ELF Mineral Eye Shadow Primer Review
ELF makes two types of eye shadow primers. One is the eyelid primer which is just about a dollar and the other is the mineral eye shadow primer. I decided to try the mineral eye shadow primer since the normal eyelid primer seemed to have very bad reviews.
What does ELF say about the Mineral eye shadow primer?
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. 100% mineral based with no parabens, no preservatives and no chemical dyes.
Price: $3. Can easily get it off e-bay and the Eyes Lips Face website . 🙂
What I think about the ELF eye shadow primer?
This is part of the ELF mineral line which is really popular and also supposed to be great in quality.
I’ve read sooo many reviews stating that this one is a super duper replacement for the king of eye shadow primers a.k.a Urban Decay Primer Potion. And guess what? It really is!!
I really loved the fact that this is paraben-free and contains no preservatives or harmful chemicals. Way to go ELF . 🙂
Let’s take a look at the packaging. It looks more like a lip gloss tube with the same sponge tip applicator. There is just one shade which is called “Sheer”.
Texture-wise it’s pretty much similar to Urban Decay Primer Potion and is really really smooth and silky. Literally vanishes on my eyelids and no residue or hint of colour.
I just apply very less of it on my eyelid and blend with my fingers. Sinks in almost immediately and effortlessly!
About the eye shadow colour popping? Yes, it does make my eye shadows vibrant.
Do they stay put? They stay put all day long. I mean, I just start to see very very less creasing at the corners of my eyes after a good 8 hours! Isn’t that just awesome?
This one even holds the mediocre quality eye shadows really well. I’ve tried this with MAC, Maybelline, Smashbox, ELF and NYX eye shadows and all of them stay put. 🙂
I definitely need an eye makeup remover/oil at the end of the day to remove my eye make-up.
What I like about this eye shadow primer?
- Affordable and very comparable to high end eye shadow primers.
- Easy, hygienic and practical tube.
- Easy to blend.
- Makes eye shadows pop and makes them stay put the whole day. 🙂
- Contains no harmful dyes or chemicals and paraben-free.
What I dislike about this eye shadow primer?
Will I re-purchase this again? Hell Yeah . 🙂
To conclude, if you are looking for an inexpensive eye shadow primer, that is mineral based, contains no preservatives, chemicals etc. and also performs as good as the high end ones, then this one is for you.
I totally recommend this for everyone especially if you have oily eyelids and I am sure you‘ll like it. And while buying, please DO NOT confuse this with the ordinary eye shadow primer. Look for this one in the “ELF Minerals” range 🙂 . I hope my review helps.
