I've heard very good reviews on this primer and I have to agree with whoever said it. This primer lasts for hours (and I have fairly oily lids). It is sheer and doesn't have a smell. It's easy to apply and the packaging is nice. You don't need to apply a great amount for it to works fine; I apply only a little bit and it still makes my eyeshadow lasts for about 5-6 hours until it starts fading a little.
For only being $1 this primer works great. It does keep eyeshadow from creasing and I've found it makes my eyeshadow last just as long as UDPP, the drawback is in the intensity of the eyeshadow. If you're doing a nude look this works great, but if you're looking to have the colours pop at all this simply won't do it. I've found that my eyeshadow actually looks less vibrant with this on than without it. It is a bit thin and oily but nothing terrible. Really the vibrancy is my only complaint. Defiantly worth the price.
This is not the best eye primer I've ever used, but for the price it's not too bad. It does successfully prevent eyeshadow from creasing, but it doesn't make your eyeshadow pop whatsoever. In fact, I feel like it makes the colors less intense. It works in a pinch for natural looks, but if I want my eyeshadow to stay true to color (or be more intense), I'd rather use UDPP in original or Eden. It's honestly not bad for a dollar, however. I use it to even out my eyelids on days when I don't wear eyeshadow. This sounds strange, but I actually like using it under my eyes. It helps prevent my under eye concealer from creasing. I will repurchase to use as a under eyelid primer (lol), but I would not repurchase this as an actual eyelid primer.
This is great makes any eye shadow I put on really last a long time and for a $1 woohoo
Thin. Watery. Wet. Takes too long to dry. Eyeshadow fades away to nothing, quickly. Creases. Yuck.
I actually bought this twice, though. First one, I bought it and used it a few times, threw it away. Then when I saw good reviews for it, I thought maybe I had just gotten a bad one. Nope, it's the same.
I get somewhat oily eyelids but this definately helps keep my eyeshadow bold and stay on longer. I even use this under my eyes and gives them a little highlight(:! You have nothing to lose since its just 1$ so give it a try (:
I just came back from a night of about four hours of dancing and sweating and having fun, and my eyeshadow is still in place! It didn't fade or crease; the edges softened just a tad, but it still looks great. And it held a smokey eye using shadow from ELF's line, so I barely had to spend anything for a totally perfect makeup night. YAY! I don't know how it works for double digit hours, but I never wear eyeshadow for that long so for me this is perfect.
At first, I was pretty excited to buy this b/c it was so cheap and had good reviews.
One day, I decided to give it a try. From the morning until after school, I noticed that my eye makeup still smudged ): I wasn't sure whether I rubbed my eyes during the day, but I'm pretty sure I wasn't.
It's an alright product, I guess. It's also my first primer.
For $1, it's okay. But I really don't notice the difference between this product and using no primer at all.
First elf product I have ever tried and I love it! It works so well. I have always had the eyeshadow crease and wondered how to get rid of it. First I considered the urban decay brand but didnt want to spend so much money for the first time. I heard about the elf cosmetics and checked it out. I LOVE THEIR PRODUCTS!! The primer works great but only has coverage for about 6-8 hours. Great for a night out with the girls
For a dollar this is an awesome product. I use it everyday and it stays on without creasing all day for me (even for my 14-hour days). It's also easy to apply and a little bit goes a long way.
I would say that the only downside to this primer is its packaging. After a while, some primer gets stuck on the insides of the tube and it gets difficult to try to reach for it.
