Review: MUA Professional Eye Primer

A lot of people seem to love the MUA Eye Primer and I've seen it compared to both the Urban Decay Primer Potion and Too Faced Shadow Insurance, so when my old George primer ran out I decided to give it a try. And at only £2.50 it's well worth it.
The tube is a classy looking black one and the applicator is a doefoot style wand (like a lipgloss) which I totally forgot to take a picture of.


As you can see it blends in colourless.

And lasts pretty well given I have greasy lids, and this was after facing wind and rain on the way home.
(apologies for the fact this isn't in natural light, not enough that at 4:30pm at present! And ignore the shinyness of my face >.<)


Cheap. Lasts a pretty long time, even on my greasy lids. I like the doefoot style applicator as it stops me getting out too much like squeezy tube styles. Prevents staining pretty well, I haven't tried it with the Collection Teal liner (which is one of the worst culprits for me) but it's done the job with the Purple one and the Barry M Denim glitter which usually leaves my eyelids a bit blue! Sleek and professional looking packaging.


Can't see how much is left, though none of the other primers I've seen personally have had clear tubes. The cardboard box the tube comes in could be seen as a bit wasteful as far as packaging goes if you're environmentally friendly. 
I can't compare to high end primers as I've never had one, but then again you can google!

Where to Buy

Superdrug or MUA online here for £2.50


  1. It's annoying that you can't see how much is left, but I have had my current tube six months with daily wear and it's still going! xx

    1. Brilliant! At least that means I won't be needing to run out and buy a new one any time soon :) x

  2. Hiiii,
