I recently picked up the Rimmel Exaggerate Undercover Shadow Primer at my local drugstore because it was on sale. I was curious to see if this would hold up to the test, as I usually have a problem with my eyeshadow creasing in the inner corners of my eyes.
This primer claims to:
- Maximize color and wear of your eye shadow color 4 hours up to 7 hours
- Instantly smoothes and preps lids
- Make your color smudge-proof
As you can see from the images, both eyes have creased quite substantially, as do most shimmery eyeshadows I use. In comparison to both eyes, it seems the eye with no primer actually held up better than the one with the Rimmel Exaggerate Undercover Shadow Primer. Coincidence? I’m thinking no.
Overall, I would skip this primer altogether. It didn’t do much for the color payoff or longevity of my eyeshadow. The creasing that happened was much worse than with no primer at all, and I just felt like a hotmess at the end of the day. Have you tried this primer and had better results?
