Best and Worst Eyeshadow Primers

Have you ever hear of eyeshadow primers? Girl you said No? Well let me introduce you to the wonders of an amazing product that keep your eyeshadow in place and enhance the intensity of the colors as well. Whether your use a little bit of eye makeup or are the diva queen, I say this product is a must!

They come in different formulas, some very good some not so much!

In this post I want to show you the best and worst eyeshadow primers that I have used, from high end to drugstore. Swatches are below the review. What's your favorite eyeshadow primer? 

+ Comes in a gel form with a light beige tone. Evens out your lid and helps brighten your shadows . This is the one I used on my makeup kit for clients because of it's long lasting results, the shadows do not move,crease or loose life! And because it dries and stay so well, is great for oily lids.

Price: $20.00

+  The texture is more liquidy than a gel, but it will still cover your lid and hide imperfections.  Works great to hold your shadows all day, but won't help made them brighter because he goes on sheer. This primer will be great on all skin types, but sets really well and I will also recommended for oily lids. 

Price: $20.00

  • Rimmel Exaggerate undercover shadow primer 
This primer is really sheer, does not cover well or evens out your lid. It's a little shinny and do not set or help your shadows stay. 
I would not recommend it for anyone. There is better drugstore options. See bellow (wink...wink) 

Price around $5.00 Not worth it! 
+ This Milani primer has a gel texture, very similar to the Urban Decay and Too Faced primers. It can be a bit more sheer, but it's functionality is equally as good! I had used it on works days over 8 hours and the shadows hold up and do not move, they might not look as fresh after a long time but it does hold them in place. 
This is my recommendation as the best Drugstore option! 

Price: $ 6.99 
  • MAC Soft Ochre Paintpot 
+ Popularly sold as a primer, this is basically a cream eyeshadow with primer properties. Paintpots are longwearing and their texture is creamy. They come in a variety of colors but Soft Ochre is a light beige tone that works in light to medium skin tones. I like to used this paintpot over a primer to intensify the shadow colors. But I have used it by itself and it works well, but can move if I'm out in the heat. If you have very dry skin, this product will work great alone on your lid. 

Price: $21.00 

Take a look at the swatches below.

My Experience: T-Secret Spa Facial. Orlando

A month ago i was given the opportunity to check out a local Spa in Orlando called T-Secret. I  got the pleasure to be worked on by the lovely esthetician Jane Johnson, who I have to say gave me the more deep, thorough facial I've ever had in my life! I’d like to give you a quick run through my experience!

T-Secret is a spa that operations on one philosophy: “Problem skin can look better with the use of Acnecare natural treatment products in combination with our signature Tamahra’s Secert Deep Pore Cleansing Treatment protocols”. The menu only has one facial on the menu, but it is a facial that you will never forget. The facial is more a treatment than the relaxing facial you are probably accustomed to, but if you want results, then you need to keep reading.

The spa is located in the heart of College Park on Edgewater Drive. When you arrive, your esthetician will guide you to a room in the back of the building where you will be provided with a gown, warm socks and a nice comfy reclining chair. From there you ready to get started!

First up, cleaning and prepping where they use only alkaline water to minimize the presence of bacteria. Then all of the products used are manufactured at a local lab containing no chemicals, preservatives, colors or fragrances. I liked that there was not big splash of water or shuffling of products, Jane has the system so down pack that the process felt very fluent and smooth.

After the cleaning and prepping comes the steaming! You go through steaming for about 20 minutes (three seven minute sessions) this is done the old fashion way, boiling water over a bucket and a towel over your head. I must say that I was surprised when Jane pulled out the little cart with the bucket, but after it was all finished I truly understood why she did it. You get all of your face and neck steamed with no cold spots that could close up pores as with a regular machine steaming. Jane also helped me adjust my body and position so that I could get comfortable during the process.

Next up, the biggie: Extractions! T-Secret prides themselves for being great at extractions, and I can say, “yes they are!” Jane had covered my skin with a gel prior to steaming and then right after she covered me with saran wrap to help keep my skin moist and pores open. I love that she didn’t use a metal extraction tool and was gentle, but firm with my face.

After the extractions, there are a series of simply amazing products layered onto your skin for masking, all made to especially calm and soothe the skin. I was able to feel how everything Jane placed on my skin was working together and I can imagine if you deal with frequent breakouts on your face that this part is going to feel like heaven! after masking, your get clean moisturized and are all done!

This is my skin after one month of having the T Secret signature facial, and I have to tell you that this treatment cleaned my skin amazingly! I've felt like all of my skin products are actually working now that my pores have been cleansed so thoroughly. The picture shows me with zero, yes zero makeup on! And as you can see in my after, my skin looks radiant and smoother. This treatment is totally worth it!

To all my fabulous readers Jane has a special offer for you when you call and book with her. This 2 hour facial for only $100.00.  Just mention that you read about it here at Beauty by Cat Blog.
