Prime Time Brightening Eyelid Primer in Brightening Pearl
Useful both on lids and on dark circles
A lot of reviewers are saying that this product is hard to blend, but I find it easier to use than the original primer. Try patting it on the lids, not rubbing. I did not find the sparkle to be overwhelming, probably because I have very fair skin. My eyeshadow color was not brightened or altered by the primer. On my undereyes, I use this primer as a base for Well-rested and it looks perfect on me. This product is a dream come true and has completely changed the look of my eyes (in a very good way!). I would recommend it to anyone with fair skin, particularly if you find the Well-rested to be a little bit too yellowish or gold for your skin.
I love this primer! The skin around my eyes tends to get darker as the day goes on and this primer combats that! I was using the original eyelid primer with cultured pearl eyeshadow to keep my lids from darkening, but this makes it so much easier, just one step. A little does go a long way though. After I blend it on my lids I use the leftover shimmer on my finger and run it under my eyes to help keep my mascara from smudging. Works Great!
I love this primer. It has a little glimmer so you can wear it alone or under your shadows.
I am looking forward to trying the other eye primer products. It is great if you are in a hurry and don't have time to apply your full eye make-up routine. Sometimes I wear alone and then use a bit a mascara to finish up the look.
Good primer, good to brighten up eye area
I think this is a bit too sparkly as an everyday primer though it looks good as a quick eyecolor in a pinch. It does change the look of many of your eyecolors and it does work well as a primer but I don't like it for an everyday primer. It would work well to vamp up your eyecolors for a night out though.
I love B.E. products, especially the variety of eyeshadow colors. The problem was, because of the way my eyelids are, the color would just cake into the crease. One of the workers a B.E. suggested I try this primer. I was skeptical, but figured I'd give it a try. It works absolutely fantastic! I'm usually reapplying makeup at some point during the workday, but with this, I don't. It even looks great by itself. I'd definitely recommend it.
Bright and shiny
I like the original eyelid primer and use it everyday, but this one is quite cool too, if you want some extra glimmer. Make sure to use just a bit. It gets the job done.
I love the brightening primers, both colors. I think they look great, and really help make the eyecolors stand out. love it, love it.
I love this stuff!
I never really understood how bare minerals eyeshadow lasted before I used this. Everytime I went into the store, and saw the girls wearing it, I just couldn't understand how they got they eyeshadow to stay on. I stopped buying the eyeshadow because I was convinced it was a waste of money, and that eyeshadow primer was just a way of getting me to spend more money on something that I didnt need.
Needless to say, my last trip to BE, one of the girls told me that they have an awesome return policy and that if I try something new and I don't like it... it can go back!
Well, I love this stuff. It looks awesome by itself without eyeshadow for a little glimmer, and it intesifies all of their shadows, and they stay on ALL DAY! The only reason why I returned to BE after purchasing this, was to buy MORE eyeshadow! I love this stuff!!
b.e. makes the best eye primers
I love the original under my concealer. My concealer adheres to it. It lasts all day this way without settling into fine lines. I like the brightening with warmer makeup colors. I like this brightening pearl with cooler makeup colors. You only need the tiniest bit, so the tube will last you a very long time. It smooths out any uneveness on the lid. They can all be worn alone, they are so pretty on the lid. Your makeup will last until you take it off. These go great with the new liners, they glide on with primer under.
not the original
this is not my favorite I would return this if i hadnt thrown away the box. I miss the "pen style" on the old primer..bring it back! This primer has a sheen glow to it and it looks like eyeshadow. It changed the color of my cultured pearl eyeshadow..I prefer the non shimmery primer and it needs to go back to the pen style.. the small tube is not as easy to hold and i have to use my finger. If you do not want shimmer do not order this..I guess i ordered the wrong one thinking it would be better... not my favorite.
