            I actually only use this product as an under eye primer, concealer, and for contouring. It did not work well for me as an eyelid primer because it clumped in the creases BUT as an under eye primer and concealer, it's a must!

                I've tried SO many eye primers. I have oily skin and oily lids so I have to use a primer. This is the best one I've found by far! I love the consistency and how easy it is to blend out. Every shadow I use, from powder to creme, blends and sits over it perfectly! Highly recommend!

                      Works great! I've tried other primers and this is my favorite by far. I tried another expensive Estée Lauder finger application primer and it got hard and clumpy from the natural oils on my finger. Benefits primer is so easy to apply, it's clean because it has an applicator, and it makes your color pop.
