For $1 its better than nothing! I would rather spend a $1 and wear this under my eyeshadow than spend $22 on UDPP for everyday wear. I have even tried a $25 primer than worked worse than this. ELF primer lasted on my lids for 6 hours without heavy activity. I did wear it to a long outdoor hike and It lasted maybe 4 hours. This is a good everyday primer good for someone who does not want to waste UDPP on regular days. I would not use this for special occasion, because the product is medicore and it quits working halfway through the day. Its like using a cheap powder versus a nice luxury finely milled powder.

First It was a dollar at target so I was not expecting HG status. It works ok I usually use it when I am wearing a light wash of color on my lid or just to encourge my eye liner to stay on on days that I am working, other wise I am still sticking with my Urban Decay. Probably won't buy again

WOW! This is my 1st eyelid primer. I've never used UDPP or TFSI! I am also a MONOLID asian so I've never really had problems with creasing when it comes to my eyes in general. I have super duper oily skin and watery allergy eyes. I bought this to specifically keep my brows, eyeshadows and liner from running down my eye bags and cheeks throughout a 14+ hour school and work day.

***CONS:
- Usually out of stock at my 2 local Target and Kroger. I have to order it online!
- Bad experience with all of E.L.F.'s eyeliner made me skeptical with this primer
- Packaged in a matte lip gloss like tube! Looked gross and unsanitary!

***PROS:
- Ultra sheer nude!
- Dosen't smell.
- Smooth, thick sour cream like texture.
- WOW! With this primer, I don't have to use as much eyeshadow because it makes my everything more vibrant and "punch".
- Savings on eyeshadows because I don't have to use as much!
- I'll put on my eyes and let it dry for a while. the finish is semi-dry and sort of tacky
- I bought this for $1! and a lil' goes a LONG WAY!
- One tube will last me 2-3 months.

I would definitely repurchase! For a $1, what is there to lose?

For $1, you cant really have unrealistic expectations, right? Anyway, used alone, I'm happy at how it intensifies my eyeshadows and makes them stay longer than without it. Without this, shadows last for maybe an hour before creasing (sad, I know), with this it lasts maybe 2-3 hours before it starts to crease. Better than nothing right? I noticed that if I put benefit's rsvp cream eyeliner on top and use my eyeshadows, it lasts for 3-4 hours before creasing! yey me! Dont approach the product thinking it will last you from day to night, otherwise, you'll really give it a low rating. Maybe I'll splurge on UD shadow primer when I get a job (or when I start earning more), but for now, off to the E.L.F. counter we go! I've had mine for 3 months. Still going strong! edit: I now have UDPP and I have to say that it is worth spending the extra $$$ on the UDPP. I mean, you dont need a lot on your eye, you dont have to go to the bathroom every 30 minutes or so to reapply, and the UDPP makes a HUGE difference on how your eyeshadow looks! But now I use this as a lip primer! I put TONS of lip balm 5 minutes before application, then put the primer on top! It gives the PERFECT nude lip! And it INTENSIFIES the color of your lip too! What more can you ask for? Just be sure to moisturize beforehand or your lips are gonna crack!

For a dollar? Heck yes!! Don't need a lot and make sure you let it dry but your eye shadow will last all day. Try it, what have you got to lose?

WOW! This stuff doesn't suck! It's not the most amazing primer ever... but for $1... I will definately buy it again!! It helps my eyeshadow last way longer, with less creasing. Unlike UDPP you will expirence creasing at the end of the day, but at hey its 1/18th of the cost of UDPP, plus I think you get pretty much the same amount of product :D

Some cons are that it stings my eyelids a tiny bit when I apply it, its not bad and only lasts for like 2 seconds, but sensitive eyes beware!!! Also it can make your eyelids look dry, but this is not unlike UDPP, you just rub off the flakies and moisturize that night.

This is the first eye primer I have ever used, and it works well to keep your eyeshadow on for like ever! XD It feels a little greasy on your eyes, but I like the applicator and you can't find anything better for the price. IMO.
