Too Faced Original Hero Product...

I recently was gifted the Too Faced Shadow Insurance to try and test. I've tried big brand primers before, including Smashbox and Dermalogica. I was doubtful as to how long this product would last, as other eye-shadow primers (and primers in general) have let me down after a couple of hours.
I put it to test for my sisters 30th birthday. First thought was it was a bit too wet for my liking and would probably crease my eye-shadow straight away. It's tinted, so I didn't need to apply a little bit of colour to my lids, like I usually would need to. The primer instantly dried onto my lids and I was able to apply my shadow straight away. I've been using a Revolution palette ever  since  I purchased it in London at the start of the year, and using it with the Two Faced Shadow Insurance really made the colours pop... like really. The colours blended really naturally also, which usually takes a good bit of blending to happen. 
I was rushed out the door at 8pm (so I never got to take a before picture), we had dinner and drinks in a crammed, roasting hot pub (the rugby was on so it was even more jam packed), and my eye-shadow lasted all night. I was very surprised, as big name brands haven't been as successful with me. I have extremely sensitive eyes, and the slightest breeze makes my eyes become a tap! I came home with perfect lids, and not a single crease or white patch. The rest of my face wasn't so lucky.

 Overall, I would definitely recommend this! At €20 it's a bit pricey, but if you want to ensure your eye make-up stays intact all night I would highly recommend you head down to your local stockist and pick this up. Now if I could find a primer that make the rest of my face last all night as well. 

Let me know if you have any recommendations for good primers or if you have tried the Two Faced Shadow Insurance...
