After trying MANY different eyeshadow primers in my time, I can honestly say Too Faced Eyeshadow Insurance meets all my expectations and then some! The product comes in an easy squeeze tube, is easy to apply and lasts a long time. To get the most out of this, I recommend washing your face (including eyelids) prior to application (it just helps it last longer and adhere better).
To apply, you only need a very, very small amount; I’d say about 1/4 the size of a pea. Dot it on until absorbed with your ring finger and wait for it to set for about 30 seconds. I usually apply translucent powder under my eyes while I’m waiting for it to set.
You will instantly see a difference in the way your eyeshadow applies and appears on your eyelids – it will be vibrant and ‘stick’ better. Higher end eyeshadows like MAC, NARS, etc. usually last for about 10 – 12 hours without creasing, and drugstore brands last for about 8 hours.
And if you only want to try it without committing to the full size, you can find sample tubes on eBay for around $9 (with shipping).
