Phrases Chosen: best for long lasting eye color
I've love this product for ~10 years, though I will admit I preferred it in the twist-stick form a little more (just for ease of application). I've literally fallen asleep with my bareMinerals eye colors on and woken up looking like I did the night before. It works that well! It easily makes your eye shadows last all night, if not longer. It's the only eyelid primer I've found with this level of staying power.

Does this primer change the color of your BE eye shadows?
I really like the color of my BE eye shadows just as they are; will the Brightening Pearl primer change their color on my eyelid? If so, will it make them lighter, darker or just different somehow?
Sorry, to add, I would try the original, non-brightening one, it has no shimmer, so shouldn't change the color/appearance of any eye colors. It looks a little weird if you try to put matte shadows on top of the brightening ones, though I sometimes do it to try to tone it down.

I'm not sure I've tried the Brightening Pearl, but I have the Brightening and the original, and the Brightening is VERY shimmery in my opinion, and it might lighten the colors a little, but mainly it appears as its own shimmery neutral color layer below my other colors.

How to apply the primer?
This is my first time getting an eyelid primer it came in the flirty & fabulous kit that I baught and im unsure on how to really use this
You put it on (I use my finger to spread) before you put on your bareMineral eye colors. It helps them last a lot longer and stay more in place in my opinion.

Is this the same formulation as the original?
Is this just a change in packaging?
yes. I did prefer the original packaging, but it's the same product.

Why would I need to use this if I'm already using the eyecolor from bare essencials?
Do you apply this product before using the eyecolor or do you use this product in place of the eyecolor? I'm a little confused about the wholr prime time eyelid primer situation.
Before! It helps them last a lot longer. This product is without any extra color (like the primer shadows). It is a neutral lighter skin-tone color. The primer shadows can be used under shadows or alone as they have their own pigments. The "brightening" can also be used alone or under other shadows, because it is a neutral shimmery color.

How does this compare to Urban Decay primer potion?
Is this all natural ingredients?
I think it works much better. I've literally fallen asleep with this and bareMinerals eye shadows on and woken up looking the same (and I'm a tosser and turner). I'm not sure how well it works with non-bareMinerals eye shadows cause I tend to save it for them. I believe all of bareMinerals stuff is all natural?
