Eyeshadow Primers in Rotation

For years I haven't used eyeshadow primers for 2 reasons: I was lazy and younger! The older I have gotten they have become necessary for the increasingly more wrinkled and dry my eyelids have become. Even with straight up proof that they help, I tend to get lazy and forget them. So I do them no matter what now. These are a few of my favorites.
Urban Decay Primer Potion in Minor Sin (I had the original back in the day) is multipurpose for me because I can wear it alone for a sheer wash of color. Also with my eyeshadow for a better adherence and color help. It does have a sheen to it but doesn't make my crepey lids look worse!
Milani Eyeshadow Primer. Affordable, easy to use and leaves a skin colored wash on the lid. It covers veins and discoloration very well. A little goes a long way!

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Lid Lines. This has a doe foot applicator, a skintone color and definitely helps eyeshadows pop and last longer. My gripe with this is that the tube doesn't hold a lot of product and it's expensive. I feel like I get ripped off when I buy this and I love IT Cosmetics a LOT.

Christian Dior Backstage Eye Prime. Expensive, a little goes a long way. The color is also skintone and covers well. It's a bit thicker than other primers that I have used. Seriously, the less expensive primers perform just as well.

Urban Decay Primer Potion Anti-Aging. Another Urban Decay primer that does the same but with anti-aging properties that drew me in as my eyelids are "mature" :). Wears well, takes a little and definitely makes the eyeshadows stick and last.

I plan on trying some more drugstore primers in the future as I have found that the less expensive products in some categories perform just as well as high end. What are your favorite eye primers? Would love to know your thoughts!
