I've used eye shadow primers at Sephora that didn't even make it a few hours before creasing. This little $1.00 primer at Target lasted me just about a whole entire day. That's amazing. I will totally buy this again. I am curious to try the mineral one. I've heard it works even better.
For $1, I picked this up at my local target. My favorite primer is two faced's shadow insurance. I like the thin consistency and this works with my skin color a lot better than UDPP. I wanted to give ELF's a try since I have been into trying different brands. It's a thin light colored consistency. A lot thinner than TFSI. I gave it go and it worked very well. It's a little harder to blend into your skin because you can still see a light tint of color but since I was using shadows to cover it up, it wasn't a big deal to me. It comes packed like a lip gloss with a doe foot applicator which I use to dot on my lids and blend with my ring finger by patting it out. I also used it this under my lash line to prevent my waterline liner from transferring (this works for my skin tremendously) preventing raccoon eyes. But I noticed in pictures this does reflect light on my skin under my eyes so I definitely will not be using this primer for pictures or any big events. I don't like when my skin looks brighter than the rest of my skin under my eyes. If this is your thing, you might like this primer if you're my skin tone. It's a great every day primer when you don't want to use up your more expensive primers. I had no trouble packing color on or blending shadows out on top of this primer. I did use a thin layer. You get what you pay for but overall, it's not bad. I would repurchase and I recommend trying this out.
I love this product! It so cheap and works pretty well. I am on my second one and when this one runs out, ill use it again! :)
You know, I have never used a high end eyeshadow primer. In fact I have never used an eyeshadow primer that costs more than one measly dollar, and due to this amazing little gem of a product, I don't believe I ever will. This primer makes shadows blend very smoothly and easily and it makes them last, hours and hours, even though the night which I should not have been bad enough to find out, but was (I blame college). This primer does everything I could ever ask a primer to do and I will be loyal to it forever. I have repurchased it several times and will continue to do so. An everyday staple and HG product for me.
I feel like this works depending on what type of shadow you use it with, because when I wear it with my wnw shadow it faded soooo quick maybe after 3 hours it was so sheer. But when I used it with a smashbox eyeshadow it worked perftly fine. The color of it starts out kind of a light beige color, but then it doesn't completely absorb into my skin which leave a slight white cast nothing major but since it does that it make my shadow look a little faded, so I have to layer more shadow to make the color show up more true. So basically I feel like if you have a lot of high end shadow like urban decay, mac, too faced, smashbox, shadow that already have good staying power by themselves then this would probably be good and work perfectly fine, but if you have more low end shadows that don't have a good staying power already I would say pass on this. I do have a lot of drugstore shadows so this for me doesn't do a good job so I would not repurchase.
This was the first primer I had ever bought because I was getting very frustrated with creasing from eyeshadow and imprinting from eyeliner. For a buck, it was a good choice to relieve my high school student budget. Hah. And I definitely like that it's tinted - it's almost like a very sheer concealer so I use it under my eyes, and I find that is where it works best. I wear quite a bit of soft pencil kohl liner on my lower lashline, and I've that is where this primer works the best. It keeps that liner put, and, like I've said, provides a sheer bit of color for undereye circles. On the lid it doesn't work as well as on the bottom lashline, because I still have quite a bit of creasing even with using this product. And that's why I gave it -2 rating because that's the reason I bought it in the first place. However, I would buy it again because it works nicely as a sheer undereye concealer and it helps keep bottom eyeliner put. Bottom Line -it would be a good product for you if you didn't wear a whole lot of eyeshadow. if you only need a primer for eyeliner, this is a good option.
I absolutely love this product! It goes on sheer and actually smells really good! If you use this, your makeup goes on soooo much smoother! It makes a big difference! It makes your makeup last a lot longer too! Mine easily lasts for 12 hours when I use this product! For $1, its a must have!
Bought it hoping that I would find a cheaper version of the UDPP, but was sorely disappointed. Maybe it's because I have rather oily lids, but after 7-8 hours I would find my eyeshadows have faded quite a bit and the eyeliner has smudged on the bottom of my eye. Doesn't seem to make a difference as compared to without a primer. Probably just doesn't crease as much but I'm still in search of something that makes a substantial difference.
This is the first primer I have ever tried so I don't know how other primers work. But this works fine for its price. It dried quickly and kept my eyeliner in a longer time. It's very useful and easy to use. The thing I dislike is the wand which I had little problem to apply with it. I couldn't be sure how much the primer came out on it.
Not bad for a dollar. the elf Mineral Eyeshadow Primer is WAY better. But for a buck, keeps your shadow in place without creasing.
