At 9pm, after a 45min walk in 80degree heat and bike riding with my 3 year old, my eye shadow was still perfect. Amazing!

Honestly, I would much rather use this than the UDPP because of the price difference. I use this every day and I don't have a problem with it, however I do not recommend using this with any really dramatic smoky colors or else you will notice it does crease a little. But overall, it's worth buying! Only $1:)

This stuff is simply amazing. I use it in the morning under my Urban Decay eyeshadow, and by 6 that night, it is still on! This is by far the best eyelid primer I have ever used. It beats Urban Decay, Smashbox, and multiple other high end brands. If you are looking for a great primer, don't spend $30 on one, spend like $2 and get a better quality one. Just because it is cheap, doesn't mean it is not good. The KMart I get mine from is usually always sold out, so I usually have to travel around to find it. Give this product a try, you won't be let down.

I cannot stress how much I love this product. I've repurchased this several times and will continue to do so. Being a college student I'm not looking to buy a $20 bottle of eyeshadow primer so the fact that this is just $1 is fantastic. The product itself its great and allows my eyeshadow to last all day. It is light weight and does provide very minimal coverage to my eyelids, which is exactly what I'm looking for. The packaging isn't the most glamorous but for being so cheap I think it looks fine. :)

This an amazing primer. Keeps my eye shadows opaque and crease free all day long. The color blends in and makes my few eye veins less noticable. You cannot beat the one dollar price tag. While i want to try other eye primers I will keep repurchasing this for the consistantly good results.

Another product which will firmly remain in my make up bag for the rest of time!
For someone with fairly oily skin and eye makeup that always seems to crease regardless of how it is applied I had enough and decided to look for a decent eye primer.
Luckily, I didn't shell out on the Urban Decay Primer Potion or the Nars eye primer as I just couldn't justify spending around £20 on something that I wasn't even sure I needed. So I thought why not try out some drugstore primers hense why I came across the ELF one. Here in the UK we can only purchase ELF online as I know in America this product is only $1 which to me is insane considering that it is only something like 75 pence over here. I found the primer on eBay and bought it for about £4 and have never looked back...

PRO's:
- Will even keep cream eyeshadows in place on my oily lids till evening time
- The price is amazing for such a good product and formula
- The finish is sheer,blendable and matte creating a great base for any type of eye makeup
- I like to apply this (I know this may seem weird but it works) on a blemish before applying concealer as it makes the concealer last longer throughout the day


CONS:
- The product is in a fairly small tube so after about 3 months, a repurchase would have to be made
- Although the staying power is amazing with no creasing, my shadow starts to fade around 6 hours after appplication

Hope I helped all the primer newbies like me out there, All The Best - Brit xxx

This product is simply AMAZING. It's basically exactly same as the Urban Decay Primer Potion, but for a tiny fraction of the price - at £1.50, I will most definitely be repurchasing. It does everything you need an eye shadow primer to do; my eye shadows stays on all day with no smudging, no creasing, and the colours stay vivid and vibrant. Excellent product, 10/10.

This is my everyday primer. I dont use it for going out or special occasions though (urban decay primer potion/mac paintpot) . I think its great! gets the job done and hey only $1. I do not recommend trying the other color primers though, in my opinion they suck. Since i really liked the original nude color i thought i would try the other colors, but they were a fail. Get the original boring looking one ;)

I am on my second tube of E.L.F. eye primer. It does help my eyeshadow color show up better and it does stay on all day. I put this on at 0500 and even now at 1820, over 13 hours later, my shadow still looks good and has no caking up or creasing and has not flaked off either. I even took a nap this afternoon and my shadow still stayed put. The color has faded some from the crease area but overall this really works great for the cost. I think I paid a couple of dollars and this is comparable to Smashbox and Urban Decay's eye primer. I still have some left of both of those and returned to using this little gem. I don't care much for the doe foot applicator it seems to apply too much, the solid colored tube doesn't allow you to see how much is left or when it gets low, and I would prefer a squeeze tube, but I buy this for the end result not the package. You can't beat the savings!

A great product for the eyes. I have found that it helps my eyeshadow last longer, and the pigment shows up waaaaaaaay more.
