Foul. Greasy and Creasy. Everyone told me on my nw20-30 skin painterly was the one to get. I tried so many times. It creased always even when I applied primer under (defeats purpose imo), powder over, then shadow. Plus the color just no. Now, I have finally found a winner in the shade soft ochre. For one, the yellow cancels redness on the lid and for 2 it’s drier and doesn’t crease. Pink toned …Read more

I like this eye shadow primer very much. It is definitely suitable for oily skin. The texture is creamy and the formula is long-lasting. I put my makeup at 7 AM and it starts creasing around 7-8 PM. It has buildable coverage and it works well with other eye products that are not from MAC. It evens the skin tone and covers up pretty well my veins. You can use your fingers to apply it or a brush …Read more

I really like this as a primer for eye shadow, but it’s not a love for me.

I am between NC30 - NC35, light olive skin. This is a hair cooler than ideal for me.

Pros: evens out your eye area and covers veins and general uneven color. Works as a base for eyeshadow and make the color look more vivid and shadow stays put and lasts WAY longer with this underneath.

Cons: …

I've been searching for an eyeshadow primer to replace my Urban Decay eyeshadow primer potion. The Urban Decay one makes my eyeshadow stay on for 12 hours, but a full size tube lasts for only 1 month so I have repurchased this for 6 months and for 24 dollars I think that it's not a good value. I tried this Mac one and I've been using this every day for 1 month. I have really oily …Read more

I love this product and the colour. I have never used a cream eyeshadow before but after my eye lift I decided to try something new. I use this colour as my all over eye base before adding my smokey brown shadow. It’s fab the colour is quite subtle and Matte but it’s staying power is phenomenal and it doesn’t crease. I just scrape a little off the top of the pot with my nail and rub it on my hand …Read more

I love it as an eyeshadow base since it covers tiny capillares on my eyelids. It creates clean canvas without causing troubles while I’m blending eyeshadows. I gave it a 4 since in the summer when my lids are more oily it’s not long lasting (like 5-6 hours max).

This has definitely improved my eyeshadow wear time and helps to prevent shifting and creasing. I have been loving this over using an eyeshadow primer for two reasons: 1) I can see where I put it to make sure I cover my entire eyelid evenly and right down to my lash line, an area where I seem to sometimes miss and 2) it gives my eye area an even color so I don’t have to rely on my eyeshadow alone …Read more

I wanted to share a tip I just discovered. This works incredibly well with a tiny damp beauty blender! I had stopped using it because it was making my eyelids look more crepey then I cared for. Instead of throwing it out I decided to give it one last try by shearing it out this way. What great results I got! I’m very happy about this because I have blue veins that show through my eyelids and …Read more

I was actually after the stormy pink one, but couldn't find it, so I got painterly instead. While applying, painterly looks very plain, but after it dries out it turns into a gorgeous soft pink color on my lids, if you combine it with groundwork it looks amazing. Consistency is a bit waxy, but I may have a dud. I like the fact it is in a pot, so I can apply it either with a brush or the tip …Read more

Bought this as loads of people raved about it as an eye base / eye primer. It definitely works as an eye base! Never used it as an eyeshadow / lid topper so won’t comment on how it works when used in that way. I would recommend this product to someone just starting out. If you have yellow undertones definitely avoid as this is a pinky nude colour. Maybelline also do a dupe its their Tattoo 24 …Read more
