Eye Primer Confidential


What is upppp?  I hope that everyone is doing great!  I have been so slack when it comes to blogging so I will try to post a few times this week.  I get busy and have been trying to enjoy my summer.  Happy 4th, by the way.  This has been an insane weekend for me so I am taking today to get my schedule organized and clean my filthy house--wish me luck ;)

Since as long as I have been wearing makeup, I have been on the hunt for the perfect eye primer.  After dozens of failed attempts, I found THE ONE:  NARS Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

When I finished my first tube of lightweight, colorless NARS Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base ($24), I tried a few others with no satisfaction.  I am a tough girl to please, BUT NARS base did the trick :)  

We’d been inseparable since we met last November and I was impressed from the start. Pro-Prime intensifies the color of products applied on top of it and extends wear time, too. It grips cream and powder shadows, eyeliners and brow pencils tighter than teeth on a night guard.
When I start with Pro-Prime in the morning, my eye makeup still looks fresh and crease-free at dinner, even on hot, muggy days.

I wouldn’t complain if NARS slashed a few dollars off the price, perhaps down from $24 to $18, but for what it’s worth, a little does go a long way. It took me seven months to finish my first tube.  Don't over use this product--a tiny dab will cover the lid with a thin layer.
After years of experimenting with different primer products, I’ve just never found anything better, and that includes Urban Decay’s also excellent Primer Potion line. 
Hope everyone has a FUN and safe Holiday.  GOD BLESS!
