A good little travel size.

The texture is a bit watery for my taste, but it does a decent job. I still love my NARS eye primer over it though. :)

Great primer

I got this in my January birch box and I've used the entire tube. It works much better then my other primer I had used in the past. Time to switch it up! I would highly recommend it.

greasy...but it works!

The primer works great but I was surprised by the greasy consistency. Most primers have a thick and sometimes chalkiness to them, but this one is very light and a little greasy when you first apply. But it works! Did not irritate my eyes as all.

Love the base it provides

Love using a lot of different kinds/colors of eyeshadow. This primer gives a great surface for the eyeshadow to stick to and show. I also don't end up wih eyeshadow creases within an hour.

So good!

This eye primer is amazing! I don't wear eyeshadow all the time, but I even just put it under my foundation and it keeps creases at bay. And let me tell 'ya, when I put it on under eyeshadow, it's not going anywhere soon.

I've tried quite a few primers and this one always has me coming back to it. It lasts longer than all the others i've tried and doesnt crease

I do not usually use an eye primer, but this stuff really works! Say goodbye to smudged eyeliner:) this helps it stay in place all day long.

Wow! I'm hooked! I just purchased this item from my January box, and I had never tried any eyelid primers before, and was blown away. We had a trip this week and I used it all 4 days of our trip, and my eye makeup survived two, 6 hours drives, 10 hours a the hopsital one day, and 14 hours of shopping another day. When we arrived home last night, after putting my makeup on at 7am, saying goodbye to my family, shopping a little, driving 6 hours, napping, and finally going to bed at 10pm, my eyes looked like I had just put my makeup on, not wearing for 15 hours and taking it off. Don't let this one get away from you!!

Good, but my eyes are too sensitive for this.

My eyes are ridiculous and start itching with almost any kind of primer. I am sure that this would be great for someone who is comfortable wearing primer and wears eyeshadow every day!

LOVE LOVE LOVE

I absolutely love this product! My eyeshadow never made it through the whole day, and since I've been using this product it stays in tact -- rain or shine! =) I have even made the mistake of falling asleep with my make up on one night and was surprised to see my eye shadow shimmer still there in the morning. A definite must buy in my books!
