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.

Kept my Eye Shadows from Creasing

Went on creamy, which made me wonder if it was going to prevent my shadow from creasing but it did. I would def purchase and use regularly as a primer for my shadows.

Perfection

I am loving this eye primer. I had Urban Decay primer potion in Sin so it's nice that I have a white primer so I can use under my dark eyeshadows.

good stuff!

I like this product mainly because it doesn't irritate my the skin on my eyelids. It feels very hydrating. However, my eye make-up does not last through as much I would expect it to with a primer. Still works well for quite awhile and doesn't' dry out skin so it's basically a winner!

No crease!

This eyelid primer is really easy to apply and dries fast. Only a little goes a long way. And it lasts for hours. I work up to eight hours on my feet, always with dark eye shadow, and I tend to work up a sweat. Without any primer, I always end up with smudges and a crease. When I wear this primer, my shadow stays intact!

Fantastic

You use so little of this product! I use my sample every day and still have plenty left. It is so silky smooth and keeps shadow on all day. I think I will switch from Urban Decay now!

Great Primer
Purchased

After actually buying the full-size, I must say that the sample size from birchbox was a really great size! Like many others are saying, a little goes a long way. That makes the sample size a really good deal because you can get a lot of uses out of it. As for the full-sized product, I must say that it's pretty small, but because I know that I won't be using much at a time, I'd say it's worth it. My eyeshadows have a noticeable staying power compared to days without this stuff, and I'm happy with my purchase!
