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.

Doesn't work as well as others

I've used Put a Lid On It for a few weeks now and I expect more from an eyelid primer. The texture feels greasy and creases even with the lightest application. Eye shadow does stays put for the majority of the day with PALOI, which is the critical point of an eyelid primer, and for that, I gave it 3 stars.

Overall, it doesn't compete with my current eyelid primer, so I will not be switching.

I like it

I love the texture--it feels really good going on the lid. Very moist and easy to apply. Definitely helped control the creases I typically get after a few hours.

LOVE!!

This eyelid primer is awesome. By far the best I've ever tried, however be careful - a little goes a long way. Keeps my eyeshadow looking fresh all day and helps keep my eyeliner from smudging. WIll definitely purchase when my sample runs low!

It works!

I love how creamy and smooth the primer glides on my eyelid. The tube seems small but a little goes a long way! I love that eyeshadow last more than 8 hours when I wear this even though my lids are oily.
