    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.

              My cousin spoke so HIGHLY of this product so i went to ulta and bought it,i couldn't wait to use it ,price didn't matter to me as long as it worked as well as my cousin said ... i used it yesterday like the box said three dots underneath the eye and above it , 3 hours later ....creased horribly ,i was so upset especially since i use to use the Mary Kay eye primer and the bottle was small and it was 12 dollars it worked so well and was long lasting but eventually it did crease after 14hrs ,but still that was enough for me.ugh this product was S&!# especially since i paid almost 30 bucks for it , i expected it to work >:/

                I use it for shadow base, brightens my overall look, as you age it seems I have begin to seen a lot of dark around my eyes, this takes that away.

                  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.
