Too slick!

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

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.

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.
