I got this as part of a present from a friend who did a bit of an Elf haul for me! I am super impressed by what this does to my eye makeup. If I don't wear it, I usually have very little eyemakup left by the end of the day. If i do wear it the colour looks richer and truer - a lot of the make up I wear goes pink - and lasts a lot longer.

Meh, it wasn't nearly as wonderful as the Urban Decay Primer Potion. It's not terrible though - I'm giving it to my pre-teen cousin.

Another one of my ELF favorites! Keeps my eyeshadow in place all day and doesn't dry my eyelids out (like UDPP did). I like the Mineral Eyeshadow Primer from ELF just a smidge better, but only because it seems to be a little thicker? I feel like I get a little more coverage with the Mineral Primer, but for a buck...you can't go wrong with this one.

I actually like this primer. For a buck, itís a great deal. It keeps my eyeshadow looking nice all day. You put it on and it has very sheer coverage, feeling a bit oily at first but then soaking in and keeping your eyelids nice and dry in preps for shadow. Packaging sucks a bit, but I mean its not too bad. The major thing I donít like about it is the smell. The doe foot applicator is alright, but I usually spread it on the lids with the doe foot and then rub it in with my finger.

This is a great primer for the money. I tried on one eye, the ELF primer and on the other Urban Decay primer potion, and I didn't see a major difference by the end of the day. I would repurchase the ELF over the Urban Decay for the minor difference. 18 bucks vs. 1 dollar for not that much of a difference. Go with the ELF!

I find the quality of this primer really good for just a $1. I gotta admit it is a bit greasy but if you blend it out well enough, it works great.

I had to hurry in here and write about this product. I wear a lot of eyelid primers (Ultima 2 crease not, fade not, MAC soft ochre paintpot, The Body Shop primer, etc.)
I have never had a problem with any of these primers and I do not have sensitive skin. However, about fifteen minutes after I put this E.L.F. primer on my lids, with no other product over it, my eyelids were burning like crazy and even now, after I've removed it , my lids still have a burning sensation. In the trash this goes.

I find the argument that this is identical to the mineral line primer to be untrue. I believe the mineral line primer to far surpass this. This primer works for me but I don't like it as much. Sometimes when I apply it, it clumps up in my lashline and leaves cream colored chunks. :( It does help keep eyeshadow on but again, in my opinion, the mineral version does better. I believe I would go so far as to say the mineral version is my HG (I have tried UDPP and gave it to a friend b/c it dried out and stung my eyelids and returned the VS one for the same reason. Some day at Ulta I'll buy the tiny trial of TFSI probably.)
If you're making an ELF purchase, I would honestly say skip this and spend the extra $2 for the mineral one. I also would say steer clear of the Studio Line primer - mine got this weird wet film on it and made my eyeshadow look terrible. Of those 2 I would suggest this. But only if the mineral version is unavailable.

I really like this primer. I don't think it is oily, to me it feels more silky. I actually like the consistency better then my UDPP because the latter is more drying on my lids and I feel like I have to pull more on my eyelid to apply it. But of course the UDPP lasts longer and makes the shadow more true to the colors in the pan. But the elf one a close 2nd when it comes to those things, at least for me. And come on for a buck, it is way worth it!

I'm truly surprised how awesome this inexpensive eye shadow primer preforms! It's absolutely amazing!!! The only reason I purchased this was due to the good reviews on MUA and wanted to give something different a try as I was close to running out of my beloved TFSI. I purchased this on eBay for less than $4 (including shipping) and it really works. Provides a great base for shadows to adhere to, creates a little extra vibrancy and depth to the colours, and best of all no creasing! I have been using this daily for the last few weeks and experimenting with different MAC shadows in terms of colours and finishes (ie. lustre, satin, matte, etc..), all worked well with this primer and my oily lids! I don't think I will ever go back to either TFSI or UDPP!
