Relatively new to primers, but have tried a few of them. I preferred this primer to any other one I've used -- it's 'invisible' once you put it on (I feel that many others are like a concealer in terms of consistency) and did a good job keeping my eye make up in place.

Good Product
Sampled

I tried this product for the very first time after receiving it in my January box. I am not sure if I applied to much of it or not, but when I put my eye shadow on it was difficult to apply and caked up my brushes. Once I got a base shadow on it wasn't so bad. The good thing is that my eye makeup stayed on ALL day...from 9am until 1am....I never needed to reapply or touch up. I was nervous that it would be tough to remove but it came right off with my remover. I would recommend this to women that are on the go or working all day and dont have time to reapply or touch up their makeup.

Didn't really notice

I don't wear really heavy or super colorful eyeshadow, so honestly I did not notice a difference. It was an extra step in the make-up process. I will keep the sample on-hand for special occasion make-up that may be a little heavier, but I didn't feel the need for every day use with it.

I believe that this product is awesome (eyesome!!). Have always had problems with keeping eyeshadow in place. The first time using this primer, and I did not have to touch up my eyeshadow all day. What a relief to know that my makeup looks great all day long. Would definitely recommend this product to everyone!!

Not a fan

I have always used primer for my eyeshadow to make it last all day. This product goes on super greasy and makes your eyeshadow clump and stick to it. Maybe it needs time to dry, but most of the time I do not have time to wait while putting make up on. I would not recommend this product.

Just ok

While this primer did seem to work, I don't like it as much as the urban decay primer. My eyeshadow didn't last quite as long with this.

This is oilier compared to other eye primers, I would recommend Urban Decay over this.

I wear eye makeup everyday. I just wasnt thrilled with one more thing to put on in the a.m. that didn't make a difference.
