    This product covers well, it is a bit oily but works well, for the price this is a great product. Yes there are better primers out there but you get what you pay for and for the price it works great.

    Elf products are always so cheap, which usually is not a good sign. The very opposite is true for the eye primer, it works just as well as my MAC primer.

    My backup to Urban Decay's primer, when I don't need coverage for as long of a time period. And $1.00 - how can you go wrong, right? Just let it dry & set for a moment or 2 & it should be fine. And a little goes a long way, as it is easy to apply too much & then not have it work effectively.

    I think that this is a really good eye primer, it covers slightly, mattifies, and adheres to shadows. It does what an eyelid primer is supposed to, and its amazingly cheap too!

    I do feel as though this product is a dupe for the smashbox eyeshadow primer, but not as good as a quality. It goes on with good consistency but after applying my eyeshadow it felt as though i could run my nail across it an it would wipe off, and i was correct. It easily came off, but it could have been because i had used too much or i didnt give it enough time to set, but either way this product is going into the trash for me. I would stick to my urban decay eyeshadow primer potion.

    Expensive primers, step aside! This $1 e.l.f. find is a winner in my books. This primer makes a dramatic difference in the lasting power of your eyeshadow. I prefer the nude coloured one, although the shimmer-y shades aren't bad. The glitter pieces in champagne are a bit large and don't look very nice, so I'd just stick to the transparent one. The doe foot applicator is not the most sanitary and the product will not last as long as too face shadow insurance for example, but it is still very cheap and definitely worth the money. My only complaint is that they don't have any stores to buy from in Canada! Ordering online is not a problem for me (Especially during 50% off sales) but i know that it is for some people. Ohh.. maybe one day they will open a store here.
    Hope this helped!
