What MUA says
If you’ve never used an Eye Primer before, now is the time to invest. Basically, it smoothes the eye lid ready for eye shadow to be applied. It also creates a base, helping the eye shadow last all night long – no more creases! You can sleep all day and party all night with the help of the Eye Primer from MUA, just pop it on the top of your eye lid, pat it in gently and apply your eye shadow directly on top of it. This product has the official seal of MUA Towers approval (ok, we might have just made that up) ‘cause every single one of us MUA girlies wear it every single day! And well, we need our makeup to last all day while we’re busy creating even more MUA…
Texture of MUA Professional Eyes Primer is similar to NYX HD eyeshadow Base, however that feels silky and Mua one becomes matte upon application. The primer is of beige color, and doesn’t disappear into the skin completely. It leaves a white layer (i don’t know what to call that) which helps in hiding eyelid discoloration to some extent and provides a smooth base.
I love how the powderiest of eyeshadows work really well with this beneath. It holds all the colors in place. Last time I had my eye makeup on for 9+ hours with minimal fading. I have tested and tried it with eyeshadows of various brands. Eyeshadows with average quality stays on for good 6+ hours before it starts fading, where better eyeshadows stays on for 9+ hours and then fades a bit.
My eye makeup did not crease whatsoever, maybe because my lids are not very oily. I am really amazed to see how good this product is for this price.

An amazing drugstore product which delivers excellent results at such a price. It locks in eye makeup for 8+ hours with minimal fading, I did not see any creasing either. It evens out lids and provides clean base to work. The eyeshadows show its true color and I haven’t faced any issue while blending them. I would highly recommend MUA eyeshadow primer to all the beginners and pros. I would be buying a backup soon. The only downside I could see is availability, but since we all love shopping online this too doesn’t seem to be an issue.
