Prime Time Brightening Eyelid Primer
I really wanted to like this, as I LOVE the normal Prime Time, but I just can’t. To me, it is too think, and feels chunky or chalky on my face. It doesn’t spread smooth, and to get it to spread out (I put it on one pointer finger, then spread between my two pointer fingers first), I feel like I am trying to grind off my eyelid and end up rubbing so hard it hurts. I do put lotion on before I put on my READY foundation, so I would think that would help smooth things out and provide a nice surface for smearing. I never have this problem with the normal Prime Time. Too bad.
primed and ready
I really like the way that this primer can be used as a shadow and that layering with it makes the color stay true all day long. It is smooth and silky and a little goes a long way.
A little goes a long way.
I got this in a kit to try. It makes a nice even canvas for eye make-up. It brightens dark lids and helps the makeup stay in place all day long. Just be sure to use a small amount or it will cause lids to feel caked.
This is one of the first products that I purchased on this site and I am so happy that I did. In the past, eyeshadow never stayed on my eyes. During the day it would just fade away until it was gone. I dont know if my eyelids were oily or what the issue was, but it was extremely annoying. I purchased the brightening eyelid primer and rapture eyeshadow. The primer is by far my favorite! It's a gold sparkly color and it looks fantastic with my blue eyes. I put it on all over my lid and a bit on the inside corner of my eyes. It really does brighten up the eye area, making me look a lot less tired. The color of the eyeshadow is really nice, I can't complain, and it lasts all day. My only complaint is with the container which doesn't keep the eyeshadow in very well. Regardless this was a great purchase and I have no regrets. :)
Perfect eye primer
I love Gold colors, and when I don't feel like wearing eye shadow, I swipe a tiny amount of this on, and I'm ready to go. It is such a pretty color, it's buildable, and blends really well. Stays in place all day!
Does the trick!
I always have a problem with my eye shadow ending up creasing or up above the crease by lunchtime. This never happens if I use this primer. AWESOME product!
For the practical girl
I am not one for buying needless, excessive makeup 'accessories' when I can use the same thing for many areas of my face. I thought, why would I need ANOTHER primer when I already use the all over face Prime Time? Then summer and sweating happened. I used all of my eyelid primer and I'm in a panic to receive my next order! With the Prime Time Eyelid Primer, my eye makeup stays more vibrantly, all day: no smudging, no melting... yet it's easy to wash off with a little baby shampoo. I'm a pregnant mom with 2 toddlers, so you can believe this product is getting tested to its max.
Don't believe the hype
I HATE this product. I decided to give it and the Pearl version a try after reading all the rave reviews about them. You know, the ones that say it makes a HUGE DIFFERENCE in the way your eyeshadow looks, how it BRIGHTENS YOUR WHOLE FACE and REALLY MAKES YOUR EYES POP? Yeah, not so much. My eyeshadow with the primer on underneath is exactly the same color and sheen as my eyeshadow without it.
Does it work as a primer? Yeah, sure. It's a pain in the butt to apply, and good luck getting it to go on evenly, but once you've finished smearing it onto your eyelids (with your FINGER) your eyeshadow will definitely stick to it. It'll stick so well you can forget about BLENDING entirely.
If you're looking for a difficult-to-apply primer that will give you blotchy-looking, unblendable eyeshadow that doesn't look any brighter or sparklier but will stay in place for hours, LOOK NO FURTHER. If not, don't waste your time or money on this one.
Hello, Bright Eyes!!
This lovely golden primer shadow is a wonderful pick-me-up for those days you don't get quite enough sleep. The shimmery pigment reflects light and really brightens up your whole look. Use it from lash to brow, then layer another shadow over your lid and this becomes primer and brow highlight all in one.
Doubles as an eyeshadow!
This is my favorite BE primer. When it applied, it brightens the eye lid with a light golden sheen. Prevents creasing, smuding, and lasts all day when worn alone as an eyeshadow. When I'm pressed for time and needing a quick, "natural" type look, I apply the Brightening Eyelid Primer with Bronze eyeliner, add a little mascara and I'm out the door. I would recommend applying this with your fingertip. I've tried applying with a brush and it didn't work out. The primer stuck to the brush and didn't spread evenly over my eyelid. This is a squeeze tube, so be gentle...a little goes a long way.
