E.L.F. Eyeshadow Primer
Advantages: Helps eyeshadow to last and not crease, very cheap
Disadvantages: small tube so will run out quickly, can make skin feel a little greasy
I bought this product after reading other reviews on various websites which compared it to the highly recommended urban decay eyeshadow primer potion. Obviously a cheaper version (at only £1.50) so I thought it was worth a try (the urban decay product being approx £12).
When I received the item my first thought was that it looked a bit smaller than I thought it would be. Looks about half the size of a normal mascara tube. However it is v cheap so can't complain.
I usually apply the product on my eyelids after applying my foundation and before putting on any eye makeup. I apply it using the wand, it has a similar wand as a lip gloss would with a sponge at the end, then I rub the product into my eyelids with my finger. The primer looks like a very thinned out foundation (beigy colour) but once rubbed into the skin it looks clear. I must admit that the product feels slightly greasy on the skin when rubbed in. It is vital that the primer is fully rubbed in for it to work effectively.
The results of the product are excellent. I never used to wear much eyeshadow because after a few hours of wearing it the shadow would crease or wipe off completely. The product claims to ''Prep your eyelid for smoother, longer-lasting and crease-proof eyeshadow'', and I find that it certainly lives up to this promise. I am able to wear eyeshadow all day and night, and it never creases along my eyelid whilst I have the primer on. I am just worried now about how long the product will last as it comes in a very small tube...at £1.50 a tube I might just have to stock up. Definately a bargain!!! Cheap and cheerful but excellent quality. I have given the product 4 stars, the only reason I have not given it 5 is because the product can make eyelids feel greasy when first applied and it is very small in size so likely to run out quickly.
Summary: Would definately reccommend
