Avon Eyeshadow Primer Review

10:30:00 AM


I have a major crush. Like a huge crush. Let's start from the beginning. I love eyeshadow. I have way too many palettes than I'll ever need and have every color under the sun. It doesn't matter what brand or type of eyeshadow I'm using, there's one thing that's a must have for me: eyeshadow primer.

Eyeshadow primer is super important for two reasons… First, it evens out any discoloration in the eyelid area. By creating an "even look" first, your eyeshadow will look more consistent. Secondly, it'll help prevent creasing! This is a major problem for me at times. I'm not sure if I have "greasy" eyelids or run around too much during the day but sometimes my eyeshadow becomes mobile and looks like an absolute mess towards the middle of the day. It can just start "melting" which is not a cute look. Of course I want to do everything in my power to prevent this from happening. Since I started using eyeshadow primer, its become easier to control this issue. Avon's eyeshadow primer also happens to be waterproof so it's super helpful when I'm working out. A girl still wants to look cute when at the gym!


For over 5 years, I was using MAC's 'Pro Longwear" Paint Pots as an eyeshadow primer. My fave color to use is Painterly which is a nice nude shadow and doesn't conflict with any of my eyeshadows. I still use MAC but Avon's primer is a cheaper alternative and works just as well in my opinion. Avon's primer is only available in light beige but I think it's natural even to use with any skin tone. You can even use it alone if you prefer to keep your makeup look natural. The texture is a lot creamier and softer than MAC's but I get the same results. I prefer to apply this over my eyelids with my fingers because it's easier and I have more control. But sometimes I do apply with a cream shadow brush. With a $7.99 price tag, it's super affordable and definitely worth a try.

Do you use eyeshadow primer? What's your favorite?

    1. Thank you love. I never used to use one either and then a few years ago, my skin did a total flip on me. My skin became so oily and my makeup melted off everyday. Primers have helped me soooo much. :)

  3. Perhaps I'll check it out once I'm done with my MAC Paintpot. Even though this one is cheaper the MAC would go to waste if I let it dry up first. :) I just got it though and it seems to last forever. Thanks for the tip! XO

  5. This sounds lovely and a great dupe for painterly which I sometimes use. I'm very faithful to my NARS eyeshadow base primer, it's brilliant!
