Most Helpful Positive Review Holds like Concrete, Washes easily
I hadn't worked with glitter much and was nervous because it has the tendency to stick to everything and have too much fall out. This glitter primer does the job. Period. Smooth, satiny application and picks up every piece of glitter. I had an unfortunate incident where I fell asleep with a glittery eye look and when I woke up, my other eyeshadows had worn off, but the glitter was still in place exactly where I had applied it. This primer also works great as a base to enhance the color of the Nyx Pigments. Haven't tried it with lips yet, but for glittery eye looks, I am sold.
Most Helpful Critical Review Keeps the glitter on, but creases
I was looking for a reasonably priced glitter primer and was excited to see this from NYX, especially since the packaging is cute! I will say, it definitely made my glitter eyeshadow show up better, and it also reduces fallout significantly. It also makes my eyeshadow last longer, unfortunately it could not survive my crease. I have normal/dry skin and hooded eyes, and my eyeshadow wore away badly in the crease and set into folds. The regular primer I use (which is high end) does not do that. Granted this keeps the glitter on well, so I'll probably continue to use it, but I will do so only on the flat planes of my eye where I want the glitter to stick, so I'll have to use two primers on heavy glitter days (which isn't ideal). I was hoping to find my new everyday eyeshadow primer (because i do where a lot of glitter) but I've just incorporated another product into my stock.

This product really met my expectations! I loved it!!
Holds very well
Michelle from Baldwin Park
A little goes a long way and it holds basically any glitter. It kept my glitter on through a whole BTS concert so you know it's good!!

So I had bought this bc I heard everyone raving about it. I don't use glitter often but when I do I had used this. And I tried it about 4-5 times and omg. This just ruined my eye makeup. I creases horribly after 30 minutes. I even tried putting less of the primer but still didn't do me any justice. Honestly, using eyelash glue was way much better.

It definitely holds any type of glitter.

I use this primer everytime I wear a shimmery eyeshadow. It makes the colors pop!
THE standard for glitter glue
Earthymoon from Huntsville, AL
I have tried SOOOO many glitter glues ranging from super cheap to super expensive. This is my favorite. First off I have very sensitive eyes and several adhesive allergies. This is the only glitter glue that I can tolerate on a regular basis.
It's easy to work with. I apply with a flat synthetic brush and let it dry for about 30 seconds before applying glitter or shimmer. If I get delayed in applying the shimmer/glitter, the primer stays tacky but doesn't glue my hooded eyes together. The product is water soluble and is easy to remove at the end of the day. It's also easy to remove from my brushes.
This is THE best primer our there
Stella from OKC
I've used both this one & the one without glitter. I love this one! It has kept my shadow & glitter in place for the past 2 1/2 hours. And I cried; zero running or smudging.
An absolute must buy!

It's a sticky base to help glitters and shimmers to stay put and call to the skies!!!!
Tutu from USA
does what it is supposed to
June from ON
it's easy to apply (I reccomend using a small shadow brush or even a liner/smudger brush), it's creamy and will keep glitter on lockdown. it's not super glue or anything you may find your self with a couple of rebellious sparkle bits out of place but let's be practical here. if you do a lot of (especially loose) glitter looks pick this one up, you'll be glad you did.
Riah from Minnesota
This is great and I love that you can feel when it's dried down for you to be able to apply what you are priming for. I think the only thing for me was that I must have applied too much whenever I first used it because it looked chunky on my under eye.
Must have for shimmer shadows
lcm371 from IL
I apply this to my lid before applying shimmer shadows and it just makes the shadows pop and wear longer. It's a must have for any eyeshadow lover.
Great Product Faulty Packaging
chrissy from Los Angeles
love this product the the narrow applicator literally breaks off from normal regular use. i would keep purchasing, but this has happened a couple times now even on a new tube. so its not likely.
AMC from NYC
This primer makes glitters stay all day and with hardly any fallout. Really does the job and for a great price. Also easy to apply.
Holds all day
Jl08 from NH
This glitter primer holds all day. I used it for some pressed glitter shadows, and it worked really well. I also have used it with shimmers, and it lasts.
sky from US
It holds glitter (and even eyeliner) in place for hours, a little goes a long way, love the holo tube.
Goes on sticky and dries down matte
Sara from Long Beach, CA
Amazing. You need so little to make shimmer shadows stay and pop! So so good. Lasts forever. Bought another because the nozzle on mine broke off.
Jazz from South Carolina

Something new for me
Precious61 from Jackson,NJ
Saw this on a beauty tutorial in was watching and thought I would try it. I haven't actually gone anywhere to use it, but I did try it when I got home and it worked great. Cant wait to go somewhere and add a bit of glitter to my eyes!!
By Veiki from New York
I like it
this stuff is the best
billie from indiana
i've used this multiple times now and it is one of my absolute favorite products EVER. not only is it amazing for glitter and sparkly/shimmery shadow on the eyes, it kept trixie cosmetics sprinkles GLUED to my highlighter on my cheeks when i was outside all day in the middle of summer. i have really round cheeks and through smiling, talking, and eating, the sprinkles stayed on. i thought that because they stayed on so well they would be a nightmare to take off, but that wasn't the case at all.

With this glitter primer, my glitter stayed on my eyelids all day.
Does the promised work!!
sara from mi
its a great and affordable option that leaves no crease.
best shadow primer
Taylor from Kentucky
I actually don't even wear glitter on my eyelids but I wanted to try a different eyeshadow primer after being dissatisfied with expensive ones creasing and just not working well or looking nice. This one is my new holy grail. Works so much better than mid-high range shadow primers! I worked a 5-hour shift outdoors in 94F heat and when I went inside my eyeshadow still looked as good as when I first applied it. I have deep-set eyes that are roughly half-hooded and my eyelids are both dry and oily, so if this sounds like you try this one!
Paige from Oswego, NY
THIS IS IT Y'ALL!!! You don't need to look any further for a better glitter primer lol and just so you know it doesn't actually have glitter in it, it's just has a nice sheen to it but it's perfect to use before really glittery, chunky eyeshadow for example i bought it to use with the eyeshadows in the morphe 24A artist pass and the 10g glsen up and it makes the glitter shadows really pigmented and stick!!!
