Prime Time Brightening Eyelid Primer in Brightening Pearl
Glad It Was a Free Sample...
I was excited to try the Brightening Primer - always looking for new products to help me look younger, more radiant, provide a healthy glow, etc! I took a TINY dot of the product and dabbed it on both of my eyelids AND under my eyes (hey, that's REALLY where I need the brightening anyway, right?#. BAD IDEA. I haven't had so much glitter on my face since 1999! While the gold glitter might look pretty and subtle just on the eyelids under an eyeshadow, it doesn't stay there. Even if I had NOT put some under my eyes, there would still have been glitter all over my face. It spread as I applied my foundation, concealer, mineral veil, etc. and is still on my face hours later. Even with proper application #not for the under-eyes!), I'm not a fan of this product due to how quickly and how obviously it creases. I may try using this as more of an eyeshadow base for certain looks but this will definitely not be a product I plan to purchase.
I really like this primer, but my eyes are a little to sensitive to wear it regularly. For some reason it makes my eyes a little watery.
I've been a huge fan of the Prime Time Eyelid Primers since I started using BE products. I had originally gotten it in a kit in other colors and the neutral one but was thrilled to try this one! I don't normally wear eyeshadow but this stuff is a huge help when I want I brighten my eyelids. It definitely helps to make me look more awake! The color is absolutely perfect and gives you just the right amount where you don't really look like you're wearing any kind of eye color but at the same time your lids look brighter. I love this stuff!
Gives my shadow staying power!
I love Bare Mineral eye shadow, but it never had that "staying power" for me. By the end of the day, my eye lids would be barren of color except for my crease which seemed to collect every bit of shadow resulting in what I would delicately call a "mud flap" since that's what it looked like by days end.
I received this primer yesterday and for the first time my shadow is still ON my lid and my crease is virtually shadow collection free. I applied my makeup at 8am and here it is almost noon and my eyes look just as they did four hours ago (and this is even after a bout of hormonal prenancy tears). I can't speak highly enough of this product and will definitely be using it from now on!
I am already a huge fan of the regular and brightening eyelid primers so had to give the brightening pearl a try. It provides the same amazing base as the others. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 out of 5 is because I feel the tint is a bit too white/silver for my skin tone. This would look amazing on someone with fair skin or cool undertones. If you've got warmer undertones like me, stick with the normal brightening formula which has a light gold tint.
I love this product! I have a pink hue to my skin tone so it blends in nicely. I always use just a little dab before I put on my Bare Minerals eye shadow. I've never had issues with the eyeshadow caking in the creases whenever I wear the primer.
It works! Buy this!
I was skeptical of this when they put it on me in the store, but I love it! It is literally the only thing that keeps my eye shadow on for long periods of time. I can even wake up the next morning and my eye shadow is still on. Its amazing. The pearl color has some sparkle to it and even looks good by itself.
Simple and great!
With this primer my eyeshadow lasts practically all day even after the gym on a long workday! You could wear it alone to give your eyelids a little color or nice glow. I will continue to use this product.
Love all the prime time products
I loved the original prime time eyelid primer and love this brightening primer just as much!
i LOVE this product SO MUCH! no more eyeshadow crease at the end of the day!!!!!! that is so annoying, to reapply eyeshadow! this FIXED THAT ISSUE! YAY!! i love the sheen to this, i used to use a high sheen liquid highlighter tube from ELF and i used to use it in the corners of my eyes, my cheek bones and the corners of my lips to make me looked well rested.. well i use this now, it stays on longer and its beyond beautiful on a little on my cheek bones. plus my lip gloss stays put when i use a little on my lips.. they should make a super sized one! id buy 10!!! hahha yay! i get so many compliments on how i look well rested and my make up is BEAUTIFUL!
