 THE VERDICT:

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.

  2. Lovely eye primer! I haven't tried this one though. :) I've given up on eye makeups in general as I have oily lids which sucks. :(

  3. Oooohhhh impressive indeed! Have you tried the eye primers from ELF and Essence? Heard a lot of awesome things about them as well, and they're such steals for the price point! :) I do have one question. Where else can you use eye primers, aside from on your eyelids? It's a pretty stupid question, but I was wondering if they could be multipurpose products as well, or if they only work on the eyes =)))) Have you tried using them for purposes other than priming your eyes? :)

  8. Oh my! That's a really good primer, considering you used neutral colors. Whenever I were those kinds of colors, they're almost none existent at the end of the day. Yours look almost the same. I can still see the different colors you used (with the lightest shade being an exception). Mine just look like I have one color on my lid and they tend to crease a lot because of my oily lids. I want to try this and see if it works as great as it did on you!
