I usually use Urban Decay primer potion but thought I'd give this a go because of the good reviews. Unfortunely, I wasted my money because this product only works if you have dry eyelids. I have oily eyelids and this did nothing to prevent my eyeshadow from creasing. So I'm back to using UDPP which works great for me.
does what it says. doesnt irritate my eyes. dispenses well. overall good product. i would repurchase.
This is a great primer, I was using too much at first and only found out later that I needed just a little drop; like the size of this O for both eyes. There is only a little bit of fading at the end of the evening, but other than that there has been no creasing or movement of product. I would buy this again.
Edit: I'm starting to notice that with this on my shadow still fades near mid-day and under NYX jumbo eye pencils they still crease. Maybe it's my oily eyelids, but I'm thinking I should switch up to the UDPP.
*I have oily lids
Skin tone color
Lasts for about 6-8 hours
Only need TINY usage(dot size)
Need to shake/hit against palm(product will seperate)
TINY fading(only after about 7hrs)
Easy to spread across whole lid only using tiny amount. My makeup never moves once I've put this on!
I have oliy skin, & by the end of the day, my eye shadow has thoroughly settled into the crease of my lid. When I use this primer, I don't get any creasing at all. It smoothes on nicely, & isn't drying for me. I like that this product comes in a tube. Although I have have yet to try the Urban Decay primer, I don't much care for the packaging.
I don't like that it is a tube. Sometimes when I squeeze it, it won't come out and then I squeeze it again and a huge amount of product comes out.. grrr. Also this feels more liquid-y than UDPP. If you have dry lids I recommend using this, but if you have oily lids or are going somewhere hot I defineately recommend UDPP.
Update: I applied this at like 6 am and when i checked myself at 11 am it had already creased!! and my eyelids arent even that oily. Will def not repurchase I hate this stuff
This eye primer is the best. I use it all the time. I barely wear eyeshadow but when i do wear eyeshadow it really does last all day long. I put the primer on first and usually put a little bit of concealer on my lids b/c there's some discoloration and it stays on all day long even when i try to take it off with some make up remover, but i just gotta scrub and rinse a bit harder haha. I definitely will buy this again
I have EXTREMELY oily skin. Very oily. So, after a few hours my eyeshadow would crease horribly, and by the end of the day my entire lid would be absent of all eyeshadow except for a big ugly crease. This primer allows me to wear eyeshadow...and it actually stays on!!! For a long time I just stopped wearing shadow because there was no point, it all came off. For other skin types I have no idea if this product is good or bad..but for oily skin types..it is PERFECT. I have to use eye makeup remover to get my eyeshadow off! It goes on easy, my eyeshadow blends great with it, and a little bit goes a long way. WELL WORTH EVERY PENNY for me. I will be lost if it were to be discontinued! lol
I've never been too impressed with this product. But it seems to be a crime to wear eyeshadow without a primer, and I wouldn't recommend it. With that being said, it's just okay at doing what it says it does. To me, this and Urban Decay's Primer Potion (UDPP) do pretty much the same job for about the same price. I've had both for a pretty long time and I'd say that if you're trying to decide between the two, get Too Faced, just because UDPP dries out too quickly in my opinion and you can never use all of the product = waste of money. I honestly don't see a difference between the two. Hope this helps those of you who are stuck in the middle decide which one to get :)
