This little gem is a foolproof way to ensure that your undereye concealer and eyeshadows stay put from morning to night (to late late night).

Didn't as an eyeshadow primer for me at all
Purchased

It's supposed to be an eyeshadow primer and concealer but it is definitely all concealer. The consistency of the product made my eyeshadow slide off my eyelids faster than it happens when I have no product on at all.

I usually get my eyeshadow primer from Urban Decay because it works so well but though I would give this a try since I had some points to spare. It just didn't work at all for me. I will definitely be returning to my normal brand.

bad

felt heavy and stung my eye lids. I prefer a different brand that I've found to be light and long-lasting.
bottom line: I would not recommend this product. Love some of their other products!

Not Happy

Super disappointed in this product. Based on the reviews I expected something better than what I was using. I eneded up doing a test and using my old primer against this one. At the end of the day I had one eyelid with no creases and the other with major creasing. Test over. This stuff did not hold up. I want my money back.

Effective

It is a bit heavy, but it works. It is great for long wear and doubles as a concealer in a pinch as well. It blends easily, but use in small doses to avoid cakiness.

Lives up to name

Love this product! My only issue is it does crease sometimes. I typically put it on entirely on both eyes let it dry a little then dab with a blender or my finger to blend any creasing, works perfect. My eyes make up stays flawless all day/night.

Great Primer

I use it under my eyes and on my lids. It keeps my concealer in place and my eye shadow. I think it works best when I use a light shade as the base for my other shadows.

Stays all day
Purchased

I used three dots under my eyes, three dots on my eyelid blend. Add my concealer for my dark circles and it holds and covers all day. My eye shadow will stay all day too. It really is great on days when I have to be at work at 6am for meetings and then dinner meeting with clients at 7pm. I don't have time to run home and reapply everything.
