I got this one to compare to my Urban Decay primer. It's good and my eyeshadows have stayed on the whole day. I find it less sticky than the UD one, and the packaging is a bit better. I tried with a dark eyeshadow look and it stayed, with a little bit of fading by the end of the day. Compared to my UD one, it's about the same, so I'd use either or really. I guess it'd depend on whatever I put on my hand for the day. ^_^

Normally I used UDPP but decided to try this because the tube is much better. Unfortunately my shadows fade away and crease after about 4 hours. I can sleep in my UDPP and have it look good when I wake up. Back to UDPP I go.

This is the first eye primer I have ever bought. It's a little pricey, but it's totally worth it. It's easy to blend and dries really fast. I don't find it oily at all. I've had it for a few months now and the product hasn't seperated or anything. You don't need to use much product. A little goes a long way for this stuff. It makes my shadows so vibrant and last all day-literally all freakin day. I would definately rebuy this,, despite the pricetag.

I got this aproximately a year and a half ago. I used it for a long time. At first i loved it!! No creasing in 12-16 hrs. Good consistency, doesn't make the blending process difficult, it leaves a nice mate smooth finish and the packaging allows you to get some product quickly and without a mess.
But.... (there is always a but, huh?) after a few months of use, when i squeeze the tube to get some product, i would get some oily liquid thing instead. So, i realized the product separates inside the tube and i tried shaking it, pressing and rubbing the tube with my fingers in order to mix it back together in a cream. It worked because i never got that oily liquid again but i noticed that now the consistency of the primer was more oily and the saying power of my eyeshadow wouldn't last as long as before (now it would last aprox. 6-8 hrs without creasing, which is still good but nothing compared to how it was!).
So, what i think it happened is that since i bought it, it was a bit separated (cream and oil) inside the tube from the beginning, and all those months i was using mostly the creamy part, leaving more oily part adding up. So even when i shook it and stuff, now the product had more of the oily part and it wouldn't work as well as before :(

Overall it is a good product. But make sure you shake-rub the tube every so often so it won't separate inside the tube and you won't use up all the cream and get oil after some time.

So for the price i think this matter shouldn't happen, it is still a good product but i think i will stick to my new love the ELF mineral primer.

I choose this over Urban Decay's eye primer because you get a little more bang for your buck! Just because the way the packaging is with the Urban Decay you get so much product that is stuck inside the bottle. With the Too Faced you are able to squeeze it out until the last bit! I've even had clients write me saying their eyeshadow was still on the next morning!

I use this product daily! I even use it when Im not wearing shadow to control eyelid oil. The packaging is functional and makes good sense over the popular UDPP. And one tube lasts up to a year even with daily use.

I've never worn a shadow primer and this came with the insurance policy set. (smart on their part) I like this product because it works for me. I have dry sensitive acne prone skin and it doesn't irritate me at all. I like that it goes on similar to an oil/cream and blends to a satin finish. I have worn eye makeup all day and into the night without any creasing. The tube should last a while because you only need a drop. One dislike: it tends to separate (which is a little irritating) so I have to remember to shake it up before use. Even still, I doubt I'll ever use anything else!

For years I was a die hard UDPP addict. I didn't think anything out there compared....I was wrong!! Last week I dropped my UDPP and broke the bottle. The primer dried up within a week. I then decided to give Too Faced Shadow Insurance a try based on the great reviews and the packaging. I was amazed!! I will never go back to UD! This stuff rocks and applies so smoothly. I find that my shadows even blend better with this stuff.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Between this and Urban Decay's Primer Potion, I prefer this one. I have monolids, so I need primer to keep my liquid eyeliner on, and this does the trick. It makes my liner last throughout the day for the most part. Obviously, it'll smudge eventually, but it beats the primer potion.

I received a sample of this over a year ago, and never used it. STUPID!! I recently started using loose mineral eyeshadow and I was having major problems with fallout and eye irritation. I did some research and found this product, which I dug out of my drawer unopened. I also ordered a full-size on amazon.com after reading about how the packaging is better than UD's Primer Potion.

I pat this on, a little goes a very long way. (I expect it will be over a month before I'm done with the sample.) To avoid it creasing, like the below post said it did, I keep my eyes closed while it dries. I then apply my eyeshadow over it and it does NOT budge all day.

Today I applied a dark blue all over my eyes with a cream eyeliner over it around 10 am. I just took it off at 8:30 pm and there were no creases, no smudging, nothing.

Excellent product and worth the price. It will last a long time.
