Eyeshadow Primer Potion
Must-have for those with oily skin.
I completely agree that primers, including eyelid primers, are not always necessary additions to your makeup bag. For many people, simply choosing to use a good, high-quality eye shadow and layering over top of foundation applied to the eyelid maybe enough to ensure that your eye design stays in place all day and does not fade.
However, for those with oily skin, like myself, eyelid primer can be an absolute godsend. If I don't use it, my shadow starts to move hand crease after just two hours.
Every. Single. Time.
So, imagine my incredible joy when I found Urban Decay's eyelid primer. This stuff works and works well. When I put it on, it keeps my shadow in top condition for up to ten hours, which is amazing! It comes in a formulation that is essentially colorless as well as nude, gold shimmer, and pink champagne colors. So far as I can tell, all four work equally well, but the nude formula, Eden, is too pale for those with darker skin tones.
I have tried other eyelid primers, but always return to this one. Thus far, none of the others last half as long.
