            I have oily eyelids, and have found very few eyeshadow primers that truly work all day for me. I have been disappointed by a wide array of primers, from Milani to Urban Decay and Too Faced. This primer managed to keep shadow in place all day, with almost no creasing. This joins the NARS pro prime as my favorite work horse primer.

              First time using a primer so I decided to go with this! It turned out to be a success! I used eye shadow base as a primer and my eye shadow would ALWAYS crease. But this primer does wonders! My eye shadow LITERALLY LOOKED THE SAME as I put on in the morning as it did at night. My skin is a bit dry and it worked so well with it. I love it already after one use!

                  I have tried other primers but none seemed to last all day. By the end of my work day, my eye color was creased and my mascara left smudges on my upper lids. This is the only primer I have found that keeps my eye makeup in the areas I place it!

                          No matter what eyeliners I use ( waterproof/ smudge proof) it would smudge under my eye during the day. Would this help prevent that? Trying to advoid raccoon eyes. Thanks. Please advise.

                            This product is actually one that I personally use every day and swear by! When I first started using it, I did experience this same issue. I found that by using less product, it dried more quickly - and was just as effective at keeping my eye makeup in place all day. I'd suggest applying a very small amount at a time. I use less than a pea-size amount for both eyelids. Applying and blending it using a small, flat concealer brush also helps to ensure it goes on smoothly and evenly and helps it to dry more quickly. Once dry, proceed with eye makeup application. I hope these tips help! :-)

                            This product applies invisibly (no tint) and is worn under shadow to lock it into place up to 24 hours. We hope these details help!
