Review: E.L.F. Eyelid Primer

The bad news is Sunday funday is coming to an end, the good news is my eyeshadow held up pretty good this weekend.

As I mentioned in my last post, I picked up E.L.F.’s Eyelid Primer for a buck and tax at Target.

I have previously used Urban Decay’s Primer Potion, Too Faced Shadow Insurance, and most recently Mary Kay’s Signature Eye Primer.

Urban Decay & Too Faced are both very reliable brands for eyeshadow primer. As for the eyeshadow primer from Mary Kay… Let’s just say that immediately following application, my eyeshadow was pretty. When I saw myself in the mirror a few hours later, my eyeshadow was NOT pretty… or at least what was left of it (not much). Both the NYX Natural Palette and the Urban Decay Naked Palette refused to adhere to the Mary Kay eye primer.

Summary:
While the E.L.F Eyelid Primer does not quite match the staying power of higher-end brands, I was very impressed to see that my eyeshadow was almost perfectly intact with very minimal creasing. This creamy eyelid primer creates a smooth canvas for eyeshadow. Not only are colors easier to blend, they stay on longer, too. It just may be the ideal eyelid primer for those that find their current eyelid primer too drying. For the price and performance, I can definitely recommend this product.
