I hate to say this, but I don't like this primer at all. It dries quickly, so it was difficult to spread across my eyelids and I kept getting it in my eyelashes. I think the formula is a little too thick for my liking. I do like the fact that it almost matches my skin tone, but I can see this primer looking more obvious to people who have darker skin. I also don't like the way this feels on my eyes after it dries. It feels like I put glue on my eyelids and I can constantly feel that it's there. When I look in the mirror with this on, it looks as if my eyelids are wrinkly because of how this stuff dries. Once again, this reminds me of glue.I also don't like how my eyeshadow looks after applying this primer. I have weird streaks of eyeshadow on my eyes that I can't fix because this stuff is hard to wash off. Instead of it making my eye makeup more vibrant, it seems to make it more dull. I'm really sorry for giving this a bad review, but this product isn't working for me. I hope I didn't get one that was expired or a bad batch. I thought I would like it because of it's reviews, but I've been very let down. I think I'll stick with my Sephora eye makeup primer instead.

I'm wowed that a drugstore primer could be this good. My HG is NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base and this unseated it. I love that this product dries clear-ish (at least on my N45 skin) and lasts all day. On an average day, I do my makeup at 7am and by the time I wash my face at around 10:30pm, my shadow is still going strong in vibrancy and wear. I don't have oily lids at all but I do sweat a lot and even in the balmiest NYC summers, I don't even have to check my eyeshadow to see if it's creased. Now, I tend to wear L'Oreal Infallibles during the work week and and on the weekends, I wear Makeup Geek and Ben Nye eye shadows -- all known for long wear on their own.I've used this primer for about 18 months now and love it so much that I keep a spare in my pocketbook, at my desk at work and at my mom's house so I'm never without.Of course price is nice, but I find that with a lot of really good drugstore products, some reviews are so price biased that quality sometimes takes a hit (I'm looking at you, WnW e/s) but I can honestly say that I've tried Palladio, NARS, UD, Ruby Kisses, Milani and Paula Dorf eyeshadow primers. This beats them all, no contest.

Hey ladies, so I am so happy that I purchased this. This is my HG eyeshadow primer 100%. So before I used the urban decay primer and mac, they are so pricey in comparison to this. And why pay more when you get the excellent quality for an amazing price? I paid 6$ for this. So when I used the mac primer I had I did start creasing about 6-7 hours into wearing it, so i would set my make up with a setting spray, which although worked, cost extra money. So heres how I use the wet n wild fergie primer. I first moisturize my face (put a little on the lids, just go over with my fingers) then wait about 20 min then put a bit of the primer on my lids, spread it. then wait a nit maybe 5 min I would say, and I do put pressed powder on my lids. I know that it does seem like a lot of time, but it really isn't. I just do other things in between waiting for the moisturizer and primer to absorb or dry, but we ladies multitask all the time. I have to say I do only use pressed eye shadow, so for the ladies using cream eye shadows you would have to do your research, but this is amazing for pressed shadows. the color stays put and at the end of the day i just feel my eyelids are soft and dry, no crease. I work 8 hours and under bright lights and then home home do house stuff, in all honesty I don't tough up my shadow throughout the day ever. And I don't worry about it creasing at all. In absolute love with this primer.

I LOVE this primer. I'm so happy I don't have to shell out around $20 for Shadow Insurance anymore. This product works wonderfully for my crease-prone lids, for both cream and powder eye shadows. I like the packaging (the labeling on it flakes off, not that it matters, since I'm not exactly bragging about my Fergie makeup to anyone) because it's convenient and sturdy. Wonderful, highly recommended, definite-repurchase product.

This primer is good! My eyeshadow stays nice all day (and I crease like crazy without primer). I have to set it though because is pretty tacky, but I don't mind. The only negative I can think of is if you get it somewhere your not applying shadow ( if you go to far in towards the nose) it's really hard to get off with a q-tip. And it doesn't work to well with cream shadows, it gets a bit patchy. But except for that I give it a huge thumbs up! Definitely worth a try!

