This eyelid primer is the Thelma to your eye shadow’s Louise. The velvety formula guarantees that colorful shadows stay bright and smudge-free for hours. Suitable for all skin types and tones, the sheer formula blends in seamlessly and doesn’t leave any kind of residue on your lids.
While it definitely helped keep shine away for MOST of the day, I found that by 3/4 p.m. (after applying at about 7:30 a.m.), all the shine-absorbing power had gone & my eyeliner started leaving marks behind.
I also had trouble applying it because it takes FORever to soak in, even when you use a small amount.
I am truly sad to have to say goodbye to this primer, because it did a wonderful job: my eyeshadow was easily blendable and stayed put for hours. The problem is this formula inevitably traveled from my lids to the surface of my contacts--making a film that was impossible to get rid of without a full cleaning of my contacts (and makeup remover).
If you don't wear contacts, I highly recommend this primer, but if you do, then I would suggest sampling it first.
I was actually very excited to receive this sample in my Feb box! But, I wasn't as thrilled as I thought I'd be. It left a weird film on my eye lids that I haven't experienced with any other eye primers that I've tried. I still have it in my makeup bag though....maybe I'll give it another try.3
This product does an okay job at keeping your eye shadow in place... but there are definitely others in this price range, or a few dollars more that are much better.3
This primer works alright. It seems kinds of watery, and doesn't last as long as some other primers I have used. I'm glad I got it, but I wouldn't buy it again.3
i like this, but it works as well as the product i currently use. i would not spend more for something else that works well.3
This made my eyeshadow stay on. It did not last long as i would have liked it to. It does what it is supposed to do.3
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.3
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...3
This kept my eyeshadow on, but I feel like there wasn't anything special about this one to justify spending the extra money3
