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

Great eye primer
Sampled

I had never given eye primers a second thought until I tried this sample in my box. It does truly help your eye makeup stay on better and last longer, it also gives your eye lids a smooth base on which to start. As soon as I run out I will buy a full version of this.
