average primer. not as silky & smooth as other eye primers i've used so if you're not into silky primers but rather matte ones, this one would do....I love this concealer - at least that's what I use it for, under my eyes. It's creamy, luminous, and easy to use. It's not for spots that need more coverage, but great for highlighting areas of the face.
