Yesterday I had a little make up shopping in SM department store and this eyelid primer from Eyes lips face is one of the stuff I grabbed. I'm not planning to get this whole set but the single tube costs PHP 129 while this set cost PHP249. (plus the single tube is so small!)
What does it promise?
* longer lasting and crease-proof eyeshadow
*you can also wear it alone, yes w/o any e/s!
So here is how the set looks like. It comes in three colors.
I asked the saleslady what is the difference of the three besides its color, she told me that its all the same & she also told me that the pearl color can be used as a brow bone highlighter. I was intrigued about that one.

a more realistic view of the colors (since the bottles are tinted with their colors!)
Here are the swatches of the primers when blended and when the e/s is applied.
This is my favorite among the three.
Now I know why the saleslady told me that this color can be used as a brow bone highlighter simply because it has this little glitters on it. (which I don't really like!)
See how shimmery it is? I think its not really advisable to use this if you will use a matte color eyeshadow unless you want that effect.
For the creasing, i'm planning to apply this product on days that I really need to wear dramatic eyeshadow for a long time. ( I'll give you an update to that!)As for my opinion I would give this eyelid primer a score of 3 out of five. I'm not really satisfied with the product (based on my initial try and this swatches). I want my eyelid primer to intensify the colors (well, it's not mentioned in the box that it does!) and not just crease-proof and for long wear.
Will I purchase this again? Hmmm.. Maybe not! It's cheap for an eyelid primer but this is not the primer i'm looking for.
Hope this would help!
