Not for me

I recently used this product and I did not like the way it felt on my eyelid. It felt really heavy, and almost gave me a tingling sensation. I will say that it did keep my eyeshadow looking fresh for me all day.

Not my favorite, but good

I will not use eyeshadow without a primer. This one works well and gets the job done, but is not my favorite. I prefer a primer that is a little thicker.

Light Coverage

I thought this was going to be sticky, and make my eyeshadow feel cakey - but it was VERY light and smooth! I'm considering buying this for sure!

I might not be the ideal user

I can't attest to how well this makes eyeshadow stay on the lids because I have never noticed having a problem with that WITHOUT this product. I will say, however, that I noticed I did not have to use as much shadow to get the look I wanted.

theBalm Put a Lid On It - too heavy

It's a good idea in theory, but it was just a bit too heavy and moisturizing for me. My shadow still creased and I still needed my blotting sheets mid day.

Solid primer

This product worked great and my makeup stayed on but it worked so well it was pretty tough to get the eye shadow off at the end of the night.

Doesn't work as well as others

I've used Put a Lid On It for a few weeks now and I expect more from an eyelid primer. The texture feels greasy and creases even with the lightest application. Eye shadow does stays put for the majority of the day with PALOI, which is the critical point of an eyelid primer, and for that, I gave it 3 stars.

Overall, it doesn't compete with my current eyelid primer, so I will not be switching.

Really Works

This product really helps keep eye makeup in place. When you put it on it is a bit oily however. I do not like how thin it is. It is also hard to get my eye makeup off after using this. It definitely does what it is supposed to do!

Works great!

This product is a great primer before makeup on your eyelids. It isn't sticky and smells great. Sample size is fairly large.
