I love this! Although I'm truly a UDPP girl, when I was in a pinch and unable to get a hold of UDPP, I bought this. And I wasn't disappointed! It definitely did it's job just as well as UDPP for me. I used to favor it because it came in a squeezy tube, then UD switched to one. Honestly I would take either primer and be completely happy with it.

Love this primer! Working at Sephora I have used and played with everything. This is my absolute favorite, goes on smooth, the packaging makes it very easy to squeeze out tiny amounts, and doesnt add any unwanted colour or sheen. Makes my product last all day without budging, and with my hooded eyelids thats nearly impossible!

LOVE this primer! It's so much better than UD Primer Potion IMO. I like the texture more, as opposed to UD's drier consistency. With this, I don't feel like I'm tugging at my eye lids like I did with UD's. Keeps my shadow in place all day, love it!

This prevents creasing which for me is only an issue when I wear creme products on my lids, it also makes my shadows pop, so it basically does what a good primer should! It also stops my nyx jumbo eye pencil from smudging all over the place and creasing, which was a real problem for me!

I was incredibly disappointed with this product. After reading so many great reviews and hearing so much hype over it I caved and bought it about 2 months ago (therefore I've had a decent amount of time to test it).
UDPP has been my go-to primer for donkeys years and has never done me wrong however TFSI just couldn't take the heat when it comes to my oily eyelids.
After a measly 3 hours my smokey eye had been reduced to a single greasy brown line in my crease and my eyelids looked like I had painted a thin lair of oil onto them. Not a good look. I never have experienced this with UDPP, which has kept my past smokey eyes immaculate for hours on end.
I also felt that the consistency of TFSI was much too liquidy and set too quickly to allow for a decent adhesive surface for eyeshadows to stick to in comparison to UDPP which gives a somewhat 'tacky' finish as well as sufficiently concealing any veins/discoloration on the eyelids (which TFSI offers none of).
Overall I was very let down on this product and in the future would rather save my money and purchase UDPP which is only marginally more expensive but of immensely higher quality.

This is my holy grail of makeup products, I got it as a gift from a friend over two years ago, and I still have about half the tube left even though I use it everyday!
I have very oily shiny eyelids, and love putting bright pigmented colors on my eyelids, and this stuff really helps make sure it doesn't crease. At the end of a normal day, my eye shadow looks like I freshly applied it.
I have went to raves and been out in very hot weather while wearing this, and it gave me minor creasing but not enough that anyone would notice.
I recommended this to my mother who works a very busy hospital job, and she thanked me because it worked well for her too!
Usually I'm not that open about spending that much on makeup, and for how much it APPEARS to be (But the tube lasts longer than you would ever think!), but I would DEFINITELY buy this again!

This product does what it says it does without burning my sensitive eyes. I also like to use it on my brow line to keep eyebrow pencil on longer (without smudging off), especially in hot, humid weather.

This is a great primer. I have used it for at least a year, and have had no problems with it. The only negative I have to say is I kept it in a container in front of my window and it got rather soupy, but that was my fault. After I moved it away from the sun and used it for a few days it went back to its original consistency. The price I think is rather fair since it lasts so long and you pay for the quality. Two face does not test on animals and some of their products are paraben free. I would buy this product again.

This is my HG eye shadow primer for the following reasons:
1) a little goes a long way.
2) it goes on smooth and absorbs quickly (i found that the urban decay and lorac primers are a little too thick for me)
3) love that the product is a squeeze tube so you can get it all out (vs urban decay's original potion that you couldn't get the last drop out with the wand, but they've now caught onto a squeeze tube)
4) really does what it says. I haven't had any shadow or line smudging in my crease and it really brings out the shadow color vs when I don't use it

I've only tried a few eye shadow primers, I figured they did what they were supposed too, the kept my shadow from creasing and held my shadow on longer, then my friend made me a make up goodie bag for Christmas and this was in there. I started using it this summer and I didn't know what eye shadow primer was until this! I live in southern California, we've been in 110 degree heat and my smokey eye doesn't budge. I cleaned my house and was super hot so I jumped in my pool and swam a bit my mascara was gone and my face make up but my shadow a fairly heavy smokey eye was in place just slightly lighter, this stuff holds your shadow on like glue. It goes on silky smooth and leaves a nice base color, the eye shadow glides on smooth and it never creases on me. Love, love, love this primer.

I find this primer does not last a full day without creasing.

