When I applied this primer onto my eyelids it just felt thin and like I could easily wipe it off after it dried. Then when I applied my eyeshadow on top of it the colors just didn't blend the way I like them to. But hey it was only a buck so it's worth a try to see if it works for you!
Decent for the broke college student
I would not rave about this product, but being a very broke college student working on paying off loans, it is a constant repurchase. I do not think that this lasts as long as it could, but I don't have much experience with other eye primers for comparison.
A gift from the Makeup Gods!
After reading online that this $1.00 product was comparable to Urban Decay Primer Potion, I just knew I had to try it, I have never used UDPP and now I never will. This stuff works and never fails me, this is coming from a person with hooded eyelids that do tend to get a little oily in the crease. Ive tried applying it thin and thick and it all ways pulls through. No matter what, I'm talking 17hrs of wear here people, yes 17hrs, and at the end of the night/early morning when I'm taking everything off my eye makeup still looks like I just did it, when I splash water on my face and look in the mirror, eyeshadows are still there looking perfect, it holds. No creasing or fading no problems, period :) I have the typical light beige nude color (Sheer) and I also have the other two colors, Champagne(Light khaki brown) and Pearl(White) these last two aren't matte like sheer but are a matte base forumula with shimmery chunky glitter specks, they are both just as good as Sheer. I love these so much that I buy them in bulk and when the wand won't reach anymore of the product because its all pushed to the sides of the tube, I cut it open, dig it out and depot it into an airtight jar,lol.Yes its only a dollar spent but this product is too good to waste. I will forever sing the praises of this primer :)
Best product out there for an eyelid primer. Makes my shadows stay on all day and never have regretted my purchase. I love that this is only for $1.00 who can beat the price? I have oily eyelids and this is a holy grail product for me. Hope it stays on the market forever and never gets discontinued.
For a buck, you absolutely cannot beat it. And heaven forbid you catch a 50% off sale and grab this sucker for 50 cents.
It is incredibly comparable to Urban Decay Primer Potion - the only difference I've noticed is the staying power.
It goes on smooth, provides the tiniest amount of color, just enough to even out your eyelids and lightly cover any veins or discoloration.
It's tacky enough to really help your eyeshadow stick, although not *quite* as tacky as Urban Decay's.
In terms of staying power, I find that I get a solid 5-6 hours with this with just typical primer-shadow combo. If I use another base over the primer, I can get a couple more hours with it.
I would say by using this you would have no need for the Urban Decay primer, but with the long hours I work and whatnot, I have already sold my soul to Urban Decay. However, for a day that I know won't be as long, if I just have to go run errands or whatever for a few hours, I'll definitely use this instead.
