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.

The look of love, it’s tonight, it’s tonight!
Even though I’m not technically a child of the 80’s as I had my tween and teen years in the early 90’s I still appreciate everything having doing with the era particularly the music thanks to my older sister over exposing it to me as a child. w00t! It was the second British Invasion and such an amazing era of great music.
Sorry I got off topic there but the new Too Faced Look of Love Set got me humming that little ditty this morning plus it’s Valentine’s Day so I was hoping to wear that romantic Look of Love out today!
I absolutely adored the idea behind the Mally Eye Brightening Long-Wear Shadow Base Duo when I saw her present it on QVC. The concept of the product allows for a long wearing base to be worn as a primer for shadows with a pearl finish or to be worn alone to brighten the area up plus an eye brighten which had a matte finish to be worn under your eye to brighten the eye area up. Basically Mally combined the two products in one compact and allows each product to perform two great functions.
It seemed ideal to me as I’m always looking for a great base outside of my beloved Benefit Love Aid to use as both an eyeshadow primer or just worn alone plus something to brighten my eye area. Who doesn’t want wide awake, fatigue-less eyes?
This compact sounded like the ultimate solution!
Here are my thoughts!
