Primer

This primer is decent, but the texture is a little weird. I prefer Stila's, Benefit, or Urban Decay's primer over it.

Stays put!

I really love this eye primer. I've tried many other brands before but this one really seems to work. My eye makeup goes on very pigmented and stays put all day. Make sure it has a second to dry before applying shadow though.

The Best Primer Ever

This is the best primer I have ever used! A little goes a long way and my eyeshadow stays on for 16+ hours a day without ever creasing. Great product at a low cost!

Great Primer

This primer is light and effective - only a small amount is required, but it lasted all day! My eyes are deep set, and I often end up with all my eyeshadow in my eyelid creases, but this was solved with this primer. My eyeliner and eyeshadow stayed in place all day thanks to this product.

Put a Lid on it

I really like this product. It is very creamy and since eyes are pretty small, it lasts for a long time. it also smells good.

Great Primer

This primer goes on silky and light. It has a slight shimmer but blends in very nicely with my skin. It brings out the true colors of the eyeshadow and stays on smudge free for hours.

great stuff but costly

This eyelid primer is certainly velvety and really does help your shadow stay put for the whole day. I love these types of products, but you get such a small quantity for the price that it's pretty expensive.

Amazing
Purchased

I love this product. It's easy to apply, long-lasting, and doesn't crease like some other eye primers. My eye shadow stays on nice throughout the day with no issues. I also have sensitive eyes, and this doesn't seem to affect them in any way.

Kind of Greasy

At first I thought it felt greasy when it was on my eyelids, but it does a decent job of making your eyeshadow last through the day/night!
