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.

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.

The best!

I used this product after washing and moisturung my face. Stippled the eye shadow on after a ten second break and it NEVER budged. No creases, no fading, just vibrant eye shadow all day long!

I like this primer
Purchased

I received a sample of this in my March box and decided right away to order the full size. I love the texture and how silky this eye primer goes on. Every shadow I've used with this has stayed put. I'm exploring more theBalm products in the near future. Thanks again to Birchbox for introducing me to theBalm !

great lid primer

I received this in a mystery sample pack and am very pleased with it. A little bit goes a long way, this sample will last a long time. It's not as thick a formula as I'd expected, so it absorbs quickly and easily and actually feels like it's moisturizing my lids. Shadow and liner stayed in place all night with no creasing. Thanks Birchbox!

The Balm wins again
Purchased

This is the best primer, by far, that I've tried. A teeny tiny dot is all I need, and my eyeshadow stays put. I got this yesterday, tried it today, and my eyeshadow has not budged. No creases, no fallout, nada. I used another brand prior to this and just thought creasing and smudging was a part of life for me. Nope. I won't be without this again.

How does it not have 5 stars??

I have the oiliest eyelids in the world. I read reviews and bought the Smashbox primer and even that primer doesn't hold certain eyeliners and any eyeshadow that isn't a long wear "no primer needed" cream. I got a sample of this in a bonus pack and I've tested it with eyeliners that my other primer can't even hold. My eyeshadow and eyeliner does not budge after 11 hours. Finally I can open myself up to something other than stay proof liquid eyeliner!
