Works really well!

Keeps eyeshadow in place, but it makes it difficult to fix mistakes. A little heavy. I would purchase it, though. Good primer.

Helped my makeup have staying power!

My eyeshadow didn't fade all day, and my eyeliner stayed intact... for the most part. I was hoping for no eyeliner smudge by the end of the day, and it was close, but I did have to retouch by 4PM, so I only gave this product four stars.

Works well

I don't typically wear eyeshadow, but I tested it out one night it worked quite well. It seemed a little greasy when I first put it on, but I was pleasantly surprised.

First I've tried, but I'm sold!

Works like a charm! Darkens the shadow/pigment just enough for that added pop of color or smoke. Only thing I would add would be maybe a roll on applicator.. Otherwise, I love!!

Nice surprise!

I have never tried an eyelid primer before, but after having such a great experience with this product, I am definitely using primers going forward. I already love theBalm products and this did not disappoint. My eye shadow has never looked better!

Happy to have found this product.

I've not tried this type of product before so this was all new to me. I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and really like the way my eye makeup stays on and doesn't crease. Happy to have tried this product.

Good Primer

This is a good eye shadow primer. Nothing fancy, works well to keep my shadow colors looking like they were freshly applied all day long. Would recommend.

Lovely

This gives a great base for by aging eyelids. Alone the skin on my lids is very crinkly and hard to work on when applying make up. With this base I have a much better canvas to apply liner and eye shadow
