ok product, but definitely NOT the best.

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.

It's okay

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.

Worked well

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.

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.

great product

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.
