Too Drying For My Mature Lids

I really wanted Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer to work so I did try it different ways, still didn't work for me as I hoped. After it 'set' it became very dry & also I noticed the product doesn't work well with my mature lids. It super highlighted all the crepey lines even before other make-up was applied. It's really very thick. After it set, it appeared blotchy & patchy, didn't look smooth. Tried to pat it on with finger tips, smooth it on with a flat concealer brush, even tried to stipple it on, ect...yes, that's how much I wanted this to work! I only gave it two stars because of how it applied & appeared on my upper lid...didn't work for me. However, I did find another use for this product! I use it sparing underneath my eyebrows before I fill them in...you have to use the smallest amount & also 'brush away' any excess otherwise it's sticks to the brow hair & looks white & chalky. So, I use it to waterproof my eyebrow fill-in on when I know I'm going to be in the hot/humid/sweat type enviroment.

ALL MY EYE LINER PROBLEMS HAVE BEEN SOLVED.

I have ONE hooded eye, it is so annoying. I blame it on the fact that I am half Japanese and half Mexican, haha. I have dry skin, but for whatever reason my hooded eye is always really oily. There has not been one day of my life (since I started wearing makeup) that I haven't had my eyeliner end up on my eyelid or my eyeliner on the outside corner of my eyes. If i don't catch it in time, it'll look like my eyeliner is melting off my face. I felt like I had tried all eyeliners that claimed to be waterproof and smudge proof, but none ever left me satisfied. Not even Stila's #1 Best Selling Liquid Eyeliner (that's what I'm currently wearing these days). Walked into Sephora earlier this weekend and the MUA suggested this to me.ALL PROBLEMS HAVE BEEN SOLVED. I put makeup on around 6:40am, leave for work, and I don't get back from work until around 5:30pm. I work out afterwards for about an hour, and I'm talking HEAVY sweat, and my eyeliner now stays put. I LOVE IT!The tube might look small for $20, but it is mighty and you don't need a lot because a little goes along way.I am so happy with this product! I would recommend it to everyone Less

It passed my torture test!

80+ degree weather, outside, in Florida and my eye makeup stayed put! Most sensible people would not attempt a smokey eye knowing that they would be spending the evening walking around outside, sitting outside on patios and being in hot crowded places in horrible humidity, but I like to live dangerously, and this primer was able to keep up. I like that this primer comes in a squeeze tube as opposed to the applicator tube the original eye primer came in. I applied it all over my lids, and used a small brush to also apply some underneath my bottom lashes and to the outer corners of my eyes, as that is usually where I see the most smudging. A little goes a long way, so it is important to apply a thin layer. I also moisturize before applying makeup, so I did not experience any dryness as other users reported, but I am also used to using an eye primer, so this step is part of my regular makeup routine. After about 8 hours my shadow looked just as if I had just applied it, without creasing or fading, and my bottom lashline liner required minimal touch ups. I should note that I have very long bottom lashes, seasonal allergies and wear contacts, so my eyes water constantly, making it impossible to not have to touch up my eye makeup, but using this primer definitely made a difference. Next torture test will be all day travel, because nothing ruins makeup like planes, trains and automobiles! Less

Perfect for oily eyelids

Over the years I have tried every primer out there, high end,drug store, luxury brand - all of them. I have very oily eyelids, although my skin overall is not at all oily. Eyeliners and shadows always crease, transfer, wear off, even with a good primer. I was skeptical, but because of the great return policy at Sephora, I knew I had nothing to lose. This product is nothing short of amazing. It does not irritate my eyes, does not dry out my eyelids, but somehow makes every shadow and liner stay put all day long even in the hot humid New England summer weather. It also works extremely well under my brow pencil. My favorite brow pencil is not waterproof but this stuff leaves it looking perfect all day. I also wore it on a day where I watched a very sad video, very emotional, I cried like a baby and my makeup was still perfect. I don't know how they did it, but Smashbox has created a miracle product here. You only need to use a very small amount so the tube will last for a very long time and it is an amazing, super powerful eye primer. All I can say to anyone reading this review is BUY THIS PRODUCT! If you don't like it, Sephora will take it back, but I can't imagine anyone not loving it. It has truly changed my makeup routine. Rather than avoiding my favorite eye products especially during the summer, I can wear whatever I want as long as I have this on underneath. My new HG for sure!

Great eye primer!

This primer delivers to it's claims and then some more! For me, an eye primer is a must; I have oily lids and hooded eyes, without a primer anything I put on my eyelids moves around and breaks down in a few hours. With the Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer I never had any issues. The primer makes my eye looks lasts all day, my eye shadows to blend like a charm and the colors to be more vibrant and pigmented. I don't think I ever notice creasing or color fading with this primer, but it won't save a bad eye liner formula. The primer has a thick, waxy consistency; at first I was concerned as it didn't seemed to `dry` completely on the skin, but even with the waxiness everything sets once the eye look is done and doesn't move all day. A little goes a very long way; barely squeeze the tub, get a tiny amount from the tip and I'm set to go. I actually used it as my only eye primer (almost everyday) for a year and I don't think I used half of it; my tube also lasted very well, had no issues with the packaging. Less

So my eye has a deep crease with oily eyelids and it is resulting in the top half of my eyeshadow always wearing off prematurely and I wanted to know if anyone could recommend any products to use to help combat this issue/ any eyeshadow blending techniques are appreciated

THIS! I have super oily lids and with other primers even pat mcgrath shadow would wear off leaving a HOLE in the middle of my lid. With this primer nothing moves and you barely have to use any. I’ve literally worn this under some bold eyeliner, worn it all day, accidentally fell asleep in it, woke up the next morning and it was still perfect; I didn’t even have to touch up the wings 💁🏻‍♀️
