        Amazing!! Been using this product for 2-3years now, works great. My eyelids are naturally dark, and this hides a majority of that, and keeps my eyeshadow on all day! I also use it under my eyes THEN apply Fakeup and THAT lasts all day too! This hides a majority of my genetic dark circles!

                  I got a sample of this with a prior purchase and once I tried it, I knew I had to have it. The applicator makes it easy to apply, the texture is terrific and it truly helps eye makeup stay in place, plus it provides a nice neutral base for whatever shadow you apply. I have even worn it without any shadow on top for a totally natural and unmade up eye look, but with just a hint of light color.

                      This makes my eyeshadow stay on all day without smudging or creasing. I think it makes my color pop as well. I have been using this for 2+ years and it's by far the best on the market.

                          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?
