Most Helpful Positive Review Lovely effect
I have both the Bright AF and the Undressed shades. The Bright AF really brightens the eye area and brings it forward. The Undressed, one of the neutralizing shades, gives me more-or-less my own eyelid, just better, with smoother color. I have very fair skin, so Undressed may be more obvious on others, but for me it is the perfect "No makeup" look.
Most Helpful Critical Review Disappointed ??
I loved the 5-1 eye shadows. This eye shadow/primer leaves creases and wears off very quickly. I had my daughter try it just to see if it was just me but she had the same issues. Will not be purchasing this product ??

Easy to apply, stays on well, does not dry out or crease
Bring back the 5 in 1

Bought as a replacement to the 5:1, do NOT love it the same. The texture is different, colors are slightly different and I just do not love it the same. Its a basic product, just average.
Just OK, Bring Back 5 in 1
Gigi68 from Temecula, CA
I've bought several different colors in this and it's just ok. It is quite dry on my mature eyelids and sinks into wrinkles. Definitely not an improvement over the 5 in 1. I was devastated when I could not find the 5 in 1 anywhere and found out it was discontinued. Still looking for something like it. This is not it! PLEASE BRING BACK THE 5 in 1!!

I've bought several of the shade Undressed. It is the perfect shade for my fair complexion. Works great alone or as a shadow primer. Keeps shadows on all day. Great product!
Paige from RHODEISLAND
Very easy to use! I highly recommend it for those low maintenance with their make up.
Really Nice Primer
Kathy from Homosassa, FL
I use this as a primer so that my eye make will stay in place. Not only does it work, but being ophthamologist approved, I don't worry about it irritating my sensitive eyes.
I would buy this again!
Kris from Grafton, WI
It is versatile and seems long lasting. It made my lids a little dry, but that won't keep me from purchasing it again.
I use everyday
Betsy from WI
I use this everyday. Either on its own for low key days or under eyeshadow. Works great.
Denise Z from PA
I'll use gen nude shadow primer even when I wear no other makeup. It really wakes up the eyes and goes on smooth. Dries quickly. Covers any red or blue discoloration.
Great for natural looks
Bee from US
I got the "Undressed" shade and really like it. It goes on smoothly and blends well. It brightens my look but in an natural way. I like the way it looks on its own, but it doesn't quite last the day without help.
mediocure successor to the 5 & 1
TypeA from Washington DC
I was a dedicated 5 & 1 Barely Nude user so, when they stopped making it, I decided to try this. I have tried the Exposed and Low Key and one's too bright, the other too dark. Also, this product is more watery and doesn't have the staying power of the 5 & 1.
Bring back 5 in 1
Eveigal from Kansas City
The gen nude formula just isn't cutting it - The colors are limited. 5 in 1 was thick and creamy while the gen nude is thinner and greasy - I love cream eyeshadows but can't talk myself into buying another gen nude primer
Diana29 from Mankato, MN
I bought the shade Woke to use as a shadow and add more depth to my eyes, and it is amazing. It blends beautifully and has major staying power, even in the heat and humidity. It seems like the negative reviews are from people who are comparing it to another product that I have never used, so I can't speak to that, but I came here to look at other colors and buy a second one in Woke so I have a backup!
It's also gentle on the eyelids, but I would be careful about letting it dry if you have slightly hooded eyelids like I do so it stays where you want it.
I would not buy again.
TG from Edmond OK
This product does not work on me. It goes on real dry and creases! Maybe work on people with oily skin?? Going to return.
quilter from Lake View, NY
I use the lightest shade as an eyelid primer to cover my discoloration. This has been my favorite product for quite some time. I hope it is never discontinued.
Another Great Bare Minerals Product
KAS from NM
It is a smooth as silk going on and holds the color of my eyeshadow better than anything I have used before.
Lasts all day!
Bell from AZ
Stays on all day! I love how easy it is to use too. Love love love!
Pretty Worth It
Theo D from Orlando, FL
I tried this primer on a whim as I have very oily eyelids and have trouble with creasing and colors running. This primer spreads easily and m'attiriez very well, yet still manages to brighten the shadow that goes on top and, in my experience, holds even my thickest cream shadows without heavily or noticeably creasing. I would say to give it a shot!
Ordered two just in case it doesn't make it!
bitsyc from Lehigh Valley, PA
I'm surprised at the negative reviews, although mostly it looks like people want another product back. I can't speak to the 5 in 1, but I can tell you that this is by far the best concealer I've ever used on my eyes. As I age (I'm 45), I find that I am getting darker circles below my eyes and on my lids. This erases them completely and looks totally natural, but yet with a little sparkle. I know that sounds like it doesn't make sense, but it does both and I love it!! Please don't stop making this product.
Too many creases
SML from CA
Goes on smooth and has a nice shimmer, lots of eyelid creases throughout the day. Will go back to Urban Decay
Danielle from Spokane, WA
The color is very neutral and works really well as a base color.
I love this stuff
TaraL from New Jersey
What did I do before I found this stuff? Put powder shadow directly on my eyelid? I can't even imagine. This goes on smoothly and stays on all day. You can use it alone for subtle coverage and shimmer, or use it under shadow to make sure it goes on evenly and stays bright and stays put all day. It isn't as thick as the old 5-in-1 formula, and I'm not completely convinced this is better than the original; however, I've tried many, many other primers and liquid eyeshadows and this is by far the best. One tip: you have to apply and blend immediately. If it begins to dry before you blend it on your eyelid, it won't budge. But then again, once it dries, it won't budge...which is what you want in an eyeshadow primer.
Evens eyelid tone
Bobbie from Muskegon
As I get older, I notice my eyelid tone changing to pinkish/blue. This evens the tone & makes my lids smoother for eye shadow application. Multiple purchases, would recommend --especially for more mature women.
I don't think I will buy this again
Q from Oregon
I expected this product to blend smoothly over my eyelids. It doesn't at all.
Jacash from North Carolina
Love this. Puts on a nice bright creamy coat that would work alone or use as primer! Beautiful!
