UPDATE: 01/21/11 - I have completely changed my mind about this product. I evidently was applying it too thick. I now am putting just a small amount on with my pinky finger and patting it. NOW I'm getting the benefits of this product. My eye shadow doesn't budge and the colors are brighter.

I too fell into the hype with this product and wasted my money. I've tried it for a week now and it just doesn't work. A minute after I've put it on my eye, I have to go back and re-smooth it - because it has already creased. I do not have oily eye lids either! By noon my eye shadow looks like a mess and I have to reapply.

I'm going to stick with just poweder and base makeup from now on.

I definitely favor this over my UDPP! The packaging is more practical, and it's better for contact users, or people who rub their eyes a lot. Hands down my favorite.

This was my first eyeshadow primer. I ended up choosing it over Urban Decay's Primer Potion because of the packaging. The squeeze tube just makes more sense than the Primer Potion applicator, and I'm a devoted Shadow Insurance user now. It makes my eyeshadows last for as long as I could possibly need and I've never had any creasing!

This is a great primer that comes from a squeeze tube. MY eyeshadow lasts all day, and the color neutralizes my lid. It can be oily sometimes but not often.

I received Shadow Insurance as a sample in a huge Sephora VIB pack, and immediately fell in love. At first I was weary, since for the past few years I'd been a UDPP devotee, but on a relaxed night at a minor league ball game, I decided to give it a try and see how it fared. Well, I was blown away! It's so smooth and creamy, but not greasy or thick. My shadows would sometimes "skip" or tug with UDPP and I always thought it was my technique/brushes or the shadows themselves. After using Shadow Insurance, I'm now convinced it was the UDPP! Everything goes on so easily, and so vibrant and true. I never though it would happen, but I'm converted! I also love the packaging 2000000x more than UDPP. The squeeze tube is superior (even though UDPP came out with a "pro sized" squeeze tube), and allows me to apply just the right amount - which is a tiny drop! HG material for sure.

I suffer from major creasing because my lid area is quite small and overlaps when I blink. For this reason, I can't use even BeneFit Creaseless Cream shadows without creasing by the end of the day. I've tried pretty much everything out there (MAC Paint Pots, UDPP, Smashbox Photo Finish...) and I have to say that I've had the best results with this primer. It is slick and easy to apply, which I like because I have very sensitive/delicate skin.

Once it's on there, my shadow stays put all day long. No creasing, no fading. I've found that this works even better than UDPP for me, though I still do use both. The only reason to use a different primer in my opinion is if you are using shadows that have a glitter/lustre finish, which will cling better to the tacky base that MAC Paint Pots provide.

As mentioned in other reviews, the tube is much easier to use than the UDPP container and you need so little of the product that one tube will lase for months, even with daily use. I'd highly recommend giving this a try, even if you've been disappointed by other supposedly fantastic primers!

Great product, not a crease in sight when I use this, nor does my eyeshadow fade with it. I work 10 hour days and when I get home my eyeshadow still looks good as new. The only time I ever have a problem is when I over apply, too much seems to promote both creasing and fading.

So my first love with eyeshadow primers was the much sought after UDPP and I still do love it BUT the packaging is just so dang wasteful! True they have revamped it with the wand being curved at the tip, but I still say there is some product that goes unused. So for this reason and this reason only (cuz I honestly think they are both equally great products) I give the edge to TFSI. Love how easy the packaging is and how less bulky it is compared to the, oh so cute, genie UDPP bottle. I have really, really, really, oily eyelids and I guess some think TFSI is more for dry lids and UDPP for oilier lids but I must say I don't notice the difference. I am currently using both products, depending on what my hand reaches for first in my makeup case and both hold up nicely.

Great product! Delivers the results it promises, my eye shadow stayed on all day for the first time in my life without creasing nor melting off.
HG primer for eyeshadow!
