I didn't really notice any difference with this. I have it in sheer, and contrary to the name, it does have a fair amount of pigment to it, which is nice if you are using sheer eyeshadow. It has a bit of a sheen to it, and when it dries you will notice the slightly "tacky" feeling (as to hold the eyeshadow). It has pretty good hold, but I still notice creasing when I wear it. It's not really good or bad for me, just a neutral product.

I have been using this for a long time (original form.) I did purchase the other colors and they aren't near as good as the original. This primer is only $1...why do you need to buy UD or TF when this works just fine? I have super oily skin (including eyelids) and this primer lasts all day with no problems. I don't think it "enhances" my e/s by any means..it only adds to the longevity of it.The packaging could be better--bet hey..it's only a buck.

-does the job
-other brands may be better
Overall, I love this primer. It's cheap. It does the job. What more do you want?
However, I've done research that shows that the Palladio Herbal Eyelid Primer is better than this product.

I got this based on how many people love it on this website. I got the white(thin oily white with glitter) and the nude (oily thin beige color) I swatched this on may hand and the texture alone freaked me out that it was so oily that I was afraid to use my mac eyeshadow over this for fear of applying my brush over this oily substance to my eyeshadow pot repeatedly would transfer some of the oily product to my eyeshadow pot which could ruin it (mac eyeshadow textures will change if they are mixed with water or oil). Anywho I feel like people want to dupe everything... just because its an eyeshadow primer doesn't mean its "just like UDPP" and if you have never tried UDPP then how are you at liberty to compare the two?
I swatched this on my hand along with UDPP also to compare the two I put eyeshadow over it (romp by mac if you were wondering). It was very obvious the ELF primer did little in terms or enhancing the color and because of the oily texture of the primer the color just looked muddy and washed out. I tried it on my eyes and the same thing happened it looked lighter on some parts and darker on other parts very splotchy and cheap looking. While the swatch over the Urban Decay potion was vibrant, loud, smooth, even, honestly it just make your eyeshadow, whatever your wearing look flawless and high end.
This product makes me want to buy several backups for my UDPP. I would recomend buying the UDPP its worth the money and makes your makeup look amazing.
Im sorry I bought these primer they are gong in the garbage
From now on I might stick with just the elf brushes because the actual makeup products are just not up to par with h/e alternative, yes h/e makeup is good its worth the money and 90% of the time better than drugstore makeup, I'm sorry to say its true...

Helps eyeliner last most of the day
I can see all the way into the bottom of the tube...where is all the product? The way that the primer is fully covered up the sides of the tube you would think its filled to the top
Dries white...not sheer. Worse for darker complexions
Wouldn't buy again. I bought it as a first try

This is awful. For the first few days it worked fine, but then it actually started to make my eyelids oily and my eye shadow crease like crazy, which has never been a problem before. I don't recommend this, spend the extra 19$ on Urban Decay's primer potion, it's the only one that truly works for me.

So amazing, just like UDPP. I have this one in sheer. It lasts all day without creasing and gives shadows vibrancy. Such a good deal for $1!

makes my eyeshadow go on smooth and prevents creasing
its a great consistency not too thick not too thin
but you have to work with it fast because it does seem to dry pretty quickly
for a buck you cant go wrong if you cant afford UDPP try this youll love it!

Works great if you apply 2 coats! One coat seems to crease throughout the day. It also works good if you apply it where your smiles are before foundation to prevent creasing there!

I guess this is good for its price, but I don't like how difficult it is to blend in. It dries far too quickly & there were times I had splotches of it dried on my eyelids. Otherwise, good for its value - it does a good job in helping eyeshadow stay but not so much for eyeliner.
