Price is about $6.00I've gone through several tubes of this because I always go back to it. I think it's better or just as good as UD Primer Potion, Too Faced Shadow Insurance, Benefit Don't Stray, Smashbox Photo Finish, MAC Paint Pots( horrible on me used as primer). Every other drugstore brand has been a disappointment but I do also like Ulta's Matte Eye Primer. It's around $10.00 but I catch it on sale when ULTA has a sale but Milani is my first choice. I don't have oily lids, they are on the dry side. This applies easily and never irritates or dries my lids out. I always apply a light dusting of translucent powder or a white or very light shadow over it before applying my shadows. I use primer every day and a tube lasts me about 4 months. It doesn't crease and my shadows last all day and well into the night. It won't hide veins or darkness if you have those on your lids, but most others don't either and ones that do dry my lids out and crease or cause my shadow to look crepey.Here is the con... as SOME, NOT ALL, tubes gets about 75% empty it can separate. Not usually, but some tubes do. So when you squeeze it oil will come out then the product. Once it begins to get low, if I squeeze the tube it mixes it back together but I do find this an annoying problem but it doesn't happen with every tube. If you shake the tube well once in a while it does help also alternating by storing it upside down then right side up. I don't find this a reason to stop buying it because it's cheap and it works really well for my lids.Description from the website:Intensify the color of your favorite eyeshadow and increase its wear from day into night by adding the lightweight, crease-proof Eyeshadow Primer to your beauty arsenal.

This product unfortunately did nothing for me, when it's not making things even worse. I have very oily, hooded monolids, which are like the unholy trinity of eye makeup. If not primed and set (with a very strong oil-absorbent powder - I use the CoverGirl Professional Loose Powder, which is so drying that I can't even use it on the oily parts of my face. Which is to demonstrate just how oily my eyelids are); nothing stays on my eyes. Applied to my bare lids, it's a thick but very evenly spreadable, very smoothing silicone-y primer. But that's about it. It does nothing, even when I set it with my CoverGirl powder on top. I've even tried to powder my lids first, then apply the primer, then powder my lids again; still does nothing. I don't experience any of the "drying down" sensation that some other reviewers have described. My eyeshadows fade and crease on me within less than 2 hours after application. Some of the more finicky shadows even fade within 15 minutes. I'm not trying to be mean but there's nothing good I can say about this product. The packaging is just okay, considering the thick texture and the tiny amount of primer that I need, it takes me a bit of effort to squeeze out just enough but not too much product on my finger; the maneuvering is a bit tricky.I don't think I got a damaged or separated product, the way it performs on the eyes seem to match what other people describe it to be. My tube was not separated, it still has a very thoroughly mousse-y texture. This product really just isn't for me. I tried using it on my mother who has very crepe-y eyelids that are not so oily, it's very smoothing and the shadows do go on a bit smoother on her, but it doesn't intensify the colours or extend the wear by much. If you have eyelids fitting mine own description, I recommend the Wet n WIld photofocus eyeshadow primer. It IS very drying and I don't recommend it if you have any other skin type. Even with the WnW primer, for some creamy shimmer/metallic eyeshadows, I still have to use literal glitter glue for them to stick. If you're hopelessly trying to find ways to make your eyeshadows stay worth the effort you spent putting them on, I hope these help.

I love this product! I have oily skin and deep set eyes , and this combination has always resulted in my eye makeup creasing and basically melting off my face by the end of the day. This product keeps my eyeshadow and liner in place perfectly all day! I don’t wear dramatic eye makeup but it works great with my natural looks. I’ve never tried any other eye shadow primers so I can’t say how this compares to other products. I’ll definitely purchase this again!

I'm on the fence with this one. It's a really cute squeeze tube so I like the packaging, and it does help stop creasing but I find my eye shadow looks patchy after 8+ hours of wear. I do find it fairly comparable to UDPP for a much lower price. So far the best primer I've found is the Too Faced one, but it's so pricey. I'm going to try the Wet n Wild one next to see if it does any better.

I bought this product in superstore here in canada, I really don't find this product to be such a good product for me it did nothing for my eye shadows when applied, it does not enhance the shadows I am still on the first tube will not repurchase. The best eye shadow primer that makes your eyeshadows pop and makes them appears on the lid as in the pan is Mineral Fusion primer.

I wanted to like this primer as it's affordable however after going through a whole tube and using it with eyeshadows from UD, Laura Mercier ect I realized this stuff is just crap. Didn't make my shadow last any longer, it would look patchy after a few hours. Basically, it doesn't do what it's supposed too.

Had to go to 4 stores before I finally found this but I realized it wasn't worth it. It separates in the tube even when shaken. I get oily residue and creamy primer on my finger that does not blend back together. In addition the primer seems to turn all of my eyeshadows shades of blue and green even though they start as beiges and taupes and these are eyeshadows that are reliable (Stila, UD, Dior). It does keep my eyeshadows from creasing but I don't care if it's the wrong colors. I am going to have to begin again on finding an eye primer.

This works great on my oily eyelids.. I'm 47 yo, and don't wear winged liner or a super big amount of eyeshadow like glitters etc. I'm more of a neutral base shade, a lid shade, and a little bit darker shade in the crease girl, so I can't say how this works for a full on dramatic eye look with false lashes etc, but I'm sure it works just as good! I was using UD, or Essence eye primer, but even for my subtle eye looks, I wasn't fully satisfied with either one.. The Milani is about $6 at Walmart, and in my opinion works just as well as any high end shadow primer. Definitely recommend.

I use this under my eyes and on the bridge of my nose (so my sunglasses don’t ruin my makeup). It really keeps the creasing at bay, my concealer doesn’t fade. It also keeps my nose looking good even with sunglasses. It is kinda drying though, and it dries really fast- so blend it out fast. Otherwise, I’d say this is better than udpp.

I bought Milani eyeshadow primer from my local Walmart last night around 9pm and I'm already loving it!! My eyelids are oily and water like it's no one's business. While following along with one of my favorite BIs on utube- once I smoothed out the primer it was simple. I finally blended the shadows with no problem, it looked and felt as if I really knew how to hook up an eyeshadow look.
