Nice!

I don't typically wear eye shadow on a daily basis but this product did a good job when going out and wearing slightly heavier eye makeup, held it on all night and came off easily with a makeup remover wipe.

Excellent texture.

A nice primer , in The Balm's usual adorable packaging. This sample will go far. The texture is nice, and drew a bit dewy...perfect for an eyelid primer !

Love it!

I really liked this product. It also brightens/enhances your eye make-up so you do not need to use as much make-up to get your desired affect.

Eye primer

Goes on clear when it looks like it would have a tint. Does a pretty good job of keeping the shadow on all day and not clumping eyeliner and makeup at the crease of the lid.

Neutral

Things I like: allows eye shadow to stick for longer wear and enhances color. Things I dislike: no color or shimmer, strange waterproof feeling.

feels good but is it necessary?
Sampled

I thought this eyelid primer felt soft and velvety smooth but I just don't feel like an eyelid primer is necessary. I really don't have problems with the shadows I use staying "bright and smudge-free for hours" so I don't think this product would be something that I would purchase.

Not bad.

It works fairly well, but there are a few other eyelid primers I prefer. The price is fair. I doubt I'll buy this one again, but I don't regret buying the tube.

Decent primer, not the best.

I tried this product when getting it on discount and its ok. It doesn't last as long as my urban decay primer potion, but it'll do in a pinch.

What a great product
Purchased

This primer does not over dry my eyelids. My eyelids feel like they are moisturized and still capture and hold pigment well. Eyeshadow stays put all day long; I just retouch or darken the shades for night time as necessary.

just ok
Purchased

Seemed to work well but about half way through the day my eye shadow was creasing and coming off. will likely go with a different product.
