I believe these have been replaced with e.l.f. Shadow Lock Eyelid Primer. I don't see the "Essentials" one in stores anymore or on their site. I'm going to hunt down the sheer color this week,...

This is a very good product. It's my first actual eyeshadow primer. I used to use face primers for my eyelids, so when I used this for the first time I was astounded at how it made my shadow pop! I...

I got this in the pearl version and it just did not work for me. It has a ton of glitter and it smells really strange. Couldn't make it work :/ https://youtu.be/CMX0Emy79CU

Didn't read reviews ahead of time, my bad, so I was unpleasantly surprised that it had glitter in it! Not for the over 50 crowd. If you don't mind glitter I guess it does the job. Keeps eye...

This eye primer is absolutely lovely. I purchased the shade 'Pearl'. It doesn't allow any make-up that I place on top of it to crease, and it's so cheap. (It's $3 in Australia, but I'm sure it's $1...

This primer is great, my lids get very oily & my shadow by the end of the day is grose. This blends really easy & feels amazing. Even better it comes in a variety of shades. It must be popular...

I've just ordered my second tube of this. It is great! You have to leave it to dry and blend it in but it definitely stops eye make up from creasing. I've also used it in my smile lines to stop...

This eyelid primer is pretty good. I have all three shades and I would say the pearl is definitely the worst of the three but it is fine. I like to use the pearl when I'm using bright colors so it...

I bought this thinking it was an eyeshadow primer, but it's more of a base. I don't like it at all though, it doesn't blend, sparkles go every where and once it dries it flakes everywhere. It lacks...

I bought this product in Sultry Satin. This product is very frustrating to me- I find it impossible to blend out the edges, but maybe this just isn't the product I was looking for. At the moment, I...

Great eyelid primer. Stops shadow from fading and creasing. Nice texture, not greasy. Will buy again and again. It`s only $1.00. Can`t beat it with a stick!
