Smooth Canvas - Long-Wear Shadow Primer

Say eye do to this multipurpose shadow primer and give lids a smooth, even-toned surface for seamless application of your favorite powder or cream eyeshadows. The super-long-wearing formula -- which goes on creamy and dries to a soft matte finish -- also hides imperfections and works as an easy-to-blend eyeshadow on its own. It's available in four pale, matte shades -- pink, peach, and yellow, plus an icy white shimmer -- to suit a variety of complexions and makeup looks.

Great product! The shade "bisque" is a dupe for M•A•C's paint pot in the shade "soft ochre".

My FAVORITE overall makeup product I have EVER used...EVER! BUY BUY BUY!!
I have already reviewed this product not after using for 2 weeks now, I have to say this is my absolute favorite makeup item I have ever bought! I have Bisque. It's a MAC soft ochre dupe. Completely covers blue/dark veins on lids. Terrified it will be discontinued. Eye shadows blend out smoothly and perfectly on this flawless canvas. Fell asleep in makeup last night and my eyeshadow is still perfect this morning. Someone needs an award for this. Will buy other colors. IN LOVE!!! Ty, ty, ty!
After 18hrs of wear, and falling asleep in makeup. This stuff is AMAZING!

dupe for mac paint pots
amazing dupe for mac paint pots but so much cheaper. I have the 3 lightest shades and i stopped using my urban decay primer potion because I prefer these so much more. they work amazing for primers and they are also great for carving out your brows if you don't like the intense brow highlight that concealer gives. highly recommended

These are amazing! Total dupes for my paint pots and I will forever be a BH Cosmetics girl but these are Holy Grail status! Bisque is better than my MAC soft ochre even though mine came dried out. Malt is a dupe for painterly, and Veil is a gorgeous shimmer champagne that I love when I use a shimmer on the lids. Amazing, amazing and I'll never spend $20 on a paint pot again!

Big container
I have huge problems finding eye shadow primer that does not pill on my eyelids -- this stuff is awesome. If you have issues with primer pilling on your eyelids -- I highly recommend. Very pleased with this product.

Love it
I ordered this in Malt and I absolutely love it! It dries quickly and creates a really nice base for eyeshadow. It does everything it's supposed to! I sweat very easily which makes my eyeshadow streaky and come off but I put this on before my eyeshadow on a day out and no streaking or anything! Don't waste your money on $20 shadow primer when this one is perfect

Bh has done it again! Practically a dupe for Mac paint pot, and you cannot go wrong with the price. Paired with a bh eyeshadow this product is killer!

Not sure why no one has compared this to Mac paint pot ...very similar except I like this better the Mac accentuated dry patches I didn't know I had returned it and plus you cant beat the price will repurchase again and again

I like it
Well I purchased this as a dupe for Mac soft ocher. It works just fine. No creases kept my eyeshadow bright. I don't like the jar. It's hard to get the product out with your finger if u have nails. I would buy again if I was placing an other order and needed more I would buy again.

Which shade would suit an African woman. Who isn't dark or too fair?
Gloria A on Nov 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would say Malt which is like my Mac brand Painterly. It's in the middle for everyday shades. You would use the Bisque, because it is lighter, to make you're smokey eye pop.

How does this work for super oily lids?
A shopper on Aug 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I use it, in Veil, and I'm oily. I love it, I'm a primer junkie and this is my all time favorite. The 1st time I received it, it was all dried up, I called customer service and they sent another one out right away. Just make sure to put lid on tight after use.

Liz R on Jul 28, 2017
