handsdown worst eyelid primer
I recently started using MAC and I love the quality of their products. But I was severely disappointed with this primer I spend 20 dollars on it and my eye shadow was creased within 2 hours.

Goes on smooth and dries instantly. Works well with all the shadows and concealers Ive used so far. A little goes a long way. I have found this product to be just as the description states, a textured cream. It is creamy but dries in an instant when applied. I like it

Hate lid creases? Love deep, noticable, long lasting colour?
Apply this before your eyeshadow, and you'll be batting those lids all day, knowing that your work or play, can't STOP the long lasting effects of this Lid primer!!!!!

Favorite eye primer
Tags +Smudge resistant, Extends eye makeup wear, Crease resistant
Highly recommended eye shadow primer. Gives just enough coverage to conceal unwanted tones in the skin and extends the wear of eye shadow. Absolutely love this! It's also crease resistant which is so hard to find in an eye primer these days.

Do not buy!
I have other prep + prime products that I love, so I thought this was a sure bet. Nope, not at all! It does not help makeup stick, bring out the pigment, nothing. It creases my eyeshadow more than without any primer underneath. I've since been to my local MAC shop and discussed with the employees, who agreed with me and said there are much better products to use for prepping the eye for shadow. This is the downfall of online ordering. It's so much better to go and ask the pros their opinions. Unfortunately this was a huge waste of money.

Disappointed
Tags +frustrating you
My first experience is MAC cosmetics was a "paint pot" for priming eye shadow, so when I went to replace this and there wasn't one on the website, I ordered the only primer there, which is the prep and prime. It's worthless. Worse than that, it leaves creases in my eye-shadow. Don't waste your money on this one.

The paste does not hold up for more than 6-8hr but, over all is worth it.

A must for pigments!
Tags +Extends eye makeup wear, Crease resistant, pigments, truer eye shadow colors
This works the best underneath pigments to really set the pigments in place. The product is a bit oily and tacky so a small amount goes a long way and the jar lasts forever! It also helps prevent creasing. I don't use it as much anymore because the quality of the eye shadow really determines the need for a primer. Concealers or foundations can be just as effective.

Better as a concealer
Tags +Extends eye makeup wear, eyes
Nice and light texture, easy to apply but you have to make sure you use only a little. I cannot say it prevents creasing. I even think my eye shadow looks better without this product. The good thing it does: neutralizes your lid color, conceals.

prep + prime eye
Needs to have lighter and darker shades. Very "cakey." Does not apply smoothly. I do not think it improves quality or longevity of eye shadows.

Highly creasing itself, not recommending
Tags +eyebrow define
hello
I tried this for my eyelid and my sister's
mine is oily and it did not really help. the texture seems to be oily itself
then i tried on sister's lids and it is dry - what is does is it is caking, it makes all the wrinkles visible badly because of described above
the only thing i can say that it gives nude colour to the skin so i found the way to use it: i use it to define my eyebrows, and to conceal my dark circles: they are not too bad so this pre prime eye is enough for me

Tags +Smudge resistant, Extends eye makeup wear, Crease resistant
Honestly, this product does the job, but it's not the best. Painterly paint pot is far the best primer in my opinion and if you are going to spend the money, i'd go with painterly and not this product.

Not to sure about this product

I did use this for a while and couldn't tell if it was really doing what it was supposed to until I purchased the painterly paint pot. It is okay! Id much rather use the paint pot any day..

I LOVED IT!I was hesitant about getting this product based on the reviews that I read. But I believe you have to try things for yourself. And it paid off!!! Got what I expected. No creasing at all which is what I was looking for

settles into creases
I bought it thinking it would be the best eye shadow primer ever but it totally creased underneath my eyes and it was just an alright base. I think other brands are more suited but this.

Not great...

Sorry MAC, this is one product I don't recommend to others... I find that it creases really easily, and I don't have that problem with the Urban Decay primer. I tried to love it, but just didn't work for me.

This primer is also great for to use as for light concealer coverage. Especially good for oily skin under the eyes since it won't slip off and not greasy at all. No caking either. Apply before foundation.
