Decent but Not the Best

This product helps to keep your shadow on but I don't like it as much as my Urban Decay Eye Primer. That product is so superior but this is nice if you want a cheaper version.

Just Okay

Silky feel, but it didn't seem to do the job. It got into the crease of my eye and settled there. Wouldn't purchase again.

does what it says!

Really helps eyeshadow stay put... and never come off! I don't like how hard it is to remove at the end of the day, or if I make a mistake applying.

Works but not well enough for the cost

My eyeshadow doesn't smear or crease when I use it but it didn't help my eyeshadow to pop. There are other primers that are cheaper and do a better job.

Irritated my eyelids

I got puffy spots on my eyelids, but I have sensitive skin. Seemed to work but clearly not for me.

neat product

leaves my eye lid a little wet and thus make my eye shadow a different color. But sometimes thats cool.

oily but works well

I did think the product worked well and I'm a big fan of eye shadow primers. My only complaint is that it was pretty oily. Good thing i covered it up with eye shadow.

Didn't love this as much as I wanted to

Loved the packaging but the product didn't do much for me. I've tried a lot of eye shadow primer and this one was a little too thin for me.

YES!

I would definitely buy and use this product often! It goes on nice and smooth and my eyeshadow stayed on all day!

Decent primer

I felt that this was a decent primer. I've received others through Birchbox that I felt "sealed" my eye makeup a lot better. However, I felt this was more moisturizing to my eye area than others.
