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
This product is simply AMAZING. It's basically exactly same as the Urban Decay Primer Potion, but for a tiny fraction of the price - at £1.50, I will most definitely be repurchasing. It does everything you need an eye shadow primer to do; my eye shadows stays on all day with no smudging, no creasing, and the colours stay vivid and vibrant. Excellent product, 10/10.
This is my everyday primer. I dont use it for going out or special occasions though (urban decay primer potion/mac paintpot) . I think its great! gets the job done and hey only $1. I do not recommend trying the other color primers though, in my opinion they suck. Since i really liked the original nude color i thought i would try the other colors, but they were a fail. Get the original boring looking one ;)
I am on my second tube of E.L.F. eye primer. It does help my eyeshadow color show up better and it does stay on all day. I put this on at 0500 and even now at 1820, over 13 hours later, my shadow still looks good and has no caking up or creasing and has not flaked off either. I even took a nap this afternoon and my shadow still stayed put. The color has faded some from the crease area but overall this really works great for the cost. I think I paid a couple of dollars and this is comparable to Smashbox and Urban Decay's eye primer. I still have some left of both of those and returned to using this little gem. I don't care much for the doe foot applicator it seems to apply too much, the solid colored tube doesn't allow you to see how much is left or when it gets low, and I would prefer a squeeze tube, but I buy this for the end result not the package. You can't beat the savings!
A great product for the eyes. I have found that it helps my eyeshadow last longer, and the pigment shows up waaaaaaaay more.
this is the only eyelid primer i've used and im pretty happy to stick with it. it's cheap and works perfectly.
Packaging and price is great ($1). However, the product itself could be better. I find it did not help at all with my oily lids and my eye makeup creased. Perhaps oily lid people should look elsewhere. I use the ELF studio eyelid primer and it works much better than this.
OMG this stuff is a steal!!!!!!!!!!
I picked this up a while back since my UDPP was out and got this to try out. Well I'm glad i did and I think UDPP might be history for me lol
This lil Elf primer is amazing!!!
*My shadow lasts all day and night with no creasing!
*It applies so smooth,soft & silky
*I tend to get oily lids but not at all with this primer I have zero issues.
*Tiny gripe is the tube is small and I have to repurchase often...but totally not a deal breaker!
This stuff is a MUST TRY!!!!! You have nothing to lose if it doesn't work for you lol its sooooooo worth trying for a $1
This stuff is awesome. I usually buy an extra tube and use that one just for my lips before applying liner/lipstick. And I love that u can pick it up at any target and not have to travel 'far' to pick it up. Works great!
This stuff is AMAZING! And it's only one friggen dollar!! You can't go wrong with that! Now, I don't think it's as good as the UDPP but if you aren't going out for a whole day or even (wedding, graduation, etc.) and you need something for a daily basis such as school or work, this will work great. It keeps my eyeshadow in place for about 6-7 hours which is more than enough for me. I also love how it somewhat conceals your eyelids so you have a nice blank canvas to work with. I love this stuff and I would repurchase over ad over again!
