READ ME!

I know the rules about sleeping with make up on. However, I used this primer and put on eyeshadow at 7 AM yesterday morning, worked all day, came home, cried, went to bed, and woke up this morning with my eyeshadow still PERFECT.

Finally!
Sampled

I've always had a problem w creasing of all shadows & liners. This is the first product I've found that leaves no evidence of itself other than magic. Despite my oily skin, I use only the tiniest dot, rubbed into entire lid, to keep any eye make up set in place all day. No more oil blotters or touch ups required. My sample lasted for quite a while; buying full size now!

Put A Lid On It

So my eye makeup never wears away as long as I put on this primer first but the one thing about it is that if you don't put it on evenly, you can tell. I think I put it on evenly every time but then my eye shadow will be darker in one spot because the primer was raised right there. Other than that, it's good. Oh and a little goes a long way- this will last you forever!

Fun to try
Sampled

This was fun to try but i think its one more thing i don't need to worry about- it does not make a huge difference. The consistency was a bit thick to move around and it left a yellowish color on my lids. i know that gets covered but i typically wear lighter shades and didnt like how noticeable it was

Great product
Purchased

Of all the eyeshadow primers I've used this one is my fave. It is super light and. It very shimmery so you are more free to use any shade of shadow. It keeps your shadow on for a while too which is a plus.

Velvety!

This primer works great alone or with shadow. I have not tried with cream shadow, but it works great with powder, and it seems to have a moisturizing effect...my lids don't feel so tight.

So great!

I absolutely love this product! It works amazing keeping my eyeshadow lasting all day! I just put a little on my finger and gently rub it on to each eyelid and it's like magic! My eyeshadow lasts all day and through the night! Even through dancing and sweating my makeup is still perfect!

This tube will last forever!
Purchased

2-3 tiny beads of product per eye is all i need and it goes on smooth and transparent.

Works well and is great for the price. This will last me ages, is twice the size of my usual primer and the packaging is pretty cute too.

Light, but works well
Purchased

I have tried several eye primers and this was my favorite in regard to the weight of the product. It went on easily and didn't feel gummy or heavy on my eyelids. I am half way through the day and so far, my eye shadow hasn't budged.

This is for sure the best shadow primer I've ever used. It makes shadow stay all day without creasing or fading. Definitely the only primer I'll ever buy.
