You can really never have enough eye primers.
When it comes to applying eyeshadow, it’s super important to apply a primer first so your shadow can apply smoothly, without creases, and stay on vibrant. Typically I just use a cream shadow for this purpose since it seems to work the same anyways, but there really is nothing like applying an eyeshadow primer to your lids since they work the best and really do help with shadow vibrancy and longevity.
As you guys know, Avon now sells The Face Shop products (they just celebrated their one year anniversary together) and one of the lines is VDL. Recently, they sent over their VDL Expert Color Primer for Eyes (C$35, on sale for $28), which helps to prep lids for a smoother application, while extending the wear of eye makeup for all day wear, meaning no creasing or smudging.
Available in three shades, Original, Shimmer (a champagne shimmer), and Serenity (a baby blue), these primers contain silk protein which helps to nourish the eye area, as well as Tahitian black pearl powder and amino acids to moisturize and brighten. The formula is nice and creamy and blends out perfectly to an even finish, making it the perfect base to layer underneath shadow. For the coloured ones, you can also apply these by themselves or over top of shadow to add a little pop to your makeup look.
In terms of primers, I’ll be honest, these do kind of range on the more pricey side, but I find VDL in general is a more expensive line. I do like them and like the colour range they chose, plus the fact that there are so many ways to wear them. I also like how they work to soften and hydrate the eye area, which isn’t something that I’ve seen before, so it’s nice that they have that skincare benefit as well.
Have you tried the VDL Expert Color Primers?
