No joke...Holy Grail...My friend gave me the Kat Con D interstellar eyeshadow pallet and while I love that, I hate the primer that she also gave me....keeps my makeup beautiful for prolonged periods of time, however, it applies a little yellow, so I would recommend making sure you have a light color for under your eyebrow (frontal bone area) just so you can cover up the yellowness of it.
