Keeps my eyeshadow on longer

I've never used an eyeshadow primer... didn't think it would make that much of a difference, but I got a sample in my birchbox so I gave it a try. At first it felt a little greasy, but once I had my eyeshadow on it was completely dry. Normally by the end of the day I don't have much eye makeup left on, but theBalm primer did a great job of keeping my eyeshadow exactly how it was at the beginning of the day. I'll defiantly be buying this product in the future!

Decent product

It does a nice job of keeping eyeshadow on. I used it for an evening event, slept with it on, and my shadow looked pretty decent in the AM!

Not a fan

Too thick for my liking and I could hardly remove the product when it was time to take it off. I'd stick with SmashBox or another primer.

This is a WONDERFUL product!

My eyeshadow stayed intact all day -- I didn't even have to redo my eye makeup for the night! I definitely recommend it!

Am I crazy, or does this moisturize too?

I've been using this balm every day since receiving it in my January BB. The little sample has gone a long way! It not only helps shadow stay put throughout the day, but makes my lids feel soft and moisturized. Other primers have made my lids dry, so this is a nice change. Love it!

LOVE this stuff.

This is the perfect eyelid primer. Keeps the eyeshadow on all day. Goes on very light. I never used to think primers were that important, but now I will never put shadow on without it. Highly recommended.

works great!

I really like this stuff a whole lot! it works better than the ones I have used in the past. It held on place until the next morning! its a quality sample so once it runs out I will repurchase.

Probably one of the best eye primers on the market!
Purchased

Outside of the cutest and the most clever packaging, I absolutely love the texture of this eye primer. I've used this with my high end shadows and drugstore shadows and found that even the cheapest shadow looks better and stays on longer with this primer. I'm really starting to dig The Balm products.
