Great holding power!

So glad I got this as a sample in one of my first boxes! I'm addicted to it. After working in a restaurant all night, my eye shadow still looks perfect. I NEVER wear eye shadow now without it!

Just what I was looking for
Purchased

I was looking for a product that would keep my eyeshadow from creasing and keep it looking fresh all day. Put a Lid On It is a wonderful eye shadow primer that does just that. It does have a velvety feel and shadows go on so smoothly. With Put a Lid On It my shadow does not fade. It looks the same when I take it off at night as it did when I first put it on in the morning.

AMAZING

This is essential to my everyday makeup routine. You only need a tiny bit on each lid and your eye shadow stays on place all day with NO creasing. Definitely the best

LOVE This!
Purchased

This is the best eyeshadow primer I have ever used. My eyeshadow doesn't come off unless I use make-up remover when I have it primed wtih the Balm.

I fell asleep last weekend before I could remove my make-up and when I woke up the next morning, my shadow looked as if I had just put it on.

Magic
Purchased

This stuff is magic. Seriously, magic. It goes on light and colorless, and eyeshadow stays put all day. No creases. I even slept with my makeup on the other night (bad, I know, it was one of those nights) and my eyeshadow was still perfect THE NEXT MORNING. This stuff is so worth it.

Great find!
Purchased

This primer has me switching from the cult favorite, Urban Decay. A tiny amount goes a long way and it keeps my shadow in place and streak free ALL day. It also helps eyeshadow color stay true.

Great primer!
Purchased

I've been an Urban Decay primer potion junkie for years, but I may switch to the Balm. I thought it had a silkier texture, and it does the trick same as UD!

Only product I've ever found that actually keeps my eye shadow in place. I have very oily eyelids but this works perfect.

Love it
Purchased

This is a great eye shadow primer. At first I was hesitant because it appeared to be slightly greasy on application. But I love it more than my old favorite by urban Decay. I doesn't cake quite as much which is very nice.
