works very well

Rose

This is very good lid primer. provides a nice base before eyeshadow and i find my eyeshadow applies much smoother and pigmentation shows up well. Also keeps a heavy eyeshadow look on for longer than without a primer. would recommend

Unfortunately did crease on me

Mandstar87

Wanted to love this product as price point is good compared to other high end brands. Unfortunately this one creased on me. The only eyelid primer I have found so far that doesn’t do this is the Nars eyelid primer. Just wish that wasn’t so expensive.

I have hooded eyes so creasing is always a big issue for me. This might be more suitable for you if you don’t have hooded eyes.

  3. Awesome!

    BrianaBanana

    I’d never even heard of eyelid primer before, and wow it makes a difference! I have oily skin and normally after a log day my eyeshadow would’ve all moved to my eyelid crease. Hasn’t happened at all since I bought this!
  4. Great!

    Joel

    Great before eyeshadow and I reach for it all the time!
  5. Best eye primer ever!

    Rebecca

    I've tried a few before and this is my favourite. I don't like a colour base, I like it clear and this does that while giving a good smooth feel. Highly recommend!
  6. Lightweight beautiful eye primer that works

    Marlia

    This is my new go-to product before any eye shadow application. I have noticed my shadow staying on all day and holds up pigment well on the eye.
    It is a lightweight semi-greasy formula but sinks into the eyelid well and quickly.
    Great price for this product and a little goes quite a long way.
  7. enhances my eyeshadow

    yil

    This stuff enhances my eyeshadow which is perfect for my shimmer shadows because it adds extra shine!
  8. Great for oily eyelids

    Bayden

    If you’re like me, you’ll know how oily eyelids smudge eye makeup. This primer really helps makeup stay on my eyelids and look oerfect
  9. For me

    Jay

    I feel like this was made for me! Does an amazing job making my eyeshadow go th3 distance
  10. fine and creaseproof

    Mani

    after using this before my eye makeup i noticed that my makeup did not crease. it is difficult to blend with a brush but otherwise it did make me happy
  11. everyday eyelid primer

    perfecting skin

    it is a good eyelid primer that lasts for the entire day and will not crease the eyeshadow. i would not say it is the best but price wise it does what it says.
  12. good everyday eyelid primer

    perfecting skin

    it does what it says. i have just used it for the max of 8 hours so i know i stays on that long. it is good everyday eyelid primer. i feel it a bit thin in consistency.
  13. Fantastic eye primer

    BecW

    This primer is the bomb! First caught on to this because it was recommended by renowned makeup artist Lisa Eldridge. It does not create this oil slick as time goes by where the products “oils” separate in the tube and all you get oil on your first squeeze- I hate that. My eyelids aren’t oily, and this formulation goes on like a silicon-y cream would, keeps my eyeshadow in place. A bonus is a littl...

  14. A nice light eye primer

    Nimali

    This a great primer for mature skin or hooded eyes as it is very thin and doesn't build up on the skin. I also find it helps with application of colour corrector and concealer under the eyes too. It's not the best for making eye-shadow last but does a decent job.
  15. A Must Have - Obsessed

    Maddison

    I LOOOOOOVE this eyelid primer!! Works amazingly well and creates a great base for your eyeshadows to cling to. My eyeshadow will last ALL DAY & NIGHT with this beauty. I seriously don't know how i survived without it and it will now be a permanent part of my make-up arsenal. GREAT value for money as you only need the tiniest amount. Can not recommend this product highly enough!!
  16. Good basic eye primer

    Bec

    This primer is good for reducing the oil on my lids. However, my eyeshadow did not last as long throughout the day as with other primers. Recommended for those who don't need to spend a lot of time out and about during the day,
  17. Good but not long lasting

    Jenny

    Super easy to apply and doesn't mess up your eyeshadow -- only thing is I don't see this extending the wear of my eyeshadows necessarily, and has only really been effective in helping me apply the eyeshadows in the first place
  18. AMAZING

  19. Works well!

    Ciara

    Great product. I didn’t think that it worked until I did my eyeshadow without it one day, it makes a huge difference to application and how long it lasts. I would never go back to not using this product. Great value for money as you only need a tiny amount.
  20. Combats oily lids amazingly!

    Yasemin

    I get really oily eyelids this primer did not even let my eyelids get close to oily! Love his product!
  21. Love Love Love it!

    Taki

    It does exactly what it says, it lasts all day long and I have issue with oily eyelids and for that price it is a steal. Highly recommend to give it a go as I definitely will be purchasing it again.
  22. MAGIC

    Nicole

    I was used to using heavy products that prime your eyes, so when i got this and gave it a go I wasnt sure what to expect as its super light weight.
    Well it works better than any primer I have ever tried. My eye shadow doesn't smudge, smear or crease at all ! Its super light weight, a little goes a long way, and lasts right until you wash it off. LOVE
  23. Works a Treat!

