I have a confession to make here. Once I discovered that concealer can also act as a fantastic primer, I stopped picking up most of my old priming potions and started using concealer at the place. I have also started using concealer as my eyelids can get extremely oily. This really creates the best matte layer the eyeshadow can sit on without being too heavy. Occasionally, however, I still opt for an eyeshadow base if I’m creating a brighter or more dramatic look. This Elizabeth Mott primer turned out to be a random Amazon find for me. With so many rave reviews, I thought it was worth a try.
First of all, it is quite affordable compared to many other eye shadow primers in the market. Second, it’s definitely one of the best formulas I’ve tried that doesn’t crease and helps the eyelid oiliness tremendously. If you struggle with any of these things when it comes to eye shadow application, this one is definitely worth a shot. It also goes on and creates a light, non-greasy film and helps with any discoloration around the lid area.
I know it’s a little hard to tell from the photos below, but I wanted to show what my eyeshadow looked like with and without a base. It can be a bit hard to see in the photo, but the shadow tends to apply a bit more unevenly and looks less pigmented when you’re not using a primer. With the primer, however, the colors adhere much easier to the lid and look much more vibrant.
