Good base...nice color...Best Eyelid Primer...There was some creasing, but I have to give it a lot of credit for keeping most of my make up on after over 12 hours of wear at a music festival, which means a lot of heat, sweat, and dancing.
What it is:
A water-resistant eyelid primer that camouflages imperfections and discolorations, while it enhances the durability of eye makeup.

What it does:
Eye Basics provides the perfect canvas for eyelids to help eye color stay on longer. The highly versatile formula is water-resistant and crease-proof. Its sheer, creamy texture blends easily and smoothly, leaving a long-lasting, semi-matte finish.

What else you need to know:
Use as an eyelid primer or alone to color correct and cover imperfections. Its skin-friendly ingredients enhance the delicate skin on the eyelids while botanicals soothe and vitamins A, E, and C provide antioxidant protection. The Eyebright shade makes the white of the eyes brighter and lighter. The Peach shade is perfect for darker skin tones.

This product is free of fragrance.

No joke...Holy Grail...I loved the price point but am sad that this is not something I would repurchase....This worked well and I really liked the pearl essence on my eyelids, the make up stayed put and it was easy to apply, a little went a lone way and was creamy and smooth, but I must be allergic to something in the formula as my eyes watered intensely every time I wore it so unfortunately it was returned for Urban decay.
What it is:
A lightweight, non-greasy, non-sticky formula that sets the stage for perfect, lasting eye-makeup application.

What it does:
This smooth-textured essential glides over the eyelid without dragging. It performs like a magnet, preventing eyeshadow from migrating and creasing. Micro-encapsulated pigments float over the eye area, finessing skin texture and blurring fine lines. Use the Smoky shade to prep your lids for a smoldering smoky-eye look.

BECCA LOVE...Holy grail...I do enjoy this product a lot....It's good and has a package too cute I really liked it only to note that it does not conceal the circles as much as I had thought but it is a good option when choosing an ideal corrector to take anywhere its packaging is beautiful
What it is:
A cooling, anti-fatigue eye balm and primer in one that preps the skin for smooth makeup application.

What it does:
Coverage can only go so far. This priming balm smooths and blurs the look of fine lines while reducing puffiness. Infused with cucumber, matcha green tea, and caffeine, the sheer and velvety texture effortlessly melts into the skin to condition the eye area. It perfectly preps the under-eyes for corrector and concealer application, so makeup never creases or looks cakey.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates

Fair shade...Good tube....the application is great!...It requires a few simple steps to be perfect, but after about a month of using it I just went on a trip where I wore the same straight up black eyeshadow for almost 48 hours, and it only started to crease around hour 30.
What it is:
An eyeshadow primer that color corrects and primes lids according to skin tone, creating a smooth, even base for audacious eye looks.

What it does:
Lock-It Color Correcting Eyeshadow Primer is the first eye primer to feature five shades that target discoloration and smooth the appearance of imperfections according to your skin tone. Unlike one-shade-fits-all primers, Kat’s formula color corrects your specific skin tone to neutralize lids so that you can show off super-saturated, true color payoff. In an easy-to-use twist stick, this primer features 16-hour wear and Multi-Faceted Color Correcting Pigments for a smooth, even canvas that keeps eye looks in place while keeping them vibrant. With this eye primer, eyeshadow applies pure and true, color payoff is intensified, and eye looks stay fade-proof and crease-free for lasting wear.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates

What else you need to know:
While this eye primer is formulated for all skin types, it’s especially effective on oily eyelids and in hot, humid climates.

Artistry tip: Apply Lock-It Color Correcting Eyeshadow Primer along the lower lash line to prep for a smoky eye look. Extending the primer from your lid down to the lower lash line ensures that shadow and liner stay locked in place.

Have fun!...great tool...Yeah, no... terrible idea....This stuff is great for creating eyeliner out of eyeshadow which gives you nurmerous options and a less harsh line versus eyeliner pencils...I am not quite sure if it's as good as it's predecessor "Eye Seal" but it has been effective enough...Probably works best with wet/dry shadow but I have had good results with a specific inexpensive brush (thin and less porous)...Be sure when cleaning your brush and any vessel you use to deposit the product that you wash them first in a product that is used

good primer....Sephora win!...I definitely recommend this primer....Makes blending more seamless; however, I still need to use a makeup lock because I have very oily lids and the color will crease within hours if I don't set it with something else, so It doesn't really make it stay put all day...pretty good for the price.

Best Primer Ever!...Wow this is gold!...Hands down best primer ever!...The one thing that confused is that when I used it with any type of matte foundation, it would stick to certain spots on my skin and clump up and if I set my under eyes with a loose translucent power, it left a weird line underneath my eyes where the powder met unset foundation and would not blend out.
