By far one of the best purchases I've made. This product is amazing! Makes my pigments look fabulous. I just put a dab on each lid and blend it out. I pat on the colors and it makes them look foiled. I use it with my MAC mineralize shadows and all my loose pigments. It's seriously amazing. I don't have to wet my brushes anymore and applies much better than if I had. If you're on the fence, I say buy it!
WOW.........amazing product. makes glitter eyeshadows appear foiled when applied dry. Can't beat the price. will last forever due to the amount of product in the tube. fantastic product. must have if you like glitter shadows. amazing.
I use this to make Mac's glitters stick to my eye, I don't find it useful for eye shadows because it gets too sticky and make it hard to blend.
This stuff is a must buy. It makes eyeshadow looked foiled and you only need a tiny bit of pixie epoxy for it to work. I know it's supposed to be used over primer but it's a decent primer on its own.
This isn't designed as a primer (though reading other reviews it seems to work well for this purpose for other people). It's meant to intensify shimmer/glitter shadows. I find it works as well with pressed shadows as loose ones. Obviously it's great with Fyrinnae shadows, but it does amazing things to Urban Decay, Barry M, MAC... basically any shadow with a glitter or shimmer element. It doesn't do much for matte shadows.
I apply UD Primer Potion first, then layer this on top. You only need a tiny, *tiny* amount. The first time I used this, it made my shadow go on in clumps. I had a look at a couple of YouTube tutorials and realised this was because I'd applied far too much. Really, take the minimum you think you could possibly need to apply, then half it - that's how little you need to use.
I love this product and definitely consider it to be HG. Ridiculously cheap considering how long it will last!
HG! wow i cant believe i didnt buy this sooner! got my first order last night and played with it all night. left my eyemake up on over night (yes i know, NO NO but i wanted to see the staying power) and my eyeshadow looked AWESOME! while i agree its supposed to be a glue like item to hold your glitter shadows on there is nothing gluey about it. to me its more like a heavier duty silicone, firmer and somewhat mildly tacky but not gluey in the least and very easy to remove! for 7 bucks its worth a try? very HG for me!
Love this stuff for mixing my own liner. I take a slanted liner brush, dip it in the pot (the pot lasts forever) just enough to coat the tip. I dip it in the loose minerals and mix it on the back of the shadow cap. It makes a great liner and sticks all day, you do have to let it dry like a liquid liner though and be sure to wipe off your brush afterwards.
I love this stuff so much. Yes, it is intended to be used as a glue-like base for loose eyeshadows, mineral eyeshadows, and glittery eyeshadows, but it generally works well for ALL eyeshadows. It's a bit difficult to blend when you use this as an eyeshadow primer since it's SO sticky, but what I like to do is layer the Epoxy under a layer of champagne shadow and there you have it. It can be a bit hard to use initially, but all I do is dip a finger lightly in my sample pot (oh yeah, get the sample pot - it's tiny, but it's $3 and it lasts for about 6 months - yes, you read that right) and rub it gently over both lids. Wait 30 seconds, then apply shadow (or apply something nude like I do, then your regular shadow).
Your shadow will not budge. At all. All day. No creasing, no smudging, no nothing. A million times better than UDPP and a fraction of the price.
This is not a primer. It is an adhesive to make very glittery e/s stay in place and also to bring out the variances in the Fyrinnae shadows. I have found that it is also prompting me to add some of the fussier, glittery UD shadows back into my rotation. I'll be buying backups of this one.
The Pixie Epoxy quickly became a HG-item for me. It keeps the glitters in place and really makes eyeshadows POP. I love it, and wish I'd found it before I did.
