this primer is great!
I'll go as far as applying a little bit to my waterline, letting it dry, then applying my eyeliner to my waterline, and it actually STAYS PUT the whole night.
right on my waterline. without the primer, my eyeliner on my waterline smudges so bad in only about 20 minutes, so that there's not even any kind of line there anymore.
so it's not JUST for eyeshadow, trust me!
plus the little bottle is so cute and nice looking, I love it.
This product is amazing! It makes eye makeup last all day without moving, creasing or smudging, At the end of the day your eye makeup looks like you just put it on. I have not found any other primer that works even half as good or as long. However, the packaging sucks, there is no way to get all of it out of the tube or to see how much is left.
But I will still buy it anyway even though half of it gets wasted because it is just that good.
Dried my eyes out SO bad. The top lid was flaky and the bottom under eye had massive wrinkles. Took like a week of exfoliating and moisturizers just to get back to normal. I bought this for a Christmas party to look great, instead I looked like I was 10 years older. UGH!
I LOVE this product!! I have oily lids and this product is great and makes my eyeshadow last all day until i wash it off. I just don't like the bottle because you cant use 100% of the product.
I love this product so much. I have very oily eyelids and my shadows always used to crease 1/2 way through the day. Especially creme shadows and MAC pigments. I heard about this and decided to give it a try. I love this stuff. My shadow now lasts all day and never creases. Even creme shadows stay put with this stuff. It also makes the colors pop and stay much truer to how they look in their pots. The packaging is cute but not practical. You miss out on so much product because it is all stuck in the bubbles part near the top where the brush can not reach. I found some good tutorials on youtube though that show you how to get all the extra out. I would def. recommend this to anyone with oily lids or just anyone who wants their shadow more vibrant. I will be repurchasing again when I run out of this one.
For those who don't wanna spend the $16 on this stuff L'oreal makes a primer called decrease that works well too. I believe its about $9-10.
There are very few products that I actually finish and this is one. I love what it does for my eye makeup. I have oilier lids and eye shadows would crease and never be true to their colour. This little baby cured that. A little anecdote to further exemplify its magic.... I kickbox and I forgot to remove my eye makeup before I began to workout. My eye makeup did not move....no streak, no smudge, no creasing.... the colour was still bright and beautiful!!!
My gripes are few and pretty much the same as everyone elses... the packaging and the price. UD really needs to take a look at revamping how the product is dispersed. I shouldn't have to cut open a bottle in order to remove the last bit of product.
Other than that, awesome!
UPDATE: the bottom of this pimer comes off easily. I just stuck a pair of scissors into the bottom until it bent and cracked. used the same scissors and cut some slits down the tube and voila. Used Q-tips and starte scooping! MAN for something that appeared to be FINISHED i have a nice lil container FULL of primer
I honestly thought this worked at keepin my shadows on longer...
I have noticed lately that my eyelids have been very dry and i thought it may be because of prolonged eyemakeup. I will try the smashbox primer see if it makes a diff.
this stuff is mucho expensive and the packaging sucks. I dont think i want to waste a good knife tryin to cut it open for all the un reachable product.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product.
I bought it after watching so many makeup tutorials on youtube that used this before applying eyeshadow.
I've used it for the first time today and my eyeshadow which normally fades and creases after a few hours on my oily skin has remained vibrant and crease free!!!
What have I been doing all these years without it.
I will definitely be using this and repurchasing again and again.
I managed to finally get my hands on it and it works.
My lids are very very oily and i need to use this WITH a creaseless eyeshadow for whatever (liner, shadow etc) to stay on my lids crease free and smudge free for at least 12hours in a humid country..
but it's the only thing i've found that works so far... although i've not tried TFSI.
My main gripe with this is.. the packaging (big surprise there eh?!)... I would only not consider getting this again because of the packaging.
I have been using this product for about seven months now and I could not be without it. I am typing this review nearly 12 hours after applying my eyeshadow and there is no creasing. Admittedly the colours are not as vibrant as when I applied this morning but are still very evident. Being a dark skinned woman i have always had to use highly pigmented eyeshadows for any real colour pay off. However since using the primer potion I am able to use less pigmented colours as the potion does make them more vibrant. It really is a genie in a bottle!! My only criticism is the packaging. It makes it hard to use all the product without having to 'saw' it in half as it starts to run out. Yet such is the difference this product makes to the staying power and vibrancy of my eyeshadow I am willing to put up with it for now. Urban Decay need to change the packaging though to get 10 out of 10 for this product.
Sorry the review should have read 16 hours, not 12 hours!
