This product helps shadows last all day and worn alone can stop oily eyelids from being bothersome. It's worth every penny.

Product has changed my life!!
Purchased

Before this product I didn't like to wear eye shadows because it would crease by mid day. This product feels great going on eyes and helps concealer and eye color stay on for those 18 hr days. I fell asleep one night in makeup and woke up next day with eye makeup fully intact. I'm buying this product as gifts for friends and fam. I can finally enjoy all the beautiful eye makeup out there!!

STAYS PUT
Purchased

When doing my makeup I spread a small amount of this on my lids and wait one min. When i put my shadows on I better get it right the first time because it would be a mess to start over. Love it and it does exactly what is it suppose to do!!

Not bad.

It works fairly well, but there are a few other eyelid primers I prefer. The price is fair. I doubt I'll buy this one again, but I don't regret buying the tube.

a greasy eyelid must-have

If I happen to have time for eyeshadow, this HAS TO happen first. There's no color, and it really keeps color on and uncreased. Amazing. Only product that has worked this well.

My favorite primer
SampledPurchased

I've tried several primers and this is by far my favorite. All makeup stays on all day and it does not irritate my eyes. It does not separate like other primers.

A little goes a long way

I really like this. I never really had issues with my shadow creasing but I find that this helps keep the pigment vibrant all day and it doesn't drift at all. I only need to use the tiniest amount and it doesn't matter if I put my eyeshadow on if it's still a little wet.

This is the first eyelid primer I've ever tried and it works really well. I've always had trouble with my eyeshadow staying put all day and this does the trick - even during my 12 hr work days! Happy me!

Love it

I really do love this eyelid primer. The reason for 4 stars and not 5 is because it takes a tad long to dry and set before I can put my makeup over. The one time I did not let it dry long enough, I ended up with black eyeshadow "stuck" in the initial position and it wouldn't blend well. Once I learned to put this on my eyelids while I lotioned my face and go about styling my hair before applying my makeup, I realized it works very nicely and actually keeps the makeup on overnight, even after sleeping! (Yes, I know, I should remove my makeup at bed time, but some nights I "forget.") I will definitely be purchasing this again!
