Beauty blogger reviews Benefit Cosmetics Air Patrol BB Cream Eyelid Primer SPF 20 
I recently wrote about the key to long lasting make-up, which you can have a gander at here. One of the points I made in this post referred to the importance of primers.
At the end of the day, if you want your make-up to stay efficiently in
place and to not slide or disappear from your face, primers are
essential. 
The latest offering brought to you by Benefit Cosmetics is their Air Patrol BB Cream Eyelid Primer a bit of a mouthful – but a fantastic little product.

Why do I love this?
Awesome packaging as usual, but this aside, albeit not essential in your make-up kit it definitely fills  a gap in the market. Our eyes are so delicate and we need to look after them the best way we can. We wear SPF on our skin, but never before have I seen one created for our eye lids. This Air Patrol Eye Lid Primer contains SPF 20 !!! I still will feel the need to wear sunglasses, obviously,  but I just love the fact I know my eyes are being protected. 
The formula is very lightweight and feels really soothing, you apply this before your eye make-up all over the eye area, and as well as priming the lids so that your eye shadow does not crease, it also creates a fresh canvas to work upon – neutralising and colour correcting any uneven tones.  I
also like the consistency of the texture, as some of my eye primers are
either in a little pot and dry up really easily and go crusty looking,
or they are really watery. Loving the silicone applicator, as this is much more hygienic than using just your fingers. Only niggle with anything twist up – you never ruddy know when you are running out. 

Do you guys use an eye primer? What are your thoughts? An essential or a gimmick?
