Maybe not the best primer
Sampled

This primer is a little oily and when it dries is very sticky to where I can't blend or move shadows around. Basically it isn't very forgiving & once you put a color in a spot, good luck softening the edges or fading around it. Maybe I'm not a primer person and I should stick to just using cream shadows as a base.

Nice!

I don't normally wear primer, but I liked this stuff! :) I will probably start using it! Makes my eyeshadow stay on longer and brighter.

Good, but kinda runny
Sampled

I like this product! It held my eye shadow and liquid liner all day. My one complaint is that it was kind of runny when I got it.

Not the product for me...
Sampled

Texture is fine, but doesn't keep eye makeup long for very long...my eyeliner started smearing after a couple of hours. I've used primers that would hold my makeup til the next day!

Urban Decay is still my go to
Sampled

This product does what it says but I still feel that my shadow lasts longer with Urban Decay. The product is also has a thin watery feel to it, and I just didn't like how it felt when I was applying.

Works great!
Sampled

I've tried other eye primers and they've always been very greasey feeling and I've always felt my eyelid was sticky. This product feels light and kept my eyeshadow in place throughout the day.

A little goes a long way!

I was really surprised by this product. I don't wear a lot of eye-shadow but because my skin is oily sometimes I still get that crease with my tinted moisturizer. This completely took it away. I also dab a bit under my eye to hold my concealer for those pesky dark circles. Works Fantastic! I love how little you need as well. Will buy!
