Majority of Filipina Skin is oily. Then add to our oiliness the heat and humidity and yet we wonder why our make-up do not last long. It melts, fades and slides of our faces. Now, our prayers have been answered by the birth of Primers. There are face, lip and the most important and most needed by women, the Eye Primer. We have been suffering from creased eye shadows and migrated eyeliners for far too long. And now that we are more aware of these products we now strive to find the perfect one for us. We have all coveted the cult-favorite Urban Decay Primer Potion or the Two-Faced Shadow Insurance due to their popularity but sadly these brands are not available locally and you have to try your luck with Online Multiply Stores or rely on pasalubongs just to have these elusive products. Thus my lust for eye primers was born. It's quite funny how I can feel my heart skip every time I browse racks of cosmetics and see the label, "Eyeshadow Primer".
My mom has extremely oily lids and eye shadows and liners ALWAYS crease on her so I bought her the E.L.F. Mineral Eyeshadow Primer. We have been fans of the E.L.F. Mineral Eyeshadow Primer but sadly I just chanced upon it on a multiply site and never got new stocks.
So the search continues for an eye shadow primer and we stumbled upon the Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer!
The texture is very creamy yet when blended, applies clear and matte. I like that the bottle is clear so that you can see how much product is left inside. I just don't know why they made the handle of the applicator so long.
So my verdict would be that this is an OK product. Not an OMG it's soooo Amaziiing!!! primer but it can help. But I think ladies with very oily lids would not find this great though since the oil control properties of this is not that great. But with the awesome price of ₱238 (I think.. I'll have to confirm first) for a 10 gram (0.35 oz.) bottle, go on and try it! It's cheap considering the amount of product.
Get it at an Etude House store near you! =D
