OTHER LOCATIONS: Available in all MAC boutiques and counters locally
My biggest wish is for my eye shadow to stay as vibrant as the moment I put it on just because I dislike retouching. With this kind of weather in Manila, it's really hard to keep the look and colors of my eye makeup look intact; my oily lids are not helping at all!
I've found a solution to improving the wear time of my eye makeup look and at the same time, keeping its colors 80% true at day's end and it's MAC Prep + Prime 24 Hour Extend Eye Base. This is now one of my favorite eye shadow primers!
MAC PREP + PRIME 24 HOUR EXTEND EYE BASE IN DETAIL
This Vitamin E- enriched eye shadow primer promises to keep eye shadow vibrant, true, and fade- proof for up to 24 hours.
The primer's texture and feel is very similar to Smashbox 24 Hour Photofinish Shadow Primer, but only more spreadable. It's a semi- hard cream that melts upon skin contact and feels a bit silicone-y to touch. It has a baby pink hue that gives a slight correcting effect to any mild discoloration on the lids.
MAC PREP + PRIME 24 HOUR EXTEND EYE BASE IN ACTION
The primer sets into a powdery finish with just the right amount of stickiness to keep eye shadows in place. I can blend any eye shadow formula on top of it easily. Texture is comparable to Urban Decay's famous Primer Potion, but this has more product in the tube.
After 11 hours of wear
Whoa there! Colors are pretty much intact, especially the crease color which is the first one to go on me! The highlighter color on my lower lid, however, has faded already, albeit gradually; I'd like to note also that I have this habit of scratching my lower lids when my lash roots get a little bit itchy so that contributes to the fading of the eye shadow on that part too.
Overall, I am pretty impressed with this primer; 11 hours of keeping my eye makeup decent and 80% true to color. Really keeping this one in the list and I'd recommend it to anyone with oily lids, eye shadow lovers, or those who want an all- nighter eye shadow primer.
