Great stuff!

I really liked the way this balm went on. It went on smooth and kept my eye shadow on all day. I really think this works!

Comparable to other primers

I really liked this primer. I have combination skin and I did not notice any oily spots or make up running after a full day of wear. There was no creasing either which I have found to be a problem with other primers.

Not sure about this

I haven't done heavy eye makeup when using this, but I really didn't notice too much of a difference when using vs not using.

prevents the eyelid half circle

great primer, helps prevents eyeliner from ending up on the upper eyelid. Smooth and non-gritty, feels nice and soft on the delicate eye area.

nothing special

There are other brands of eye primer I like better. Eye shadow started to crease after about 3 hours of wearing.

Purchased

The product was light and sheer, and seemed to do a good job of keeping my eyeshadow in place for the evening.

Ok but not the best

This lid primer was ok but not the best. I did not feel it ever truly dried and my eye shadow didn't go on smoothly. Not that effective there are better options out there.

Great eye shadow primer
Purchased

I got this as a sample in my birchbox and am in love! I usually use too faced shadow insurance as my eye shadow primer. It does a good job but it dries a little chalky and is tinted a nude color. I like that thebalm Put a Lid On It is not tinted and has a silkier consistency. It did a fantastic job keeping my eyeshadow in place and did not affect the color of the shadow. I am definitely going to be buying the full size of this!
