Great product

This was a great base for my eyeshadow. I normally have a problem with oil and my makeup smearing but this had great staying power.

Liked it

I've never used a product of this type before, so I don't have anything to compare it to. It seems to do what is described. I didn't see the creases in my eye shadow that sometimes appears. I guess I'm not crazy about the price. Seems a little high for something you prime your eyelids with.

Lids

I loved that it was sheer and light when putting on my lids. I'm always worried about products drying out my skin on my eyelids. I don't think I wear enough eyeshadow to know if it makes it stay on longer.

Good but I wouldn't use everyday

This is a good production and it has its purposes. I wouldn't wear it everyday as my eye shadow's stay on pretty well. I think it's great for a night out to a concert and anywhere you might get a little sweaty.

It works for under the eyes as well to smooth my makeup out where my wrinkles aren't so visible.

Comparable to other primers

I thought this eyelid primer was on par with others on the market. It was thick and it kept my eyeshadow on a little bit longer than it would normally stay put. It didn't rock my world, but there's certainly nothing wrong with it!

put a lid on it

I'm a huge believer in eyeshadow primer. My shadow won't even make it to afternoon without it. I have used other primers before that do the job, but this product had a great smooth texture that made the shadow go on flawlessly. Not to mention it lasted through the whole day!

Not for me

I recently used this product and I did not like the way it felt on my eyelid. It felt really heavy, and almost gave me a tingling sensation. I will say that it did keep my eyeshadow looking fresh for me all day.

Lasts all day

I got this lady month and it works great. I normally use urban decay but I think this is better. I will buy it when my UD runs out.
