Want your eyeshadow to last all day?

If you've spent time and effort to make your eyes look good, don't you want them to stay that way throughout the day? Well, don't we all. This is one of the many things clients ask me....."How can I keep my eyeshadow on all day. It seems to wear off by the end of the day?" Alright ladies, I haven't found the miracle, but it's pretty darn close. The first thing you need to invest in is an eye primer. There are many eye primers made by many different brands for everyone to choose from (I've tried most of them). For the past 5 months, I have been using one in particular on myself and my clients. It's Too Faced Eyeshadow Insurance primer. This product is AMAZING. When I tell you that your eyeshadow is not going to come off, it's not! Your eyeshadow colors will be more vibrant, cream shadow will not run or crease and you can cry all you want (brides) but this is going to stay on. I've even tried washing this product (with eyeshadow on) with only water and it still doesn't come off. You will need to take off your eye makeup with either eye makeup remover or your face wash.
It comes in a small tube. When you squeeze the product out, you will notice the cream color. It actually goes on clear onto your eyelid. Before applying eyeshadow, allow the cream to dry for a few seconds. Make sure the color you are about to apply is the color you want, because it's not coming off.
I personally wear this everyday I wear eyeshadow.

According to the Too Faced website, here are some of the benefits of Eyeshadow Insurance:

Vitamin E conditions and smoothes eye area

Has anti-aging, antioxidant moisturizers

Can use with powder or cream eye shadows

Anti creasing formula holds shadow in place

Concentrated a rain drop size goes a long way!

You can purchase eye shadow insurance at your local Sephora, Sephora online, your local Ulta, Ulta online or Too Faced cosmetics online

  1. So glad I found your blog when I did, I was just thinking about how I needed something to help my shadow stay on longer. I'll be back for more tips! Thank you!

  2. Oooh, I'm going to have to try this. I use Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, but I'm always up to see if something works better!!!!

  3. Yes, I love this product! So much better than UDPP, which has the nuttiest packaging I have ever seen. Who want to cut it open and dig all that wasted product out? The TFSI packaging is much much better!

  4. Thank you all for the great comments. Yes, I agree, this product is much better than Urban Decay's Primer Potion mainly b/c this will not crease.

    If you have any other products you'd like me to review or have questions about, let me know.

  5. Oh nice!!!! I have tried MAC painterly paint pot as a base and it always makes my eyelids look oily, hate it. I am definitely going to try this!!!

  6. Thanks for the info i have been using the mac one but always up for a change !! If you dont mind can i put your button on my page ?

  7. Hi Belle,
    the MAC paint pots aren't actually a "base/primer." They can be used as a base to add color on top, but it's not going to keep the color on longer as does this primer.

    Hi Connie,
    I would be honored if you add my button to your page.

    Thanks for the comments ladies!

  8. Just discovered your blog - can't wait to try this!
