This primer is amazing! It works great, holds your eye shadow all day, and is only $1. Usually, my feeling with elf products is that they're worth the price, but not much more. Not this! It's as good as some of the more pricy primers for a tenth of the price.

After reading online that this $1.00 product was comparable to Urban Decay Primer Potion, I just knew I had to try it, I have never used UDPP and now I never will. This stuff works and never fails me, this is coming from a person with hooded eyelids that do tend to get a little oily in the crease. Ive tried applying it thin and thick and it all ways pulls through. No matter what, I'm talking 17hrs of wear here people, yes 17hrs, and at the end of the night/early morning when I'm taking everything off my eye makeup still looks like I just did it, when I splash water on my face and look in the mirror, eyeshadows are still there looking perfect, it holds. No creasing or fading no problems, period :) I have the typical light beige nude color (Sheer) and I also have the other two colors, Champagne(Light khaki brown) and Pearl(White) these last two aren't matte like sheer but are a matte base forumula with shimmery chunky glitter specks, they are both just as good as Sheer. I love these so much that I buy them in bulk and when the wand won't reach anymore of the product because its all pushed to the sides of the tube, I cut it open, dig it out and depot it into an airtight jar,lol.Yes its only a dollar spent but this product is too good to waste. I will forever sing the praises of this primer :)
I don't have oily lids and this makes them feel really oily even when using a little bit. It also doesn't give me a "blank canvas" effect. Staying power is okay, some fading but never any creasing.
Best product out there for an eyelid primer. Makes my shadows stay on all day and never have regretted my purchase. I love that this is only for $1.00
who can beat the price? I have oily eyelids and this is a holy grail product for me. Hope it stays on the market forever and never gets discontinued.
This works just as good as high end eye primers, so for a dollar you can save the extra $ for something else! So glad this product exists, haha.
For a buck, you absolutely cannot beat it. And heaven forbid you catch a 50% off sale and grab this sucker for 50 cents.
It is incredibly comparable to Urban Decay Primer Potion - the only difference I've noticed is the staying power.
It goes on smooth, provides the tiniest amount of color, just enough to even out your eyelids and lightly cover any veins or discoloration.
It's tacky enough to really help your eyeshadow stick, although not *quite* as tacky as Urban Decay's.
In terms of staying power, I find that I get a solid 5-6 hours with this with just typical primer-shadow combo. If I use another base over the primer, I can get a couple more hours with it.
I would say by using this you would have no need for the Urban Decay primer, but with the long hours I work and whatnot, I have already sold my soul to Urban Decay. However, for a day that I know won't be as long, if I just have to go run errands or whatever for a few hours, I'll definitely use this instead.
As good as any other primer and only a dollar!
This was (I think) the first primer that I ever used and it works great. No creasing at all with this and I find it just as good as my TFSI. I always recommend this to friends who ask for makeup advice. It is only a dollar so not much to lose and at Target, so also really convenient!

I used to own the urban decay primer potion but i used it all up I find that this is just as good If not better it prevented creasing made my eyeshadow brighter can't belevie its only a dollar definitely will keep
inexpensive and great
I got two of these for $1 each, the sheer and the pearl shade. I use it almost every day and I love it. It helps your shadow last all day and not crease. And a little goes a long way. I have two of each as backups for when I run out. For the price you can't go wrong
The price is awesome. I get mine for $1 at target. It keeps the oil from making my eye shadow crease. Over it I use a white pencil and translucent powder and it makes my shadow stay on and have good lasting color. My days are normally 15-18 hours long and it keeps the shadow on until I go to bed and wash it off pretty much. Sometimes I do have to blend my makeup a tiny after I get off work but for the price this primer is perfect.
