Best eye base?

Currently using a Bobbi Brown eye base but it seems to have dried up quickly this time, so fancy a change. Any recommendations? Would prefer it to be in a tube rather than a palette.

Am wondering about the Mac one but tried it today and it seemed a bit...greasy.

Thank you!

I use a neutral beige (can't remember the name) Mac paint pot every day, doesn't really get the chance to dry out. I like that it gives me a nice even base and covers the redness.
However, before that I used to love Too Faced Shadow Insurance. Found it lasted longer on me than Urban Decay Primer Potion and the tube means you can squidge most of the product out.

I use Mac's 'Painterly' paint pot. (Is this the one you use Jeff?) I have quite veiny red eyelids (ooh, don't I sound attrractive!) and a make up artist recommended it to me. It also seems to provide a good base for any colours.

Urban decay is amazing!

It is indeed ifonly smile
It does a grand job of covering my red eyelids too.
