Prime Time Eyelid Primer
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!
Never Check Your Eyeshadow AGAIN!
You'll come home looking exactly like you did when you left! At lease in the eyeshadow department!
All Day Lasting
This eyelid primer is heaven! I LOVE this product. My eye makeup lasts all day long even the colors that are in the crease.
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.
Why didn't I try this sooner? Normally at the end of the day my eyelids are shiny, what little eyeshadow left is a dark clump in my crease and my eye liner is smudged (not by choice). Just used this for the first time yesterday and oh what a difference. After an 8-hour workday followed by two hours playing beach volleyball, my eye makeup looked like I had just applied it. This primer is magical! Best purchase EVER!
Can't live without !
This is by far the best eyelid primer out there and worth every penny. I stick to the original or brightening but it has made a huge difference in my eye makeup look. My eyeshadow looks just as great at 7pm as it did at 7pm without creasing or fading. It really keeps the sensitive skin on your eyelids in great shape too! A must buy!
Prime Time Eyelid Primer
I'm pretty new to BareEssentials makeup but loving it. I bought some eyecolor and did notice that when I used eyeliner with it, it faded over about 6 hours. But then I used the primer and there was absolutely no fading what so ever. My eye makeup stayed put for 12+ hours. I do believe that it is a but expensive for the size, but you don't need that much of it to make it work. I'm looking forward to using this when school starts back up and not having to touch up!
This stuff is amazing. It makes the eye shadows and eye liner powders so much brighter. I also use it with my well-rested eye brightener and with concealer. It makes quite a bit of a difference. My eye liner does not run under my eyes and my eye shadow and eye liner on the top of my eyelid don't get mixed up anymore!
A must for eyeshadow
This product works wonders for eyeshadow. I cannot use eyeshadow without it . It brings out the color and the colors do not crease over time and I have put it through many tests.
Love this primer
For months, I had been using an eyelid primer from another company and my eyeshadow would always sit in my creases by mid-day. Everyday I would have to reapply my eyeshadow during my lunch break and even in the evening when I'd get home from work. After using Prime Time Eyelid Primer for the past couple of days, I haven't had to reapply any eyeshadow! If you have issues with your eyeshadow getting stuck in your creases, I highly recommend this primer...it will do what it's supposed to do and will last all day long.
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!)
