Awesome product!

I apply this on my eyelids before eyeshadow. It helps my eyeshadows adhere better mind you I work 8-10 hour shifts at a restaurant where I'm usually running around sweating and feel greasy by the end of the night, but surprisingly enough my eyeshadow hasn't creased nor has the color washed off. I think this eye primer, because of the consistency, works best on eyelids that are normal to dry. user

Not better than the highend!

I have to preface this review by saying that I have very oily eye lids. The only product I normally use is Mac paint pot in painterly. I have found that this is the only product that gives me a long lasting look. I was so excited to try this product because I have seen youtube videos and read great reviews on it and for the price point I figured I had nothing to lose. By the end of my day my eyeshadow was all creasy and cakey and looked terrible. I also felt that it didn't give such a great base to apply my shadow. The shadows did not apply as smoothly as they do with the mac paint pot. user

Great price, works well

This is a great little product. I have only used the Urban decay original lid primer which I love. This one is not as creamy, and does look very white on the lid initially. But as you spread it out, it blends out and does not show. And it helps the shadows stay on just as well as the UD. I have dry skin and did not feel any particular tugging or drying with this product like I felt with the Too Faced shadow insurance. I am happy with the purchase. user

It works

I also use this around my eye to help my concealer stay in place. I was a little worried about the orange color at first- After a couple of uses, I realized I was using too much because it was settling into the creases of my lids and you have to (gently!) rub it in to your skin. When I use less than I was at first it did not crease. I use a tiny single dot for my entire lid, one on the inner corner and one or two dots on my under eyes. (I like to use concealer there) I am lighter skinned, so this may not be the same for people who are really light, but the orange color eventually blends to a skin color- which I like. Some primers tend to look unnatural and leave a white finish and this one doesn't look like I have anything on. I feel like this lasts all day for me. At this price, if you are curious I say give it a try. « less user

So good

Honestly this stuff is magical for the price. I was using La Splash until Ulta stopped carrying it (boo, Ulta!) and then switched to this and it works almost exactly the same (the only difference being that it is tinted instead of clear).This primer only creases if you apply too much and don't let it dry fully before applying eyeshadow over it. It won't crease with a thin layer and if you give it a few minutes to dry completely.I would prefer that it apply clear rather than tinted, but the tint makes it double as a concealer under foundation!There's no reason to buy the expensive name brands when this stuff works perfectly for making eyeshadow last all day (sometimes 2 days!). I use it almost every single day. No complaints.
