Wow I'm so glad I bought this product!!! I've dealt with oily eyelids for YEARS and always get that annoying creasing of shadows... I've tried other eye primers, like ones by Clinique, Paula Dorf, and one from MAC that works decently... but this one is the best!!! It does smell a little funny, but oh well. It works like a dream! No creasing! I did TWO workouts yesterday while wearing this, and my shadow looked like it wanted to crease- but yet, IT DIDNT! And i'm talking sweaty red faced workouts... so rock on! I'm a fan!!! ps. my sisterinlaw said that sometimes it can make your eyelids feel a little dry... I haven't experienced that. Maybe because I'm so oily to start with :)
I really like this product. It prevents my eyeshadows from creasing on my oily lids while still allowing me to blend them. It also makes my eyeshadows more vibrant because they have something to stick onto. I also like the squeeze tube packaging because it's very utilitarian and sanitary. HG status for me.
HG product! I love this stuff. I wear loose mineral eye shadows & this stuff keeps my eye shadows in place all day long, even when I am working with dogs or working outside.
It doesn't irritate my eyes either, which is a big plus for me.
This is my new HG eye primer. It lets me actually blend my shadows nicely, and it doesn't make my eyelids flake off! IT'S A MIRACLE. The packaging is really convenient, too. I see myself buying this again and again when I run out in the future. Lovely product!
I dont know I tried this product today and it made my shadow blend weird. I had to reapply my makeup like 4times, I was getting frustrated because it just wasn't working!! Maybe I was having a bad makeup day! Who knows but reguardless... Im sticking to my MAC paint pots!
I was a devout user of UDPP for several years until I ran out one day and decided to give this a try. The consistency is a bit creamier and I like that it comes in a tube, much more sanitary than UD. Like expected, my makeup lasted all day but towards the end of the day, my eyeshadows didnt seem as vibrant as they were when I applied them in the morning. You only have to use a little bit of product so the little bottle will probably last you a pretty long time. I would probably repurchase again if the store is out of UDPP, since that is still my HG of eye shadow primers.
This stuff is great! It won't make your, "color pop," or do a pony-show trick, but it will keep your shadow from settling in your lines and creases and that's what it's supposed to do. My shadow lasts all day, even on my oily lids and that's with moisture under it. I just love it and would use it over and over again. I always have one out and a spare waiting in the wings.
This primer is really great. It definitely helps with creasing and fading my eyeshadow looked the same late at night as it did when I first put it on! I love udpp but the packaging is horrible this packaging is much less wasteful. Otherwise I love this and udpp I like this packaging way more.
I've used UDPP for a few years, the regular version and sin version, and find that I really like Too Faced Shadow Insurance more, and probably because the packaging is so much more logical. I never understood why Urban Decay decided to make it impossible to get any product out of their Primer Potion bottles. This is easier and more hygienic. If anything, get this product for the hygienic reason. lol. The consistency seems about the same as UDPP to me, and it keeps my shadow and liner in place very well. I will never go back to UDPP.
I have had this for a while and have used it, but since I don't wear heavy eye makeup very often I didn't have a chance to really test this stuff till Halloween. I was doing a very frosty 80s inspired makeup look. Electric blue liner with a heavy frosted blue lid. This primer kept that crazy blue shadow and liner on and vibrant all night! Through drinking and dancing and sweating and probably rubbing my eyes by mistake at least once! I was very impressed. I checked it when I got home and it really looked the same as when I put it on 6 or 7 hours ago.
I also discovered that you can dab a tiny bit of this over your light daytime makeup and then go right over it with your evening makeup without having to wash anything off. I did this for my office Christmas party last week and it worked great and my smoky evening makeup stayed on all night!
Last but not least, I have to say it...FINALLY someone has put shadow primer in a useful package! I am all for fun, pretty packaging, but you still need to be able to get it out of the tube. Sorry UD but Too Faced has outsmarted you on the primer front.
