An inexpensive primer that works

My new favorite. Good enough to make me stop using ChapStick on my eye lids.

my savior

I have beyond oily eyelids, which are the banes of my existence and I hate wasting the beautiful eyeshadows I've amassed when I know even the most beloved Insurance and Potion type eyelid primers will fail me and my eyeshadow will be creased by the time I arrive wherever I'm going that day. It's hard to want to put on eyeshadow if I know it'll be a creased mess 30 minutes later!

I've had a sample of this laying around for a very very long time. I decided on a whim to give it a shot today, and I can't believe I've had this magic primer sitting in a box all this time. 12 hot southern hours after putting on a highly pigmented shimmery copper eyeshadow and it was looking fresh and crease-free. Hallelujah.

Keeps my eye makeup looking great.
Purchased

I bought this because I was tired of looking like I wasn't wearing eye makeup by the end of the night. It works well to keep it on. I do make sure I let it dry for a minute before applying any eye makeup.

READ ME!

I know the rules about sleeping with make up on. However, I used this primer and put on eyeshadow at 7 AM yesterday morning, worked all day, came home, cried, went to bed, and woke up this morning with my eyeshadow still PERFECT.

Did Not Keep My Shadow On
SampledPurchased

I still struggle to find a primer that holds my shadow on all day. No matter what I do it ends up creasing mid day and this product was no different. I will say it held it better than most but for the cost I wish it held it more. My go to is still a drug store brand, and sad to say it held up better than this did.

Never knew I needed it until I received it!!

I have never tried an eyelid primer prior to receiving a sample of this product, and WOW! I have deepset, but not quite hooded eyes, and this product really helped keep everything in place! It soaked in very quickly so I didn't have to wait to start working on the rest of my look!

Wonderful product
Purchased

I've always had problems with eye shadow creasing in my eyes and basically feeling and looking greasy and/or oily. Never would stay on all day. I bought this and am addicted to it, I wear more eye shadow now, and it lasts all day! I also find you don't need a whole lot, or at least I don't. This tube should last me a while! LOVE IT!

Love It!

I've never used an eye shadow primer before, but when I got the sample and tried it I was amazed at how well it held up (even after an end of the day workout). No crease and my eye shadow and liner stayed in place! Definitely going to purchase the full size when the sample runs out.
