after getting addicted to mineral foundations last year, MUFE MAT Velvet was the first non-mmu foundation i've tried and i loved it the first time i used it. no harsh reactions...and really love the finish. but now i honestly think i need a darker shade, no?
anyways, on to my review of TFSI
What it is: An eyeshadow primer guaranteed to go the distance.
What it does: This is your full-coverage insurance policy against all fading, creasing, melting, blurring, oil slicked, and hard-to-blend eyeshadow accidents. Our silicone based eyeshadow primer transforms any eyeshadow into a perfectly blendable, color-drenched, intensified version of itself, then locks it down perfectly until you take it off. This soothing formula evens out the skintone on your lids and smoothes lines while securing a barrier between the oils of your skin and your makeup, so no shadow catastrophes will ever happen again.
What else you need to know: Truly versatile, Shadow Insurance can be used with powder or cream eyeshadow products, and it's concentrated: the size of a rain drop covers the entire lid.
This primer is a lot like your skin shade (or maybe mine since we have different skin tones). comparing it to my UDPP which is whiter in color and more pasty, this one can be used as a lid wash to neutralize any eyelid discolorations. Also a little goes a long way.
What i like about this one is the packaging...well, we all know that UDPP has its "secrets." LOLZ. Also, unlike UDPP i didn't have a hard time blending colors with TFSI since it really gives you a smooth base for your eyeshadows.
before i give my final statements bout this product, let me show you my eye makeup after my shift:
yeah my eyeshadow creased on me after a few hours....i've tried TFSI using my other e/s brands but it gave me the same thing. I've tried to apply more, thinking i might have been using too little, but still gave me creasing eyemakeup. boo-hoo. i guess TFSI isnt really for me.
would i repurchase? YES....kiddin'!
I'd buy UDPP instead. :)
I know TFSI works for other people...so please don't rely on my review on it in case you've been itching to get this. Something that works for me may not work for you or vice-versa. This review is purely from my own experience.
so there...i think i'll just have this primer up for grabs.
