ive bought this product three times and it never fails me. it keeps my eyeshadow in place for hours and hours and hours! i have very oliy skin/eye lids so at a price like this who can go wrong?!?
I have been using UDPP for many years now. My BFF got me into UDPP. Recent I kept seeing ELF primer on YouTube beauty guru channels. I was at the closest target that sells Elf so I decided to get it. $1. I'm not losing much if I end up hating it. But I don't hate it. It is easy to apply. Thin consistency. Has a doe foot type applicator (that occasionally feels like it's scratching my lid but whatever). It's plastic packaging and small. Hey, it's a buck. Cheaper than a package of gum. With my UDPP my lids would start to crease near end of work day (4 or 5 PM). With the ELF- no creasing. I have very oily skin & oily lids to boot. Idk if this helps my shadow colors pop but it certainly keeps the color on my lids & decreases my chances for creasing. I'll buy again. :) continued >>
I normally use Lorac behind the scenes eye primer, but when I ordered it I though, what the heck, I need a few extra dollars' worth of product, why not try this and compare it just for the fun of it. At first I thought it was working. But I don't know what happened. Maybe those were e/s' that don't need much primer anyway, or the weather changed, or my skin got used to it, but after a couple of disastrous mid-day looks of my e/s I stopped using it. My e/s' crease like crazy. I don't want to continue experimenting which ones do and which ones don't.
I love this primer.It works and blends well with my skin. I don't have any creasing. Plus it's so cheap for a great product. I have bought duplicates of this product just so I don't have that chance to run out. Not like they would but It's one of my favorite products out of my whole collection. If you are a beginner at makeup and want to know a great primer, this is an affordable, easily accessible, easy to use product.
This product is just perfect for me! I mean, you cannot beat the price. but also, I find the quality really good. it just makes my eyeshadow last all day and keeps their color vibrant and intense. I apply this in the morning and when I come back home at night my make up is still crease free. the color just helps making the lid all matte and neutral and helps bring out the tones of the eyeshadows I use on top. the packaging is good. I like primers in pots but they tend to dry out a lot quicker than this tube ones. I would only like the tube to be transparent to be able to see when the product is actually over. I will repurchase again and again, for sure. it just makes a great job for me and I don't see why I should buy more expensive products when I can have such good quality for this price.
The people describing the eyelid primer as being oily or glittery or even both are NOT using the 1$ primer (that says simplyelf eyelid primer) in sheer. That primer may feel a little silicone like at 1st but after a few seconds it dries down to a matte like texture that rids the slick feeling of just normal unprimed eyelids have. I do know that it will make your eyeshadow more vibrant but I can't say if it does a better or as well job as some other eyelid primers BUT I can say that it does make your freaking eyeshadow STAY PUT! In my 15 yrs of makeup wearing I have only started wearing shadow primers in the last maybe 2 years and I'm seriously sad I didn't find out how much better your shadow will stay with this primer than alone or just a concealer under it. I was a bridesmaid a few days ago and did a teal smokey eye and couldn't believe when I got home 10 hours later it looked as if I had just did my eye makeup which is alot for smokey eye that several colors blended together. The lighter was still in the inner and the darker still on the outside, no creasing or smudging. It even helps my eyelinerto stay put. I know for a FACT without that primer my shadow would of been a hot mess way before it was even time to walk down the aisle. Anyone who has had a problem make sure you try the the 1$ one in sheer, and that u give it a chance to dry before you put your shadow on. If it's just that u want to make it last (which for me is the most important) I can't see how u would be disappointed. If it's brighter color thats something u will have to judge for yourself.
Thank God for ELF and its incredible products at low prices. Seriously, 1 dollar for this primer?! Can't beat that! I've found that it may not last quite as long as the urban decay one, but it's SO much cheaper and works well enough, let's just say that. Plus it's much easier to remove than the UD primer. I will absolutely repurchase this!
Mine looks the same as the one in the picture, but the colour is white, not nude. The name is the same though.
Two words: glitter central! Not even shimmer, just plain huge chunks of glitter in this primer. And it leaves a white cast on my eyes, which I don't like and find aging. Not very easy to blend either.
Chucked it right to the bin and never buying again.
I do recommend the mineral eyeshadow primer from ELF though! That one is nude and matte and works great.
I looove this use it daily and is comparable to higher end primers plus only a dollar
I have to say, this eyelid primer works amazing for the price, and it's only a $1! It evens out your eyelid tone, and is great for making your eye shadows last. :) I wouldn't say it makes the eye shadow "pop", but is great for what its worth! :) I would definitely check it out!
