Comments about Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Candlelight Primer:

This product adds a nice base and nice shimmer to the eyelid. However, it is VERY hard to blend and goes on unevenly.

    Comments about Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Candlelight Primer:

    Lovely, warm color. A little goes a long way and it really takes a TEENIE amount to get the job done. When I apply it sparingly, it's almost nude yet still keeps eyeshadow on all day. I sometimes apply a second coat to use it as a highlight shade. Great primer for those of us who like warmer highlights / shades of shadow. I would repurchase.

      Great for daily use. The price is the only con, but you don't need much for each use.

      Made My Shadow Crease More

        Comments about Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Candlelight Primer:

        This product was a waste of money. I tried applying it different ways, and it never failed that every time I looked in the mirror half-way through the day, my eye shadow would have horrible creases. Without this product, the creasing was not nearly as bad. Do not fall for this. It is a complete waste of money.

              Comments about Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Candlelight Primer:

              I've been using the original Too Faced Eye Shadow Insurance Primer for 5 years now, and totally love it!. I was hoping this "Candlelight" version would just add some sheen to my matte eyeshadow shades. Not sure if the tube I bought was just old, but it applied thickly and very pigmented. It totally changed the color payoff of my shadows, not in a good way for me. It applied very "golden" looking and probably would have looked fine just on its own, but I did buy it to use as a primer, so I returned/exchanged it for my good old faithful original Too Faced Eye Shadow Primer.

                I bought this primer because of the glow and shimmer it has. I don't always like to wear a fully done eye to work, so I use a touch of the primer with mascara and liner, and I'm good to go! It's easy to use too much - a little bit goes a long way. Also great under shadows.

                  I am really surprised to read all of the good reviews for this product, because it just didn't work for me.I have dry skin, and I still found that this primer creased.

                  I used the ELF eye primer before this, and I found that it creased MUCH less. I have now moved onto MAC's painterly paint pot. I also didn't like to shimmer in this- it was too shimmery when applying my eyeshadows on top. I tried applying it in different ways too- waiting for it to dry before applying shadows, setting it with powder before shadow- nothing worked :(

                    Comments about Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Candlelight Primer:

                    ABSOLUTELY LOVE this god-send of a eye primer. I use it for my everyday looks but it also keeps my intense, going-out eye shadow looks going strong hours later. I went to Puerto Rico for a music festival outdoors in which it rained... aka extremely humid and terrible conditions for makeup but 8 hours later got back to my hotel room and my eye makeup literally looked exactly the same as when I left. Need I say more?

                    The glitter is perfect as a primer for any of your eyeshadow looks or alone as a simple highlighter. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who doesn't like sparkle as this is what the product is- they make another one that is not sparkly.
                    The staying power of this product is much better than the heavily praised UD primer in my opinion.
