Product Spotlight: LORAC Behind The Scenes Eye Primer

Sometimes blogging can revolve around new releases or products sent to review, but I didn't want to forget those makeup gem's that I personally love and use every day. I'm not one to have new "favorites" every month. I tend to stick to my tried and true's for months, sometimes years, boring I know! but that's what I'd call a real favorite :) To break up the fotd's and reviews I wanted to share some "Product Spotlight's", just individual beauty items that I really really like. First up... LORAC Behind The Scenes Eye Shadow Primer

Created by Celebrity Makeup Artist Carol Shaw to be used behind the scenes on photo shoots and on the Red Carpet, this unique eye shadow primer easily glides on for crease-resistant, silky-smooth color that lasts. Eyeshadow Primer is essential for stopping creasing, eyeshadow longevity, and intensifying pigment. LORAC's BTS does it all. It's a lightweight creamy eyeshadow primer that goes on smooth and has a small amount of color correction to give your lids a fresh appearance and a smooth canvas to work on.

Both matte and shimmer eyeshadow's show up richer and stay put for a good 12 hours with this.The non-sticky satiny finish makes blending easy, you won't get those difficult patches of color grabbing. I previously was a devotee to Urban Decay Primer Potion and MAC Paint Pot's, but both of them started to irritate my eyes. BTS is free of many irritating ingredients like paraben's and fragrance and it works well on both dry and oily lids. They also get high marks for their hygienic squeeze tube applicator. My only advice is that a little goes a long way, if it's becoming cakey or creasey ease off the trigger :) A drop is plenty. If you're in the market for a new eyeshadow primer give Behind the Scenes a try, it may not get all the hype other brands do, but it certainly deserves it.

It also comes as a mini with the PRO Palette
