Prime Time Eyelid Primer
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!
I love this product! It really works...my eyeshadow does not crease!
Can't live without this!
I LOVE this primer. Before becoming a total BE addict I used a cream shadow in a pale pale pink in place of a primer. I got this as a sample (I think) and ended up buying it the same day I tried it! It goes on beautifully sheer and gives great staying power to my eye colors.
Here is how I multitask with it:
1. All over eye primer (duh)
2. Under eye concealer, sometimes with a TOUCH of Well Rested over for REALLY dark circles
3. As a LIP primer! I do have the Lip Rev-ver Upper, and I apply this OVER it. It helps liners and glosses stay put (when not wearing an actual lipstick color) without changing the color or texture of the gloss. It also works under lipstick too, if you need a little something to grab it and make it stay!
4. As a base for concealer, when I have the occasional blemish.
5. As a primer for my mascara too! My lashes even look HEALTHIER since I started doing this!
Just remember, as with ALL BE products, a LITTLE goes a long way, and it's easier to add more than start all over!
