Another new drugstore eye product that caught my eye are the Maybelline Master Prime Long-Lasting Eyeshadow Bases. I picked up one shade just after Christmas in Prime + Illuminate because I thought the color was really pretty. Since the Color Tattoos have such great staying power, I had high expectations for this.
Prime + Illuminate is a beautiful metallic rose pink shade. It reminds me of Urban Decay Sin. The primer has a sponge applicator that makes it SO easy to apply. I wish every primer I had came with this sponge! It’s flexible, soft, and doesn’t carry too much product.
I did notice that when applied on the eyes, this product dries VERY quickly! It didn’t crease on me before applying shadow over it, which is greatly appreciated as well. When that happens, it doesn’t bode well for applying shadow.
When I use this with shadow, it doesn’t budge at all. This is an excellent primer, especially with the $8 price point that I paid for it. This is also very beautiful sheered out and worn alone.
Here’s hoping that Maybelline releases these in more colors! There are two more colors besides this one that are more neutral if shiny isn’t your thing. 🙂 I can definitely seeing this becoming a favorite for me!
