be patient, it's worth it!!

I finally figured out how to use this stuff right. To get the optimum benefit of this primer, you need to use enough to cover your full lid, close your eyes and let it set in the air for 30 seconds or so before putting on your shadow. That's a little bit of a hassle, but it's WORTH IT. This is the best primer I've ever used. I can sleep in my eye shadow (don't judge) and it still looks as good as when I first put it on the next morning.

This is a great primer. I have extremely oily lids, and this cream helps my liner stay in place all day.

This product really works. It keeps my eyeshadow from rubbing off for the whole day. You do not have to use that much of it, so the tube can last you for awhile. Must have.

Nice Primer
Purchased

This primer is colorless, goes on smoothly. A little goes a long way. My eye shadow stays in place all day. I replaced a pink toned eyelid primer with this product. This works better for me.

my eye lids get really oily just in general I don't even wear much eye shadow, but this stuff works wonders to keep the oil and eye makeup at bay.

Nice Product

This is a nice product that really helps improve my over-all makeup look. I HATE when my eyeshadow smudges by the end of the day, and this pretty much solves that problem for me! This is the first eyelid primer I have every used, so I am not sure how it compares to other brands, but it meets all of my needs for smudge-resistant eyeshadow!

SEAMLESS EASE
Purchased

I am a really basic, on the go gal when it comes to my beauty regimen.

I have fairskin so my eyelids do often look inconsistent in natural color (veiny etc.). While I don't have time for shadow most days, I do have time for this.

This product evens my skin tone and keeps my eyeliner put all day.

I was able to use just a little bit, and it not only went a long way, my eyeshadow didn't budge!

Was not a bad primer at all

I love this primer, it did almost exactly what I need a primer to do. Except one thing, it creased a lot for me. But I used it for more simple looks and love it that way!

great eyeshadow base

goes on cream, but not goopy. Keeps the powder on longer than most base. It is not greasy and goes on clear. Recommend this product.
