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.

I really like this product. It does everything it says it will and does not leave the eyelid greasy. Definitely would recommend.

Good product!

great primer that actually stays put and really brings out the pigments in the shadows I've put ontop of it.

Works!

I'd never used a primer besides my concealer or pressed powder before. This really goes the distance and lasts all day. Say goodbye to that icky mid-day crease in your shadow or pigment.

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.
