So Impressed!

I was running low on my high-end (and much pricier) eye primer so I checked the Birchbox website to see what else was out there. The most obvious thing that jumped out to me first was the price of this product. MUCH cheaper than a lot of its competitors. I had to try at least try it to see.

So I did this morning. To do a fair clinical trial, I used my regular primer on the left eye and this one on my right. I am blown away by how little makeup it took for the same effect with this product! No creases and the color is more intense. I dare say I used half of the shadow on the Coastal Scents eye, and needed half of the primer to coat my lid.

Needless to say, this will be a permanent switch for me.

Literally the worst.

Am always looking for a new primer but this one did not do well. It came out so liquidity, and felt so oily on my skin. Yikes.

This is my favorite shadow primer. It's super cheap, goes on easy, and your color will last all day. I'm a big user of eyeshadow, and I usually spend $20 for primer. This stuff is just as good for less than half the price. I would recommend to any eyeshadow junkie. I've bought it 4 times in a row and will continue to do so whenever I run out.

Works great!

I was skeptical that primer would make a difference but it really does! My eyeshadow has completely stayed put, no smudging or weird creases - I do also use a setting spray, but without a primer my eyeshadow smears and starts to fall under my eyes. It does feel a little greasy going on as other reviews have noted, but the feeling goes away and the product works as intended so I don't really mind. I would definitely buy this again.

Good for price, not quality

I bought this just to put my shipment over a certain amount for free shipping. It's alright, but not as good as some other brands I've used. Also, when you don't use it all the time it kind of separates in the bottle and you have to pour a bunch out and shake it to get it working again. Would not buy again.