    Renee

    I recently tried this for the first time and I can say that I am happy with the result it gives, of making my eyeshadow last all day and well into the night! Normally my eyeshadow will fade and wear off after a few hours, but with the use of this primer, it has made my eyeshadow truly last!
  24. A great primer!

    Alex

    I was frustrated with my eye make up every time I saw them smudge. I've tried 'Put a lid on it' for a week and it is so good! My eyeliner lasts the whole day until I remove them at night. I don't even need to worry if my eyeliner has smudged.
  25. Nice

    Barbara

    A little goes a long way. It holds eyeshadows really nicely.
  26. Great for oily lids

    Cait

    This is perfect if youve got oily eyelids it makes my eyeshadow last for ages and not crease- definitely recommend it!
  27. Awesome

    Schar

    This was the first eye primer I bought and now I don't even need to bother buying several other brands to find one I like, like with most make up products. It feels a little greasy to apply but it holds the eye shadow colours really well and all day!
  28. Great for oily lids but doesn't help with making a product long-lasting.

    Samantha

    This product is great if you oily lids but doesn't help with making a product long-lasting for the full night...
  29. Excellent Product!

    Emily

    Such a great eye primer, shadows last all day and don't fade. Its easy to apply and you only have to use the smallest amount so the product lasts forever!!
  30. Quality product

    mptypkts

    I love this primer! I use it on my smile lines as my makeup seems to love building up there and it makes a significant difference. I even used it as an all over face primer one night when I ran out of my usual and my face did not budge through a 9hr shift and 2hr horse ride. No drying effect and only slightly tacky so it’s still flexible. Love love love it.
  31. Great quality!

    Megan

    One of the best eye primers I've come across. Feels greasy to apply but dries down perfectly well and pretty quickly.
    I found it doesn't just work for eyes but for the areas when I find my foundation tends to move (nose and just below under my eyes where my reading glasses sit).
    After a days wear, my eyeshadow is still vibrant, and hasn't budged.
  32. Not sure

    Darcy

    I didn't love how oily this made my eyelids. It wasn't horrible but it just wasn't great. The upside is that it's fairly cheap. I wouldn't repurchase this one.
  33. Not a fan

    monique

    I found this primer to be quite runny and thin. Which resulted in making my eyelids more oily than usual. I found that my eyeshadow did not stay in place when using it, especially in the heat. Wasn’t the worst primer I’ve had, yet definitely not the best.
  34. Good product for oily eyelids

    Scarlett

    My eyelids generally get quite oily during the day and therefore my eyeshadow does not always last very long. This primer has really helped with that, I wouldn't put eyeshadow on without using this first. You have to get just the right amount to put on your eyelid so that is not greasy but still affective but once you work out that ratio it is fantastic. It also lasts a really long time as you onl...

  35. Works like a charm

    Pamela

    This fantastic primer eases shadow application, locks it in place, and prevents smudging, fading or settling into lid creases all day.
    The trick is to not be worried that it feels oily at first, take a tiny amount and pat it into the eyelid super-gently, before very lightly swiping your pinky once over the top to even it out. And then *wait* for one or two minutes for it to completely set. ...

  36. Not that big of a fan

    Briana

    I’ve tried a few eyeshadow primers and this one is not my favourite, it’s very thin and sticky and it’s just not for me
  37. Can’t believe it!

    Vanita

    I have always had issues with my eye makeup sliding off as quickly as I put it on. My eyeshadow never lasted and by lunchtime you could hardly tell I’d even made an effort that morning.
    I have tried many products, some that did improve the situation but not as much as this eye primer. The results have been incredible and you only need to use the smallest amount to achieve success. At the en...

  38. Very happy!

    Kayles

    This is the first eye primer I've even used and I'm very happy with it.
    In comparison to other brands the price is great, and it definitely does the job.

    I haven't used it properly yet for long periods of time with eye shadow on, but did test it out at home and it helped with the application of my shadows and definitely made them a little more pigmented. I found them a little ...

  39. Excellent - buy it!

    Fiona Lucy

    The best eyeshadow primer I've tried in a long time. Does what it says it does. Makes shadow last without creasing. The eyeshadow colour doesn't fade if using this underneath. And a good price! You can't beat it. A little goes a long way. Literally only need the tiniest bit to prime both eyelids.
  40. Super smooth and lasts all day

    S.

    you really only need the tiniest bit. It is tinted slightly, and helps my eyeshadow stay in place. Definitely recommend giving it a try!
  41. Excellent eye primer, a little goes a long way.

    Sonia

    I'm really happy with this primer. It is lightly tinted and you only need a very small amount. It makes my eyeshadow last all day. My eye makeup looks just as good at the end of a 9 hour day as when I applied it in the morning. Take care not to use too much though. I applied too much product at first and wasn't keen as it was greasy but when I got the amount right it's fine. My HG eye primer w...
