Best And Worst High-End Eyeshadow Primers!

Same pictures, just one with names of primers!
 ^^^ as you can see i used the same color eyeshadow (cop a teal, by too faced) for all the primers, and you can tell that each blue looks different. thats because the quality of the primers! 
This is after i tried to wash them off my arm, i was surprised to see that these certain ones wouldn't come off! so good primers, because the stuck that eyeshadow to my arm haha
from right to left: Urban decay, Nars, Too faced shadow insurance, lorac, and then mac

1) Benefit "Stay Don't Stray"

< product

< blended out 
This primer comes in a tube that has a doe foot applicator. Which is good to get the right amount of product on to the lids. I already went through a full sized one, and this one in the pictures is just a sample size i got in a set. 
But the reason why i love this is because it has a skin color to it. So if you have veins in your lids and darker colors on your lids, this will help to make it all one color and give you a clean base to apply eyeshadows. Also, this is a very thin formula that you don't ned much! i love this stuff! And another plus to this primer, is that you can use it under your eyes! as a primer for your concealer! so the concealer wont settle into the lines! 
this product is an overall amazing product, because of its multi-use and the quality is amazing!

This also comes in light and medium!

2) Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

This primer does not come in this contanier anymore because more then half the product would get stuck in the curves of the tube! so that have chaged it to this....

But this eye primer is good, but the only thing i don't like about it is that is doesn't give me a color. I like to have a primer that has color to cover the veins in my eyelids and i think it just makes my eyeshadow look better. But if you don't have veins or discoloration in your lids, then this will be good for you! because it does do a good job in keeping your eyeshadow in place! 

3) Nars Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

 < product

< blended out
This primer i got in my Sephora 500 point perk gift. But I'm glad i choose this set with this in it! because it works amazing! it does live up to its name as smudge proof! because when i went to wash this off this stuck on to my arm! it does hold on to the eyeshadows you apply on to it, and its not too thick or too thin! even thought this doesn't give me a color, this is one clear primer i love!

4) Too Faced Shadow Insurance

< product 

<blended out 
This primer i didn't like so much, i think it was just too thin, and it didn't have a color. i felt like it was very slippery, like almost to much silicone in the product. But it does hold your eyeshadow and work well for that. But for me its just more then holding my eyeshadow, i need to have the right texture and this was just too thin!
BUT a lot of people do love this primer, so give it a try, i know they have smaller travel sizes. i just didn't like it personally!

5) Lorac Behind the Scene Eye Primer

 < product

< blended out

This primer i LOVE, it so thick when you apply it! i love that about this product. It does have a little color so it will create a sheer base for your lids. Its so thick, which mkes me think it will hold eyeshadows better (idk if thats true, thats just what i think in my head haha) but with this primer you dont have to use alot, so this will last a long time! so thats always a plus!

6) MAC Paint Pot in "soft ochre"

 < Product

<blended out

the reason why i love this so much is because its a pure color primer, it covers everything and gives my eyelids a smooth flawless look! which makes me more focused on my crease and out corner. This is so amazing, and literally keeps my eyeshadows on all day, and just as bright as the eyeshadows were when i put them on in the morning! Soft Ochre is for more of the people how have a yellow based skin tone, whereas Painterly Is a paint pot and is more of a pink skin tone color! so you choose which one is best for you1 but i know a lot of people that swear by this, so thats why i had to try it! and i freakin love this stuff! i choose this everyday over the rest of the primers!

this is one of my MUST HAVES!

Painterly: click here!

7) Too Faced Shadow Insurance in "candle light"

 < product

<blended out

This primer is very different then the rest because its a gold primer. This primer is made to make your eyeshadows more pigmented and more glittery! so when i do a crazy glittery eye or want the glitter to stand out more i use this product! it really does make any eyeshadow more BAMMM! so thats why i love this. but i wouldn't wear this everyday because i don't do glitter eyeshadow everday. But if you do then this is perfect! because it does make shimmery eyeshadows more pigmented!
