My eyelids tend to be oily and this is a great product. It goes on a little greasy and you do have to wait for it to dry before applying eyeshadow, but it makes eye shadow pop. It helped my eye shadow stay on all day-- even though my workout!

Residue, Schmesidue

I really liked this product. It's light and it doesn't leave a residue on my eyelid later on in the day. Easy to put on and blends well

TheBalm Put A LId On It
Sampled

I have been using Urban Decay primer for quite some time, and I always have problems with it getting on my eyelashes or settling into the crease in my eyelid after a few hours, and it is also quite heavy for a primer. TheBalm's Put a Lid On It is different. At first, I will admit I was skeptical because it seemed a little too smooth when I applied it to my eyelid, but I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised how well it works. It does not crease, and it is very light. You also don't have to deal with the mess that you might get from using other primers.

Great eye product!
Sampled

What a great product! My eyeshadow appeared darker so I didn't have to put as much on as I usually do. The color didn't budge all day.

Makes my eyelid slightly greasy. I does work for priming the eye lid though

Love it!

This stuff is great! I love the matte look it gives you lid and I've been wearing it sans eyeshadow with liquid eyeliner. Definitely helps prevent creasing when you wear shadow though. I like this product much more than my previous eyeshadow balm from MAC.

Primer pros/cons
Sampled

I do not and have not used an eye primer in the past. I am not convinced it is a necessary product in my routine.

Smooth
Sampled

I'm not a big user or primers. I usually wear light shimmery eyeshadow that doesn't really show creases. However, I did enjoy how the primer seemed to smooth my eyelids, making them feel silky, and I can see that if I were to go for a heavy, dramatic eye, how this product would be very useful!
