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.

I am in love with this stuff! The best part is that it's only a dollar! I was very skeptic at how it would work considering the price. But I was amazed! The other primer I was using always creased two hours after applying it which was contradictory to the point I thought. This kind doesn't though! And it's great for when I want to wear my bright, cheap eyeshadows lol! I'm not thrilled with the tube though. It was fine for the first week or so. After that it started doing this thing where it would push some out when you closed it and some would come out around the ring where the applicator goes in. But, hey, it's only $1 so it's not like I'm crying over losing expensive product. I just finished one tube and it took me about 2 months and I only used it maybe twice a week. Overall, great product!

Something in the primer gave me an allergic reaction so if you have skin allergies I would definitely not buy this, because it's not hypoallergenic. Besides that, the primer doesn't even work that well. My eyeshadow had completely faded away after around 2 hours. I'm definitely not buying this again.

I bought this yesterday for my oily eyelids and used it for this first time this morning. I WAS IMPRESSED. I applied at 8 am, went to work til 3, and ran some errands, and guess what? My eyeshadow still looked good. Now I'll admit I never used primer up until 6 months ago and that was saphora brand. it was ok, i didn't like the texture. But this I like, it's ackward with the wand but I just did a few swipes on the lid and blended with my finger.

Honestly, this didn't work for me. I wasn't expecting much, but for the price of this primer I thought I would just give it a try anyway. It does have a creamy consistency and blends easily into my skin-tone, but for someone like me who has oily skin, it wasn't enough to stop my eyeshadow from creasing. I'll use it up to even out my eyelid colour, but won't repurchase.

Is this the best eyelid primer I've tried? No. Is this a good everyday substitute for my more expensive primers so I can save those for special occasions? Yes!

I have really oily eyelids, especially if I go with tinted moisturizer and a subtle eyeshadow that day. So a primer of some sort is almost a necessity for me. However, wearing UDPP every day is too much money for me. This is a good substitute, though it doesn't last nearly as long. If you're just starting out or can't afford UDPP, this is a good one for you.

I was just starting out in make-up a few months ago and found out that i need eyelid primer so it can last after doing some research i found out this product was a 1$ and at my local target..I did like how when it dries its powdery, makes eye shadows harder to mix..it does make it less pigmented..so instead i brought the E.L.F shimmering facial whip in pearl and it works great
