Thought I'd give this product a try as my usual MAC eye primer wasn't giving good results in this recent heatwave we're experiencing here in the UK. I was really happy with the results considering the difference in price between the two makes, and I'd considered this to be a budget brand.

I tried it out on an unusually warm day where I live, temperatures reached 30 …

I don’t mind this product, and it does work well however I would not repurchase it. The black packaging is extremely durable and travel friendly. I typically don’t care for primers that come with a wand as opposed to a squeeze tube because of the wasteful plastic packaging. That being said the texture is light and the colour is translucent. It does not leave the eyelids feeling tacky, and it is …Read more

I love this primer. I love the applicator; I apply a dab on each lid and blend it up to my brow and it "disappears." It's almost like I can't even tell I have it on...then I set it with just a bit of flesh toned powder eyeshadow.
My eyeshadow shows up very well, it doesn't crease and lasts all day. I have sensitive eyes and this doesn't irritate them at …

Saw it on a list of best eye shadow primers for oily lids, and I have to say i was not dissapointed! I am already on my 3rd tube and when I run out, i know i will get another.

My lids are oily -but not terribly so- I normally dab it on and wait for it to at least get tacky before going to town with shadows, otherwise it tends to crease. I don't normally set it, since i find my …

I had high hopes for this eye primer but it failed! My beef with this inexpensive guy is that by the end of the day, my eyeshadow is sitting in the crease. Not as bad as some, but I'd rather pay for my favorite, Urban Decay's eye primer, than lament my smudged eyeshadow every day.

I bought this product a few weeks ago - just before I went on holiday to Italy (where it was pretty hot, so I could test it properly to see if it would smudge in this sweaty weather). It was €7,20 in a NYX store in Belgium - which is a fair price for this product I'd say. I've tried a few (budget) primers before (Essence, Catrice, HEMA and Artdeco) and none of those can do what this NYX …Read more

I've never used an eye primer before because I found the whole concept kind of gimmicky, and I didn't think it could be any different than using concealer on my lids. I have seen the light of day after using this eye primer. This stuff is amazing and affordable! My eyeshadows glide over my lids and they blend so beautifully and easily. The colors don't crease or move around, and …Read more

I have oily eye lids, which means some eye shadows and liners can fade away, but this is reasonably good at holding them in place.

Trick is to apply liner/shadow once this primer is completely dry but can still feel a little tacky even when applying liner/shadow.

This is my go-to for making cheap eyeshadows stay in place longer. I like to apply a thin layer of this over the lid, then go over it with a powder shadow (Wet n Wild's single in Creme Brulee(?) is my go-to), and then do the rest of my shadow on top of it. It's not completely budge-proof, but it's close, and it definitely makes a huge difference in terms of keeping eyeshadow from …Read more

Its a decent primer....goes on nicely, but takes a long time to "dry". Once dry it lasts on my lids without it becoming too oily (I do not have very oily lids). Overall, even for the price, I wont buy it again....I prefer UD PP.
