OMG! I can’t believe how much better this works than UDPP. Of course I never liked UDPP because I couldn’t blend my eyeshadow when I used it – so I was using LG Spackle – but Spackle started it irritate my eyes and made them water. I tried this from a sample for Sephora. This is eye primer is easy to spread and doesn’t tug at the eye area. I had no problem blending it at all – and it was super easy to blend my eyeshadow over it. It brightened the eye area and helped to conceal my dark circles. It made my eyeshadow POP! Super vibrant! But best of all? I’ve been wearing it for 8 hours (so far) and NOT ONE CREASE and my eyeshadow is still there and looks great. This is so hard for me to believe because I have the oiliest eye lids on the planet and with UDPP and LG Spackle – my eyeshadow was all melty and had become one color by 11am every day. So frustrating. But with this – so far, my eyeshadow is awesome AND my eyeliner is still there too! I’m stocking up on this! LOL
I was concerned about adding color to my eyelids with this. It actually makes my eyes much brighter though and the dark circles don't appear to be so obvious when using it.
When going to remove makeup wiping it off with water won't work, it stays on almost making shawdow waterproof.....but it will smear or come off if you rub it with your fingers or hands. I guess the oil on our hands is what it takes to remove it(smear).
I really like it and would use it again. Just keep a tiny jar available. It comes in a pump like bottle which keeps it really fresh but pumps out too much (enough to apply twice) . I pump it once into a tiny jar w/ lid , use what I need then use the extra in jar the next day. It works well like this.
YUCK!!! My lids are greasy as hell after 3+ hrs. YUCK!!
I got a sample of this at sephora after going almost every week to find a full coverage concealer n went hm used it n fell in love w it had to go get this item I love it helps my concealer stay on all day I'm a stylist n I don't like to reapply my makeup throught the day this deff helps it makes my concealer stay matte n keeps it in place I gave it 3 stars on the quality cause the pump makes it to come out way too much for 1 use n it's not like I can put it back in the bottleso I'm waisting allot of product pleAse fix this somehow cause I can't live without this ;) lov it
I got a sample at Sephora. I'm impressed.
Even that aplication is kind of tricky because the product is a little bit dry and not so smooth on the skin, apply 3 tiny dots, path all over the area you need to cover and let it dry. Then, i follow with my ONE AND ONLY Boeing concealer. Oh well, i always thought that Boeing Concealer works perfect itself, but this is a plus. LOVE IT. I also like Boeing combined with Hi-Beam, and Boeing combined with Oh-La-Lift. I'm 45 yrs old. Always being told if i'm 35 & under ... and this primer do wonders.
I received a travel size of this from Sephora. I'm used to UDPP and compared to that, this stuff is not great at all IMO. My e/s looked dull as if I didn't use a primer at all, unlike when I use UDPP. The only thing I did like about it was the nude color.
I was on the fence with this product. But I really like it after using it for a couple of days, before I would use the erase paste to cover my dark circles but this product works great. I like that I don't need a lot and how well it blends in.
I bought this product yesterday and tried it today for the first time. I LOVE IT! I have oily lids and dark circles and I have tried many products in the market, UDPP, TCIP but this one has better staying power and covers my dark circles as well (no need for a concealer)!! My eye liner has stayed in place so far, there are no lines and no creases....its been 5 hours so far! I will post again in couples of weeks with an update!
i was really excited about this product when i first learned about it before it actually came out...my work provided me with one as gratis so i was excited to try it...first the pump is not that amazing..you get so much out that you feel like your wasting it....the next time i used stay dont stray i just pumping it a little...
in comparison to tfsi and udpp, i think sds is not as creamy as tfsi and udpp..sds seems a little watery to me...i used sds as my e/s primer and under my concealer...i did like that sds seems to brighten around my eye area and it really held my concealer...(i have been having a problem with my concealer moving..and this helped)...but for e/s i dont think it did much...i didnt feel like my e/s was holding very well and it did crease a little...not much though....
so i dont think i would buy this again and im probably not going to use it under my e/s..only under my concealer
I asked for a sample of this from Sephora as I'm a noob to using an eyeshadow primer. The sales girl recommended this one so I took it home to try out. I have really oily eye lids and I'm used to my eyeshadow looking good for the morning when I go to work but after lunch it's pretty much gone and what's left is creased up.
Overall, I wasn't too impressed with this primer. I still got creases and it didn't hold the shadow on my lids. I would have to say that I get a few extra hours more than using no primer, but that makes it not worth buying for me.
