  • "I looove this stuff. I have quite a few fine lines under my eyes sadly and this really helps. It keeps the area moisturized. dry under eyes are a big reason why concealers crease. If you use a good eye cream it may not be worth it but at only $3, it doesn't hurt to try. I've gotten many, many uses as you only need a small amount. I bring it up on my eyelid as well but if you have oily lids I wouldn't. I definitely notice when I don't use it. Just make sure it goes on before your foundation. I know it sounds silly but if you do your concealer after foundation sometimes you might forget." in 26 reviews

I normally really enjoy Elf products but this one just didn’t do it for me. It didn’t moisturize my under eyes what so ever, if anything it made them almost sticky... I thought maybe I had applied too much, but even waiting out a while to make sure that it had time to sink in, it still felt sticky. It made my under concealer cake up like crazy, and fine line were exaggerated to the mmmmaaaaaxxxx. Didn’t enjoy it unfortunately. 😖😏😕e.l.f. Hydrating Under Eye Primer

I really did want to like this product. It’s very affordable but I guess you get what you pay for here. My makeup creases when I use this under my eyes, the texture isn’t bad it feels like a regular moisturizer but does not provide a moisturizing base (at least not moisturizing enough for a primer). Overall I would not buy this again, instead I’ll spend more money for something that works

This is a great under-eye moisturizer, but it didn't work well for me as a primer. It made my concealer feel very heavy and it didn't last as long as it usually does without creasing on me. I do enjoy using this as a moisturizer for under and around my eye area before bed, especially if my skin is very dry. It's not a bad product, it just didn't work for me as a primer.

If you don’t be careful how much you use in the day it tends to be empty faster. Once you put it on it does get tacky so that’s a good thing you could either put on your under eyes or nose. I recommend it because it kept my under eyes really moisturizing not feeling dry and it helped my concealer from not creasing

Wonderful product. I applyed the moisturizer under eyes around dark circles every night and five minutes before concealer. Its helps to hide lines under eyes and I dont need too much. Also the price is cheap. The only cons over the eye moisturizer is that it comes in a very small container so don't last too long.

It’s a nice under eye cream, I don’t know about calling it a primer. It really doesn’t make a lot of difference when I apply my concealer. But, since I always do my eye makeup first and then I have to wipe the fallout, it’s nice to use this as a light weight eye cream so my skin is nice and hydrated

I have dry skin so any moisture is nice, although this doesn’t help with creases like one may hope an under eye primer would do. It feels nice and smooth, but just doesn’t do much beyond moisturizing. It may be a little brightening for some, I’m very pale, but it does make me dewy.

Loving this under eye primer, makes removing my shadow so much easier! It’s the first I’ve used since I’m a makeup newbie but I’ll be a repeat customer for sure. Also got it on sale from elf.com which was an added perk!

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.

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???
