Best eyelid primer
SampledPurchased

This product works amazingly well. My eyeshadow stays on from the time I put it on until I wash my face before bed. It also prevents eyeshadow from building up in the crease of the eyelid.

in love
Purchased

I LOVE this primer. I'm obsessed with it. I used my points to get it and was skeptical of eyeshadow primer before this. I want to use a primer to get the best wear out of my shadow. I have been using UD primer in eden, I really enjoyed that primer but it almost made my shadow stick TOO well..if that makes sense. My face make up would wear throughout the day but my eyeshadow was too stark in Contrast. It also leaves no room to fix mistakes. Once your eyeshadow is on theres no getting it off. With the balm primer it keeps your shadow on all day but leaves room for some wear and and to fix it if need be. It's not thick and goes on smooth. I would suggest this product to everybody.

Oily

This primer is oily on my lids, and it takes too long to dry. Also, by the time i get to work, my eyeliner is already smudging into the creases of my eyes and my eyeshadow fades fairly quickly throughout the work day. Not my favorite primer.

be patient, it's worth it!!
Purchased

I finally figured out how to use this stuff right. To get the optimum benefit of this primer, you need to use enough to cover your full lid, close your eyes and let it set in the air for 30 seconds or so before putting on your shadow. That's a little bit of a hassle, but it's WORTH IT. This is the best primer I've ever used. I can sleep in my eye shadow (don't judge) and it still looks as good as when I first put it on the next morning.

The Best Eye Primer!
Purchased

I have tried a few eye primers, this by far is the best of them all! My eye makeup is still firmly in place the next morning if I don't get a chance to wipe it off the night before and it looks almost as perfect as it did when I first put it on. I will buy this over and over again! You only need need the size of a pin head for each eyelid!

This makes my eyeshadow look fantastic! The primer really keeps my eyeshadow on all day, without it looking greasy. I recommended this to my sister and she loves it too!

Creamy formula, but nothing special
Sampled

I was not very impressed with this eyelid primer. The formula was creamy, almost too creamy, but did go on smoothly. I do not think it added any staying power to my eye shadow.

Great primer
Purchased

I have tried Urban Decay, which is a bit thick but holds shadow like a dream. I have also tried Nars eyeshadow primer, which comes in a tube with wand system that doesn't allow you to use up all the product. Now I have tried this little gem, Put A Lid On It. This stuff goes on silky smooth, holds shadow in place, makes shadow colors more vivid, and doesn't leave and funky edges; where the primer ends and eyeshadow extends past. Great primer.
