Does what it says!

I have used this product a few times since it arrived and it really makes my eye makeup stay put. I even fell asleep after a party with my makeup on and woke up the next morning with everything still in place.

Great Product
Sampled

I got a sample of this in January's box so I have been using it instead of my normal brand (Urban Decay). I am definitely going to make the switch to the Balm product-it feels great and works very well. I fell asleep with my makeup on the other night (very bad, I know) and I woke up with my eye makeup still intact. I'm really pleased with the product.

Had no idea...
Sampled

All right so I'm new at this whole pampering, girly girl thing. I had no idea that this type of product existed, lol. I don't typically have an issue with creasing but I am one of those people who my makeup just vanishes halfway through the night. First time ever that my eyes looked the same at bedtime as they did at the start of the night. I'm sold!

Used the product and my shadow lasted all day! It also made my gel liner go on smoother. Pretty great product!

I love The Balm

I recently got the Urban Decay primer and it made such a difference on what i had already thought was good shadow. This product from The Balm (a lesser known brand, to me) is comparable. It glides on w a finger really easily and the shadow just sits right on top of it.

Good job BB!

This product is great!

I like this primer for the primary reason that the formula is clear! I have a tan skin tone, so most "skin tone" primers do not match my eyelids. The clear formula makes it easier for me to wear eyeshadow without worrying if the primer is completely covered up.

Felt a little thick, but worked well

I didn't love the texture, but it worked well to hold my shadow in place.

Stays well, little oily
Sampled

This worked well to make sure your eye shadow doesn't crease throughout the day. It feels a little oily, and you have to be careful about making sure it is put on evenly. If not, the eyeshadow can be darker in some spots than others.

AMAZING STUFF!
Sampled

have really oily skin and have trouble keeping my eyeshadow to stay. This was an amazing product. As soon as my sample runs out, I"ll be running straight here to buy some more!!

My eyeshadow stayed over 15 HOURS! without a crease or smudge. I was blown away!
