ELF REVIEW: Eye Primer and Liner Sealer
ELF Eye Primer and Liner Sealer €4.00 / £3.50
Primer: Does not smell nice – does not smell bad – cosmetic smell. I used to use a creamy textured concealer as a base for my eyeshadow. I also used to use a shimmer stick. But this, I find it works best because of its sticky texture making it easy for your eyeshadows to stick on your eyelids. It makes it easy to blend eyeshadows together. It is yellowish in colour and tends to brighten up your eyeshadows more than if shadow is applied on its own. It lasts a long time too. It is very easy to apply but I prefer the ELF mineral eyeshadow primer though.
Liner Sealer: The liner is amazing. I read online that you can turn your eyeshadows into liner by just wetting an angled brush and dipping it into the liner. Does not work. This baby is amazing though. I used a cheap eyeshadow, and it turned it into a bright liquidy eyeliner. Amazing. The brush is a bit weird to me, it's stiff as a rock, I tried loosening it with the make up remover but I ended up fluffying the brush. It still works just fine though, and if I find the brush annoying, I'll just dip a small tip lip brush in. The actual formula is amazing though. The smell is not that nice, it smells just like surgical spirit to me. I'm not that bothered though because most of the liners I have owned smell pretty bad too. I find that this works best with very metallic or shimmery eyeshadows, matte eyeshadows don't look as bright and vibrant as the shimmery ones do. I also find that the liner sealer is great to set your cream liner.
Would I repurchase?
Probably not, the primer does crease a tad bit [over long hours], and I don't reach for the liner sealer a lot, but it's worth the try, you might actually love it.
UPDATE: I hate this product, creases like hell and the liner sealer is no good. I never reach for it :( Sorry ELF, this is a big NO NO
