It has a silky finish.On application,you can feel some stickiness but that goes away once the primer sets.

Only a small amount is required and a little goes a  long way.

It definitely increases the pigmentation of the eyeshadows and helps them adhere to lids for a longer time without creasing or fading.

The staying power of the shadows is increased and they stay for about 5-6 hours on my oily lids.
