I have oily lids and have tried numerous eye primers in the past, I went into the MAC store the day they received this and have been using it about 2 weeks now . Honestly i really needed to write a review to tell anyone that suffers oily lid problems to go get this !! without a primer eyeshadow lasts about 2 hours before its creased and barely noticeable .. even with liquid liners and mascaras i always had transfer to my lids , even waterproof ! how annoying ! this product blew my mind, it kept my eye area looking fresh every day all day, basically until i remove it . Ive even tested it when i have been sweating and in a hot tub and it stayed put! so Impressed , thank you MAC !
I used to get Urban Decay Primer for my eyelids and decided to try M.A.C. I use many of their other products so I was sure this would be just as awesome and it was not. I put it on with a brush and clean fingers and by lunch it's already creased and the makeup I had on my bottom lid will be gone and all in the crease :(

BEST. PRIMER. EVER.
Pascale B from Grand Terrace CA
I originally began to use this product for my oily eye brows as a base before applying my brows product and I also use it for my eye shadow base ONLY ON THE EYE LIDS because I'm oily there as well. Works great holds eye products in place. I don't recommend using this in your transition color area it will look chalky and streaky. Use another base for the rest of the eye.

I love this primer: my makeup looks pigmented, my blending looks great and it stays that way all day long. I also love how it doesn't leave my eyelids feeling dried out. The only complaint I have about it is the tube: I wish the "opening" was a little smaller. There's been times where I accidentally squeezed out too much, and with this primer, a little goes a long way. But other than that, definitely recommend this primer!

Have used this for years. I work 12-18 hour shifts and my eye shadow looks like I just applied it. Must have in anyone's makeup routine.

This is a great product. I had been looking for a primer I could apply over my ELF CBD eye cream that would not look heavy or crepey with the addition of the second layer. This one is it because it is thin, dries quickly, and does not add color. I apply a thin layer of the eye cream, wait a minute or two, then apply a thin layer of this primer. I set the entire eye area with Mac Blanc Type or Lys translucent setting powder and my eyeshadow does not budge or crease for the rest of the day.

While buying something else in this MAC store, I told the wonderful sales lady who was helping me that their eyeliner I use, tends to smudge a lot by the end of the day. She recommended using this product before putting on any liner — it's a miracle! She was absolutely right! My eyeliner does not move all day!
Lolah from Ohio
This primer is great! I love how it doesn't crease and it last all day even the hot ones! It especially works well with a natural eye as it is very smooth and transparent. One thing is dont get it on your lashes because it will be hard to get off.

My makeup looked great for over 12 hours of wear and I have very oily skin. Would highly recommend this eyeshadow base!
Amazing, basics necessity!! from Florida
This is hands down the best eyeshadow primer I have ever used. It's light weight, doesn't change the color of your shadows, its smooth and creamy to apply. Best of all it helps my shadows last all day and night long, no creasing or build-ups and seems to actually help make it easier to blend my colors together flawlessly!!! A must have in your make-up arsenal!!!
Susu from Maine
I have oily eyelids and often my black waterproof liner will transfer to make a line below my eyebrow as the day goes on. Not anymore! You only need a very small amount of this for each application. I can see it lasting an entire year. Very happy with this purchase.
Best eye primer ever from Michigan
I have tried several primers over the years from very high end to drugstore recommended brands. This one is it. I actually fell asleep with my make up on (something I very rarely do) and woke up with my eyeshadow still looking amazing and not creased. AMAZING!
Kasey with Green Hair from Gresham, OR
This product was recommended to me by Kasey with the Green Hair. She was fabulous and so is this product. I have issues after wearing mascara only a couple of hours and then seeing dark circles under my eyes. Used this product and circles never showed. Wore it out in the heat and still looked good 10 hours later. Thank you so much Kasey.
Riya from United States
I bought the product based on the highly rated reviews. However, this is not good for me. The product sticks to my eyelids. I do leave about 10 mins before I apply shadow. But, the shadow sticks to the base and it's not buildable. I am unable to do any motions with my brush to blend the product. The shadow then appears blobby and thick on my lids!
Dreese from Michigan
Use everyday. Awesome primer and base for all your eyeshadows!
I've worn makeup practically every day for the past 40 years and have tried all brands of primer. This is hands down the best.
Jaccett from Denver, CO
This primer keeps my eyeshadow and liner looking fresh for 24 hours. I apply it to the lid and below the eye. Another person said to let it dry before applying eye shadow and liner. I do the same and do not have any trouble. This by far is better than any other primer on the market. Thank you MAC for delivering a great product.

creasing??!!! we don't know her!!! this primer is now my go to! controls my very oily lids so well that instead of my eye makeup being toast by 2pm its still going strong!! my eyeshade DOES NOT MOVE!!! will absolutely purchase again!!
Liv from Arizona
Ever since moving to Arizona I knew I'd need a new primer - especially in the summer heat. I must say that this is an excellent primer - the best I've used. My eye makeup looked the same at 11pm as it did when I put it on at 6am. There was no fading and the color remained the same vibrant shade. This has become a staple in my makeup bag. I don't know where I'd be without it! If you want your makeup to stay intact and look fresh and survive the summer heat - this primer is what you need.
Cyan from New York
I have been using this primer for 2 years straight now. It's the only eye primer that I use. Highly recommend.
Anonymous from Portland, Oregon
Really great and lasts ALL DAY. compared to the urban decay primer potion which always leaves my lids oily at the end of its wear. And it is a good sized bottle that lasts me at least 6 months!
Shay from San Antonio TX
The primer did not work at all. My eyeshadow was gone within a few hours and it creased. I miss the old eyeshadow base called "Paints." The Paints eyeshadow base was fantastic. I don't know why Mac changed the product.
Rebecca from Killeen, TX
This does not work! My eyelids are stil creasing, actually they are creasing even faster then my old one. If you have oily skin doesn't even bother with this! It's a waste of money.
Kat from Texas
I have oily eyelids. Saw a review of eyeshadow primers on YouTube and this rated highly. I have not been disappointed. I have re-purchased this product.
Sarah from Worcester, MA
I have been using this eye primer daily for a couple of years now and love it. It's a small tube but a little goes a looooong way. I have very oily eyelids and could never get eyeshadow to even stay on my eyes and eyeliner just smudges off everywhere. Using a small dab of this primer on each eye (and waiting about a minute for it to set on the eye- that's key) my eyeshadow and eyeliner doesn't move and lasts literally all day until I take it off at night. It's been a real game changer for me. I highly recommend it.
KG from Seattle, WA
This is the best eyeshadow primer I've ever used. I found that it works better if you dust a little setting powder on your eyelid before applying the primer. I also dust a little setting powder on top of the primer, but it may not be necessary for everybody, but I've found that doing that makes the primer last longer.
Deanna from WI
I have tried a lot of different shadow primer, this is by far the best! I only wish I would have tried it sooner!
