I wanted to like this. i really did. I tried different ways of applying it and kept saying "i'll give this another chance". Like a lot of other reviewers said, this just isn't for oily skin. I feel like I could use coconut oil for an eyeshadow base and get the same effect that this gives me. It creases, doesn't last, and doesn't blend out well. I'm going back to shadow insurance.

Creased on my lids. Will go back to Milani's Eyeshadow Primer.

I love: the color, the ease of application, the wear time (up to 12 hours on me!), the price. the only criticism I have is to have a more sturdy lid.

I wanted to like this because it would save me from buying more expensive eyeshadow primers, but alas. :(

I'd say this product keeps my eyeshadow in place and creaseless for about 5-6 hours or so? It does not keep my eyeshadow in place for a full day (12+ hrs) of wear, which is what I need for it to keep my eye makeup lasting through my work day. I will use this product if I'm just needing to keep my eyeshadow looking nice for a brief evening out, like to dinner or a movie, that sort of thing. But I will not be repurchasing this after I use up what I have, because I want a product that will work all day.

I absolutely love this product, so you'd understand my surprise on the amount of negative reviews this had. I'm a NC35, very oily and absurdly pigmented eyelids. This concealer cancels out the pigmentation like. a. dream. The Mac Paint Points in Soft Ochre makes my pigmented look grey and not attractive at all. For staying power and creasing, I have hooded eyelids so creasing is always an issue... but this does a wonderful job keeping the shadows intact and it lasts a very very long time! I would pay more for this than its actual price. If you're considering to purchase this product, I'd say you should give it a go!

I have mixed feelings about this product. I do think it makes my eyeshadows last longer and it does intensify the colour of them as well. It's really thick, so it's easy to use too much but I find it works best if a very thin layer is applied. The packaging is fine, nothing special but it keeps the product from drying out which is good. Overall, I would not repurchase just because I would rather find a base I absolutely love rather than one I am okay with. I will finish up the pot but after that I will be looking for another one.

I have very average eyelids oil wise, but my eyelids are very sensitive (I'm allergic to liquid eyeliner and anything like it if that helps you visualize). This works fine, but I don't find myself overwhelmed by it. I usually just use my $1 elf primer and I feel like it does the same thing, if not a little less color correction on the kids than the NYX one. I would repurchase if I had to, but I don't find this to be anything special.

I have really oily eyelids and this really did nothing for me. Perhaps it made a smoother canvas for eyeshadow to be put onto, but as far as wear time and creasing, transferring, it did absolutely nothing. If you have really oily lids like I do, skip this and get Wet N' Wild Fergie For My Primas eye primer instead. It's absolutely great for oily lids.

This is such a good product this jar will last forever and you only need a little bit like a thin layer spread over the eye i use a small synthetic flat brush to apply this and like i stated above only use a small amount bc if you apply to much your eyeshadow will crease.. This makes eyeshadow not only pop and become much brighter but it will make it last all day and night i have this in the skintone the white and the white shimmery color out of them all i use the nude and the white the most. They are very creamy and easy to blend out..this is one of my favorite eye bases and its enexpensive this base is also good for covering any discoloring on the lids or veins that you might want to cover...i definitely recommend this product

Good eye primer, no complaints as far as the actual product. My complaint lies with the packaging. I would have to mess up a makeup brush to get product out so I didn't mess up my acrylic nails. When I'd use my finger, primer would get all up under my nails. So I did use up the whole jar (it lasted freaking forever!) but I had to use a makeup brush every time. I wish Nyx would skip the jars and package differently on their primers and concealers.
