this product is useless for me. It cannot help the eye shadow stay longer on my eyelid. besides, it will melt into liquid when I squeeze it out of the tube. though it's cheap, it is useless too.

TFSI has a better packaging than UDPP by far. It is also quite tacky in comparison to UDPP and Estee Lauder's Doublewear shadow primer, so I have longer time to apply my eyeshadows, as I feel that once it has set, the eyeshadows do not look as vibrant.

I am really really dependant on TFSI to makesure my makeup lasts a long time as I have super super super oily eyelids (I sometimes have to use blotting sheets on them).

Lasts a long time, easy to use, perfect as e/s base...will definitely repurchase although I dont see my self running out in the next year or so (i've already had mine for 6 mths and use it everyday).

The one thing I do notice is that sometimes after a long day or under spotlights, my makeup melts faster and the TFSI does not really help it stay put...but then again I guess its just the heat rather than the product. I dont expect a product to last me 12+ hours without touching up!

i heard about TFSI and had to try it. best primer i have ever owned and used! this primer holds up and it doesn't make my shadows ruddy (like UDPP did with my BE shadows). it works well with all my shadows that i own! bottomline is that this works!

tip: product made separate a little so you have to shake it up. what i do is i hold the cap end and hit the tube on my palm a few times, holding the tube pointing down and then pointing up. and i use a small bead on each eye, maybe like 2-3mm in diameter.

The best e/s primer EVER! I prefer it over UDPP. It is easy to apply and the packaging is great. It holds the e/s for pretty long time without creasing whatsoever!!! I highly recommend it.

SI suck. This would be great for somone would with extremely oily eyelids. But my lids are so-so. When I put this on, it completely dry my lids out. I at least like a little natural oil on them. But this completely dry them out, and my eyeshadows be looking very dry. I find this to be only useful in the crease area where they get extremely oily, and looks good with my medium to brown shadows. But I can seriously do without this.

After some consideration I decided to buy this instead of the UD Primer potion: the tube packaging makes the most of the product (unlike UDPP's), its cheaper (barely), and it has more product (slightly).

Now that I've stated what drew me to it, on to the results!:
First of all, little bit goes along way when it comes to this product. The first time I used it I guess I put too much, because within a few hours my makeup was already creasing. The next time I used it I made sure to use less and voila! no creasing, the colors stayed on just as beautiful as the first moment I applied them throughout the whole day. I couldn't be happier.

Later I'll try the UDPP and tell you what i think about that :)

This is my favorite eyeshadow primer, this primer works better on me than uddp. This primer helps my eyeshadow from not creasing. And I like the packing better than the udpp.

This product is blah. I will not repurchase this. This is very creamy and easy to apply, but the formula feels very greasy on my skin. sometimes it felt like i was putting a half congealed oil on my eyes. This product also separates in the tube so every time you use please remember to squeeze it and kneed it together. I don't recommend it and actually wish i hadn't wasted my money.

I got a sample from Sephora. It's nice, but I probably won't get it again.
PROS: SUPER SMOOTH and creamy to apply
you only need a tiny dot for yoru whole lid.
It makes sure that you shadow doesn't crease!
CONS: FUNKY SMELL :/ it's like expired crayons.
doesn't do a a whole lot to brighten you shadow color.

OVERALL: I probably won't buy it again because I love my UDPP. But this one works well with a variety of eyeshadows whereas I notice UDPP only works with other Urban Decay eyeshadows. So that's my take :)
