    good product

    i find this product is a better value than a lot of the other primers. I'm not honestly sure if it makes a huge difference for extending wear of eyeshadow, but I do think it helps keep your eyeshadow more pigmented. definitely worth a try for the price

    This is definitely one of those "work horse" products. It performs well without being super expensive (actually I think I got mine for $1). It covers the blue veins on my already purplish eyelids, keeps my eyeshadow from creasing, and intensifies the colour slightly. Absolutely worth the money!

    I purchased this item on a whim after using urban decay's eyeshadow primer potion. I love this product. it applies smooth, stays on all day, has no weird fragrance and does everything you would like a primer to do. I have not found another primer like it. the only downside is that this product does not last long! I found one container to last only about 4 to 6 weeks, but at the price it is retailed at, still very worth it.

    Most eyelid primers don't work at all for me, as my eyelids are very oily; this one however works fairly well! I wouldn't say it comes close to UD Primer Potion, although for a fraction of the price it's definitely worth it for days when you're just going to work for a few hours or doing some errands. I wouldn't recommend this for a long or hot day as I doubt it will withstand that though I'm sure it's still better than nothing.

    Anyone who loves eyeshadow (like i do!) I would suggest using eyelid primer! This primer is good, I like how theres a brush compared to other primers that are just in a pot (such as NYX). The beige colour is good if you're using neutral colours however I feel like they should make a white one for brighter bolder colours. This primer doesn't make bright colours stand out as well as other white base primers. It's still good and I like the formula of it and find it goes on very easily.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This is not my favourite eye shadow primer, but it is definitely one of the best budget savvy primers I've ever used. It applies smoothly and keeps my shadow from creasing all day.
