There’s a really simple way to change the shape of…
You got that eyeshadow blend perfect, and your shadow freakin’ creases on you. The struggle! So when a new primer came to town, Lock-It Color Correcting Eyeshadow Primer, I had to try it.
I have a fairy oily eye area, so most primers don’t work. My typical routine is a layer of Urban Decay Primer Potion followed by MAC Paint Pot in Painterly. This works most of the time, but not always. Seriously though, two primers? Let’s find a better solution.
Lock-It Color Correcting Eyeshadow Primer is the first eye primer to feature five shades that target discoloration and smooth the appearance of imperfections according to your skintone. Unlike one-shade-fits-all primers, Kat’s formula color corrects your specific skintone to neutralize lids so that you can show off super-saturated, true color payoff.
What I didn’t notice at first, and this is a heads up to you, there’s a sharpener hidden in the bottom of the crayon! Genius.
I received two shades to try, obviously I stuck to the Fair shade. Now you can tell there is a bit of a difference in consistency with these shades. Fair is a bit tackier, creamier where Tan is a bit smoother. What I noticed about both is that they are opaque and blend easily with my finger.
Underneath a MAC pigment, you can see the Lock-It Color Correcting Eyeshadow Primer really boosts the luminescence of the shade and brightens up the lid area in general. It cancelled out redness and hid any veins or discolouration.
Here’s my MAC x Charlotte Olympia look. To really test out the efficacy of the primer, I used it on the eye on the left only. You can see how much brighter the pigment on the lid is, and by the end of the day, my shadow had not budged on the one side and was total crease city on the other. So yes friends, THIS PRIMER WORKS!
Will it replace my go-to primer routine? Yes, yes it will. It’s creamy enough that it glides over my lids like Urban Decay Primer Potion (I have some crepe-y areas so I don’t want it to accentuate that). But it also has the pigmentation that MAC’s Painterly has… so no more redness and it’s a perfect base to bring out those bright shadows too.
When I tested it against bare skin, I saw creasing on the bare side within 2 hours. On the Kat Von D side, NO creasing at all after 10 hours. 10 HOURS!
