I popped into Sephora to buy myself a few birthday treats last weekend, and I picked up the new Stila Prime Pot in Taffy. The Prime Pot is one of the new spring releases that I haven’t seen anywhere else yet, so I was glad I was able to get one in my hot little hands. They come in two shades; Taffy is a pale pink-ish beige, and Caramel is a warmer beige.
The Prime Pot is an awesome matte eyeshadow primer that also disguises discoloration on the eyelids, while staying all day! It’s lightweight and very pigmented…so a little goes a long way. For best results, I recommend applying it with a small synthetic concealer brush instead of with your finger. Not only will you keep your product cleaner, you won’t waste it. I find this to be extremely crease resistant—it doesn’t let my eyeshadow pull a disappearing act, and it smooths out the texture of my lids. The past two days, I’ve worn it solo—without any shadow just because I love the natural buff shade it leaves behind, yet it still looks polished and makes my eyes appear brighter. This one gets the big thumbs up, and I’d definitely purchase it again.
