Finally a believer in primer!
Purchased

I got this as a sample a few months ago, and was excited just from the brand alone TheBalm always nails it on quality and is super fun and cute. Then I tried the primer and fell in love, my small sample size bottle lasted me about 4 months and was half the size ( if not less) of the full size tube, the full size also has a small pointed tip opening so the small problem I had of not being able to control the amount the tube gave me with the sample was solved, this will last me 7 or 8 months, well worth the price. My shadow never creases anymore, I also have watery eyes so without this primer my shadow usually ended up streaky and patchy on my eyes after a few hours because I have to dab them with tissue.

The best primer I've tried!

This primer goes on sheer and smooth, and a little goes a long way. It took me forever just to get through my little sample tube!

Need this product every day!
SampledPurchased

This has become a staple of my simple make-up routine. It keeps my liner and shadow crease-free and matte. KEEP IN MIND - This will become powdery and noticeable after 2 years (I still have some left!?) so replace after that if you have any - a little goes a long way!

Yes! All the way!

I've always had an issue with creasing shadow or smudges. I've tried so many primers. I walked into a store and saw this one - the balm products are wonderful (my favorite highlighter is from here!) - but this one takes the cake! It takes a minute for it to set and is a bit sticky, but it doesn't clump or pill up and makeup stays put all day. I highly recommend this!

Impressive

I didn't really believe eyelid primers were beneficial or effective before using this product. Feels smooth and silky, non irritating and creates a nice evenly colored skin tone for shadows.

Magical. It's just...magical.

I feel like I mention this in every review I write...but keeping makeup on my face through the muggy and incredibly HOT Texas summers is a real trial. After reading great reviews for this product I decided to try it out. I've used other brands before and they were alright, but this one takes the cake. It glides on smoothly and my eyeshadow DOES. NOT. MOVE. In fact, a good portion of the rest of my makeup faded throughout the day, but the eyeshadow looked just as good as it did when the day started out.

It's not sticky, but the eyeshadow definitely sticks to it. I've got a normal skin type, though my eyeshadow always creases if I don't use a primer. Love theBalm products in general, but this one is definitely a keeper!

It really works!

This product is a must have. I just purchased and used it for the first time. What an incredible difference when it came to applying and blending my eye colors. It is velvety and my eye makeup stayed on all day. It does what it says it does and is now my go-to product for priming my eyes. Worth the money!

Keeps shadow where you want it

Love this primer. It has just enough grip to hold onto your shadow without making it impossible to blend. Plus you only need a tiny amount, so this sample is going to last me a long time!
