As an eyeshadow obsessed lady, if safe to say that a quality eye primer is a necessity for my shadow to look just as good at the end of the day as it did when I applied it. I've tried a few over the past couple of months and I can confidently say the the e.l.f. Shadow Lock Eyelid Primer in Sheer is the best that I've found.
There are a few specific things I look for in an eye primer for me to truly love and reach for it daily:
It needs to be quick and easy to apply, since I am always running late and in a rush to apply my makeup in the morning. The e.l.f. primer has a perfectly sized doe foot applicator that has the right amount of product to prime both eyes with two swipes. Love that.
An eye primer also needs to blend out to a sheer layer, so it doesn't interfere with the shadow color I'm going with for the day. This one looks opaque when first applied, but once you'd done a little fingertip blending across the lid, it's seamlessly there without being "there".
Lastly (and most importantly) it needs to make my shadow stay in place all day without creasing. This is the true sign of a top-notch primer for me. If my shadow is crease-free at the end of the day, then I know this is the primer for me. (And I'm sorry to say that the Urban Decay Primer Potion failed this test- what a let down!)
Check, check, check - the e.l.f. primer does it all! Need something else to sweeten the deal? It's only $2!! It does everything I need it to do and it's affordable? That's a win-win!
I hope everyone has a good week! Work has been absolutely crazy for me the past few months- 6 days a week and long hours each day. I'll be back to regular hours in a few weeks and seriously can't wait for more free time, dinner at a normal hour, and actually seeing the sun! It's the little things...
