Great for all skin types even aging skin

I was having a really hard time paying this amount for an eyeshadow primer since I don't wear shadow daily. After trying multiple less expensive ones I finally just gave up and bought the NARS primer. Am I glad I did! 1. It goes on translucent which was really a plus because I don't have the steadiest hands. 2. Every single primer I tried showed every single line, dried out my lids or made my lids look crapey (sp?) but not this one! It goes on smoothly and really evens out the tone of my lid without making it look dry and papery. Even with the evened out tone, it doesn't change the color of my lids (I'm sure it does a bit but not as much as the tinted ones). 3. I have a new love for shadows now that I know what the color can look like with a good primer.I spent more money trying many other primers when I should have just bought this one in the beginning. Just get it in the first place, you absolutely won't regret it. Less

Pros:- makes eye shadows appear more vibrant- if you have oily eyelids i think this would be great because i've noticed that it does a good job of controlling oil- prevents creasing- prevents fading- eye shadow blends better- makes anything you apply over it smudge-proof- it's thin and lightweight so you really can't tell there's anything on your eyelids- it's fragrance free- it has never irritated my eyes- eye shadow still looks great at the end of a 12 hour dayCons:- if you apply this to dry skin it can emphasize the dryness, so maybe this isn't the best option for people with dry eyelids- that's literally all- this stuff is amazing- ??????- have a nice day

Hands down best primer!

Great product. I’ve tried a lot of eyeshadow primers and hated them. I love the urban decay face primer but despised the eyeshadow primer (it stayed wet on my lid and transferred onto my brush and onto my Tom Ford Eye shadow and ruined the shade). This Nars primer is wicked! It dries instead instantly, doesn’t feel bad on the lids, keeps my shade lasting from 7am to 11pm... possibly even longer, and no creasing! Buy it! Worth it.

Don't believe the hype

It may be great for people with oily lids but not for those with dry skin. Even with all the prepping, my skin can be dewy but the second I put this on my eyes, it makes me look like I have 85 year old eyelids. Eyeshadow becomes pasty and crusty AF. A total waste. My Zoeva eye primer kicks this in the pants.

Perfect primer for eyes!

I thought I found a great eye primer by Laura Mercier but it turned out to dry down and make my eye lids look less than smooth. This product is simply amazing, it goes on beautifully, and you simply gently pat all over the lid (a little goes a long way). I get the right amount of tackiness to hold onto shadow and provide payoff and t does a great job keeping my lids smooth and my shadow in place and really pop. I do not experience any creasing and my look lasts all day. Glad I was told about this. I am not a big NARS consumer but, this is a new go to and will purchase again.
