This is IT!

Wow does this work great! I did several days of side by side comparison using different eyeshadow palettes (including Luster) leading up to my wedding using this eyeshadow base, a UD’s potion, tarte concealer, and nothing at all and this won every single time. Eye shadow looked amazing, no creasing or fading after busy 12+ hour healthcare worker shifts. I don’t foresee ever buying anything else. I got married last week and used it on my wedding day—no regrets. I’m 45 with semi hooded lids with some 45 year old semi crinkly eyelid skin. If you’re hesitating about buying this, don’t. It’s worth its weight in gold. I’ve been raving about it to colleagues and friends. I wore it for 12 hours today and today was another no crease, fabulous eye look day. Alter Ego, you’ve really knocked it out of the park here. You have a great product at a ridiculously affordable price. Please don’t ever stop making it. I’ll be a lifer for this stuff.

Love this base

Alter Ego eyeshadow base is one of my top two favorite primers. It gives a perfect base for shadows to adhere to, and will be in my primer rotation for a long time!

Quality of products and delivery

I'm in love with Alter Ego's eyeshadow pallettes. Beautiful packaging and excellent color payoff. Delivery is amazingly fast too. I'm living in Asia so whenever I can get my orders delivered in 2 weeks or less, I'm a happy camper 😊

Works as well as Urban Decay

Light and creamy feeling but doesn't settle into creases. My new go to eye primer and the price is better than good!


Best eye primer I’ve ever used. Works great to create a clean, even, lasting canvas for eyeshadows. Easy, spreadable consistency. Not drying. Actually enhances eyeshadow colors. I’m very happy with this product and highly recommend it!
