Lorac Behind the Scenes Eye Primer Review, Swatches, Demo: Hey there pretty lady! Hope you’re having a fantastic day! Today will be telling you about the Lorac Eyeshadow primer. Now let me tell you, I have super-duper oily skin, which means my eye lids are constantly slick and slimy. Ew I know! So far I’m always on the lookout to find products that actually help make up stay and not go anywhere. It’s the most difficult thing in the world perhaps. I’ve tried a lot of the cult brands that everyone seems to swear by and each time I’m left disappointed. I think my eyelids just laugh at me now! Don’t know why I bother. So when I got this primer, I didn’t have really high hopes either. Read on to see how it turned out!

In Detail Lorac Behind the Scenes Eye Primer Review, Swatches, Demo and My Experience

So I got this primer when I bought the Lorac Pro 2 palette. I really didn’t know what to expect as I hadn’t read up about it. Usually I research and research and research before buying anything. Online shopping can be super tricky and deceptive! So I went into this blind.

I must say I was quite impressed! This primer worked out quite decently for me. Better than a lot of other really popular primers. My only issue is that there is no color in it. It’s completely transparent so blends into the skin. I like my primers to have a bit of coverage. But it performs well so I can look past some small details!

That being said, it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t crease at all! It just takes longer to crease then other primers on my eyes. The key is to use a little bit. Too much primer always means creasing. So I think this primer is a winner in my book!

Lasted decently with minimal creasing! Color is mostly faded because I accidentally rubbed my eye twice.

Lorac Behind the Scenes Eye Primer Review

I find that I actually quite enjoy this primer. I’m really glad I got it with the palette so it gave me a chance to try it out. If you have hopelessly oily eyelids like mine, I would recommend giving this a try! It has amazing lasting power. I will have to further test it in the hotter months though!

Hope this review was helpful! Feel free to ask any further questions. Have you tried this product? Let me know your thoughts!

Have a great day beautiful <3

    I don’t think I heard anybody else talk about this primer before, but what caught my eye is how much brighter it made the eyeshadow swatch on your arm compared to swatching without a primer under!
    I don’t have oily eyelids and I forget to use an eyeshadow primer 90% of the time but if I ever come across this one at least I’ll know it’s not bad 😀
