MUA Professional Eye Primer

MUA Professional Eye Primer £2.50

This little product spurred my MUA haul a couple of months ago after seeing Kat's raving review about it. I didn't even know eye primers existed until this so that was a nice surprise and I thought, for the price, I couldn't not try it!

I'm actually a tad disappointed I have to say. It just didn't live up to expectations for me.

It was really easy to apply, you just pop it on your lids and blend over. It's applying products on top that I have a bit of a problem with. I just find that it's really hard to pop eyeshadow on top and really hard to blend it.

Otherwise, it's great. The colours of the eyeshadow seem more vibrant when (eventually) applied on top of the primer, and it does last longer then without it. But I just couldn't get along with putting eyeshadow on top of it, it just seemed like a battle I could do without.

Pop eyeliner over the top of it though and it's perfect - it's great for that and I have no trouble applying any type of eyeliner on top of this, so I've been using it for days where I feel eyeliner is enough and I don't feel like using eyeshadows.

For the price however, I do think it is great value for money. It's lasted for ages, and like I said, it does increase stay and vitality. It's just the eyeshadow bit. Sorry MUA!

What eye primers do you recommend? 


  1. I just recently bought my first primer from mac, to be honest, I really don't see any difference, beside that it is a little shimmery..

  2. I just bought my first ever MUA products and I'm so pleased with them! I ended up browsing their site after reading your review of the Mua Heaven & Earth palette. In the end I went for the Undressed palette, gel liner, english rose mosaic blush and the new constellations nail beads. I can't believe how good the products are for the price!
