Review: Too Faced Eyeshadow Insurance

Product Info from Too Faced:
Your full-coverage insurance policy against eye shadow fading, creasing, and melting. Our silicone-based eyeshadow primer transforms any eye shadow into a perfectly blendable, color-drenched, intensified version of itself, then locks it down perfectly until you take it off. Our skin soothing formula evens out the skin tone on your lids and smoothes out lines while it secures a barrier between the oils of your skin and your makeup, so no shadow catastrophes will ever happen again.

RETAIL PRICE: $18.00

WEIGHT: 11 grams

PROS:
* hygenic squeeze tube packaging
* contains Vit. E & Tocopherol (anti-aging moisturisers)
* a little goes a long way - you only need a tiny amount for the entire lid

* turns clear when it dries

* makes eyeshadow colors look more vibrant
* helps my eyeliner stay in place

* my lids doesn't look flakey/dry unlike UDPP.

* my eyeshadow did not fade/melt during the day

CONS:
* not available locally.
* I noticed a slight creasing on the inner corners of my eyes (see pic below)


ADDICTION FACTOR:
I swapped my Urban Decay Primer Potion with this eye primer and I'm not disappointed (thanks sis Heatherette)! I love how it dries easily and makes eyeshadow application a breeze since the colors glide smoothly. I like the texture too which is thinner compared to UDPP... no more flakey/dry looking lids!

RATING : 4.5/5

See the difference with and without eye primer?

My eye makeup after 12 hrs (my usual work look)
my eyeshadow creased a bit, but not bad eh?!
sorry for the ungroomed brows =P

Lucky for you, you found something that works for you!

The Too Faced eyeshadow insurance was the first eye primer I got myself. It did work at first, but after several other times, it just started to crease!! Then I went in Sephora again, and they recommended me the Kat Von D High Voltage eye primer. This one also worked for a few time, then failed me once again. Then they put in those sample container the Benefit Stay Don't Stray and the Lorac Behind the Scenes eye primer. Tried the Benefit, didn't work and I'm going to try the Lorac... SIGH Hope something will work for me!
