George Eye Shadow Primer
Advantages: looks like it might have a nice consistency (but it doesn't)
Disadvantages: terrible primer, flakes off, has to be removed, doesn't do anything, total rip-off
I bought this eye primer ages ago as an impulse buy in Asda. It was only £3 and I thought it might be worth a shot because if it was good then I'd save myself a lot of money buying one so cheaply.
The primer comes in a white pearlescent plastic tube. I would liken it to a concealer tube as it has a soft plastic body which squeezes easily and then a hard plastic twist on lid. Instead of the brush you would get with a concealer this product has a little nib with an application hole through which the product can be squeezed. The design is fine, it works in the way it should but it isn't in the least bit exciting. I bought it because it was cheap and none of my decision making was about how it looked, because it is pretty boring in terms of design - but if the product works then what does it matter?
The primer is a light fleshy colour and is relatively thick in consistency. It actually has quite a rich feel to it when initially squeezed out of the tube and I had high hopes for it because it seemed better quality than I had expected. I use this product around my eyes, under and on my eyelid to smooth the area and hide dark circles. I used a small amount and rubbed it in this area but the primer forms in globules of the product which don't probably sink in and instead need to be wept off your face. Essentially it not only does not do what it proposes to do but it also is a complete inconvenience as it has to be cleaned off almost as soon as it has been applied.
I almost think more fool me for buying something that was so cheap in the hope it might be great. But at the very least I expected a product that worked to some degree and what I actually got was something that caused more problems than it solved. It seems mad to me that they can put these products through testing and sell them in store when they simply are worse than rubbish. Oh well, I only paid £3 for it so I guess I'll save my money next time and completely avoid this cheap and not at all cheerful range!
Do not buy this primer, it is awful.
Summary: Terrible product - if I could give it no stars I would.
