First Impressions:  I recently finished a deluxe sample size of this, and this is by far my FAVORITE eyeshadow primer ever. Like, this beats out Urban Decay Primer Potion. . .it’s just that good. This will be a short Product Spotlight because I really have no complaints. . . ! :)

Packaging: This is the old packaging – the new packaging is a tube. The old packaging is in a tube that reminds me of skinny mascaras, like Mally’s mascaras. It has a doe-foot looking applicator, but the applicator never separates from the product, instead it has a clicky bottom that I’m not really a huge fan of, but whatever.

Scent: This doesn’t have much of a scent to it at all.

Color/Pigmentation: This is the color of a very pale concealer, and pigmentation is irrelevant, as you blend it into your skin until it’s sheer anyways.

Staying Power: This is amazing. Even with cream shadows, this doesn’t crease for me. This is my holy-grail eyeshadow primer! :)

Details On Mine: I received mine in a Sephora Favorites boxed set a while back. Mine is full-size, 0.05 FL OZ. I have tried this and the deluxe sample size (0.1 FL OZ) and I would def repurchase. I want to see if there is any difference between this packaging and the new packaging that is worthwhile.

Directions/How I Use It: (From the packaging:) “Use the applicator tip to smooth a very light, sheer layer directly over eyelids. Wait a few seconds to dry, and then apply bareMinerals eye color.” That’s basically the gist of what to do:)

Price/Availability: This is available here for $18.00 USD/? size. (It says twice as much with the new packaging so maybe 0.10 OZ?)

Other Shades: This is not available in any other shades to my knowledge.
