Are your eyelids as oily as Jermaine Jackson? If you find your eyeshadow just doesn't stay on your oily lids, you might wanna try a paint pot by MAC ($16.50). Not only do they apply smoothly and dry quickly, but they can make your eyeshadows so much more vibrant. I prefer them over other types of eye primers, but it's up to you. I still love my UDPP and Too Faced Shadow Insurance, but I reach for my paint pots a lot more. Some of the shades are so pretty you could wear them alone (like Indianwood and Rubenesque), and some really enhance any duochrome shadow you might be wearing. Artifact paint pot looks amazing with Beauty Marked eyeshadow, and Pink Pearl pigment over Delft?? Gorgeous. There are so many things you can do with paint pots, it's not even funny. I don't have every single one, but I have a pretty good variety to start with (and will quietly hunt for the ones I don't have and need). Check out these swatches so you know what they look like on darker skin.
