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
Sampled

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.

Okay Product

The Balm has some great products, but this one was just so-so for me. The formula seemed too creamy to me-- it almost slid off my eyes (ironic considering what the product is!). I'm currently in love with NARS' eye primer so it'll take something pretty spectacular for me to switch. Overall, not terrible though!

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.
