Best and Worst Eyeshadow Primers


Have you ever hear of eyeshadow primers? Girl you said No? Well let me introduce you to the wonders of an amazing product that keep your eyeshadow in place and enhance the intensity of the colors as well. Whether your use a little bit of eye makeup or are the diva queen, I say this product is a must!

They come in different formulas, some very good some not so much!

In this post I want to show you the best and worst eyeshadow primers that I have used, from high end to drugstore. Swatches are below the review. What's your favorite eyeshadow primer? 


+ Comes in a gel form with a light beige tone. Evens out your lid and helps brighten your shadows . This is the one I used on my makeup kit for clients because of it's long lasting results, the shadows do not move,crease or loose life! And because it dries and stay so well, is great for oily lids.

Price: $20.00

+  The texture is more liquidy than a gel, but it will still cover your lid and hide imperfections.  Works great to hold your shadows all day, but won't help made them brighter because he goes on sheer. This primer will be great on all skin types, but sets really well and I will also recommended for oily lids. 

Price: $20.00

  • Rimmel Exaggerate undercover shadow primer 
This primer is really sheer, does not cover well or evens out your lid. It's a little shinny and do not set or help your shadows stay. 
I would not recommend it for anyone. There is better drugstore options. See bellow (wink...wink) 

Price around $5.00 Not worth it! 
+ This Milani primer has a gel texture, very similar to the Urban Decay and Too Faced primers. It can be a bit more sheer, but it's functionality is equally as good! I had used it on works days over 8 hours and the shadows hold up and do not move, they might not look as fresh after a long time but it does hold them in place. 
This is my recommendation as the best Drugstore option! 

Price: $ 6.99 
  • MAC Soft Ochre Paintpot 
+ Popularly sold as a primer, this is basically a cream eyeshadow with primer properties. Paintpots are longwearing and their texture is creamy. They come in a variety of colors but Soft Ochre is a light beige tone that works in light to medium skin tones. I like to used this paintpot over a primer to intensify the shadow colors. But I have used it by itself and it works well, but can move if I'm out in the heat. If you have very dry skin, this product will work great alone on your lid. 

Price: $21.00 

Take a look at the swatches below.

✐ As a mother to be and an avid organic/natural supporter, it's always great to find companies that do not use hazardous chemicals in their products.

Taking care of your Cream - Gel Eyeliners

Dry Eyeliners English: Hello! This past week I spent my time cleaning, organizing and remodeling my home office/studio. During this time, I found all of these cream and gel eyeliners that were completely dried up, even some that I had never used. In my ongoing search to find the perfect gel eyeliner, these little guys died during their quest to fulfill my eyeliner needs. Poor guys. As a result, here are some things I learned when it comes to eyeliners: Don't buy more than one product of the same color Immediately close the gel eyeliner after using it Keep your eyeliners close to your daily makeup area for quick easy access Don't buy colors that you are not use to using. You can always use a color pencil or eye shadows as a substitute  Spanish: Hola les cuento que esta semana estuve limpiando, organizando y remodelando mi oficina/estudio. Mientras limpiaba encontré  todos estos delineadores en gel completamente secos, incluyendo algunos que nunca había usad
