Today I'm reviewing Wet N' Wild's first eyeshadow primer, which is part of the new Fergie Collection. I wasn't too interested in this primer when I first saw it, so I actually didn't buy it until about two weeks after I first saw it. I regret not buying it sooner, because the display had $1 off coupons, when I finally bought it the coupons were gone. But it's still worth the $4.99 I paid for it.
First lets talk about the packaging, I don't really care for the Fergie Collection packaging. The colors just seem cheap to me. I am glad that it is a squeeze tube though, so much product is wasted with primers that have those doe foot applicators.
When you first squeeze it out of the tube it comes out a nude color, and feels a bit like the Smashbox Photo Finish primer, but more watery. Once you blend it out it is pretty much invisible. If you use this make sure you let it dry first, or it's kind of icky. As you can see in the picture above it looks a bit wet once blended, but if you let that dry you should have no problem.
I tested out the primer with Wet N' Wild eyeshadows. The results are pretty noticeable. I was so surprised to see the big of a difference with the black eyeshadow. I know there's a big pigmentation difference between matte and shimmer eyeshadows, especially with Wet N' Wild. So I used the primer with the Drinking a Glass of Shine pallete. Swatches are below.
I forgot to swatch these eyeshadows without the primer, but I can guarantee you that there would definitely be a huge difference. This palette is pretty awesome, but as far as pigmentation goes, not so much. I'm so glad Wet N' Wild has finally come out with an affordable primer, and even happier to see that it works so good with their eyeshadows. Other than it being a little runny I have no complaints with this primer, and at $4.99 it is a definite steal. If you see this at your local drugstore I highly suggest you pick it up!
