Can't Tell if it Works
Sampled

I've been using this product daily for a few weeks now, thanks to a generous sample received in my January 2013 box. And I honestly cannot tell if it's helping or not. I guess my shadow goes on a little easier, but I haven't noticed if it helps keep my shadow that much more crease free. I don't use cream shadows, so maybe it would help those folks out more. But since I can't notice a huge difference, I won't be buying this one.

Lid Primer
Sampled

This lid primer went on well and a little goes a long way. It made my skin feel silky but did not enhance the color of my eye shadow like other lid primers do

I like that this stuff has a little shimmer in it and could be worn alone but I cannot really tell that my eyeshadow stays on a lot longer.

On the fence

Never used an eyelid primer before so I wasn't sure what to expect. It felt a bit sticky but seemed to help my eye shadow go on more smoothly. With more use, it might be something I would find necessary.

Other theBalm better

I generally LOVE LOVE LOVE "theBalm" products, but this just wasn't enough to sell me! I have always been a slave to Urban Decay's lid primer, so it would take a lot to convert! Their other products are great!

Okay

I didn't like the sticky/oily texture of the primer. It did keep shadow on longer than normal though the shadow applied darker than usual.

A so-so offering
Sampled

Not a terrible product, just not as good as the primer that I already use. My eyeshadow creased much quicker. I'll stick with my Urban Decay Eye Potion.

It's okay

I love the packaging, super cute. I've been using it daily since I got it and twice I've gotten creases still on my lids. It doesn't smell and feels light on which is good. It's an okay product.

Smooth Application, Drys Fast
Sampled

Still on the fence as I have a current favorite eye base but this is a nice product, smooth consistency and drys quickly, seems to keep shadows in place
