vibrancy eye primer


Vibrancy eye primer came up with MAC Primed for perfection collection. It is part of the permanent collection. I have bene using this for almost 15-20 days now and I am quite pleased with the products.

What I love about MAC Prep and Prime Vibrancy Eye Primer :

  • This is basically a primer for your under eye area. Just like you have a face primer to go before your foundation, MAC has launched a primer for concealers as well.
  • It is gel-cream like iridescent looking product that goes on super smooth on your under eye area. It is non greasy, gets absorbed in skin easily and adds a little brightness to your under eyes.
  • It creates and excellent base for the concealer to go on smoothly without making the appearance of concealer look heavy on your under eye area.
  • It prevents the concealer from caking or creasing for hours at ago There have been days when I have applied this around 11 in the morning and at around 6 in evening I could see my under eye area looking just fine. I mostly use the MAC studio finish concealer under the eyes and that is not a super long lasting concealer. With vibrancy under eye primer underneath, that has stayed under my eyes for so long and also prevented the concealer form creasing. So many times I have applied this during the day and haven’t felt the need to touch up my concealer while going out somewhere in evening. 🙂
  • It adds a bit of hydration and luminosity to the under eye area but don’t take it as a substitue for under eye cream. However this never makes your under eye area dry or uncomfortable through out the day.
  • A little goes a long way.

What I do not like about Vibrancy Eye Primer

  • It has caffeine in it to reduce puffy eyes. Well! but that would happen only if you use it every single day. With this price tag , you’d probably want to use it occasionally.
  • The pump dispenses more than the required product at times. And really, you don’t want to waste such an expensive product. A tube packaging with thin nozzle would have been a better packaging for this.

Overall, I really really like this stuff. I would suggest this especially to women, who have deep lines under their eyes or very dark circles and require to use thick concealers. This would really help to make your thick concealers go smoothly, last long and also prevent them from settling in fine lines for long hours.

  1. wow… many products in the market….this one sounds great but first I need to buy a concealer….still struggling to decide on which one to buy !!! :nababana:

  2. that price IS pretty steep but if it works, maybe its really worth a buy. and i am glad you mentioned the “The pump dispenses more than the required product at times. And really, you don’t want to waste such an expensive product”. How do you deal with that? I have the same problem with my MAC concealer as well.

          1. no na? prolong wear mein pata nahin clatha..its just brown all over..i mean obviously with the concealer but.. :whistle: lets see how long this lasts..i bought this on July 18th 🙂

  3. :yawn: morninggggggggggggggggggg…..i like bottle…don’t know about primer but you can give me..i use 😛 :toothygrin: :tongue:

    My thumb nail hurting…I get this problem if i wash vessels or clean up the counter..guess some reaction with the dishwashing soap…so me no comment much..only put smileys from now on :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank:

    1. errrr, my thumb nail toh always hurting coz of overtyping. :(( I also put smileys for you :preen: :poop: :poop: :phoolan: :pan: :tongue: :tongue:

  4. I have 2 paint-pots to finish. So right now I am avoiding to even look….otherwise I know I will be tempted :nababana: :nababana:

    1. hihihi actually I guess you can make your concealer work with powder setting mainly. But sometimes when women have very heavy dark circles and they need to apply heavy concealers, all that creasing comes into play. So at this stage you cna pretty much avoid it. 🙂

  5. Looks like I need this. 😀 I’ve read too that eyeshadow primers like urban decay’s can be used as under eye primer too. :))

  6. Caffeine is as stupid ides IMO…coz I would never dare to use such a costly thing everyday. :nababana: :waiting:
    Paise ped oe nahi ugte hai na? :rotfl: :nono: :nono:
    Also,Rati…I have some very bad news….I now have rather dark circles. 😥 😥 😥 :(( :(( :((
    Do you have any home-made cures?? I don’t want to reach for an under eye cream just yet….I’m using almon oil…but it isn’t helping much. :((

    1. caffine no pragya is good for reducing the puffiness under the eyes. 😀

      hawwww!! 5 days mein under eye circles kaise ho gaye ? :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:

      you just sleep properly. may be cut a thin slices of potato on keep on your eyes. it’s quite effective. :-*

  7. muzhe bhi chahiye….. 😐
    what alll tooooo apply :yawn: :yawn: …just started using concealers everyday…now apply this and then apply that……but i think i will use this much more…since i can replace the current eye cream

    1. hehheh morning. 😀 this would really help in preventing the caking part. :))

      yeah for day you can but for night i suggest that you use the under eye cream. is bherry nice but still give it a try before buying. is super expensive na. i dont want you to be throwing chappals from bangalore at me. :puppy: :puppy:

      1. :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: irrespective of how it does…i can still throw chappals frm blr and it will not reach u 😐 😐 😐 why waste it…i will bring it with me when i cm to del next :woot: :woot: :woot:
