I thought about getting the much talked about Urban Decay Primer Potion, but then I figured the packaging of this one was way better and fuss free. I have very oily lids so a product like this was a must have.
A few reasons why I prefer Too Faced Shadow Insurance better then the Urban Decay Primer Potion:
-the tube is very easy to get all the product out and you won't need to cut open any packages/tubes.
-a little goes a long way. All you need are 2-3 dots to cover you're entire browbone and lid. It also dries quickly and you're ready to go.
-since it doesn't have a sponge tip, and the product comes straight out of the tube, it's much more hygenic. Sponges can create bacteria. And you just use your fingers to blend and apply.
Other things I liked about this is that my eyeshadow doesn't crease, even after I once fell asleep with all my make up on! Crazy. I've read some reviews where people say this product sucks and does creases but honestly, I don't understand how that could be possible. As soon as it dries, it transforms into a matte/dry finish and my lids never get oily when I have this on. Plus it intensifies shadow colors.
My only complaint is that the product can separate: when you squeeze some out you get a clear liquid first, so it's best to smush the product around in the tube before using so it mixes.
I use it with my cheaper eyeshadows like Coastal Scents eyeshadows, Revlon and Boots No7.
Have you tried this one? Which is your favorite shadow primer?
**I just read somewhere people use this as a lip primer.
