A little while back, I was browsing the makeup section in TK Maxx (I love it in there, you can pick up some great beauty bargains!) when I came across this – I had been wanting to try out the primer on it’s own for quite a while, but I couldn’t pass up this full sized primer and eye shadow palette combined for less than the usual RRP of the primer itself! I think I picked it up for around £12?
The set comes with a full sized Shadow Insurance eye shadow primer and a palette with 6 of Too Faced’s most popular eye shadow shades.
The primer is said to ‘lock down glamour for hours of party-proof colour’; it prevents creasing and fading of eye shadow. I love this eye primer, it’s my favourite one at the moment – eye shadow looks vibrant and doesn’t fade, lasts for hours on end and yet it is still really easy to blend eye shadow over it. It doesn’t affect eye shadow blendability in any way which is one of my favourite things about this primer – some tend to make eye shadow stick and therefore you can’t blend it as you wish!
The eye shadows in the palette are fantastic – I genuinely wasn’t expecting too much from them, I wanted this set more for the primer than the eye shadows. However, I have taken quite a liking to them! They are amazingly pigmented and vibrant colours that wear just as you see them in the palette. The shades remind me of jewels, they are pearly and really pretty. They last really well too, especially with the Too Faced primer of course! The shades are actually really wearable, you can mix and match them and create new looks, but they look just as stunning on their own as they are so eye catching.
You can pick this set up for around £24 on sites such as Beauty Bay (here) and Amazon. Or, if you’re lucky enough, you can find one in TK Maxx like I did!
