The highlight shades are fantastic and the colors are versatile for every skin tone. Extremely pigmented so one needs to be careful when putting it on because just one swipe will be more than enough. Only down side for me that I find it hard to blend, but the end result after the difficulty is amazing! I use it nearly everyday and have already purchased my second. Definitely worth it!

Not a good under eye primer but then again most of the primers I've tried from them haven't been that good. It's really oily and doesn't mix with high end or drug store make up well I think it actually might work well if you are using an elf concealer and foundation along with it though so if you are up to try it out that way it may be well worth it.

The primer transforms your face into a flawless, smooth canvas ideal for long-lasting makeup application. The formula is infused with grape, Vitamins A, C, & E to help boost complexion and hydrate your skin. Apply to clean skin prior to makeup application to prep skin. Use a small amount and blend evenly on your face.

I just got this product but love it already ! I searched it on the back of my hand and it made my hand soft. It really hydrated my under eyes and makes my makeup go on much smoother. If the container was bigger and there was more product i’d consider using it on my whole face

A resounding meh for me and this under eye primer. It is slightly hydrating but it really didn't improve the application of my eye concealer or diminish crease lines. It does go on a bit greasy and allows your concealer to move around when it is applied over it. I usually would need to add some powder over it to reduce shine-- which can continue to accentuate creasing.

The things that I love about elf is that they are very affordable and allow you to experiment with products. They are also cruelty free which is awesome!

Overall this is not one of Elf's best.

For the most part this eye primer was great. It’s the only eye primer I’ve used though so it’s hard to really judge it. But I can say that my eye makeup stayed much better than it does with out it. I have oily eyes and this helped my makeup to stay in place.

I have dry skin and my under eye is my most wrinkly spot with the dry skin. I already use a skincare cream for under eye but my makeup looked cakey after applying. I found this hydrating cream and it has been a game changer for how my makeup looks.

An amazing primer that makes my eyeshadow last all day long. The consistency is great not oily at all. It applies amazingly and lasts all day. It compares to all the other high end eye primers and I love it. Would buy again and would recommend to a friend.

I got this as a gift. I wasn’t expecting much but i had good experiences with previous elf products. This was a new concept to me put it didn’t do much for my makeup. If i was to buy it, i wouldn’t be that upset especially for the price.

Does this product help with preventing concealer with creasing under the eyes? This is a constant struggle no matter what concealer I use. I recently started using a better eye cream but it is still so frustrating. Anyone else have this issue? Does this product help???
