Favorite Eye shadow Primer - Page 30

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

I absolutely love the eye shadow primer from Artdeco. It's a German drugstore brand. I have also used the Urban Decay primer, but I think it's terrible. The artdeco one comes in a small jar which isn't practical and hygienic, but it surely does the trick!

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

I used UD primer for aaaaaaages and thought it was great, til I tried the Too Faced one - it's BRILLIANT. 16 hours after putting my e/s on it still looks good! Miraculous considering I usually get creasing/sliding off even with primer.

Shadesticks are good, MAC Paints are great, the darker the paint the more vivid the color payoff you will get. For serious stage base, Kryolan aqua colors are fabulous and LAST. I also use, Benefit Boi ing concealer for a base, is amazing and give a great coverage to your eye.

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

I would say Too Faced Shadow Insurance, but in all honesty I have tried that many. It works so well I don't want to experiment!

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

UDPP of course or Bare Essentuals Prime Time Eyelid primer works great too.

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

I used to swear by UDPP, but I just got a small jar of Laura Geller Eye Spackle and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! It covers any veins, neutralizes redness, and all my e/s colors (even cheap stuff) look so vibrant & never crease!

UDPP also prevents creasing & enhances color, but the Eye Spackle makes my eye shadow have a staying power that UDPP can't come close to!

Get a sample & try this stuff, b/c it changed my life!

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

I've only ever used Urban Decay Primer Potion, but I love it and it works great! I was actually surprised the first time I used it because I wasn't expecting it to work so well.

Unfortunately, it doesn't come with very much in that tube. So, I use UD's Cream e/s instead. I use Foxy & Midnight Cowboy the most. I apply a thin layer to the lid and apply any e/s over that.

Lasts all day long w/o creasing or fading!!
when my tube runs out i cut it open and get a TON of product out! i can fill usualyy 3 five grams jars with all thats left in there

I once did this with a new UDPP to save hassle with the applicator etc, I prefer jars. But it dried out in like a week. I do not recommend this until its on its last legs.

Maybe that's painstakingly obvious for most though.

A lot of people have said theirs dried out which is odd as I depotted mine when I had tonnes left in it (ie it wasn't on its last legs) and it hasn't dried out on me at all. I put it into an old face cream jar and it's stayed the same for me, it dried out a tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiny bit but I didn't notice until I was being really fussy with it.

I quite like Painterly as a base, it acts as an excellent "eyeshadow brightener"

UDPP!!! I just wish it came in better packaging

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

I use Too Faced Eye Shadow Insurance! Not only does it prevent creasing, but it makes my shadows last ALL DAY! A few nights I feel asleep in my makeup (I know, I know, big no-no!) and the next morning, woke up and my EOTD was still perfect!

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

My UDPP has started doing something very very strange to my eyemakeup... I'm not sure wtf I'm doing ;/ I use quite a lot of Fluidliner in my eyemakeup, and after about an hour of wear it just... cracks off o_o;;; any help??

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

Truthfully, I don't usually use a primer but I really need to start. I hate it when eyeshadow gets under my eyes. One of my friends SWEARS by Urban Decay primer though, and she's an expert Hope this helps!

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

Too Faced.

I got a sample of UDPP but I'm almost scared to use it because Too Faced is sooo awesome.

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

Hi!

I discovered the Mac paint pots, and I love them as a primer
(I'm a new be with the Mac products)
they are great!

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

Too faced, used to use UDPP but it dies out incredibly quickly, that plus the packagin = not worth it at all IMO.

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

I would not recommend UDPP to anyone who has ever had any sort of sensitivity to makeup. I had a terrible allergic reaction to UDPP and I do not have very sensitive skin. Something in the UDPP made my eyes swell up so much that I could barely open my eyes for several days. My doctor actually had to prescribe me steroids to reduce the swelling! I could not wear any makeup near my eyes for over a week.

I do, however, use and love Mac's CCBs for shadow primer. I personally use Pearl. Nights that I have fallen asleep without taking my eye makeup off, I have woken up the next morning to near perfect eye makeup.

Yeah it dried on mine
Right now, I am using Elizabeth Arden Eye Primer and MAC Prep+Prime.
I still haven't seen a good e/s primer as good as UDPP.

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

I have to use TFSI and EL double wear shadow creme (something like paintpots) because everything creases on me really easily But EL is awesome. I have 2 shades and want more. They are the best.

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

Urban Decay Primer Potion.

I've got oily lids, and this keeps my shadows and liner from creasing, fading or smudging througout the day.

I just really really wish that they changed the packaging.

But here's a trick before you cut it open:
When you feel like you're running out, use a pair of scissors or tweezers, and tweeze off that top clear-ish plastic rim. Sure, that's the thing that squeezes all the excess primer off the wand when you pull it out, but once you get rid of that thing, you get access to much more of the product so that when you open it up, there isn't as much and it won't dry out as fast!
