Rated 5 out of 5 by Jessleigh Perfect for amateurs
I am definitely not a MUA and when it comes to applying eyeshadow the outcome can be more of a disaster than a masterpiece. However I use this 'primer' alone as eyeshadow, it's creamy texture makes it so easy to apply and you can apply less for a subtle colour or more for a darker colour. I can now create a great eye without the hassle
Rated 5 out of 5 by MarBurck Love this primer
I have tried other brands of primer, none work as well. I've tried the neutral primer and 4 of the primer shadows and I love them all. Didn't have too much trouble when I got to the bottom of the tubes. I guess I just squeezed really hard from the bottom like you do with the toothpaste. But if there were a way to come up with a better design...
Rated 1 out of 5 by Peridot Clumpy and hard to apply
Agree with many of the other reviews, the product is very hard to get out of the tube, feels like the tube is empty even when first opened. Once you squeeze it out, it's dry and clumpy, have to spread it on fingers first, and most of it then stays on the fingers, without transferring to the eyelids when applying, very difficult to get an even finish. If and when you get it on, it does the job as a primer when I apply shadow and liner over it, it has stayed in place with a nice shimmery finish. I brought the sundance which is a nice tone to blend with other colours.

The primer shadow is great.....so quick and easy to use. It glides on easily and can easily be blended in before it sets. Doesn't feel drying or cakey on the skin and has great coverage on the eyelid. I have a few of these colours and use them for a quick on the go look.
Rated 3 out of 5 by JoanieKarin Love the idea and the color - but disappointed
I gave this a 3 out of 5 because I absolutely love the violet color and the two other colors I purchased; however, the first batch of all 3 colors literally felt like the tubes were empty. I called Bare Minerals and learned that there was a bad batch of this product, and they immediately sent me replacements. The replacements were not much better in terms of ease of use, but overall, I love the colors so much that I'm going to continue to use them. Hopefully the packaging will be improved.
Rated 1 out of 5 by MyB145 what a waste
i love the original eye primer, so i gave this a try in the gunmetal. after two hours i walked by the mirror and i looked like a melted Tammy Fae Bakker. Good thing i gave this a trial run at home before i wore it in public.
this is the 3rd new product i have bought in the past 6 months and all have been duds. gonna stop wasting my money and just stick to the original basics.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quantum Primer Shadow
This is the best stuff ever! I use it all the time. If I am in a rush I use it by itself. I have used two different primer colours together on my lid. PLEASE do not stop making this product. I also use the Brightening Primer but I just LOVE the colored Primers/Primer Shadow. The Chrome Purple is a fantastic color. The Sundance is very pretty. The Bronzed Twig is a great colour. The Sandalwood is another one that is great to use by itself. I personally have never had problems with application. The product is thick and dries quickly. It can stand alone or use it with your Shadows. KEEP IT PLEASE! :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by andreamy Does what it says!!
I have the Bronze, Chroma Violet and the Prime Time Eyelid Primer and I love them all. I am loving the no crease at the end of the day. Before all my eyeshadow ended up in the crease or just disappeared. I applied it at 9am and at 11pm I still have all the shades on and looking great. All three have different components - the Bronze is a great shimmer on my eye - can wear without anything else. The Chroma is a pretty purple that I can wear alone or layer with other colors. The Prime time evens out my lid tone and is a great base for any color.
Rated 3 out of 5 by MemoryRevenge Stays on if you can get it out
Got some as a gift and then bought another tube in a different color since it was on sale. The color lasts and stays but after a few uses it's hard to get out of the tube.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fibrogurl My eyeshadow wouldnt show up with out this!
Sounds odd to say but i would put on my BM eye shadow and 15mins later no matter what color i had on it disappeared. So finally i went into the shop and showed them my eyes after an application. I tried on the primer in "pearl" and then added my shadow on top of it and it looked gorgeous. I can actually see the colors and they stay on. I never had an issue with caking or creasing. This stuff is magic!
