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.

No more touching up.

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.

Refusing to put a lid on it!

I really liked this primer! It doesn't leave creases like a lot of other primers do, and my brush isn't stiff/sticky after using it! It doesn't last all day, but long enough to leave me satisfied!

too greasy
Sampled

I have very oily eyelids and have a difficult time keeping eyeshadow and liner throughout my 12 hour work days. This primer was greasy and did not work for me at all. My eye makeup was gone early in the day and I would have been better with no primer at all. My $1 drugstore eye primer works much better than this

It really works!

I really like this product. Smooth, silky feel and just a hint of color. My eye makeup not only lasts all day, but through my very tough workout classes late in the day! Amazing.

decent primer
Sampled

So far this primer has prevented creasing in a dry, winter climate. I have oily skin and rely on primers to help keep my makeup in place. At the end of the day, my eye makeup remained unchanged from when I first applied it.

Great!

This works better than another big name lid primer I've been using, and is slightly less expensive. Great!
