Behind The Scenes Eye Primer

LOVE this eye primer!

I went into Sephora wanting to check out a good eye primer (I love eye primers!) and I originally wanted to check out the Kat Von D primer and the NARS smudgeproof primer. I went an asked one of sales associates for their opinion on the two and he said "neither". Instead, he walked me over to the LORAC section and proceeded to tell me that he doesn't share it with too many people but that most of the workers there used the LORAC Behind The Scenes eye primer. So after he told me that, I was sold. It was $20 for 0.47 fl. oz, which is a really good amount of product! I also love the packaging, which is like a Lancome Juicy tube or Jack Black lip balm. The consistency is similar to Too Faced Shadow Insurance (which was horrible and didn't work for me) and it dries to a velvety powder-like finish. It makes application of my shadows so effortless, my shadows are very much true to color, if not brighter and bolder, and it really helps my shadows to stay on my super oily lids. I haven't experienced any creasing yet and I've been using this almost daily. Love it!

I got this primer in a set I received for xmas last year. I love this stuff. I have oily crease not lid but crease, totally annoying and with this primer my shadow stood all day and didn't smudge at all. No creasing and the colors totally popped. I recommend this to anyone but especially if you have oily lids, it's amazing. The packaging is great, since it's a squeeze tube you can keep your product sanitary and not worry about bacteria and also you don't waste product. I believe it's $20 which is comparable to other eye primers. You can get it at Ulta or Sephora.

My favorite eyeshadow primer of all time!

This crease-proof shadow primer is my favorite to use on myself and also carry it in my makeup kit. It is the best primer by far in my opinion because it goes on easily on the lids without having to rub on. It works well for all skin colors and skin types. It is light weight and downs cake, crease or budge. It provides a perfect base for powder shadows, cream shadows and even plain on the lids to prepare for a cat eye liner.

In the past I used flirt! Cosmetics eyeshadow mousse in snow angel as an eyeshadow primer for years! Like over 5 and a half to be exact...then eyeshadow primers really started to get popular but I never wanted to join the crowd...and finally I did..I started with the e.l.f primer...for $1....loved it! It works really good! Then I got a sample of too faced shadow insurance...wasn't a fan...uddp is thicker consistency...it was good but lorac caught my eye cuz it was paraben free and it had nothing but amazing reviews....and I love it! Its not sticky..u don't have to wait for it to dry before u put ur shadows on..it blends ur shadows without putting much effort into it...I won't try any other primers...I'm sticking to this one forever....or as long as they keep it in their line which I hope is forever =)

It's perfect in anyway possible

It's everything I wanted UDPP & TFSI should be. I've had it for over a year and I have not experienced separating like with TFSI and it doesn't have that stupid packaging that UDPP had (I know it's changed but it's too late and I've already converted). It's slightly thicker than TFSI and UDPP,and I've applied this at 6am and accidentally rubbed my eye at night and my eye makeup is still flawless.

It's a good $18 investment.

Also, I'm almost out and I'm due for another tube, but I'm squeezing that stuff out like it's toothpaste.

One of the best

I first used this when it came with a set. I instantly loved how well it worked. It does not crease, and it helps make my shadows last for hours. It isn't to thick or to thin, and is easy to apply. It is one of the best eye primers I have used.

This primer is the first i tried and it never gave me any reason to try anything else ! It makes my color stay for 8 plus hours without wearing off or creasing! It gives the color a boost too, but what i like the most is that without making my eye crease it stays so long ! If you have a party and want long lasting bright eye shadow in place,this is a good choice !

I got this eye primer with the LORAC PRO Palette and still am using it. This is hands down, the best eye primer I've ever used. I've never used any other high end eye primers so I can't really compare. But my eyeshadows never crease whenever I use this stuff, yes, never!

Best lid primer

This lid primer is the only one i'll use! The lightly tinted cream goes a long way and is very easy to apply to the lids with just your finger tip. There is no need to put a base powder under the shadows because the creams color does just that! The shadow lasts all day and never creases ( this is even with just a Maybelline shadow) so knowing it works for high end and affordable end shadows is amazing and proves that it is a top of the line product! LOVE IT!!!

The best!

This is the best primer I have ever used! When I was so frustrated with my UDPP and Two Faced Shadow Insurance creasing on me all the time, I went on a hunt for a eyelid primer that wouldn't make my eyeshadows crease. I bought the Lorac Pro palette and this gem of an eyelid primer came with it. I have never been happier in my life with an eyelid primer! It is a very creamy primer and the eyeshadows blend like a dream. And best of all, my eyeshadows finally did not crease! I've come to the conclusion that there is no better eyelid primer for me than the Lorac Behind the Scenes!
