Made my color pop

I like eye shadow primer because it helps with showing the color a lot more as well as helping the shadow stay in place

Decent Primer
Sampled

It's a pretty decent eye primer, but I think I prefer the LORAC Behind the Scenes primer more. Still, this sample will be good to have around for travel, and I'm sure I'll use it up.

I have been using eye makup primers for a while, but I really like this one for it's moisturizing properties. It also doesn't become cakey. AND, it lasts! I put in on this morning around 7:30 a.m., and now at 3:00 p.m., my eye-makeup looks great! It didn't wear off or smear at all!

Does what it says
Sampled

Kept my shadow in place all day with no creasing! Similar to the Smashbox shadow primer I already use, might switch to this one when the Smashbox runs out.

greasy lids
Sampled

I normally use a Nyx primer for my eyeshadow and I find that that stuff dries almost immediately and gives a nice clean, neutral surface for the makeup. I'm still experimenting with this product but initial uses leave my lids a little more moist than I'd prefer which in turn causes my shadow to crease.

Nice Primer
Sampled

This primer did was it was supposed to. Having tried other primers, this one is about the same. I have nothing negative to say about this primer, but it's not better than any other primer I've tried (it's not worse, either, though!)

Best eye shadow primer

I have always sworn by Urban Decay but I will never go back! This lets the color shine through exactly as is and stays forever! TheBalm is my favorite brand these days.

New to me

I've never used eyelid primer so I have nothing to compare this to. It definitely worked but I don't know if I would buy it.

Love this product!
Purchased

Ordered this product on a whim, since I was running out of my primer. I didn't notice that my usual go to, "eye insurance" was on the birchbox site, so I decided to try this product out. Am having great success, and am noticing that my shadow stays on all day long. Would definitely recommend!
