Love it!

This makes my eyeshadow look fantastic! The primer really keeps my eyeshadow on all day, without it looking greasy. I recommended this to my sister and she loves it too!

Goes on very smoothly, keeps your shadows looking fresh and the way you applied them. Great product, as are all of their line!

Creamy formula, but nothing special
Sampled

I was not very impressed with this eyelid primer. The formula was creamy, almost too creamy, but did go on smoothly. I do not think it added any staying power to my eye shadow.

Great primer
Purchased

I have tried Urban Decay, which is a bit thick but holds shadow like a dream. I have also tried Nars eyeshadow primer, which comes in a tube with wand system that doesn't allow you to use up all the product. Now I have tried this little gem, Put A Lid On It. This stuff goes on silky smooth, holds shadow in place, makes shadow colors more vivid, and doesn't leave and funky edges; where the primer ends and eyeshadow extends past. Great primer.

Favorite primer
SampledPurchased

Best primer I've ever used! My eye makeup rarely stays put so I have tried many different primers - theBalm's product seems to be the only one that stays all day. My new go-to product for everyday!

oily eyelids
Purchased

I've bought a lot of products from the Birchbox ship, this was a rare bust. I got it several months ago and have used it numerous times. All it does is make my eyelids feel oily. Eyeshadow disappears within a couple of hours. Eyeliner pencils can't get any traction, and skip. Eyeliner powder transfers right up to my under-brow area. I mean, you can see the whole line up there. Kind of amazing. And not in a good way. I'm giving up on it.

Excellent primer
Sampled

I resisted primers for a long time. This totally changed my mind. I love how it makes eye shadow look. It helps with melting on hot days! I rode into work and my eye makeup still looked fresh!! Well worth the price, and a little goes a long way!

A must!

I am always surprised at the staying power this primer has. I'm new to the world of primer's and this has become a daily staple. A small amount goes a long way, even lasting through a night of dancing!

This is a great primer. I have extremely oily lids, and this cream helps my liner stay in place all day.

CHANGED MY LIFE. THIS IS THE BEST
Purchased

I always, always had eyeshadow clumped in my crease by the end of the day no matter what. I guess I have greasy eyelids? I don't know. What matters is that since I started using this product, my eyeshadow stays put longer than I would ever need it to. I will never stop using this product, it is incredible. Definitely worth the price
