My personal favorite
SampledPurchased

I have tried quite a few makeup primers/bases and this is by far my favorite. It only takes a tiny bit to get the job done. I use it on my eye lids under my eye shadow. I love how my eye shadow stays put all day even through a sweaty workout! You do have to be careful and not put too much of this product on though because once dry it will leave white marks if not rubbed in all the way and then the eye shadow tends to clump in it.

I'm relieved to finally find an eye primer that delivers on its promises. I have relatively oily skin around my eyes. This product has really helped my shadows and liners stick, and minimized smudging, slipping, & settling. It doesn't irritate my eyes.

Great primer to prevent creasing
SampledPurchased

I have a hooded eyelid so I have a really hard time wearing eye shadow because by noon I am left with just a crease full of goo. This product (when used properly) keeps my eye shadow in place for a few hours longer, which usually gets me to the end of the workday.
Some shadows work better than others with this product, but overall it helps with creasing. I don't wear eye shadow without it!

It has been tough finding a primer that does the job well, but I think I have found one! This primer goes on very smooth and holds my makeup in place all day long! I never have to worry about touching it up! I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

I have very oily eyelids and primers rarely work. This one, however, is awesome! It truly keeps my eyeshadow in place - with no creases, which is basically a miracle. Will purchase again.

This primer went on smooth and really made my eye make up last. There was never any residue and it never changed the color of my eye shadows.

It works really well and when I wear it I don't have to worry about my eyeshadow smudging or rubbing off.

It stays

This works great. Just a little bit evens out my eyelid and helps keep the eyeshadow on. It does create a hint of a shimmer which is nice.

I can finally wear eye shadow and eye liner again without it smearing off my eyes with all the oil I had on them. Great stuff!!! Love it.

This was my first time trying the balm primer. It seemed oily while application but it made my eyeshadow stay for longer time. Prevents creasing. The smell is a bit off putting but all in all its a good product.
