SKU: Primetime.

This primer is the best way to eliminate mid-day eyeshadow creasing or disappearing acts. It will also provide a solid color base for your eyeshadows to be applied on top of, which allows the shadow to really shine. Our primer corrects any discolorations or veins on your eyelids (heaven forbid we have veins or redness on our eyelids right?!). Let’s call this a creamy powder consistency. It isn’t a liquid, it isn’t a cream, it isn’t a powder, it’s somewhere in between.

How To Apply:

With clean and dry eyelids, use your pinky finger and get a SUPER SMALL amount of the primer on your finger. Gently, apply from your clean finger all over your eyelid and anywhere else you want.

I like to use a cotton swab and apply under my eye (where the purple skin is) and on blemishes.

NOTE: Make sure not to use too much! This is a product that should last you a very long time. Using too much on your eyelid will result in creasing, and that is quite the opposite of the intended effect.

  2. 4 out of 5 Great Primer

    Michele

    This is the first and only primer that I have used. It works great overall with the eyeshadows. It enhances the colors and helps keep the shadow on longer. I can notice a difference when I am not wearing the primer. It’s great quality and a little goes a long way. Only thing keeping it a 5 star rating-I don’t think that it works as good with the very light color eyeshadows-at least with my skin tone.

  4. 4 out of 5 Great Base

    Michelle

    This neutral tone is great for blocking out any discoloration or veins on eyelids; you could use this if you are in a rush without any eyeshadow for a natural look. There is a slight learning curve as to how much product to use. I thought I was using the bare minimum but it collected after a couple of hours in the crease of my eyelid but is easily fixed by lightly brushing my finger over the crease a couple of times and it is good to go the rest of the day. It is a concentrated product so when other people say you don’t need much I would agree and emphasize that you are better with less. It is somewhere between a cream and powder and goes on smoothly. Because it is so concentrated it will last a very, very, very long time. As a person with highly sensitive and reactive skin I am thrilled that I have not had any reactions to this product. This year I became allergic to eye makeup and it has been challenging to find products that work for me. It’s great that I don’t react but even better that I actually like the product.

  5. 4 out of 5 Great coverage, silky smooth

    Jennifer

    I really like this eye primer. I never thought I’d need it before, but thought I’d give it a try during one of RAL’s sales. It covered nicely, blended my red puffy eyelids, and felt so smooth to the touch. My eyelids are no longer puffy after using this! My eye shadows no longer look fake or cracked or like I’ve been wearing make-up for days. Will never go without this product and can now see the benefits to using under eye shadow.

  6. 4 out of 5 Almost perfect

    Melinda in SF

    The coverage and texture for this product are great. As other reviewers noted, I mix this with some eye cream and use it as a concealer too. The coverage lasts 9 – 10 hours for me.

    The only suggestion I have is that it would be great if this could fit in the palette along with my eye shadows.

    Kimberley

    Love my products, especially the eye primer. I used to work for Clinique as a cosmetic artist and found out I had celiac. Needless to say I no longer work for clinique.

  8. 4 out of 5 Eyeshadows more visible!

    Kathy

    I had never used eye primer, but read that it would make the shadow colors brighter, last longer, and get rid of the annoying shadow crease. I was a little nervous. I didn’t want to experience another reaction. I experimented with the eye primer and learned how to use it properly. My eyelids were very comfortable and the color more visible and long lasting. I still get a little creasing after several hours of wear. I blame that only on my slightly greasy eyelids. I love Red Apple Products and can’t wait to try some more.

  9. 4 out of 5 It works great!

    Kim

    I love the primer. It works great! I have been able to replace my Urban Decay with this primer. My only complaint with this is it is too thick to use a brush to apply so I have to use my fingers. I know that fingers are great for applying makeup but I prefer to use brushes.

  10. 4 out of 5 Would recommend it to everyone

    Unknown

    I bought the eye makeup primer a couple of months ago and have not had time to critique it until now and wanted to get this in before your summer sale. I LOVE IT. It is creamy and goes on smooth and is a great base for eye shadows. It covers up any imperfection around your eyes. Then you put your eye makeup on and it lasts all day (even, like me, if you rub your eyes, it doesn’t rub off). At 4:30 the other afternoon I got a compliment on my how good my eye makeup looks–usually by then it has vanished from touching and rubbing my eyes (allergies). It’s a wonderful product and I would recommend it to everyone. Thanks for all your wonderful products.

