Honest reviews, regular hauls and all things beauty.

Success at last with By Terry Ombre Blackstar!





By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Misty Rock is a product that was on my wishlist for quite a while and when I initially tried it, I was so disappointed to find that it creased and slid on my eyelids really quickly. I posted about it here.  I asked for advice from other oily-lidded ladies and tried a lot of the tips given but it still wasn't working for me. Because it cost over €40, I wasn't going to be defeated quite so easily so kept searching for possible solutions and recently hit upon the perfect product to use with it. 


A few weeks ago, I bought Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer even though I hadn't actually heard much about it. At €19, it is less expensive than the Nars primer that I normally use, so I just thought I would give it a go. The product itself is flesh coloured and it really evens out my eyelids to create the perfect base. It feels less tacky on the skin than the Nars primer and dries to an almost powdery finish, which is perfect if you have oily eyelids like I do (despite having really dry skin!). I had a good feeling about this product as soon as I applied it and when I applied Misty Rock, I could see that it was "locked in" very quickly and it simply does not budge when I use this primer. I had the products on for 8 hours last week and the shadow stick literally did not crease or slide at all! Amazing! What a contrast to when I wore it with my Nars primer & also the famous Urban Decay Primer Potion. I cannot recommend this primer enough to anybody who struggles with their shadow sliding or creasing. It is comfortable to wear and does its job perfectly. It gets a huge 10/10 from me!

Now that I know it works, I have my eye on Bronze Moon!

What cream shadows would you recommend now that I have a solution to my oily eyelids?
