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.

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.

pretty good

this base worked well under my eye makeup. Lasted all day. Don't put to much on...you just need a little bit...or it will be too cakey. Nice without eye shadow too.

I like its purpose

I love the idea of a primer- for me- and I use one daily- but I like my primer to have the abiltiy to provide a base color to even out eye skin tone- so the shadow color is true. This would be perfect for someone who doesn't need that coverage.

it's okay

It's a little oily, but ok. Good as a back-up, for I prefer Urban Decay.

I do like this, but I need to use for a another week or two to decide. The sample size is great.

Iffy
Sampled

I'm Asian so applying eyeshadow is a bit tricky. This balm definitely helped keep the eyeshadow on, but it made it harder for me to blend my eye shadow in leaving my lids with a dramatic line of shadow instead of a blended in look.

Okay

I wasn't really impressed with this product. I put some on with a very dark eye shadow over it then went out for 45 minutes, and when I came home it looked like I wasn't even wearing eye shadow. It definitely didn't keep the shadow from smudging. I'm willing to try it again to see if maybe I didn't use enough, but I was not happy with it on the first try.
