L’Oreal promises this eye shadow primer will smooth eyelids, even skin tone, keep eye shadow from creasing and “create a flawless canvas for application of powder or cream eye shadow”.Â Packaged in a small plastic tube with a doe foot applicator, it did a fine job of keep my eye shadow in place for a good six hours. I can’t say it smoothed my eye lids and I don’t need to even the skin tone on my eye lids, but I’m sure it work fine for that too. What it doesn’t do is intensify the color like Urban Decay Primer Potion or last as quite as long. It’s not as smooth as Urban Decay or Too Faced Shadow Insurance. I didn’t experience this but other reviews have said it dries too quickly and can get patchy. As the product gets used up it becomes harder and harder to get more product out of the tube. L’Oreal De-Crease Eye Shadow Base does a fine job and nothing more. If you are a novice makeup addict, this is a good choice to get you started with using primers. If you are more advanced and wear eye shadow every day, there are better choices. Or, if you need a less expensive ($8)Â alternative to yourÂ more expensive eye shadow primer, give L’Oreal De-Crease a try!
