Avon Eyeshadow Primer Review

Hi guys!

This is just going to be a short review of a product that I've been using and loving for a while now. I featured it in my February Haul and have been loving ever since.

It is of course my Avon eye shadow primer

I compared it previously to MAC's paint pot in Ocre only more pinky beige - essentially it is very similar only it has more of a face primer feel...silky? I guess.

The packaging is not very fancy, yet because its glass it does have a more heavy and expensive feel to it - however as a girl with long nails applying this product with fingers directly is impossible (but hey what are concealer brushes for...right?)

The product goes on smoothly and blends to a nice even tone, I say tone as 'colour' seems too strong for how it appears. But as I said before when I bought it, Avon should be thinking about bringing this out in at least two more shades as it is too light for darker skin tones.

Its kind of a Ronseal product in that it does exactly what it says on the tin. It prolongs your eyeshadow wear, prevents creasing and helps to make colours 'pop'. I have had no problems blending my eyeshadows after using this, I do however let it dry a few minutes before applying as I don't want my eyeshadow to stick to it and become un-blendable.

Its not the best eye shadow primer out there, but its affordable and it works. And quite honestly I can only commend Avon for bringing out continuously good products recently - they seem to be on the ball - long gone are the blue shadow and red lip looks that we associate with the 'Avon lady' of the 80's/90's.

If you are in the market for a eye primer I would give this a go.

Hope you found this helpful :)

Muchos love
