about 5 hours. I have really oily lids btw. As for eyeshadow, it does not prevent creases though and creases still appear after 3 hours.
Will likely buy it again unless i find a cheaper alternative.
I received this primer in the Naked palette by urban decay, and the first time I used it I found it a bit oily, but overall it had an easy application and came in a cute bottle. It kept my makeup on for most of the day, which was nice. However, it's individual price is a little high, especially when it's nothing special. I bought Sephora's basic eye primer and was much more impressed with that product; it was also 15 dollars cheaper. Overall, a cute name, nice bottle, but there are other products much more worth your money.
This is the only primer I've used, but I LOVE it! It's easy to apply with the lipgloss-like applicator. Just be sure to put on a very thin layer to avoid crease-accumulation or any greasiness. A little goes a long way! Also, since everything sticks to this like glue, its very important to put on in exactly the same places on both eyes. It's nude so by the time one eye is done you might forget where you put it. It makes any shadow dramatically bolder. It keeps shadow in place, no moving, no creasing. It lasts forever too, if I use this one morning, go out all night long, go to bed, the next morning my eye make up will still be exactly as it was 24 hours ago when I first put it on! How did I ever live without this??
I got this product thinking ok i will give it a try it and see how it goes. since everyone loves it already...except me..and i still feel the same way. The consistency was wierd and greasy. I didn't like it at all the eyeshadows creased anyways and totally not worth all the hype. I see how it can work for people with dry lids I have combination skin but this was just lame. Melted eyeshadow in about a 2 hours and just felt nasty on my eyelids.
Sometimes it takes going without a product to realize how well it works... I have hooded and oily eyelids. I use this every day, no matter what type of shadow I'm using (cream, pressed or loose powder). One day I decided to skip UDPP because I didn't think I would be out that long. I changed my plans and did end up staying out a lot longer than I orginally planned on. To make a long story short, I was so surprised at how much my shadow had creased after about 4 hours (I had on UD Mushroom btw). When I use this, I will sometimes have extremely minor creasing after about 10 hours, but usually nothing very noticeable. So, for me primer is a must have. I've had the same tube for about a year and a half. So it lasts a long time.
Now for the cons. Sometimes I feel as if this doesn't always dry completely transparent. I have medium/dark olive skin. Sometimes this will make my eyelids a little ashy looking, and I don't like the effect. I would think that this might be difficult for those with darker skin to use. continued >>
This was just like using a concealer on my eyes...I didn't find anything special about it. Wanted to love it bc I adore Urban Decay but sadly no. Just not worth the money. I could use a good concealer plus some pressed powder to get the same staying power if I chose to do so.
This was my first ever eyeshadow primer and I'm still using it years later because it is that good. I've tried other ones and I always prefer this over them. It smooths out the area, makes my eyeshadows pop and keeps my eye makeup on all day. I also love the appearance of the packaging but it can be a little tricky to get any product on the wand at a certain point, HOWEVER, you do not need a lot, they made a sqweezy tube version and all you have to really do is bend the wand a little and you should be able to get just the right amount for both of your eyes. I don't really have an issues with it personally, it doesn't bother me. <3 && yes when I run out, and that take a long time, then I will probably repurchase it again and again. continued >>
This primer is AMAZING! I originally bought it when i first started using makeup and will never stop buying it! Your eyeshadow does not crease on your eyes at all! Normally, if i dont put any primer on my eyes and just wana put on eyeliner and mascara, my eyelids get oily, but if i apply this primer it will last all day! its an amazing product and i have never tried a different eyeshadow primer because this one is probably the best of them all.
I don't use this every day, only on special occasions. Let's face it, with me rushing around every morning I don't have the time to mess around with primers. However, when I do use it I think it works. My shadow doesn't crease and it seems to stay on longer than usual. However, I do use a lot of pigmented, long lasting shadows and I have yet to find out if it works wonders for cheaper shadows that are more likely to fade.
Primer Potion is expensive and I don't think this item is a necessity but I do like it, especially for under the eyes before my concealer. I have really dark circles and it brightens the area and helps with the longevity of the concealer.
Although my lids are quite oily I'm not sure if I'd buy it again, it's a so-so product for me. I'd rather spend money on good quality eye shadows that I know work for me and don't fade. Three lippies is a good enough score.
