Keep in mind this is not an 'eye shadow base' like some other products that you can wear alone for a hint of coverage & color. This is a proper 'primer' made to keep a product in place. I bought this to keep my under eye liner from smudging & for this purpose, I have to say it works great. I would not use under eye liner without it! However, I find the packaging makes this product challenging to apply. It has a doe foot applicator that is too large to fit under my eye & ends up coating my lashes! I use a mini q-tip to apply the product instead. It comes out of the tube white & I find that it leaves a white-ish film on my skin that is not completely transparent. I also find the product to be a little too thick to spread evenly. IMO, NARS needs to work on this product further - but it does keep eye liner in place.
