I am a little bit late on getting this super hyped product, but better late than never, right? I have no idea how I managed to pass it by for so long, but I guess a part of me wanted to find an affordable alternative just to prove that expensive doesn't always mean better. I've stuck to the e.l.f. Mineral Eyeshadow Primer for two years now, but unfortunately the crease line was right there in the end of the day. I'm always so curious how some women can wear shadows without primer and I only wish I could be one of them! Even though my eye lids can be dry from time to time, when it comes to shadows, a primer is needed and it was about time I upgraded the game. Who doesn't already know the one and only Mac Pro Longwear Paint Pot? I've got it in the shade Soft Ochre, because it suited my medium skin tone better. I must say that with the first use, I was disappointed in a way, because the crease line made an appearance. But I was so determined to make those 20 euros to work, that I found the best way to set it. If your eyelids are oily like mine, then I suggest after applying a thin layer of primer, to set it lightly with a translucent powder. A blending brush and a dust of Benefit's The Porefessional Agent Zero Shine (inconvenient packaging, great product) became my best friends. And this trick really worked, so from now on I can enjoy a perfect, untouched eye look all day long! I know that this is too much fuss for a shadow, but sometimes beauty has a price!
Have you tried Mac's Pain Pot?
