Works great!

I've tried a few different types of eye make up setters and this one has worked the best for me! Perfect amount too!

I've used better

It does the job for the most part, but it creases and crumbles itself! It sort of holds your eye make up in place, but you have to wait until it's dry, and then when it's dry, its cakey.

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.

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