Rated 2 out of 5 by from Helps color payoff but creases :( When I use it, I have to do a thick layer or the color payoff isn't that great. Whether it is a thin or thick layer, my eyes always crease. So it kind of ruins my whole look. For maybe the first hour, it's not so bad but it goes downhill after that. The eyeshadow does pop more than without a white base.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm not sure what the horrid reviews are about... I decided to give this a try from Ulta because the price was right. I decided to do a cut crease the first time I used it and I will say I was surprised by the texture. Seemed very thin and "smeary" but the coverage was good so I kept going. It did seem "wet" so when I used my eyeshadow over it I did dab/stiple/pack on the color, I didn't try to blend it at all until I had it covered and let it set for a couple of minutes. Then continued on and blended it where I wanted. It lasted all night at work so I tried it again last night, and again, not disappointed. I'm a nurse and work 12 hour shifts where we're running around and sweating all night long. And it held up for what ended up being 14+ hours. The pictures don't do it justice because I'm crappy at taking makeup pictures lol. Also, I didn't notice any sparkles in this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from meh as a primer, good as a color corrector ok so I had ordered this in white a while ago as a gift, but accidentally got sent "skin tone", and didn't want to go through the hassle of returning it. it was just sitting sitting around when I decided to try it out. I've never used an eyeshadow primer before, and don't usually do intense eyeshadow colors, so it seemed to work ok as an eyeshadow primer. however, I have fairly hooded eyes, and everything seems to crease sooner or later for me. however, it was kinda weirdly the exact color of my skin at the end of the summer. it's like this warm peachy/yellowy/pinky situation, and since I have dark circles under my eyes (genetic, as a hollow and discoloration), i figured I'd experiment w it as a color corrector, and holy guac! does it make a noticeable difference. i just use a little bit, jut in the area of discoloration, it's helps cancel out of the gray/blue/purple soooo well, and then i'll just put my powder foundation on top, and it's perfect, especially for $7.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from You Couldn't Pay Me to Use It. I picked this up at a Beauty Brands because it was the only eyeshadow primer they have... Thank goodness I tested it out before my 12 hour shift tomorrow!! I got it in white. For starters, it's white and sparkly. Secondly, I was expecting it to go on opaque, and it did not. It felt really oily going on. When I started putting shadow on, I feel like it made my brush drag and hard to blend my colors. And last but not least, this is after only FOUR HOURS of wear. :'( Glad I'm just lounging the house today because this looks awful!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer's Remorse I needed something to hold me over while I was on my trip. This was recommended by a Ultra employee so I got it. I don't care for the sparkles. It creases LIKE A MUGGGGG on me no matter how thin I put it and I'm not that oily. I wanted my colors to pop against a white base. This wasn't white enough to do that. I went on and totally skipped the base BC my eye-shadow was better without it. I'll be returning it or giving it away.
