Product ClaimsFirst things first! Step One—a perfect primer for your eye makeup application. Begin with a flawless canvas, on which to create lasting eye shadow color with crease-free, fade-free and smudge-proof longevity. Create a base on your eyelid before applying eye shadows–and prepare for some serious eye makeup wow-factor!

 

 

 

My take on the Product

 

The eye primer comes in a translucent yellow tube packaging with a nozzle to dispense the product. Make sure to shake the tube a little before squeezing out the primer otherwise you might get a very thin oily liquid from the tube. The primer has a creamy consistency and has a flesh tone but once blended, it dries down translucent and hence barely adds any color of its own to the skin. It can feel a little wet if you apply too much so I would recommend applying a tiny dot of the product, blending it well and letting it dry fully before applying eye shadow over it.

This might just be the best eye primer I have used! It does everything you would want from a primer – makes eye shadow appear more rich and vibrant (even those that swatch weak and patchy without a primer), prevents creasing of eye shadows (common problem with oily lids!) and makes the eye shadows last realllly long! My eye shadow lasts over 12 hours when I use this underneath which is much longer than what I get from most eye shadows without a primer. This is truly a fabulous primer and I highly recommend this! Because you need such a tiny amount, this is going to last really long. The product is currently on sale and I am definitely picking up a backup!

Only drawback : Need to order online and pay International Shipping charges!

Rating :  4.9/5

  2. Whoa…This primer actually sounds great! Would love to pick it but giving it a thought due to shipping and custom charges… Do you think its better than the Urban decay primer?

  3. Hi Ankita,

    4.9 is a pretty big number !! I haven’t seen you rating products 4.9/5.. So this must be something that I should try.. Thank you for the review !!

    1. Hi Ruchi, some of them can. Eye primers mostly form a film over the skin that would extend the wear of the eye shadow. Most of these are mattifying and might be drying on the face. Face Primers are of different kinds – some mattify (those can double up as eye primer), some moisturize and smoothen the skin (minimize pores and lines) – those cannot be used as eye primers I think.
