After going back and forth with TFSI and UDPP, I think I prefer this product. I find it easier to work with since it is a bit more liquid than UDPP which makes it easier to spread over my eyelid. I also feel that it is easier to blend shadow over TFSI than UDPP. My main issue with UDPP has always been the packaging (the new doe foot was no improvement! I see that they now have a professional size tube at a higher price, but I just don't think it's worth it) so TFSI wins out there too. This sometimes does separate in the package, but a simple roll between my hands gets everything back to where it should be. It has never caused a problem with the use. I apologize that this is a mainly comparison review, but I felt it was important to point out why I prefer this over that.

This is an amazing product. I bought a tube of this a very long time ago, and i use eyeshadow pretty often. This tube has lasted me for almost a year. You dont need much of the product at all, and when you use this it improves many things.
It makes youe eyemakeup twice as bright and pigmented. makeup NEVER wears out, you ca rub your eyes and all fo your makeup will still be in place.
The little tube it comes in is also very nice. Unlike the Urban Decay Primer potion, you get ALL the product out of the tube, where as when useing urban decay's primer some of it is still left in the bottle.

I like the packaging, that's why I bought this. Squeeze tube is nicer than UDPP wand/bottle. Mine separated (from Sephora, I've noticed this a lot lately with their stuff) but I religiously shake it before using so it hasn't occurred again. I feel like the texture is too thin. It glides on easily but I don't feel like it's doing anything. I prefer UDPP in Sin :)

This is a good eyeshadow primer, but not great - at least not for me. My eyeshadow will crease some during the day when using this primer :\ Will not buy this again.

The staying power of this product is great. It truly helps your shadows last all day long. I didn't care for the consistency of the product. It's quite oily. I already have oily lids. I does blend easily and I top it with a MAC paintpot, so it's not a big issue. You get a ton of product so you get what you pay for. I didn't like the tube packaging (oil sometimes separated from product) so I "depotted" mine and put in an empty Maybelline dream mousse blush pot. It will probably last me for an eternity. I wouldn't repurchase when this one runs out. I like my primers to be less oily, but it is not a bad product.

I use both this and Urban Decay's Primer Potion and I don't notice a difference in their performance. Both make my eyeshadow last all day with no creasing. By all day I mean starting at 4 or 5 that day; I haven't tested their ability to last from morning until night.

One benefit to this brand is its tube packaging, though Urban Decay also offers a tube now. However, I think UD's is bigger, and therefore more expensive.

I do notice that if I go a while without using this it separates. Storing it upright with the cap pointed up and shaking it before opening it seems to fix that. It still works, anyway.

I haven't decided if I like this or Primer Potion better, but when I need to stock up again I would definitely consider this brand again.

I've been using Too Faced Shadow Insurance as a primer for almost a week. I used it with cream eyeshadow from Benefit and powder eyeshadows from MAC and Inglot. After 15 hours of serious workday - no creasing. But, I have to say that I spent all those time in an air conditioned building. MAC's paintpot creased on me after about 8 hours in the came conditions. I found my new primer. Will repurchase this until UDPP becomes available in my local Sephora, I will have to try that one.

I discovered this product when I got a free sample from Sephora, and it lasted me such a long time before I decided to go and buy the full sized one. I love this product. It makes my eye shadow last forever (even if I go swimming!) and there is no creasing. It also allows for better color payoff. This primer is amazing, and I will definitely rebuy when I run out, which won't be for a long time, since you only need the tiniest bit.

I love this more than all of my other eyeshadow primers put together. Have tried UDPP, NARS, LORAC (apparently I only try primers that are all capital letters) -- oh yeah, and Smashbox. I always come back to TFSI. I have been using it almost every day for a year and am just coming to the end of my first tube.

As noted, sometimes it does separate, but a little bit of vigorous shaking ("I Whip My TFSI Back And Forth") makes it recombine with no problems.

I love this product. I use it every day. It makes my eye shadow stay put for my 13 hour work days, NO creasing and NO fading throughout the day. It is awesome. I have also tried UDPP and I found it to be too drying, my lids would have flakes on them from the product. I do not have the problem with the Too faced.
