Laura Mercier Eye Basics in

I used to be in love with Urban Decay Primer Potion.  The stuff is good, I must admit.  It wears well with no creasing.  However, the packaging is infamously horrible and I found it hard to blend over.

Come Sephora friends and family sale, I decided to give Laura Mercier Eye basics a try.  I have heard good things about them and the packaging is much better than Urban Decay's.  Look, I think you may actually be able to get all the product out!!(hallelujah!!)

I bought the color linen.  In retrospect, I probably should have picked up something darker such as wheat because linen is a little too light to really blend into my skin.  I am about nc20 for reference.
There are also peachy tones in linen which is nice and brightening to the eye area.

What do I think this is a good primer? Well, I do think it is easier to blend over than Primer Potion.  However, I do find that it creases.  I can't give an exact amount of time it takes for it to crease because I don't check my eye makeup very frequently.

Overall, would I repurchase, no.  I would recommend this to people who have drier eyelids who just want something to intensify their eyeshadows.
