Prime Time Eyelid Primer
I have never been so impressed by a product. Over the years I found that my skin had become blemished. After using this product for just a few weeks to cover the imperfections around my eye lids, the imperfections vanished. I found the skin was smoother and brighter than it had been for years. I will be coming back again and again for this product as I have done with the Bare Escentuals line since 2003. Thank you for creating a line of skin care that I can count on!
This is some great stuff!
I have been using this stuff for years and I love it! It has the staying power that's just perfect! I recently used it to do some foiling for Halloween and I almost had to scrub the shadow off! It would not come off for a while, and it proved how great the stuff is.
Too pricey for small tube/packaging
I'm not giving a negative review on the formula. The formula is excellent and has great staying power, but it is the amount of ounces of the tube that is not so good. $18 for a 0.1 ounce tube is outrageous. Imo, it's too pricey for a tiny tube.
P. S. I'm not to impressed with the repackaging either. I don't like the idea of using your finger to apply eyelid primer. I've also used the tapered shadow brush, and bristles get a little rough when you apply the primer with this brush. Our eyes are delicate, especially under-eye area. It would be nice to have a special applicator or a detachable soft, hydrating brush as the primer applicator for the eyelid primer packaging. If possible, I hope the packaging for this product can be revised for the better.
Makes a great concealer, too!
I have very oily eyelids and this holds my shadow all day. I was so impressed I decided to try it on a little spot I was trying to conceal near the corner of my mouth, where concealer would get worn off during the day. I have aging skin so I try to use a light hand with foundation especially around my mouth and eyes. I put a little on on after my Bare Minerals foundation, then dabbed a little more foundation on with a small brush. Magic! The spot disappeared and the cover up stayed all day!
Wearing Eye Shadow Again
This really works. It has me buying eye shadow again as it will actually stay when I use this. The new designed tube is good too. The old applicator was nice but you couldn't tell when it was about out and sometimes too much came out. I just use a pinky finger. Perfect.
This is my fave of all the eye primers
It goes on invisible and holds my eyeshadow all day without any creasing! When I get home from work, my eye makeup still looks flawless which is great if I don't have time to refresh it and have to run to meet up with someone.
Simply the BEst
This eye primer I absolutely can not live without. I use to have oily eyelids and had to touch up my eye makeup every two hours. Now I use BE eye primer, a tiny bit & let it dry, then apply my eye makeup. Twelve hours later with no touch-ups at all, my eye makeup & liner look as fresh & perfect as I just put it on. I HIGHLY recomend this product.
love this stuff!
Purchased this eyelid primer, not expecting much. Wow was I wrong, this stuff is awesome! I have combo skin and usually like to wear eyeshadow but would find that at the end of the day my eyeshadow would be in the crease of my eyes. The first day I used BE eyelid primer I was amazed, I worked an 12 hour shift ,even went for a 30 min walk 99° degree weather. My eyeshadow had not creased..it had stayed just as I had placed it that morning. I will never go back to just wearing eyeshadow alone..I love this stuff!
I've tried other eye primers but this is my favorite. It helps keep the eyeshadow in place all day and prevents creasing. I usually work about 9-10 hours a day and my eyeshadow looks great!
Creates a perfect eyelid canvas!
This product does everything it says it does in it's description! I apply this primer from lashline to brow..it's great to wear by itself when I'm in a hurry! Just apply some eyeliner & a quick application of mascara! It also allows BE's eyecolor to remain on your eyelid all day long! I had a huge problem with well-rested fading throughout the day..not anymore! This extra step is worth it! You won't be disappointed!
I have never come across an eye primer with this kind of staying power. It's like, eye makeup glue. It won't come off for anything. Seriously, I can put this on at 8am in the morning and it will look exactly the same, exactly as vibrant and strong as when I put it on the morning when I take it off at like midnight that night. Seriously, it's amazing. Ah may zing. If you want to keep your eye makeup on for any extended period, you'll love this. It's also great to wear alone if your eye lids get greasy throughout the day.
Best one yet!
Really like this eyelid primer. It is creamy and I did not have a wrinkly look on my eyelids halfway through the day. I also have the other eyelid primer that has a shimmer to it - but I prefer this one.
I tried the eyelid primer today, and it is wonderful! It was 97 degrees here, and I don't glow, I sweat, and my eye color did not crease at all! Thank you Leslie!
I have been using the old primer for a few years now and absolutely loved it. I just bought this new kind and absolutely hate it! It is such a disappointment... It makes my eyeshadow look a little dull and the color is off. It also does not help my eye shadow stay on at all and the new bottle is not good either. Please bring back the old primer I've look everywhere and can't find any, don't waste your money on this I'm so upset I did.
No more creased eye shadow
This eyelid primer is amazing. Your lid will not smudge or all go into the crease (like mine used to do), even if you sleep in it. (I tried it as an experiment.)
