When it comes to eyeshadow primers some are cult-faves for a reason. They move from being a splurge to being a necessity in spite of price. However, we don’t all want to pay that price and lucky for us budget friendly alternatives to those cult-faves exist.
This is Black Radiance Perfecting Eye Shadow Primer and at $3.99 is worth a shot if the more expensive primers give you sticker shock.
I snagged this from my local Wal-Mart Wednesday morning and it works. It made my eyeshadow more intense. It didn’t crease. It didn’t fade. It also absorbed into my lid rather than just sit on top.
I used the Ulta eyeshadow in Galaxy to test the product. I figured if it can work with a cheaper shadow then the more expensive ones should be fine. One eye was primed while the other one wasn’t. After about four hours the eyeshadow that wasn’t primed started to fade while the other eyeshadow was still intact.
I kept it on for another hour and had to take it off because I didn’t want to pick up my children sporting unblended and fading eyeshadow. The non-primed eye wiped away easily with a make-up wipe. My primed eye took a little bit more effort so I know that eyeshadow was sticking to the primer.
Overall I’m happy with the purchase. As much I love the expensive products finding something works for a fraction of the price is still great.
