When I don't feel like doing a crazy dramatic look or something that involves a sticky base, I will pick up this product as my primer instead of the UDPP. It's cheap (like SUPER cheap) and actually works great. With this I have to set my eyelids with powder before applicaiotn to put another layer between the oil and my shadow. The only thing is I wish it was just a little bit more sticky but not as much as the UDPP.
This is such an easy review. I use it every day and primer is so important. If you start with a good base, you're on your way to having great makeup.
Its cheap, It works, Its cheap.
Staple for life.
You know when you love a product so much that you KNOW its become a permanent staple in your MU collection? Well, this is one of mine. I've tried Urban Decay Primer Potion, etc - SO many primers. While I'm not saying this is BETTER than high-end primers, I'm saying that it works just as well.
It goes on SO smooth, so soft, so great. It makes colors pop, last longer & have no had ANY creasing problems since purchasing this. Will stock up like CRAZY. <3
PUT IN ON YOUR LIPS!
This is "okay" as an eye primer- however, i found a better use! Instead of using heavy concealer and foundation to take the color out and prime my lips i just use this! It takes out the redness in my lips and creates a really smooth base and helps the longevity!
I have two of those. Theyre okay. But when they dry on your before you apply an eyeshadow, I feel like theyre not worth anything. Unless I have somethign else on top. Which I dont always have time for.
I use this everytime I apply my makeup! Using this then a NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil as a color base, my eyeshadow stays put all day. I haven't experienced creasing at all using this method. At only a dollar, what more could you ask for?
Considering it's price, I guess it worked well. I think it maybe allowed my makeup to stay on 2-3 hours and that was about it. I didn't ever experience creasing so that's a plus.
Doesn't make my eyeliner run
Without this, my eyeliner usually runs mid-day as if the eyeliner was my eyeshadow and I don't wear eyeshadow lol...yet!
The only thing I didn't like in the beginning was every time I put the wand back in the tube, primer would come out and be wasted, but hey for 4 quarters, I can get another, no prob! =)
I love this primer. I was a bit skeptical when I purchased it since I always swore by UDPP but, I was blown away. Honestly it worked I would say just around the same as UDPP. The only thing is that if you do not blend in sufficiently it tended to cease a bit on me. But I dont mind taking a couple extra seconds to blend in a bit more, and the best part is its only $1.00 =]
For $1, it's ohk.
Not the best primer I've tried, but I didn't have high expectations from a producted only costing a dollar. This primer does allow the shadows to be applied evenly and more vibrant, however the staying power doesn't improve greatly, and the creasing is delayed but still happens.
I wouldn't recommend this product for the working woman or the ladies who have long days (extending 5-7hours), I would however recommend this to high school girls or the ladies who are just looking to have a few hours out on the town, because after about 5-7 hours the primer doesn't do its job and your eyeshadow will crease and wear off.
