Elf Eyelid Primer Review

Hey girls,
So today I decided to review the ELF $1 Eyelid Primer.
This review is long overdue. I bought this way back in February or March, but I hadn’t really tried it much since.
So I decided, it was about time that, I tried it out a bit so I could review it, so for the last 2 or 3 weeks, I’ve been using it very frequently.
Elf Eyelid Primer Review

Price: $1 at Target or eyeslipsface.com
Packaging: Sleek tube with a black top. Has a doe foot applicator like some other primers and lip glosses.
Consistency: Thin and oily to the touch. Although once blended in really well it pretty much dries and seems to set. It also has a very slight tint. As you can see by looking at the tube and at the pictures below, it has a light concealer color, but it is very thin so if you have darker skin it wont show up.

The shiny look towards the bottom is the oiliness.
Oops! I forgot to take a pic of it completely blended out.
How it worked: I can show you better than I can tell you. But I’ll tell you anyway. It makes eye shadows a bit more vibrant, although I didn’t use the best example in the picture below. Sorry. As far as creasing, it definitely creases, but not immediately on me. It lasted about maybe 4-5 hours. I’d say.

Eyeshadow look
This is my eye shadow within 10 minutes of application.
Eye shadow looks vibrant and hasn’t creased.
Eyeshadow look 1
This is my eye shadow about 6-8 hours after application
As you can see it has slightly faded around the natural
creases of the eye and it has creased quite a bit. Although
the rest of the shadow still seems to be pretty much in place.
It’s just the eye shadow around the crease that has
faded and creased
Overall: I’d say that it isn’t amazing, but for $1, I good. I’d give it 3.5 out of 5.
Finally, would I repurchase it? Maybe, but I’d probably splurge a little bit more and try out the Palladio one from Sallys. I think that one is $7 or $8.
Hope you found my review on this product helpful. If you have any other question or comments,
don’t hesitate to leave them down below.
