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 just sliding right into my crease.Packaging - 2/5 because the white printing on my tube has come off (I think maybe I got something oily on it? Still shouldn't have happened). And I'm not a fan of the doefoot applicator, but I do like the form factor of the neat black cylindrical tube, so there's that at least.

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.

I've been on the hunt recently for a good eye primer lately for my hooded eyes and this is sadly not the one. I like this for the coverage but any product in my crease is seriously faded by the 6 hour mark. I really like the UD PP but the original doesn't cancel out much of my veiny eyelids. This one does at least that but doesn't help the eyeshadow last any longer for me.

The primer really doesn't suit oily eyelids. It creased all day even with a little powder on top of the eyeshadow.

This didn't work on my oily lids. I think I got around three hours of uninterrupted shadow time.By noon, which is approximately after 6 hours of wear, my eye shadow had pretty much melted away.If your skin isn't too oily (mine is very oily) this might be the product for you, but for people with oily lids, pass on this.

I have been using Urban Decay's Shadow Primer for years and I love it, but had read about NYX's version. It's much cheaper than UD which admittedly was my primary motivator for buying it. For me it works just as well as UD. My big criticism of NYX (hence the loss of one lippie) is the wand applicator. I prefer the tube / squeeze out the amount you need option of UD. UD also goes on with a slight pearly sheen to it while NYX is white. I do have oily eyelids and often I will just swipe on some UD on my lids with no eyeshadow and it just evened out the tone. With NYX it would be too white to do that.Bottom line: I'd buy it again.

I have oily eyelids. I applied this primer and it never dried. Still I put on the eyeshadows and they creased with a blink. I do not know if it was a bad tube or it was not right for my skin. I just threw it away anyway because it has parabens and I discovered I am allergic to them.

Great primer that works good and is reasonably priced. The formula is liquid-y and blends in quickly, and no fragrance either (something that is hit or miss with the brand). I get better performance out of a different primer, but still keep this around for when I do a natural look with just an all over light shade when a little creasing is ok.

I haven't tried many eyeshadow primers, but I like this one. It's not spectacular, but I think it does increase the longevity of my eyeshadow and I'll definitely consider buying it again when I run out.

I was never an eyeshadow person. My obsession was always with winged liner. However, I got into It recently and after playing around a bit and perfecting my technique (with the aid of old/secondhand eye shadows from others) I decided to buy my first palette - a neutral one for every day (Too Faced's natural matte, if you were curious).Anyways, to cut the crap, I didn't feel like shelling out the 25 dollars for the urban decay primer potion. I'd read the reviews on here and decided to buy this base. I mean, I just shelled out a lot of money for this supposedly great quality, higher-end palette so it'd better be way more than decent even without a primer!Turns out this stuff kicks ass. Obviously, I haven't tried any other primers so I can't compare this to anything. I wasn't worried about how much it would add to the pigmentation of the shadows as they are already great to begin with. What I was more concerned about was longevity, and boy did I get it: they didn't budge, crease or fade. I typically have my makeup on for twelve hours or more every day (I'm always too lazy to take it off until bed) and my eyeshadow always looks like I've just applied it, without exaggeration. I've even gotten comments about how well my shadow lasts at the end of the day. I don't know how good this is with cheaper shadows that will require that extra 'lift' unfortunately. I don't know how good UDPP or TFSI are and neither do I care - this thing exceeded my expectations and it's only a third of the price of these two! I would definitely recommend and will always repurchase!
