Honest reviews


Excellent product, if you use the right amount

I have used eye primer before that worked great, but I have not been able to find it. I saw this and thought I’d give it a try. I live in Arizona with temps in the triple digits, so going outside does not help the eyshadow staying put.That being said, I used the tiniest amount, and I saw no difference. Now, I use maybe a line that is about a quarter of an inch and everything stays put perfectly. My other product literally took a dot on each eye and worked. It could be that I am trying this product in the worst month. I am happy with it. A small amount, about 1/4 inch line is perfect for both eyes. I will definitely buy again.

I love this eyeshadow primer. I’ve always had problems making my make up last and with this primer my eyeshadow lasts all day without dulling or creasing. Highly recommended!

Works well but stings

As a primer, this product works very well. My shadow lasted without creasing and with only slight fading after a full day of wear. However, it burns my eyes and eyelids, which are not particularly sensitive to irritants. After I wash the primer off my skin is fine, but while it’s on a constant mild burning sensation rims my eyes punctuated by stinging in my actual eye every so often. I tried wearing the primer without any shadow to make sure nothing else was causing the irritation, and the burning persisted. There’s a saying that beauty knows no pain, but there must be a better product out there.

Works just as well as the UDPP but I love the packaging soo much better. The UDPP is soo annoying to get out of the bottle but this one is a squeeze tube and cheaper then UDPP as well!! Will be purchasing again.

I love this eye primer! It is the best one I have compared to MAC and NYX. My eyeshadow lasts all day. I will purchase another one in the future.

Very good primer.

I have oily skin and oily lids so most eyeshadow primers(like Too Faced,NYX HD and Mary Kay)crease after a few hours or just dont work at all.I bought this primer cause UD primer is too expensive and hard for me to get since i dont live in the states,i have to say i had my doubts,but after reading what other people thought of it,i took a change and got it and i was not dissapointed ITS A VERY GOOD EYESHADOW PRIMER and i can say after using it for more that a week that IS ALMOST AS GOOD AS UD PRIMER. I live in the caribbean and here is very hot and humid all the time,after using this Coastal Scent Matte primer my eyeshadows stay all day,dont crease and my eyeshadows looks like i just did my makeup.Very happy with the product,totally recommend it.

Worth the money

Great packaging and a little goes a long way. I’m glad I bought this over UDPP and other brands.I could see myself using this small tube for at least a year -well worth the money.

Kind of Weird

First time using this primer. It’s just ok. Not 5 stars, It dries weird causing the eyeshadow on top to look weird after applied. Not drastically noticeable but I notice it. I am used to gliding on eye shadow smoothly after primer application and it looking richer. .

Not bad at all

For my money, this is a very affordable, effective primer. I understand that not everyone likes primers that are slightly oily (which this one unquestionably is) but I’ve found some other primers to be too dry to be at all effective. At the very least, Coastal Scent’s primer really helps their own brand of eye shadow to really pop. Basically, it’s a good buy that does exactly what you’re purchasing it to do.Grade: B

Shadow Worx AWESOME!!!

So I recently ordered this. Let me just say that I have never used a eyeshadow primer. I have oily eyelids so the eyeshadow I’d use would never stay on for very long. I would do my eyes in the morning before work and by the time it was time to go home, my eyeshadow was practically gone or runny and creasing. So I decided to give this a try. Let me tell u this actually works!! I’ve used it for 3 days now. I put it on in the morning with my Coastal Scents 88 Warm eyeshadow palette which I also bought at the same time and the eyeshadow looks fresh all day until I shower in the evening. Thats a long time!! I will def continue to use this and it has a great price. I will be back for more when this tube runs out.

I love this product! I have no complaints, i love the packaging, the way how it goes on so smoothly(at first try i thought it was too slippery, but by the time you apply to the other eye it dries!)It last allll day and a very little goes a lonnng way!! I think ppl confuse this as a base for eyeshadow, but it’s just a primer to keep your product on longer. I use it alone on me and my clients when i am just using a daytime look, or more neutral colors and thats fine. When i want a more pop of colour, i use a white base over it. Its almost a year and i still have the same tube and its only half way. Just ordered another. LOVESSSS IT!!!!!!

Nice matte primer

Happy I tried this. No creasing. Color stays fresh and put. Great product for your money. Will purchase again when needed. Fortunately, this seems to last a while since you need very little each application. All very good.

My holy grail eye primer

I’ve had this baby for over a year and I’m only 1/2 way through. I have oily lids and this helps keep them matte even with eyeshadow. As a primer, it works absolutely perfect. My eyeshadow lasts all day without smudging, fading or creasing. The last time I wore eyeshadow without primer (because I was rushing and totally forgot), the eyeshadow didn’t even last for more than an hour. I don’t know how I survived without primer before. The consistency is smooth and creamy and easy to work with. I love this product. It’s my holy grail eye primer.
