no creases!

I have to confess this is my first ever eye primer. I have oily skin/eyelids, so I was so pleased to find that it stopped my eyeshadow from settling into the creases of my deep set eyes.

Good but...

The only thing I didn't like about this product is that it left a white film around my eyes that would cling to the shadow and give it a shadowy or milky effect

Great Product

I've used many eye primers before & this has fantastic "staying" power. The only reason why I gave it 4 stars is because I would like it with a shimmery tint like the Urban Decay primer line.

Smooth and creamy!

This is a great eyelid primer, but I don't really see it better than others I've used. I'd like it more if it had more of a color or tint to it so it could be a highlighter as well. It goes on smooth like a primer should and a dab will do you good!

Good for oily skin

I have very oily skin. Oily eye lids especially and I found this product to be good. Not great, but good. So I would recommend it for someone who doesnt have extra oily skin. Packaging is cute too!

Surprisingly great

I always enjoy some eye primer. I have really oily eye lids so i HAVE to wear primer when I do eye shadow. When I first opened this i was a bit skeptical because it seemed a bit to gel like and light and didn't think it would hold up with my lids. But it worked! there was light creasing but that was after 6+ hours. It applies very light and dries translucent, which i really like. Overall I was pleased with this product.

This stuff is awesome

REALLY keeps the eye makeup from creasing and moving. Problem is you have to be careful with smokey eye stuff because it's nearly impossible to blend anything once you apply it. But it would be great for hot days when your eyes can't hold their makeup.

Doubles as great lip balm

While digging through my purse I grabbed this sample and used it as lip balm. It's winter so I usually need to re-apply because it's so dry. But when I realized I didn't need another lip balm layer I was shocked this was so effective. Haven't used as an eyelid primer yet, but the "lasts for hours" as a lip balm is true!

Long lasting

I haven't used a cream as a base before - just be careful not to get it anywhere near your eyes as it will burn. However, it was seriously great and kept the eyeshadow on and bright all day & night.
