Love it

I love this product, but I'm not sure whether it's better than my usual Urban Decay. Still, I'm very much enjoying the sample!

a little goes a long way

You really get a lot out of this product, a little bit goes a long way. My eye makeup stayed on through a sweaty workout! I'm a believer.

Great at what it does

So, I'm not big on wearing eye shadow.. probably because I constantly rub my eyes and it comes off by mid-day. Not anymore! This product works well and doesn't feel like I'm smearing grease over my lids!

lightweight and effective

This primer felt lightweight (not greasy) and definitely helped my eyeshadow to last all day. I will definitely use this moving forward!

Purchased

I have tired this,and it does the job. I have tried other primers,and I like the fell and staying power of this one. yes it does seem olily,but not bad. I'm letting my daughter try it too.

Works great!

I've tried a few different types of eye make up setters and this one has worked the best for me! Perfect amount too!

I've used better

It does the job for the most part, but it creases and crumbles itself! It sort of holds your eye make up in place, but you have to wait until it's dry, and then when it's dry, its cakey.

Great stuff!

I really liked the way this balm went on. It went on smooth and kept my eye shadow on all day. I really think this works!

Comparable to other primers

I really liked this primer. I have combination skin and I did not notice any oily spots or make up running after a full day of wear. There was no creasing either which I have found to be a problem with other primers.

Not sure about this

I haven't done heavy eye makeup when using this, but I really didn't notice too much of a difference when using vs not using.
