Yes! Finally a fantastic primer for OILY eyelids!! Eyeshadows stay put! Even the urban decay eyeliner doesn't seem to budge for several hours. Liquid eyeliner never moves on an oily gal. But, gels...

Probably the worst primer I’ve ever tried for oily lids. I put makeup on before going to the movies and my eyeshadow had creased by the time I got back home. Horrible horrible!

I think this is a very good shadow primer, particularly in terms of its coverage. I found this primer helpful in covering up the very visible veins on my lids. It also held the shadows in place all...

Agree with most of the other reviews that this sadly is a fail. I decided to try this because this was one of the few eye primers I hadn't tried, and I need a primer if I want any kind of eye...

Too thick, makes the eyes look old and wrinkly, does not intensify eye shadow (even in an arm swatch), does not control oil, does not stop my eye shadow creasing. Basically it doesn't even work as...

This product is way too thick and hard to apply and emphasized the wrinkles on my eyes. It has high coverage but a concealer would be a better choice if that's what you're looking for.

This eyelid primer leaves me on the fence... it's a lil thicker than my Mac paints but prob just as dry feeling. Just to be clear the product texture is dry, on application it does NOT dry out your...

This primer is surprisingly BAD. I got it as a Points Perk at Sephora (I really regret wasting 100 points). I rely on eyeshadow primers or good cream eyeshadows to hold my powder shadows all day...

This does prevent creasing and helps my shadow stay on longer, but it's difficult to work with. It's thicker and dryer than any other primer I've tried, so application is a little harder. I can...
