I really like this! It keeps my eyeshadow put all day, no creasing at all. Even if I sleep with it on it still looks great in the morning. My only complaint is that sometimes it comes out of the tube very runny. It's $18, which is expensive, but well worth it!

UPDATE 1/5/12: With time, I have changed my mind. TFSI feels a bit too slick when I apply these days. And now that UD Primer Potion has changed it's packaging, I don't have that scratchy doe foot going against my eyelid. All this time I thought it was the product and it turns out it was the delivery. Who knew!?!? Now I prefer UDPP as a happy medium between the slickness of TFSI and MAC Paint Pots.
ORIGINAL POST: I have tried UDPP, ELF, Paint Pots and this is by far my favorite. It goes on with just one tiny drip and a concealer brush. It makes all my shadows go on smooth and buttery. It is not wet and messy like UDPP or as pasty as Paint Pots. It is the perfect happy medium. And I love how it blends on my skin...heavenly!

This eyeshadow primer is amazing. I have always used a cream eyeshadow for a primer. I was using MAC's Paint Pot and I was happy with it. However, I hate that I'm not able to use the entire pot before it dries up. I started to research for a new base and decided it was either this or Urban Decay Primer Potion. I did not like UDPP because it was too thick and drying. I love Shadow Insurance because it's silky and easy to apply on my eyelids. Unlike MAC's PP, I don't have to worry about even application or else the eyeshadows will look blotchy. Only a small amount is needed to help eyeshadows last all day without creasing. I live in Florida where the humidity is horrible but I never have to worry about creasing with this product. I love that I get the true color of my eyeshadows when using this primer. I've read about this separating in other reviews so I always give this a good shake before use to prevent any issues.

I need an option that says ‘HELLS YEAH!’ under ‘Would you buy this product again?’, this is FANTASTIC!
I have atrociously greasy eyelids that caused me so much pain. I took to putting on 2 layers of cream eye shadow (from Bobbi Brown or MAC) then putting on 2 layers of powder eye shadow (also from MAC or Bobbi Brown) just so I could make it through the work day without my gel eyeliner transferring. But even then, I would still be paranoid, and would often see that the grease on my lids has penetrated through all 4 layers of eye shadow and was beginning to melt my liner too.
I voiced my pain to a friend who had recently graduated from a makeup course and she recommended this, and since then I have never looked back! Who knew that something so simple could change my life?
It comes in a tiny tube but lasts forever, given how little you use each time. I have noticed that if I don’t use it for a few days, some clear liquid comes out along with the product itself, but if you shake it before you squeeze it out then it’s fine. You only need a teeny tiny amount each time, just enough to cover your lid, and that lasts the entire day. The product itself is a light beige colour and the consistency is quite thin. The product is a light beige colour but becomes transparent once you blend it into your lid.
I can’t imagine my life without this product, I bulk buy this because I’m terrified it will be discontinued!

A great eyeshadow primer. I have used UDPP, but it dried up real fast and so I decided to try this, glad I did :)
The packaging is great, a tube you can squeeze so you can control the amount of product you want. I've had mine for over a year and it's still going strong :)
It keeps my eyeshadow in place, haven't had any creasing in the least. Definitely recommend this product!

I don't know what I did with my life before I discovered the magic of eyeshadow primer. Too Faced is my absolute favorite amongst all the brands that I've tried. It goes on smoothly and makes my eyeshadows and eyeliner last forever. I have even used this under the dreaded cream eyeshadows and NYX Jumbo Pencils without any signs of creasing! The colors don't fade or crease and the tube is so much more desirable than the doe foot applicator that comes with most eyeshadow primers. You can get every drop of the product out and apply just as much as you need. I think if Too Faced were to come out with other colors of their SI it would be fantastic and I would probably buy them all.

I really with there was a spot to put "maybe repurchase". My only complaint with this is that it separates. I try shaking it up but it doesn't totally fix the problem. I just have to hold the tube with the opening upward and the solid part floats to the top so when I squeeze the "solid" part comes out. I haven't finished the tube so I don't know how much at the bottom is liquid so I won't know how much is unusable until then. I use a sheer coat of NYX jumbo pencils if I need a colored base and that works really well. I've had zero creasing with doing that. I've tried this one one eye with a MAC paint on the other and I couldn't tell a difference throughout the day between the two. I want the think TFSI looked a little better at the end of the day, but that may have been in my head. But this is a great product and works really well. I really can't decide if I like this or MAC paints better. Price for product, this is cheaper than MAC though.

I bought this after reading many reviews from both UDPP and this shadow insurance. I like the packaging because it comes in a tube versus the UDPP. More sanitary and it does help to prolong the eyeshadow from creasing on my oily lid. But after using it for a month or two, the stuffs inside started to separate. Am I supposed to massage the tube, so the stuffs get mixed together?? It's very gross seeing the stuffs came out with oil and cream. And usually only expired cosmetics products would do that. I cannot buy this again and am switching to NARS.

This stuff is AWESOME!!! In terms of how it works I would say this and Urban Decay Primer Potion are equal but the packaging is what makes it better. You don't waste anything and you need so little that it lasts forever!! I bought mine in October or November and I'm not even close to done and it's now August. So even though it's a wee bit pricey I'm probably only going to need to buy one per year so it's really not pricey when you think of it that way...and I WILL be repurchasing :) It's really fantastic stuff my eyeshadow doesn't budge when I'm wearing this and it's nice and creamy goes on so smooth on my eyelid. Definitely recommend!
