PrimeTime Primer Shadow Kit: Chroma Violet
really bought it for the brush
So I got this to try, even after reading the reviews saying the primer was dried out. Well it is, but not so much that it isn't usable. It is a pain to get out of the tube but softens up as soon as you rub it and the color is GORGEOUS. The brush is great minus the fact that I have to leave it on it's side to avoid bending either of the tips. The shadow is pretty but goes on rather pale. On my skin it just doesn't add much.
Chrome Violet Primer, Shadow and Brush
This is a great little kit. Great brush. I love the colored primer. Sometimes I use it as eye shadow because I don't have time to do makeup. It looks great! The Java shadow is a muted brown color so very versatile. A good deal.
I think I know why this is 'last chance'
This primer is very difficult to work with and is a great disappointment. It isn't anything at all like the other PrimeTime primers I use. I bought it because I love the color. Unfortunately I can barely get it out of the tube and it almost crumbles instead of smoothing on creamy like the others I have. I like the brush though.
Was I sent old product???
I couldn't get the primer to come out of the tube!! I squeezed and squeezed for close to 5 minutes straight! By the time I was done my fingers were sore! Finally, a tiny bit of primer came out and it was like hardened paste! I've used their colored eye primers before, so I know how the consistency is supposed to be. I sent it back for a refund. Not happy about paying for return shipping, so I won't be taking my chances a second time.
This is a great bargain. The brush alone costs more than the price of this kit. I have wanted this brush for quite some time but never purchased it because it's expensive. However, to get the brush, a regular size primer and eye shadow for less, made it seem worth it. The rounded flat side of the brush works well for applying eye color. I use the pointed end for applying color to my crease. I don't know if I am using the pointed end correctly, but I have deep-set eyes and it really gets the color in my crease well. The primer goes on smooth and is an intense, deep purple color. The shadow color is not as vibrant yet still very pretty and goes on easily over the primer. I like more neutral colors so I apply the shadow over the primer to tone down the color. Again great purchase for the price and I like everything.
Love this purple primer shadow!!! I used it on my little niece with the eyecolors angel, magnificent, and mocha supreme (all different purple shades) and omg she was gorgeous. The eye brush is great, as always, and the brownish eyecolor is beautiful as well. It is a petite size, but still worth it.. another great buy from BE!!!
