The black primer is a must have for eyeshadow, I can’t believe I ever used black eyeshadow without this and for the past year it’s been fantastic. If you’re a goth you need this primer, and I barely have to use any to pack shadow on over it. Really really love it, I even used it for my halloween costume this year and after 4-5 hours of overheating and sweating my eyes were the only part of my loon that hadn’t started breaking up and looking worse yet. I also find it very easy to wash off which is a bonus to not have to scrub my eyelids so harshly
Love this product! Goes on smooth does not crease, makes my eyeshadow look amazing. Definitely recommend!
Over priced & Under performing
I bought all three shades when these initially launched, despite the price per ounce being above the general market value at the time. I have oily hooded eyelids, and so a quality eye primer is a must. I believed these three shades were designed to work with the hydra liners & their bright shadow shades. The white would make pastels pop, the black would intensify neons, and the **** shade would be a general "fit for all skin shades" primer for use with any product. This simply was not the case. Let's go down the list. White: This primer may actually be great for those of extremely pale complexions who have trouble finding products that don't leave an unfitting orange or pink tone on the skin, but for everyone else? This white shade sheers out so much that it looks like a smear of eyelash glue on the lids. It does nothing for my pastel powders or hydra liners, and doesn't give enough brightness on its own to warrant being used over the **** shade. Black: I have medium-dark skin, so while I suspect this darker tone may be helpful for deep dark skin tones who are constantly having to hunt for clear primers in a world that doesn't cater to truly dark skin? This is such a patchy product that I would not recommend it for even deep shaded skin tones. It doesn't sheer out as badly as the white, but the pigmentation is so inconsistent, so patchy and all over the place, that it loses all purpose as a tinted primer. Due to the inconsistency in how the dark shade applies, this product doesn't work for the eyes or as an all-over-the-face coverage to help get pitch dark shading for dramatic, costume, or artistically unique full-face looks. It is by far the worst of the trio. ****: There is really not much to say about this one, as it fails about as plainly as the shade appears. I typically dislike when a "one size fits all" shade is included in a product with limited shade options (like a trio of primers). When selection is tight, brands should look to near-invisible, highly transparent, clear products when possible. This particular **** shade was not a neutral medium-brown, but an orange-peach toned light-medium tan color that I can't imagine looks good on more than a very small portion of people. It sheers out similarly to the other two products, but enough pigmentation is left that, unless you are going for full coverage over every molecule of this primer? There will be that peachy, orangey, medium-light tan coloration poking out and standing out against your skin. Making it useless for those of us with medium-deep skin tones, and a nightmare for everyone who is a cool, yellow, olive, or neutral skin tone, regardless of shade. What was the purpose? Why not just make a clear primer to balance the white & black? All of Them: Every single one of these primers commits the original sin of all eye primers that have come before it; Not locking down moisture that comes from within the skin. Any time I have an eye primer like this that is absolutely useless against the natural oils of my eyelids, I tend to use it as a face primer instead. Which for the white and the black, was not an option for me. The **** shade I could only use around my lips as a mild color corrector before going over it with my foundation, as it was too orange-peach toned to be used anywhere else. What's worse? Every single one of these primers, on hooded lids, creases in a unique way that seems to collect the pigments and intensify them as they collect in those creases. It's like having window blinds on your lids! What's worse, is that these primers are not sticky or tacky primers at all; They're more oily and slippy, meaning they don't grab onto product like their advertisements show. I think the choice to use Green eyeshadow in the advertisements was intentional; Green will stand out the most against white, and it definitely is the right shade to apply over the overly orange-peach **** shade. Overall, these primers perform worse than popular, cheaper brands popular in dollar stores. Why 2 stars instead of 1? Well, the doe foot applicator is large and gathers a lot of product at once, so if for some reason you do enjoy this product? You won't be dipping it back into the tube repeatedly. Additionally, I do think that white primers are particularly hard to find for those out there who have the palest of pale skin shades, and this might actually work well for when an eye look doesn't need to last more than an hour or two.
The White Prime+Paint made the eyeshadow colors show so well, and my makeup lasted nice and perfect for more than 12 hours! No caking, or smearing, perfect!
I purchased the eye primer and then used my SUVA pigmented eyeshadows on top. I loved it so much!!! Little to no fall out. Would recommend to others and would purchase again once I'm out.
