Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great! Awesome value and works well, dries perfectly invisible. Still a good value, but wish it came in a bigger size, I go through it in less than a month.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slightly too sticky, but it works great I used the Putty eye primer for a long time until it became too dry and not worth constantly reviving it. This primer dries down tackier than the Putty eye primer, which is more waxy than sticky. It can grab a lot of eye shadow, making the colour pop by the sheer amount of product packed into one area. If you want to tweak the background colour of your eye lid to make a different contrast with your eye shadow, then you'd still need the Putty eye primer or another primer that has colour. But the Shadow Lock will do for most eye looks. Tip: Since the texture of Shadow Lock is very sticky, I would suggest to first apply a bit of translucent powder or a lighter version of your desire eye shadow colour where you will blend out and fade the colour. (For example: put down a pastel yellow above your crease before using a bright yellow under your crease, then blend the layers) The reason is to put down a more slippery layer before you put down something very intense on the very sticky area. It'd prevent the primer from grabbing way too much shadow in one spot, so the blend would be much smoother.

Does this primer hide creepiness in eyes over 60?

Asked by: Beeb
I'm 63 yrs. old & have been using this product in sheer for years. I find that it helps hide crepey skin on lids by evening out the skin tone. Sheer is a flat, matte light beige. It hides discolorations & makes the eye shadow color pop.

Do any of the shads tint your eyelid?

Asked by: helen366
The sheer is a matte, light beige. I find that it lightens & brightens the eyelids by evening out any discoloration. It does not change the color of your eye shadow.

Is this primer goes on matte or shimmery? I read some reviews that says glittery, so I want to ask people who has used it before: does it look glittery after it is dried?

Asked by: cathy45
The sheer is matte -- no shimmer at all.
