It’s the great primer debate…
Hi you guys!
OK, so earlier tonight I Tweeted and asked which eyeshadow primer is the best?
I am asking this question because of a few reasons:
- A) I value your opinions,
- B) I have only really used UDPP so I don’t know the answer
- C) and I am trying to recommend the best eyeshadow primer for my sister who keeps telling me she is on the hunt for something that will really do the trick!
So, here are my thoughts on the best eyeshadow primers…
First off, I came to start using Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion when I bought the first Naked palette last year. I had never really been too big on primers, and then when I used this I was smitten and haven’t turned back.
I had only ever had the Smashbox Photofinish Lid Primer which unfortunately was a huge waste of cha-ching, and I was royally disapointed. It is so drying and seriously flakes. Like what is up with that?? Is it just me?? lol
Anyway, so like I said, UDPP it was. Then when my bff gave me Too Faced Shadow Insurance and I tried it, I noticed a big difference in that it was really quite mattifying on the skin which I L-O-V-E! Something that I don’t particularily find so much with Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion.
Now, this question also gets me thinking to MAC Paint Pots. Painterly has seriously been on my wish list forEVA… and I am determined to get this. Every time I see someone on YouTube use it I think, “must.buy.soon” but I have yet to.
Also I’ve heard wonders about NYX which I don’t own (and like anything I don’t own I want, lol) and even L’Oréal, Coastal Scents, ELF, you name it ;)
So why prime?
In a single word: LONGEVITY.
But, like anything, it’s a personal choice. For those who find their eyemakeup literally disappears after half a day, or find that their eyeshadow creases like crazy, or even the eyeliner smudges off too easily then in my opinion invest in a good primer. It will help to fix ALL these problems, and improves the look of the color of the shadow itself; brights are brighter, glitters pop, etc.
But the best eyeshadow primer? You be the judges!
