    I like this primer for a few reasons. Firstly, you can't go wrong with the cost - it is super affordable! Second of all, it is super lightweight, and it absorbs very quickly on the eyelids to provide a perfect base for your eye shadow. It isn't too liquidy nor too heavy, but is has a perfect texture. Great product!

    So, let me state that I'm no make-up pro ... but this stuff rocks! I can't believe I went 15 make-up wearing years without using an eyelid primer! What a difference it makes!

    A little goes a long way, just a dab or two lightly patted across the lid does the trick. Allow to set before applying eyeshadow, and voila! Lovely colour, the way it was intended to be! It goes on smooth, leaves the lids in perfect condition for make-up application.

    Would definitely recommend this stuff - and the price is unbeatable for the quality!

    This is a good primer for the price. The quality isn't as good as other primers Ive tried though. I use this frequently especially if im just messing around with makeup and trying different looks at home. i don't find this primer really greasy and it will hold your shadow. Overall it does the job and works alright.

    I like this product, however I find it to be slightly thick and difficult to apply gently on the eyes. It does extend the wear of the eyeshadow and when I run out of face primer I do use this on my face.

    This primer is SO cheap but works wonder. It covers little imperfection on your eyelids. It is simple to use with the applicator and it is not greasy. Love it! I really don't need the urban decay one.

    A really great product for those cihcks on a budget! Definitely something that I would not mind re-purchasing over and over again. This primer works remarkably well for it's price, it's lightweight and smooth, and relaly brings out my eyeshadow and makes it last all day. I love how they include different colour selections for skin or eyeshadow looks.

    Great bang for your buck! The colour really neutralises my darker eyelides. It applies creamy and dries a bit sticky. Definitely keep eye-shadow on for a few hours. Doesn't crease too much. Good product and easy to apply. I wish there was stores near me that still sell this.

    This eye primer works great! It covers the veins on my eyelids which I love, and it is super long wearing! Doesn't crease and holds on to my eyeshadow all day long. One problem that I've seen with other eye primers is that they're too oily, but this one is matte and works wonderfully. The price point is also wonderful! I find the eyeshadow applies smoother if I set the primer with a powder first.

    Works great. Apply the smallest amount on your lids to allow eyeshadow to let way longer. Only issue j have with this product is it has a scent to it that I don't think is nessecary and it irritates my eyes slightly.

    This eye shadow primer honestly isn't the best...
    It is so thin, and if anything I think it makes your eye makeup crease even more than it would without the primer, shade is fine though. has a light shimmer to it but goes away once blended in.
