In one of my The Eyes of March posts I mentioned that I was testing the Michael Todd Eyeshadow Base on one eye and the Urban Decay Primer Potion on another eye. I don't wear two different primers on a daily basis, obviously, but that day I wanted to see how the Michael Todd holds up. I recently purchased this product off Hautelook because I have heard people raving about it. Urban Decay Primer Potion is my absolute favorite base so it is definitely something another primer has to live up to. UDPP lasts on my eyes all day and I can't rave about it enough! Keep in mind I have oily lids and if I have no primer, my eyeshadow would crease in a few hours.

10 AM- Just applied eyeshadow, both eyes look the same
1 PM- UDPP side is the same, MT side has slightly sunk into crease lines
4 PM- UDPP side is the same, MT side colors has started to muddle together
7 PM- UDPP side has slightly faded, MT side has creased up
As you can see, the Michael Todd Eyeshadow Base didn't hold up as well throughout the day as well as the Urban Decay Primer Potion did. Because I usually have 14 hour days, I need my eyeshadow to hold up as long as possible. Unfortunetly, the Michael Todd Eyeshadow Base didn't hold up and didn't work for me =[. Of course, this would work differently for others but this was my experience.
You can buy Michael Todd Cosmetics from All Cosmetics Wholesale or from Hautelook when they have it on sale. The prices on both are around the same.
Have you tried the Michael Todd Eyeshadow Base? How did it work for you?
