        my best friend really loves this product, my only problem is how thick it is, it's kind of hard to smooth out. its perfect use would be cutting the crease with it for putting a light glitter shade over. i prefer using the boing concealer for a primer

          I've been looking for a good eyeshadow primer for a long time. An Ulta sales associate recommended this one and I am IN LOVE. My eyeshadow looks just as fresh in the evening as when I first put it on in the morning when I use this stuff. New staple for my daily makeup routine for sure!

                I'm sure this product works well for most though, sadly, my eye makeup was severely creased and smudged all over the place. I have oily eyelids and this product just didn't offer enough staying power.

                    I'm still giving this a trial run. I read a review that says a little goes a long way, but the first few days I used this I applied a small amount and it still creased. I've only had one day that was better, I applied a lot more and most of my eyeshadow stayed out but there was still some creasing. I'm going to continue experimenting with how much is needed to actually keep all my eyeshadow in place.
