This products WORKS! I notice a real difference in my eye shadow when wearing this, it stays on the lid longer and there's minimal creasing. I also like that it really brightens up the eyelid...

This is a great primer that works just as well as my higher end ones. I like the beige colour as it covers any redness on my lids. This dries to a nice smooth finish. My shadows apply with ease and...

I wish this worked better because I love the applicator and the price. But at the end of the day, this does not do anything you would expect an eye primer to do. My shadow was still faded and...
