This primer is my fav. I have oily skin and have trouble with eye shadow wearing off or creasing over the course of the day but this one makes even inexpensive eye shadows stay on all day. And it's not cakey or sticky. Score.

Liking it so far

Since I am such a huge fan of the Balm concealer I tried this. I actually really like it and feel that it does extend the wear time of my eye shadow. I will definitely buy more when it runs out.

Smooth
Purchased

I like the way this product creates a smooth foundation before I apply my eyeshadow. It helps my eyeshadow stay on longer also.

great lid primer!
Purchased

Not the most expensive or the best, but a really great value. Solid B+. A little goes a long way, too.

Best Primer I've tried
Purchased

This is hands-down the best eye shadow primer I have tried. The I love about it the most is that it is 100% sheer. Every other primer I've tried, leaves some sort of sheen or shimmer on my eyelids. This is foolproof and my eye shadow stays perfectly set all day long.

My favorite product to date
Purchased

I have tried many eye shadow primers since I have only skin and live it a very humid climate. However, this is the first one that really works. I love it and would not bother with eye shadow without this first. Keeps my eye shadow in plae all day.

New Favorite!
Purchased

I love this primer- I ALWAYS get makeup lines in the crease of my eye, no matter what kind of eye shadow I use- this stuff keeps my makeup on all day! It's also light feeling, and hasn't bothered my eyes or skin at all (both are sensitive).

great product

Absorbed fast and went on smoothly. After many hours of eyeshadow wear I did not see any smudging or creasing on my eyes

Great!

No creases, no problem! I'm a firm believer in eye shadow primer and theBalm didn't disappoint. I'm beginning to think I might want to try their products first before others!

Goes on smoothly, and shadow stayed on for hours
Purchased

This primer is great. It goes on smooth, and my shadow stayed on all day. The primer itself is smooth and not greasy at all. Looks in color and lasts for hours.
