stila prime pot waterproof eye shadow primer - taffy stila prime pot waterproof eye shadow primer - caramel

Editor's TipEditor's Tip

stila Pro Artist Sarah Lucero says for an ultra-mod look, use Prime Pot on your lips, but make sure they’re well moisturized first. Too severe? Top it off with stila's lip glaze to create a prettily muted color.

Birchbox Breakdown

No matter how skilled you are with a blending brush, eyeshadow has the tendency to go slip-sliding during the day β€” or worse yet, to become more creased than a pair of Dockers. This waterproof primer solves both of those problems and then some, and it comes in two flattering neutral shades. Bonus: you can wear it solo to get a wide-awake look.

How it Works

The formula evens out your eyelid like a concealer to give you a completely matte, smooth surface for shadow and liner. It’s designed to stick to colors to keep them in place for hours and stave off any creasing or flaking. Lighter skin tones should try Taffy, a pink-toned beige, while darker skin tones should go for Caramel, a warm tawny hue.

How to Use

Use your finger to pick up a touch of formula and blend onto the eyelid from the lashline to the brow. Since it’s waterproof, the formula is fairly dry, but it spreads easily. Follow with your usual makeup.

Isododecane, polyethylene, cyclopentasiloxane, trimethylsiloxysilicate, disteardimonium hectorite, phenyl trimethicone, hydrogenated polyisobutene, lecithin, barium sulfate, propylene carbonate, phenoxyethanol may contain [+/-] mica, titanium dioxide (ci 77891), iron oxides (ci 77491, ci 77492, ci 77499) .

good for the cost

Love this stuff. It does dry out a bit. You have to definitely warm it up before applying. Shadows stick well to it, and it's also good for concealing discoloration in eye lids.

I have tried tons of primers in my 16 years of makeup traveling and was very surprised by this product. It held my shadows on all day. This was my go to for over a year when I wanted my shadows to last 10 plus hours!

Nice prime pot!
Purchased

I bought this from Birchbox because I was looking for something that would work well on my oily eyelids. This really did the trick for me. However, once I put it on it does kind of make my eyelids look a little dry. Other than that I really love this product!

it does what it'supposed to
Purchased

I had never used primer before trying this one. If you've ever tried the eye shadow techniques that are shown on Pinterest without success (someone asked me if I had an 'owie' after a failed attempt) give this primer a try - it really helps the shadow stay where you put it. But be careful you don't use too much or it will look cakey.

I like this! Goes on easily and stays put!
Purchased

This is a great primer. I only wish the tint was slightly lighter so that it highlights my skin tone, but other than that, it's amazing. It keeps my shadow on all day. I had no problem applying it to my lids like others had mentioned.

LOVED IT!

OMG, this primer went on so smooth. It totally made my makeup last ALL DAY long. It minimized the texture on my skin and made the pores less visible. Definitely recommend it!

It does what it should
Purchased

It works pretty good, although it can be cakey at times. I really like using though, it makes me feel like my face is complete.

A dab will do ya
Purchased

I think this is a great primer, but I wish it was a little creamier. I like to put it on right after my eye cream so it spreads a little easier. A little goes a long way with this one. Your shadow will definitely stay put all day!
