Nars Eyeshadow Primer

NARS Cosmetics makeup primer

NARS Cosmetics makeup primer

My last post was on the Loreal "Magic" eyeshadow primer.  We all know how that went; horrible.  Or in how I like to spell it; "whoreibble".  Since then, I have made it my mission to find a primer that was going to work for my oily eyelids.

I have been watching YouTube videos for many years now and I love the beauty community.  I think it is the best thing ever to watch videos and have other girls share their opinions on things to try and what to avoid.  Missglamorazzi is one of my favorite YouTubers and she has always raved about the Nars eyeshadow primer.  Ingrid has similar skin to mine (oily/combo and oily eyelids).  She has always sworn that this product works for her and so I felt pretty confident in trying this primer.  I was not disappointed!  Sephora was having a 15% off sale so I paid about $22 for the primer.  Not too bad.  Honestly it is kinda expensive, but I was willing to pay top dollar in order to make sure my eyeshadow stayed put!  I have given this primer a few weeks use before writing this post as well and it has not failed me yet.  I even slept with my makeup on multiple nights (not ideal/not on purpose...crazy nights hahaha) and to my surprise, my eyeshadow had not moved a muscle.  I like how it doesn't feel greasy and it was easy to blend.  I also appreciated how it didn't leave any color on my eyelids.  Some primers I have used before left a white cast or a shimmer and I personally am not a fan.  I just want it to be an invisible barrier that protects my shadows.  I didn't experience any creasing which is my biggest problem with eyeshadows.  I worked out and perspired a ton and my makeup was still flawless.  I could go on and on about how excited I am to finally have found a holy grail product and  I would highly recommend this eye primer to anyone who is looking for a product that wont disappoint.
