In my opinion, this product is definitely worth purchasing considering its price, amount, and overall quality. I actually prefer this product to Paladio's primer. I find it works best if a cream shadow is applied over it before the shadow. I think its lasting power is awesome! One of my favorite E.L.F. products

It really didn't help much. My shadows stayed on for about 2 hours before creasing and/or fading. Such watery consistency and not very creamy.

This is not the best eyelid primer in the world, nor is it the worst (in my opinion). However, for a $1, it is a pretty decent product nonetheless. And, whether you are new to makeup or not, it is worth trying at least once.

E.L.F. is known for always having lots of sales. So, I will probably end up buying more of this stuff just for the fun of it!

So everyone knows that this is cheap. Given that, this is a pretty great primer for those of us who don't want to spend $22 on UDPP. Since I am quite new at makeup, I don't really see the point in buying an expensive primer. This however works nicely and it makes a huge difference on how eyeshadows apply. Before, I used to simply pack on eyeshadows onto my bare lids and would wonder why they would crease, or why they would just not stay put for more than 20 minutes. I blamed the quality of the eyeshadows first, then I bought some Urban Decay shadows and while the colors are more vibrant, the lasting power was just as bad as the cheaper ones. Then one day I pulled out this, I had bought this awhile ago and never really used it since I never thought it would make any difference. Well I was pleasantly wrong :). The eyeshadows just latched onto my eye lids. I didn't even have to pack on a whole lot for them to look vibrant and they lasted a good 4 hours without creasing, which is saying a lot for something worth a dollar. Don't expect this to live up to high end primers because it simply won't, but if you want something cheap that actually works try this! It will make a difference!

I was a UDPP user and switched to TFSI... for no apparent reason really, I just wanted to try TFSI.

Anyway, TFSI is not the cheapest so I decided to buy this primer because 1) it has awesome reviews
2) its cheap!

I have to say it DOES NOT disappoint!
Very impressive for the price.
I use it everyday for work and just use TFSI for special occassions :)

Will repurchase again and again!

Very impressed with this product. I have been using UDPP, and not too impressed. Bought this one day, and LOVE how the e/s just pops, and stays put on my oily eyelids. even still looks good after a 12 hour shift overnight in the hospital. Will def repurchase!!

I purchased this from the elf website, along with a bunch of other items, and recieved the package a few days ago. And since then, I have tried the primer once or twice, and so far it seems to work VERY well :D

I figured it wouldn't be that great, it would only last for maybe half as long as my TooFaced Shadow Insurance, if that, since it was only a dollar... But I was VERY wrong about that! I put it on around 10:00 AM, and after going to the park with a few friends (in the Texas heat, not to mention my incredibly oily eyelids... :3) it lasted, crease free until around probably around 9:00 that evening? Somewhere around that time..

But this primer is AMAZING!!! :D

The only thing I don't particularly care for is the packaging, its a sort of clumsy feeling tube, and hard to get out all of the product, but whatever though, its just a dollar:DDDD

I love this product! Nothing beats the $1 price tag! I've used TFSI & UDDP and of course this doesnt hold up as long as those high end primers do, but it still does give an awesome bang for your buck! I loved that this primer was nice and light which unlike the others mentioned aboved were pretty heavy and left my eyes feeling tight,dry and rubbery.

Overall for everyday use, I highly recommend this!

This is the first primer I've used, but I needed one and since this was such a steal, I thought I'd try it. And it actually works quite well. It keeps my oily lids from, well, being oily. It also makes my eyeshadow stay with only just a tiny, tiny bit of creasing by the end of the day. My only problem with it is that it makes my eyeshadow less vibrant, but not in a noticeable way really.
