Milani eyeshadow primer-
I was ignorant about any kind of primers until recently, when I realized how big of a difference they make in your make-up application and longevity. So, I started hoarding on face primers, eye primers, lip primers and what-not. I also bought the much hyped Milani eyeshadow primer and now I see how it’s appropriately compared with some of the high end primers like Urban Decay and Too-Faced. An eye primer works as a base for your eye makeup by smoothening out the lines, intensifying your eyeshadows and making them blend effortlessly. It also facilitates longevity as once it’s on, the eyeshadows and liners will not budge and last much longer than usual until you remove them with a make-up remover/wipes.

My experience with Milani Eyeshadow Primer :-
This primer was a pleasant surprise as it did what it claimed to do. It intensified the pigmentation of the eyeshadows and made them last much longer. I put this primer to an ULTIMATE test- “The smudge test” on my arm by applying eyeshadow on the primed vs non-primed area and you can see from the pictures that the eyeshadows on the primed area did not budge much whereas the ones on non-primed area are more or less gone.
Packaging- It comes in a small, handy, squeezable plastic tube with a pointy opening which allows for a tiny amount to be squeezed out in one application.
Color, consistency and fragrance- It comes in a nude color which blends out into nothingness, making it suitable for all skin tones. The consistency is creamy and light-weight which blends like a dream on the lid. There is no distinguishable fragrance to it. Only the tiniest amount is required so I can see this being used for a long time, hence you get a bang for your buck.

I absolutely love this primer and see myself repurchasing it once it gets over. I highly recommend it to those who are on a budget and don’t want to burn holes in their pocket by buying higher end primers as it works in the same manner. So ladies, wear your favorite smokey-eyes or bright, summery eye makeup looks fearlessly using this primer and cease worrying about your beautiful eyeshadows creasing or getting dull as the day goes by.
