It’s nearly transparent when applied and light-as-air. I love that it helps my eyeshadow stay on all day without creasing but doesn’t mute the vibrancy, either. The matte finish also allows me to wear matte eyeshadows without changing the texture. When I need an eyeshadow primer, this is the one I reach for. This is the only eyeshadow primer I’ve repurchase in the past few years.
