Primer comparisons!

We got a comment from Geena asking us to compare Medusa's Eye Primer Stick it! with Lime Crime's Candy Eyed Eye Shadow Helper.
So why not!?
I took a photo of them together just as a reminder!

Middle: SugarPill Loose Eyeshadow in Asylum
Right: Lime Crime Candy Eyed Eye Shadow Helper
Okay, so now it's swatching time!

My thought of this was that Asylum got a more creamier and a more coverage result on Medusa's primer, than on the Lime Crime.
Probably because it is more creamy, and glossy when it's applied. 
Lime Crimes Eye Shadow Helper is more drier in that way, but on the other hand it was much harder to wash off when I was done. 
It seems it takes hold of the pigment in a whole different way, than the Medusa primer does.
But I think they are both long lasting, though the result get's different but that could be an advantage to have one product but get changing results depending on used primer.

Hope you found this useful!

This was a great comparison- after checking out the swatches though, I think Asylum on Medusa looked best. This review was very helpful!

Good comparison! I think I'd like to try the Lime Crime version. I have very oily lids so a dry base usually works better for me.
