After my Teen Makeup Basics video i had so many recommendations for drugstore eyeshadow primers to try. I’ve never had anything other than Urban Decay’s Primer Potion in the past and as a ‘budget beauty blogger’ I thought it was about time I changed that so I picked up the new Rimmel version. Unfortunately I think this may have been the worst one I could have chosen as it just doesn’t work at all for me. It feels silicone based and rather than setting on my lid to create a base it felt slippery and anything I put on top smudged. I will say that it does work better with cream shadows, the Maybelline Colour Tattoos are definitely boosted by it but generally I woouldn’t reach for a primer for those anyway.. so.. kinda pointless.If you have this and can suggest a better way to use it please let me know! I may try setting it with a powder before adding my eyeshadow, what the space for an update!
This was a disappointing one but I will try the MUA next as it was the most recommended, should have tried that first!
