Not bad.
Purchased

It works fairly well, but there are a few other eyelid primers I prefer. The price is fair. I doubt I'll buy this one again, but I don't regret buying the tube.

Decent primer, not the best.

I tried this product when getting it on discount and its ok. It doesn't last as long as my urban decay primer potion, but it'll do in a pinch.

What a great product
Purchased

This primer does not over dry my eyelids. My eyelids feel like they are moisturized and still capture and hold pigment well. Eyeshadow stays put all day long; I just retouch or darken the shades for night time as necessary.

Seemed to work well but about half way through the day my eye shadow was creasing and coming off. will likely go with a different product.

ok product
Purchased

It is very thin and doesnt keep eye make up on all day. I have used many primers and this is my least favorite because it doesnt keep my makeup on all day. Would not recommend to a friend.

not impressed
Purchased

This product didn't really do too much for me. It seemed oily and I didn't notice my eyeshadow lasting any longer than usual. I tried it for a couple weeks, but then forgot about it.

It's alright.

This primer is not as good as the Urban Decay version of the same product. It is oilier and does not go onto the eyelid with a matte finish immediately. I have to put this on first, then wait about 2 minutes to apply eyeliner or shadow.

Drying
Purchased

Sometimes my eyelids are very oily and this is great. If I put it on after water polo practice and the chlorine has already dried me out, my eyes become a little uncomfortable. Otherwise does it's job, similar to texture of POREfessional but for eyes.

average

i have used eye primers before many times and this has been my least favorite. i love the cute design but its just not very effective on my oily lids. i would think this is good for dry lids. i didnt finish the sample, but it lasted months. i gave the remainder to my best friend to try since she has never tried primers before.

didn't really notice that it made a difference but gave it to my sister and she uses it all the time.
