Alright...

But nothing special. Doesn't blend that well in my opinion, looks kind of chalky. I didn't notice that my shadow lasted longer but my eye make up usually stays on pretty well even without a primer. I prefer Urban Decay's eyelid primer.

not a fan...
Sampled

I have one of those skin types that NEEDS an eye primer if I wear eye shadow since I tend to get a case of the eye lid oilies. I tried theBalm primer and did not like how greasy it feels. Before I put my eyeshadow on I have to wait before the product dries up a bit. When I'm in a hurry I don't have time to wait for that. I don't think I'll be buying this product..

Works but I don't like the feel
Sampled

This product felt greasy to me as a put it on. It worked fairly well, but the feel of it is enough to make me not want to purchase it. I will stick with my paint pots.

Good Primer, Irritated my skin
Sampled

I like the sheer texture of this product, and after I got it on, it did a good job as a primer (I am a dedicated primer user, I usually use Urban Decay). However! I have sensitive skin, and when I first applied the product it burned on my eyelids. For that reason... not for me.

primer

This product was fine. I don't usually use a primer, as I don't have trouble with my eye shadow staying put or creasing. It was a little unnecessary for me.

It's too creamy for my liking. I wish it was more matte.

Just OK
Sampled

This eyelid primer was OK, but very think and maybe I used too much. Even after I let it dry and applied my eye makeup it caked up on my makeup brush. I have another brand I've used previously and I'll probably stick to that!

Meh, it was alright.
Sampled

This product did make the colors pop, but it did not seem to last long enough for me. I currently use "Stay Put" and it lasts for hours. Good product, just not something I love.

Not sure

I am still on the fence about this product. It was a little sticky for my taste.
