Review: Kat Von D High Voltage Eye Primer

HI gals!

Ya its MOnday! i would say near too missing but work is definitely not taking me away from this lovely blogsphere... Just a fast catch-up and whats going on recently, i had been hitting an rather frequent these days and silently finishing up products which i'm very proud of!

I had hitted pan on the bareVitamins Prime Time Eyelid Primer think a month ago, so i decided to try out my new buy thru Amy! I like Kat Von D, i mean i love her show, personality and of course her makeup line.
Even the packaging is so nice, with her signature stars!

Not forgetting the tube itself too!

A close up of the tube.
At the top of the cap, you can find her initial on it, the cap is made of a rubbery texture material. So i easily stain it with my fingerprints on as i put on my foundation using fingers.

This texture of this eyelid primer is richer as compare to the Bare Vitamins one i used.

The finishing of the primer on my hand.

Review:
I'm a sucker for packaging that's why i pick this up before going further for reviews. Now i had read both good and bad about this product, guess all items will have fair share of these comments. I personally feel that, this might not be the best eyelid primer but i would say its passable in holding them in place and maintain the blingness of the eyeshadow i'm wearing. As for creasing, i would say slight as i usually wear my full makeup for 10 hours & above for each day. So i notice that it creases at times... The texture is richer like a concealer, and has a mattifying finishes. This product only comes in one shade which i think might not suit darker skin due to the thickness of the formula. I might give this product a miss than re-purchase...

ANY recommendation for eyelid primer? or share with me the one you are using now.

  2. I'm totally a sucker for packaging too, but I have such trouble with eye primers that I'm particularly non-adventurous with them lol. I still layer UDPP and either MAC Painterly paint pot or Shu P Beige cream eyeshadow as my eyeshadow base. UDPP alone only keeps my shadow from creasing for about 5-6 hours and Painterly lasts 3ish, Shu P Beige can last 6 hours by itself with minimal creasing in the inner corner, but the combination of UDPP plus one of them lasts 9+ hrs easily for me. Except with NYX and UD Deluxe shadows where they fade and crease no matter what I try... =/

  3. LOL I always buy products for packaging too! Although now I'm trying to read reviews before buying, hehe. I've heard quite nasty things about the Kat Von D line, basically that it's repackaged Sephora stuff. But from your review, this one isn't actually too bad, esp if it holds up in Singapore weather. LOL.

  7. I haven't tried this primer yet, thanks for the review. I love Kat Von D, too bad not all her products can be perfect. I personally still love the bareMinerals Prime Time Eyelid Primer but when I ran out last month I switched to the Urban Decay Primer Potion. I don't know which one I like better.
