This is probably one of my top two primers . I love it !!!

I LOVE THIS!! Best Primer ever! It keeps shadow on, isn't heavy, doesn't cake, doesn't alter the shade of the shadow, even great to use under the lower lashline for extra insurance for liner and shadow.

Can't live without this primer! A full sized tube lasts me months! I use only a tiny bit under my eye shadow every day and it lasts ALL DAY in fact it looks exactly the same when I take my makeup off at night as it does when I put it on in the morning. It is honestly the only thing I have found that keeps the eye shadow on my oily lids and I will repurchase again and again :D the only slightly annoying thing I found is that the tip of the tube tends to crack around the bottom but this isn't a big problem for me.

I love this product! it is an excellent primer. My eyes are quite greasy and normally the eyeshadows last on me 2 or 3 hous, but when I use this primer my eyes are perfect. The eyeshadow lasts all the long and when I arrive home after a working day the eyes still look great!
I don't find it expensive as the tube lasts quite long as you just have to use a little amount of primer for every eye.
The only thing I don't like is the quality of the tube. After a few months the bottom of the tube broke. I think it happened while I was travelling on a plane, but it shouldn't be an excuse for breaking..
I will definetely will buy this product again!

I adore this eyeshadow primer. It is the first one I had ever used, and I chose it over urban decay's primer potion simply because I knew that I would be able to get the last bits of the primer out of the tube more easily than the hard plastic of the primer potion. My friend swears by the Primer Potion, and having tried it, I really see no big difference between the two besides the packaging.
Using Shadow Insurance makes my makeup last hours longer than it usually would, and completely eliminates any creasing I normally get within 2-3 hours of wearing my makeup. I have very very oily lids, so I cannot get away without using anything. Sometimes I like to wear just the primer because my eyelids get shiny throughout the day, and wearing the primer mattifys them.
I've been using the Shadow Insurance now for two or three years, and the only annoyance I've had with it is that I recently discovered if you have a tube for a long time (one tube lasts me about a year), the product starts to separate and you have to shake it to get it to mix or you'll get an oil-y substance coming out of the tube first (kind of like ketchup water before the ketchup comes out).
I would recommend this product to anyone who wears eye makeup at all, it absolutely is a staple. UD Primer Potion is also excellent, but I would always Shadow Insurance over it simply because it is easier to get all of the product out of the container. S.I is more economical than P.P for that reason alone.

It's so weird. I bought this when I found it cheaper than my usual UDPP. The first couple days I used it, I used Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy over-top because I was using super-glittery pigments. It seemed to perform about the same as my UDPP usually does (no creasing, good blendability. etc, etc.)
The next time I went to use it, I used it on it's own and did a daytime smokey eye with a couple UD shadows. I got crazy creasing after about 3 hours. Thinking it might be the shadows, which were new and I'd never used those specific colours before (sometimes softer shadows cause me trouble), I tried again today with shadows I've used before with UDPP and had absolutely no problems with. Again, creasing within a few hours. I don't have excessively oily lids, but they're not what you would call dry either.
It works and lasts fine if I use it to prime, then use a base (either Pixie Epoxy or a NYX jumbo pencil) over it, and follow by shadow, but just using it on its own with shadow over-top doesn't seem to work for me. I'll keep it to use when I plan on using a base as well, but I probably wouldn't buy it again.

Nars is by far so much better this stuff was stuck in all my wrinkles creases whatever you call it . Makeup didn't stick long either

The claim that it makes your shadows "brighter" seems like bullshit to me. It does, however, ensure that my shadow doesn't crease all day and definitely helps them last longer. A bit pricey, but for my eyelids, this product is an absolute necessity! Definitely worth the money.

Shadow Insurance is an okay product, but I don't find that it is worth the hype that it gets. It's certainly not worth the price. I have a huge tube of this stuff that I'm sure will last at least 1-2 years, but I would not repurchase it. I do find that I do get creasing some days with this product and it makes my lids look like lizard's skin. I'm off to try the one by Nars next.

