Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Primer It's a nice primer. I just wish there was more product. It goes on very nicely. It wouldn't be very good with super oily skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pearl is amazing! out of the 4 colours available, i have this primer in the shade "pearl" i love that it is white, because a white base makes vibrant coloured eyeshadows stand out. since i am dark skinned, blues and greens and purples never POP on me, but this primer whitens my lid, giving eyeshadows a blank white space to cling onto, which makes it more vibrant. i only use this primer when i am going to use a vibrant eyeshadow that i need to really pop. the primer itself is good, my oily eyelids stayed matte for a majority of the day and my eyeshadow never creased. the shade pearl definitly increases pigmentation of the eyeshadow, because pearl gives the eyeshadow a clean white base to cling onto. i generally apply elf's tone correcting concealer in ivory all over my lid, and then apply this, and it creates an almost opaque white base for my shadows. since the elf tone correcting concealer is quite liquid and sheer coverage, i can use it underneath the somewhat thick primer without my eyelids looking cakey. i love pearl for vibrant eyeshadows because for tan or dark skinned ladies, it really gives eyeshadow that pop of colour that we wont get on our bare skin. great primer, WONDERFUL price, i highly recommend even over some high end primers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beats all my expensive primers!! I LOVE this product! I am 37 years old and starting to get noticeable creases and crinkles in my eyelids, but I love wearing eyeshadow and eye liner. Sometimes these products can cause the lines to be more noticeable on my lids. I really wasn't expecting anything from a 1.00 primer but boy was I surprised!! I had been using a big name brand expensive anti-aging primer but I found that while it made my shadow stay longer, it actually EXACERBATED my eyelid creases! This ELF primer goes on silky smooth (actually smoother than the other one!) and makes my lids look smooth and creaseless! I got it in Sheer, which is actually a very, very light pink. Amazing product! Please keep this, I will be purchasing more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps my make-up looking clean all day I used eyeshadow for years when I started wearing make-up, which resulted in smudged make-up at the end of the day, especially in the winter when the cold weather and wind lead to watery eyes. This primer is great and I've recommended it to so many people since I started using it a few years ago. My make-up doesn't smudge at all, and even survives water pretty well. I'm so impressed with the quality and price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I brought this item the champagne eyelid primer and I hate it, it' doesn't keep my eyeshadow on for long, Idk if it's either the primer or eyeshadow. But the color is so dull.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely worth more than you're paying I have very oily eyelids that I used to struggle with when it came to eye shadow, but, thanks to this product, my struggles are gone. This primer is worth more than the dollar you are paying for it. It blends perfectly and prevents all creasing, and, a bonus, even keeps the sparkle in your shadow preserved and on your eyelids, instead of settling under your eyes instead. I absolutely adore this primer. It works great. You definitely get what you pay for. I 101% recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price! I bought this a month or so ago, works well, no problems with it, you only need to use a little product and its goes a long way. And for $1 its a steal! I have sensitive skin and have no problems with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best primer I've ever used I've struggled with extremely oily eyelids for years, constantly causing my eyeshadow to crease in a couple hours. I tried all sorts of reasonably priced primers with little luck, that was until I used the Essential Eyelid Primer. I bought the primer in sheer and have never used any other brand since (I even stock up on it).I apply it to my lids before foundation and usually after the ELF mineral primer (though sometimes I just apply the primer alone). My shadow holds up all day, and that's saying something since I wear a lot of dark, smokey shadows. The product applies smoothly without drying my lids out and even helps to conceal dark circles, as well as brings out the color in my shadows. I apply it with the brush in a swipe across my lid, then blend it out with light dabbing of my ring finger so as not to tug at the delicate skin.And, even though it's not good to do so, I have on occasion slept in my makeup (it happens, what can I say?) and my shadow STILL LOOKS GOOD IN THE MORNING. Hands down, this is the best primer I've ever used and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for dark circles under eyes I got this primer at target, because it was so cheap and i needed one, and i thought it would be just fine, but it's so much better than I thought it would be, it covers my dark circles, which i had a huge problem with, and the price is so good. I recommend this product to everyone

Rated 3 out of 5 by from dried quickly I bought this in pearl because it was the only option at Walmart. And I do really enjoy the product! The shimmer in it makes lazy days easy- because all I have to do is put ionprimer and eyeliner/mascara and I'm done. But after a few uses I feel like it's drying out in the bottle I know it's only a dollar but seriously? That drives me nuts. :/

