I finally decided to buy an eyeshadow primer! I usually use any concealer on my eyelids but I have heard quite a lot of good things about the Milani Eyeshadow Primer and I decided to give it a try. I had great difficulty finding it because it is not available in India. Nonetheless, I finally got it a few days ago and I have used it quite a lot so far. Read my thoughts to find out how this primer worked for me.
Price: $6.99 (excluding shipping charges)
Intensifies and extends the wear of any shadow.
My Experience with Milani Eyeshadow Primer:
Everything the product or brand claims is true. This is quite a hyped product and now I know why. The packaging is cute and sleek. It has a squeeze tube which is comfortable to use plus you need a small amount of product to prime the eyelids. This is the first time I am using a primer because I have been using concealers to prime my eyelids and they do work well so I never really thought of investing in a primer, but I am glad I purchased this.
It is available in only one shade which is nude. Once you blend out the shade, it looks quite clear. The formula is a little drying but because I have oily eyelids, it worked amazing for me. If you have dry eyelids, then you might not be the biggest fan of this product. I picked a shimmery shade the first time I was using this primer because I wanted to see if it intensifies the colour and also I usually face the problem of glitter particles falling on my cheeks after 4 to 5 hours. But with this primer, there was no issue at all.
My eyeshadows stayed in place for 8 hours and my eye makeup looked great all through the day. It was a little tough to remove the eyeshadows because the primer is literally like some glue! But frankly, this is not the problem. I am extremely HAPPY with the staying power! This is an incredible primer from the drugstore. You guys have to buy this right away!
Pros of Milani Eyeshadow Primer:
• Smooth texture.
• Long wearing.
• Intensifies the colour.
• Nude shade which is versatile.
• Easy to use.
• Cute packaging.

Cons of Milani Eyeshadow Primer:

IMBB Rating: 4.8/5
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Milani Eyeshadow Primer: The only reason I cut points is that I had to spend a little time taking off the eye makeup. I am surely repurchasing this primer once it gets over. I highly recommend it!
