Primer Competition Series Overview

So I'll admit it, I'm a bit of an eye primer junkie. I think right now I've got 5 in rotation, Urban Decay Primer Potion, NYX Eyeshadow Base in Nude AND White, Benefit Stay Don't Stray and Kat Von D High Voltage Eye Primer in Skin.

I have seen a lot of posts that compare how well it works with eyeshadow in terms of vibrancy (see Phyrra's awesome comprehensive post where she compares 10) but I really wanted to see it done for weartime.

So I want to start a mini-series comparing the primers and ranking them in lasting power from best to worst. I'm also going to compare them to each other e.g Urban Decay versus NYX, Benefit, and Kat Von D and then NYX with Benefit, Kat Von D, etc. I think in all that's 10 comparisons?

This is certainly going to be a challenge, but luckily I don't start school until the 24th! Some of my lucky friends start school tomorrow so if you're one of those people have a good day at school!

It's raining now where I live ;( Southern California normally has two kinds of weather, fire and normal. It's strange to be constantly having rain and coldness. I'm rather spoiled like that, I think anything under 70 degrees is cold. I've certainly visited colder places in the world and I've been around snow but I don't think vacation counts haha


  1. This should be interesting! Can't wait to see which primers you like best!

  2. looking forward to read your comparisons!

  3. You mentioned all the primer I wanna try out one day XD! But I can't wait to see how well they all work for you and then decide which one to get!

  4. Excited for this! I always love primer comparisons because there are just so many, no one can really cover every type by themselves. And besides the UDPP I haven't seen reviews for any of these!
