Review: Avon Eyelid Primer

Eyelid primer is something I use most days. I find eye shadows crease on my lid if I don’t use one. I was using Urban Decay Primer Potion but wanted a cheaper alternative to it.

When I saw Avon had bought out an eyelid primer I knew I had to try it. The Avon eyelid primer currently comes in the shade light beige. It comes in a glass pot with a black lid. It’s a similar size to a gel liner. I like the simplicity of the pot but wish it was in something other than a pot. At the moment I use a brush to scoop it out when I’m wearing false nails. 


As you can see it’s well loved. I’ve been using it everyday since I got it. I can’t remember exactly when it was but I think it was around March time and I’ve still got over half left. The eyelid primer is a light texture that softly blends onto the eye. 


The neutral colour works really well on my eye and just evens out my eyelid and really prolongs my eye shadow wear and prevents creasing.



As you can see when it’s blended out it just looks perfect on the skin and provides a perfect base.


This photo shows the eye shadow after 14 hours wear. Colour is still on most of my eye and there is only a small amount of creasing. This is using the MUA palette. With my Naked 2 palette it lasts even better.

I’m so impressed with this eyelid primer and it’ll definitely be a repurchase for me. My make up lasts so much better and looks brighter with it. It also applies easier.

The primer can be bought for £7 here. As with most Avon products it’ll probably be on offer soon.

What’s your favourite eyelid primer? I’m glad I found a cheaper alternative.

Love M
