|Excuse the untamed eyebrows, someone just ran out of brow gel 😉|
I’m back to blogging and I missed you all! (my Internet is finally fixed, Hallelujah) and today’s short post is there to show you a little experiment I did with two primers.
A few weeks back I reported about Benecos eyeshadow base, which worked rather great for mineral eye makeup. Having oily lids usually prevents me to go for cream shadows. However, I made an exception with RMS new eyepolish in “Imagine”, which is a stunning metallic purple. I decided to test out Benecos eyeshadow along with Jane Iredale Zap & Hide Concealer, which is initally – as you can tell – a concealer, but because of its dry texture, turned out to be a solid eyeshadow base. On the top picture, you can see the primer + the eyeshadow alltogether. The color looks slightly different on the left, but it’s because of the lighting. On the bottom picture, this is how my makeup looked like after 4-5 hours. As you can tell, there’s barely any makeup left, especially with the Benecos primer. As much as I enjoy Benecos’ base for loose pigment eyeshadow, it doesn’t work for cream eyeshadows at all. Seems like the only solution for me is to use my Jane Iredale concealer as a primer for cream shadows (but I clearly still need to reapply some makeup once during the day) until I find a something that will help the product stay put.
Have you found a base that works with cream eyeshadows?
ps. There will be a thorough review of RMS eye polish “Imagine” 🙂