Best eyeshadow primer if you haven't tried it try it! I don't know why I was spending twenty dollars plus for a primer when this one is just as good

This is the ultimate eye primer from the drugstore. I prefer it to UD's Primer Potion or TF's Shadow Insurance. I only gave the packaging a three because sometimes it squirts out too much and I feel like I waste product. I'm waiting to finish up a Maybelline Color Tattoo so I can put this product in that pot

Just a few days ago, ok, years ago, when I started using makeup there was no such thing as an eye primer. Needless to say, it was hard for me to jump on the expensive bandwagon that I didn't know I really wanted. In order to stay in line with my cheapness, I tried other things such as foundation, but that didn't work out the way I had hoped. At some point, I received a sample of UD primer and I discovered I NEEDED this in my life, yet, my wallet would not allow for the splurge.When I started seeing positive reviews of this product on YouTube, I traveled to my local Walgreens and forked over a few coins to try out the product. In love, end of story. Come by my house in the middle of the night and you probably will see residual eyeshadow still on!

The first eyeshadow primer I ever used was Urban Decay Primer Potion back in 2007. Since then, I've tried many. But it wasn't until recently that I gave in to trying Wet n Wild Fergie Take On The Day eyeshadow primer. No, I'm not a brand/high end snob. It's more so the fact a lot of celebrity endorsed product lines have been disappointing in the past. With all that being said - this is awesome. I tried applying this BEFORE concealer on my lids to see if it would make my concealer look smoother before eyeshadow. That was a mess. The biggest downside to this primer is once it dries... good luck blending. I ended up with reverse raccoon eyes.So I now apply it with sunscreen/concealer first... THEN primer. It works like a charm & actually does make the skin look smoother even though its on top. This primer is a light nude color but it's translucent once blended. I immediately have to apply eyeshadow before this dries. This primer will keep my eyeshadow from creasing all day on my oily lids. My concealer didn't crease either. That is surprising given I am using emollient concealer formulas for my eye area. Wet n Wild Fergie Take On The Day eyeshadow primer is like rubber cement once dry. A little goes a long way. As much as I praise it for being a good eyelid primer, I still in all honesty would not rec it to those with very dry skin. It doesn't have that silicone slip feeling, which is what a lot of dry skinned ladies look for. The only loophole I can think of is if you use a very hydrating/emollient eye cream before applying this. I will repurchase.

I originally thought that this eyeshadow primer was great and that it was a fantastic bargain. However, recently I've discovered that it's kind of hard to blend and that it sometimes cakes quite badly. Unfortunately, I used it for quite some time before noticing these bad qualities and now I'm wondering just how bad my eye makeup looked during that time:( This primer is supposed to be a good dupe for Urban Decay Primer Potion and I think it is. Primer Potion did the same exact thing so they're quite comparable on that score. If you're on a budget and need an eyeshadow primer, you can do quite well by purchasing this one as long as you're willing to blend it with a beauty blender or apply it with a large shadow brush. I've gone back to my high end favorite, Clarins, because, unlike Wet n Wild, it hides the discoloration on my aging lids, which is an important feature for me. I also like Estee Lauder's eyeshadow primer, although it doesn't have quite the same coverage as Clarins. I've also tried Benefit Stay Don't Stray, but the consistency was somewhat dry and it made my lids look crepey. I'm disappointed that this drugstore product didn't measure up because, like everyone, I'd prefer to save some $$$. But it wasn't worth it and is only a mediocre product that would be perfect for younger eyes that don't need any coverage. I'm giving it three lippies because I consider it an average performer and I plan on using the rest of the tube on those days when I wear shadow, which will provide some coverage. My shadow and liner do last longer when I use this primer, so it's not a total waste. And I do think it's an exact dupe of UD Primer Potion (which I also didn't think much of tbh). I'm sure it's a best seller for Wet n Wild. I recommend this product for the younger generation. However, if you're a bit older, check out the Clarins primer. I find it's a better all around product with Estee Lauder coming in a close second.
