GREAT!

I enjoyed this eyelid primer. For the first time ever, I do not have a crease from my eyeshadow after having makeup on all day. I would definitely get this. The texture is a little bizarre but it does it magic pretty darn well.

Awesome product

This product actually works. Typically my eye shadow clumps or disappears within a hour or so. This lasted all day! I didn't even have to reapply for my night out. Great product :)

Nice Texture

This goes on very smooth and feels like velvet. The price is pretty cheap compared to other eye primers.

I like the say my makeup glided over my eyes after I used this product. I really could not tell if my eye shadow stayed on longer.

I'm a MAC eyeshadow girl and I currently use a Mary Kay lid primer so when this came in my box I was Super excited to test it out. Unfortunately, I'm not as impressed as I was hoping. My shadow is blending by afternoon and my colors aren't as vibrant.

A little too creamy
Sampled

I don't like to spend a lot of time putting my makeup on in the morning, so it seemed when I applied this I had to wait a little bit for it to dry so that I could apply my eyeshadow. But the product was creamy and spread super easy, which is nicer than some other eye makeup primers I have tried.

ok...

I wasn't super thrilled after using this product. It kind of seemed like an extra step for me, as I usually don't apply primer to my eyelids. I have very oily skin, and by the end of the day my eyshadow and eyeliner kind of looked the way it always does.

I'm sure that this is a very nice primer, it just wasn't for me. I think that if the user had dry to normal/combination skin, they may have better results with this product

Not for me.

My eye shadow didn't go on evenly after using this product. Maybe I didn't use the product right.

Wow!

This product works wonders on oily eyelids. For those of you who complained, try using just a small amount. A little goes a long way. No smudging or creasing!
