    Which is a good primer from the drugstore?

    I have different eye shadows but I don't like using them because they fall off or get messy after a few hours. Happens the same when I use black pencil.
    I am thinking I should try using a primer before applying makeup.
    Did you have good experiences with primer? I never tried it. Share your experience and if you know a good primer from the drugstore let me know.

    So much appreciating your responses.

    Eye primers are a must for your shadows to stay in place and be vibrant. For a drugstore option I recommend the Palladio Eye Primer For a high end option, I recommend Mac Paints or Paintpots or Prep and Prime Eye.
    Yeah I'm superficial, Whatever...

    I haven't had much luck with drugstore primers. My fave so far is the Lime Crime Primer; nothing gets that off!

    Here's a youtube video I found comparing some of the top primers...

    Super cheap mac clearout!!

    Try elf mineralize eye primer, it's about $3.

    I like the NYC brand primer. It's 3.99 in my area and gives your skin a Dewey glow where you almost don't need foundation.

    I like the NYX HD primer for an inexpensive version.

    I love the NYX HD eyeshadow primer - it's been my go-to for a year or so now. Wet n Wild has new eyeshadow primer too, it seems good but I just bought it a couple days ago, so I'm still testing it.

    NYX hd primer is nice, or you can also just use the NYX jumbo pencil in milk and blend that over your eye before you apply shadows.

    i honestly think it is better to just buy a higher end one, or get a sample from sephora
