I am annoyed at myself for only just discovering the power of eye-shadow and lip primers. It seems for years I have been going around not knowing how much better my make-up would look with some added primer.
In September when I was in America and I hit up the holy grail of Sephora and the Too Faced Eye-Shadow and Lip Primers were on my shopping list due to recommendations and pure curiosity so they quickly made it into my basket, and my life.
I have been using the eye-shadow one every single time I wear shadow and I have to say it has worked incredibly. No longer do I get faded shadow which moves in my eye crease by the end of a working day (hooray!) The primer takes a minute to dry, and it thankfully dries without colour before I blend on my eye-shadow. I have found my eye-shadows are more pigmented in colour, they blend on a lot easier and stay on for a lot longer. I seriously don’t think I could live without this product now.
The lip primer is also great, I’ve found my lipsticks doesn’t bleed as much and the colour applies much smoother. I have noticed they last a bit longer but i’ve still to find anything which will hold the colour for long periods of time (Recommendations are welcome!) Despite this I still use it regularly just because my initial colour does sit a lot better with it.
