A year and a half after the whole Lilly Pulitzer for Estee Lauder collection, I am still going through all of my spoils of war. Now, call me neurotic and OCD, but I have this thing about only using one makeup item at a time (with the exception of eye shadows, lipstick, and foundation). I can only have one minor item open at a time. Like, only one tube of mascara, only one eyeliner, etc.
Another minor item I can only have one of is eyeshadow primer. I have currently been loving the Estee Lauder eyeshadow primer. Unlike the Urban Decay or ELF primers, this one comes in a little pot and I dab it on with my fingers. For my oily eyelids, I just need a smidge more sticking power in my shadow game. If I am not having a particularly stressful day, it holds pretty well. I guess I could try lathering it on pretty thick to see if that helps or becomes cakey, but we’ll find out. For now, it gets the job done, but if I am going to pay the price for it, it better do more work than the $1 ELF primer. Just saying.
