Prime Time Eyelid Primer
I have very oily skin and eyelids. I can never get eye shadow or eyeliner to stay on without ending up in my creases. I went into the store to get some foundation and was given a sample of this. I LOVE IT!!!! keeps my eye shadow on all day and keeps my eyelids from getting oily! wooooo!
wasn't what I thought
I had been putting the face primer on my eyes and the shadow went on like a dream so I thought I would buy the eye primer---well the shadow does not glide on smoothly and shows all of the wrinkles. I don't think I will buy again.
I love this product. You only have to use a very small amount, and my eye shadow and liner stay all day, even on days when i space out on the fact that i wear insane amounts of eye makeup, and accidentally start to rub my eye, my color stays. I can see a big difference when i have this primer on and when i don't. If i don't wear it, i get home at the end of the day and all my eye makeup has moved up into a greasy mess in my eyelid crease. when i have it on, my eye color is brighter, and it stays exactly where i put it all day. i even love that you put it on with your finger, there's more control that way. Just wash and dry your hands before you put it on.
An everyday must!
One thing I noticed right away when I switched from liquid foundation (which I used on my lids as a primer) is that my shadow would crease before mid-day. I have oily skin so make-up tends to float on the surface. I started using this product and it was the perfect solution! It adds just the slightest touch of color to help it blend with the make-up on the face and keeps the eye shadow right where you want it! (Just mind how you apply it - accidental application makes eyeshadow in the wrong places) It prevents creasing even into the evening. I won't go a day without it.
this primer is very easy to apply. i used a primer before and it was very difficult to spread over my eye lid because it was so thick and tacky. this primer goes on effortlessly, it feels light weight and most importantly it works!
OK so if you'd asked me months ago I would have said this eyelid primer was horrible. Thanks to the girls in the boutique I realized I was using way too much. You only need a tiny bit to smooth across your eyelid and even all the way up to your eyebrow. Without the primer my eyelids look like an oil slick by the end of the day and any shadows I've applied are caked in the creases or just wiped off. With the primer my eyelids were not oily and my eyeshadows were in place!
Set eyeshadow all day!
I love the eye primer. I can tell huge difference when I'm not wearing the primer. It makes you shadow stay set, even if you rub you eye it still doesn't move. This is must have in my makeup bag. Thanks BE and Leslie!
I ALWAYS had problems with my eyeliner rubbing onto my eyelids, my eyeshadow creasing. Every single day it would happen even it wasn't hot or humid. With the eyelid primer it NEVER happens. If I forget to put it on I will actually remove my eyemakeup and redo it so I can put on my primer. I never have a problem if I use it. Definitely worth it!!
This is a great eye primer. One thing I have noticed it that everyone does not always use a primer, but once they try it and realize how great of a product it is they are hooked. This container is small which can be a bit surprising especially for the price. That being said it does last a while; it doesn’t take much to cover your entire eye lid to even out the tone and help keep your eye shadow from creasing. I must admit I do not think this eye primer is anything too special; I have used other brands that work just as well and are slightly cheaper. But in review of this product itself it is a great product overall and will help keep your eye shadow from creasing or disappearing throughout the day. If they were to lower the cost or make the size of the container larger I would of given it more stars.
Best primer out there
I have used BE products for 5 years total, and the eyelid primer for 2 years. I tried using their eyeshadows without the primer and was disappointed with it. It just won't stay on without the primer. But just a little primer will keep it on all day, without caking up in the eyelid creases or fading. I've even used it with other eyeshadows and it works very well. I've tried other eye primers and none have been as effective. It just really works.
