Overly Sticky
Sampled

I thought this product was overly sticky and didn't allow for easy blending of my shadow. I've tried less product and it doesn't seem to lesson the effect.

Not for me.
Sampled

My eye shadow didn't go on evenly after using this product. Maybe I didn't use the product right.

I've had better
Sampled

My eye makeup started to breakdown and crease after 8 hours. I have used other primer that gave me 12+ hours of wear, so I was not impressed.

too greasy
Sampled

I have very oily eyelids and have a difficult time keeping eyeshadow and liner throughout my 12 hour work days. This primer was greasy and did not work for me at all. My eye makeup was gone early in the day and I would have been better with no primer at all. My $1 drugstore eye primer works much better than this

Not that great
Sampled

I was really hoping to like this primer. I have a few other items from theBalm that I love! This wasn't one of them. For a primer, it was just too oily and didn't do its job. Too bad- the packaging is super cute!

Just OK
Sampled

This eye primer is just OK. The packaging is too cute for me and the primer caked on me. Not my cup of tea.

not in love
Sampled

I've given this a few chances, but just can't love it. It does its job and doesn't crease, but on me, it was very dry - and would actually flake off. I also noticed it was difficult to get off while washing my face.

Just Not My Thing
Sampled

I get contact dermatitis easily and this primer seemed to make it act up. I used once without having any reaction and it seemed to make a real "canvas" for your eyeshadow. Not a bad product just something I can't use.

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.
