Clarins Instant Light Eye Perfecting Base ($25) is a new eyeshadow primer that helps smooth, brighten, and even out eye lids in a flash. Yeah, I got little excited about this one. As a rabid fan girl of Benefit Lemon Aid I do so admit to cheating with other products in the hope I can replicate the same brightening awesomeness that Lemon Aid provides. And Clarins Instant Light Eye Perfecting Base seemed spot on for just what I was looking for!

E.L.F. Cosmetics has teamed up with Disney yet again to do create a princess-y look featuring Snow White.
Let’s take a look at this new beauty book!
Tarte Colored Clay CC Eye Primer Stick ($19) is a new universal eye primer with color correcting colored clay that launched with the Tarte Fall 2014 Collection. I love the idea of this as sort of a Benefit Lemon-Aid type product that can used all its own to brighten up my eyes without eyeshadow on top. I don’t think I’ll ever find a product to replace my beloved Lemon Aid but I like looking that’s for sure.
Tarte Colored Clay CC Eye Primer Stick is definitely marketed as a product you can use to brighten up your eyelids as well as a prep for your eyeshadows.
How does it perform?
NYX Proof It Waterproof Eyeshadow Primer ($7) is NYX’s newest eyeshadow primer for Fall 2014 that promises not only to intensify shadows but also to waterproof them.
Granted, I didn’t nor will I attempt to swim in eyeshadow so we’ll just have to test this one against the warmer weather eh? It’s probably great if you have oily lids as that’s where the “waterproof” benefits will kick in!
Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer recently passed over my desk and I realized how much I disliked the original Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer so I wasn’t sure how I’d like this eyeshadow primer.
The thing is I thought maybe the two products were potentially formulated the same but good news, they aren’t!
Let’s take a look!
