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.

Kind of Greasy

At first I thought it felt greasy when it was on my eyelids, but it does a decent job of making your eyeshadow last through the day/night!

Good, but nothing special

It's not a bad product, but I don't think I would use it regularly. A little does go a long way, which I like, but there are other brands that I prefer more.

I've used better

It does the job for the most part, but it creases and crumbles itself! It sort of holds your eye make up in place, but you have to wait until it's dry, and then when it's dry, its cakey.

Too Slippery

I didnt notice better staying power with this then any other brand, It just seemed way to slick when I put it on
