I have VERY oily eyelids. You can fry bacon on these eyelids. I recently started wearing gel eyeliner and was disappointed at how it would rub off on my top lid, and kind of break apart throughout the day. I heard great things about the primer from nars and decided to take a chance on this expensive product. I left the gel liner on one eye with no primer and then primed the other lid before applying my eyeliner. I left it on around the house for about two hours. The primer worked SO WELL. It mattified my lids and kept the oiliness at bay. The liner didn't rub off on the primed eye and the naked eyelid was almost void of eyeliner after two hours. The primer allowed my gel to stick where it was supposed to, without it the liner transfers to the top of my lid. The applicator is nice, and not messy. But I wish there was more products. The wand takes up most of the tube, tricking you into thinking there's more product than there is. I took off a star because of the price, 25 dollars. My liner is about 7 dollars, so I hope this product lasts me at least a few months.

::update:: this primer has lasted me 5 months, and will probably last me at least another month! so it reallllly is worth the money, and I changed my review to 5 stars.

This product is phenomenal. I have been using the Lancome primer for under my eye-shadow, but this is light years ahead. It literally leaves your eye-shadow on all day. I will never buy another primer except this one. It truly is amazing, and I apply my eye shadow in the morning, and after an entire day, up until 8pm it looks like I had just applied it. It stops all smudging, wearing away or oiliness. Highly recommend it!

I had used Bareminerals cream eyeshadow primer for years and tried this last week. It will be replacing Bareminerals! It dries quickly (to the point of other reviews, definitely let it dry before applying shadow) and it works great with cream and powder shadows.

It dries completely clear, no shine or color. Here's my complete detailed comparison of the two primers: [...]
Overall, 5-star product and just a tiny bit needed means it will last a long time for the price!

I have used many shadow primers over the last few years & I was recently shopping for a new one when an associate suggested this one. It is amazing! No creasing, it dries clear and your shadows & liners last until you remove them. I have oily lids & even with primers, my shadows used to slide off, not this one, yes, its a bit more pricey, but very worth it! And a little goes a long way, definitely worth the few extra $$$.

THIS LIGHT WEIGHT EYESHADOW PRIMER/BASE IS PERFECT. IT COMPLETELY DISAPPEARS ON YOUR LIDS AFTER APPLICATION, BUT CREATES A CANVAS, A BASE, TO INVISIBLY HOLD ALL FURTHER EYE MAKE-UP IN PLACE FOR THE WHOLE DAY....I PROMISE!

I WAS HESITANT TO USE AN EYE BASE BECAUSE I HAVE VERY SENSITIVE EYES. BUT ONCE I TRIED THE PRODUCT, I CAN'T DO WITHOUT IT. IT NOT ONLY PRESERVES THE COLOR AND PLACEMENT OF ANY FURTHER EYE MAKE-UP, BUT ALLOWS THE "TRUE COLORS' OF YOUR SHADOWS TO BE SEEN.....AND NEVER SMUDGED OR WORN AWAY.

YOU WON'T BE SORRY!

One of my favorite items of makeup I've ever purchased. Put it on as a base for eyeshadow to keep it from getting in creases, getting that faded look, and to keep eyeliner from smudging. Or, use it as a base without any eye makeup and it keeps the oils at bay. Easy to apply and, since you don't need much, it lasts for a long time. Definitely will buy again once mine runs out.

Stops creases, keeps makeup in place, very matte finish. Goes on white, but you really can't see it once it's on. Has lasted me a long time. Works better than other bases I have tried (Laurea Mercier, Trish McEvoy, Clinique).