  11. 4 out of 5 No irritated eyes!!

    Christina

    I have been using the eye primer for a little over 30 days now and I
    like it. I have hooded eyelids, so I have a lot of trouble with my eye
    shadow and eyeliner smearing and creasing. I had a lot less creasing
    and slightly less smearing. I could also tell my eye shadow didn’t last
    nearly as long on days when I forgot to wear the primer. And most
    importantly, it didn

  12. 4 out of 5 The color is just perfect!

    E Stone

    It is so much better than any eyeshadow primer I’ve ever had. The color is just perfect. It makes it so my eyeshadow stays on a lot longer than before–before, I used to have to reapply my eyeshadow multiple times per day (no joke!). Now, I just have to reapply once per day. (But even if I don’t reapply at all, everything still looks fine.

  13. 4 out of 5 Honesty in Advertizing!

    Suzanne

    How wonderful that this eye primer does
    everything that you say it will! It is easy to apply, has a nice feel
    and really evens out the color on my lids. The primer leaves a slight
    neutral color on your lids and eyeshadow goes on easily over it. I have
    had no problems with creasing. It also covers small red spots on your
    skin pretty well.

    Thanks for a great product!

  14. 4 out of 5 Fantastic!

    Jennifer

    I’ve been giving the primer a try for about a month now, and it’s fantastic! The primer feels really good. It goes on smooth, it stays in place and it also keeps my makeup on. I’ve have a hard time with fallout AND even it disappearing by noon. Even your eye shadow, I’ve got oily eyes or something. But the application of the primer makes my makeup stick!

  15. 4 out of 5 Primer is creamy!

    Michele

    The primer is creamy and delicious and could probably be worn with no

    shadow at all as it’s so nice! The first time I wore it with the 2

    shadows that were demonstrated on the video by Andrea, it stayed on all

    day, all evening, and I used makeup remover to take it off as it looked

    as good at 10 PM as it did when I put it on! Needless to say, I was
    thrilled with the primer and the eyeshadow colors and how they made me
    feel/look!

  16. 4 out of 5 I love the primer!

    Pam

    I love the primer. I use it every day and when I first got it I purposely left it on overnight and the eye liner was still in place in the morning. Just testing it. My eye shadow and eye liner both stay in place very well. I also like the slight color if I don’t wear eye shadow some days.

  17. 4 out of 5 Very nice product

    Anne Foster

    The eyeshadow primer works quite well for me. It certainly helps the eyeshadow go on easier and more smoothly. I also use eyeliner, and it does not always help that stay where it should be. Sometimes, eyeliner migrates up to my eyeshadow area. It always has done so; I’m sure it is probably a product of how my eye area is put together. In any case, I am very happy with the primer and will defintely purchase it again. It for sure makes my beautiful RA eyeshadows look most true to shade and as I previously stated, go on smoother. Another winner, in my opinion.

  18. 4 out of 5 New Eye Shadow Primer

    Meg

    I have just received the new eye shadow primer
    product and I have to say I like it. It is silky in texture and glides
    onto the eye lid with ease. I’m even thinking of using it as an
    alternative eyeshadow.

    However, although it improves the longevity of the eyeshadow I still
    have problems with any eye shadow lasting through the day. I have
    always had this problem regardless of what eye shadow product I use.

  19. 4 out of 5 Fantastic Eye Primer!

    Nicole

    I have used the primer several times and it is definitely a must-have! After 10-12 hours of wear my eye shadow is in place with only ever so slightly creases…which are easily blended. I could not ask for better coverage…it also works well under the eyes. It is easily applied and allows the eye shadows to pop with even color 🙂

  20. 4 out of 5 decrease the crease

    Unknown

    This primer worked well for me. Though it doesn’t completely eliminate a crease for a whole day (could any product?), it does a great job in keeping the eyeshadow in place, prolongues the interval before creasing occurs, and minimizes the creasing. While using this product, I was able to use less eyeshadow because the eyeshadow shows up better with the primer beneath. I was very happy with how nice my eyeshadows looked when applied over this eye primer and with how the shades stayed where they had been applied throughout the day (with minimal pooling in the crease). I did have to be certain I applied the eye primer evenly and thoroughly to have optimal results.

