Awesome

Such a great primer! Kept my shadow crease-free for hours, taking my look from day to night without the need to reapply or cleanup muddy colors!

not impressed
Purchased

This product didn't really do too much for me. It seemed oily and I didn't notice my eyeshadow lasting any longer than usual. I tried it for a couple weeks, but then forgot about it.

It's alright.

This primer is not as good as the Urban Decay version of the same product. It is oilier and does not go onto the eyelid with a matte finish immediately. I have to put this on first, then wait about 2 minutes to apply eyeliner or shadow.

Works great!

Put a Lid On It is a great eyelid primer. Eye shadow stays put all day. This is the best primer I have used so far.

I haven't been totally crazy about this, but it does a good enough job that I would buy it again. I like an eyeshadow primer with a little color to it and this almost seems too oily.

Great holding power!

So glad I got this as a sample in one of my first boxes! I'm addicted to it. After working in a restaurant all night, my eye shadow still looks perfect. I NEVER wear eye shadow now without it!

Not a fan

Received this sample, after trying it several times, I've concluded it's not for me. It feels like hair gel on my eyelids and my eye makeup chunks up over it. I wait sufficient time after applying to let it dry. Just does not agree with my eyelids!

Really happy with this product
Purchased

I have to admit, I didn't think this eye primer would work because of it's silky smooth texture. But I was really impressed at how well it held my shadow and eyeliner in place. I have deep set eyes, and I can't wear eyeliner without a primer because the liner just rubs off on my upper lids. I had very minimal rubbing off when I used this primer.

Also, I love that it doesn't have a strong tint to it. I've used other primers that are almost like a thick concealer and they always are way darker and warmer than my ultra pale skin. This primer blended really well into my natural skin tone.

Just what I was looking for
Purchased

I was looking for a product that would keep my eyeshadow from creasing and keep it looking fresh all day. Put a Lid On It is a wonderful eye shadow primer that does just that. It does have a velvety feel and shadows go on so smoothly. With Put a Lid On It my shadow does not fade. It looks the same when I take it off at night as it did when I first put it on in the morning.

AMAZING

This is essential to my everyday makeup routine. You only need a tiny bit on each lid and your eye shadow stays on place all day with NO creasing. Definitely the best
