After purchasing my 4th tube of Too Faced Shadow Insurance, it occurred to me that this is an absolutely essential product in my makeup routine- yet I haven’t really done a proper post on it yet.
I use Too Faced Shadow Insurance (pretty much exclusively) to prime my oily eyelids for makeup. It works really well to prevent creasing, fading, and shifting of both cream and powder eye makeup during the day.
In the past I’ve used NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Primer, Urban Decay Primer Potion, MAC Painterly Paint Pot, Lime Crime Candy Eyed Eyeshadow Primer – I find that TFSI has a better surface for blending matte shadows compared with UDPP and Lime Crime, and locks down colour for longer compared with Painterly Paint Pot and the NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Primer. As an aside- I will never deal with Lime Crime again after hearing about the way they do business (google Lime Crime controversy).
Two Faced Shadow Insurance does not separate in the tube nearly as often as it did when I first I tried it 4 years ago (they must have improved the formula over the years) – but on the rare occasion when it does, all you need to do is massage the tube a little and it comes together again nicely.
