A Moisturizing, Non-Silicone Eyeshadow Primer

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog. If you see this post elsewhere, it has been plagiarized.* 

There are many eye primers or eyeshadow base creams.  Many are made with silicone and that is fine for some.  However, for those who have dry skin or have mature skin; silicone based eye primers can make the eye area less appealing.

I bought this one from DIY Cosmetics Eye Primer/Concealer when I hauled some of the pigments a few months back.  I figured an ounce sized eye primer for less than $7 was worth a try.

Non-Silicone Eyeshadow Base/Primer

I know for some of you, this flesh-tone cream will not work because it is wax and oil based.  However, for others who have skin which works out better with this type of mixture, you might have been looking for an affordable one which wasn't as deeply pigmented as a cream foundation.  Cream foundations tend to dilute the eyeshadow colors and can make them look flat.

This cream is similar to a creamy lipstick but not the type which is too slippery in texture.  Although, it can be used as a concealer, if you have really dark circles, you will probably want to use a concealer in addition to this.  It doesn't take much product to spread around the eyes, so start out with a small amount and add if it isn't enough.  Less chance of creasing if done this way too!

The formula has a slight luminosity to it, even though you can't really see it in the container, on the skin it does bounce the light off the skin softly and evenly.

The Subtle Luminosity

The texture will leave the skin moisturized.  I suggest using as little eye cream as possible because the oils in the formula will moisturize the eyes.  Also, to allow it to work better, let the formula rest on the skin a few minutes before eyeshadow application.

As for application of eyeshadow, I find this one brings out the color better on many powder eyeshadows.  I also notice my eyes don't feel dry or tight.  And with an ounce of product, I can use a bit of this around the cheeks also for an even application of blush.

Amplifies Color

If you are looking for an alternative to silicone based eyeshadow base or primers, try this one.  It isn't as slick and slippery as some other non-silicone eye primers I have tried.  With proper prepping, this base does make my eyeshadows last and the colors less dry looking.

An ounce of product for less than $7 isn't going to hurt much especially if you are looking for a well made mixture of non-silicone eyeshadow base.  Worth every dollar just to try.

This product is no longer available.
