Product- Mineral Eyeshadow Primer
Packaging- A little tube with a doe foot wand.
Thoughts- I want to start off by saying that I do NOT own the $1 elf eyeshadow primer, so I can't really make any comparisons there. But that being said...on with it.
The primer is a flesh toned cream that proved to be a little chunky in texture. Once blended though, it smoothes down to a nice slightly powdery matte finish. The color will be a tad light for those who are darker than NC 25-30, so if your skin is darker than that don't bank on this product for simply evening the skintone on your lids.
The primer did a good job of holding onto eyeshadow when I was trying to build up a nice density of color, but because of this blending is slightly more difficult as primer really likes to hold onto the shadow. Unfortunately though, after a few hours of wear, creasing was observed, which means that the product failed in its important function.
Overall- I have slightly oily lids with a deep folded crease. This product only kept my lids matte and crease free for about 3 hours, 5 if I add in another primer. It's alright for days that I only wear makeup for a little while, but I can't see myself repurchasing this again.
Star Rating- 2/5...It only kept my lids matte for a few hours but it did help grab eyeshadows.
