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.
Beyond thrilled with this product!
I have always had very, very sensitive eyes and that was one of the reasons that I turned to Bare Minerals to begin with. Everything that I have tried, from foundation to lipstick, has not only performed as promised, it has OUTPERFORMED my wildest expectations.
The Eyelid Primer was no exception to this rule, but I have to tell you, it is beyond what I hoped for. It goes on like a whisper, silken to the touch and it blends into the eyelids so easily that there is no reason to wait more than the time it takes to select your applicator to begin putting on your eye shadow.
It never makes my eyelids itch or sticky, as other products from the department stores have done in the past. It ALWAYS keeps my eye smooth and crease-free, even after 12+ hours of wear. There is no fading, no creasing, no need to touch up unless I need to transition from day to evening, and the additional shadow goes on equally as flawlessly.
A little goes a very long way and the fact that there is never any eye irritation of any kind makes this a miracle in a tube as far as I am concerned, and a value on top of it.
This is one item that is an absolute MUST HAVE.
I have greasy eyelids and struggle to find products that stay put all day. This primer gets that job done. It is not drying like many primers and makes it so easy to apply shadow and liner. I have tried the other BM primers (colored and the BB eye shadow) and this original primer is by far the best. If you struggle with greasy eye lids this is the answer to your problems!
I cannot use this product.
I have never been so disappointed in a BE product. When I first opened it, I could not squeeze any out of the tube with two hands. I finally got a tiny amount out, and it was not creamy, it was like lead coming out of a mechanical pencil which broke off when I touched it with a makeup brush. I messed around with a pin at the end of the tube so I could try to get some out. It comes out a little better, but it is still not good with a brush. If I use my finger, I can put some of it on.
I have another Prime Time Primer in a different shade, and it is not like this.
I will not buying this again.
I feel like this works pretty well. I can't decide if I like the 5-in-1 primer better but they both brighten. I'm not sure if I like the matte finish or not. It almost seems drying but my shadows stay all day, there are no creases, and it doesn't fade. It also doesn't get oily either. If you are traveling I would say it is the perfect item to take. It just seems very small for the cost but I do like the product.
I never put on eye shadow without first applying this primer. It really helps any color POP! It lasts all day without creasing or dulling. It's great!
this little tube is the cat's meow---makes your eye shadow perform at it's utmost best. keeps it from fading and creasing. and it's easy to apply!! you only need the smallest amount, which is good cuz the tube is small!!!
Works well but packaging needs work
I love the product, but it is hard to get out of the tube when it gets to about half full. You end up squeezing way too much out and waste it. You can't cut the end off the tube to get the last of it because it dries out. I liked the old twist up tube better.
A must-have item
I have been experimenting with and perfecting my eye makeup since I was twelve, and yet, somehow I have never played with eyelid primer. I never really thought that my colors faded too much. After my first time using this primer, I realized how wrong I have been all this time! I was totally shocked that my eyeshadow looked like I literally just applied it, even twelve hours later! I live in Arizona, and it is crazy hot here, and I also have naturally oily eyelids, but despite that my shadow still looked flawless after using this primer. Ladies, you really do need this, even if you think you don't. Also, it is more tinted than I had anticipated, so really you could use it with no shadow if you wanted (just to hold liner in place, which it also does perfectly!).
