This is a really thin, non-tacky formula. I feel anyone would be better off just using concealer. It is tinted but doesn't provide coverage and becomes oily during the day.

I have oily eyelids in contrast to my dry skin, and instead of using concealer as an eyeshadow base, I wanted to see if eyeshadow primer is really necessary. I found that this made my eyeshadow patchy and didn't do much from creasing and transfer. Even for the price I won't repurchase

Not great. Really slippery and oily, I didn’t feel like it did anything for my makeup. It also gets up into your eyelid creases and looks like you never put it on. It works for a bit, then melts off. Wouldn’t buy again.

I used about 3 tubes of this, and looking back, I have no clue why. It, like every other eye primer I’ve used, did nothing for me. My eyelids are very very oily, and it didn’t help at all. A lot of people compare this to the Urban Decay primer, but if this is anything like it, I would never splurge on the UD primer.

Elf definitely has its hit and misses with their products, and for me this was a miss. The formula was too liquidy and honestly had no impact on the vibrancy of my shadows or the longevity of my looks. This was the first primer I ever bought a few years ago, so formulas may have changed, but I’ve found more effective primers and would not recommend this one.

not sure how it worked as it was too orange for my skin, therefore I couldn’t use it however hoping to purchase a new one in a lighter shade

Could not have been more disappointed. Yes it was only $2 but that doesn't mean the tube should only be half full.

It did nothing for me honestly it was cool to try and it wasn’t expensive whatsoever so it wasn’t much of a loss with this product if you want to give to a child for the fun of it go head

This stuff sucks. It evaporates and doesn’t help with the makeup process. I used it for a while and it never worked out for me.

For only $1.00, you can't beat the price. Do you feel the same way about most of the Elf line?
