ELF Eyelid Primer Review And Swatches

Initially when I started doing make up I was not well familiar with the importance of face and eyelid primer. I use to think they are not essential to have. However, when I used to go to parties, I feel like even after using good foundations and eye pallets, something was lacking in my makeup, especially my eyes shadow used to fade more quickly than it should be and also it used to lack the lustrous shine in it. When I went deep into this cosmetics field, I came to the importance of primers and the role they play in flawless makeup application. So here am I with my first primer, ELF eye lid primer.

What Is An Eyeshadow Primer?
An eye shadow primer is often a multipurpose product, the most important purpose being to give eye shadow staying power. Primers can come in different shades that blend with skin tone. White primer is often used to make eye shadow shades more vibrant.

What ELF Says About it?
This gentle and completely sheer Eyeshadow Primer has key vitamins A, C and E to help prevent aging and moisturizes the skin. The formula glides on easily and disappears instantly to create longer-lasting, crease-proof eyeshadow. The Mineral Eyeshadow Primer is designed to be used with your favorite mineral eyeshadow to provide ultimate staying power for beautiful and vibrant color that lasts. All our mineral makeup are mineral-based with no parabens, no preservatives and no chemical dyes.

How To Use:
Apply a small amount to the eyelid and blend in. Use as a base prior to applying eyeshadow. Foe me it works best when applied after foundation.

My thoughts:
Well, it available in 3 shades; champagne, pearl and golden. I have got mine in sheer shades. It has a semi-thick consistency and comes with a sponge doe foot applicator. I usually apply it, after applying my foundation. I simply dab some product with the applicator on my eyes and then I use my concealer brush or more often my fingers to blend it out. It nicely even out my skin and provide a smooth surface for eye shadow application.

Telling very frankly, I was not expecting much for this primer, I just bought it to try the difference in eye makeup done with or without primer. It did a great job, it not only enhanced my eye shadow shine and colour, but also keep them on nicely for hours without fading. 
One thing more I want to share, I experienced it works well when applied after applying foundation to eyes, because when applied bare, it somehow make my lid darker. Over all, it’s a super affordable eyelid primer which  works great to make eyelid smooth and help creasing too.
