This lightweight drugstore primer creates the perfect base for your lids, resulting in longer-lasting and crease-proof eyeshadow. Did we mention this dupe only cost $2?!

Ok, so I have watched countless videos comparing this eyeshadow primer to the Urban Decay eyeshadow primer and I decided to try it out for myself. For $2 this primer is the bomb.com I tried it for the first time yesterday for Easter festivities and it did not let me down. I applied my makeup around 10:30 in the morning and I didn't come home until 9-10pm so a total of 12 hours I had a full face of makeup on and none of my makeup went anywhere. my eyeshadow looked just as I first applied it and there was no creases in the color either. 10/10 would reccommend if you are looking for a cheap and worth it eye primer. THan kyou E.L.F.!!!! <333

Does the doe-foot applicator on most eyeshadow primers seem less sanitary? Well, wet n wild's squeeze tube primer not only is a great option to avoid harboring bacteria, but it also works wonders on the lids just like it's $24 counterpart.

I really enjoy using this as an affordable alternative to my Urban Decay primer potion. This eyeshadow primer does a really great job of evening out my skin tone on my lid, and prevents my eyeshadow from creasing or budging all day. This eyeshadow primer really does what it's meant to do and I have no complaints. I would definitely recommend this eyeshadow primer to anyone who wants something more affordable but that works. wet n wild Photo Focus Eyeshadow Primer...read more

This is my holy grail eye primer. I feel it does as good of a job as Urban decay primers, it's extends the wear of any eyeshadow and doesn't crease or fade. I have repurchased this twice in two years and I use it every day, but you only need the tiniest amount to cover both eyes, so it lasts a long long time. I have also bought this for others as gifts and they all love it too. ...read more

If you have veiny lids or discoloration, you might want to check out essence I Love Stage Eyeshadow Base. This $3 primer is formulated with a flesh-shade that works great for disguising redness or unsightly veins on the lids.

Once again: an amazing eye primer for an amazing price. You don’t need to break the bank on eye primers when this base exists. Reminds me a lot of the Urban Decay original eye primer. Dries clear so all skin types can use it!! ...read more

NYX HD Eye Shadow Base goes on nude and dries up invisible, while acting as the perfect base for your eye looks. Simply dip, dab, and apply your favorite lid colors.

Personally I think this eye primer is great! It was between $4-6 in price and works just as well as Urban Decay Primer Potion. In fact, it is much better than the anti-aging form of the primer potion that I tried (and hated). Definitely recommend this primer as a good dupe for UD Primer potion. ...read more
