Rated 3 out of 5 by LowMaintenancePreferred Enjoyed While It Lasted
I ordered this product in Candlelit Peach, and loved it as a base eye color. I did not find it to hold shadow well as a primer, however I could layer one color over it easily (I would use the 5-in-1 under my eyebrows, and a different color on the lid itself). The color is neutral enough to be a base color, while providing a bit of shimmer to look elegant. I enjoyed it very much for a few months.
I did find it to dry out pretty quickly - the smooth liquid texture that I loved so much turned into a cakey paste in about three months (I don't wear makeup all the time, so I had only used about half of the container at this point). I also agree with reviews that say it is hard to get the last of the product out of the glass container with the wand - an unfortunate situation when you pay so much for such a small container.
I did love this product while it lasted, but probably won't buy it again.

I was skeptical to try this new product, as often when something gets changed, it is NOT better...this stuff is AWESOME!!! I love the colors, it is easy to put on and actually stays put ALL DAY. I am the oiliest person I have ever met and I can get through a 9 hour work day plus a few more night time hours with this stuff. Plain or with eyeshadow on. BareMinerals, you gals ROCK!
Rated 4 out of 5 by shinning Great product
This is the best of all the primers for my eyes. I have sensitive eyes and had no problem with this product. I have purchase 3 and truly love the way it glides on and allows power shadows without caking. The only negative is that it dries out way too fast.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KristinH Eyes need protection too
This is such an easy to use product and it gives your eyes SPF protection. How much better can it get? Not sure but I am going to use this until the BM developers find it. I love being able to protect the skin on my eyelids and have great color - people never think of sunscreen for your eyes and lips - both such important areas. Thanks for this product.

I have been meaning to review this for years. I absolutely love this 5 in 1. I have always had issues with my eyeliner on my oily eyelids smudging and causing the line to end up halfway up my eyelid. No matter what what eyeliner I used it would happen, and my eyeshadow lasted maybe half a day before it wiped off. I tried other primers that worked okay, but not as well as this stuff. I won't even leave the house without using this. My eyes look the same at the end of they day as when I first put it on. LOVE!
Rated 1 out of 5 by 1Mitzi1 BB 5-in one Espresso ( new color )
I own every color in these and was very disappointed in the espresso. It was dryer than most and came out a purple color ( yuk ) I was hoping for a more dark brown color. Wish she could come out with a darker color than sweet spice in a brown color ( please )
Rated 5 out of 5 by CeeKayGee Learning Curve....but love them! My new Go-To!
Apparently I am getting old and with getting old my eyeballs get more sensitive and crabby. I've used powder eyeshadows from high end and drugstore brands, ones that are "safe" for contact lens wearers, ones that are hypo-whatever, ones that are completely "pure", and no matter what I do, I get that eyelid itch.
I recently read on one of the many makeup sites I read that some people develop sensitivity to powders, whether they are matte or shimmer, because the microscopic grains get in your eyes or because your eyes are voodoo or whatever. So I decided to try a cream eyeshadow, and I liked that this had so many benefits, including SPF.
I bought the taupe, which is a great all over color, the Divine Wine and the Smoky Espresso for a crease color. All 3 are gorgeous. There IS a learning curve to blending and applying - you have to be fast, and it's better to start out small and build up/add more if you want more of am impact with a darker color like Espresso. But they stay on my eyes ALL DAY, no creasing, no irritation, and just look so beautiful.
I'm still learning on how to blend these best - right now I apply a dot to my eyelid with the doe foot applicator (a little goes a long way) and then blend with my finger. After so many eye reactions in the past, these are my new HG! I'm hooked and sold on 'em!

I received this as a free gift with my purchase of eyeshadow. Had I not just bought eyeshadow, I would be running back and picking up more. This is absolutely perfect eyeshadow! It goes on great, dries fairly quickly (with enough time to blend crease but not take forever drying). Great long-lasting and durable. The day I wore this included rubbing my eyes, cutting onions, taking a light quick shower and my eyeshadow was still there at the end of the night!! I understand it's a new product and they did just add a non-nude color but I hope they come out with some more different colors!

I really love this creamy shadow!! I have not used a creamy shadow in years, I got this in a mystery box, and it is the best, will definitely be purchasing in other shades! I put it on after using a base of a pale pink BE powder shadow, works like a charm. I use my finger to apply it to the crease, then use a brush to spread it out, takes no time at all, and looks fabulous!!!

Best eyeshadow ever. Never creases never clumps. No dust in your eyes!
