Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer Review
Hello Dreamers and Creators!
Today I'll be reviewing Etude House's Proof 10 Eye Primer. I'm always on the look out for a wonderful eye primer that's not going to break my bank. Since I have semi-oily lids, I need a long lasting eye primer that will keep my eyeshadow in place without creasing or smudging. I've tried Too Faced's Shadow Insurance which I didn't really like and Urban Decay's Primer Potion (the old formula) which I liked. However, I wanted to branch out and try other eye primers, especially if they are going to help me save money. That's when I came across the Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer and fell in love with it. Keep on reading to see why this eye primer is more than worth your time and money!

Use the primer wand to dab a small amount of the eye primer onto eye lids and gently spread the formula with your ring finger. Apply evenly.
Ingredients: TALC, ISODODECANE, VP/HEXADECENE COPOLYMER, MICA, TRIMETHYLSILOXYSILICATE, CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, DISTEARDIMONIUM HECTORITE TRIHYDROXYSTEARIN, SILICA DIMETHYL SILYLATE, TITANIUM DIOXIDE, SORBITAN SESQUIOLEATE, PEG-40 STEARATE, BEESWAX, PROPYLENE CARBONATE, DIMETHICONE, CYCLOHEXASILOXANE, METHICONE, BHT, PROPYLPARABEN, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499
My Thoughts: At $5.5 this primer is more than worth it. It doesn't even feel like a splurge, more like you've gotten the best deal on Earth or something. When I first purchased Etude House's Proof 10 Eye Primer I had doubts. I thought there must be something I am not going to like about this primer since it is so cheap. However, after using it for the past 3 month I can honestly say there's nothing I don't like about this product. Instead, I love it. It is just as good as my Urban Decay eye primer. Plus, it is much cheaper, which makes it even more worth it.
This eye primer comes in a simple eyeliner container that has a well like opening with a doe foot applicator. Personally, I think the packaging is perfect because the well like opening ensures that the right amount of product is taken out of the container and it catches any excess product as you are pulling the wand out. You can easily use to doe foot applicator to apply the primer onto your lids if you don't want to use your fingers as it does a pretty great job spreading the product. I like this packaging a lot more than the squeeze tube that the Too Faced eye primers comes in. Mainly because I can control how much products comes out at once a lot easier with the Etude House's Proof 10 Eye Primer than the squeeze tube eye primers.
The Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer's formula is a bit pearly looking. It is light and has a consistency that's just a bit thicker than condensed milk. It dries fairly quickly and a little goes a long way, so work fast and don't apply too much. Although it might look pearly when you first take the product out of the bottle, once blended in, it won't look as pearly at all. You can see that in the picture below. This eye primer does not seem to have any fragrance in it as well, or at least none that I could pick up. ( I didn't sniff it up close and personal or anything because I was afraid it would get on my nose.)
With this Proof 10 Eye Primer, my eye make can usually stay up to 10 to 12 hours without smudging. Which is impressive in my opinion because the primer is so cheap that you'd never expect it to work so well. To me, it would seem that the Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer works as well as my UD Primer Potion. However, it's got a plus that UD does not have and that is its low price tag!
My Rating: ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤
Final Thoughts: Would I buy this product again? Heck yes! It works amazing on my semi-oily eyelids and keeps my eye makeup on without smudging. It's price is awesome, I mean I can buy like 4 Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer for the price of 1 UD Primer Potion. It's effective, affordable, and travel friendly. Why would I want anything else to take its place?
