good primer!

It definitely primes your eyes for makeup! My only complaint is it didn't last as long as I would prefer.

It actually works!!!
Purchased

I have a full time job and go to school part time and sometimes I'm out from six in the morning until 10 at night. I constantly had the trouble of having my eye shadow migrate to the creases. After I started bought put a lid on it I noticed that my eye shadow stayed put!! I love that I don't have to worry about my make up at all so this is a great product.

Long Staying Eye Color

Nothing has worked quite like this product for the price! Go all day in heat and humidity with the perfect eye look.

Light and airy

This eyelid primer is great, it feels light when you put it on so your eye-shadow can go right on top and stay in place.

I'm a social dancer and its fast and so I get really hot and sweaty but my make up stays where it is. Its nice to be able to leave the venue still looking nice.

Disaster for me, but my friend loved it

This product is a disaster for me! When I put it on, I can't blend my shadow the way I'm used to. It does keep the shadow from flaking off, but in all the summer humidity it started gumming up in the crease of my eyelid and looked just awful! I would rather reapply vanishing eyeshadow any day. However, I gave the rest of mine to a girlfriend and she loved it. I could see using this if you line your eyes in shadow and want it to stay put, but I will not. Spray works much better.

The best primer on the market
Purchased

This stuff is unreal. My eyeshadow doesn't budge all day when I put this on. I have used so many different brands, and this is honestly the winner. So happy I found it through Birchbox!

A must have in my kit

This eye shadow primer is a must have for my make-up kit. I tend to have oily skin, so a primer is absolutely necessary and this one does the job admirably. Won't wear eyeshadow without it!

This is an amazing eye primer! Keeps shadow looking fresh all day and I like the way it moisturizes my eyelids. A must have for your makeup bag.
