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

Good little primer
Sampled

THis is a good primer but I have found others that I like as much that are not as costly. Still if you are looking for a good primer this one is really good.

Good. Not Great
Sampled

I have used a lot of primers and this is ok but my shadow didn't stay on as long as it does when I used the Urban Decay primer.

It's ok
Sampled

It has an okay texture, but it was more like a lotion than the primers I've used in the past. It did an okay job holding my eyeshadow in place, but I have used better products.

Ok product but not raving
Sampled

I used this product under a couple colors of powder shadow and I really didnt see that much of a difference than just using a face primer all over. It be better used under cream shadows. Overall, I would say that it is ok but not really necessary unless you wear a lot of heavy shadow.
