Prime Time Eyelid Primer
Can't believe it lived without it!
I received a small tester of eyelid primer in a collection I bought quite awhile ago, and just recently found it and decided to finally try it. Now, I can't believe I went for so long without it!! I have somewhat oily skin, and used to get frustrated when my eye shadow would collect in the crease by the end of the day. With the Eyelid Primer, the eye shadow stays put until I take it off--literally, it stayed in place even overnight! It makes it much easier to create interesting looks that last, and as a bonus, makes my eyes feel moisturized. I'm excited to try the tinted eyelid primers next!
Brings Your Eyes and Eye Colors to Life
You only need a VERY small amount of this primer. Not even a pea sized amount. Just a tiny amount. It spreads easily, goes on smooth and lasts all day. I took a flight at 5:30am and it's 10:43pm now and it has held up all day long. It's my first time trying eyelid primer EVER and I'm really impressed. It's good for making your eye colors come out and show up better on your eyes. I highly recommend this product. There are other eyelid primers, but I haven't had the experience with them so I tried the original just to try it out. It's great and it doesn't crease or clump up. Try it! It's a small bottle when you get it, but it will last a long time if you use it sparingly as it should be used. I added a photo for you all to see the size and also took the cap off in a second photo so you can see what it looks like on the inside as well.
Great staying power!
I'm that friend that does everyone's makeup whether for going out or for the BIG day, I will never not use this product! As a few people already mentioned, you only need an itty bitty amount for the perfect silky coating. I often use what is left when I apply along the bottom lash line since I often do the sultry smokey eyes. It keeps any eyeliner or shadows from sliding down my face as the day goes on. No more raccoon eyes! I always have two tubes. One for my at home kit and one for my to-go kit. Good in humid weather also.
So glad I tried it
I had seen this product before, and thought it was a gimicky thing and a waste of money. Boy was I WRONG! I thought my makeup stayed good enough before, but then I saw a sale for this product and a review raving about it, so I tried it. I will never go without this product again! It's so creamy and smooth, my eye makeup goes on so much more even then before. And it lasts all day, no exceptions. I put it on in the morning, and if I get to bed really late and don't wash my face I'll wake up and my eye makeup is still in place. It's amazing. This is now a must have in my makeup bag. And don't be fooled when you get it and the tube is small. A very small amount is all you use each day, and that little tube really lasts. I use it every day without fail and can't believe how long I go before I need to reorder. Worth every penny!!! You've gotta try it.
For many years I've "suffered" without the use of gorgeous eye colors. This product has turned my eye-shadow wearing days inside out!!! Without it, eye colors are not as vibrant, last only hours, and creasing happens in less than an hour. With it--complete eye-beauty-perfection! NO creasing, STUNNING, VIBRANT eye colors, lasts ALL DAY LONG! How did I ever live without this stuff????
Key to vibrant eyes!
I purchased the Prime Time Eyelid Primer at a BE Boutique. I'd been using the Matte & Mineral Veil for a few weeks, loved it & decided to branch out to other products. I experimented with the READY eyeshadow I purchased, with & without the Eyelid Primer. What a difference when using the Primer-it lived up to the claims and then some. It's amazing! The shadow application was more smooth (if that's possible), colors were more vibrant, & it still looks exactly as I've applied them in the morning at the end of a long day. It's a daily part of my eyeshadow routine to bring the Bare Minerals colors to life. You only need a tiny dab of this product to spread from lashline to brows, so the tube will last an incredibly long time. So far, I've loved all the Bare Minerals products I've tried!
Love this Primer!!
Without this primer my eye-shadow and eyeliner will disappear after two hours because of my oily eye lids but not anymore!!!! I use this primer all the time and my eye-shadow and eyeliner stays on for hours! This is the first and last eye primer I will ever use!!!
Original is the best.
When I take the time to do my makeup, I want it to last. I used to get so frustrated that I would put in the time and effort in the morning, but by 3pm you couldn’t really tell I put any make up that day. And then my sister showed me the Prime Time. Now, just take a few seconds – literally, to put a tiny amount on one pointer finger, rub between my two pointer fingers, then swipe on each eye from eye lashes to eye brows. Boom, done. A small amount goes a long ways. So one tube will last a long time. I have NOT been impressed with the colored and brightening versions. I guess the sequels just don’t live up to the original. This is super smooth, and doesn’t feel heavy or chalky. I wear it over my foundation. I wear contacts and it never bothers my eyes. If I get a little sloppy, because it is not very colored you can’t tell, which is nice. It doesn’t change the color of my eye shadow, and if anything makes the colors more vibrant. I like that I get the intense color without having to ‘build it up’ by putting a lot on. For me, it is totally worth spending the extra $18 so my make up stays on. Because if your make up is falling off, isn’t that kind of a waste of time and money if it doesn’t last?
Cannot live without
Picked this up when it first came out and it is something I cannot do without. With just a tiny bit the primer let my eye color stay on from 6 AM-8 PM during my friend's big day. My eyes outlasted everyone's and I stand by this product. It is a must have in my make up bag!
Without this primer, my eye makeup is gone by noon. With this, I can go from morning to late night with my makeup still looking fresh. I love this so much!
