I have been loving the By Terry Eye Base Prime To Fix (also called Eyelid Base Perfector) a lot lately. Basically, it’s an eye-shadow primer, and it has the most luxurious hydrating formulas I have ever used. I have had the highly popular primers include Nars, Too Faced and Urban Decay, and By Terry stepped up the game by offering a makeup product that can be doubled as an all-in-one eye product for color correction, plumping and smudge proof. I love how lightweight yet hydrating the formula is for my sensitive eyes while it delivers a great job of holding eye makeup for the whole day.
If you find that your eye primer feels too heavy, drying and can look a little cakey, then this product is worth a try. It has a fluid milky consistency that applies like a luxurious eye lotion and provides instant moisturization so you can even skip your eye lotion. It has an ivory tint from the tube but applies translucent, and it makes the skin appear more even-looking and fills up the fine lines for a more youthful look. The formula is closer to skincare, as it applies silky smooth and dries to a semi-matte finish after a few seconds, rather than coating the eyelid with a layer of silicone. It helps the eye shadow to glide on easily, maximizes the intensity of powder and cream shadows, and prevents them from creasing for the whole day for me. Since the formula is much more hydrating than the conventional ones, this product is most suitable for normal to dry, sensitive or aging skin around the eyes.
