Good product.

Good product, but I don't find that primers make much of a difference. But, I would recommend for anyone that uses them regularly.

great product

I don't wear a lot of eye make up but when I do I like having this on, its easy and light to put on and keeps my makeup stay all day.

soso

It's just an ok product. If your going to spend the money go with a better brand like Mac. It doesn't hold a candle to my painter's pot.

Liked, but wouldn't re-purchase.

This eyelid primer is one that I wouldn't repurchase because there was nothing special about it. It kept my eyeshadow on for most of the day but I did realize that by the end of the day I did have traces of eyeliner in the crease of my eye. To this day I have not found one that I have liked better than my Urban Decay Primer Potion!

Meh

It worked as well as most do. It wasn't anything new or surprising. If I run out of my urban decay primer and I will finish using the sample I have.

don't wear primer so....

I tried it on my hands and it seems to do the job but I don't wear eye primer so it doesn't seem fair for me to judge hence my 3 stars to stay neutral? Definitely feels velvety on my hands with a powdery finish if others are curious. Cute playful packaging.

Its ok

used this for a week straight. I did notice a slight difference with how my eye shadow stayed on, but then it depended on which eye shadow i was wearing-some brands stayed on better then others. So not sure if that was because of this product or not. fun to try out but dont think I would purchase.

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!
