Updating my review (from 2 to 4 lippies) because I've used it a few more times and haven't had further problems with creasing. At this point, I probably would buy it again although I want to try the Fergie one since I've heard that's good for oily lids.

Original review: Didn't work for me. My eyeshadow creased. I usually use the Urban Decay primer but am traveling and forgot it, so I picked this up at Target. I wished it had worked since the price is amazing. I do have oily eyelids, so for someone with less oily lids, it may work well.

My lids can get quite oily sometimes, so I wasn't convinced this cheap primer would do it, but hey, what a pleasant surprise! Already repurchased.

Pros:
+ no creasing for over 8 hours
+ makes eyelid nice and smooth
+ covers veins and evens out the color of the lid
+ price
+ nice and clean packaging

Cons:
- doesn't make colors any more vibrant
- after about 9+ hours eyeshadow may start creasing or fading
- if your lids are very oily, this may not work at all

This does not work for me...i mean at first it is ok..but after about 1 month or so, i think it is not creamy anymore. When i put it on my lids it is hard to blend....so i dont know if it's just for my eyelids, i have super oily eyelids.
Many said it is a dupe for the urban decay prime portion, i would say NO.
But it's only a dollar...so it's worth trying still

This is pretty standard eye primer. I don't have oily eyelids so I don't really can tell if this product really work for me. Without this my eyeshades just stick and blend as usual. But it is affordable product.

I have repurchased this product several times. Its about a dollar and for a dollar it holds my eye shadow amazingly. It doesn't crease and I have oily eyelids. The color is Sheer but I don't think that is accurate. It covers all the veins and discoloration on my eyelids so it does have pigmentation. The only down side is the packaging. It comes with a doe foot applicator and you don't get all the product out. What I do is take out the clear "stopper" and continue to use it like that. With that method I'm able to get majority of the product. I will continue to repurchase and recommend this eye shadow primer. LOVED IT!

This primer is awesome and really makes your eyeshadow stay on all day. I was shocked to see that after fourteen hours, my eyeshadow had barely creased. This is not cakey, either, like some eye primers. For the price, you really cannot beat it.

amazing quality for it's price, what I didn't like is how the color of the primer is sheer on the lid. Which can make the lid appear puffy

This is my first and only eye primer. I never could afford the primer potion by Urban Decay or that Fergie primer from Wet N Wild. So I decided to try this one. It was my first item I ever bought from E.L.F. (the start of a never-ending stream of purchases).
I really like this primer. The packaging is small, fits everywhere. I don't think it's the most hygienic applicator, but easy to use.
The product itself is a nude colored liquid. The consistency is smooth, it spreads easily. Though it's sheer, it covers up veins and discoloration on the eyelid really well. It creates a great base for eyeshadows. Really makes the colors pop and stops them from smudging throughout the day. And the longevity of my eye make-up increased by about 3 hours.
This only costs $3, so it's definitely worth trying!

ok lets just say i didnt have high expectations for this little gem but it was only $1 so i was like why not.
anyway i love it...eyeshadow stayed on all day without creasing or fading...only problem i had with this is a little bumpy dot of this dried and when i applyed my eyeshadow it highlighted that dot so i recommend making sure u smooth it all out real quick before it dries lol....its got a very thick texture and dries fast...but thats my only problem so i would reccomend to a friend
