Nice product, but...

I am an avid fan of BareMinerals make-up and skin care, so I'm usually less interested in actual make-up that comes in my BirchBox monthlies.. This product is great, works, and is high-quality, but it is too similar to my BareMinerals Eye Primer to invest in it... Otherwise I recommend it. I tried on a day where I left my bareminerals at a friend's, and it was lovely. Held Sephora eyeshadow all day without creasing or fading.

Better than nothing, but...

Until I got this I had not been using an eyelid primer. This definitely made a difference in the staying power of my shadow. Unfortunately, by mid-day my lids looked pretty greasy, much like the texture of the product and the shadow got a little slick looking. I've moved on to Urban Decay's lid primer and have much better staying power and no creasing or shine. Give it a try, but it's not for everyone...

Decent

This kept my eyeshadow on, but I feel like there wasn't anything special about this one to justify spending the extra money

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.

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.
