Today I am reviewing a fabulous eye primer by Coastal Scents. I have been using this for a couple of months now and here’s my review on the product!
Price : $14.75, currently available for $9.95 at coastalscents.com.
Product Claims : First 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!
