Rated 2 out of 5 by from Arrived sticky and leaked. When I received this product, the tiny bottle was sticky all over and when I opened it the liquid leaked out. I didn't even squeeze the bottle. Lost product there...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from UNEXPECTEDLY, I LOVED IT! I didn't think this item would be a quality product, but I bought it because I had a 40% off and was buying other ELF cosmetics. I used a pink uncompressed powder eyeshadow, and then used the Lock and Seal on the other eye. It was SOOO much more pigmented. I tried wiping it off with my finger, and the eyeshadow didn't come off. I had to use a makeup remover wipe, which is great because it probably means the eyeshadow would stay all day (including those times we accidentally rub our eyes).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HOLY GRAIL When I first bought this I only used it to seal eyeshadows in place (which it helps immensely), but as I have now gone through about 5 bottles of this stuff, I've learned it's fantastic on eyebrows as well as acne or hyperpigmentation spots that always seem to fade throughout the day. Putting a dab of this seals the foundation and concealer over any spots until you remove the makeup and also doesn't irritate the acne (at least on my relatively sensitive skin). For my senior prom I even put some of this into an empty spray bottle and used it as a makeup setting spray and IT'S PHENOMENAL. I don't use it as a setting spray every day because I would go through it way too fast, but it is great for special occasions where you want your makeup to last all day/night. This liquid is a miracle worker!The only thing I don't like is the brush. I find my finger to work much better. The brush seems to kind of scrape away any foundation or eyeshadow underneath whereas my finger can tap the liquid on without disturbing the product underneath. I do, however, love these little brushes for blending out liquid concealer! So I still find a use of the freebie brush included! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing long lasting color I love this so much. When I do any makeup on my lower lashline it is gone is about and hour but with this mixed into the eyeshadow it lasts all day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a bit of a must have for me! However, the bottle is crud. Leaks everywhere! So it's not very travel friendly as is. I did manage to decant it into a small bottle my boyfriend got for me at the vape shop. It works so well! I have much more control with the specific bottle I have, it has a long metal nose dropper on it. It's a few buck investment, but WORTH IT. The reason I like it so much is I have problems with my inner and outer corners of my eyes will fade into nothing. I've struggled with it for years until one day, I thought I would experiment with this little bottle of wonderful. I'll get a little bit on a cotton swab, dab it on my inner and outer corners, and bam, I'm fierce for the rest of the day! If I'm using a loose shadow or pigment, I'll use this to help adhere it, or to help give it a little more shine. Overall, for $3, it's a steal. Packaging sucks, but I can manage especially now that I have a new bottle to put it in. I'm a HUGE FAN of this stuff. It's like liquid gold to me. MUST HAVE. Holy grail status.The brush and mixing bowl are useless for me so I just toss them aside. It's no bit deal to me, I'm here for the liquid, and it delivers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a good mix in It's nice to mix with powders to make a liquid but doesn't replace setting spray if you put this in all of the makeup including foundation it just feels like a plastic layer over your face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Mixing Medium Ever I personally mix this with glitter or any powder I want to make into a liquid eyeliner and it works really well and stays really well. You could use eyelash glue as a base and put glitter on top butbyou will be picking latex off your eyelid for weeks, and this comes off with makeup remover, so pick ya poison. I've also heard you can mix some in with your foundation to make it last really long but I haven't tried that yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Guacamole! Yeah, this stuff is pretty stinking awesome. I have never had much luck with powder eyeshadows but with this stuff layered on top of them it is almost like I vacuum sealed the eyeshadows to my eyelids... I mean that as a good thing. Seriously, my eyeshadow looks don't move at all until I actually wash them off. I even tried using an eyeliner brush dipped in this stuff then in an eyeshadow color then applied as eyeliner and it works great! My fun color eyeliner options have grown vastly!The ONLY problem with it, which I think is my own fault for being in a clumsy rush all the time but I just want to warn people ahead of time about, is that IT FREAKING BURNS LIKE SOMEONE IS STABBING YOUR EYES WITH AN ICE PICK COVERED IN LEMON JUICE AND DEVIL SPIT if you get it in your eyes. That being said, if you actually take your time applying it you should not have that problem... I am always running late so I get careless with my makeup application... oops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Grail Product This stuff is AMAZING. Minus the fact that it burns your eyes if you put too much..It makes ANY eyeshadow look amazing. I MUST use it every time , even with highly pigmented shadows. I put down my shadow primer first [usually UD] , and then i place this right before i'm going to apply shadow. It does WONDERS.