Good Primer

This is a good eye shadow primer. Nothing fancy, works well to keep my shadow colors looking like they were freshly applied all day long. Would recommend.

Best eyelid primer I've ever used
Purchased

I work some long hours and I have never found a primer that literally keeps my shadow looking just as fresh as it does after I apply it in the morning. I received this as a sample in my January box, tried it and immediately bought a tube.

Not for me

This product not only stings my eyelids to put on but also makes the skin flake later in the day.

It works!
Purchased

I was skeptical, but the first time I tried it, my makeup looked fresh all day and didn't get creases until I rubbed my eyes (bad habit).

Love it!

I'd never used a primer before, but this one let me see how much I've been missing. It's incredibly smooth, and helps me keep my eyeshadow on all day long - even if I have to hit the gym right after work!

Keeping my eyeshadow where it is supposed to be

I have never used a eyelid primer before putting on eyeshadow. My friend received this in her box as well and said it was a great product to use, so I gave it a shot that next day. I can't believe I had never used it before. My makeup typically is worn off by the end of a long day or a long night out, and this kept it looking flawless the whole time!

Loved my sample so I bought the full size. It is a little thicker consistency, but love it even more! Keeps my eye makeup looking fresh all day!

Lovely

This gives a great base for by aging eyelids. Alone the skin on my lids is very crinkly and hard to work on when applying make up. With this base I have a much better canvas to apply liner and eye shadow
