Ours is a forever love

This stuff is awesome. It goes on somewhat greasy, but don't let that fool you. Once you put your makeup on top of it, it will be dry and WILL NOT MOVE until you take it off.

My skin tends to like making oil, and my eyelids are no exception. Powder eye shadow tends to migrate on my eye and make nasty looking creases within an hour of leaving the house. Not with this eyelid primer. It stood up to Mardi Gras in muggy, humid Galveston, Texas. What else need I say?

Really Like This

I've been using a eye primer by another brand for awhile, but went ahead & tried this one because I love my other theBalm products so much. I like it a lot. It definitely helps keep my eye makeup in place. It'll be a tough decision when it's time to buy either this one or my old brand.

Really like this!

This is a fantastic primer. I tried this side by side with my current primer, and it won hands down.

Strange

This came as a sample in my January birchbox. After reading the reviews, I have to believe that my sample must have been bad because it was oily, separated (like oil/water) and didn't seem to dry on my eyelid (stayed wet). Even with the strange texture issues, I also didn't notice that it did anything in particular, one way or the other might as well have not used it at all).

I love this!

I love this stuff! It is not shimmery, unlike some eye shadow bases. I have very oily skin and by the end of the day I barely have an eye shadow crease. Keeps my dark shadow looking good all day.

I've never had much luck with eye primer because my lids are super oily. I absolutely love this product. I travel a lot with my job, so i'm not often in front of a mirror for touch ups. Whatever i put on my face when i leave the house in the morning has to last all day....and this does! I tend to wear shadows that have a bit of shimmer to them, and they stay in place all day with this as my primer. I don't have to worry about it all ending up in the crease anymore and it's great!

Eye makeup stays in place for 12+ hours

This is a great primer. I have sensitive skin and the primer does not irritate my skin and keeps eye makeup in place for 12+ hours (from a long day at work to dinner meetings).

Not a fan

I wasn't a fan of this product, it went on like a lotion. I prefer my primer to be more tacky than anything.

Love it!

It works great and makes my eye makeup stick all day! I also love that it goes on smooth and I have no lines at the end of the day!

Good, but not great.

I love primer and I have oily skin, so it is a necessity to keep my shadow from creasing and rubbing away. This primer works, but the texture of it is just a little greasy. I just wanted it to feel a little more matte.
