Prime Time Eyelid Primer
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!
This stuff really works!
I was doubtful about this product and I'm certainly glad I was wrong. This primer works really well. Lasts all day. Holds my eyeshadow in place and helps "pop" the colors of my eye shadows. It also keeps my eyeliner in place as well. I've always had issues with eye shadows creasing and wearing off by the end of my work day. This evens out my skin tone and applies evenly, easily and smoothly. I've used drugstore brand eye shadow and high end. Both shadows hold in place all day. This stuff is amazing! A little on the expensive side comparatively to other brands, but well worth the price! I've tried another brand that creased within minutes and additionally smeared my eyeliner into my crease. The other brand also wore off of my lids as if I never had any eyeshadow to begin with.
Love this product!!!
i have problems keeping eye shadow on cause i'm constantly rubbing my eyes, my beautiful colors didn't have a chance, but i've been using this thanks to my best friend and it's making a huge difference im really happy with the results. plus my eyes are sensitive it doesn't irritate them at all.

Like most reviews have said, this stuff is awesome at keeping your eyeshadow locked in place (no matter what the brand). Several of my non-BE wearing friends use this primer. I've tried many eyelid primers and this one is a far superior product.
**Some other ways I like to use Prime Time Eyelid Primer**
I apply a little under my eyes, both where I'd use concealer and eye liner, I use it to prime my eyelashes, and also on my eyebrows. The BE brow make-up is fantasic on it's own, but this just gives it that little extra staying power.
All in all, a very, very high quality eyelid primer.
I'm a happy customer!
This is my first day using the eyelid primer, and I must say, I'm impressed. I put my eyeshadow on at 6:30 this morning. It is now 4:30, and it looks just like it did 10 hours ago! I wasn't sure if I should have high expectations for this product or not, but I'm definitely glad I decided to give it a shot. Great stuff!
I can not believe my eyeshadow and eyeliner are still on and not smudged or creased after 10 hours! It looks like I just applied it! I am never going without this again.
I'M ONE OF MANY WITH VERY SENSITIVE SKIN, ESPECIALLY IN THE EYE AREA. I ALSO HAVE NO EYELASHES TO SPEAK OF (REALLY; BAD THYROID). THIS SWEET PRODUCT DOES AN AMAZING JOB... HOLDING THE COLOR IN PLACE, PREVENTING THE CREASING THAT USUALLY HAPPENS AFTER A FEW HOURS, AND--THE BEST PART--KEEPING MY EYELINER IN PLACE ALL DAY LONG. WHAT A DIFFERENCE NOW THAT I AM USING PRIME TIME!!
