If you are having trouble keeping your eyeshadow in the place you put it, then this is the product for you. The first time I tried it, sadly, my friend went into the hospital. This product past the test of tears first time out and passed. After all was said and done I looked into the mirror to freshen up, and I didn't need it. I was tragically beautiful and makeup still in place. My friend would have approved, had he been conscious. It was a surreal moment.
You do have to be careful about how you apply it. If you apply one eyelid lightly and one heavily, you will have two different results. If you apply heavily, you are committing to a full face of make-up because it's not really skin tone. It's darker in the jar than it is on the skin. Also as it gets thicker, it gets more opaque. Which then allows your eyeshadow to pop, which then makes it obvious you are wearing gobs of eye makeup. Which I know some people like that look, but it doesn't really fly in a small town. So if you don't want that look, do what I do and get a little round-bristled concealer brush and just give it a light layer.
I won't go so far as some say - can't live without product. However, for 8 bucks + free shipping, it does the trick and past the hardest test first. In that regard I would recommend it.