No Longer a Skeptic
I loved BE eye color, but I had to reapply often. This solved it! I was wary, because previous primers of other brands often creased or changed the properties of the eye color.
Not this product....it has never creased, it keeps the BE eye color true to its properties and the color stays where you applied it.
One hint...it does change the way in which you apply your color, so it takes a little more practice and it does require a little bit more color when applying. However, the effects are unbelievable!
Thank you BE!
I have oily skin and always had creasing on my eyelids so hardly wore shadow on my eyes. Now, I can't wait to pick out colors each day. This primer is awesome and I my shadow stays on all day with no creasing at all. I don't know how you did it, but thanks BE!
Lengthens staying power of ANY eyecolor
This works great with BE colors but if you're not ready to switch over completely to BE, this works for any eye shadow. This really helps with the staying power of any eyecolor. It also doesn't really change the color of the eyecolor which is nice.
great product - bad packaging
I have been using this primer for two years now and I love it, BUT the packaging was changed recently and the new packaging wastes the primer. It is really difficult to get the primer out of the tube and I consistently squeeze too much out because it is so hard to control. I waste so much of the primer this way, which is incredibly irritating. I like the old packing better.
Absolutely amazing and I can't live without it !!
MUST HAVE! Awesome.
Keeps shadow and eye-liner from smudging and moisturizes the eye area. I went one day without it, and my eye-liner, especially around the bottom of my eye, smudged all over my lower lid.
End eyeshadow crease forever
I have a sample tube of this and I will never be without it again. Once applied eyeshadow goes on easier, and I never have the crease anymore.
You should not be wearing eye make up w/o it!
This stuff has revolutionized my make up routine. Instead of having to reapply my shadows because the oils in my lids eat those pretty BE colors, I can put them on in the morning and they stay until I TAKE THEM OFF! How awesome! Thanks BE!
Makeup kit staple!
This product is wonderful! I'm so glad that they changed the packaging to this much easier-to-use tube. My eyeshadow stays on and strong all day when I use this first, especially my BE glimmers. They don't even seem like they have faded or smudged anywhere by the end of the day(or night!). I work in a restaurant, so between constantly moving around and dealing w/ a hot kitchen, makeup can easily run, but not with this primer! If you want your shadows to stay and not have to waste time reapplying throughout the day, then this is a staple that should be added to your makeup kit immediately.
I absolutely LOVE this product. I have tried soooo many different primers, but nothing worked. My eyeliner would rub off onto my browbone after 10 minutes of application. This product works wonders, even on my oily skin. I couldn't live without it!
no kidding stay put power
my eye doctor told me i blink a lot, i touch my face and especially my eyes a lot, i work @ a fast food chain and my face gets really oily and my eyes are prone to sweating. i had to try this when i first got it. i put it on and slapped on some eye shadow and went off to work. 8 hrs later i come home and my eye shadow is still there, no creases, and no watery look. i could not believe that i had ever gone without this product. a couple of days ago i also put eye shadow on but i forgot to prime first. 3 hrs into my job i took a look in the bathroom mirror and there was no eye shadow. i was so confused until i got home and realized why. if you don't prime you don't get long lasting color.
I have very oily skin and within a few hours my eye shadow has a line in the crease of my eye lids. I have used this product for 2 weeks now and I love it! For once I have found something that keeps my eye shadow in place all day!
I have worn bare minerals for over 4 years now but never really wore the eye shadows b/c they seemed to wear off after a while so I decided to purchase this, and let me tell you, this works amazing!!! My eye shadow is the same from when I put it on to when I wake up the next morning! It even lasted thru several hours of tears! I will never be without this again!
My favorite BE product ever
I first encountered this great product when I bought Bare Escentuals' Tutorials: Intro to Eyes about 2 years ago and I have continued to use it daily since then. It smooths and calms the eyelids and stays on all day. I wear it often without eye shadow, because it brightens my eyes and prevents the oily eyelid effect I often get later in the afternoon. I love how it keeps eyeshadow fresh and bright. It creates the perfect surface for any eye colors or liners whether you use Bare Escentuals or other brands. If you do a dramatic look like foiling or the cat eye, you don't have to worry about it wearing off or smearing. And there's no funny feel to it, like some other products that are stiffening or greasy. It's great for sensitive skin. And a little tiny dab goes a long way. I even use a little dab under my eyes, to cover dark circles and prepare my skin for concealer. It helps keep eye liner put. I highly recommend it!
The prime time primer for the eyes is the very best!!! I have very oily eyelids and it was such a pain to see my eye shadow get clunky and wear off by midday. Now with just a tiny amount of primer, my shadow looks fresh and stays in place until i wash it off. Now I'm wanting to try the brightener primer next!
