This my first and only eye primer, but I've never felt the need to try anything else. I have extremely oily eyelids and can't wear eyeshadow alone without it disappearing after an hour or two. When I put this on my eyeshadow lasts all day without any creasing whatsoever -- I'll never go without it again. It also works perfectly with Pixie Epoxy which I use with most of my loose indie eyeshadows. You really can't beat the price (I think I paid $2.99) and a tube lasts a really long time since you only need a little dab for both eyes. I'll continue to purchase as long as WnW makes it (hopefully forever!).

This is so much better than Urban Decay Primer Potion (UDPP), which used to be my favorite. I also used to used and love MAC painterly paint pot, but this fergie primer takes the cake. The Fergie primer is a pale flesh tone color, much less orange than the UDPP. It is a little tackier than UDPP which makes glittery/shimmery eyeshadows last longer too. I feel like my eyeshadows blend better when I use this and my eyehshadow still looks amazing after a 12hr shift. I paid $3.99 for mine, which is a steal. Love, love, love, new holy grail!! P.s. I have had mine awhile and it lasts a long time, mine has never dried out.

This works better for me than Urban Decay's primer. I was on the hunt for a dupe for that because- let's be honest- it was hard to justify the cost on that little amount of product. Sorry Urban Decay! I stumbled upon this and thought for a buck, hey, why not? And I'm in love. My eyeshadow stays on all day and doesn't crease at all, not even in the outer corners of my eye. Such an affordable product for such amazing quality. I'll never go back from this!

I've tried various eye primer products including NARS, TF, and some other cheaper stuff (also a few Japanese things), but to be honest I kind of feel like the WnW Fergie primer works about the same.

To compare what I remember of the three, I find WvW Fergie primer to be dryer than both NARS and TF - I used to use TF the most after finding that I dislike the doefoot applicator on the NARS. TF, I noticed, tend to separate easier and even with massaging the tube to try to get it to recombine, the output would come out liquidy and thin. I'm unsure if this causes the product to get not as good? I definitely noticed a decrease in performance in the TF after about half the tube (around when it starts to separate). In the case of NARS back when it was on doefoot, as we all know, we'd end up not being able to pick up product from the sides thus it was very wasteful.

With the WvW Fergie, I think it went the opposite direction - instead of getting more liquidy due to separation, it's gotten drier as time went by. I'm pretty sure when I first got my tube it was a bit more liquidy/creamier, but I think a general tend to slightly more dry is pretty normal for a cream product. And I've honestly been using the same tube for so long that it doesn't make me go "oh ugh, it's dry already" (compared to, say, a product I've used for a month and it's already drying).

That said, while I'm sure there is a slight decrease in performance, it still works very excellently and I rarely notice any drastic decrease in staying power on my eye makeup. Basically, when you consider how long you can use a single tube, price per tube, price per oz, and performance over time - this thing would rate muuuuuuuuch higher than the higher end products if only because usage and price ranks much better. Even the higher priced products decrease in performance and separate/dry out, so that's always going to be same.

That said, the best part about this primer is that you can use it for a really long time. TF, as I mentioned, tend to separate within a few months. This product, I find, does no separate. For the first time in my long makeup using career, I'm actually approaching the very end of my first WvW Fergie eye primer tube. I've never approached this with TF before (always tossed due to separating and getting oily looking liquid all over).

As soon as I'm back in the US, I'm purchasing a second tube of this because it's THAT GREAT. there's no point in buying anything more expensive because I know how well this works, and how long it'll last without spoiling/separating/drying out.

I will mention that I think in general this is a thicker product than the other brands (potentially a design decision?), however I never had problems blending this out or becoming patchy - i squeeze out a tiny dollop and pat on lid as the same way i use all primer (no rubbing), and it dries completely clear.

This is by far the BEST eyeshadow primer I have every used. It keeps eyeshadow in place after all day and all night and will not budge.

The best thing about it is the price! I can never buy another expensive eye primer again, this stuff is amazing!

I may have a holy grail! I have slightly dry lids and have been using udpp or too faced shadow insurance until I found this. The tiniest speck is enough for both eyes & hangs onto my shadow all day. I swear it is a dupe for the too faced primer - I see absolutely no difference. Very happy with this and I think it's well worth trying at $3 or $4.

This primer works just as good as any high end primer. It makes the shadow stay put for the majority of the day and it is very affordable. You only need a little bit. The only problem I had was the few times the product ingredient separated and a little bit of clear product squeezed out but you can get past this if you squeeze a little more until you get the product. Not a big deal since I got it on sale at Walgreens less than $5 and have used it for a year now. The only minor issue I had was there was some patchiness but I think that is only if you apply too much. For the price and what it is I give it full lippies. If there was anything that I felt needed to change to make the product better or more interesting is that I think they should make this product in different shade formulas so that certain shadows can be more enhanced without looking for more things to use as bases.

I tried this on a whim and I'm surely glad I did. I've been loyal to UDPP for 9 years and wasn't able to get to Sephora to pick up a tube when I ran out. The texture of the Take on the Day primer is quite similar to TFSI, which I actually strongly dislike. When I saw the similarity I wasn't very hopeful. Thankfully that's where the similarities end. I do have to use more product than I do with UDPP, but that's ok. My shadow lasts through 12 hours at work. It isn't as vibrant as when i first applied, but 12 hours is a lot to ask for. I will always have this on hand.

I purchase and try a lot of eye primer. I was excited to see the positive reviews for this Fergie primer because of the fantastic price point. I actually only wore this a couple times because I couldn't stand this primer.

PROS:
The packaging is lovely, like the Too Faced but better because the cap actually allows you to stand it up which would be great when getting to the bottom.

CONS:
- The product itself is extremely creamy, the texture reminds me of a sunscreen. When the product finally does dry it becomes very patchy on my skin and looks scaly. I wore this all day indoors and one day in the heat and it looked the same in both conditions, a flaked up mess.

I think for the price there is no loss in trying this. I wish it worked but it didn't... at all.

I'm in love with this primer! I have extremely oily skin and this primer does what it says! My eye shadow stays on ALL day with no creasing. Even into the late evening hours. I've tried more expensive brands and this primer is just as good, if not better! So go out and buy this!!! Can't beat the price.