This primer definitely rivals my Urban Decay Primer Potion. When i wear it my shadows look bright, stay all day, and never crease. What more could you want?
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Tan Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Works very well to keep shadow in place all day, but you have to be aware that if this product sits unused for a little while, it will separate in the tube, so make sure to shake it very well every time before use. I think this works a tiny bit better than the Urban Decay Primer Potion, but only marginally; they're basically the same and work as well as each other in my opinion.

This stuff actually does keep most of my eyeshadow on the eye for most of the day. I have oily skin and eyelids. At the end of the day I still do have some creased eyeshadow that has migrated on the eyelid and a strip of non-eyeshadow skin where the crease in my eye is. But it is not very noticeable. This is still a pretty good product as it does MOST of its job well. Good packaging and gives you a LOT of product for the price. Way better than UDPP!
EDIT: Actually after 1.5 months of using it, it doesn't work that well. Usually at the end of the day i have a thick crease of eyeshadow color on the fold of my eye, so it actually doesn't work. Its not really a problem though because you can't see it when my eyes are open.

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! :)

Ah the eternal war between this an UD. Honestly, i've had both and this wins HANDS DOWN. I can put my eyeshadow on, go off to college, some home in the evening and my eye make up will l look as if i just put it on. My only gripe is the price- at 24 euro, it's not as affordable as UD, the only place where it conceeds to Primer Potion.

I wore this primer non-stop for a full week under my eyeshadow and it was top notch, I'd say equal to Urban Decay's Primer Potion. However for the whole week that I wore it, my eyes were unbearably ITCHY! I thought maybe it was the eyeshadows I was using, also Too Faced from the Sweet Indulgences palette, however I tried them the following week with my UD primer and my eyes weren't itchy at ALL. I know it was this, as soon as I stopped using it, the itchyness went away. It was a great primer, but obviously something in it caused an allergy, maybe the Talc? Not sure :( Gave it to my sister, she had no problem.

I got this after some really good reviews on this place and others. I'm combination skin and have had problem with creasing for ages, and while powdering my eyelids before applying make-up, and other primers have kept my eye-make up in place for around 3-4 hours, but at the end of a long work day or a school day, it's usually a mess.
Out of habit I first used this and then put powder on top of it, but that wielded the same result - 4 hours in it was just a line in the crease.
When I started applying my eye shadow directly over it, I finally got the desired effect - my make-up stayed place for 8-12 hours, and possibly more than that, as I don't always note how long it's been since I put it on.
I'd definitely recommend it for those with the same problem. It's not the cheapest primer but it's one that's worked best for me so far, and it seems like a long-lasting product as well (my eyelids are small, so I don't need much primer).

This product is the only primer that made my eye shadow last all day and I have really oily skin. I have tried Origins, and several other brands and they don't work at all. In addition, the eye primer deepens the color of your eye shadow, not a lot but just enough.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
I cannot say enough good things about this primer. I've used so many different primers before, but my oily eyelids are ruthless. Without primer, my eye shadow creases within an hour. With a really good primer, I can last around 4, maybe 5 or 6 hours.
Shadow Insurance was on sale on Amazon so I decided to buy it on a whim. I'm so glad I did. It's been 12 hours since I did my makeup this morning, and my eye shadow has not creased one bit. It's still just as vibrant and pigmented as it was this morning.
I'm very happy.

OK, so I got this product on ebay and I'm really starting to think that I have a fake one because this product doesn't work at all on me! I have had this shadow insurance before and I can't remember disliking it so much. When I put it on my shadow creases just as fast as when I'm not using anything. I like the urban decay primer potion way better.

I got this as a sample in one of my Ulta purchases, and I really love the way it feels and how good it blends and does wonders for my eye shadow!
Will be buying the full sized one soon! :)
