Love it!

I did eye shadow swipes on the back of my hand—naked, with face primer, and this theBalm Put a Lid On It. The naked spot only held a little shadow. The primer held on to much more of the pigment, but not as much as theBalm. I was amazed! And you only need a very, very small amount. I've also been using it under my eyes to help my concealer stick.

A Lovely product

this eye primer was really soft on my eyelids and blended nicely, and the eyeshadow I applied over it didn't move or fade all day! Its a really nice product.

Loved this.

I'm very picky with eye primer and at first I was scared this was going to be shimmery and was very happy to find that it was not. It stuck on after a few hours and it definitely helped keep my shadows on those hours. I am planning on purchasing this product when the sample is finished.

I never thought I would use an eyelid primer but I absolutely loved this product! A little goes a long way and it worked great. I put it on in the early morning and it lasted all night! I would recommend this product to anyone, especially a skeptic like myself!

This stuff is amazing. I have never had my shadow last all day, but after using this product it looks just as good at the end of the day as it did when i first applied it. A little goes a long way!

Looove TheBalm

I have loved EVERY single product I have tried from TheBalm so far! This is another great one! I don't normally use a primer since I have just given up on eyeshadow staying put, but this may be a winner! I've been wearing it for about 6 hours so far and it seems to be holding up. Although I think the true test will have to be in the summer but that'll just have to wait. I did notice as well that it seems to help keep the pigment of the shadow too. Keep TheBalm products coming!

theBalm? More like theBomb.

This is seriously THE BEST eye primer I have EVER used. I have a really bad problem with oily eyelids, so usually eyeliner and shadows smudge or crease after two or three hours. I think theBalm must have infused some sort of black magic with this formula, because I've been able to rock layered shadows and cat eyes for well into the 8 hour range while looking totally perfect. Perfect example- I made it through a screening of Les Mis with my eye makeup perfectly intact. This stuff is literally in my BB shopping cart, and I plan on hitting purchase right after submitting this review.
