Stick Em' Eye Shadow Enhancer




Stick 'Em adheres mineral eye shadows including glittery pigments, and helps enhance the color of mineral pigments. .  It also doubles as a foiling medium for wetlining your eyes.  There is no oil in it, so it plays well with matte colors as well.

It dries a little bit tacky, so pigments really stick to it, and is completely clear.  For some women this will be a great eye shadow primer- people with more oily lids may want to apply their favorite primer under the Stick 'Em to hold the pigments all day.

To use just apply a very thin layer to your lids.  Allow to dry for a few seconds, and then apply your favorite eye shadows.

Packaged in a 7 ml squeeze tube

Ingredients:  Distilled Water, Glycerin, Silica, Ethanol, Propanediol*, Dehydroxanthan Gum, Gluconoactone and Sodium Benzoate

Propanediol is a corn based Ecocert approved 100% natural humectant.  It makes the colors glide on like silk.


Review by Debra d
I had bought this primer a few years back and wasn't overly impressed. The shadows went on nicely but didn't seem to wear very well as the day went on. I was on a SN buying binge and figured I'd try it again. And again, on it's own, I wasn't impressed, but when I layered this over UD Minor Sin primer the result was great! I got smooth application and great color payoff plus all-day wear. Win!

I have deep-set eyes and oily skin and this is the only primer without scary ingredients that has ever kept creasing at bay for me. I also have very sensitive skin and this rarely causes my eyelids to itch. It's easy to blend on top of, and brings out the wonderful depths of shimmer in my eyeshadows. I feel like I re-discovered my makeup collection after I got this.

I love this little tube. I use very little on my lid and it does the job. I have very oily skin and if I don't use a very good primer then the only shadow you see left is the one on the stick ems!! HAHA not a good lool but this isn't letting your shadow go anywhere.

Review by Gabriela C
This worked really well for me. It made all of the eye shadows pop and last all day. The only con was that it seemed to mix with my foundation/powder that I had applied beforehand, so it got a little goopy. I would suggest leaving the eye area bare, then applying this.

Review by Maria D
When I first used this I was quite dissappointed. I felt it did nothing for me. BUUUUUT its because I had not unleashed all of its powers. This not only an eyeshadow primer (althought I don't like to use it for that) but it's a GREAT mixing medium. Yes, like macs mixing medium. The best two uses I have for it is to foil my glittery shadow and make sure it says and my favorite is to make eyeliner. YES. Mix a little bit with some of your fave eyeshadow and make a really long lasting eyeliner. This product is awesome. Get it. Here's tons more you can do with it.

Review by Joey F
I'm a convert! I'm too lazy to foil shadows and I've tried another very popular sticky base that would always end in a horrible mess. I was skeptical about Stick Em as I couldn't imagine a 'sticky' base that I could actually use mattes with or blend on top of. But, the reviews are all true, this stuff is frigging awesome. I can use it with mattes - no problem. Blending over this is a dream. It works. It just works! My eyeshadows really come to life over Stick Em and for the first time EVER, I have no creasing. I haven't used it on its own, I still use a primer as I have oil slicks for eyelids. No primer I have ever used stopped creasing on me... until now. After a full day and then cycling uphill to the grocery store, getting home an hour later, super sweaty...and no creasing on my eyelids!!! Please never stop making this - seriously, it's a miracle!!

This product hasReview by Jennifer G.
This product has made a vast improvement of my application of loose pigment eye shadows because I prefer not to have to foil my eyeshadows and this enhances the intensity of colour as well as ensures the shadow will adhere better to my eyes. I have very oily eyelids and although I use a primer specifically for oily lids, this product seems to increase the effectiveness of my primer to prevent creasing. I highly recommend this product to those of you who don't want to bother with foiling eye shadows, but want the increased intensity of colour while having all day wear.

This is a great primer to enhance eyeshadow application. I feel like the shadow sticks better and has a more vibrant color with this.

I have superReview by Brandi C.
I have super oily eyelids and have always used Urban Decay Primer Potion underneath my eyeshadow. It worked okay, but I would often get creases and fallout. Now I use Stick Em' on top of my primer, and for the first time ever, my eyeshadow stays perfect all day long!!! I still can't believe it when I come home at the end of the day and see that my eyeshadow looks just as good as when I first applied it! This is seriously a must-have product for me and for only $4.99, it's definitely worth a try!

