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.
Purchased

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.

the Balm

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

Pretty decent

I would say that this primer is okay. It worked well, but it wasn't extraordinary. Overall, I liked it. and I love everything from the Balm.

Good primer, but not perfect
Purchased

This is a decent, easy-glide primer that is easily applied but does not keep my shadow from fading as much as I'd hoped.

Works Ok, but oily

I've been using Lorac's primer forever, so I was a bit excited to try something new. While the pigment stayed good with this product, it was initially very oily when I put it on. It isn't very thick. I think I'll stick to Lorac for now.

Great for long days...

I don't normally use products like this....it always seems like an "extra" to me... and i try to keep my beauty process as simple as possible. but after receiving it in my January Birchbox I gave it a try. Its definitely not something i would use every day... but works great for those long days you need your makeup to last. Its been great as the temp has warmed up this summer.

Decent but Not the Best

This product helps to keep your shadow on but I don't like it as much as my Urban Decay Eye Primer. That product is so superior but this is nice if you want a cheaper version.
