Eyeshadow Primers are an indispensable part of a makeup enthusiast's life and I'm no exception. I love trying out different bases for doing eye makeup looks and during an online discount sale at Makeup Academy, sometime last year, I ordered for this eye makeup base after reading many positive reviews on it.
The Makeup Academy Pro-Base Eye Primer comes in a silver tube with a screw top white colored lid that has a regular doe foot applicator. I simple love the packaging because it is sleek, very user friendly and hygienic. I hate to dip my fingers in eye makeup pots especially, and the doe foot applicator allows me to apply the primer not only over the lids, but also with great precision along the lower lashline.
The primer is nude skin in color and once blended, it not only provides a nice base but also provides a little coverage for dark lids like mine. The texture is smooth and cream-gel like and dries to a powder matte finish. It instantly makes the eye area look for refined and prepped up for the next step of eye makeup.
The eye primer blends easily and dries fast so you have to be quick in blending it out.
I have had the most incredible experience of using this primer. It holds my eye makeup all day long, without the slightest hint of creasing or fading. It also intensifies the look of eyeshadows and makes them look more vibrant and rich.
Overall, I'm really pleased to have tried this eyeshadow primer from Make Up Academy. At a price tag of approximately Rs 250 (without shipping charges!), this primer competes with my primer potions from Urban Decay. It hold my eye makeup firmly , without allowing them to budge a bit and blends nicely, also acts as a sheer cover concealer for pigmented lids. I absolutely have nothing to complain about it and I think I might want to but another one when this finishes off (or when makeup Academy offers free shipping!!)
