          This product seems to work ok. But for me over time it starts to dry out my skin, especially under my eye.

            This product was recommended by one of the customer service ladies at the store but it did not work out so well for me. Although it does go on easy by mid-day I had creases in my eyeshadow a little oily. It was not what I was looking for.
