Calling all Make Up For Ever fans, primer aficiandos and women who suffer from eye makeup fading and creasing: Make Up For Ever Eye Prime is coming your way this June! You might be thinking, as I was at first glance, doesn’t Make Up For Ever already have an eye primer? No, wait, it’ s that you hardly need one when you use their eye makeup because it’s budgeproof already. True, you hardly need a primer with the Aqua Creams and the Aqua Eyes liners because they are top notch in the “stay all day” category. But, any makeup artist will tell you that a primer is a crucial step in makeup prep. Heck, we will tell you that as well.
MUFE Eye Prime is formulated with a mix of waxes and polymers and, in addition to making shadows budgeproof, also helps intensify their colors. The primer itself is a nude pink color that blends in clear and with a special brightening effect. The doe foot wand packaging is useful and reminiscent of another eye primer we like very much, NARS Smudgeproof. At $22, Make Up For Ever Eye Prime is a few bucks cheaper than the NARS. While still a pretty penny to shell out, we consider eye primer to be like the preventative medicine of makeup. If you’re diligent, there are less problems (smudging) down the road (at the end of the day).
Also, you may notice another new (but available now at Sephora!) product in our photo: Make Up For Ever Aqua Shadow! More thoughts to come on those. But early testing is indicating another home run for MUFE and its family of Aqua products.
