be patient, it's worth it!!

I finally figured out how to use this stuff right. To get the optimum benefit of this primer, you need to use enough to cover your full lid, close your eyes and let it set in the air for 30 seconds or so before putting on your shadow. That's a little bit of a hassle, but it's WORTH IT. This is the best primer I've ever used. I can sleep in my eye shadow (don't judge) and it still looks as good as when I first put it on the next morning.

The Best Eye Primer!
Purchased

I have tried a few eye primers, this by far is the best of them all! My eye makeup is still firmly in place the next morning if I don't get a chance to wipe it off the night before and it looks almost as perfect as it did when I first put it on. I will buy this over and over again! You only need need the size of a pin head for each eyelid!

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!

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!
