My Experience with Tom Ford Eye Primer Duo
I am someone who has oily lids. So I always follow the process of applying eyeshadow primer, then compact powder and the eyeshadow. It has always been a two step process for my eyeshadow priming to keep oil on my lids at bay and keep my eyeshadows looking fresh. It works. It has always worked for me.
When I saw the Tom Ford Eyeshadow primer duo, it felt as if someone has really answered my call. 😀
This eyeshadow primer duo is a two part product but packed in one. The bottom part of the pot hold the eyeshadow primer and the top part holds the powder that you have to apply after applying the cream.
Pure Love I’d say.
- The texture of the eyeshadow primer is thin and goes on seamlessly on the lids without any heaviness. And the powder part totally prepares the lids of smooth and even eyeshadow application.
- The cream primer is super smooth and applies on the delicate eyelids without any tugging. And the texture of the powder is also soft and smooth.
- I have tried using this eyeshadow primer with various texture of eyeshadows- matte, satin, shimmery, wet, dry… just everything. 😀 It does not make eyeshadows crease. And this is coming from someone whose eyeshadows crease like crazy if I don’t wear an eyeshadow primer underneath my eyeshadows.
- It does not have any color of its own. Upon application it is like a pale skin tone color. That ensures that the colors of your eyeshadows stay true.
- It makes eyeshadows looks brighter.
- It prevents eyeshadows from fading and making them look fresh all day/night long.
- The little mirror intact in the case helps in case you are in a hurry.
- A little goes a long way.
- I would say that it is quite well packaged product still it could be a little less bulky. The packaging is gorgeous though.
Overall, I am suuuper impressed with the product. Very good quality and it worked brilliantly for me. If you don’t bother about the two step eyeshadow priming then may be you could give it a miss. But I’d say it would be worth investing in!
