    ITA, that's what I use. If it *ever* gets released, MAC is coming out with an eyeshadow primer as part of Prep & Prime.

    MAC Paints are good, and clinique has bases that are pretty good too....

    Urban Decay Primer Potion is the best I've tried.

    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!!

    I agree with pnkcosmo UD Primer Potion rocks

    I also use shadesticks, depending on the color Im gonna use, or paints, or UD cream eye shadows..Or Lancome colour doses...

    Gotta say I use my beloved shade sticks the most though. They're so damn pretty

    I use some light foundation, then concealer where needed and a light dusting of cornstarch powder, and my shadows stay put better than any primer i've tried so far... ( i haven't tried many)

    Prep and Prime is out here in England, unless they have it at the counter to test but not to buy.

    I have to agree about the UD Primer Potion. It makes eyeshadows wear like iron. Great stuff!

    I like UD's primer as well. But I also sometimes use mac paints or shadesticks instead. Liquid concealer can be a good shadow base, too.

    On the UD primer potion if you will pull out the little plastic piece at the top of the tube you will be surprised how much more product there is in there.

    I'm trying Ultima II fade not crease not eye primer. You can find that at ulta.com and maybe some other online sites.

    UD PP is good for a lot of other people. I want to try it out, but someone said it made their eye shadows look chalky and weird.

    You can also get more out of the tube if you try prying it out of that little purple container. It's a container within a container, but some said it was hard to get out. There's a little lip on it as if you were depotting.

    I'm currently using UD PP also, and it works great, BUT I just got my hands on Untitled, so I'll be using that for a while to see which works the best!

    Is it just me or is this out in the UK? I would've thought that US people would get it first. They're not great as primers apprantly, more to do with evening out eyelid tone.

    Girlactik pearl base is awesome. MAC cream color bases are good too. Try to use a cream (like these two products) and pat shadow over it---it will be intense and last a long time!!!

    Urban Decay Primer Potion is my fave. I also like Paula Dorf eye primer.
    Best advice I ever got: "Fake it and move on."

    I use Mary Kay's signature primer. As much as I truly despise MK, I really do love this stuff because it dries clear and doesn't alter the color of my shadows.

    I did a side-by-side with PP on one eye and Lumene on the other, and the lasting power was virtually identical. However, I haven't subjected Lumene to the swim test. One day I went swimming with PP on both eyes as well as WP mascara, finished swimming and went home, and shadow and mascara were still intact! If Lumene holds up that well, it will be my new HG eye primer :-)
    Thanks,

    Can anyone rec. a good e/s base/primer?

    Hi,

    I need to buy a really good e/s base/ primer to stop e/s sliding off. Has anyone actually tried one out yet? I hear about them everywear, but i'm not sure if they actually work.
    Also, in the mean time, what can anyone reccommend i do before applying e/s: i.e. using foundation/concealer/powder?

    (i say this, because i read that you should apply foundation and powder to the eye area before you apply e/s?)
    Would that work? Because i would imagine if using a liquid foundation or similar, it'd need to dry before you could apply e/s, otherwise it'd just smudge and mix with the foundation, right?

    mac paints work great as a base. however, i have switched over to urban decay primer potion. i find it works just as well as paints if not better. i still like paints for making a similar color more vibrant, but for general use i'd most definitely reccomend the urban decay primer.

    Urban decays PP works wonders...so do mac paints, shadesticks and for a few even ccbs (cream colour bases) even work. The ccbs tend to crease on oily eyelids though.

    Smashbox also makes a decent eye primer. But Id go with UD or mac paints or s/s.

    HTH!
