Shadow insurance is my favorite primer. I used this before I tried UDPP and I seriously thought I was going to like UDPP better but NO. I love my too faced. its so silky smooth.glides on flawlessly and keeps my shadow in place all day. Does not do anything to make your shadow more vibrant because many people think a shadow primer is suppose to do that but yea great primer.Will re-purchase over and over

I tried this product after becoming increasingly annoyed with UDPP's packaging. I figured that my eyes weren't particularly oily or anything, so I should give this a try. Gah, never again. First off, it separated constantly so I always had to knead it before use. It also just didn't increase my staying power, I creased after 5 hours or so. :/ Basically, I'm going back to UDPP. This product does to many wonderful things for some people but I guess not me!

This is the only eyeshadow primer I've tried, so I can't speak to how well it works in comparison to other primers.
It works wonders on me. I bought so many different colors over the years, hoping for something that would last, but they all would just melt or crease in a few hours. Now my eyeshadows last all day, so it's reasonable to wear them to work, or spend time on a more elaborate look.

I'm so glad I finally decided to invest in this product! I don't know how I ever went without it!
I actually couldn't decide whether to get Urban Decay or Too Faced, but I decided on Too Faced because the packaging is better. You can get more out of the tube without any wasted product. I like the fact that the product itself is really light and doesn't feel like I have anything on my eyelids when I apply it. A little goes a long way with this stuff! You just need the tiniest dot.
My shadows never crease, and they always last all day long until I wash my face at night!
I'd definitely recommend this product. The price may seem a bit steep, but seeing as you only use a tiny bit each time, it lasts forever! Definitely worth it.

I love too faced cosmetics, but I didn't care for this primer. I received this with a Too Faced shadow palette. It has a flesh toned nude matte color. I found the texture to be watery which I didn't like. It does keep shadow in place, but I've moved on to other shadow primers that work better in my opinion.

This stuff keeps my shadows on pretty much all day. No fading, creasing...and it's very moisturising on my sensitive eyelids too - unlike urban decay which dryed my lids out. My shadows blend easily over TSFI and come out more vibrant.

This is on my must have list. I originally got this as a sample from Sephora while I was actually buying an Urban Decay eye primer for my mother. Needless to say I had never used an eyeshadow primer and decided to start using it because the BA at Sephora advised me that I would love it. And she was RIGHT! A little goes a long way with this product and the texture is less heavy than the Urban Decay primer I bought for my mother. I tried my mother's Urban Decay after I ran out of my sample and I just didn't like it. The Urban Decay even creased and made my eyes feel heavy. So I certainly didn't fall into the Urban Decay hype like my mother did.
I was skeptical at first when trying the shadow insurance, or any eye primer for that matter because of my skin being super oily. I thought it was just another layer of MU to run down my face. But I am so glad I tried it because now I don't think I can live without it.

So I had a rather interesting experience with this product. For the first month I absolutely hated it and vowed to return it to Sephora. I thought I was doing everything right - all the youtube gurus had gone time and time again about how less is more when it came to eyeshadow primers and that you needed the tiniest amount possible. So I obliged and applied a thin coat of primer on my lids and waited for it to dry before applying eyeshadow and yet it creased every.single.time. within an hour or two. I figured I was just some kind of freak of nature with eyelids so greasy no product in the world could help me.
So the day before I decided to go to Sephora and return TFSI I decided to give it one last shot - but apply a lot* of product this time. I mean whats the worst that could happen - it would just crease again right? WRONG. It actually worked. My eyeshadow lasted ALL DAY and when I mean all day I mean over 12 hours. So I figured this was some kind of a fluke and I tried the same thing the next day, I applied a generous, even coat of TFSI all over my lid, waited for it to dry and applied my eyeshadow. Again it lasted all day. I don't go a day without TFSI now.
Point of the story is, if you tried TFSI and its not working for you, try to apply more than you were applying before and it just might work for you. I'm pretty sure my lids are as greasy as they get and my eyeshadow hasn't creased once since I've amped up the amount of TFSI I use.
*Note when I say a lot I mean about the size of a small button on each lid.

This is the only eye shadow primer I've tried, but I do like it. My eye shadow doesn't crease at all. The only problem is, if you use too much it can be very drying. I like that it comes in a tube so there is no waste. I probably won't repurchase just because I want to try some other brands first.
