Not all eye shadow primers are created equal. But this primer makes promises it can keep—long-lasting shadow wear and vibrancy, with absolutely no creasing. The silky-smooth, waterproof formula holds pigment in place and delivers nude, barely-there color that evens out eyelids and leaves them with a natural, matte finish. Apply with fingertips under your favorite Lancôme shadow. Fragrance-free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Foundation I've used Aquatique for a long time and keep coming back to it because it provides a great basis for eye shadow which then can be applied very smoothly and evenly. It keeps the shadow in place all day long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Proven performer! I have been using this eyeshadow base for 2.5 decades. Yes I promise you that was not a typo, I have used it for over 25 years. It is the best eyeshadow base that I have found, and a little bit goes a long way. I typically only go through one jar a year, with almost daily use. It really keeps my eyeshadow stay in place all day, and the pigments are more intense than they are if you only put the eyeshadow on without using the base. I was very saddened to hear that it was discontinued by the Lancome rep. at a local Ulta location. Perhaps the rep meant it was discontinued in Ulta locations and not all Lancome retailers. Whatever the case maybe, I highly recommend this product to everyone, it's truly fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic primer I love the creaminess of this primer. It just glides on. Eye shadow stays put all day long. But the base color is so nice it can be worn alone on a light makeup day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great eye shadow base I recently purchased this based on the other reviews. They were right. It is a great product. It has just a bit of coverage to make for a smooth base. The eye shadow goes on smooth and blends easily. Some other products (Urban Decay) grab the shadow and makes it difficult to blend, but this keeps the shadow on all day and makes it easy to get the exact look I want. It doesn't make your eyelid dry either so the end result is wonderful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beige Ivoire Aquatique Extremely disappointed to no longer be able to get the Beige Ivoire Aquatique. That's been my favorite and is perfect for those of us with fair skin. Nude is just too dark for me. Please bring it back - it's been one of my favorite products!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bring back shades 01 and 02 Love love love this product but so disappointed that it is impossible to find 01 and 02 shades anywhere. Really hoping Lancôme has not discontinued these shades and that they’ll be readily available soon. A must have in my makeup routine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I've been looking for! I love Aquatique. True to write-up, it DOES NOT crease. It's great! I wear it alone quite often and it gives a very natural look. When I do use color, the color goes on true to shade and lasts all day. Great little primer!
Date published: 2020-01-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawless This is my all time favorite eye primer in any shade! It creates the perfect canvas for eyeshadows that will last entire day and keep pigment. If you have discoloring or oily lids, this primer solves those problems until you wash it off. Wear it alone or as a vase, a little goes a long way and makes a big difference!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I've used this product for years, underneath my eye shadow, and I love how it keeps my eye shadow in place, all day. No creasing, or fading, even in 100deg, sweaty days. Definitely recommend! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best eyeshadow primer! I love this primer. Can use alone or under eyeshadow. Was getting panicky when I couldn’t get it for a few months. Looks like they discontinued some of the shades. I preferred the lighter shade, but am satisfied with the nude that is still available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you again Lancome! I'm in love with this product! Thank you Lancome for providing a variety of eyebase colors. So glad I have this product and think it looks good on me. I can wear it as an eye shadow substitute and it blends in perfectly with my skin color not turning orange while also keeping the shadow intact and vibrant. It looks like a no-makeup look while masking fatigue. I love its smooth consistency. No tugging is needed and it can be applied with an eyeshadow brush. It makes my eyes look more vibrant, healthier and less tired.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aquatique I like this product very much. I recently fell and got a pretty bad black eye. The early stages of the discoloration was awful. It helped a little then, but when the eye started healing, the product really did the trick. It really covered the spot quite well. I am very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Eye Shadow Primer! I have been using this product for more years than I can count and am very disappointed it has been discontinued. PLEASE BRING BACK 02! As a long time Lancome customer, it is frustrating to see great products discontinued and not replaced with an item of equal (or better) quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All-time Favorite Product I was on a rampage when they discontinued. This is THE BEST eyeshadow base. I will even forgo eyeshadow sometimes because this brightens so well with good coverage. The 03 Nude shade has yellow undertones. Bring back the 02 Beige Porcelaine!

