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

LOVE This!
Purchased

This is the best eyeshadow primer I have ever used. My eyeshadow doesn't come off unless I use make-up remover when I have it primed wtih the Balm.

I fell asleep last weekend before I could remove my make-up and when I woke up the next morning, my shadow looked as if I had just put it on.

Drying
Purchased

Sometimes my eyelids are very oily and this is great. If I put it on after water polo practice and the chlorine has already dried me out, my eyes become a little uncomfortable. Otherwise does it's job, similar to texture of POREfessional but for eyes.

Magic
Purchased

This stuff is magic. Seriously, magic. It goes on light and colorless, and eyeshadow stays put all day. No creases. I even slept with my makeup on the other night (bad, I know, it was one of those nights) and my eyeshadow was still perfect THE NEXT MORNING. This stuff is so worth it.

average

i have used eye primers before many times and this has been my least favorite. i love the cute design but its just not very effective on my oily lids. i would think this is good for dry lids. i didnt finish the sample, but it lasted months. i gave the remainder to my best friend to try since she has never tried primers before.

Great find!
Purchased

This primer has me switching from the cult favorite, Urban Decay. A tiny amount goes a long way and it keeps my shadow in place and streak free ALL day. It also helps eyeshadow color stay true.
