There’s something to be said about an eyeshadow primer that not only holds eyeshadow in place but also successfully acts on its own to create an even, brighter eye look without the aid of shadow application.
Dontcha just love eyeshadow primers that as a concealer for your lid?
I love ‘em!
Napoleon Perdis Eye Will Survive Primer is just the trick for working with or without eyeshadow. The choice is entirely up to you.
Prestige doesn’t update often with newly released products so I kinda jumped on top of their Primed & Ready Eye Primer when I saw it at my local drugstore.
Thing is, I’m shopping for a new eye primer at the moment. Urban Primer Potion just doesn’t cut it for me. The formula seems to have changed and it doesn’t seem to hold my shadow as long as it once did. Crazy I know, but I really stick by the fact that the formula seems to be pretty different.
Let’s take a look, maybe Prestige Primed & Ready Eye Primer will be on the case.
The new Korres Korres Quercetin & Oak Antiageing Eye Primer allows for prepping under and over eyes a la Benefit Stay Don’t Stray. I kinda love the idea of a multitasking primer that works at keeping both my eyeshadow and my concealer in place!
The formula is also rich in antioxidants Quercetin and oak extract, as well as sunflower extract and vitamin E, which helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles while improving skin’s elasticity and texture. Preps, primes, plus anti-aging abilities? Oh yay!
I’m quite happy with Urban Decay Primer Potion, it’s my HG after all (holy grail)! But I was interested in trying Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Shadow Primer for one specific reason, brightening! The formula reminds me of Laura Mercier Eye Base Essentials and I was thinking of it not only as a primer for my shadows but also a base that would brighten up my lid area a la Benefit Lemon Aid.
Mind you, I’m a lover and firm believer in Lemon Aid but I don’t cheating on it to check out what works best and better.
Let’s explore Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Shadow Primer and see what the low down is!
Imagine a world where fall out from your shimmery, glittery shades of shadow didn’t exist. Wait, I’m closing my eyes now, I’m picturing it….um nope, can’t imagine dat!
I have so much sparkle crack for my eyes it’s surreal. I love me some shimmer. However, I do hate the fall out drama that occurs with the application of such products. Cheeks, face, no place is safe from sparkly shadow during application and it pretty much falls anywhere and any place it damn well pleases.
Too Face Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue Glitter Bonding Eye Shadow Primer promises to seal glitter on my lids and hey maybe it’ll take up sword and do battle with the fall out these shades create.
