Too faced - Shadow Insurance. Anti Crease Eyeshadow Primer

Hello everyone! :)
I'll start off by apologising, my blogging has been quite slack of late. What with Christmas coming up and other things going on in life I just haven't had the time, but today I will be sharing my views on this wonderful product I've discovered!
I heard about this product on beautylish, which has fast become the most used app on my phone. It's great for make up and beauty inspiration, photos and articles. I love it! Anyway, this primer was one of the top rated products and I'm a sucker for anything with a good review. I must admit, I wasn't familiar with too faced as a brand so I went on their website to check out a few of their items. I fell in love instantly! Their products are so well packaged and the quality looks amazing. My only gripe was the price tag. I'm a girl on a very tight budget so I decided to check eBay to see if I could find this primer for a good price. I found it from an eBay shop with good feedback for £4.98 so I just had to get it! I usually use benefit "stay don't stray" eye shadow primer and I find this absolutely amazing, but I'm afraid on this occasion I did stray to discover new things!

Here's what it says on the box

"Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer is your full-coverage insurance policy against all fading, creasing, melting, blurring, oil-slicked and hard-to-blend eye-shadow accidents.
Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer is a silicone based eye-shadow primer that transforms any eye shadow into a perfectly blendable colour-drenched intensified version of itself, then locks down perfectly ‘till you take it off.
This skin soothing formula evens out the skin tone on your lids and smoothes out lines while it secures a barrier between the oils of your skin and your make-up so no shadow catastrophes will ever happen again."

Ok, so let's get down to business, the directions for use say you only need a small drop to cover each eyelid and this is definitely true. That one small drop covered my eyelid evenly. The formula is quite thick and concentrated, hence why you only need a drop. It's silky smooth and blends in to your own skin perfectly. It dried invisibly so it didn't make my eyelids a different colour from the rest of my face, which is always a good thing. I used this under my urban decay eyeshadow in "S&M" and it didn't budge all day! Urban decay eye shadows are very pigmented anyway but using this primer seemed to intensify the colour even more. At the end of the first day I used this, I came home and my eye shadow still looked as though it had been freshly applied. There were no creases or smudges. Just my eye shadow, still in tact! All in all, I think this is definitely my new go to primer. I will still use my benefit primer under my concealer but as far as my eyelids go. They are converted to this amazing little wonder product!
