Best Eye Primer Out There!!

Believe me, i have spent quite a bit of money over the years trying to find the best eyelid primer out there that will keep my eye makeup to stay put without creasing, fading, etc... and i have finally found it! Put A Lid On It has worked wonders for me!!! I love it especially when using mineral eye shadows, helps them to stay put rather than just crumble off my eyelid. Could not be happier with the results i have seen with it. Will definitely purchase the full size before my sample runs out.

smooth
Purchased

This product was so light and silky. My eye shadow looked just as fresh at the end of the day and no creases!

Feels good

I tried this primer a few times and it was creamy and soothing going on. I didn't find it as effective as keeping eyeshadow put as my previous primer by urban decay so will not be purchasing.

Worked Great!

I took this on a trip to Florida and was surprised at how much I liked it. I have been an UD primer user for years and didn't really think anything else could beat it, but I loved the way this primer seemed to make my eyeshadow "pop" a bit more. It went on very smooth (a little goes a long way!) and lasted all day. I will definitely switch to this when my other primer is used up.

LOVE IT!

This stuff is great, it doesn't dry out your lids, it really brings the color out in your eyeshadow, and everything stays put once it's on (something I have a lot of trouble with!)... I love it.

No melting!!
Purchased

My eyeshadow usually melts during the day since I have a busy and full schedule. But this primer holds it in place! I'm able to wear my eyeshadow morning to night without smudges or melting. Buying this for sure!

Best Eye Primer
Purchased

I received this Eye Primer in my January box and decided to give it a try. My skin tends to run very oily and I have a very hard time keeping eyeshadow on throughout the day, often having to reapply multiple times. I tried this on first thing in the morning and BOTH days my eyeshadow stayed put. Winter miracle! I even went to the gym and it didnt budge. Definitely buying the full size version!

Eye makeup stays put with this product! Pretty great!
Purchased

This product is pretty great! My eye makeup stays put with this primer. It really leaves my eyelids feeling soft and and ready for shadow without leaving a greasy residue. My only complaint is that it kind of stings for a second before it dries... and I don't have sensitive skin. But it's not so bad that I wouldn't use it on a regular basis. It's a pretty great product! My eye makeup definitely goes on more smoothly and stays put!

nothing special

This takes a while to dry on your lid. I can't really tell the difference in terms of eyeshadow longevity when using this product vs not using anything. But to be fair, I pretty much feel that way about all eyelid primers.
