Wanna save a few bucks off your Too Faced Shadow Insurance bill? Pick up some NP Set Eye Primer at your local Target for $15 bucks!
Kinda hated this on first squeeze dears.
What is it?
An eye primer! Pretty much like your beloved Too Faced Eye Insurance and Urban Decay Primer Potion to keep the shadow on your peeps in order minus fading and creasing!
As I mentioned above kinda hated it on first squeeze as the formula comes out separated and oily, not cool. You end up with a buncha of oil separated from the pigmented which isn’t particularly pretty in my opinion. Solution, give the tube a gentle massage prior to squeezing the formula out and you’ll be singing a little ditty thanks to that trick.
It sticks like glue baby! The formula is made up of a buncha weird stuff in my humblest such as jojoba, sunflower, and rosehip oils….not exactly what you’d consider using to HOLD eye shadow in place but it still manages to work. It blends in easily but it needs a quick flash or two to get it to set so do your hair or your foundation while it settles into place. It feels every so slightly silicon-like kinda like Too Faced Shadow Insurance but with a way thinner consistency. After it dries down it literally feels like a small mask has settled over your lids aka bulletproof vest for your shadow.
After shadow application I was good to go for the day. Pretty much held up all day and my shadow was fresh and crease-free for the next 14 hours of my life until my trusty Lancome Bi-Facil came in and lifted it off my lids.
Pretty nice stuff and a little cheaper than Shadow Insurance which will set you back $17. NP Set Eye Primer is $15 and 0.34 oz where as Too Face Shadow Insurance is $17 and 0.35 oz so you save a little chunk of sale. Also helps that Target has 15% off NP Set from time to time so extra moolah saved.
I prob won’t buy again as I don’t like tube style application for my primer. I pretty much follow the Urban Decay Primer Potion religion however those who like Shadow Insurance will find this fits right into their heart and wallet ($2 saved yay!).
Nice stuff, worth a haul if you’re on the hunt for eye primer.
