CHANGED MY LIFE. THIS IS THE BEST
Purchased

I always, always had eyeshadow clumped in my crease by the end of the day no matter what. I guess I have greasy eyelids? I don't know. What matters is that since I started using this product, my eyeshadow stays put longer than I would ever need it to. I will never stop using this product, it is incredible. Definitely worth the price

Great eye primer
Sampled

I had never given eye primers a second thought until I tried this sample in my box. It does truly help your eye makeup stay on better and last longer, it also gives your eye lids a smooth base on which to start. As soon as I run out I will buy a full version of this.

Great primer
Purchased

This primer works great. I've used it with powder shadow, crime shadow and shadow sticks and it helps them all stay put all day.

So far so good!
Purchased

This product does a great job of keeping liquid eyeliner and eyeshadow in place - through roller derby games and after-parties :-)

Staying Power for Days
SampledPurchased

I love a good, dramatic eye shadow; but am constantly annoyed by shades that smudge, smear, and lose their intensity. Put a Lid on It keeps even the most saturated hues on my lids and shining to their full potential all day. Just a tiny bit of this product on each lid does the trick. Do make sure to give it a full minute to dry before applying shadow, per the package instructions, for the full benefits. A great compliment to any shadow you use!

Even in humid summer weather this keeps eye makeup in place. Goes on silkly smooth and holds shadow with no creases. LOVE IT!

Nice clean eye primer
Sampled

This is not the yellow color the tube might suggest but an almost sheer really nice feeling primer. Definitely highly recommended from a user of a variety of different primers this one is high on my repurchase list. Kept makeup in place without adding odd colors to the eye like many primers are already tinted.

New Favorite!
Purchased

I never wear eyeshadow without a primer and have tried several. This one is my favorite so far though! I used a tiny bit on my eyelids this morning and 10 hours later my eyeshadow is still going strong and hasn't smudged or creased at all.

Keeps your eye make-up in place
Purchased

This is great. Goes on smooth and does not feel like there is anything on your eyelids. It also keeps your eye make-up on the entire work day.

Must have!
SampledPurchased

Received this in a Birchbox about a year ago and have been hooked ever since! This holds onto your eye makeup so well and doesn't crease! My eyelids tend to accumulate oil throughout the day but this product was a total game changer for me and now I can wear eye shadow any time!
