A Little Goeas A LONG Way!

This eyelid primer is fantastic! At first I thought it would be too oily for my shadows and end up creasing but nothing could be further from the truth! It dries dry and smooth - no oily feeling. I have used MAC's eye primer for about a decade and it would almost always crease when it dried. This works just as well, if not better, and I need barely use a pin-drop-sized amount for each eye.

I have had issues with eye shadow causing creases, and this kept my eye shadow fresh and in place all day! I am planning to buy some and use it on my wedding day!

A little goes a long way!

I had my doubts- I have used drugstore primers before without much success. However, its now 2pm, and a solid 8 hours after I put makeup on this morning, I still look AWESOME. Most of my eyeshadow and liner has usually floated down into undereye circles by this time in the day- it's all still exactly where I put it this morning, and still looks fresh.
I have relatively sparse brows, and what I really appreciate about this is that it helps my brow pencil and powder stay put too! I will definitely purchase!!

I thought this product was amazing. I began having problems with my eyeshadow creasing during the work day and this product stops creasing throughout the whole day.

Wow! What a difference

I never really thought about eye shadow primer, but it made a HUGE difference. The color stayed strong, it went on smooth and most of all, it stayed put. Normally, it feels like my shadow fades away in minutes. LOVE this product.

This stuff is great! My eyeshadow has stayed on significantly longer since using it--and no smudge! I've tried a similar product, but this one was waaaay better.

Eyeshadow tends to crease on my lids almost immediately after applying it - combination of my bone structure and having oily lids, I suppose. I only needed a very small amount of the primer and it made my shadow and liner last 8 hours. Love this!

This product has a lovely texture. Helps keep eye lids matte so shadow and liner stay. Great for false eyelashes too. Both strip and individual.
