#1 Yves Saint Laurent Beaute Couture Eye Primer, $50
This portable perfection in a pot promises to seal in your shadows for a good 16 hours – and by golly, as far as that claim is concerned, this baby delivers in spades. This industrial-strength hard worker was sturdy enough to hold up to snuff until I stumbled back into bed – a fact made more impressive given how I had slapped it onto my lids before a sweaty sundown soiree and saw no need for mid-party touch-ups.
Even better, the beguilingly bare hue means you can wear this “neat” sans shadows for a hint of a tint that’s perfect for no-makeup makeup days. Sidenote: The formula is fortified with moisture magnets that makes it deeply quenching for desiccated skin, so much so that it functions almost like a filler in erasing fine lines under my eyes. Whoo-hoo!
