This is a great primer for a buck. My HG eye shadow primer is Too Face Shadow Insurance but this is a close second. It actually dries faster. You can read my full comparison on my blog and see swatches.

Great primer. Does what it's supposed to do. Lately my liquid liner had been rubbing off between the outside corner of my eye and the "wing" of the liner. Looked terrible and drove me crazy. This primer keeps that from happening, and it keeps my shadow from creasing. Cheap and awesome.

I am in love with this primer and it's a dollar so I love it even more. Not a huge fan of the packaging, it's really blah, but I don't hate it either.
Try it, it's only a dollar!

For the money this is an excellent eye primer.
An afternoon of athletics coaching, running around with a bunch of kids playing sport and my eye makeup didn't budge.
No creasing, no fading and my eyeshadow stayed put even though I worked up a sweat.
I am super impressed with this budget primer and I won't be wasting my money on expensive primers in the future.
The only thing I don't like is the packaging, I would prefer a tube so I can apply product straight onto a brush. I don't like sponge applicators which go back into the product spreading bacteria, especially when your playing with your eye area.

You'll be amazed with how amazing this product is. No creasing, no fading and i sound like im doing an ad for them ahaha but im not. Its truly a great product. From the 3 primers, studio, mineral, and essentials line i love the essentials 1$ primer.
Why waste 20$ when u can get something that works just as good for 1$?

This product works so good especially for the price of it. It was $1 and works the same if not better than my $20 urban decay primer. Save your $19 for something else and get this primer instead!

This is the first eye shadow primer i have tried and it definitely does what it's supposed to and it's only 1$! Pretty awesome! I have no creasing, smudging or running of my shadow or liner throughout the day with this on underneath

Maybe I was expecting too much from this primer, but it really didn't do much on my lids. One thing I've noticed about this primer is that I have to apply eyeshadow while it's still wet on my lids or else the primer - which feels kind of silocone-y, will actually dry up and create a tight, slippery surface that barely holds any powder eyeshadow. When using a pigmentated eyeshadow, I'd rather skip this step and save some time; when using a crappy eyeshow, this primer does not make a dramatic change. For the price, I can't complain much but I won't repurchase. I'll try the mineral primer next time since there are less harmful chemicals in the mineral line.

Maybe I'm not doing it right but this actually creased my eyeliner (which has never happened to me) and made it more difficult for my eyeshadow to stay on my lids. I usually pull out the wand, put some on a clean finger, and tap it on my eyelid then wait for it to dry.
The color payoff was worse with this primer than without. I don't have oily eye lids or anything like that. I just wanted something to make my eyeliner smudge proof throughout the day because I work outside with little kids! This was only a dollar so I guess it wasn't a huge loss. I'll stick with just using a translucent powder as a primer.

I just purchased this on Friday and used it the same night. I decided to use with my new Wet'n'Wild vanity pallette also purchased the same day. To try and make this short went out friday night, passed out saturday morning, woke up again about 11am the next day and when i looked in the mirror i expected to see a monster but my eyes looked freshly done and perfect!!! Yes, it was terrible for me to not remove my make-up i know, BUT it was one of those nights lol... My eye make-up had not creased at all and was still intact and still looked like i just put it on. For my skin, yellow-toned, the primer was quite dry to apply. I actually didn't mind this. I let it dry for a minute before I applied my eyeshadows and off i went. Being that it was quite cheap - about $4 here is Australia and in comparison to my TFSI, I think it did just as good a job.
