primer necessary? is fallout an issue?
Ever since my lids have been developing this dreaded crepe texture, whenever I use primer, my eye makeup looks terrible. Even the smoothest, most buttery matte shadows look pretty terrible if I wear them over primer. My eyelids aren't particularly oily, but my eyeliner does smudge and crease pretty easily - even the long-wearing formulas, like Urban Decay 24/7 liners.
How do these eye shadows hold up on bare skin? How much fallout do they tend to have? I'm specifically looking at Smoky Topaz, Black Karat, and possibly Aubergine.
Appreciate any input!

I have all the colors. When placing the eye shadow pat it on and when using it wet my trick is to wet eye shadow brush and tap your eye then with a clean dry brush place the eye shadow. I always use a eye base so I do not know how well it works with out one.
I don't use primer, ever. When applied wet, this eyeshadow doesn't budge or fade.
I have black karat. I do use a primer on my lids and I feel that helps my shadow to last. There is a minimum amount of fallout right after I put it on, but I wipe it off and I don't notice any afterwards as the night goes on.
