For years I wondered why my eyeshadow would rub off so quickly and chalked it up to crummy products. Later, I learned that I needed to use eyelid primer for eye makeup staying powder (setting spray too). We learn by our mistakes! Anyway, I learned this little nugget of wisdom not long after I discovered e.l.f. Cosmetics and I immediately bought their eyelid primer along with a significant number …Read more

This products WORKS! I notice a real difference in my eye shadow when wearing this, it stays on the lid longer and there's minimal creasing. I also like that it really brightens up the eyelid before applying eye shadow. For what I spent on this (2 bucks) this is a really really great product.

This is a great primer that works just as well as my higher end ones. I like the beige colour as it covers any redness on my lids. This dries to a nice smooth finish. My shadows apply with ease and they do not crease which is great because I have oily lids. Also they stay bright and do not fade. The price is great and I would repurchase for sure. Recommended.

I think this holds eyeshadow better than concealer does, but this is not Urban Decay's Primer Potion. I went on accutane and my skin got dry. I stopped using eye primer. I thought I didn't need it anymore, but lately I noticed my shadow fading. When I was oily, UD was my HG and the only thing that kept my shadow on. I tried the elf and thought it lack luster in comparison. Now that my …Read more

Maybe I would wear this on a no-makeup day so my lids can just have a finished look. For me, it was a little oily (though I have combination skin) and I had some transfer of eyeliner. Would not repurchase, though. My favorites are shadow insurance, Lorac eye primer, and Urban Decay primer potion - in order. If anyone would be interested.

This is a great budget eyeshadow primer. I believe they reformulated this and renamed it "Shadow Lock Eyelid Primer", which is the one I have and it looks identical to the "Essential Eyelid Primer". This doesn't offer any coverage but it provides a smooth base for shadow application and prevents any creasing for 12 hours. I have trouble with my liquid liner getting on my …Read more

I wish this worked better because I love the applicator and the price. But at the end of the day, this does not do anything you would expect an eye primer to do. My shadow was still faded and creased.

I bought this, based solely on price, without having read any reviews. It was absolutely awful. First off, it did not apply sheerly, which then caused my Smashbox eyeshadow to look different on my lid and it caused alot of drag when I was applying eyeshadow. It had a rough texture once applied. I usually give 2nd chances to my products, but this was an absolute fail:(.

I've been using this eyeshadow primer for years now and it is incredible, never fails me, keeps my eyeshadow looking great for a long time. I have really oily lids and this primer prevents that from ruining my eyeshadow and eyeliner. It's $2 so very affordable, I was at first using it because I was barely getting into the world of eyeshadow, but I haven't let it go, it's …Read more