  21. 4 out of 5 Loving The Eye Primer

    Kathleen

    Hi jay! I am loving the eye primer. It is keeping the shadow in place
    untill about 5pm so all day. In evening I do experience mild creasing
    but am able to blend it back in with my finger tip so I don’t even need
    any shadow brushes. The creasing had been a big problem for me as my
    eyelids are much oiler than most. So. Dry Halley to have a safe non
    toxic worry free primer! Thank you so much for including me in your
    trial run. I am so impressed with all of The RAL products I own. I never
    have to worry about a look or color from your line because they are all
    so well done, I am completely confident all the time now.

    Sincerest thanks to you,

    Kathleen

  22. 4 out of 5 Great Base For Beautiful Eye Colors

    Pat

    I have used the Prime Time for 2 weeks. Even though I have tried other eye primers before, I never stayed with them. Prime Time is smooth going on. It is a great base for your beautiful and dynamic eye colors. I can really work with the colors in the hue they were intended to be.

  23. 4 out of 5 RAL COMES THROUGH AGAIN

    Alyssa

    I think this is a really great product. I used to use benefits prime time eye shadow primer, but i would get really itchy eyes from it and other primers as well. I’m not sure if my lids are more oily than the others reviewers on here, but my eye shadow definitely does not last 12 hours. I can get a solid 8 out of it before it starts to look dull, move around and my eyes begin to look really dark. I work 12 hour shifts and have an hour drive in between, so from the time I apply my make up to when i take it off its a solid 15 hours. I wish that it worked better on me and stayed longer…. Maybe its from the fact that i use argon oil as a face moisturizer? I don’t know, but either way, for the time it does last on me, its great!

  24. 4 out of 5 Great primer, but color could be improved

    Shana

    This primer does what it says it will – holds eyeshadow in place all day without much creasing. It goes on creamy and smooth. I just wish it wasn’t such a cool grayish white color. It looks awfully white on my warm skin with red undertones. A warmer color option would be a nice addition. But overall, I’ll buy it again.

  25. 4 out of 5 Best Natural Primer

    Unknown

    I have very oily eyelids and have been looking for a more ingredient friendly eye primer and I do think this is the best I have tried. It evens out the skintone of my eyes and allows the color of the shadow to shine. I do find that even with the primer, the shadows do begin to fade and crease around the six hour mark.

  26. 4 out of 5 Product deserves 5 stars

    Mo

    It’s great! Just the right weight, easy to blend and spread, stays put, becomes one with your eye shadow. I love it!

    But I think RAL missed the boat in terms of the form of its
    packaging. These cute little pots do not allow the product to be used in
    a Z-palette. It would be much more handy to keep with eye shadows in
    your palette. I’ve used lots of methods to try to remove these little
    pans from their little pots, per instructions online for other products.
    All have left me spewing four-letter words. The easiest method, using
    heat, is not appropriate for a creamy product like this. Please give
    this product a wonderful, magnetic pan like your eye shadows.

  27. 4 out of 5 So smooth

    Susan

    Goes on smooth and has a great texture. Works well as a concealer for dark under eye circles. Had some creases by end of day, but was much better than before. I have unusually oily skin. Will definitely make this part of my daily make up routine. Thank you!!

  28. 4 out of 5 Did I do it right?

    Unknown

    Hi, I’ve only used the primer once so far and I wanted to make sure I’m
    using it right. It was a very long day and at the end of it I had more
    color left then I usually do but it was creased like always. Based on
    others feedback I’m sure I’m doing something wrong. Could you please
    tell me how I should be using it? I just put it on and then put on the
    eye-shadow. Is that right? I’m going to try it again tomorrow, maybe a
    day of clinicals was a bad test day, lol.

    Thanks!!

  29. 4 out of 5 i like it

    Unknown

    i love how it creates a nice base for applying my eye shadow, however i still get a dark line in the crease of my eye. i don’t know if that is just how my eyes are or if its how i applied the primer or my eye shadow. it doesn’t irritate my eyes and am really sensitive. my eye shadow color says well with it. i do like it though and will probably continue to use it!

    This primer is a really nice base for the Red Apple Eyeshadow. It glides on smoothly does not irritate my eyes. It seems to help the Red Apply Eyeliner stay put as well. I highly recommend!
