I have tried so many eye primers, and they all crease. And my eyelids aren't oily! I don't think one exists that doesn't crease, but this Clinique primer is as close as I've been able to get. I've tried less expensive and more expensive primers than this one, and they all behaved the same - creases by noon. This one last me all day without creasing, and I only notice tiny creases after a workout. Pretty perfect in my book! Just a note: I typically apply this, let it dry, and then set it with a little bit of loose powder before applying eyeshadow. That seems to be the best process for me.
I used the lid smoothie and all about eyes for years. I LOVED the lid smoothie as a primer for my all about eyes shadow. When they discontinued the lid smoothie, I tried this and the touch base. neither even come close to the lid smoothie. Now my eyeshadow has fallout when applying and at the end of the work day my eyeshadow color is barely there. It's a huge waste of money for all products. A waste of money for the pseudo primer, and now a waste of money for the All About Eyes Eyeshadow because the colors don't even stay on. I now have to find a whole new eyeshadow and primer brand.

When I put this on, it did nothing. It is on the watery side. Did not even out lid color or texture. Did not affect the application or lasting power of eye shadow. I have purchased Elf eye primer in the past and this seems like the exact same product. Elf is cheaper but you don't get as much. Either way, not a repurchase for me. I prefer Clinique nude rose touch base.

I used to use this product and then ran out and haven't felt the need to replace it. I recently was reading an online eyeshadow tip and it suggested using a shadow primer. Remembering that I had used this product in the past, I decided to purchase it again. I am glad I purchased this as I forgot how nice it works to set the eye shadow.

I have given this a good go, but after a couple hours, my shadow is just one line across the middle of my lid. I have tried using just a little and using more. I think I'm doing it right. It's pretty straight forward, but not happy for the price I paid.

Primer goes on easy. It's more like a concealer with skin color. Product is ok but will wait till I can purchase my MAC primer.

This primer does a great job keeping my eyeshadow in place.

This year i have had to switch all of my makeup to Clean/Sensitive/ Optamologist approved after I had a year long recovery from clogged eyelid pores. I used to use the urban decay primer as it was one of the best. I was upset to change and the reviews on clean makeup is ALL OVER THE PLACE. But this works so well!! My eyedshadow didnt even crease which happened with urban decays! and of course this doesnt make my eyes itch

This is a fantastic product. It helps keep the eyeshadow stay put even in hot and humid weather.

I bought this thinking it would make my eye shadow stay on and it doesn't! Wont buy this brand again.
I truly like this product very much. It looks great and holds the shadow even in this hot and humid weather. If you decide to buy it, you will not regret it.

I do my daughter's make-up for pageants and dance and this is a good base once you can get it out of the tube. Problem is that it is too thick and gooey and doesn't like to come out.

Only a small amount needed. No piling or irritation. You can quickly apply this with one small touch of applicator to each eyelid. Shadow lasts all day.

Pretty natural color. You do not have to wear a color over it if you are on the go.

This product is very disappointing. Instead of keeping my eye shadow from creating it feels like it creates creasing.

I like all clinique products but this one does not work for me. My eyeshadow still creases. It's even worse with it than without.

I bought this as a substitute for Touch Base as Clinique has stopped making it. Totally disappointed. This is no substitute. My eyeshadow atill creases and my eye liner still rubs off to the crease of my eye. @Clinique, please bring back Touch Base!!!!
Marti Sparkle from Bradenton, FL
I use to use Touch Base for eyes. I couldn't find it anywhere so I asked the Clinique lady what would be a good substitute for it. She recommended the All About Shadow Primer for /eyes. I love it so much better that the Touch Base. It was drying to my skin and the All About Shadow is creamy and doesn't dry the skin above my eyes out.

Didn't work for me. Eyeshadow started creasing within two hours, even in dry winter months.

Dawn from Kansas City
As primer for powder eye shadow. It is silky to apply, shadow stays all day

It does not keep the eye makeup on

I have sensitive eyelids and this helps protect my eyelids so I can wear the makeup I want without irritating my eyes.
