I haven't been searching and reviewing eye primers lately because I own 2 of the top eyeshadow primer brands and I'm confident with them inside my makeup train case. The Urban Decay Primer Potion (UDPP) and the Too Faced Shadow Insurance (TFSI).
Lately, I have been reading positive reviews online regarding the Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer and it was perfect when I visited Korea as every Korean Cosmetics brand are cheaper there so I've decided to purchase 2 of these!
After a month of usage, here I am with my experience...
Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer says ---
Proof 10 Eye Primer supplies coverage to eyelids and around the eyes to enhance eye shadow color and integrity for a long lasting Perfect 10 look.
Made in Korea
AMW says ---
- Very creamy and easy to apply, no need to tug the lids
- Blends easily and does not create dry patches
- Cute packaging, transparent which makes it easier for me to see if I have enough product left.
- Eye shadow turns more vibrant
- Lesser fallout
- Prevents creasing of eyeshadow at least half day to more than 8 hours (this depends on how oily your lids are, also depends on your eyeshadow quality).
- No skin irritations or eye allergies occur after a month long usage.
- A little goes a long way so this will last at least 6 months.
- I find the shape of the bottle makes it difficult for the one to reach out the rest of the product!
- Applicator is good for personal use only, the applicator is not for sharing!
- Locally, difficult to purchase because it's not as visible as Skin Food, The Face Shop, etc...
- Internationally, not widely available unless you are an online shopper!
A good eyeshadow primer for our country! It does not dry out the lids and create ugly patches on already dry lids and it does not oil up too much on oily lid individuals! For it's performance, I consider this a good buy as the price is definitely For The Win! (FTW!)
Here's my rating:
If you have oily lids:
2. Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer
If you have dry lids:
1. Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer (as the consistency of this primer is smoother and creamier which makes it easier to blend)
Bear in mind that super oily lids individuals may have some creasing before the day ends. For regular lids from normal to dry, you seriously do not need to spend too much on eye primers! Finally, something inexpensive that works!
from Etude House
- Use fingers to gently apply primer to upper and lower eyelids prior to eye shadow application
- Applicable to eye lines prior to eyeliner application
- Avoid storing in high and low temperature and areas exposed to direct sunlight.
- Cease use if problems arise.
- Make sure fingers are clean when blending.
- Best applied after eye cream
- Fingers should be of gentle pressure, do not tug your eyelids
- Do not apply too much, apply at least 1 or 2 swabs each eye
- For very oily lids, if you find that this product still creases or oil up on you, try to apply first layer, let dry, then apply a second layer and see if the creasing or oiliness has lessened!
- Remove eye makeup and primer with a makeup remover at the end of the day.
- Mark your eye primer with date once open so you can keep track on the expiration date.
- If product oils up or has a weird smell, throw this product immediately.
Yes. I am glad I bought 2 in Korea!
To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who's into eye shadow application who wants the vibrancy of any eye shadows plus less fall out. People with oily, normal or dry lids are all welcome to use this!
Where to purchase and how much?
I purchased mine in Korea but you can purchase this at Etude House approx. Php300.00 something (approx $7.15)
Here's to show how I apply my Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer
It dries up invisibly and matte finish!
The NYX Dolly Pink single eyeshadow is quite difficult to show up without primer, here's a proof on how vibrant any eye shadow color can get with that the Proof 10 Eye Primer gives!
I heard this product is always out of stock, so if you have the chance to purchase one, give it a try! It's not too expensive as compared to other eye primers and again, this works!
Have you tried this primer?
