Has a nice smooth texture, not too oily. It's transparent, but held my eyeshadow in place all day. A decent product.

Wow it stayed for good 7 hours! I loved how my shadow didn't crease, it was a little difficult to take off tho, need more makeup remover than usual. overall great product, will be using this sample till it runs out.

not in love
Sampled

I've given this a few chances, but just can't love it. It does its job and doesn't crease, but on me, it was very dry - and would actually flake off. I also noticed it was difficult to get off while washing my face.

Just Not My Thing

I get contact dermatitis easily and this primer seemed to make it act up. I used once without having any reaction and it seemed to make a real "canvas" for your eyeshadow. Not a bad product just something I can't use.

smooth lids

this consistency is very nice on this primer. i have little bumps around my eye area and i think it helped smooth them out for makeup application. i like it because it felt more rich and moisturizing than the urban decay primer potion which is very popular.

Love it!

I did eye shadow swipes on the back of my hand—naked, with face primer, and this theBalm Put a Lid On It. The naked spot only held a little shadow. The primer held on to much more of the pigment, but not as much as theBalm. I was amazed! And you only need a very, very small amount. I've also been using it under my eyes to help my concealer stick.

Preety good!
Sampled

I received this in my January birchbox. I really like the product. I have used primers before and generally feel that they are not for me. I love that this one is intended for eyes only. I hadn't thought of using a primer like that before. It gets the job done without feeling slick all over your face. The website describes it as sheer, but I feel like it has a little shimmer to it...which I love!

This product goes on smoothly and provides the benefits of a great primer. It helped my make-up stay on and fresh all day long.

Okay

I wasn't totally satisfied with this product because I still had creases in my eyes. However, I did notice it did smooth eyeshadow out and if that is what you are looking for, this would be the item for you.
