REVIEW: ELF mineral eyeshadow primer

This product has been compared to Urban Decay's Primer Potion which retails for $15 I believe, but I never had that.

Why do you need a primer:
to make your eyeshadows pop
to make it easier to blend
so that your eyeshadow will stay put
to avoid creasing

My eyelids are not oily, so I don't know how it would perform on oily lids.

The Good Stuff:
easy to apply
it is sheer
does not make your eyeshadows look cakey
lasts quite a long time
you need only a little
feels really smooth
no chemical additives
no parabens
no chemical dyes
simple packaging i.e. easy to store or carry

The Bad Stuff

I found that after 10 hours there is very very minimal creasing on my eye, I mean, I can see it, but you'd have to come against my eye to see it.

This or That:
I also have the studio line eye primer and liner sealer [CLICK HERE FOR REVIEW], and I prefer the mineral eyeshadow primer all the way.

Side note:
I also bought the eyelid primer from ELF's regular line recently but haven't opened it up yet.

Would I recommend to a friend: YES
Will I repurchase: YES!!

  1. I think that I might have to pick up the mineral primer next time I make an order! I love all of your reviews on the ELF products!

  2. thanks sweetie. I love most ELF products I buy, but there are very few products I regret buying from them. I plan to do a full post about that and about my favourites from their lines too :)

  3. Thanks for the review! I was a bit confused whether I should get it or not but now I'll surely do so:))

  4. I'm gla it was helpful for you Rakhshanda, I'm sure you'll love it :) P.S. I love your name it sounds very glamorous to me :)

  5. I love this primer, I have oily lids and it works great! No creasing like I thought would happen. My sister bought the primer from the regular line I'll have to see how she likes it.

  6. that's great shabby, I thought this would crease on oily lids but I'm glad you like it. I also bought the eyelid primer but I haven't opened it yet. :) Let me know how that works out on her :) xx
    Thanks for stopping by sweety x

  7. hey~i have this primer too and I am in love with it~My eyeshadow does stay on all day long~well~

  8. I use the basic line one and I'm satisfied. I'd love to read a post comparing the 3 elf eye primers since you have them all, it'd be so helpful!
