I have extremely oily lids, and I can guarantee with absolute certainty that any eyeshadow I apply will crease and fade throughout the day, irregardless or brand or finish. Eye primer for me, is an absolute necessity. I have just repurchased my second tube of Shadow Insurance... can you believe my first tube lasted almost TWO YEARS?!
Simply put, itís a spectacular product. It does exactly what itís supposed to do, and I really canít live without it!
For a shimmer eyeshadow addict, Shadow Insurance acts like an anchor for my most glitteriest shades, and keeps them in place until itís time to take my make up off, but also throughout the day ensures my eyeshadow doesnít lose itís lustre.
I use this with my MAC, Urban Decay, Too Faced & LíOreal shadows and the result is always the same, no creasing, no matter the brand, they just last and last and last!
All I need is a tiny bead sized amount for each eye, which I apply with a synthetic concealer brush and then blend with my fingers. It feels Ďtackyí on my eyelids as soon as itís applied, probably due to the silicone, so I leave it for 30 seconds before applying and blending my eyeshadow as normal. Itís supposed to be Ďflesh colouredí, but once blended on the eyelid, is virtually invisible.
I am also hugely impressed with the packaging. Itís just a simple squeeze tube but that to me equals a more hygienic product, and it makes it easy to get all of the product out without wasting it.I can see this lasting for at least a good few months, but once it finishes, I will definitely repurchase! I love any long-wearing make up productÖ my foundation lasts all day, and thanks to Shadow Insurance, my eye shadow definitely does too! :)
