Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer Review

2:46 AM

Hi, advance merry Christmas to all of you! :)
I'm back with another Etude House product "mini" review, the Proof 10 Eye Primer. If I'm not mistaken, this product has been around since 2010 and has been getting good feedback from almost everyone that has tried it since then. Other people also claimed that this eye primer is a dupe of Urban Decay's Primer Potion. I haven't tried UD's primer yet so I can't do a comparison review. I wanted to get the Naked 3 but it's so overpriced on ebay. =_=
Anyway, if you've been reading my posts then you'd probably know by now that my make up skills are not legendary but basically just non-existent. lol But of course I want to learn especially eye make up! I have a few eyeshadows but most of them are too sheer which is why I wanted to give this primer a try. 
Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer
10 ml
Long lasting effect: It prevent from removing and creasing eyeshadow and eyeliner.
  Better adhesion: It makes silky and sleek eyelids for better adhesion.
  Smooth texture: It makes perfect eyes without sticking.

The manufacturing date can be seen at the bottom of the box.
Proof 10 Eye Primer supplies coverage to eyelids and around the eyes to enhance eyeshadow color and integrity for a longer lasting perfect 10 look.
There's nothing special in the packaging. I find handle quite long and the bottle is made of plastic which is actually good because you won't have to worry about it breaking when you accidentally drop it.
The packaging is similar to EH Tear Eye Liner and Oh M'Eye line.
It has a doe foot applicator. 
The primer is unscented and looks slightly thick but not sticky. It has a smooth consistency, blends quickly, and dries fast. According to the product description this is supposed to give coverage but it doesn't really have coverage, it becomes clear once you blend it and slightly brightens the skin tone.
Swatches with and without primer
As you can see in the swatches above, the eyeshadow swatches with the Proof 10 Eye Primer is much more vibrant than without it. It definitely enhanced the intensity of the eyeshadows. I had to apply the XOXO Minnie eyeshadow 4 times to make it show in the photo and it only took 2 swipes to make it show with primer. The longevity is great, I rubbed it too and as expected those eyeshadow applied with primer is still much more visible. I couldn't find the photo I took when I rubbed it but I'll take a new photo and will definitely update this post. This product claims to make your eye make up stay for 24 hours, I haven't tested that and I don't know if anyone will ever test this 24 hour claim because who wears make up that long? XD It tends to be cakey/patchy when you apply too much so make sure you only apply a proper amount of the primer, trust me, you won't need much. Another downside is the packaging, yes, it's nice but you won't be able to use everything because of the shape of the bottle unless you cut the bottle open. I haven't tried cutting it because I still have a lot. It's also hard to see how much product is left because the product are like stuck in the inner walls of the bottle. I wish it came in a squeeze tube type, that way you can use every bit of the primer. :P 
If you're looking for an eye primer, I would definitely recommend this, I think it works well for it's price. :)

  10. lol, I found that I'm enjoying your rant at the end of the post even more than the review! XP Well I enjoy the review too, that's pretty helpful but since I'm have about zero knowledge about eye make up... that can wait for later, kkk~ anyway, your shots are so incredibly good! How did you do that? You said you want a dslr? I thought you already owned one looking at the pics! ;A;

    apparently, other than my zero knowledge about eye make up I also have zero photographic skill TT^TT

  11. I have this eye primer too, but I'm not overly fond of it...

    PS: You need to do a post about your photography set up because your pictures are gorgeous!
