I used to think that I didn't need primer so I used to apply my eyeshadows without one. Once I bought this, it has become one of my must-have items. It is ideal for people who have oily lids such as me. When I apply eyeshadow alone without a primer, the colors turn out so dull, but with this, the colors are so much more vibrant! Also, it keeps your eyeshadows on all day and all night without creasing except in the outer corner and a little in the tear duct which is wear water touches it when I get teary. I still have yet to find a product that won't crease in either of those places...I won't purchase this product again only because I want to try out other products that might work better such as maybe Urban Decay Primer Potion. Don't use too much, a little goes a long way, just a small tiny dot, or else your eyelids will be oily and the eyeshadow will go on streaky. As far as the packaging, the excess product crusts around the cap/screw, but I love that if you squeeze too much out, you just have to put the extra product on the tip and it will sink back into the tube! :)

Urban Decay Primer Potion had been the miracle solution for my eye lids that are so oily they could melt MAC's paint pots. If it's not broken, then don't fix it, people say, but I was curious to see if this would work just as well, so I bought it.
I must say that it performs very well, keeps my oily eyelids in check, and keeps my eye shadows and eye liner intact, same as Urban Decay Primer Potion. However, I have come to prefer Shadow Insurance because, once applied, it's invisible. When I use Urban Decay Primer Potion, I'm left with a visible beigey base. I was so used to seeing that beige base, that I was initially skeptical of Shadow Insurance's effectiveness... but I need not fear.
This is a very good primer for the eyes and I will be using this from now on.

I have used UDPP in original and sin and this is so much better for 2 reasons. 1) It doesn't leave any evidence. UDPP original left white gunk around the eye and had to be seamlessly blended. Even when I thought I had done a great job, I would see the line from the primer in the mirror later in the day. UDPP sin had the same blending issue and was sparkly which I don't prefer. Shadow Insurance blends so easily. Much better! 2) The packaging is more convenient. I can squeeze all the product out and it's less bulky. Been using for 6 months and still love love love. Works perfectly! I'm starting to run low on my first tube and will definately repurchase.

Does what it is suppose to do and the packaging is well thought out too. You only need a tiny amount of this to make it work, if you use too much it may crease a little.

HG product! I haven't actually tried UDPP but really don't feel the need to since TFSI is everything that I would want in an eyeshadow primer. The packaging is neat- no product wasted, and hygienic too, its easy to apply, and most importantly eyeshadows don't fade or crease. TFSI managed to keep all eye make up in place for a good 18 hours and since then has become my best make up friend :) A little goes a long way, so this product should keep a good while too. Highly recommend!

Great performance and eye makeup definitely stays on for hours without creasing or smudging. I love that it doesn't have a wand. I found there to be some waste with UDPP's wand and a lot of drying. I shake this up everytime before opening and have had no issues. A lil goes a long way!

I used to be a loyal Urban Decay Primer Potion user, but TFSI turned me. The staying power is better, the formula isn't as dry, and the packaging is worlds better. I've been converted.

I couldn't possibly be happier with a primer. The SA at Sephora recommended it to me, saying that it was the best value for the price, and boy was she right! A tiny drop spreads easily and comfortably all over my lid, I'm sure I won't run ut too fast. A lot of people have commented on how well my eye makeup stays in place, even after swimming or sweating, not to mention the packaging is beautiful.

Dear TFSI, I am sooo sorry! We had an amazing relationship, when I got the 7-month-itch, and I decided to look around -- y'know, see what else was out there and explore my options in the world of eye primers. Boy, was I disappointed. Unlike me, TFSI, you do not stray. You stay in tact and keep my eye shadows locked in place for up to 8 hours; not only that, but you have a light consistency, go on effortlessly, and never crease. Plus, you bring out the best in my shadows -- color has never been so vibrant, until you came into my life! And packaging? Baby, you've got it going on! The best design I've come across in my search for the perfect primer. Yes, I saw others like Kat Von D, ELF Mineral Primer, Pop Beauty, and Laura Mercier, but you...you are the best! I'm glad we made up...I missed you! MUAH!
