Eye Primers are an essential product and are important in keeping your eye shadows looking vibrant, long lasting and have them stay in place all day.  I have used most eye primers on the market from high end ones to drugstore priced ones and while I do love them all for different reasons, I’m pretty impressed with the price point and the quality of the Coastal Scents Step One Eye Primer.

Coastal Scents Step One Eye Primer

Coastal Scents Step One Eye Primer (10mL / 0.33 fl oz) retails on Coastal Scents’ website for $14.95 (currently on sale for $9.95) and comes in a very bright tube (Orange and Yellow) making it easy to find in your makeup stash.  This primer has a squeeze tube which makes it easy to use and I love that when you squeeze out the product, it is not oily or watery – allowing you to get out the perfect amount for each use.

There is a lot of product in one tube and even with daily use it will last you a long time.  The product is cream like, but on the dryer side – kind of reminding me of the consistency of Urban Decay’s Primer Potion.  The formulation applies like a cream but once blended onto the skin, it is nearly impossible to see on the skin – even with my skin tone.  Since it is neutral in shade, it will allow for vibrancy of any shadow and longevity.  This product has amazed me as my shadows are crease free and fade free for hours and I love that it is easy to use.  Since I have sensitive skin, I have to be careful with what eye primers I use and some of the dryer formulas make my eye lids too dry and my eczema flare up, so I like that after consistent use, this product didn’t do that to me.  If you are used to a more wet formula, this may not work for you overall, but I say at the price point, you should definitely give it a go.

I have a tip for the lovelies that apply eye liner and don’t use shadows as often.  Don’t think that an eye shadow primer is just for your eye shadows.  If you are looking for longevity of your liner whether gel, liquid or pencil, you can use the eye shadow primer to extend the length of use by applying over your lid and lower lash line.  The eye liner will last longer as does your eye shadow offering you vibrancy for your stunning looks.  Since the primer is virtually color-less when blended out, you can use it under any eye liner color or shadow color.

Have you tried or heard of Coastal Scents Step One Eye Primer?  I have used the Coastal Scents Shadow Worx in the past and enjoyed it but I much rather the formula of this new primer and the price point is fair considering the product will last you a long time.

  1. I love the lookyou have created – it looks gorgeous! I have so far only used Coastal Scents brushes which I wasn´t loving and one eyeshadow palette which is pretty good.

    • thank you love 😉 I did not like the older Coastal Scents brushes but have been pretty intrigued and liking the new ones lately 😉 I love their Revealed Palettes.

    I always use primer on my kids. Even if I’m using just liner so it doesn’t slide everywhere. It sounds like I would like the finish of it.

    Wow, Honey, that is a stunning look! I love your eye makeup. You come up with some imaginative and gorgeous combinations! I didn’t know Coastal Scents made an eye primer. Since I discovered UD AA eye primer, I haven’t strayed 😉

  4. I have never heard of this primer, but I’ll definitely keep it on my radar. The UD one stopped working for me, and Too Faced creases on me too. I love that eye look on you, it’s so pretty!

    I haven’t tried anything from Coastal Scents. That primer sounds pretty good and your eye look is beautiful.

    It sounds like a very effective primer! What a relief that it didn’t bother your sensitive skin or trigger your eczema! I’d say it’s a definite keeper! Your EOTD is utterly gorgeous!

    I don’t think I’ve tried anything from them, but I’ll have to keep it in mind. I used to be die hard UDPP fan, but I find it just doesn’t work the same on me anymore. Also, I prime my brows if I know I’ll be wearing my makeup for an extended period, it really keeps them on!
