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.

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.

This product is so great. My eye makeup stayed on all day,
it is wonderful not to have your eye makeup in the crease
of your eye by noon.

I thought this eye primer was really nice. It went on very easily and smooth and wasn't sticky. It made a great base for a long day of shadow wear.

I've been looking for an eyelid primer and was really excited when there was on in this month's box. I've used it everyday since. I will be buying my own!
