Prime Time Eyelid Primer
I love Bare Escentuals products! I have loved the eyelid primer for several years but I do not think the new eyelid primer in the tube as opposed to the stick that you wind up is as good. I bought it in the tube and it doesn't dry to the matte finish that stays all day. My oily eyelids seem to come through this new stuff by the end of the day. I have been buying the old eyelid primer wherever I can find it.
It never creases
This is the first eye primer that I have ever tried (and I tried many different brands!) that does not cause my eyes to crease by noon. I have extra oily lids so I could never used eye makeup before I found this primer. Thank you BE!!!
Prime Time Eyelid primer
This is the best eyelid primer I've ever used. Although I always prefer to use bareEscentuals eyecolors, the primer works with other brands as well. My eye makeup never smears, whether I accidently rub my eye, or if I'm crying or sweating. It always looks like it was freshly applied. I can literally sleep in my eye makeup and wake up looking like I just put it on. (I've definitely done this more than once.) If you're using bareMinerals eyecolors without this, shame on you. Get it immediately.
Love this Primer
I have oily eyelids and by mid-day will see shadow and eyeliner deminish. Always having to reapply both, but not any more. With Prime Time eyelid primer, I know my shadow and liner are going to last all day. No need to reapply. Place very light application on each eyelid and apply shadow and liner and it will look as good 8 hours later as it did when you first applied them.
Best for under the eyes.
I keep reading reviews that it gets under peoples eyes. I actually purposefully put it there. I use it as a primer, under my foundation and bisque, under my eyes. It really helps to conceal all the bad stuff that lurks under my eye area. I tried the brightening under the eye area, but nothing works under the eyes as good as this one. I prefer the brightening on the lid though. Try it, I think you will be amazed.
I wish I had this product years ago. I don't even use eye shadow with it. It keeps my eyeliner in place and my eyelids matte until I take it off. I wear this product 24-7. Love the new packaging and auto-ship. Thanks Leslie for a great product!!!
I mostly use this under my eye because I guess I get to much on the lid and I have one heck of a mess and the shadow won't come off unless you wash it off. It made it to bold of color.
The new packaging sucks and it seems like the formula may have changed too. It goes on more greasy. I loved the old stuff. Not sure why they changed it....yeah the old packaging had its problems (like how to tell when you are almost out) but at least it did the job. This isn't cutting it. I'm going to have to start shopping for a new brand.
Eye make up stays
I don't normally wear much eye makeup (besides mascara) because it would always wear off. My eye lids after a few hours would be greasy with my either the make up gone or stuck in the corners. So on a whim I just decided to try this stuff thinking it would do nothing. I could not have been more wrong! I put a little bit on before I put on the BE eye shadows (which are also incredible) in the morning and what I do stays! Nothing moves around or gets smeared and the colors stay fresh. This is a must for those who love eye color but can't get it to stay through out the day. The formula for this is truly amazing and I'm so glad I found it! But remember you only need a little bit and then your eye color will last all day. No more re-applying!
A Must Have!
I love this product. I received it as a free sample about 6 months ago. I'm not sure what I did without it. It keeps your eye make-up from sliding off during the day. I am excited that it looks like they have changed the packaging. I like the tube much better than the previous applicator. It was hard to use. Way to go Bare Escentuals!
