Hard Candy Eyeshadow Primer Review

I am fairly impressed with the quality of this primer.
I must admit that I didn't think that this would be worth anything at all. I have used so many eyeshadow primers and my favorites are usually Urban Decay Primer Potion and Too-Faced Shadow Insurance. So when I got this in a set with some mascaras, eyeshadows, and an eyeliner I wasn't too sure what I would think of this one.
I tried out the product for a week before passing judgment on it. I did find that if you put too much on, your eyeshadow will crease. But this is true for many eyeshadow primers. 
The great thing about this product is that it goes on completely clear. It gives a slightly sticky base but it works great with an eyeshadow base over it, such as NYX Jumbo Pencils. It doesn't give any coverage like UDPP and Too-Faced SI does but if you put foundation over your eyes first and allow it to set in before applying the HC Primer it will work great.

So over all a good product and worth the cost of the set I got all by itself.
