Okay primer

I am use to using MAC painterly paint pot as a primer. This primer is much thinner and transparent which I loved. It however did not seem to make much of a difference with making my eye shadow stay vibrant longer, I can tell it definitely made a difference in how long my color lasted, it just didn't feel as if it looked as fresh at the end of the day

Mediocre, but does the job

Goes on smooth, easy to apply, but not my favorite primer. I felt that it did help my eye make-up stay smudge free; however, I'm not sold on how bright it kept the make-up. It certainly keeps the eye-make-up in place--don't forget to use a good make-up remover if you're using this!

lid it

nice smooth feeling, let dry completely before putting on mascara. a little goes a long way. i won't be needing to buy this because you use very little.

Not a fan

Too thick for my liking and I could hardly remove the product when it was time to take it off. I'd stick with SmashBox or another primer.

Necessary?

I didn't particularly need the product. I got it in my box, but I guess my logic is if my eyeshadow is already amazing, then why spend more money to get an identical look? It's a primer, but my eyeshadow stays in place and doesn't smudge or crease regardless.

Good, but not great.

I love primer and I have oily skin, so it is a necessity to keep my shadow from creasing and rubbing away. This primer works, but the texture of it is just a little greasy. I just wanted it to feel a little more matte.

Good, but my eyes are too sensitive for this.

My eyes are ridiculous and start itching with almost any kind of primer. I am sure that this would be great for someone who is comfortable wearing primer and wears eyeshadow every day!

Feels good

I tried this primer a few times and it was creamy and soothing going on. I didn't find it as effective as keeping eyeshadow put as my previous primer by urban decay so will not be purchasing.

nothing special

This takes a while to dry on your lid. I can't really tell the difference in terms of eyeshadow longevity when using this product vs not using anything. But to be fair, I pretty much feel that way about all eyelid primers.
