Rated 5 out of 5 by Krystalpurple 5 in 1 BB Cream Eyeshadow is great!
This product goes on so creamy and has great coverage. I find that I put it on with my ring finger after dabbing a little in the middle of my eyelid. I use it as a primer. It helps my bareminerals eyeshadow go on so smoothly and stays put until I take it off. It's worth the money. I'm going to try some other suggestions about how to get more product out of the bottle.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mel B. Great Primer
I use this everyday to help keep my eye shadow from creasing, and my make-up pulls 12 hour days. It does the job amazingly and my shadow stays put, and still looks vibrant, at bed time; my one HUGE complaint it the packaging. The brush, when unscrewed, can only reach the very middle of the bottle, and I'm forced to find a way to scrape the bottom half of container, as well as the collector, to where the brush can easily get it. I really wish there was a better delivery method for this product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer A Game Changer and A Creme Shadow breakthrough
The Nude is slightly lighter than my skin color. I bypass the applicator, finding it goes on smoothly with a brush or my finger.
When I first saw the BB 5in1 eye cremes it was at a messy Ultra display case where they were all opened, dried out, glittery and clumpy looking. The only color that even looked decent was the nude. I'm so glad this was added as a tester because the Ulta display did a great I justice to this amazing product!
After falling in love with the product that stays on until you take it off, protects your skin, improves it, is buildable and looks incredibly natural... I went ahead and bought the Spice and the Wine. The spice is an almost exact match to my skin, a subtle darker and the Wine is a gorgeous dark taupe that is perfect for evening or dress up for me.
I cannot stand glitter or pearly eye shadows and prefer matte. Ironically this has a scant amount of glitter that takes a lot to notice...really isn't glittery. It stood up and surpassed my high standards for creme and powder eye shadow that's matte.
please NEVER discontinue! as I feel Bare Minerals has trail blazed with this product and I'd bet other cosmetic and skincare company's will try to follow their lead.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tinker1 The best!
This is the best eye primer / shadow. I love the depth of color and coverage. I wear it as my eye shadow base and build on it.
Others have stated the bottle is a problem. I have found that you can remove the inner part in order to get to what is left in the bottle. Take a pair of tweezers and pry it right out. There is a lot of product left in the bottom. Beware, you will have a lot on your wand.
Rated 5 out of 5 by WelshWitch How to get more bang for your buck with BB cream eyeshadow!
After reading some of the BB reviews, there seems to be a problem with too much product remaining in the tube.
SOLUTION: You will need a small pen knife. Very carefully slide this under the plastic seal at the opening of the tube. Pry up the seal carefully. I usually get tweezers and pull it out of the tube. You are now able to access the rest of the product. Make sure the top is on tight when done.
I use a Large Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush to apply the BB cream eye shadow. Dab some BB on your eyelid, with a light touch move the color around your lid and brow area to desired coverage. I found if there was too much BB on the lid it had a tendency to crease. If this happens buff lightly with the Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush. More BB should not be needed. My eyelids are oily but this has worked for me.
Rated 3 out of 5 by JenTay Good Primer, Bad Bottle
The primer itself is AWESOME and does the job just as expected. Goes on creamy and makes my eye shadow last all day. HOWEVER, the bottle design is AWFUL. Once you use the stuff right down the center there is no way to move the brush around to touch the edges in order to get the primer on it. You end up wasting over 3/4 of the bottle. Not happy with that at all.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jenny33707 Love the product, hate the bottle
I love this product. I previously used primor but received this product is a make up kit....and haven't gone back to primor since! This product is great because you can use it as a primor or you can even use it alone. The only thing I am not thrilled with is the bottle. I am getting to the point where my bottle is fairly empty and am having a hard time getting the last remaining portions of my product onto the applicator. I wish you could dissemble the top of the bottle so that you could get your brush in to scoop up the remaining product on the sides.
I have found several make up kits include this product, which makes them a bargain. For example, the BB is normally $19 but for $29 I got the BB and an eyeline, eye shadow duo and brush! Bargains can be found if you look. (And that was a full priced kit! Not on sale!)
Rated 5 out of 5 by KishaNoel Love It!
I've been looking for a product like this for awhile now and am so happy to have been introduced to this creamy eyeshadow. I love it! It's perfect for the ladies whose skin is beginning to get a little thin around the eyes. It never creased or flakes. I have enjoyed using it everyday.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer LOVE LOVE LOVE
I LOVE this product! I've never had an issue with it showing crease lines which I've always had a problem with. Stays in place until you take it off. It's easy to use more than one color. Just wish there were some darker (brown) colors. It is a little expensive for the size, especially when you like all the shades, but I HAVE TO HAVE IT!
Rated 5 out of 5 by labgirl AMAZING!!
I bought this product on a whim....I love eyeshadows, but I've never been able to find one that doesn't crease within a couple of hours. The first time I tried the 5-in-1 I was disappointed because it did crease, but the next time I used the Prime Time primer and it worked SO much better! I literally could not believe that the eyeshadow AND eyeliner didn't budge by bedtime! I ordered the Divine Wine and although I thought it would be more plum-y, it's actually brown. Normally I wouldn't use brown shadow because I think it ages me and makes my hooded eyelids look even more hooded, but the Divine Wine is awesome!
This product is fairly dry in consistency (I thought it would be creamier), so you must work quickly. I followed the tips and placed some on the back of my hand and worked it onto my lids with a finger. It's pretty foolproof, too....even though you have to work fast, it blends beautifully and forgiving if not placed perfectly.
I'll definitely be ordering more shades. If you're on the fence about this product, give it a try, but use the Prime Time primer underneath! The 5-in-1 made me a believer that eyeshadow CAN look beautiful, not crease and for someone who's never been very good at applying eyeshadow so it looks flattering, this stuff is a miracle!
