bareminerals beats it

I was excited to try this product and it works! but the texture feels oily and my lids are already oily so, meh. It held my shadow in place for sure, but I prefer a drier feel to my eyelid primer. I'm in love with the ones from bareminerals.

Wasn't too stoked by this, I've used better eyeshadow primers.

Looove TheBalm
Sampled

I have loved EVERY single product I have tried from TheBalm so far! This is another great one! I don't normally use a primer since I have just given up on eyeshadow staying put, but this may be a winner! I've been wearing it for about 6 hours so far and it seems to be holding up. Although I think the true test will have to be in the summer but that'll just have to wait. I did notice as well that it seems to help keep the pigment of the shadow too. Keep TheBalm products coming!

theBalm? More like theBomb.

This is seriously THE BEST eye primer I have EVER used. I have a really bad problem with oily eyelids, so usually eyeliner and shadows smudge or crease after two or three hours. I think theBalm must have infused some sort of black magic with this formula, because I've been able to rock layered shadows and cat eyes for well into the 8 hour range while looking totally perfect. Perfect example- I made it through a screening of Les Mis with my eye makeup perfectly intact. This stuff is literally in my BB shopping cart, and I plan on hitting purchase right after submitting this review.

Love me a good eye primer...

This stuff is pretty good. Can't decide if it leaves less creases at the end of the day compared to my Tarte primer I usually use. I just bought a Balm eye palette a few weeks ago, and the two seem to work together nicely.

Great product!

This product works really well...I usually use Urban Decay but this was just as good. It came out more of a gel type texture than a a foundation type like Urban, but a little definitley goes a long way! Would recommend for sure.

Good stuff, a little bit wet and sticky and takes some time to dry but it makes my eyeshadow/liner last all day!
