This is a very good eye primer. I have oily eye-lids and this primer helps my eye shadows to stay long and they don't crease. It's better than overhyped Elf eye primer, imo. The texture is thick and the packaging allows you to use this primer as much as you need.

This primer wasn't as good as I expected it to be. Some of my Urban Decay eye shadows faded considerably through out the day using this product. The color was almost totally gone. Others lasted a very long time and looked as good as they did in the morning at night time!

I had high hopes for this primer; read the reviews and everyone seemed to considerably like it. But, this primer made me break out so much! Breakouts would appear at the end of the day after I washed my face or the next day. I also had to wait for it to completely dry before putting on my foundation as it made even my liquid foundation look powdery or cakey. I liked how it came with the pump and you didn't need to use a lot as it spread well, but it made me break out too much!

This is my favorite eye primer, and I'm so happy I never will pay $18 for a tube of eye primer again. I have tried UDPP, but moved on because I didn't like the way it emphasized crepey-ness. TFSI was my former primer of choice, because it worked well without drying out my lids. This works exactly like TFSI for me, but I paid $4 for it, buying it during a 50% off sale at Discount Drug Mart. I'll repurchase as long as it is made.

Awesome eye primer! I didn't know what to rate the price, because I got it on super sale for $2 CAD. WHAT A STEAL!
Anyways, its consistency feels like UDPP and the Two-faced shadow insurance. I don't have either of those, but I've tested them out before.
It makes my shadows last all day and it makes my lids really smooth and soft so it's easier to apply my eye products.
It says you should let it dry a little before applying stuff on top.
But yeah, it's a nice primer and it doesn't crease.
I wish it was tinted though :3

I decided to pick this up while walking around Harmon, what the heck another primer won't hurt (probably my 15th one)
I don't have oily skin or lids but I like my eyeshadows to stay on long and creaseless, I must have velvety,smooth looking lids or I get really frustrated anyway................This primer really is excellent it's smooth and not clay like and really kept my eye shadow put for 10 plus hrs.
I have tried many primers Too Faced, Stila, UD, Lumene etc
This really is one of my top favorites and best of all it's inexpensive and effective, Lumene's is great as well but I haven't seen it at CVS so I don't know if its still around.
I went back to pick up Prestige's face primer since I was so pleased with the eye primer and that is excellent as well, this is my first Prestige purchase and definately not the last.

I will admit that I have never tried the UDPP or the Too Faced primers, but this is the first drugstore primer I have tried that really seems to work. I have extremely oily eyelids so eye shadow creases very badly on me. I have tried multiple ELF primers, but you know how it is with ELF: extremely hit or miss when it comes to the quality of the products. But this primer goes on smoothly, isn't oily, and covers the red veins I have on my lids and makes my shadow crease-less all day long. I can't vouch for increasing the vibrancy of the shadows, but I don't wear very dramatic eye makeup anyway.

I'm so happy I bought this even though I read less than glowing reviews on here first. I have to start by saying that I've been switching back and forth between UDPP and TFSI for a few years, and this works just as well on my oily lids. Yesterday was very humid and rainy, and my shadow stayed in place all day with no creasing. I love the nice squeeze tube design, and it is huge at .5 oz. It cost me 8.50, which still isn't that great of a bargain for a drugstore brand, IMO, but it is well worth it considering it works very well for me, and you get a lot of product. It's too bad this doesn't work for more people. Make sure you let this dry COMPLETELY before applying shadow, or else it won't work as well. Maybe that is the problem people have been having. This is definitely my best purchase in a while, and I will continue to purchase this as long as they don't quit making it. :)

I was looking for a cheaper eye lid primer since, though Urban Decay worked well, I felt it was too pricey. I tried this since it was half the price. It had zero staying power. It made my oily eye lids even oilier and within an hour or two my eye shadow was creasing and rubbing off. I returned it and spent the money on UD potion primer.

This only works for me for a few hours. My eye makeup looks great at first but is very creased by the end of the day. Had high hopes for this product. The texture and feel of it is nice though...

This did not work for me and my oily lids. I had high hopes for this due to the good reviews on Makeup Alley. I saw it at Ulta and grabbed it thinking "Yes, a low priced dupe for TFSS or UDPP".
I apply my makeup at 6:00 am and by noon I had MAJOR creases on both of my eyelids. I guess I'm just way too oily for this product. TFSI and UDPP both work for me so I am sticking with those two products.

This is a really good eye shadow primer! I had been using Urban Decay Primer Potion for 5 years and then moved on to Too Faced eye primer (can't remember the name). I really liked the Too Faced product the best. However, paying $18 for an eye shadow primer was no longer an option for me.
One day at Ulta I saw this Prestige product and decided to give it at try. For $8 and some change, what did I have to lose?
Well, I love it! I've been using it for 2 months now and I am an every day kind of makeup girl. it comes in a squeeze tube, applies easily, is transparent, is NOT moisturizing or drying, good texture and guess what? It works just as good as the other two products mentioned in this review. Definitely pick some up!

Until i come across another eye primer then in the meantime this primer is an ok eyeshadow primer, and i discovered this by chance as i went to Ulta to get something else and walked out with this gem. Let me say i have combo skin but my oil lids are super oily and nothing stays on my lid for more than an hour or two even my gel eyeliner by Black Radiance transfers to my upper lid, i have hooded eyes even when i apply a eyeshadow primer, I have tried the famous Two faced shadow insurance, i tried Udp, BH cosmetics tried some tips and tricks i learned about on Youtube and nothing worked until this. Its made by Prestige and it comes in a tube but it has a fine tip that ensures that just a small amount comes out which means you will use a tiny amount which is all you need and so its value for your money. Its 9.49 at Ulta i tested it out the night before by going to bed with eyeshadow on and it was still there in the morning, reapplied new fresh makeup and went to work and even right now that im writing this review which is 10.04 pm central time its still on my eyes.
Edit. Avon Eyeshadow Primer put this to shame so its no longer on the Holy Grail list
