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.

Meh
Sampled

Although the product seemed to work well, I don't know if it's worth the money or extra step during makeup application for everyday use. I might use it for a special occasion but not on a day to day basis.

Good Primer
Sampled

It felt really wet when I first put it on and I was worried that it would need time to dry. I didn't expect it to feel that way but once it dried I felt like it really made a difference and lasted all day.

Ok

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.

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.
