Laura Mercier Eye Basics Primer

I received a little sample (which looks like the cutest thing in the tiny packaging) a little while ago, but never really paid too much attention to it because I was already using and liking the Urban Decay Primer Potion and the NARS eye primer.  But while I was looking through some of my make up and came across this small sample, I decided to give it a try.

The Laura Mercier Eye Basics Primer is a cream based primer that comes in numerous shades for those needing a bit of coverage on their eyes.  The cream based primer evaporates to a dry and matter finish, helping your shadows last longer and prevents any creasing throughout the day.

At first I did not think I would not like the primer because it is a little bit creamier than the NARS primer, which made me worry about creasing and smudging.  But, a little goes a very long way, and because it does evaporate to a matte finish, it works as a great base for the shadows.  I do find that me eye looks really last while using the Laura Mercier Eye Basics Primer.  What I do like most about it is that it does come in a variety of shades that help neutralize the shade of your lid if you need.

Compared the my other eye primers, I still say that the NARS eye primer is my favorite.  However, the Laura Mercier Eye Basics Primer has probably jumped into second place, and the Urban Decay Primer Potion follows.
