Basic Eye Primer
Sampled

I've used several other eye primers. This primer didn't work any better or any worse than the primers that I have used in the past. I probably won't purchase this product, because there are others that work just as well and cost less.

pretty okay
Sampled

I didn't particularly like the texture of this product. It seemed a little too watery when i put it on. Also, my eyeshadow only stayed on for a couple hours and then almost completely disappeared.

This is actually a pretty good primer. Goes on very smooth and feels silky. Plus a little goes a long way!

Creases no more!
Sampled

Great product! Totally and completely eliminated annoying eyeshadow creases. I think it also helps my eyeliner stay in place for longer. I no longer have shadow and liner everywhere at the end of the workday. Highly recommend!

Impressed
Sampled

I was impressed by how easy it glides on. It is very light and seriously smooths on easier than I had imagined. You really do get crease free shadow all day. Plus it helped my eyeliner not get smudged by the occasional eye rub at the office.

Similar to UB
Sampled

I thought this was pretty similar to Urban Decay. I don't hate it by any means, but it wasn't (any more) mattifying. Pretty standard eyelid primer.

Satisfying and it worked
Sampled

I have mixed feelings on this eyelid primer. It does in fact work on keeping eyeshadow put. However, after rubbing it on my lids it still felt a little greasy. I am sure everyones skin is different, but for me I didn't like that feeling. The pro is that a little goes a long way.

Tried this yesterday and it works so good! I put it on under my eyeshadow before a long day and by the end of the night when I was washing my face my eyeshadow still looked good! Will def be buying this one :)

Smooth

I don't usually have a problem with my eye shadow creasing or wearing off as I have dry skin but my usual make up or eye cream can cause it to look bad by the end of the day. I substituted this on my eyelids and used my normal eye shadow and it worked pretty good. I wish it had more moisturizer or a brightener do double duty.

A little sticky... but it works
Sampled

It certainly holds makeup in place, but it doesn't go on smoothly. It took some serious blending to get it to sit right... not willing to put that much work into an eye primer.
