        As a concealer, it's great! But unless you're wearing little to no eyeshadow, it isn't the best primer. Not enough coverage.

              i wanted to love this after reading the reviews and getting the recommendation from an ulta employee but it made my eye lids really oily! My shadow & liner didn't last more than an hour or two with looking like a hot mess.

                I am having trouble with my eye makeup running. I was in Ulta the other day and happened to mention this to one of the ladies. She said this was one of the best primer she ever used. I gave it a try and I am extremely happy with the product. My makeup stayed on the whole day and I didn't look like I was in a meltdown.

                  I wear winged gel eyeliner everyday and I'm looking for a primer that will keep it from sliding off mid-day. Will this work as well with gel liner as it would with shadows?

                  I have very oily, aging eyelids. Does this need to be applied over or under make up to keep eyeliner from smudging?

                    A:

                    Apply to your bare eyelids, under your makeup, to extend the wear of your eyeliner and eyeshadow and to keep lids matte and crease-free.
