Prime Time Eyelid Primer
Eye Shadow Staying Power
I bought the BE Prime Time Eyelid Primer about a month ago to try it out. In the past, I've used an eye primer by another cosmetics brand (M**) but didn't notice any difference - my eye shadow would fade towards the end of the work day. And so, I didn't use eye primer after that thinking that it was just a waste of my money. With the suggestion of a sales associate at a local BE boutique store, I decided to try their product and I noticed that my eye shadow still looked fresh at the end of the day....AMAZING!!!
Different than I thought
I was excited when I bought this product home, but I would be lying if I said I loved it. It does have a nice texture and blends out really nicely, which is a good thing. The problem for me was that it made little red bumps on my eyelids, which is not good and maybe just my skin, but still bad. Also, for the amount of product that you pay for, I don't think $18 dollars is worth it to buy this product; maybe if it was bigger.
Oily eyelids? Try this!
Another BE product that I won't be able to live without! My eyeshadow stays on all day now. I mean it, ALL DAY. My oily eyelids have met their match. Whatever small amount of creasing does happen (I'll be honest, there still is a little by the end of the day), does not completely remove the shadow from my eyelids. And I'm going to try the concealer tip another reviewer gave. What a great idea, thank you for sharing!
A-MA-ZING! Okay, I am an eye primer user, really, and this is quite possiblly the best one I have used so far. Note: Unfortunetly I have some drying and peeling on my eyelids and under my eye, it is very annoying, and I have always had to use some kind of moisturizer mixed with whichever eye primer I used. (I used urban decay before, but it would cause some burning on my eye lids and leave my skin flaky and chalky looking. Not attractive) BUT NOT NOW! BE eye primer goes on smooth, is extremely gentle on the skin of my eye lids, does NOT leave redness, and my eye makeup goes on flawlessly and lasts ALL day. It is the best eye primer I have ever used!
It simply............. WORKS!
A thin layer is all that's needed and your shadow will stay on all day with NO creasing.
Primer goes on smoothly and dries quickly to a very smooth & matte finish, making shadow application easy.
TIP: Apply very carefully, making sure to ONLY get the primer on your eyelids! example: if you touch the bridge of your nose with primer on your finger, it will look "ashy" and "cakey" when you put foundation or well rested on in that spot because the minerals will cling to the primer.
Great product that actually works!
Keeps Eye Make-up even ALL DAY!
I was a skeptic when the BE store clerk suggested Prime Time Primer. I've used primers before and found they would get cracked or crumbly throughout the day. The bareMinerals Prime Time Primer is soft and smooth. A little bit goes a long way. I wish there was a cleaner way to apply it - but oh well! I like that it keeps my eye color in place. I don't get eye-color creasing anymore. It also adds a nice dimension of shade, shine, and color underneath your base eye color. I'm eager to try some different shades!
BE Eyeshadow Stays on fresh through out the day
GREAT BUY!!! BE eyeshadow Stays on fresh throughout the day with this primer!!!!
Wow! Just... Wow!
This product is amazing! I have super oily eyelids and rarely used eyeshadow because it would end up in my creases and down in the outer corners of my eyes, which would cause stinging and irritation (not good when you wear contact lenses!). Even my mascara would end up leaving a funky black arch on my upper eyelid, right underneath my brows. Embarassing!! The first time that I used this primer, I was blown away. I even slept in my makeup and the next morning, it still looked like I had just put it on! I never wear eyeshadow without it now! And thank you for changing the packaging! Nothing like putting the primer on one eye and then realizing that I didn't have any left to put on the other eye! Thank you for an outstanding primer (and at a reasonable price too!)
Every BE user should have this! Don't delay!
I waited awhile to buy this because I thought it wouldn't make a big difference in how my eye shadow applied onto my eyes & that I didn't need additional staying power. Boy was I wrong!
When using this I don't have to apply as much eye shadow (as I did without the primer) to get the desired look. So now I will get additional uses out of my fave eye shadows - SCORE!
Before I tried the Primer I didn't think my eye shadow faded throughout the day so I did an experiment. I applied the exact same eye look with and without the Primer. There was a huge difference at the end of the day! Without the Primer the colors became more muted as the day went on, but with the Primer the colors looked as fresh & true to form as when I first applied them.
Another plus, since this goes on sheer it doesn't interfere with any of the eye shadows at all. Also, you only have to use a small amount to cover the entire eyelid so this tube lasts a long time.
This product is a no-brainer necessity!
