Is it Necessary?I’ve always been a non-believer in primers – face primer, eye primer, lash primer – I thought they were just products cosmetic companies come up with to widen their range and boost total sales. Cough cough, BB creams, CC creams, ZZ creams. Plus, they’re additional steps to any makeup routine, which for someone as lazy as me, I’d much rather skip especially when I’m in a hurry. And yes – for someone who loves makeup, I’m not really one who takes quite a long time applying it. However, during the past few months, I’ve allocated time to put on eye makeup as often as I could. Okay fine, mostly I skipped on the primer. But there were times (especially when I’ll be out for a long time than usual) that I wanted to experiment and see what the difference is with one on. Surprise, surprise, guess what I learned?
Essential or Dispensable?In my personal experience, I didn’t see any major difference when I had primer on or not in terms of longevity. Also, I only realized now that I rarely, almost never see any creasing on my lids no matter what eyeshadow I use. So I always wondered what creasing actually looks like that I even googled it – confirming my initial thoughts that I don’t think any shadow creases on me significantly. I may just be one of those lucky ones who have impenetrable lids or maybe my eyeshadow journey isn’t extensive enough to have encountered the dreaded creasing phenomenon. HOWEVER! I discovered that eye primers are essential and indispensable to those who have oily and/or hooded eyelids that can fade whatever is put on top of them in a blink of an eye (literally!). As well as for eyeshadows that lack pigmentation or are hard to work with (dry, powdery, etc.) because they certainly become more vibrant and more workable when melded with silicone or whatever smoothing ingredient the primer has. I’ve encountered a few non-stellar palettes and eyeshadows that recently made me rethink my initial thoughts on them when I used a primer below. Just look at this one purple shade from a drugstore brand palette:
Primers Need Not Be ExpensiveI don’t think that you need expensive primers, hale no. Not that I’ve tried any luxury eye primers, though. Heck, prior to using legit primers, I just used my concealer and it worked for me then. I think the eyeshadow just needs something to cling on to. Also, I thought the Urban Decay Primer Potion was the queen primer of primers, till I compared it to two other primers namely the NYX High Definition Eyeshadow Base and Lorac Behind the Scenes Primer and among the three, it performed the least-spectacular. I also have the NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk which I use as a primer too and I find it works best with the almost non-pigmented shadows. I also use MAC Paint Pot in Painterly especially for when I want a really clean skintone-colored lid base. In ending, can you just take one more look and compare how the unprimed shadow looks on top of the Lorac Primer? All four were swatched once to really show the difference. If that does not convince you to wear primer more often, I don’t know what will. How about longer-lasting, non-fading eye makeup throughout the whole day despite the heat and humidity?
What are your thoughts on eye primer? Or any other primer for that matter? Lash primer, face primer, etc.
