Great final product

The smallest amount of this product goes a very long way. My only complaint is that the texture of my eyelid was "greasier" than normal. I would have preferred it to dry lighter. Overall, it was a good product though.

Not bad/not awesome
Sampled

This is ok, but not the holy grail of primers for me. Not as blendable as some others. I had to watch the corners so as not to have shadow uneveness.

does the job

My eyeshadow stayed on for at least 6-8 hours with no problem. Put it on before I went out for the night, still there in the morning with no issues. Light weight and fragrance free.

Great Product

I would give theBalm Put a Lid on It a three out of five stars. I thought it was a pretty high quality product and helped my eye makeup last about 9 hours. The only downside of the product is the small sample size.

Great Primer

A great primer! Not thick at all. Doesn't discolor shadow used on top of it. Helps eyeshadow really stay put. Would receommend.

I wanted to love it.

I just did a day-long comparison between this product and my favorite shadow primer, Urban Decay's Primer Potion. It pales in comparison. Put a Lid On It is thin and shiny and hard to work with when applying on the lid. It isn't a matte finish, it is shiny and very viscous (liquidy). It dried as a thin layer on my eyelid that started creasing into the lines on my lid immediately. It leaves a sticky residue much like a thin gel face mask, but impossible to remove if it gets too far into the corner of your eye. It doesn't let the shadows blend well. Overall, I wanted to like it, but it doesn't even touch the one I already use.

Must Buy!!!

The balm out a lid on it is amazing! My eyeshadow looks like i've just applied it but in reality its been on for 16hrs!! It applies nicely and remains clear. No clumping like some other eyelid primers. A definite must buy!!

It worked
Sampled

I have never used anything under my eyeshadow before so this was new for me. I put a small dab on and was worried as I put on the eye shadow that it would not blend as I normally blend it. But it looked great once I had it all on. And the sample size will last a long time.

Awesome! I've always had my eyeshadow crease and look horrible mid-day, and this solves all my problems!
