Pretty good!

I don't own another eye-lip primer so this was my first experience with one. It's pretty great!

okay but wouldn't use often
Sampled

I don't often use base products but found this one to be somewhat pointless. It didn't seem to be of benefit.

Not the best, not bad

I am a huge fan of eyeshadow primer so I was excited to try this. I can't say that it's my favorite primer of all time but it is a pretty good option none the less.

Nice Primer
Sampled

My favorite primer is Benefit Stay don't stray, and this reminded me alot of it. I didn't like how greasy it was when you first apply it. It does dry, but my eyelids felt wet for a couple mintues.

Necessary product

This product definitely made a difference. It will be a staple in my makeup routine, especially when I use dark shades.

Overly Sticky
Sampled

I thought this product was overly sticky and didn't allow for easy blending of my shadow. I've tried less product and it doesn't seem to lesson the effect.

if only I wore more eye make-up
Sampled

I'm much more of a minimalist. I wear mascara and occasionally other eye make up only when I'm dressed to impress and really stand out. For the most part, my glasses are my only eye need. Regardless, I've tried this product before and it worked great for my oily eye lids :)

Does the job.
Sampled

I fell in love with eyeshadow primers several years ago and will now never wear eyeshadow without applying a primer first. They are just absolutely necessary. I've tried several different ones and this one is pretty good. I didn't like that the hole where the primer came out was a little large so it's a little difficult to control how much comes out and I ended up squeezing out way too much... A little goes a long way with these eyeshadow primers. The one I'm currently using is Two Faced Shadow insurance which comes out much more slowly so you can control it better. I've also used Urban Decay's potion primer and Nars Smudge Proof primer which both have a sponge stick to apply it which also helps you control how much you use. In my opinion, they all do the same thing and one isn't noticeably better than another. I just like the way Two Faced comes out of the tube.