Stick Em' comes in a clear tube about the same size as your average Carmex chapstick tube. The product itself is a clear gel that applies smoothly on the skin. I just apply my primer, use a very small amount of Stick Em' on my eyelids, wait about 30 seconds until it's just a bit tacky to the touch, and then brush my eyeshadow on top. I never get that annoying crease on my upper eyelid anymore! Even when I run my finger over my eyelids, the eyeshadow doesn't rub off! Yet it still comes off easily with warm water or an eye makeup remover. I'm going to stock up on this product so I never run out! :)

If you're aReview by Sue H.
If you're a fan of dramatic eye makeup as I am, this product is definitely worth buying. As its name implies, it intensifies and enhances colors and iridescence, and makes the look last for a lot longer than it would without the product.

My first experience with the product was with a kit, but I am using it under all my eye shadows and will not be without it again!

I really like Stick Em'! I have oily skin, and it makes the colors pop, and they don't crease. I sometimes where it alone or over a primer, and I love how it really does enhance the eyeshadows. Only a little does the trick, and know this tube will last a while! Thanks for the advice Karen!!

This is amazing.Review by Amy F.
This is amazing. I have used many other popular primers. This wins hands down.

Lasts around 10-12 hours; quite impressives for my oily lids. It dries to a satiny finish. Shadows seem to bloom and intensify. Lasts so long, you just use literally a drop for both eyes. LOVE the price!

It's not too sticky that you can't blend, but not too powdery either. Most other primers seem soooo good at being sticky, but shadows won't budge at all, making it hard to transition and blend colors. Blending is no problem with this primer.

I can't imagine going back to the 'other' primers now. The fact that its more natural makes me feel better, too! This should seriously win some kind of award!!

Wonderful fast dryingReview by Mona Tabita M.
Wonderful fast drying and pleasant gel that really enhances eyeshadows well.
It says it is an _eyeshadow enhancer_ , but I have worn my eye makeup for 9 hours straight now, and no creasing!
Colors stick well, sheen is enhanced and makes shadows go on much smoother than without anything, and the staying power is wonderful, even for me with oily eyelids.
I can absolutely recommend Stick `em for those who are tired of sticky, icky primers or primers that dry your eyelids out or cost more than a pair of shoes!
Get that Stick Em` out of your dreams and into your car(t).

I love toReview by sophie s.
I love to wear this over my normal base and it really stays until you take it off.
Enhances the colours of really every eyshadow (also non-mineral shadows) and it also works over a coloured base without creasing!
I really had problems with sticky bases in the past, but with this primer blending is super-easy, feels like nothing on the eyelid, but works as amazing as other bases.
Although i use this really every day since i got it the bottle seems still full, absolutely great!!!!!
Here in german:
Wahnsinns-Primer, spürt man fast kaum auf der Haut, aber intensiviert die Farben wunderbar und hält auch über farbigen Bases den ganzen Tag.
Blenden ist hier auch kein Problem, kenne kein vergleichbares Produkt, mit dem man so leicht arbeiten kann.
Und der Primer ist wahnsinnig sparsam, man braucht wirklich kaum Produkt für einen tollen Effekt. Absolut empfehlenswert!

And I thoughtReview by Anne A.
And I thought I could never find anything as good as my beloved Too Faced Shadow Insurance...
How wrong was I!
I had been using the TFSI for 4 years, tried the Urban Decay Primer Potion but did not fall in love with it, but what can I say... this is an amazing e/s base, mineral or not, and LOOK AT THE PRICE!
Please never ever discontinue this (although the small tube will last for a very long tilme and I probably won't be needing a new one at least for a year with almost daily use)

You have answered my prayers with this product! I cannot believe how great it is. I have tried most brands, usually not happy with them and always resorted to UDPP which worked pretty well. This is BETTER. Shadow stays all day, and even better, goes on like a dream now. You have outdone yourself!

I've been blownReview by Adrienne L.
I've been blown away by this primer. I work 12 hour graveyards and usually see Major Eyeshadow Failure very early on in the shift. UDPP gives me 4-6 hour wear time, but Stick Em'? AT LEAST 16 HOURS. Totally not joking. My eye makeup looks just as good as when I take it off at 7am as it did when I put it on the previous afternoon. Absolutely BRILLIANT!!!

This has replacedReview by Andrea D.
This has replaced my trusty UDPP (Urban Decay Primer Potion), and I'm never looking back. I have oily lids, and this keeps the shadows uncreased from am to pm. I can easily blend on it too, and little goes a long way. No flaking or rubbing off or patching like with some other primers. The colors look noticeably better than without a thin layer of this magical stuff :)

I never usedReview by Samantha E.
I never used to use primers, but I fell in love with this one. It's great for foiling, or otherwise keeping shades true all day long. I've used it in the morning and still had my look going strong 12 hours later with no creases. It's especially fantastic for shadows with extra glitter in them that tend to lose their wow factor after the glitter falls off- this keep the shimmer where you put it!
