I like this primer quite a bit. The only other primer I've tried is L'Oréal Decrease and is sucked. I've never tried UDPP or TFSI so I can't really compare it to anything HE. I have hooded eyes and this keeps my shadow in place quite well. I have a minor complaints against it. It is a little hard to blend eye shadows on. I have to be careful to apply this just where my creases are and no where else other wise it is hard to blend. Luckily this isn't too big a problem for me because I have a lot of skin between my lids and eye brows. It loses one lippie for blendability. The price is average for a DS product, about $10.00 but I got mine on sale. The packaging will make it hard to get the last little bit out so product will be wasted. I will buy this product again at least until I finally break down and buy UDPP or TFSI or I find something better.
This stuff is really good! I tried it thanks to EmilyNoel83 on Youtube and she was so right about how good this stuff is! Comparable to a more expensive primer. However, I wish the packaging were different. I can see it will be very difficult to get most/all of the product out since there is a very small opening that the wand goes through. So very good primer but not so good packaging. Love this! Brings out the color of your shadows and makes them stay all day- plus no creasing!!
one it lasted for 4 hrs tops.
the packaging is horrible
you have to use a ton for it to even last for 4 hrs.
the only good thing is that this lasted longer the TFSI and it was only 8 bucks.
YouTube Guru EmilyNoel83 was absolutely right on with her review of the Palladio Herbal Eyeshadow Primer. For me, this ranks up there with the likes of TFSI or UDPP. It goes on smoothly, really pops the colors of my eyeshadows and lasts all day with no creasing. My eyeshadow looks as good when I go to remove it at 11pm as it did when I first applied it at 7am. I also like the fact that it is herbal, as it makes me feel like I am doing something good for my eyelids. The $8 price tag at Sally Beauty Supply is nothing to sneeze at either. My only complaint with this primer is the Urban Decay-like packaging. The product comes in a mascara-like tube with the doe-foot applicator. Whereas UDPP can be depotted to insure that you are able to use all of the product, I don't see that being the case with the Palladio primer. The tube itself is very hard (not unlike a mascara tube) and I don't see how it can easily be cut open to remove all of the product. I think this would be much better served in a TFSI-like squeeze tube. However, I am extremely happy with the results I get from this primer and will continue to repurchase.
I would (and do) recommend this product to EVERYONE! I thought I would have to spend a good chunk of money on a good eyeshadow primer - and then I found this. I have been using it straight for a month now and my shadow never creases - and I've worn my makeup (I almost hate to admit this) for 14 hours in a row - and it still looked good! For a 8 dollar eyeshadow primer - I'm converted for life.
Where have you been all my life!? Finally! A primer that actually works on my greasy-greasy eyelids! I tried UDPP, TFSI, and Monistat to keep my shadows from creasing.This is very similar to UDPP. It applies with a little wand. Monistat *helped* but i was still creasy by the end of my work day. Popular primers were great for better color pay off, but that's it. So when I saw a review for this on YouTube by EmilyNoel83 and for the price ($8) I had to try it. I am SO glad I did.
Great color pay off with this. The only issue with this is that when it sets it becomes a tad tacky to the touch which I guess is what grabs onto color so well. Because of this it can make shadow hard to blend when applied alone over primer. I found that just sweeping powder over my lids takes care of that issue, though. (I guess a wash of a neutral/base color would work, too). I do my foundation and apply this primer and then set my foundation and this primer with powder.
This does not crease whatsoever. Even after a good hot sweaty workout, nothing budges. This was my test, actually. I wore it to the gym to see how it would perform under some seriously sweaty conditions. Didn't budge so that means it won't after a long night out!
1 lippie off only because of the packaging. Wish it was a squeeze tube or even that you could see how much product you have left.
I hope they never stop making this.....or it's back to creasy-greasy lids for me :(
