Ever since the BALM made its appearance in Malaysia about 6 years ago, I have been a fan as I am drawn towards the cute and sometimes quirky packaging and name of the products. I think it is very clever to come up with such names. theBALM Put A Lid On It Eyelid Primer is quick-drying eyelid primer. theBALM’s packaging is never boring and this product is no exception as the tube is yellow.
This product is crafted to achieve lasting coverage and reliable stay-ing power for a consistent look all day. In addition, this primer has light-reflective properties which enhance eyelids for a brilliant effect. You can can tell it has light-reflective properties as soon as you squeeze some out of the tube. This gives any eye shadow a slightly brilliant effect.
The creamy primer is very smooth and easy to apply on to lids. For best effects, pat on to lids and leave for 1 minute before applying eye shadow. Some of my eye shadows tend to be chalky and when I us them with theBALM Put A Lid On It Eyelid Primer, it stays put, doesn’t migrate to elsewhere. This primer makes eye shadow last for hours, no fading. It’s a useful product for people like me who have oily lids.
The tube may not appear to be very big but with almost 12ml of product, it will last a long time as you don’t need much. I won’t say taht lid primers are a must-have for everyone but it’s good to have a base so that it forms a barrier between skin and eye shadow. In this way, oils from skin will not affect the eye shadow, keeping eye shadow from fading. Also, this primer does a great job at intensifying eye shadows, colours are so much more outstanding when applied over theBALM Put A Lid On It Eyelid Primer.
theBALM Put A Lid On It Eyelid Primer retails at RM111/11.8ml.
