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 itâ€™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 itâ€™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- â€œThe smudge testâ€ 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 donâ€™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.
