So I recently purchased a primer after doing some research on which to try out with my skin type and needs. I took notice of Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance because of the already good reviews that people had on Sephora. I wanted something that will last me through a long night, especially during parties or special outings. The biggest factor that made me look into this product was the anti-crease promise that it was suppose to offer.
Price & size:
I bought the primer at Sephora for $18. The size of the primer tube is 0.35 oz. It’s kind of a steep price tag for someone like me that prefers bargain brands to purchase this item, but I really wanted a long lasting effective primer so I took the chance.
The tube came in a cute box with a nice design. At a glance it looks like a small tube that I would quickly demolish within weeks, but you can feel that it’s packed with the formula to the very end. The extraction point is a very small slender tip with a tiny hole at the end. The primer is more of a beige tone but blends flawlessly and easily on your lids. There’s no strong scent to the product as well which nice if you’re the type of person that gets distracted by all the different smell that goes onto your face when doing your makeup.
So like I said earlier how it felt like the tube was small, a little goes a long way though when using the primer. A little dot can give me a good coverage over my lids with a very creamy, smooth application. It blends wonderfully with my eye shadows and defines the colors very well. Though, I recently used a cream eye shadow and by the end of the night I started seeing creases on my lids. I tend to have oily lids by the end of the night so it could be the oil seeping through the primer.
I’d say yes, if you’re looking for a good eye shadow primer. It’s a bit on the expensive side, but this tube will last you quite a good amount of time.
It’s works wonders with powder eye shadow, giving a highly pigmented color to them.
With cream eye shadow, I still have to experiment on them to see if I can fully eliminate the crease that shows up after half the day is gone.
But for now, I’m happy with this purchase :]
