Why it's great: Readers say this primer "adds a subtle sheen and color for a nice glow." It is "my absolute go-to holy grail of eye shadow primers," swears one. It is also an "absolute must-have if you use any sort of mineral eye shadow, because shadows stick to my eyelids like metal to a magnet." One person says she can "work all day, work out, sweat like a pig and my eye shadow will stay put" with this primer. And one reader found that applying a little under the lower lash lines and setting it lightly with powder "will keep my mascara from smudging." Brilliant.
