Love it!

I absolutely love this product! It is very lightweight and goes on easily. My eyes makeup stays put and doesn't smudge. Also, my eyelids don't sting when I use this product, which has happened to me in the past with similar products used.

Great!

Great product! First time I used it my eyeshadow stayed on through my 8-hour shift at work when usually by lunch time it's already faded. I initially thought that the balm would make my eyelids feel chunky but it doesn't. Really easy to apply and don't need an excessive amount.

Awesome

I used a little too much the first time around and didn't like it. A little goes a long way. Kept creasing to a minimum.

Silky Smooth Lids
Sampled

What an awesome product, I was lucky enough to get the full size in my birchbox this month, and I am in love! It is slightly tinted, to give you a teeny tiny little bit of a base glow color. my high quality shadows stay vibrant all day long. Keeps my lids from developing that annoying crease for more than 10 hours. I wore this at work a couple days, and am impressed with the long wear of my eyeshadows now. Another winner.

i have used several eye lid primer in the past. this one is by far the best. the texture is a bit oily. but i put it on my eye lid and let it sit for a few a minutes then i apply my eyeshadow. it looked the same as it did as i first put it on when i got home from a 12 hour shift at work

Primer

I've never used another eyeshadow primer so I have nothing to compare it to. However, I really liked it and it kept my eyeshadow on all day.

I was skeptical about the size of the sample, but you really only need a very small amount. I won't say this kept my eye shadow 100% on, but it definitely kept it in place more than usual. Most of the time, by lunch my eye shadow has pretty much disappeared, but with this it stayed put.

Not bad

This lid primer wasn't awful but not my fav either. Haven't noticed it keep my shadow on longer than any other primer. However, I also prefer a primer that neutralizes the coloring on my lids, so if it did that maybe I would like it more.

For the first time, my eye shadow looked like I had just applied it when I got home from work. This product works great, with no greasy feeling or caking.
