Product claims and description: Preps your eyelid for smoother, longer-lasting and crease-proof eyeshadow. The lightweight liquid formula quickly absorbs into the skin for comfortable wear and increases eye color longevity. How to Use: Apply a thin coat of the e.l.f. Cosmetics shadow lock and eyelid primer to the eyelid and blend in using a blending brush. Allow the formula to dry before applying eyeshadow.
This primer is nothing amazing, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t worth its two dollar price tag. Most primers that I have seen claim to 1-Prep the eyelid so as to have a smoother canvas for eye shadow’s, 2-Even out skin tone and cover any vanes that may be on the eyelid, 3-Intensify colors and make them more vibrant and 4-Prevent creasing and smudging. While this primer does not even out skin tone or intensify the color of eye shadows it does keep them from creasing and give a smooth canvas for you to work with. I don’t know about other people, but for me the reason I needed a eye shadow it to keep the eye shadows from creasing. So for two dollars doing two out of four claims isn’t that bad. Besides the description of the product only claimed to keep eyeshaows from creasing and make them long lasting, which it totally does. I also love the doe foot applicator. Some may consider it unhygienic, but it don’t bother me.
Sheer is, as the name suggests, a sheer beige that almost fades away as you blend it in. It does nothing to cover up any imperfections that may be on your eyelids.
Pearl is just white with glitters. If you do not like glitter or sparkly, I wouldn’t suggest this color. It will make any matt shade that you apply over it have sparkle.
All in all I give this product a four out of five because pearl came come off a bit chalky looking at times.
