I always want to use an eyeshadow primer before I apply eyeshadow but I always seem to forget, so I decided to keep an eyeshadow primer on my dressing table to remind myself.
Priming your eyes before applying eyeshadow makes a huge difference to your eye make-up. I feel as though if I don’t use a primer my eyeshadow will look grey or too dull and the colours won’t be as bold as I want them to be.
I recently picked up the L’Oreal Color Riche Eye Primer Base and I’ve been using it whenever I apply eyeshadow. I think I have a love hate relationship with this primer, I like how my eyeshadow looks after I’ve applied it but it takes forever to blend it on to your eyes as it is not creamy what’s so ever!
I have to say I do prefer the NYX Eye Pencil in Milk as a primer/base as it is so creamy and my eyeshadow lasts forever.
Yet I do still like the L’Oreal one but I would buy the NYX one a million times as for the L’Oreal one I wouldn’t buy it again, however for £5.99 it is a good price as drugstores are always having offers on so you could get it for less.
Hope this helped any of you who were considering buying this or looking for a eyeshadow primer.