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a Fan I am not a fan of this stuff. I figured I would try it since it was only a dollar, so I'm not too disappointed. I ordered the golden colored primer. It was too sparkly, not creamy, and it dried out my eyelids. Let me tell you-my eyelids are not usually dry. I have pretty oily skin, so I was surprised that it dried out even MY eyelids. Everyone's skin is different, and mine just didn't like this primer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!!! I brought this from my local Target about 2 weeks ago. Let me tell you this product is amazing! I was using Black Radiance eyeshadow primer at first. This product is so much better it truly keeps my eyeshadow in place all day long! I can get 3 of these for the one from Black Radiance and it works just as good if not better. I like this product so much I just went to target to purchase the pearl color because I didn't want to run out!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth what you paid for! People are really not liking this too much, but I think it's great. I bought it in pearl because heck, it's a dollar. Anything that you pay for and does its job is defineatly worth it. It works great and it gives the perfect base to any type of eye makeup you use. Will repurchase!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Glitter ball I ordered the pearl thinking it would be ugh pearl, this is just glitter and it went everywhere I had to take my makeup off my face. I have the regular and love it, but unless you want to look like a disco ball, or a vegas showgirl stear clear of the pearl

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Primer! I bought this a few years ago, and loved it! It does appear cakey at times, but in its defense, I had been using it past its expiration date too. I got some of Urban Decay's primer potion for a Christmas present a while ago and have been using that, but it's about to run out and UD is out of budget for me, so I'll definitely be getting this again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good staying power but too sparkly I bought this in gold and champagne. The gold is much too sparkly and doesn't apply evenly. The champagne color works much better and has less sparkle. As far as keeping my shadow on, works great. But don't know if I would repurchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lasts all day, even through work outs. I received one of these in a beauty bundle and I wear every day. It's easy to apply, doesn't irritate my sensitive skin, and if I run after work, everything stays in place. I do wear waterproof gel liner and waterproof mascara, but on days when I've forgotten my primer, I have gotten raccoon eyes! So I never go a day without it.Now all they need is to make it anti-aging and this product would be unstoppable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep repurchasing this! I am so happy with this primer! I love how light weight this product is. It keeps my eyeshadow from creasing and makes them last all day! I have repurchased this from the elf website and in Target several times (I actually think I'm on my sixth tube.) I use this product every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Great I have been using this in Sheer for about 2 years, and have never had a problem with it yet. It had just enough coverage, while staying lightweight, and really helps to hold my eyeliner and shadow on all day! And you really can't beat the price!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't Work I have really oily eyelids and this didn't stop creasing whatsoever. If you don't have oily eyelids this might work for you, but it didn't work for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE, LOVE, LOVE I bought these for everyday use and they are good and serve the purpose but the only problem is once you put it on, it dries immediately and it's difficult to even it out. Still love though because the eyeshadow covers it up, unless it's a real light color.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dried Up I bought the primer and was super disappointed to find that it was completely dried up when I first opened it. I tried rubbing the sponge tip against the inside of the tube but it came out dry as a bone every time I tried. I can see from the sponge tip that it was a beautiful color with some sparkle in it. I will try ordering one more time...hopefully I will have more luck next time! I'm not sure if I'd recommend this product to a friend because I was not able to try it...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous product! I'd never used an eyeshadow primer before, so I really wasn't sure what to expect. I LOVE it. I just swipe some on my eyelid, blend it in with my fingers, let it dry, and my eye makeup doesn't budge. Not only that, but it actually looks amazing all by itself without eye shadow! I got this in pearl and sheer. I use the pearl on my eyelid and sheer under my eye, and using it that way brightens everything up beautifully. I instantly look awake. I love the shimmer/sparkle of the pearl on my lids and the smooth, natural finish of the sheer underneath. One note, do NOT make the mistake of using the pearl underneath your eyes, as it looks like you went a bit overboard on the glitter or are going to a disco. The first time I used the pearl, I was so thrilled with how great it looked on my lids that I kept blending all around my eye without thinking, and realized my mistake after the fact. But that was my bad. NOTHING bad to say about this product. And for a dollar? Seriously?! You really can't beat that value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works just as good as more expensive brands This primer is only a dollar and works just as well as the $20 dollar eye primers I used to buy. My eyeshadow stays put, doesn't crease or smudge. For a dollar! My only suggestion is to have some of these in colors that would also look good on their own. I have a more expensive primer that on days I'm running late I can use without shadow but look like I took the extra step to put shadow on.
