Battle of the Budget Eye Primers

W7 Prime Magic Eye Primer, £1.99
MUA Pro Base Eye Primer, £2.50

After weeks, maybe months, of checking Superdrug for the MUA Pro Base Eye Primer I finally found it last week! It is also now in stock on the Superdrug website for anyone who can't find it in their local store.

I have been using the W7 primer since I bought it in November but I wanted to test the MUA version as well. I decided that the best way to compare them would be a head-to-head test.

My plan for today is to use on on my left eye and the other on my right eye. I will then apply the same eyeshadow and see which one lasts best throughout the day.

The MUA primer is much thicker and as you can see it is more beige coloured, whereas the W7 primer is a lot more liquidy and has a pale pink colouring. I find that the MUA primer feels nicer to apply and it's easier to blend across my eyelid. The eyeshadows I used today were from the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette - shades Nooner and Liar. At the end of the day (8am - 7pm) the results were:


As you can see, the W7 shadow has creased considerably more - the crease on the MUA is much less visible.

Overall I prefer the MUA primer, I would definitely recommend it.
