I have this a while now but rarely use and when I do its often not for the intended use. I like pixi epoxy better, though that's too sticky, but here's why this doesn't work for me;
-shimmery, don't get why its shimmery, that shimmer shows through some shadows
-simply doesn't hold e/s in place on me that great, cream e/s worked almost as well
-too expensive given its eh on me
-just don't really get it or the hype

When I do use this I do as a highlighter under my brow alone, or even dotted on the area right where I have darkness under my eyes. It works better for me that way than to keep e/s in place.

I'm sooo glad I finally invested in a "higher end" primer. ELF's and NYX's primers were decent, though they would not last me a whole school day especially if it was 90+ degrees outside. With TFSI, I've worn my eyeshadow for about 11 hours (before I washed it off) and there was NO creasing! Lastly, the packaging is what made me choose this over UDPP (though UDPP came out with a squeeze tube, but in a "professional" size). I will definitely repurchase this again and again!

I love this primer so much, eyeshadow is worthless without it. This is a MUST HAVE. They could do a better job on the packaging though, the primer exploded out the top when I was squeezing it.I will still buy this until I die.

This stuff is amazing at keeping your shadows from creasing, fading, smearing and all that stuff. It's easy to apply and the packaging is super cute and practical. Only problem I had with it is that it separates, meaning that when I squeezed it a clear liquid came out before the actual product which is really annoying. I even tried shaking and squeezing the tube a little bit before I opened it but I still had that problem. It is great as a primer but I would not buy again simply because I like my UDPP a lot more.

This is the first high-end primer I've used, and it is, without a doubt, perfect. It's super easy to put on, doesn't even need time to dry, and keeps my lids from creasing for well over 12 hours, even when I go out and perform on stage. (I'm a dancer). One tube will last you forever, but when mine runs out, I'll definitely come back for more!

Too Face - Shadow Insurance, eyelid primer. Itís a little expensive but you get what you pay for. Quality - I never ever have eye creases and my eye make up will stay on perfectly till I take it off even 24 hrs later. Do an all nighter or workout - no problem!
It comes in a handy tube, goís on easy Ė I just use my finger. I use just a tiny bit Ė half a pea for both eye lids. The color is creamy light tan, I wouldnít say itís a good concealer but it helps a little. I use it because it keeps my eye shadow adhered like a rock! This works for me as I have oily skin and live in drippy hot Florida! Iíve tried several different brands and this one is way the best. It is the only one that I didnít ever have a crease no matter what I did.

This is my personal favorite eye primer. I have oily lids and this helps and it totally keeps my eyeshadow on for what seems like forever. This is a great product that I will use always. I really enjoy the squeeze tube also.

Great product and it works on me. I have somewhat oily lids and tfsi works for a long time. I have makeup on for longer than 10 hours and I'd say by then, my eyeshadow creased, but for the majority of the time, it did not crease. I love it anyway. Other than some creasing where my eyelids fold, there is no other problems. No leaking at the sides, no smears. only creasing. and creasing is no obvious either.

Normally people wouldn't be wearing makeup as long as I do anyway (I think). I go to school early and apply my makeup at 6am and get home by around 4-6pm - 10-12hours out.

I recommend it. I don't know if i'll repurchase because it is pretty expensive. But I'd had my tube for over a year (maybe 2?) and it's lasting a longg time and it might last another year :).

This is a really good alternative to UDPP, although for me UDPP lasts that extra couple of hours longer its just not worth the drying out, cutting in half hassle, plus i need to use a tiny bit of too faced to cover my lids. It lasts most of the day (8 hours-ish) without out *slight* creasing. I will be repurchasing this, unless they sell a better packaged, consumer sized UDPP in the U.K or if I'm feeling flash with my cash and try out Nars smudgeproof primer :)

An excellent primer for the eye area. I use it underneath my Bobbi Brown Gel eyeliner and I can see a difference! Even for my oily eyelids the eyeliner will stay put the whole day. If I don't use the primer than usually the eyeliner will start to smudge a bit after a few hours. It is expensive to buy in Australia (I think $43AUD from Kit) but much cheaper buying online shipped from US especially if you buy with other items.

Highly recommended, better than the $80 Lancome makeup primer which I have barely touched!
