Eyelid Primers. Which ones do you use?

I don't know how many of you ladies use Eyelid Primers, but it's a MUST for me. If you don't use them I promise you, you will see a difference when it comes to your eye make-up. Your eyeshadows will last longer, look better and stop creasing. Yes, these little tubes of magic goodness actually make your make-up look better! So why wouldn't you want to try them, right?!

If your a make-up diva and know every trick and product in the book I want to know which ones you use? Let me know if you've found one that's superior than all the rest!

Here's some that I've tried and tested...
Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer-$20 I have dry/combination skin so I found that this a good match for me. I have a friend that has oily lids and this product doesn't work as well on her, also as you can see it's a little pricey. It works fine but it's not the best.
Urban Decay Primer Potion-$18 This is my all time FAVORITE eye primer! This baby will make your eyeshadows last a week and it even makes your eyeshadows more vibrant and pop. It's creamy and applies smoothly--love this stuff!
Too Faced Shadow Insurance-$17 This is a grrreat product as well! It's silky and goes on invisible and if you have a problem with your eye shadows creasing--this puppy will solve that.

I know that there's a lot of barganistas out there (including myself) so there are some more affordable eyelid primers.

Loreal De-Crease-$8 I have found that this primer is a little drier than some I think that if you have oily lids this product will work better for you.
Ulta Eye Base-$6.50 This product works ok. It doesn't last as long as some but I had no major issues with it.
Mark Please Hold Eye Primer-$8 I just recently found out that mark released this eye primer. I have yet to try it but if you're looking for an inexpensive primer you might want to try it. Be sure to come back and let me know what you think!


  1. I use mac and still not satisfied. I heard it was amazing, but I have really oily lids too. Oily face in general. Sounds like the 2 faced shadow ins. might be my best bet. Thanks!

  2. I haven't tried MAC yet and based on what you're telling me, I'll probably stay away..

  3. Ok, so I'm not a makeup artist but I did work for one briefly in college. She worked with Nikki Taylor and the like. Anyway, she said the best primer to use for eyes and lips and undereyes was a shade lighter matte foundation. Dab with a concealer brush. Add japanese finishing powder (the white stuff) and then apply. She never used primer.

    But what do I know. I have two kids and no time to shower.

  4. hahahaha. That's hilarious Crystal!

    Good to know about the lighter foundation and japanese powder. ;)


Thanks for leaving me a comment! I always make time to read each and every one. ♥
