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 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.

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

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.

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!!

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!

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!!!
Dre from Pennsylvania
Works ok - helps my eyeshadow stay for most of the day. I don't think it helped with glitter fallout as much as I was hoping for. Will probably just go back to my usual (Urban Decay) once this tube is used up.
Best on the market
Jojo from Los Angeles
Works great for glitter shadows, like no other and I've tried a bunch. I always use this under any sparkly lid shades or glitters to get all day wear. Makes them adhere to the eye so smoothly too and I don't get fall out. I hope they never discontinue this staple because it performs better than high end and is a great price.
Best on the market.
Mary from York, PA
This is the best glitter primer on the market if you consider performance and price. This has performed better than my high end glitter primers. I have no interest in trying any other glitter primer product ever.
Not buying again
Mrs Eyeshadow from OXNARD CA
For the price, this product is great!
Ruth O. from New Jersey, USA
Only reason I took away a star was that my glitter (NYX as well) transferred to my crease.
Katie from Minnesota
Good-sized tube for the price. The formula has a good level of stickiness to it, which is important for keeping glitter on all day. I find that it works well with glittery eyeshadows, too, not just loose glitters. It is noticeably more crease-prone than its expensive counterparts (UD primer potion, for example) but for the price this is a great deal. I also love the iridescent packaging. Four stars because of the creasing issue.

I was nervous about trying something new but this is amazing.
It does a good job.

I thought it did a great job keeping on my glitter eye shadow.
Liz from Ohio
AMAZING. It works so well and is easy to use.
Great affordable primer.
D from Alabama
This primer is awesome. It makes my metallic shades pop when used, and sets down a nice base for the rest of my shadow. Great price point and good amount of product.
Mary from York, PA
This is a staple product that every makeup lover needs. I use this to cut my crease and apply a shimmery shade across my lid. The price is excellent. The product will last a long time too.
Pocahontas from Baltimore
I love this primer, I often work 16 hour days and it holds its own when I get home after midnight. I will forever use this product.
Jess from Somewhere
I use this with the nyx glitter pigments and also with just regular shimmer colors in eyeshadow palettes that I have. This makes the glitter/ eyeshadow pop and stay all day. I was really surprised I've tried so many and for the price it's absolutely amazing!
