The answer to this age-old beauty annoyance? Eyeshadow primer. These powerful potions are designed to create a barrier between the oils on your lids and your eyeshadow of choice, allowing the color to adhere properly and last much longer.
To learn whether these products truly make a difference, we rounded up four of our lovely colleagues and assigned them each a primer to wear all day. All four girls applied a primer, topped it with the same drugstore shadow (the charcoal shade of the L'Oréal Color Riche Eyeshadow Quad in Cookies & Cream), and we shot them in the morning and again in afternoon to see how their color wore throughout the day.
Check out how each product did, and then let us know — would you consider adding a primer to your makeup routine?