I cannot find this anywhere in a 5. I would guess that it has be discontinued?? Can someone give me an answer to that question please Thanks in advance

Asked by: Lisa*
Bonjour Lisa! Unfortunately shade 05 is out of stock and we do not have an update yet on when this shade will return. We understand how frustrating it can be when a shade we have used is not available for purchase. We suggest using the next shade down, which is our 03 Nude. The silky-smooth, waterproof formula holds pigment in place and delivers nude, barely-there color that evens out eyelids and leaves them with a natural, matte finish.

I am unable to find this, & on your website it says out of stock. When will it be back in stock, & will it be back in stores then?

Asked by: AStarr
Bonjour! We do apologize that Aquatique has been unavailable. We suggest trying our Prime It Boost It. It is a colorless, all-day, life-proof eyeshadow primer. It also enhance eye makeup results! Suitable for all skin tones, this colorless formula not only intensifies the color of your eyeshadow, but also extends the wear for up to 14 hours. We hope you give this product a try!

Eye base makes my eye shadow streaky...

I recently purchased this product and I noticed it's a newer 'improved' nude base. I have been purchasing this product for years and have loved it. However, this time, it seems really thin and when I put on my eye shadow my eye shadow streaks... Almost like it's being wiped off with make-up remover. I have tried it several times and it still does it. So, to problem-solve I used the last bit of the old base I had and it was fine... Is anyone having problems with this? Suggestions? Don't confuse the old base with the newer one (new container and looks like less , but I'm sure is the same, and thinner... Thanks!
Asked by: LittleBee123
Mine streaked when I first started using this but when I add a small layer evenly with a concealer brush, let it dry and then add another one, it is even.

Oil Free

Is it oil free?
Asked by: JennyS
I have only skin so bad in the summer humidity that I use this to keep the eyeshadow on my eyelids. I don't know how to pronounce all the ingredients in this, much less what they are, but it, I know from experience, there is no oil in it.

What shade of eyecolour base should I use for my medium skin tone?

Asked by: Mlriley42
Nude is the best base for medium skin tone. Deep is a good option also if you to look like you're not wearing makeup but draw more attention to your eyes when not wearing eyeshadow. Nude has a neutral undertone while deep has a peach undertone.

which eye colour base should I use

if my makeup is the Teint Miracle Bisque 2 C? Thanks!
Asked by: TechFan
I think #2 Beige porcelain would be the best color for you. If you want your primer to be lighter than your skin(to highlight your eye naturally etc) the ivore would great. The darker colors are also good if you want a super natural waterproof look.

Eye primer shade for dark skin

I use the 550 shade for foundation. Which shade for eye primer should I use?
Asked by: Awablue
I think that it depends on the look that you are after. I use a light one so that it highlights the area in the arch of my lids making them stand out. However, you may find that you wish to be more natural. Think of it as an eyeshadow with benefits. It WILL make your shadow and liner adhere and last longer but the color is up to you as to what look you are trying to achieve.

Proper use of an item

I have a container of NUDE primer. When I have used this item as a primer it seems to go on heavy and does not smooth out so that I can add a color over it. Am I using this incorrectly?
Asked by: JoHendrie
Yes, you are obviously using way to much product. You only need to use a minimal amount to get the best results. Use a primer brush to apply it and only apply a thin layer.

can i mix aquatique with a lancome eye moisture product. It is too thick and pasty for my 58 year old eyes.

mature skin combination skin sensitive skin
Asked by: nwhe54
I believe since the skin around the eye area is very delicate, I would recommend that you maybe use the Maquicomplet concealer in porcelaine. This product is very easy to use as a primer for your shadow and holds up quite well. You will also find that it is much easier to wash off as well. I have been using concealer for several year now and have not had a problem, I'm now 63 year of age, and have been using concealer since I was approx. 40 years of age.

Could you please tells us if this product is EVER coming back in any color other than the NUDE? I've purchased the primer you replaced this with and never will again... it's nott half the product this is and,t thought you should know that. Thank you.
