The primer is not bad. Like other reviewers have said you kind if have to warm it up a bit so it can be applied better but for the price it does a pretty good job. I haven't used the line sealed yet. I would re-purchase definetely!
I dont use a liner wo this review is based soley on the primer. Nothing special but it isnt horrible. I have a natural crease in my eyelid so my eyeshadow is gonna crease regardless if I use a cheap primer, the most expensive, or the one rated as the best. As for the other areas of my eyes I believe this primer holds my eyeshadow in place very well despite my very greasy eyelids.
A really neat little product concept. The primer is excellent its slightly harder than your average concealer but warm it up a little with your finger and it's fine. Looks rather yellowy peachy in the tube but it hides redness/any veins on your lids for perfect shadow application - and boy does it amplify the intesity of your shadow. Unfortunately it creases within hours I'm better off not wearing a primer than this.
the liner sealer is workable but can make a real mess - all in all wouldn't rate this product.
Do people even read the product directions? You're not supposed to use this over eyeliner (I know from the name it sounds that way) you're supposed to swipe it in an eyeshadow and then use it as a liquid eyeliner. From the website and packaging: "The Liner side transforms your favorite eye shadow into a waterproof, smudge-proof liquid liner with this unique clear liquid and built-in felt tip precision eyeliner brush."
I like to use it with my pigments or Bare Escentual loose eyeshadows. Really neat way to get unique coloured eyeliners! When used as its intended, my liner lasts all day. Really impressed.
I do not line the primer on this, so I'm only really reviewing about the sealer. That's why I took of a point for the overall rating; the primer is pretty crappy in my opinion.
The sealer is a lifesaver, however. It keeps my gel/cream liner in place. I have very oily eyelids, and usually the only thing that stays on is liquid liner, however liquid liner always gets all over my lashes while I'm applying it. I prefer the gel liner. So I apply my gel liner, then I apply the sealer and it stays all day. There might be a tiny bit of smudging, but no where near what it used to be. I can even do liner on my lower line and apply this on top, and it stays! I do have problems with the liner staying on the outside corner of my eyes (yes I do apply primer there), but no where near what I used to.
I wish it came without the primer. I don't use it and it'll go to waste. I've been using one of the other ELF primers and it works great.
I liked the primer side better then the liner side. Just because the liner side stung, but also I didn't really have a use for it.... But I would definitely reconnect the primer side!!
The Liner Sealer:
Isn't good at all. Tried using it, and frankly it just made a mess on my eyes. I don't recommend anyone use this part just because the product sucks. The packaging is adorable cause I slip it into my purse and no problems.
I give the Liner sealer a 2/5 l/s
Awesome at times. When i'm getting ready, I put it under a light or blow dryer for a few seconds to get the primer a little creamy because it's a little rough on the eye lid especially when you shouldn't tug on the eye to prevent wrinkles. So it's good a little heated and it does not crease or anything like that.
I give it 4/5
I wanted so badly to like this. I'm a big fan of the packing. It looks so cute. And it looks like the perfect little thing to slip into your bag and take it anywhere and everywhere...No. When I first got this product, I followed directions to the T, and it still works awfully. First off, It hurts really badly. The stick is rough and stretches that delicate skin around your eyes. It also always looks caked on. Secondly, any kind of eye makeup or even powder that goes over this looks caked on as well. It also does nothing to keep eye shadow lasting longer. As for the liner sealer, from what I can tell it literally does nothing except kind of irritate my eyes. You can seal your liner better with other products or even a good concealer that goes right underneath it . I'm giving it a 2 out of 5 because even though I dislike it, it does cover dark circles some what, but I have to apply it with a really soft brush...slowly...or with my finger. It's not even worth getting..even though it was only $1.50. I will not buy this again. However, I'm addicted to ELF's sheer eye primer.
Amazing primer. I work 9 hour shifts in a poorly air conditioned shop and have to do a lot of lifting. At the end of the day my eyeshadow looked freshly applied. Not sure why they call it liner SEALER- as someone pointed out, it's actually for transforming any color shadow into a liner, and it's great for that as well. I live ELF- dirt cheap, well packaged, great quality products. :)
This product is amazing!! I love using my eyeshadows for eyeliners with this product. This primer is really good too, no lines and creases. Great price too.
