      Comments about Too Faced Shadow Insurance Candlelight Primer:

      Creates a beautiful base for natural looking eyeshadow. I like for my eyes to pop without looking too made up, and this product is perfect for that. It gives a little shimmer and makes light eye shadow that would normally disappear on my skin pop. It lasts all day.

        I use it as a primer. It helps my eyeshadow last and stay on all day. It helps to make it more opaque.

          Comments about Too Faced Shadow Insurance Candlelight Primer:

          I've tried just about every brand that carries eye shadow primer you can think of.. Tarte, Urban Decay, Smashbox.. And this is my favorite. If you aren't a fan of shimmery eye shadow, this isn't for you! Personally, I love shimmer everything when it comes to eyes. I wear it every day, and it's been perfect for cheer competition makeup. Not only is the color fantastic, once your eye shadow is set you're good all day! I have very oily skin so I've always had issues with eye shadow smearing and creasing. I've accidentally fallen asleep without taking my eye makeup off and woken up to it still looking perfect! This stuff rocks, to say the least!

            I use this product as a base for eye makeup and also as a highlighter under my brow. I love the color but it is too shimmery. I am 70 years old and do not want to look like I am 20+ yrs old. It is a good product just too shimmery. I want Lemon Drop back!

              I love this primer, I used to use their regular primer everyday which is great too, but this just adds that extra radiance that Is perfect even for light makeup.

              I don't think this product gives good coverage, therefore the shadow doesn't adhere well. I don't like it near as well as Urban Decay. I will be returning it!

                Wear it alone or as a primer, either way it is an AMAZING product, my shadow NEVER creases no matter how long I wear it, it has a beautiful goldish shimmer to it so it brightens your eyes the moment you apply it. A little goes a long way so you will get your monies worth out of this primer it will last a long time.

                the product seems a bit thin at first use but make sure you kneed the tube just before applying. Apply only a tiny amount cause it's thin enough that it spreads very easily. This gives you the perfect canvas to put on eyeshadow that will actually last all day and night without budging. This stuff is fantastic. Would not be without and I've tried many of these and this by far is the BEST!!

                    A:

                    The only difference is the tint of each! Shadow Insurance Champagne Primer features a champagne nude shimmer. Shadow Insurance Candlelight features a shimmery gold color.
