Questions & Answers for LORAC Behind The Scenes Eye Primer

Question
How does this compare to UDPP?
I currently use UDPP and it does a good job, but the packaging sucks. I also have TFSI because everyone says it's the same, but my shadow still creases. Can someone tell me how this would compare to UDPP for someone with oily lids? I'm interested in this one, especially because it has no parabens, etc.

I find this primer to be *far* superior to the UD primer. Firstly, the texture/consistency works better for me - I find the UD primer to be too thick and difficult to manipulate, whereas the Lorac is more creamy and goes on like a dream, super-smooth. Also, as someone else said, the UD primer makes my eyes water/burn - not so with the Lorac. Both prevent creasing equally well, but the Lorac is just more, I dunno, luxurious...

I have super oily lids, so UDPP creases for me within about an hour.

This works SO MUCH BETTER. Just use about the size of a BB, or just a tiny bit more, depending on how much you need coverage for, and it works like a dream.

Another thing I've found that works is to wipe my eyelids clean with a wipey (baby wipes work well, for sensitive skin, unscented), and it'll work even better.

UDPP is the primer I've been using for two years, and nothing compares. I don't have oily lids or even issues with eye shadow creasing when I don't use primer, so originally I just used it to ensure the color I see is the color I get, but the lorac primer made all my eyeshadows, regardless of brand, crease. UDPP can do it all, and I would stick with that.

If you give this a try, you will love it! I was so loyal to UDPP until I decided to try this on a whim and now I swear by this eye primer. The formula of this primer is much better than UDPP and it doesn't cause that cakiness that UDPP tends to have. Also, because this tube is like a toothpast tube, you literally can squeeze every last drop out.

this beats the other primers, hands down. and i have really oily skin, too. i don't usually get samples when ordering anymore, just trying to be a bit green, you know? i saw this, and on a whim, decided to sample it, even though i didn't see how it could be better than Urban or Nars.

everyday after work, i get in my car, flip down my visor, and check out my eyemakeup- no creases, everyday. i adore it. if you're able to get a sample, you won't be disappointed!

after buying the full size, i bought some samples on Ebay, so i could mail them to my friends who live out of state. i want them to know how fantastic it is, too!

This product is oil free so this is much better for oily skin/lids. Its a lot less thicker than UDPP, applies smoothly and dries almost instantly. This product also doesnt dry or irritate my skin (like UDPP did). And you dont have to deal with the messy bottle and wand, this tube dispenses the perfect amount, so there is no wasting - and with this tube, you get ALL of your product. I like this MUCH better!

Tiny dot, one for each eyelid. If you use too much, it doesn't absorb. You want to create a thin layer that is completely dry in order to create that smooth finish, ready for eyeshadow.

This is my second tube of this primer and this is the ONLY eye primer that doesn't cake on your eyelids or bleed into your fine lines making it look more wrinkled. I highly suggest you trying this primer. The formula is sheer and goes on very smooth. The trick is to only put a small amount on and blend.

I have pretty much tried all the eyeshadow primers out there and this one is definitely one of the most mildest. I have not experienced any drying or itching (like I did with the UDPP). Its oil free, so this product is less thicker, dries instantly and doesnt make the eyelid crinkle like some of the thicker ones do. In fact, it makes any lines or wrinkles disappear. I have somewhat sensitive skin and this product has not caused any discomfort through itching or drying. Hope this helps!

I think a face primer and not an eye primer would be better. Eye primers are more "creamy" while face primers tend to have a more slippery, silicone finish, ripe and ready for concealer. Concealer works best it if it used AFTER your foundation, but before your powder. So I would use a face primer, foundation, then your concealer, then powder. But i would not use concealer over this product b/c I don't think it creates a good enough finish for the thickness of concealer.

Hi, the Lorac primer doesn't have much pigment in it so I personally don't think it can double as a concealer. Also, i tried using it under my concealer and that didnt work so well. What i do now that works well is place the primer on my lid, and my undereye concealer on my bare skin. However, the primer holds eyeshadow in place so well that you could use a skin tone eyeshadow base over the primer and that could help color-correct...hope that helps! :)

It's a really big container for a primer, and you just need a tiny amount. I'd guess it would last well over 8 weeks.

My skin and eyes are sensitive. If I try a product for the first time and see redness and irritation, I will stop using it immediately. When using Lorac Behind The Scene Eye Primer, it was creamy and light. I had no problems using this product. I love the fact that it's also free of oil, fragrance, and parabens. I would highly recommend this to my friends and sisters.

I have very sensitive eyes and have had no problems with this primer. It lasts all day but removes very easily when ready.

I would NOT recommend this for sensitive eyes. My eyes are not sensitive, and this primer set them on fire-- no matter what eyeshadow I used it with. (The same eyeshadows with Too Faced's primer did not bother me at all.) It was probably the best primer I've tried for keeping the eye shadow in place and vivid, but I sent this baby back.

I usually apply this first, then do the rest of my make up, and then apply eye shadow last. I've found that it really only takes about 10 to 15 seconds for it to set, though.

I don't wait . . . I immediately follow with my mineral makeup, which I also brush on my eyelids, and then follow with my shadow. It lasts all day. I would say you can apply shadow immediately after applying the primer. It dries almost instantly.

The product dries rather quickly - however, if you start to put on your eye make-up too quickly it can smudge. I would allow about 1 minute of dry time prior to applying your makeup. It does not seem to interfere with mascara.

It doesn't really dry. It has a slightly oily base, so the color can stick more readily. I apply shadow right after the primer. I love this product.

Just wait a few seconds, as it seems logical to allow it to set.. I put my undereye cover-up on, or condition my lips, and go back to the shadow...

I recommend waiting a minute. In a hurry, I have put my shadow on immediately afterwards, but I think you get the best results fron letting it sit for just a minute.

Minimal drying time. By the time I've put the cap on and picked up my shadow, my lids are ready to go.

Whenever I put the Lorac eye primer on I usually wait a minute and start doing my face makeup so that it will dry. I think that it's better for it to be completely dry in order for it to work the best.

I find that I have to wait a minute or two before applying eyeliner and shadow, but it's not a hinderance. I just apply my brow and undereye liner while I wait for it to "set".

If I were to use any primer for that purpose it'd be this one. The color is natural and blends in well, while other primers like those from Kat Von D and Urban Decay tend to add a little too much pigment below the eye.

I've been using this for two weeks to prevent eyeliner smudges on the lower lash line. I've tried NARS (too drying), Too Faced (helps minimally), Urban Decay (don't like the products at all). LORAC works ok. Instead of eyeliner smudges 10 min after applying, the smudges will start 45 min after applying. I haven't found an eyeliner or primer that works wonders, yet.

I have applied it lower on the eye, and it has definitely helped my liner from fading!

I have used this under my eye to help hold my liner. However I use eyeshadow for liner instead of pencil or liquid. But it seems to work fine.

You absolutely can...:) And because this brand has less chemicals than other popular brands, is it totally safe to user on the under of your bottom lash line (as long as it's not close to the water line).

Yes. I also use what's left over from the upper lid and swipe my finger under my lash line and it keeps my eyeliner intact.
