Too Faced Shadow Insurance

Hello everyone! If you've been reading my blog for awhile you know that I often say I have oily skin, having oily skin also means I have oily eyelids. This creates a real problem for my eyeshadow because it creases by noon. I absolutely hate having creased eyeshadow, but I've never been able to find an eyelid primer that's kept the oil down. I had been wanting to purchase Urban Decay shadow primer but I kept reading reviews that said Too Faced primer was actually better. I decided to give it a shot and ordered a tube from amazon; it was a little expensive ($17 per tube, plus shipping came to about $22) but based on the reviews I had read I thought it would be worth it.

Well, after using it for a few days I've come to the conclusion that....... I have never been more impressed with a makeup product. I'm convinced this primer is a miracle worker, my eyeshadow doesn't crease, smudge or budge from my eyelid all day! The primer also helps bring out the colour of the eyeshadow and makes it really pop. I put on the primer at about 7:30 in the morning and when I go to bed at 11:00 my eyeshadow hasn't creased at all! I know it sounds sort of dumb but I was so excited when I found out how amazing this primer was. I really recommend this, everyone needs this. I love it!


  1. The shipping was $22? Or, the shipping plus the cost of the product came to $22?

    What does this product look and feel like when you put it on?

  2. The total cost of the product was $22.

    I meant to include more in the review but I was really tired when I wrote this so I forgot to add a bunch of things. It has a rather wet consistency and feels like lotion when you first apply it but dries in about 15 seconds. It looks skin coloured when it first comes out of the tube but when you apply it blends in to your skin tone.
