Happy Saturday ladies! I need your help in deciding next week’s blog theme. Please head on over to our Facebook page and vote now. If there are no votes, I’ll be going on a blog break next week 😛
Anyway, I was clearing out my blog drafts and came across this review I did on NP Set Eye Primer AGES ago which I haven’t posted up yet. The photos and writing aren’t great but instead of binning it, hopefully it will be helpful for those looking for a review of NP Set Eye Primer. – 14/7/12
Last year (I wrote this in October 2011), I went into a mad last minute make-up haul frenzy as I frantically searched around for cosmetics for my wedding. To save money, I did my own wedding make-up with a helping hand from my sister. If you have oily lids like me, you must use an eye primer. It acts a base for eye make-up to maximise pigmentation of eyeshadows and to prevent smudging and creasing of make-up.
I had run out of my HG eye primer (which is Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer – a Korean brand which is impossible to find anywhere!) and with no Urban Decay in Australia, I went hunting in David Jones. I went to the Lancome counter as Michelle Phan had been banging on about a Lancome primer she uses, but they had nada. The sales assistant pointed me in the direction of NP Set and without even testing it, I purchased NP Set Eye Primer.
NP Set Eye Primer maximises the lustre and longevity of eyeshadow. The primer contains jojoba, rosehip and sunflower oils and is paraben and sulphate free. It also keeps the delicate eye area nourished and protected from inflammation.
NP Set Eye Primer comes in a small tube which is great as it is hygienic and doesn’t dry out easily compared to the bottled versions of eye primers. The texture is smooth and blends out relatively easy on eyelids and is easy to remove at the end of the night.
It does intensify eyeshadows, but the performance of NP Set Eye Primer is disappointing. My eyeshadows crease after a maximum of 4-5 hours usage – which is okay if you’re planning to wear make-up for a short event, but not suitable if you need your make-up to last all day long.
I am el cheapo which means that unless I really, really, REALLY dislike a product, I will use it till it runs out. I don’t dislike NP Set Eye Primer because I still use it from time to time and it still hasn’t run out after a year’s usage…but what I’m trying to say is that it didn’t light my fire, so I won’t be repurchasing it.
If you read to the end, I salute you! I seriously cringe at the awful photos I used to post up on my blog! 😛
