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 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful! I owned this product in Nude and finished the entire jar. For reference, I'm fair (usually Ivoire 110) and the Nude worked fine for me. I had no idea they carried other shades! Aquatique is a unique primer because it's creamy but still keeps your shadow looking nice and crease-proof for hours. When I finished this, I did move on to something else (cause I'm a makeup junkie), but sometimes I think about going back to this. It was really great, but I found it lasted about 7-8 hours and I needed something that kept my shadow going strong for a bit longer. Oh and the little pot lasts a looong time, so don't let the price discourage you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As promised! This product does exactly what it is marketed to do: it keeps your eye makeup in place until you take it off. I need my makeup to stick around for long days, and does the trick! It is a little heavy when it first comes out of the container, but if you use your finger to dab it onto your eye the heat of your body will warm it up and work it in beautifully. I also wear this product as a neutral eye base without any makeup. It covers up the discoloration on my eye lids but looks natural instead of giving the overly-perfected appearance some eye primers give when worn alone. Overall, I'm glad this product is in my makeup bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! This is a wonderful primer for a lot of reasons. It is very light and blends easily. My shadow wears well all day, never creases or fades and the color is more intense. It is easy to apply with my finger, but a concealer brush works well too and blends nicely.It also works well to give your lid a nice even tone and covers any darkness or redness you might have. I have heard people say that it dries out, but if you simply take your finger and swirl it around for a minute, it becomes light and creamy again! A tiny bit is all you need, so this product lasts FOREVER! It is a great value! One of my absolute fave products! I highly recommend :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WHY, WHY WHY DID YOU EVER DROP PERFECTING EYE SHADOW BASE??????? It was the BEST product for eye shadow base around!!! I bought 25 of the product when you were closing out on it. I am now up a creek, I'm using the last one I bought. I've tried and my friends have tried your replacement , Aquatique Waterproof Eyecolour Base. IT"S TERRIBLE!!!!!!!! I don't UNDERSTAND how Lancome dose not realize how BAD this product is compared to your older base product. The other was smooth and creamy this new one is like cement. I hear soooo many people say the same thing. Now I have to look for a NEW Eye Showdow base, which will not be Lancome's. I wish someone from Lanocom will ANSWER my question, WHY!!!!!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Aquatique vs. Ombre Perfecteur Eye Shadow Base A Lancome rep suggested I try the Aquatique Eye Shadow Base Product after Ombre Perfecteur had been discontinued. I can't say that I like it. It's texture is too dry for mature eyes and pulls my skin when I apply it. The Ombre Perfecteur was sooo much better, went on smoothly and never creased. On top of that the Aquatique gets under my nails when I try to use it and makes a mess on my fingers. I cannot recommend. Wish Lancome had given more thought to keeping the Ombre Perfecteur product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for controlling oily eyelids I do not use eyeshadow, however I have excessively oily eyelids that cause my eyeliner to smear and look oily all the time. I have tried numerous well known brands from powders to creams and nothing had worked until now. I have medium skin tone and first got the nude shade but that ended up being too light and it looked caked on and made all the lines and cracks very visible on my eyelids. I then reordered it in the color deep iwhich was the perfect shade for me. It looks very natural like I am wearing nothing at all. It lasts all day and I no longer find my eyeliner smudged underneath my eyebrows. No more shiny oily looking eyelids either. I use a small angled eyeshadow brush to apply and a little goes a long ways.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shadow base I have just purchased my second pot of the Aquatique waterproof base. I like this product because it has a good consistency but easy spreads on the eyelid for a thin layer. I like this base compared to other bases that I have used because it doesn't have any sort of glitter in it -- it is truly a base and not a multi-purpose base/shadow. It keeps my eye makeup in place all day and doesn't irritate my eyes or cause any breakouts in the eye area. It is also able to be applied with a small brush, like a mini foundation brush. My first pot lasted over a year and hopefully this one lasts just as long.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from aweful I was so disappointed when the ombre perfecteur was discontinued. I had to buy this stuff. I hate putting it on with my finger and it is heavier than what Im use to. I will not buy this again and am presently searching for a user friendly product.

do you have this product in regular not water proof?

Asked by: lori
I searched and it appears Aquatique only comes in waterproof. The product, however, is fabulous and keeps eyeshadow fresh and smudge free. I use Lancome eye makeup remover and it removes makeup very easily.

I purchased the Aquatique in 02 BEIGE PORCELAINE. It leaves a frosted metallic finish on my lids. Is this what it should look like?

I wanted a matte finish.
Asked by: Mick

I don't know if I'm using it wrong but everything I use this it separates on my eyelids and looks like powder and my eyeshadow would look streaky. :(
Asked by: Anonymous
I use Aquatique Primer in a neutral color. I smooth over entire eyelid, then I apply my powder eyeshadow. It never cakes or streaks.

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.
