I really like this! With the E.L.F. products you never really know how good the quality is going to be, but this primer lives up to what it promises. It is very easy to apply (you just need a small amount), and my eye color does not crease or fade. I have oily lids but this primer keeps everything fresh and in place for a good eight hours. Because this product is so cheap, I would strongly suggest you ladies give it a try before spending more money on the other well known primers.
I wouldn't buy this product again - even for the dollar price - because it simply didn't do anything.
Overall, I think this is a O.K. primer, but overall it's just not that great. Why? When I put on eyeshadow (of course, AFTER I put on the primer), it stays on fairly well enough, but throughout the day the eyeshadow starts fading, of course this primer is better than nothing.
Other than that, ever since I've experienced their other primer which is the E.L.F. Eye Primer & Liner Sealer, I fell in love with it! It's a long-like tube that's half/half, meaning half of it is the eye primer, and half of it is the liner sealer. I LOVE the eye primer, it looks like a lipstick, and you can just easily glide it on your eyes and it LITERALLY holds your eyeshadow ALL day, it works just like a professional! This E.L.F. Eye Primer & Liner Sealer is only $3 bucks - purchased from Target. So I would HIGHLY recommend you to spend an extra $2 for a 100% better eye primer!
Not bad for the price. It usually starts creasing on me after 5 hours. I was about to give it a lower rating, but after having tried the Essence Love The Stage, the E.L.F. version looks like a miracle product, and still cheaper.
Greatttt stuff for an amazing price! I love ELF products... I wish my Target carried the whole line. This product reminds me of Urban Decay's potion primer, but a less concentrated version. For the price, I really can't complain. The stay on power is pretty good, and I can't notice a difference so far from this eye lid primer and other expensive versions. Save your money and buy this!
This eyelid primer is perfect for it's price and I'm very happy with it. I've never really used any other primers so I don't know how it compares but I really don't feel the need to try anything else out as this is so cheap and it works for me.
I picked up this product in the shade "Sheer" for $1.00.
Great colour options
The reason I bought this is because I wanted a nice eye primer, but I did not want to pay $20-30 (Urban Decay Primer Potion, Too Faced Shadow Insurance, etc.) for something under the shadow. The packaging is nice, not too cheap. I was pleasently suprised at how many shades there were, ranging from sheer to gold to tinted. The formula is quite oily, but does the job a primer is meant to do. Overall, a great buy for a makeup guru on a budget!
As far as eyelid oiliness goes, mine are pretty average. Dry in the winter, a little oily in the summer. So I don't need a super heavy duty primer, and this works just fine for me. When I wear this, my eyeshadows do not crease, ever. The consistency also works well under the eyes to help your concealer stay in place, so that's a great bonus. However, when it comes to making your eyeshadows super vibrant, this is just not going to be as good as, say, Too Faced Shadow Insurance, or Urban Decay Primer Potion. It's a dollar, what do ya expect? It does make your eyeshadows a little brighter than they'd be on their own, but the texture of this isn't sticky enough to really grab the pigment and make it pop.
So is it worth it to pick this up? Sure, if your expectations are realistic. For me, it gives me long lasting, easy to blend, creaseless eyeshadow. But glitter doesn't stick to it very well, and if I wanted to wear a bright matte yellow for example, I'd reach for something else. The applicator and thin consistency makes this quick and easy to apply and blend though, so I reach for this on a lot of days over pricier primers.
I really don't have the money to afford UD primer, so I bought this, and it's not too bad. The only gripe I have is that when I use it I feel like I dont get enough product on my eye from just one swipe. I have to go in twice to get product. Other than that, not too bad.
I love this stuff!! This works great for keeping my eye shadow on ALL day long. I've used UDPP and this works just as good. I have oily skin and lids and have no problems with this keeping my shadow on all day or creasing. I use this every day and stock up on this now and just loving it especially for the price. Only $1.00 :)))))
