My continuous search for a primer!

As you, my readers [hi readers!!], know--vegan eyelid primers are a hard hard thing to come by. I have tried SoBe's Primed and Proper (with relatively good results) as well as The All Natural Face's Eyeshadow Primer (both in Buff and in Black--the Black really works well as a base, but I don't find it works as well as a primer. The Buff works, but I definitely get creasing after a few hours).

My next foray into the land of vegan primers is going to take me to Evil Shades Cosmetics's Evileyes Primer. The explanation of the texture makes me weary, but also intrigued. I was also weary of The All Natural Face's packaging and the fact that their product comes in a pot--but the pot part of the whole thing hasn't turned me off yet. I'm optimistic that this "mousse" texture in Evil Shades's primer will be different in a good way. My fingers are seriously crossed.

Have any of you had any experience with the Evil Shades primer? If so, I'd love love love to hear about it.

This blog definitely doesn't have a good review of it. But in contradiction, this review is favorable.

So I figure it's best to try it out for myself, yes? :)


  1. I love the Evil Shades primer! I usually use UDPP but Evil Shades primer works very well. Another one that I would recommend is High Voltage's Amplified Eye primer. It's essentially the same thing. I don't know if it's vegan though!

  2. Thank you for the comment, Kimberly!! I will look into High Voltage's primer. :)
