his product burns my eyelids some. I also don't like that it is a white color. I would rather it be a tinted shade. The product does keep all eye products on the lid throughout the day.

Nice packaging

The packaging was super nice, the product did crease my eyeshadow a little.

a little goes a long ways
Sampled

I received this as a sample in my January Birchbox. A little definitely goes a long ways, and I like that in my beauty products. It has a very creamy consistency, and dries fairly quickly. The jury is still out as to whether or not I'll purchase, but I like that this comes in a squeeze tube rather than a lip gloss type container with the fuzzy applicator.

Too slick!
Sampled

I didn't hate this product, but found that it didn't really live up to my ideal eyelid primer - it went on very smoothly, but I don't think it actually helped any shadows stay put longer or prevented creasing. I think the $2 elf eyelid primer found at the drugstore does a better job.

Does what it says
Sampled

I thought that the primer worked as it should. I used it in the morning and remained crease free all day. My only issue with the product is that it is not very forgiving. I normally blend a few different shadows together to get the right look to my lids. I found that once color was applied on the primer I was unable to smudge very well.

oily
Sampled

I recently purchased a different brand of eyelid primer, and this one is much more oily than the other one. My eyeshadow brush became sticky after using this.

Smooth
Sampled

I'm not a big user or primers. I usually wear light shimmery eyeshadow that doesn't really show creases. However, I did enjoy how the primer seemed to smooth my eyelids, making them feel silky, and I can see that if I were to go for a heavy, dramatic eye, how this product would be very useful!

Meh

This was alright. I'm a UD primer potion die hard and this wasn't good enough to convert me.

Not bad

This product was a little thick for me, I prefer Urban Decay Primer Potion.
