REVIEW: Barbara Daly Make Up Even-Smoother Eyeshadow Primer/Base


Barbara Daly Make Up Even-Smoother Eyeshadow Base - £5, Tesco


I recently went for a wonder round Tesco and I found myself at the make up stand part down the toiletries aisle, as I normaly do, I can't stay away!

I usually browse the Rimmel section as it's a familiar brand but this time found myself browsing the Barbara Daly stand. The packaging for all of the products is very sophisticated consisting of simple all black packaging and white writing and the majority of the products. I only have 1 nail varnish from this range and have never come across or searched for any reviews so I really did pick this item up on a complete whim!

The item I picked up as you can guess from the pictures and the title is an eyeshadow base/light concealer kind of like MAC painterly/soft ochre paint pots in terms of the idea, cream base that covers/conceals veins etc and helps the blendability and colouration of the eyeshadow. Another great aspect of this product is that it also prolongs the life of your shadows! Everyone loves a shadow that stays on all day/until they want it to, without fading right? Well, this is what this product is for!

I love this product, I put it over my foundations/powder and under my eyeshadow and it keeps my shadows on for a considerably longer amount of time that they usually stay on. I also have the Rimmel Exaggerate Undercover Eyeshadow Primer which is also brilliant but it's white so it doesn't match my lids where as this product does. You can also use this product as a light concealer for fine lines and dark circles. I used it and even though it didn't settle into fine lines at first, after about an hour or two it started to and it started to fade so maybe my dark circles are just too dark, *sigh*

However, it's main aims of evening the lids, prolonging wear-ability and enhancing blendablity are definitely ones that this product achieves and for £5 I think it's a steal! I'll definitely repurchase this when mines gone!

What do you think of this product? Have you tried it? Let me know!