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unbelievably good I have never used something that works better than this. My makeup stays on all day and all night, couldn't be happier with this product. Reasonably priced too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! This product has manny uses. I use this to repair crumbled & cracked powered eye shadow, blush & pressed powder! Also you can apply it to a eyeliner brush & then your powder eyeshadow. It makes a great eyeliner out of your eye shadow. If you dampen a shadow brush with this. It gives your shadow a intense look. Experiment! This is a must have for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I really love this product. I use it instead of primer sometimes. It keeps my eye shadow on throughout a full day. No gunking in the crease or anything. I like the option of being able to mix it with shadows or putting it on the eyelid. If you apply it directly to your eyelid make sure the excess liquid is off the brush and you are patting otherwise you will mess up your design. Not that I've done that or anything...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Singular Product! But ... I haven't found a comparable makeup sealant anywhere else, and the super low price is incredible. I've been using this product for at least 4 years. I only use this to lock in my eyeliner; I don't mix it with the eyeliner, I just paint some of the product over the line after I draw it on, then let it dry for a few seconds. (I use a thin eyeliner brush, not the brush that came with the Lock & Seal.) My eyeliner stays put all day! But I had to knock off one star because of the shoddy plastic bottle, which leaks. I would say that 2/5 of the bottles I've purchased have gone to waste because the bottle totally leaked (and I had to clean up a mess), which is why started transferring the product to a tiny glass bottle with a tight seal, and I recommend everyone do the same if you do get a bottle that hasn't leaked or split. (But don't even think about traveling with an original plastic bottle even if it is still in tact, you will end up with a wet and sticky makeup bag!) Lots of people have mentioned the leaky bottles before, so I don't know why E.L.F. hasn't found a more secure way to package it yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer for long wear makeup! This product is a lifesaver for me! This works exceptionally well for really intricate eye makeup or bold lips. It keeps pigment locked in place and makes it resistant to smudging and fading. I also use this to apply loose glitter to my eyes, and I've never been able to find anything else that keeps it on like this does. All I do is lightly dab it on top of my makeup (not stroking or dragging, it'll ruin it) and keep my eyes closed for a few seconds until it dries. It stays on pretty much until you take it off. I wish they would start making bigger bottles of it honestly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from did it worse Ordered this product thinking that it would help the eyeliner have more staying power till my work day was done but not the case.I looked like I got punched in the eye, the under eye area was all black, it was worse than not using it.I won't say don't try it because everbody's skin chemistry is different. If you try it I hope it works for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer for me! Shadow primer alone definitely makes colors pop and last, but by applying the lock & seal, my eyeshadow appeared more vibrant and lasted even longer! I love this stuff and have been prone to repurchasing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for foiled shadows and shadow liners This is a really versatile product, and I love the way that it is packaged with a little cup to use for mixing and dipping brushed. I don't really forsee myself using the brush that is included- I have only been using this for foiling shadows and making liquid liners with eyeshadow, and the brush is far too big for that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for keeping things in place This keeps my eyebrows in place when applied with an eyebrow comb, dries matte so look natural

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful on pigments! I love to purchase eyeshadow samples from indie makeup companies. This works amazing with the metallic shadows, which look foiled after I mix in the lock and seal. LOVE IT! Makes my pigments pop so much better than any glitter glue on the market.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recently purchased this and it's so great for applying pigments and intensifying eye shadows, the only negative I have is the packaging could be a bit better as it does leak slightly. Overall great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Works great! I used this with the "Need it Nufe Eyeshadow Palette" and honestly, what a difference! The brush is great and it really did intensify the pigment (just the right amount for me) and it lasted all night! so happy with this product !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This works for hours! I adore this product. It may not hold for a whole 12 hours but certainly over 7 hours. When it was out of stock, I was hoping they didn't remove it altogether and contacted e.l.f right away. You need to sell this at Walmart too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT FOR ELF BAKED EYESHADOWS I absolutely love this product for the elf baked EYESHADOWS! This makes them so much more pigmented. When I use this with eyeliner it just make it wet and doesn't do anything. But the baked EYESHADOWS...... Wow

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've had this product for a few months, and I'm very--actually extremely satisfied. With proper technique the lock and seal works wonders. I use as directed with exception to the brush--For me, its e.l.f studio's contour shadow brush, add one drop (little goes a long way), my steps include: 1. Dab brush into solution, 2. dab into shadow (do not rub brush in to solution or shadow), 3. Dab shadow on eyelid, 4. Wipe excess shadow using baby wipes or make remover wipes between shadows, and 5. Use clean and dry blending brush to blend.
