Review: Etude House Proof 10 Eyelid Primer

As promised, here's the last of the eyelid primer series, featuring the Etude House Proof 10 Eyelid Primer.

The Etude House Proof 10 Eyelid Primer comes in a cute little bottle (the bottle is really pretty small) - it's like the shape of a really chesty but slim-waisted lady hehe. The long cap twists out into a doe-foot applicator, as is standard with most eyelid primer applicators (except for UDPP and TFSI's squeeze tubes).

Got this for about $11 off Qoo10 a long time ago and boy, do I think it's worth every penny!

It's skin colour, and almost completely sheer once blended in. It feels slightly slippery. I would say it's less tacky than UDPP and less slippery than TFSI, if that's any indication. The texture is probably closer to e.l.f. Mineral Eyeshadow Primer.

Proceeding with the swatches!

Left: Without primer, Right: With primer.
Damn, I had bad taste and chose three shades which do not complement each other at all. Lol.

From top to bottom - Dragonfly, Strike (both from Sleek MakeUP i-Divine Ultra Matte V1), Spice from Make Up Store.

You can tell how the colours on the primer pop a lot more, and appear less chalky.

That is me with an array of colours from Urban Decay Naked Palette.

Face Primer: POPBeauty Face Magnet
Foundation: MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
Eyeshadow Primer: Etude House Proof 10 Eyelid Primer
Base: Sidecar (from Urban Decay Naked Palette)
Lid: Buck (from UD Naked Palette)
Contour: Smog (from UD Naked Palette)
Outer V: Darkhorse (from UD Naked Palette)
Eyeliner: Clio Kill Black Pen Liner
Mascara: Eyeko Skinny Brush Mascara
Blusher: Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Hussy

Generally, browns are not colours that really stand out but I like how on Proof 10, they stand a chance on the eyelids, even in our hot, humid Singapore weather...

...because whaddya know, after 15 long hours, my eyeshadow was intact and actually looked almost as good as freshly applied! No fading, no creasing, no smudging and certainly no transfer.

Almost fresh-faced after 15 hours! Super duper happy and loving the Etude House Proof 10 Eyelid Primer.

If there's one budget eyelid primer you must buy, this is the Holy Grail of all budget eyelid primers. It gives UDPP and TFSI a run for their money, and these people at MakeupAlley certainly think so too. For its price, I daresay this is even better than those highly-raved about items!

You really should pick up this primer because it's just so worth it! I've also just purchased the Etude House CC Cream and hope to do a review on that soon as well!
