Just okay

This eyelid primer was nice- the texture is smooth and it's very light, easy to blend. However, I did not think it prolonged my eyeshadow very well. After a couple of hours, I noticed that my eyeshadow was losing it's luster.

Great primer!

I usually use Urban Decay's eye primer and I love that one. This product had a lighter/thinner feel to it, but it worked just as well for me. Eye shadow stayed on just as well as my beloved Urban Decay.

Stays on Lid

I'm always skeptical of products like this because they tend to promise a lot and not deliver but this one is amazing! Just a little dab of it on my eyes makes my eyeshadow & eyeliner stay put all day long and no creasing! It's not greasy and blends into my skin quickly.

Solid primer

This product worked great and my makeup stayed on but it worked so well it was pretty tough to get the eye shadow off at the end of the night.

pretty good

I was happy to try this out as im just begining to experience this line of make up. So far ive used it on a light look and it worked well. Not sure if itll have the same effect with darker makeup bt im excited to try and find out! Not greasy, not too thick, no iffitation. I'm happy

I was skeptical, but I really love this!

This product does exactly what it says it will. I love how much eyeshadow I save because I don't have to pile it on- the first layer sticks. It is a necessity in my beauty routine now, but I gave it 4 stars because it is not a game changer. Worth a buy!

My eye shadow last all day now

I never saw the need for eye primer until now. Before I would just use my face primer on my eyes and that worked ok, but put a lid on it is creamy and hydrating so my shadow doesn't crease. Highly recommend it!

Does the job

I like this, but I don't love it. I guess it's personal preference, but I like a primer that does a bit more evening out of my lids, and this one is more on the clear side. It definitely feels smooth, prevents creasing, and maintains the color of both my liner and shadow better than if I were to go primer free, however. I also didn't experience any drying like I have with other primers, so that's a plus.

The balm is the bomb

This eyelid primer helped my eye shadow stay in place all day and retain it's shimmer without creasing. I would definitely buy this product!

It works!

I am not someone who likes to re-apply my makeup throughout the day, even when going from day to night. This primer works great for keeping my eye makeup on, which is usually all but gone by 4pm each day.