This primer is really good. I have oily lids and if I use any eyeshadow (even the good quality ones) they just crease and look awful! Before this I used the Mary Kay primer and I found that it was so hard to blend and it wouldn't hold up the eyeshadows for too long but THIS one is amazing! You don't even feel it in your skin and works wonders :) Eyeshadows keep in place, blend really well and the colors show stronger and prettier. I recommend this one even for people with very oily lids.
On a side note, the packaging is SO cute! I love the baby blue tube!

It's my first eye primer and I really love it. I'm looking forward to try more Too Faced products, I thing they are amazing!

I love this primer, despite what other say about even better eyeshadow primers. When I first used it I hated how the oily substance and the colour pigments came out separated, but after a few uses the product came out great. I love the silicone feeling it has to it, which assures me of how well it will stick on to my eyelids, as well as reduce the oiliness. People tend to say the urban decay one is better for oily eyelids, but since I don't really have particularly oily eyelids, I find this product great! The packaging makes it easy to control a good amount of product I want to use, and most importantly, is sanitary. I also love how it doesn't really show the shade of the product on my eyelids once on, and tends to blend in very well. Love it!

I have tried so many eye primers, and I figures none of them would work for me. I finally decided to buy this one, even though it's pricey. And I LOVE it! I couldn't believe that all my eye makeup was still on, with no fading or creasing. It lasts a long time, you only need a little. Definitely better than urban decay primer potion. Worth the money. Repurchasing this for sure.

Essentially, this is the same thing as Urban Decay Primer Potion (the bottle-contained one), but made in China and runnier. Mind you I haven't tried the new UDPP in the squeeze tube so maybe the consistency is in fact as runny?
Anyway Shadow Insurance seems to go on fairly sheer, given it's runny consistency and does indeed prolong eyeshadow wear and stave off the creasing. I have fairly oil eyelids, so I definitely need to wear an eye primer every time I decide to actually wear eye shadow. And this does perform decently. However, I will say that it's not the most effective with matte eye shadows. Maybe UDPP suffers from the same shortcoming as mattes tend to be less emollient-rich and less able to adhere to my skin, thus kind of flake off more easily when I swatch them on the back of my hands? Not sure if that's the legit scientific explanation, but anyway! However, I faintly recall UDPP faring somewhat better overall, in that I would negligently fall asleep without removing my eye make up and wake up with it all still mostly perfectly intact! TFSI doesn't seem as miraculous . . .
This is definitely a good product by all means and it's going to last me awhile, but when I've finally depleted it, I'm going back to UDPP since they wisened up and repackaged the stuff in a squeeze tube.

Too faced isn't easy to get here in Belgium i need to go to the Netherlands and it's not super cheap but considering the amount of product that's in there, it's worth it. This is by far the best eye primer i've ever used. UD is the same story as too faced so haven't tried that but so far i see no reason too. A little goes such a long way! I thought i had run out but when i really started squeezing out the product in a jar there was still so much product left i couldn't believe it! I really really love this product!

I remember when I originally bought this it was because I was tired of UDPPs wasteful packaging (this was before they changed it). I liked it at first and was on a frosty/soft/buttery shadow kick at that time (think Stila Kitten, MAC Smoke & Diamonds, UD shimmer finishes, etc). When I started trying to wear this with more matte and satin finishes, TFSI would make my shadows look worse than if I'd worn them without primer at all. It did prolong wear & prevent fading, but if I wore any satin & matte finishes they would go on patchy, spotty, and "grabby". I'd spend a lot of time and work trying to make everything look even, if it could be done at all. A real hassle! So I put it aside for some months and used other primers. When I tried it again it was the same story, and after at least a month of use I noticed it started to dryout my left eyelid. Since UD has changed their packaging (& added colors, yay!) I've switched back to them. Like most products I'm guessing one's personal body chemistry must interact with this to make it work or not. I see bloggers and gurus and other MUAers rave about this, and I'm sure after 1000+ reviews it doesn't have a high rating for nothing. But for me personally it didn't work. If you've never tried TFSI I'd recommend getting a trial size first or if you're instore asking an SA if they'd make a sample for you & trying it with a variety of finishes at home.

I got this primer after reading so many good reviews on it. I Must say I was disappointed. I guess the expectations were too high...
I have to admit that eye shadows on this primer do appear stronger and last longer than without anything under, But this primer holds the eye shadows maybe 9 hours top without creasing, what I've found many other primers do for much less money.
I did like the packaging- I love products in a tube :)
I also liked the fact that it's a transparent primer.
I don't think I'll buy this again, because I would like to try other primers, and because of it's cost.

At first when I tried this product it didn't work out well, it creased quite a bit. But after using it a few times I noticed that it works fine if you use only a teeny tiny little bit. Depending on the eye shadow it still creases a little bit. But it's fine, it's an overall okay product.
