I can't believe how great this is for $1! My lids are quite oily but if I put a thin layer of this on under eye makeup, it stays on for at least 8 hours. The only reason I did not give this a five is that it's hard to scrape all the product out of the container and I don't like to waste anything even when it's so cheap!
I love the prime, however there are better primers to still try out. It's been great for me it lasts long even with 5 to 7 hours of labor at work, my makeup is still intact, however maybe I piled the product over my face primer that gave it more effect. So, I'm still trying out more 'til I find my HG, but this one is good for those who are on budget or for beginners. =]
I think it's a trial and error product for everyone. All products aren't meant to be suited for everyone. I like this primer because it really does dries fast and keep my eye make-up fresh. The only thing I didn't like is the packaging. The wand isn't longer enough to scrap out the product on the bottom and from the sides.
I had to melt the product down a little like how you save lipglosses to get a little more product.
It's definitely a good primer, but I don't know if UDPP can be skipped because of this primer. I haven't try UDPP before because I simply can't afford it yet, so I can't judge if this primer is any better than UDPP.
I would say this is a good product to try or invest in if you are in a tight budget and wants an eyeshadow primer to prime your lids. This works well for oily-lids. I don't have extremely oily lids, but this primer keeps my eyeshadow vibrant.
I would definitely repurchase it because it is a good product for a student.
This product is not my favorite, on my darker complexion (nw45) it makes my shadows appear more faded, I have TFSI and mary kay eye primer and this is the lowest on the todem pole for me, it makes my shadows last a little more time but def not all day also the color on my complexion doesn't completely absorb into the skin it leaves a white cast which is why i guess it lightens up my shadows, but its just ok at best i wouldn't buy again
Im sorry to pop bubbles but this product isnt that grat. I guess the whole "you get what you pay for" It applies very easily and makes the color brighter, however it is NOT long lasting. While the colors don crease that much, they pretty much disapear after a couple of hours. I do not recommend this unles you have no money, otherwise , dont waste you time in this.
Love love LOVE this product! I've heard a lot of good things about Urban Decay Primer Potion, and I'd actually thought about buying it, but when I found this on the ELF website for $3. I thought "What the heck?" This works AMAZING! Never thought something this cheap would work so well! I use the ELF Brightening Eye Color eyeshadow quads a lot, and they lasted up to 8 hours with no creasing for me! Definently recommand this to everyone wanting to get good eyeshadow primer without emptying your wallet like UDPP or any other department store primers.
It's actually my first time to ever use a primer. Since I'm still on the "testing ground", I went for the cheapest---which is an eye primer.
I bought one from E.L.F. as the face primer had fab reviews.
I am very pleasantly surprised that it has worked for me! My eye makeup did stay on throughout the day :)
However, I just gave it 4 lippies as it did not help in making my Nars cream shadow/liner stay on longer :( Maybe it's the Nars shadow who's the problem here. But if this primer helped it stay on, I would give it a 5!
Yes, I would recommend it to friends. It serves its purpose and its very affordable :)
Honestly, I have only tried a few primers. I usually don't wear eyeshadow, so I never usually bother buying primers. But, I felt the need to check this one out.
I can't tell you if it creased for me or not, because I forgot to check (I'll update this when I use it next), but I noticed it does make eyeshadows much more vibrant and gorgeous. The eyeshadow didn't budge at all. It gets a tick of approval from me :)
I like this more than udpp for eyeshadow but this doesn't help my eyeliner. This primer is good but I wish it can last longer and not fade as much!
I got this on eyeslipsface.com for only $1 or $3. You seriously can't go wrong with that! I know ELF cosmetics are available at Target stores, but I have never seen this particular item there. I do see the normal eyeshadow primer .. but not the mineral one. And if you do get this, I'd suggest you wait until ELF has some kind of a coupon or deal (which they always do! :)
The packaging is ... okay. It comes with a dome foot applicator. But I wish it was a sqeeze tube instead .. Just so I can get out all the product and it would be more sanitary. But for the price, I can't really complain. But overall, I LOVE THIS PRIMER!! I apply makeup around 8am each day and I'll remove it around 2am that night .. and my eyeshadow is still visible and hasn't smudged off. I also take naps throughout the day and my eyeshadow doesn't come off after I wake up either. And I do notice my eyeshadow looking more intense and pigmented compared to not using the primer at all. I seriously love this primer sooo much and will be repurchasing this over and over again!
