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.

Not the best but still works!

This wasn't the best primer I've tried but it works just fine!!
It primed my eyes and kept my eyeshadow looking good. But throughout the day, my eyeshadow didn't look so "hot"

I typically use MAC eye primer and this product did not really compare. It was somewhat watery, but it did keep my eye makeup on all day.

Decent Primer
Sampled

It's a pretty decent eye primer, but I think I prefer the LORAC Behind the Scenes primer more. Still, this sample will be good to have around for travel, and I'm sure I'll use it up.

greasy lids
Sampled

I normally use a Nyx primer for my eyeshadow and I find that that stuff dries almost immediately and gives a nice clean, neutral surface for the makeup. I'm still experimenting with this product but initial uses leave my lids a little more moist than I'd prefer which in turn causes my shadow to crease.

The product is good; however, I don't find it to be necessary for my make up routine.

Still not sure

I must confess, I've never put much stock in eyelid/eyeshadow primers. I know some people swear by them, but I remain unimpressed. That said, this seems like a good one- smooth and "velvety" (as they so love to advertise) on application. It has kind of a weird, unscented-but-chemically scent, but on my eyelids it doesn't seem to make a difference. My everyday look doesn't include much eyeshadow to speak of, but I'll be trying this primer the next time I go for a more dramatic look.

could be better

this product is okay. I already use naked eye primer which works really really good, but when I used put a lid on it, it really didn't work well for me. It is really greasy and eye shadow just smears.

Good Product
Sampled

I tried this product for the very first time after receiving it in my January box. I am not sure if I applied to much of it or not, but when I put my eye shadow on it was difficult to apply and caked up my brushes. Once I got a base shadow on it wasn't so bad. The good thing is that my eye makeup stayed on ALL day...from 9am until 1am....I never needed to reapply or touch up. I was nervous that it would be tough to remove but it came right off with my remover. I would recommend this to women that are on the go or working all day and dont have time to reapply or touch up their makeup.
