Editor's Tip Editor's Tip

Is the primer’s shade not exactly your color? Mix it with a bit of your foundation (try a ratio of 80% primer and 20% foundation) to create the ideal canvas for your lids.

Birchbox Breakdown

In the grand scheme of things, dealing with melting eye makeup is no worse than coping with a paper cut. That said, minor annoyances can be major distractions. This beige-tinted universal primer acts like a bandage by covering up fine lines and discoloration on and around your lids. At the same time, it works to prevent shadow from creasing and fading. So, while we can’t tell you how to avoid paper cuts (if you figure it out, let us know), this minor annoyance can quickly become a thing of the past.

How to Use

Dab a tiny amount onto your lids with the wand, and gently blend with your fingertips. Follow with shadow or wear it alone for a nude eye look. You can also put a bit beneath your eyes to brighten dark circles.

It's ok...

This one always seems to dry out too fast on me... Probably halfway through use. It's ok at first. Would be so much better if they took Urban Decay's lead and switches from a bottle with a want to a squeeze tube.

Use everyday

works like it should and the eye shadow stays put. I will so though that I end up using my pinky finger to ensure proper coverage as the little brush is not best for applying evenly.

Primer
Purchased

I absolutely love this primer I won't go back to the cheap stuff I was using before, it gave me the picture perfect finish that I've been looking for forever!! I recommend this to anyone who might be looking for something to give them a more professional, sophisticated look. I am so glad I had found this and gave it a try...

Great primer
Purchased

Good size to stick in a purse and to travel with. It helps hold eyeshadow longer throughout the day. First time I have used eye primer specifically. I have tried a full face primer but this one seems great.

Plumper and primer

I only see a small difference as a plumper when I leave it on for a while before I put lipstick on. It also burns/tingles a little. It's a nice primer but really only if I let it sit on my lips before I put lipstick on.
