pretty good

I enjoyed this primer for sure. Other primers have seemed to leave residue on my lid and feel more like putting on a liquid eyeshadow. This one did not have that feel and I really felt like it made my eye make up last longer.

Good primer

Goes on very smooth and eyeshadow and liner last all day. I have oily eyelids and this product makes it trickier to blend the shadows on me. Really nice primer though.

neat product

I have enjoyed using this eyelid primer under my eye shadow. It helps keep the shadow in place throughout the day.

Very smooth and makes a difference

I loved this sample! My eyeshadow usually doesn't last very long due to my skin type, but this kept it in place much longer than usual!

Liked it

I've never used a product of this type before, so I don't have anything to compare it to. It seems to do what is described. I didn't see the creases in my eye shadow that sometimes appears. I guess I'm not crazy about the price. Seems a little high for something you prime your eyelids with.

it felt oily going on

when putting on this product, it felt a little oily. It worked really well at keeping my eye shadow on thru the day, even with little hands touching my face.

Great basic lid primer!

I only have good things to say about this lid primer. It goes on creamy and smooth, takes just a few moments to set, and lasts all day.

I liked it

I like the fact that the shadow didn't clump during the day after wearing for a few hours. I have oily skin and usually don't wear eyeshadow because it clumps. With this product I'll probably be wearing eyeshadow more often.
