Too faced shadow insurance review

Although it isn't a product I use every day, I do value eye shadow primers very highly. When there is a special occasion or on days where I want to put a lot of effort into my eyes, they can make the world of difference. And after a long run of testing out different primers from various brands, I think I may have found my favourite primer so far from Too Faced. 

From what I can tell, the Too Faced Shadow Insurance seems to be somewhat of a cult product. It's not as widely known or praised as the Urban Decay or Nars offerings, but it does have a dedicated fanbase. Like the Urban Decay, it comes in  a number of shades. I went for the original, which doesn't have any pigment to it, but there is also a gold, champagne and glitter version if that tickles your pickle. 

My first impression of this primer is that it was very watery. I was slightly taken aback by this. In my experience primers are usually a little more tacky and thick. And when I applied to my lids it seemed to blend in and almost disappear quite easily which had me a little worried, but I didn't need to be. Apply shadow on top of it was a dream. My shadow adheres to it really well and it was incredibly simple to blend which I was very happy about. I also give it top marks for longevity and staving off creasing. I don't have the oiliest eyelids, but after a few hours I do tend to get some creasing and this seemed to stop that. My eyeshadow certainly looked better for longer and I felt like I didn't have to worry about it looking a mess.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance is definitely a hit in my eyes. In a perfect world, I'd love for Too Faced to add a matte skin coloured shade to the range to cover my pesky blue eyelids, but beggars can't be choosers. It pretty much ticks all of the primer boxes and I think it's a great little buy.
