I have been using ELF’s Eyelid Primer for ages and have always been quite happy with it. It keeps my eyeshadow in place and for a £1.50, you can’t really go wrong. But in my last MUA order, I decided to give their new eyelid primer a go, a pound more expensive at £2.50.
There wasn’t any real difference in how the pigmentation showed up for the eyeshadow. But here’s how my makeup looked after a full day of wear. *Sidenote: My eye makeup usually holds up much better than this in general, but I did take a bath(while doing my best to keep my face dry and makeup intact) in the evening which I normally wouldn’t do wearing eye makeup anyway, but for the experiment’s sake I left it on so I could go a full day.
Here’s the MUA eye, as you can see there is a fair amount of eyeshadow that has gone from the lid (again, under extreme bathing circumstances, normally, my eyeshadow would last all day with this primer).
And the verdict? Both of these eyelid primers are excellent for everyday wear, but for extremely hot weather/rain/beach, I would say that ELF works best.
Have you tried either of these primers? Do you wear a full face of makeup while bathing(:P)?
