I recently purchased this for $1 at my local Target store as I noticed I was running low on my beloved UDPP & have been on the hunt for more inexpensive options.
After reading some hopeful reviews here I had semi- high hopes but for me personally, this product is a dud :(
For someone with "Normal" to "dry" eye lids it may seem like a decent eye primer, & it does make a nice base. But upon my 1st application, I noticed it dried nicely, and it helped make my e/s pop, then after 1-2 hrs it was like I hadn't even applied any primer at all & I had an oily, creasy mess going on :-/
Not sure yet if I'm going to give it a go as a lip primer or pass it along to my mother (she has dry skin so it may work for her, she's also not very picky about her m/u ;D) But even though this is only $1, it's still something I'll never repurchase & I'm wishing I had that $1 back Lol
Overall I would not recommend this original eye primer to anyone with extremely oily lids (like myself) but I do look forward to trying the "Mineral Eyeshadow Primer" from ELF's line as I've read it's a bit better than this version..

This is my every day primer. I use this every day, usually just under eyeliner. I have extremely oily lids and this extra step is necessary to help even waterproof eyeliners stay better on my lids. For eyeshadow, it is good as well. For the price, you really cannot complain. If you want more vibrant eyeshadow, definitely go with UDPP. But this ELF primer does ~8/10 of the same job for 1/20 of the price. Definitely a staple in my everyday makeup.

Wow. This was only one dollar. And it WORKS. I have never tried an eye primer before so I decided to buy something cheap. I have nothing else to compare this to, but I can definitely tell a difference in how long my eyeshadow/liner lasts. It even saves me more money since I don't have to reapply my eye makeup. THANK YOU MUA!!

I liked this primer because it works. I have a lot of problems with eye makeup running/smudging/creasing. It was a little glittery for my taste, not shimmery like I'd prefer. I also have to blend it right after applying it because it'll dry quickly and then flake otherwise.
Edit Jan. 5, 2012: I threw it out. I disliked the glitter too much to be able to appreciate its mediocre effects. I've just been using that Maybelline Age Rewind stuff and putting it on my eyes, too. No problems yet (and no glitter!)

I've worked as a model and had diffferent lid primers used on me, and this one works as well as any of the high end ones.
For the price, the staying powder (I have oily lids), and that it's non tested on animals I will forever use this product.

For only a buck you aren't going to expect urban decay primer quality but shockingly this holds pretty well. With my mac eyeshadows it lasts about 4 hours but with e.l.f eyeshadows or other cheaper eyeshadows it does not hold. Personally I think mac eyeshadows last a couple hours on their own anyways so I don't usually use a primer with them anyway. Good primer but a little greasy. For a buck.. sure why not! I'd buy again (:

Very please with this E.L.F. Product. I'm sure that there are alot better eye primers out there however at 20 times the price. It works very well for only one dollar. If you are looking for a miracle eyelid primer then you may want to spend a little more money. But for the price this is very worth it.

Great product. Will most definitely buy again. It's very liquidy so I just dab a titch on each lid and blend upward. My e/s lasts all day no kidding! I also pat a bit under my eyes where I put some e/s for my liner and that too lasts even in the hot, humid summer!! Can't be beat and the price...oh my...one dollar...in this day and age that's unheard of....try it...you won't be disappointed.

I can't believe I've forgotten to review this, since I have already repurchased a few times! I absolutely love it! Goes on very light, not sticky, and it keeps the colors true all day. What more could you ask for? At $1 you have nothing to lose and I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised. It has replaced my UDPP and my Lancome as my every day primer. I also tested a swatch on my hand of all of them, and the colors stay much more like "in the pan" shades with ELF.

PRICE: This product is dirt cheap! I honestly thought that no eyelid primer could live up to the $22 UDPP but.....IT DID! I live in Canada, so when ever we go over the boarder, I will be stocking up on this product!
PACKAGING: the primers packing isn't too extravagant, but it does the job. Also I find there isn't a lot of product inside the tube, but considering it is only $1 it doesn't bother me at all!
OVERALL: If you can't tell already, I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!! I will never be wasting my money on UDPP again, therefore, I will be able to buy more makeup :D this is amazing, and for a dollar, why not try it! Thumbs up to ELF! :)
