Q & A Response-Stay put for the EYES

In the Q & A section Jewells asks- "What is a good primer to use on the eyes?"
As many of you know I am pretty new to the whole eye shadow program so I have not purchased a primer yet. I know that when I do wear my eye shadow after hours and hours some of the shadow will settle into the crease of my eyelid, which is not the most attractive look. Primers are used to prepare the eye lid before you apply your eye shadow so that it has staying power and will not settle into your creases.
The primer that I have my eye on and plan on purchasing, is the Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion because it is nude and it is supposed to dry quickly and work effectively. The fact that it is $16 does not hurt either. The negative side is that it is laced with parabens..yikes.
Illusions Cosmetics has a primer that seems much healtheir for our skin because it has vitamins A and E along with grape seed extracts. The only problem is that this $18 primer is for foundation.... sigh.
So do any of you have recommendations for primers that work flawlessly?
Thanks

i never used a primer but i would use mac's shadestick to enhance any power shadow i used. it kept my power in place well and brightened the color.

WOW great post! I'm an amateur when it comes to makeup. I don't wear blush or foundation because I feel like it'll be too much on my face and finding a match for my skin tone is exhausting lol However, eye shadow...OH BOY eyeshadow is my bestfriend! I didn't know about primer because I just put my eyeshadow on and roll lol but now I will try it out! Yayyyy I'm super excited!

Thanks PJD

I'm a slacker when it comes to putting on eyeshadow so I haven't tried primers yet.

@Antithesis humm that sounds like it serves a very similar purpose. thx for the information.
@Eliana sometimes more come throughout the week so check back here if you can :-) Thanks for visiting
@ Just Wondering well I can see from your pic that you have a beautiful compexion, you may want to check out Illusions Cosmetics to find a matching foundation if you are interested, or bare minerals they have a range of colors.
@PBW I just bought my first one today, I will let everyone know how it works out.
