I tend to skip out on the minor steps that would probably help make your makeup last a lot longer throughout the day. Figuring that making some changes in my routine would probably bring along more benefits than cons, I sought out to get an eyeshadow primer.
My immediate thought went to the Urban Decay Primer Potion, but I thought considering that this was the first time I was purchasing a primer, I would try something from the drugstore first. While perusing the aisles, I found Maybelline’s Master Prime.
I only saw it in the one shade in Canada (#420), but this may mean that there are more to come. I have seen more shades on Google search so check out what is available in your country! The packaging is a rectangular, easy to grip case with a doe-foot applicator. Application is super easy, as all you need to do is swipe on some product onto your lids and blend it in. I use my finger for that process.
Regarding the rest of the makeup routine, I find that the base does a fantastic job in smoothing out the eyelid and causes no problems when I need to blend in my shadows. The application is very smooth and I have no trouble blending it on my lid itself. It gives your lid a very matte appearance and I would not be surprised if anyone decided to go out with just the primer on!
This has definitely helped with the longevity of my makeup look as I am happy to report that I can still see the eyeshadow look I did earlier in the day in the mirror at the end of the night. No creasing either with cream eyeshadows.
The product did exactly what I was looking for. Bonus points for being affordable and an easy find!
