I prefer to only apply my makeup once. As busy as I am throughout the day (and night), I do not have time to touch up my makeup. And when it comes to makeup, I am lazy. Very lazy.
Always on the hunt for a great primer (in order to maintain said state of laziness), when I saw this as a point reward at one of my regular shopping stops, I snatched it up. When you live down here in the South, it’s HOT; it is a necessity to prime pretty much everything. The wear time of my eye makeup when using this was comparable to my other primers (Lorac Behind the Scenes, Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer, and of course, Urban Decay’s). The thing I liked best about this is that it has a doe foot applicator. (I was so sad when Urban Decay changed their packaging and moved away from this!) With this type of applicator, I can more easily prime under my eyes as well, without having to use a cotton swab or other similar object. Now, if I can just avoid poking myself in the eye… (did I mention I’m also a huge clutz…?)
