About: "The prep tool that every makeup-loving gal should own, our luxurious silky-soft formula (which excludes parabens!) will challenge even the pros! Apply just a bit of this to eyelids before applying makeup and you'll see more vibrant, longer-lasting eyeshadow with NO creasing! It takes just a small amount. Blend well until eyelids feel satiny and then apply eyeshadow as normal!"

Review: This product is fantastic. Just a little dab of Electric Eye Primer will cover both eyes. (Be careful not to overdo it!) It’s fairly transparent, with just a bit of a golden sheen to it. Concrete Minerals' primer feels really smooth, and performs just as well Urban Decay Primer Potion, or Too Faced Shadow Insurance--I did side by side comparisons, and found them to be equal in terms of enhancing color and preventing creasing. And the Electric Eye Primer is roughly half the price for the same amount of product! Many of the ingredients are similar, but I like that the Electric Eye Primer has fewer ingredients. You can use the Concrete Minerals Primer with any type of eyeshadow, even regular pressed eyeshadow.
-Makes eyeshadow more vibrant
-Went all day without creasing
-Some people don’t like sticking their fingers into their products, but since I always apply my eyeshadow primer to a clean face with clean hands, it’s not really an issue for me.
