*Editing my previous review: After giving this another chance, this does work about the same as Urban Decay. I had been using UB's primer in the cream version from the squeeze tube (love that one) and I thought I ordered that one again. I received the vintage one instead which applies the same was as ELF, with a wand....this is liquid. This version works the same as UB! I would probably repurchase it again, but I still love the cream version of UB since it helps with covering up tired looking eyelids and under eye circles.*
I really really wanted to like this primer since I am paying a lot more for Urban Decay, but unfortunately I don't. I gave this a chance to work, but it did nothing to prolong my shadow and liner on my oily eyelids..I am sticking with UD. I'm happy this product helps a lot of people since it's so inexpensive.
What! I cant believe this stuff is only $1!!! I love it : D Does exactly what you need it to do. Wooo!! If ELF ever changes/discontinues this I will flip tables!
I really love this product!
It is only $1!! And it works great!
I use this product before i put on my eyeshadow everyday and my eyeshadow lasts all day long, whether it is MAC or drugstore!
It is very light and has a very smooth consistency.
It is easy to apply and blend into eyelid.
I would definitely compare this product to Urban Decay's Primer Potion.
My only con is that i wish it came in a larger amount. But at only a dollar, its not a big deal to buy multiple!
Its simple....this really works. Its past 100 degrees fahrenheit where i live and my shadows don't crease when i'm wearing this. Layering this on helps too. For the price and how well it works its a total bargain. highly recommend. I don't get how anyone wouldn't like it. i don't have oily lids but in the hot summer i do and this holds up. Even if you end up not liking it the price is nothing to lament over because you don't lose much. If you haven't tried this go buy it.
At 9pm, after a 45min walk in 80degree heat and bike riding with my 3 year old, my eye shadow was still perfect. Amazing!
Honestly, I would much rather use this than the UDPP because of the price difference. I use this every day and I don't have a problem with it, however I do not recommend using this with any really dramatic smoky colors or else you will notice it does crease a little. But overall, it's worth buying! Only $1:)
This stuff is simply amazing. I use it in the morning under my Urban Decay eyeshadow, and by 6 that night, it is still on! This is by far the best eyelid primer I have ever used. It beats Urban Decay, Smashbox, and multiple other high end brands. If you are looking for a great primer, don't spend $30 on one, spend like $2 and get a better quality one. Just because it is cheap, doesn't mean it is not good. The KMart I get mine from is usually always sold out, so I usually have to travel around to find it. Give this product a try, you won't be let down.
I cannot stress how much I love this product. I've repurchased this several times and will continue to do so. Being a college student I'm not looking to buy a $20 bottle of eyeshadow primer so the fact that this is just $1 is fantastic. The product itself its great and allows my eyeshadow to last all day. It is light weight and does provide very minimal coverage to my eyelids, which is exactly what I'm looking for. The packaging isn't the most glamorous but for being so cheap I think it looks fine. :)
This an amazing primer. Keeps my eye shadows opaque and crease free all day long. The color blends in and makes my few eye veins less noticable. You cannot beat the one dollar price tag. While i want to try other eye primers I will keep repurchasing this for the consistantly good results.
Another product which will firmly remain in my make up bag for the rest of time!
For someone with fairly oily skin and eye makeup that always seems to crease regardless of how it is applied I had enough and decided to look for a decent eye primer.
Luckily, I didn't shell out on the Urban Decay Primer Potion or the Nars eye primer as I just couldn't justify spending around £20 on something that I wasn't even sure I needed. So I thought why not try out some drugstore primers hense why I came across the ELF one. Here in the UK we can only purchase ELF online as I know in America this product is only $1 which to me is insane considering that it is only something like 75 pence over here. I found the primer on eBay and bought it for about £4 and have never looked back...
- Will even keep cream eyeshadows in place on my oily lids till evening time
- The price is amazing for such a good product and formula
- The finish is sheer,blendable and matte creating a great base for any type of eye makeup
- I like to apply this (I know this may seem weird but it works) on a blemish before applying concealer as it makes the concealer last longer throughout the day
- The product is in a fairly small tube so after about 3 months, a repurchase would have to be made
- Although the staying power is amazing with no creasing, my shadow starts to fade around 6 hours after appplication
Hope I helped all the primer newbies like me out there, All The Best - Brit xxx
