Review : ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Primer

I got this quite a well ago for around RM10 (although this is only $3 in US), well still very cheap for a eye primer. This is my first eye base. When I bought it, I have not much expectation on this item, after all price is so cheap. So I just buy to try it.

This is in Sheer Colour

Note : This is made in China! Does this mean that this should be available in Shenzhen, then I shall be able to picked it up in Shenzhen?

The brush applicator

Yes I do feel the texture is creamy and feel a bit oily when I first applied. However after I rubbed and tapped in gently, its perfectly absorb into my skin. As if I don't have anything is applied on my eyes.

Remember to use only a little bit as we only apply on our eyes area.

Well, I am going to put ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Primer to test.

This is my look on one of my working day, nicely makeup because there is a function to attend at the hotel.

My eyes makeup of the day

I put a thin layer of ELF Mineral Eyeshadow before I do my makeup, note here I'm just using low range eyeshadow from I Nuovi which the colours are not lasting. However I mix a little bit of blue eyeshadow from my Lunasol's Dazzling Night pallette.

After 12 hours, my eyes makeup are still staying and does not crease at all, although I went out for lunch under the hot sun without umbrella (How bravo am I!) and attended function in the night.

So my conclusion would be , while ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Primer does not enhance the colour of the eyeshadow but it does a good job from preventing my eyes makeup from creasing and the colours stay on so well! A product that are worth very dollar, so girls out there, if you have not try any eye base/primer at all, this is the most affordable product for you to start with!

Pros : Make colour on eyeshadow long lasting, eye makeup does not crease , price are worth every dollar.

Cons : Cant think of any at the moment !

  7. Hi~ I got one for myself too~ although i seldom use eyeshadow to work.. but its really absorb very well.. once i tap it on my eyelid.. the texture is really feel good... i don't know how to describe it.. haha... but it really will last longer for the eyeshadow if u compare to not apply any primer.. Cheers~~

  8. I have bought this eye primer but have not tried it yet.

  9. Where do u get ELF primer? I'd like to try too

  10. Shawn : Can get from spree in forum :) Around Rm10

  11. Hi jess, do you apply face foundation on the eye lids before applying the eye primer? does it has any other tone or just only the sheer tone?

  12. Asiya: usually I will just dab a little bit of foundation or concealer before puting eye base to make the skin color more even.. Before put the eyebase for more long lasting effect. Yes the eyebase got only 1 sheer color and would be suitable for all skin color. Hope this helps!
