I've always had a problem w creasing of all shadows & liners. This is the first product I've found that leaves no evidence of itself other than magic. Despite my oily skin, I use only the tiniest dot, rubbed into entire lid, to keep any eye make up set in place all day. No more oil blotters or touch ups required. My sample lasted for quite a while; buying full size now!

Great primer
Purchased

I am a big fan of this eyelid primer. I use it daily and I have noticed a huge difference in the before and after amount of smudging and creasing going on. Not just with powder based eyeshadows either, this stuff works with grease based and liquids too.

My personal favorite
SampledPurchased

I have tried quite a few makeup primers/bases and this is by far my favorite. It only takes a tiny bit to get the job done. I use it on my eye lids under my eye shadow. I love how my eye shadow stays put all day even through a sweaty workout! You do have to be careful and not put too much of this product on though because once dry it will leave white marks if not rubbed in all the way and then the eye shadow tends to clump in it.

I'm relieved to finally find an eye primer that delivers on its promises. I have relatively oily skin around my eyes. This product has really helped my shadows and liners stick, and minimized smudging, slipping, & settling. It doesn't irritate my eyes.

My makeup stays put!

It has been tough finding a primer that does the job well, but I think I have found one! This primer goes on very smooth and holds my makeup in place all day long! I never have to worry about touching it up! I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

I have very oily eyelids and primers rarely work. This one, however, is awesome! It truly keeps my eyeshadow in place - with no creases, which is basically a miracle. Will purchase again.

I can finally wear eye shadow and eye liner again without it smearing off my eyes with all the oil I had on them. Great stuff!!! Love it.

This was my first time trying the balm primer. It seemed oily while application but it made my eyeshadow stay for longer time. Prevents creasing. The smell is a bit off putting but all in all its a good product.

It Really Works!

I have tried quite a few lid primers. Some actually accentuate the skin on your lids by making your shadow stay in place even more in the creases. This product provides just enough staying power to be effective, but not so much that it makes wrinkles look even more prominent. Love love love.
