Love this product, but I don't feel it works as a primer at all. I definitely creases but the colour is lovely.

I've used this product consistently since 2008, and no matter how many other primers I use (Too Faced, Urban Decay, NYX jumbo eye pencils) I always come back to this! It's perfect for an everyday daytime look. Looks good on its own with just a light brown matte in the eye crease, or I've lately been pairing it with Urban Decay's Naked 3 palette. The pink base really makes those UD shadows pop! It's also great to neutralize stained eyelids, or to just make your eyes look more awake in the morning. I will always continue to repurchase this.The only thing is that the packaging sucks, but I store it upside down to prevent it from drying out.

I actually really dig this stuff; to be honest, it is hands down THE BEST eyeshadow primer I have ever used. In my opinion it blows Urban Decays Primer Potion out of the water (I don't know about anyone else but UDPP completely made my eyes water and eyeshadow crease and crepe everytime), it works way better than Benefits Stay Don't Stray and even trumps Too Faceds Shadow Insurance. It actually costs less than the aforementioned primers and the little jar stays fresh and seemingly lasts forever! The jar packaging isn't so bad for personal use I find. This primer stays put, looks fantastic on its own and breathes such life into eyeshadows applied on top! For bright colors, this paint pot layered under NYX Milk turns the most questionable shades into stellar superstars!! Also wears well on its own, covering bluish veins and slight discolourations if you want a neutral look. Will definitely repurchase and cannot recommend enough!!

Well, this is definitely not an eyeshadow primer, that's for sure! I bought this after reading so many makup artists rave about how great it was as a primer, but on me it creased within the hour. Under eyeshadow (worn as a primer) it's a complete disaster but I can wear it on its own and the creasing is not so noticeable. It is a nice neutral colour on me which neutralises any blue and red on my eyelids. I'll use this up by wearing it on its own, but I won't repurchase.

Painterly keeps my eyeshadow in place all day, whether or not I wear a clear primer under it, and does a perfect job of cancelling out redness/veins on my lids. It also looks good enough on its own that I sometimes wear it alone, with just a bit of mascara, on "no-makeup makeup" days when I don't feel like doing anything fancy. It lasts forever (I've been using the same jar for over a year, and I use it almost every day), and the consistency is still just as creamy as the day I got it.For a while I was using a Maybelline Color Tattoo in a similar shade to do the same job, but the Color Tattoo was patchier and the pot dried out within a few months. Painterly is worth every penny, and I have nothing bad to say about it.

This was one of the first products recommended at the MAC store when I started using eyeshadows. I thought it was so wonderful at first--such a gorgous cool color and great makeup base. After a couple of months, however, it made my eyelids loook crep-y and wrinkled though I swear it didn't at first. Maybe my eyelids have changed, or maybe the formula dried out. I just don't know. Had to put it aside for now until I figure out what's going on. Very bummed since I really lked it.

If you are in the yellow skin tone zone, no worries about the pinkish shade of this product because it blends away. It looks more natural than Soft Ochre on medium skin tones. It stays on and lets you shadows and liners look fantastic. Once I wear this, the whole attention goes to my eyes versus my foundation or other makeup so very little of the rest is needed. Great product and highly recommended.
