I’m pretty biased because I love everything I try from surreal, but I wanted to give myself time to try this with several of her shadows before airing my final thoughts. This stuff is seriously “awesomesauce!” But really! I’ve tried it with the duochrome shadows (mermaid, mythical, princess bride, aztec) and I cannot believe how little you need to get insane color payoff. I used to use the NYX glitter primer but now this mixing medium eliminates that step! I’ve also tried it with her interstellar collection, and I’m in awe. You literally only need one swipe and it retains the entire color shift. Also, my eyes are hooded so things tend to crease. I never had a problem with creasing even after an 8 hour work day. It also works super well with her black base shadows (like deep space, solar flare, eclipse) it helps the shimmer stand out but it retains the opacity. This is now gonna be a staple in my makeup kit. It far surpasses any other sticky bases/primers I’ve tried. Another upside is you do have some working time with it before it dries down, so you can easily blend harsh edges away. (In this pic I used the awesomesauce with Andromeda and Princess Bride)
At first I was very shy with the Awesome sauce, but you have to put more in than you think and I am loving it so much!
