I was so excited to get this, it is my only NARS item and I'm pretty disappointed. It is really hard to build up and when you do it just kinda fades away after about 15 min . I love that is is a matte color with gold and orange glitter but I don't love the lasting ability. I first though they color was fading because my skin was oxidizing it but I've tried it with at least 5 different primers and bases and nothing makes it stick. As it fades it gives a slightly bruised look. The glitter also doesn't show up too well on the eye, if you put it on your hand the glitter seems to stick but it doesn't translate to the eye very well. Very very disappointing .
My aunt gave me two sample sizes of this product because they didn't work for her. And I really enjoy this primer, it isn't too sticky so it doesn't accentuate thin skin/wrinkles on the eyelid. The only problem I had was the packaging. I dunno if this is just because I had sample sizes, but I found it very hard to squeeze out product near the end. I ended up cutting the tubes open when I could no longer squeeze anything out, and I was able to scoop out a whole lot of product I would say half of the product was still in the tube. I put it into an old .24 oz jar I had and the sample is .17oz and the jar looks about 1/3 to half full. I guess this shows even with a squeeze tube you can't get everything out without destroying the packaging. I even had to throw out a glob of it from the crimp area of the tube because it had somehow dried out. Like instead of being sort of liquidy the product I pulled out from near the crimp is like sticky tack. Anyway this is still a good product I would not hesitate to buy this in a full size.

This product is pretty expensive only 0.08oz for about 25 bucks. (I have a sample lorac behind the scenes primer, and it has 0.17oz, and that is just the sample ) that It is a lot more expensive than other primers out there but I really like the consistency. I have dry skin but super oily eyelids and other primers don't work for me. I also like how it isn't sticky. Other primers I've used (smashbox photofinish, lorac behind the scenes ) were good but creased a little and didn't dry smooth. The smoothness of this primer makes it a lot easier to blend. It also doesn't give my thin eyelids a cakey or elephant look. If you have mature eyelids or are like me, young but have very crepey eyelids you should try it. I'm hoping to find something cheaper but for now this will have to do.
I love the selection of eyeshadow colors they very much suit my style. Probably best for super pale people like me because all the colors are so light. All the shadows are very nice and soft. And the new too faced packaging is great, takes up less space and is easier to take when traveling. If you love these kinds of colors buy it!
