Prime Time Brightening Eyelid Primer
Not for all skin types
I hated the two times I tried this. My eye make up, which usually lasts all day and into the evening, was clumping in the crease and was greasy in feel. Thanks, but I'll pass on this one.
This keeps my eyes looking great all day and has just enough glimmer to make them pop. WONDERFUL!
I got my make up done at my local BE store. The lady put this Brightening Primer on my eyes before applying shadow. I wondered, "Whats the point? The shadow is going to cover it up anyway" but WOW. There was a HUGE difference. She also showed me that I can mix the brightener and a shadow (in the lid) and then apply to give the shadow a different look. For an example she used Skyline, and it was so cool how different it looked when mixed. I bought it then and there! Can't wait to try the Pearl brightening :)
I've always had problems w/eyeshadow creasing. Even eyeliner creasing or smudging into my upper lids. This product is magic for my eyes. The regular primer is soft and easy to apply. And this "brightening" one works just as well. Its nice that its in a tube- so my fingers are repeatedly dipping into the product. It evens out the tone of my eyelids. It goes on smooth (I use my ring finger) and dries instantly. A little goes a long way. I can immediately apply eyeshadow- therefore no waiting to dry time is needed. This stuff helps "pop" the color of any eyeshadow I use. And it keeps that color in place, all day. The shadow doesn't crease and my eyeliner stays in place perfectly as well. I tried another brand's "cream colour base" and it creases terribly. This "brightening" primer has a gold shimmer. It has a delightful 'sparkle' that can go day or evening. This "brightening" one really 'pops' & holds the eye shadows well. (I use a brush for my shadow application.) I also have very sensitive skin & eyes. This product doesn't cause any irritation what so ever.
Good as a stand-alone
I have always loved the Eyelid Primer since I was first introduced to it - my eye make-up just isn't the same without it! I'm not quite as fond of the Brightening so far.
I like the product, but for me... it works better as a stand alone with a more casual look. I got a sample that I've been trying out for about a week. The golden sheen/shimmer changes the way the colors look; certain combinations seem to almost fade out unless I use a lot more product. I might give the Pearl one a try and see if it's any better with my skin.
Best eye primer I have ever used.
I love that b.e. came out with a brightening eye primer. I love this. Now I use the original to help cover under my eyes, and I use this on the lid. The original is great for a foundation under bisque, helps conceal better. This one emphasizes your eye color and your eye shadows. It also helps the new liner pencils to glide more smoothly.
Best eyelid primer ever!!
I absolutely love this eyelid primer!! Not only does it make your eyeshadow stay on all day (sometimes two days) with no creasing or fading, but the soft golden shimmer color is beautiful alone or layered with other BE eyeshadows. I like to use this product all the way to my eyebrows as it makes a wonderful highlighter for my arches. You cannot go wrong with this product. It is a must-have!!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE
I had never used any kind of eye primer before. With my oily skin, I've always had issues with my eyeshadow traveling into the crease my eyelid. I love and use Bare Minerals so I decided this would be the best place to start. I chose this particular one because I thought the color looked beautiful in the picture. I had no idea how hard and fast I was going to fall for this product. Little did I know, the very first day I wore it would become the test of all tests. I put it on with my make-up in the morning and went about my day. I instantly loved what it did to my eyeshadow color. Gorgeous. I wore it all day (roller-skating in a warm rink, and even a late night trip to the ER with my sister and sick nephew). At 2am (while sitting around in the ER), my eyes still looked amazing. I even made a comment about the primer to my sister. I'll definitely be buying this product again and again. I cannot say enough good things about it.
I love this primer! The gold color is perfect, for days when I don't have a lot of time to do eye makeup I just wear this alone w/some eyeliner and I'm out the door! It gives my eyeshadow a little extra glimmer. Be careful not to use too much. I love this and it will be my only eye primer from now on.
Love, love, love this! The primer has just the perfect amount of golden hue to it that I no longer need to use a highlighter under my eyebrow and the eyeshadow & liner really ad-hear to the primer leaving my eye makeup looking great all day long, even after working out during lunch. A must have!!!!!
