I apply a line to the back of my hand, about 1/2 inch, which is enough for both eyes. Then I use an eye shadow brush to apply to the lid. I rinse the brush out with water right away so it's dry by the next morning. I've applied it with the damp brush and it's worked fine too.

I apply my eye shadow immediately after. I find you have a good 5-10 minute window to work in so you don't have to rush.

I do a lot of blending. Blending does take a little more work, meaning you will need to apply more shadow than you normally would, in order to blend it. I use brushes to blend and rarely my fingers.

Be sure to apply the product evenly because its noticable if you miss a spot!

You do have to have a lighter hand when applying shadow because it really does glue it to you. You apply a small amount to you finger and dab, don't rub, the primer until its thinly and evenly applied from lashline up to the underneath of your brow.

Spread it on evenly, all over your lids and let it dry before you apply shadow. It never really "dries" so to speak, but you need to let it set, before you apply shadow.

I pat it on just my lower eye lid to just above the crease because this is the only place I want the glitter to go. I then press the glitter or glittery eye shadow on the primed area. I can still blend the shadow I put on above the crease. Blending with the glitter glue is not a good option.

you spread it on like a regular eye shadow primer but I recommend to work it in fast because it gets tacky and that is what holds the glitter in place.

Would you recommend this for applying it over an existing shadow to accent that shadow with glitter?
I just want to be able to add some glitter over the shadow I put on, without covering up the shadow. How do you apply this product? Do you just slap it on your eye and then dab some glitter over it? Or would it work to mix in glitter with the glue???

I have done exactly what you are wanting to do. Put your eyeshadow on the way you normally would. Then pat on a small amount of the glitter glue to the area you want to apply the glitter. Then press, not brush, the glitter to this area. You will get a fantasic effect that is really, really pretty.

if u try putting it over the shadow the shadow will come off with it. In my experience, i have used less strong lid primers and after putting my eyeshadow on i just use my finger and dab the glitter over the shadow and it holds ....i think that will work even better with this primer because it is soo sticky.

So sorry I posted a response in your question! It was an accident. Regarding your question.....Someone I spoke to on Beauty Advice said she mixed the primer with loose pigment glitter, then quickly applied with a brush and it turned out well. They also said the primer is colorless so I would think that it would not interfere with your base shadow if you want to add a layer of glitter to the top. Again, sorry for botching up your question. I could have sworn I posted it under my question :(

Will this eye primer prevent glitter and shimmer fallout and is that what it is specificly desinged for? For example- I love the TF color Glamazon but the fine glitter fallout prevents me from using it as much as I would like. Will this stop that problem? I would also like to know more about the texture of it. Is it very sticky? Thanks for any help you can give!

This product works really good. If you are looking to lock down the glitter on your eyes then this is the product for you. When you put a little on your finger you can tell that it has a glue like feeling but when it dries it doesn't feel cracky. It feels just fine once dried. I think you'll like it. This tube should last you a while.

Can it double as a lid primer?
On the days I don't need this for loose powders/shimmers/glitters, can I wear it as a regular eyelid primer, like Too Faced's Shadow Insurance? I haven't bought it yet, but it'd be nice to not have to use seperate products.

Additionally, do you have to use a primer beneath this Glitter Glue?

You might be able to use this as a normal primer, however keep in mind. It is sticky, to hold the glitter in place. Therefore, you would probably have to use a finger to apply the eyeshadow and you would have to pat it on. I do not think it would work well with a brush or trying to rub the shadow on. Good luck!

No. I really hope no one else is telling you it's okay to do so. Glitter Glue is very thick and tacky which is very important for loose glitters but it will make your powder and cream shadows smear or crease. Sorry :(

I've used it with UD shadows. I'd recommend blending as you go for sure, but it didn't cause any fallout that way for me. It's just that it's harder to blend when it dries completely it holds so well for me. I even got this to work with my NARS eurydice (the purple side with the blue reflects that don't show...they showed up!) and NARS tropic without fallout!

You could definitely use this with UD's glitter shadows and that's one of the reasons I bought it. Primer itself doesn't keep the glitter from falling down through out the day but this stuff really adheres to the eyes (it's not heavy either). When applying your glitters, best way to avoid excess fall out during application is either use the same finger you used to apply the bonding primer with or use a brush to blend the glitter bond over the eye and then use the same brush to pick up the glitters (pick up small amounts) and pat it on. I think this is every woman's dream come true product for those pesky glitter fall outs. Hope this helps. It's a great investment and definitely saves the rest of your face from looking like a glitter bomb after a couple of hours.

I have sensitive "allergy eyes" and I wear contacts and I have not had any problem with the glittle glue. But this is not an ordinary eye primer. It is intended for eye glitter (not just sparkling shadows) which are difficult for some people to use if you are not careful. So if you are an experienced glitter gal, you shouldn't have an issue. If not, I recommend Bare Escentuals Brightening Prime Time Eye Primers. They are all natural and amazing. Hope that helps. :)

no glitter in it. You prime your eye, layer on your eyecolors, then with a small flat brush (or fingertip) pat on a light layer of Glitter Glue. Then you can get your glitter, and adhere it to the Glitter Glue over everything else. It stays tacky for a minute so you don't have to be super fast before it dries out on the lid and you dont get a chance to stick on the glitter.

It does not contain glitter. This is an eye primer that you apply to a clean eye lid before you would apply loose glitter to your eye. It is clear and kind of thick and tacky (like elmers glue) which is very important and is why it works like nothing else at keeping glitters from creasing or traveling. It is not intended for regular eye shadows. Hope this helps. :)

I've used this product for a week now in the 105 degree Central Texas heat. I don't work outside, but I go in and out in the heat quite a bit. I would say I have slightly oily lids. If you use loose eye shadow, it works wonderfully. I have not had any creasing or decrease of performance over a 9 hour work day. I've worn it as long as 12 hours and had no problems. If you go back and forth with regular shadows, I would suggest keeping a regular primer around. It is my opinion this product is specifically for those of us that use a lot of loose pigments and glitter products. I have noticed when I use "regular" shadows with this primer, it just sticks there and is hard to blend.

Question
Could this be used for metallic/glittery eyeliner?
I recently had a problem with a lot of the shimmer/glitter Urban Decay 24/7 pencils where the mica or shimmer particles fell in my eye and irritated it. The rest of the pencil--the pigment part--stays on, but the mica/glitter seems to fallout a little after wearing the eye pencil a while [I don't line my waterline]. Is this something you could use to prevent that, or is it so sticky you couldn't even apply an eye pencil over it?

I probably would not use it just to keep the glitter eyeliner in place. it is so tacky that if you don't put anything on top of it, your lid feels sticky and weird for hours (at least mine did where I didn't put any glitter). Maybe try a different primer? Urban Decay's Primer is too thin for my taste, I prefer the Bare Escentuals primers or the original shadow insurance from Too Faced.

I think you would be able to apply an eye pencil over it, however you would not be able to "draw" with it. It would be more like patting the glitter on. But yes, I think it would accomplish what you would like for it to. The best thing I can think of is trying to find a Sephora store close to you and trying it in person. Good luck!

You could probably apply sparkle liners over the glitter glue but I honestly don't think it will help. The reason it's so tacky is it needs to be to hold onto the larger dry particles of a glitter as opposed to the smaller particles of a regular eye shadow. I just don't think going wet to wet will help. (I hope that makes sense. In the make-up artist world, eye liners and primers are both considered "wet") My advice would be to try applying a little bit of a translucent powder (ie Mineral Veil) with an eye shadow brush on top of your applied eye liner. That might keep the glitter from falling out of the liner. I hope it works!
