I have oily, hooded and watery sensitive eyes. Feel the drama?

I won a sample of this primer from a Brazilian store (BelezaNaWeb) when I bought one of their palettes.

As with the Smashbox 24h, it performed wonderfully.... except in my fold, where water from my eyes gets to. In this case, eyeshadow creased, became muddy and disappeared in 20-30 min tops.

To remove it from everywhere else, i had to use waterproof makeup remover.

Again, sad it didn't work for me because it is pretty good. Contrary to Smashbox 24h, this primer increased the color payoff of most of my eyeshadows, including the mattes ones. Some of them do not appear in my skin (MAC Cork is my exact skin color).

It is less stick than smashbox. If you don't have my watery eye problem I advise to give it a try.

This product did nothing to my eyeshadow, nor did it prolong its lasting power or make the colors pop more. The formula is greasy, and made me eyelids feel oiler than they really are. Awful. Will never purchase this again. Gave this a 2 rating only because of its creative packaging.

Normally I love the balm, but this just didn't do it for me. it's oily and dries a bit strange on me. it settles into fine lines and I find concealer works better than this. such a shame I was so excited for this.

I've got very oily eyelids and this primer did nothing for me. I'm so disappointed because I've heard so many good things about it. It might've made my eyeshadow a bit more pigmented but I could barely tell, and after not even 5 minutes I was a creasy mess.. The packaging is really cute tho! Maybe more suitable for someone with dryer eyelids, but I'm not going to repurchase this primer.

Ok, so dispite hearing many different views about this product I think that there are many other I primers on the market that are cheaper or the same price that are better than this. Firstly I put this on when I put my primer on my face and by the time I had got to my eyes which was only 10 minutes later the eye primer had crusted over and left massive marks on my eyes. Secondly, when i put it on it hurts my eyes and makes the tingle. It gets stuck on my last line and clumps together and I also think the formula is to greasy and watery. For me it didn't keep my eyeshadow on any longer than it would without primer so this is a defiant no for me.

Awful. I put this on my eyelid and it caused a horrible reaction that made my eyes swollen, watery, and tomato red. I was so mad I drove the 45 minutes to the Rexall I got it from to return it. It doesn't seem like anyone else has had this issue but I was not willing to risk continued use after the pain it caused.

This is my first eyeshadow primer, it works pretty well. I put a little bit on my finger tips and pat it on my eyelids.
The creamy formula makes it very easy to adhere on my sweaty lids, and it does not feel oily at all! My eyeshadows sticks well with this primer, even the powdery matte colours could shows up nicely.
I have been using this for about two to three weeks, and it last pretty well in the day. Would repurchase again.

I love this product! It's smooth, velvety and goes on realy well. Plus you only need a teeny tiny bit to cover your entire eyelid. Therefore, I'll last me for ages. My lids are usually oily, but with this on, they don't get oily at all. I've even tried it out with the worst eyeshadow I have, which normally creases after like an hour or so and it worked! It stayed put!
I recommend. It's my favourite!

This primer from TheBalm is amazing! For reference, I have oily eyelids: maybelline CT's and MAC PP's crease on me within 3 hours, and L'Oreal infallible e/s also crease within 4-5 hours. My eyelids really need some help to keep my eyeshadows going... Thank God for primers like this one! It has a creamy consistency and comes out of a small spout squeeze tube, which is sanitary by my standards! Once applied, it has a velvety texture and has no color, no scent. When I use this primer, most eyeshadows, whether cream or powder, last on my lids for 14-16 hours without creasing, which is amazing. The only negative feedback I have to give is that the tip of the tube cracked after one month, and now the primer gets dispensed from a crack on the side of the tube! I have used this religiously every day for over 6 months, and I believe I still have at least 50% left. If the packaging were a bit more sturdy, I would repurchase this in no time, or at least be very careful when placing the cap back on the tube...

I love this primer. I bought the Milani one & hated it. Plus it irritated my eyes. Thebalm one keeps my eyeshadow on longer & more vibrant. The consistency is nice. It has no color so it doesn't interfere with the color of your eyeshadow.
