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!

Great Product!

I absolutely love this product! I use the smallest bit of it, and my eye makeup stays put no matter what happens! My winged liner stayed perfect through cooking in a very hot kitchen with this primer underneath it, and I was completely amazed! The only, ONLY downside to this product is that it smells a little weird, but for the effectiveness of the product, it's a trade off I'm worth making. Recommend, recommend, recommend!

I've gotten some great primers from birchbox. This one was not one of my favorite. Not that it didn't do its job... there have just. Den others that were much better!

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

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.
