What does eye primer do? There are basically two main functions of an eye primer. First it to prevent the eye makeup from creasing and second is to make the eye makeup long lasting. Some eye primers also act as eye shadow base. The main reason for reviewing this product is I just finished it so I wanted to share my views about this Elf Eyelid Primer.
This Elf eyelid primer retails $3. It comes in sheer and Blush. Today I am reviewing Elf eye lid primer in sheer. It does not have any color to act as eye shadow base so it is expected to only prevent creasing and making the eye makeup long lasting.
For application it has a wand and you can directly apply it on your eyelids.
I have tested it for 6 to 7 hours and there was very minimal creasing which is very good for a $3 primer. I do not have very oily eyelids so normally my eye shadow doesn’t move even if I don’t use any eye primer. As far as making the eye makeup long lasting is concerned, this primer kept it intact for about 3 hours. After 3 hours it started fading away.
As I mentioned earlier, I don’t have super wrinkly or oily eyelids this primer did a decent job for me.
Am I going to repurchase it? No. Even though it works really well for its price but I would like to try some other product rather than buying this one again.
This product won’t work for you if you have oily eyelids and looking for something that would keep your makeup last longer.
Also if you are looking for something to provide a base this is not the product for you.
