I can't stress enough how crazy I am about Primers for my eyes and face. They truly changed my makeup life. Primers are great and a must-have for oily skin like me. If there is a primer out there, I must try it!
Eye makeup application for me is like a labor of love. You put time and effort in applying it. Deciding the color combination are a task especially if you've been doing it everyday like i do. So when my eyemakeup creases on me, i get so frustrated. That is why i consider an eye primer a very important tool in achieving my mini work of art. And don't you just hate creasing?
Eye Poxy by Coastalscents have intrigued me for quite sometime so i jumped on the chance of buying one when my friend offered.
Here's what CS says about Eye-poxy,
Our Eye-Poxy™ Shadow Primer for eyes is applied in a thin layer across the lid, crease line and below the brow.
It is much creamier than our original primer allowing for ease of application. Your colors will adhere, blend together and also become more vibrant.
When using please only tap, tap your finger into the poxy, rub between 2 fingers to warm it, then apply. It is not necessary to remove it to get the results. If you choose to remove a small amount please rub between your fingers until smoothe then apply to the lid, this will allow your shadow to last until you are ready to remove it.
I live in the southern part of Florida, Hot, Humid, Sticky weather, I have oily skin also. My makeup remains in tact 12 to 15 hours (after that I remove it).
Net wt. 10 grams 2 x the amount sold for the same price or more by other makeup companies.
Ingredients:Dimethicone, Cyclomethicone, Triethylene Glycol,Boron Nitride, Beeswax, Cetyl Alcohol, Polysorbate 80, Silica, Candelilla Wax, Carnuba Wax, Mica, Magnesium Stearate, Vitamin E (Tocopherol)
Contains no parabens or chemicals, it is actually good for the skin.
1. Contained in a clear jar with silver cap. Very cost-effective.
2. The Primer is color white,
3. When applied, it becomes clear with shimmer
4. Smells like a Clinique or Oil of Olay moisturizer my grandma use to apply on her face.

There are a few things that makes a great eye primer for me.
1. Eye makeup last at least 6 to 8 hours.
2. Doesn't smell bad
3. Blending is easy
4. Budget friendly
5. Easy to use
So far, The Eye Poxy passed my 5 criterias. My eye makeup lasted for about 9 hours (or more if i didn't remove it). It doesn't smell bad at all. Blending is okay but i could definitely work on my application technique. It is easy on the pocket because it its only $11.95, beats the price of other primers out there. Easy to use since it is contained in a jar with all the product very much accessible. Although i have to remember that i have to close it tightly to prevent it from drying. I also notice a little goopiness when i apply it, but maybe that's just me.
Overall, i am loving this product with every use.
I do recommend this to those who are just learning to apply eyeshadows and toying around with bright colors and don't want to shell out too much for a primer.
The verdict: 4.5 out of 5 Kikay Pinay Points
This definitely gets a seal of my approval.
Hope this helps!!
