The first and most important thing you need to know about this eye shadow base is that it dries fast…SUPER FAST. I learned that the hard way the first time I tested this eye primer out. Anyway once I got over that I found out that this primer does leave behind a little color behind on my deep skin tone. If your skin tone is much lighter this might help with covering up redness or discoloration on your lids. For me it wasn’t a benefit but it didn’t get in the way of my shadow application either. I put some pictures of my skin after the primer was rubbed in above so you can see that it isn’t a big issue. But if you’re looking for something that leaves no color behind and you are my skin tone or deeper this is something that you should know about this primer.
I usually go in with a cream eye shadow after primer so the color left behind didn’t make a difference to me at all. That being said I got some good use out of this eye shadow base from Michael Todd. I had no creasing issues at all and that’s the most important thing about a primer. I don’t have super oily lids so most primers work for me.
I don’t think I’d repurchase because I prefer my slower drying Lorac Eye Primer or UDPP but I think it’s a really good primer. This retails for $19 but I was lucky enough to get this on sale for $9. I think it’s a good purchase at that price. If you can get a deal on this try it out!
