MAKEUP REVOLUTION FOCUS & FIX EYE PRIMER
Most of the time when ever I do an eye makeup I always use an eye primer, this way my makeup lasts longer and the eye shadows pop. This eye primer has a similar texture to a concealer, a creamy texture with a satin finish once you have blended it in. It does have a smooth feel to once applied on the eye lids. The primer does take a bit of time to get absorbed and remember a little goes a long way. The shade is a bit light on my but once the eye shadow goes on it isn't noticeable at all. If you are on the darker skin tone side and worried thinking the shade will be an issue, don't its perfectly fine.
Lets get down to see how it performed. I actually have mixed feelings about this primer, its not the best but for the price I would say that its relatively good. I used it this on quite a few different occasions and each time the out come was different. I noticed that if I used this primer and stay in doors that the eye makeup lasts around 6 hours before it starts creasing. If I am out and about doing stuff outdoors then it lasts only about 2-3 hours and then the dreaded creasing appears. If you have oily eye lids like me then I suggest using this primer for indoor occasions and its not very suitable for days your out and about doing things.
The primer is easy to blend and you can either use a brush or your fingers. Fingers are the best options as it can be a bit runny so blending it with a brush takes a bit longer. I usually set it with a matte powder or eye shadow as that way it lasts a bit longer. I didn't really notice my eye shadows becoming brighter, it actually stayed the same. If you are lighter in skin tone then I would say that it will cover any discolouration on the eye lids as well and double up as a concealer.
Overall for £2.50 you cannot really complain at to how it performs. I would say as a budget friendly primer it was relatively good and the best if to use it when you will be indoors mostly if you have oily lids but if you don't then it should really be an issue. If you are curious like me to see how it works, as the results will be different for each person then give it ago as it wont break the bank at £2.50.
