Literally all my makeup has melted off after an overheated walk and my eyes are perfection. Crease, lid, highlighter (the balm also). And you use so little on a daily basis that it's a great value. The Balm continues to provide my favorite box item!

Amazing

This is the best eyelid primer I have ever used. It keeps my eyeshadow in place throughout the whole night!

Smooth

I really like this product. The sample is a great size for makeup bag or travelling. It goes on smooth and is a wonderful primer. Might be buying this one after my current one is out!

Great product

It keeps my makeup in place all day, not greasy at all. I wear this everyday and a little goes a long way so it's definitely worth the price.

Meh.

I wanted to love this so much, however, I found it a bit greasy and didn't hold certain eyeshadows well. The silky texture that it has makes you think it will help glide the color on your lid, but sadly no - not for me at least. Patchy results = a no go for me. I guess I'll be sticking with UDPP.

I love love love this product! It came in my January birchbox and it was amazing! My eyeshadow stayed on all day after using it.

Amazing!!

I have every primer out there and this is by far the best. At first, it goes on like an illuminating eye cream, but then it dries down to a beautiful base of coverage and eyeshadow stays put for hours!! Will definitely be purchasing the full size!!

Not better than other primer

It kept my eyeshadow on all day and served its purpose as a primer, but I didn't find it superior to other cheaper products.

Very smooth and makes a difference

I loved this sample! My eyeshadow usually doesn't last very long due to my skin type, but this kept it in place much longer than usual!

Greasy lids gone

I go to school long hours and by the end of the day my eye make-up is all over face like a raccoon after using a small amount I noticed my eyeliner stayed on. Totally worth it!
