Yes, this stuff really does help!! Before using this, I'd have the problem of my eye shadow migrating to the creases in my eyelids no matter what I did. I've noticed I get the best results with this if I put it on my eyelids, let it sit for a few minutes until it's dry to the touch, then apply my eye shadow. Since doing that I've never had the problem of my eye shadow going to the creases of my eyes or rubbing off. It's light, too. I never feel like I have caked on makeup all over my eyelids.
