E.L.F has always been one of those drugstore brands that has fascinated me because people always say how amazing it is yet most of their products cost less than a cup of coffee.
When I was in Kmart recently I came across their Eye Primer and Liner Sealer and decided to pick it up and see if it did in fact compare to some of my higher end products.
I don’t normally wear a lot of eyeliner as I have fairly Hooded eyes so I find that the liner takes up so much lid space that I end up looking like a panda… so, to be completely honest with you, I’ve only tried the liner Sealer side of this product a couple of times. Because of my hooded lids my eyeliner, when I do wear it, tends to smudge or crumble pretty quickly and I did actually find that the Sealer made some difference with this! I applied my liquid liner and after it set I put the Sealer over the top and found that my eyeliner actually looked good and was still on my eyes after about 4 hours of wear. Again, as I’m not a big eyeliner wearer anyway I don’t think I’ll wear this product much but I think that if you do wear eyeliner and find you have trouble with its wear time this might help you.
When I first swatched the Eye Primer on my hand I didn’t have very high hopes for it. It seemed to sink in to my lines and have quite a dry texture. For some reason, however, when it was applied to my eyelids it was a completely different story! I feel like the drier texture kept my oils at bay and it seemed to seamlessly glide across my eyelids and the shadow was far more pigmented than without it! My eyeshadows definitely stayed smoother for longer with this Primer and I’m pretty shocked that it doesn’t cost more!
This product is available at Kmart, Target and on the Australian E.L.F website for only $8!!! Jump on it people! It’s so worth trying! 5 stars from me 🙂
