I've been using this for about 2yrs and I don't see myself using another primer anytime soon. I used UDPP before I tried this and it made my lids dry and red, this product works like a charm. No irritation, and my eyeshadow stays put! I don't have a problem with creasing or anything. For $1. everyone should at least try this primer. I prefer it over UDPP and TFSI.

This is amazing! ONE DOLLAR! And it works better than any other eyelid primer I've tried. I have to use my finger to apply, since the applicator is basically pointless. It goes on matte and dries quickly. Haven't had any problems with creasing since I've been using this, which has been over a year now. Also, it's only ONE DOLLAR! Even if you don't like it, you won't be out much money. Try it!

Can't beat it for the $1.00 I spent on it. Tried it for the first time and I was so impressed how much better my eye shadow went on and how it stayed vibrant and crease free all day. It goes on kind of slick, but once it dries it feels silky and brightens up the lids. There could be better eye primers out there, for significantly more $$. I rated this a 5 star because it works well and it was dirt cheap!

This was the first time for me trying an eyelid primer the reason being I truly have no problem with my eyeshadow staying put for an entire day and evening. I picked this up just for "fun." Well, all I can tell you is that this primer made my almost 55 year old eyelids feel and look like silk. It looked somewhat of a peach shade when I applied it to my lids but once blended out it had no color. All you need is a little dab on each eyelid.... it blends out effortlessly... feels silky to the touch and dries in no time. My eye shadow just glided on beautifully. I have no doubt that this primer keeps your eye shadow in place all day but like I said before my eyeshadow always stays put so it's hard for me to say 100% but trust me, I'm sure it works. I do not detect any fragrance at all. I picked it up in Target (of course) for one dollar. I just can't get over how great most of the ELF products are. If you're in need of a primer and want one that works give this one a try and if you're older like me and want younger looking and smoother looking eyelids you need to give this a try as well.

I have this eyelid primer in white. This product works great, I skipped a day without it and my makeup creases everytime without it. I love it. The only down side of this product is it has tiny glitter in it. But, I don't mind it at all. I will be buying this product again.

Packaging: holds up boring and nothing special appearance wise.
Color: for me it kind of just purified my eyelids so I use it even if I'm not wearing shadow
Lasting power: helps eyeshadow to not crease and last a lot longer than shadow alone.
Price: I got it at target for $1. I think that the price is great for the product.

It did a good job but it smells very bad. Sadly won't repurchase.

Was very impressed with this! I have tried Smashbox, L'oreal, and Laura Mercier eye primers and none of those have prevented creasing. This one did, and it's only $1.

First off, it worked well the first few days but then it started drying out my lids!!!! I don't know maybe I had an allergy reaction or something. Although sometimes it works very well

-eye shadow lasts for a very long times (trust me it does I had it for new years all day long even till the next day!)
- I can use it as a concealer for my under eyes since i am a medium skintone

-dried out my lids :(
