Product Review- e.l.f. Eyeshadow Primer

e.l.f. Essential Eyelid Primer Review

e.l.f. Essential Eyelid Primer

From the Brand: Preps your eyelid for smoother, longer-lasting and crease-proof eyeshadow. The lightweight liquid formula quickly absorbs into the skin for comfortable wear and increases eye color longevity.

Retails for:  $1.00

Where to Buy:, select Target stores

My Thoughts:  For only one tiny measly dollar, this eyeshadow primer sure packs a punch!  I wouldn't put it up on the same tier as the Too Faced or Urban Decay versions, but this is more than sufficient for people on a budget who want their eyeshadow to last longer than on bare lids alone.

It's easy to apply with the wand, although I caution against using it on the lid directly if you'll be applying it to multiple people.  Even when using it on myself, I still put some on the back of my hand then work it in an even layer over my ring fingertip for the most even and sanitary application.  Since this has no color to it, it's great for any skin tone, but if you have discoloration on your lid that you'd like to hide, be sure to add some concealer or foundation over your eyelids first before applying the eyeshadow primer.

Final Verdict:  Don't let the price tag deter you!  This eyeshadow primer really works!

  1. What if you put the foundation on AFTER the eye shadow primer? Would that work?? Or does it really only work at priming eye shadows? I actually have this but I've never used it yet! lol


  2. I guess if you were just using foundation on your lid instead of shadow, I don't see why it wouldn't grip the foundation for you. But if you are using shadow, too, then I'd recommend doing the foundation to cover imperfections, then primer to grip the shadow, then your shadow. If you put foundation over the primer it will lose its stickiness.
