Milani Eyeshadow Primer-You Gotta Try This!

Milani Eyeshadow Primer, $6.49

Press Sample

I’m a big fan of this eye primer. I mentioned it in my Products That Help My Makeup Last All Day Youtube video last week. This is without a doubt my favorite drugstore eye primer.

It goes on smoothly and leaves very little color behind on my lids. The official wear time on the package is over 8 hrs but I can tell you personally if I put on my shadows at 7am with this primer-my lids are fine and my shadow looks freshly applied at 11pm. I don’t have oily lids but I imagine this primer will be great at helping your shadows stay put as well or better than higher end $20 primers out there.
















I use a tiny amount so it’s important to note that you don’t have to lather your lids with primer for this to work! A very slight color is left behind. Nothing serious though. I expect this tube to last a long time. And it goes without saying that the price cant be beat!

    Have you tried Benefit’s “Stay don’t stray?” eye primer? If so, is this one just as good? :) I’d love to step down from the hefty Benefit price, despite not needing much it’s still expensive and this Milani one sounds amazing!

      I used a sample of Stay Don’t Stray and it didn’t work well for me. That was years ago but it’s not something I have used the full size of. I’ve used Urban Decay Primer Potion, Too Faced Shadow Insurance, Lorac Behind the Scenes, Tarte Clean Slate, and Wet n Wild. I think this is right up there with Lorac and Tarte Clean Slate for me and they are around $20.

        Thank you for the info! If you find that it keeps up with all the well-known high end primers, I will definitely pick this up then when I am in the states in a few months :) I appreciate your help.

    Mmm… thanks for the review. I’ll definitely give it a chance, if it compares to Tarte Clean Slate must be good.

    I live in Northern California and have been to a couple CVS & Target and one Rite Aid and still can’t find this! They don’t carry it at all!! I’m not giving up bc I really want to try it. I normally use the U’D Potion and almost out! Didn’t want to buy a new one w/o trying this brand first hoping I can convert. But bummer I ant find any store that carries it. I haven’t tried Ulta. Do they carry this brand do you know?
    By the way you are awesome! Love your videos!!! I just came across them last week and have found myself sitting and watching handful of videos at a time!! Can’t stop lol keep up the great work!!!

      Thank you so much for watching the videos! I never see any Milani products at Ulta. I wish they carried the brand. Another good place for Milani around me is Kmart. They were the first to have all the new lipsticks and all there other new stuff. Hope it comes to your area soon!
