Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not what I expected. I didn't find that this product stopped eye-shadow from creasing. I didn't find it gave eye-shadow blend ability. The creases in the skin around the eyes is exagerated, which is not what you would expect. I bought colour - 'wheat', it is very yellow, not an attractive look. The applicator is not easy to use, gives too much product. I have been using UD eye-shadow primer and will go back to forever, I have learned my lesson - find something good, stick to it!!! 17 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Make-up Bag Must Have I have, on more than one occasion, been let down by the longevity of my eye shadow. I either have to reapply during the day or the shadow begins to crease. I have tried many eye shadow primers and bases and they have all helped to some extent. I then found out about this eye base and after some research decided to try it. I was advised to try Flax as my shade, I’m fair skinned, but as far as application I was told it was so easy there was no tuition needed! And easy it was. With the application brush you simply sweep it over the lids and blend with your fingers. It has a luxurious texture and I found it looked fantastic on its own, brightening my eyes, giving a slight shimmer and helping me look more awake and fresh. Under eye shadow I no longer had to reapply and no more creases, far exceeding the performance of other products. With added vitamins it offers anti-inflammatory benefits and is gentle on the delicate skin. Believe the hype, it is more than justified and I look forward to trying more products in the Laura Mercier range. 05 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic product Feels lovely, easy to apply and does give a fresh look. Lasts absolutely forever as you don't need much product. 01 February 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! This is my second tube of eye primer from Laura Mercier, it is truly something I won't be without. I use it on days when I wear no other eye make-up (except for mascara) or underneath eye shadow. My make-up lasts all day when I use this. 16 January 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely product for holding eye shadow in place all day So glad you are now selling Laura Mercier online, saves a long trip into London 21 September 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by A must have product ! After reading a review for this on youtube had to see if it lived up to the hype ! I use this product every day over the eyelid area with or without eyeshadow. It makes a great base and makes the eye area look even and wide awake ! Wouldn't be without this now.
