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!
I’ve been waiting to check out the Tarina Tarantino Dollskin Eye Primer since its release. I’m pretty sure it was the name that captured my interest at first glance, Doll Skin? For some reason it conjures up images of perfectly porcelain faced dolls with flawless skin.
Let’s have a look!
Stila has two brand new primers available for Spring 2011 called Prime Pot. Taking a quick glance at ‘em you’ll instantly think, “oh Stila Smudge Pots!” That’s at least the first thing that entered my head when I seen ‘em!
These come in two shades so you have a choice for lighter or darker depending on your skin type since they aren’t only working as a primer but also as a lid concealer of sorts a la Benefit Lemon Aid. I’m personally a die harder when it comes to Lemon Aid however I like to dabble around with various products to see what works better.
Let’s have a peek at Stila Prime Pots and see what the good word is!
Too Faced takes a note from Urban Decay and releases a golden shade of their popular Shadow Insurance Primer. Too Faced Candelight Shadow Insurance has a soft focused golden finish with a subtle metallic sheen whether worn as a base for color or alone.

Primers come and go out of my life but Urban Decay Primer Potion remains my main man. Nothing like it. It locks eyeshadow on for extreme wear ALL damn day! Loves!
But of course, as any good blogger and makeup junkie, I dabble with other primers but I always come back to my beloved UDPP.
My latest venture in eye primer land is the NYX HD Eye Shadow Primer. Brand new to NYX this is a high performance primer that evens out skin tone, smooths out lines, preps, primes, holds shadows in place, and walks the dog…I lied about the last part.
Does it work?
