What I Am Loving Right Now: Too Faced Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer

Hey loves!

Just in case you do not know this yet, my favorite makeup are eyes shadows. I love mixing colors and I think that among all the places you apply makeup, the eye part is where you can be most creative. That being said, I also appreciate a really good eye shadow primer. I've tried a number of primers now and one of those that I really fell in-love with is...

Too Faced Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer

The one I have is a mini size which is included in my Too Faced Beauty Blogger Darlings Set which I bought at Sephora last June.

So let's get to know the product first from the labels and from the website:

A featherweight primer that creates a perfect canvas for cream and powder shadows. Eye shadows are intensified, crease-proofed and ready for action for 24+ hours; because you never know how long the night will last.

  • 24-hour Wear
  • Waterproof
  • Crease-Proof, Fade-Proof
  • Colorless Formula

(+/-): Bismuth Oxychloride (CI 77163), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499).

I love Too Faced's product packagings. The tube is easy to squeeze and you can control the amount of product you want to get with ease. I think the regular size one is made of the same material.

So here's the product.

It's has a milky-beige color that is very creamy but non-sticky. 

When spread-out, the product blends with the skin. So yeah, I do think the colorless factor is true.

Below is how this eye primer performs. I used an eye shadow from my Make Up For Ever Technicolor Palette.

Left: Without primer
Right: With primer

The eyeshadow is very pigmented on its own but it really intensified when I have a primer underneath.

And when thoroughly smudged, the one with primer held the eyeshadow in place. It still looks vibrant! Impressive, right?

What is more awesome is that this really prevents my eye makeup from creasing all day even if I have extremely oily skin. That rarely happens and I've only found a handful of eye makeup primers who can do that and this one definitely is one of them! This primer really delivers all its promises.

I strongly recommend this product especially if you love doing eye makeup like me. Whether you have oily lids or just love vibrant colors around your eyes, you should definitely check this out!



  1. Nice. The primer impressed me so much. The eyeshadow stayed as if it wasn't even smudged.

    1. It is really impressive. I super love it!

  2. That's a pretty good performing primer! I would like to try it to see how it stacks against my current HG, Artdeco.

    1. I've tried Artdeco. Although I do like it too, this one just feels lighter and easier to spread. :D

  3. Awesomeeee smudge test. I haven't tried a lot of primers yet but I do have one from Urban Decay :P

    1. I think pantay sila ng UD when it comes to lasting power and making the shadows look brighter and bolder. But this one feels lighter for me.
