so today I want to share with you how I FINALLY found the eyelid primer that suits my eyelid. We all react to different types of eyelid primer differently, so it's very important to try out several brand before purchasing them.
Here are all the ones I tried:
- Too Faced Shadow Insurance
- Kat Von D High Voltage Eye Primer
- Benefit Stay don't Stray Eyeshadow Primer
- Lorac Eyeshadow Primer
- Stila Prime Pot in Taffy
- Bare Escentuals Prime time Eye Primer
- Urban Decay Primer Potion
At first I didn't know much about eyelid primers. I just knew my eyelid was super oily and that I needed something for oil control. So after watching YouTubers and doing some research, I thought Too Faced had one that would suit me. I went to Sephora and purchased it. It did kinda work for the first few times I used it, then it just failed on me. My second attempt was by speaking to a representative at Sephora. They told me that the manager there swears by the Kat Von D High Voltage Eye Primer. When I tested it in the store, it did feel less "watery" than the Too Faced one. So I decided to give it a try. Failed after several tries.
Then I told myself, there's no way I'm going to start purchasing again. I will get samples and try them out for a whole week before buying again! The Benefit one kinda intensified the oiliness of my lid! The Lorac one was ok for the first few hours, and did start to crease and get oily after 4-5 hours.
Stila and Bare Minerals works very well on me, so I needed to assess the packaging. The Bare Escentuals new packaging of their eyelid primer is much more sanitary than the Stila, which came in a pot.
As for the Urban Decay Primer Potion, I didn't bother to test it out because I read lots of review that it didn't work on oily lids. This sample came with the Naked Palette.
So the winner is...
*Did anyone had a hard time finding an eyelid primer that works for them*
Till next time...~
