          I wanted an under eye shadow prep and the wonderful young lady working at Benefit recommended this product. I love that it works not only as an eye shadow prep but also as a concealer prep. Easy to blend and it does work. My sensitive eyes have not been irritated at all!

                This primer is amazing! I'm so glad they changed the packaging and it has a doe foot applicator now. It's so much easier to apply. I love to use this as an eye primer and even an undereye concealer by dotting it on my eyelid and below my eye and then using a flattop buffing foundation brush to blend it all in. It gives the perfect amount of coverage and is super easy to blend shadows on top of. Definitely give this primer a try!

                  This is a great all in one primer, you can use it under eyes and on lids. Eyeshadow lasts longer and doesn't smudge or come off.

                    I superbly love this product.! I have been sitting and sitting on the thought of purchasing this because it is spendy but I took the chance and got it and I love it! It has been the best primer I've boughten. This one I don't even have to set I can just lay it down then start my look.
