Review: e.l.f Eyelid Primer #SheerJune 11, 2014
Hello beautiful^^ how are youuuuuu?
OMG I really miss this blog T___T sorry for having MIA, because I have crazy months because of my thesis and the other family events. And I just realized, in May I just posted once and it's about tutorial. I'll try my best to post more often, because this month I also busy with my thesis, anyone can help me? T____T
Anyway, excuse my rambling and in this post I'll give lots of picture, just try out my new camera and I really love with the result, so I decided to put everything in here :p hehehehe. Back to review, I'm gonna review e.l.f Eyelid Primer in Sheer. Actually I have this product about a month ago, use it for daily makeup routine and I really love this product!^^ Let's take a look, shall we?^^
Actually, there is no special thing about the packaging. I can't complaint since it's drugstore product and it's really cheap (with great performance, ofc!). At the front side we can see the information about the name of the product, shade, and the size of this product. The packaging itself it's really simple, it doesn't need any box . The product covered by mica plastic in the center. e.l.f Eyelid Primer itself has 4 shades, there are: Golden, Pearl, Champagne and Sheer. I can't choose the othder shade beside of this shade. Because at that time, the online just provide this shade and the other shade must pre-order. So yeah, I just take this one.
At the back side, we can see the description of the product. It claims that this product will preps the eyelid for smoother, longer-lasting, creaser-proof eyeshadow and will increase eye color longevity. There is also the direction of the product. Just use it thin coat in your eyelid, blend and wait until it dry before you put the eyeshadow. You just wait about a minute. I usually use this primer with make a three dots on my eyelid (corner, center and at the end of eyes) and blend it well with my ring finger.
|it can be use for 12 months and no animal testing :D|
e.l.f Eyelid Primer has plastic tube packaging, it's really light and travel friendly. It has wand applicator. I wish it has squeeze tube so it can more hygiene and easy to control the primer when it will running out, because you just squeeze the tube. But for the wand? I don't know how to do it >< lol~~
Now let's move to the swatch. This primer has matte finish and no shimmer at all (ofc, it's matte xD) and you just use this a little bit. But, if you have special occasion and the events take a long time, you can add the primer by layering it.
The performance for this primer is great! I can't say any more. As you can see, the primer really increase the color of the eyeshadow and make it smooth. For this swatch I used random color from my MUA Pastel Pallete. It has beautiful pastel color, but somehow the pigmentation is not good. So I use some colors from the palette to test this primer and the result turns out really good!^^
How about the staying power? I really love the staying power. It can stay on my oily lids for a day if you use this by layering it. But, if you use this single layer, it can stay for 8 hours. The eyeshadow color just fade away not dissapear at all. Please note, I have really oily eyelid, if you have normal eyelid, this might be better on its performance.
This picture below shot after one hour application and I rubbed hard with tissue. As you can see, the eyeshadow without primer dissapear meanwhile with this primer still stay on its place but the color just fade away.
Oh, this is me with full makeup that I did by myself and using this primer. This picture taken at my wedding cousin and I become the pagar ayu at the moment. This picture taken at 4pm and I started makeup and using this primer at 7am. The color still there and didn't move or dissapear.
Overall, I really love this primer. It can works on my oily lids and the price is really cheap (around $3 or Rp. 35.000-40.0000, depends where you get this). I can't say anymore, great price and great performance. What should I say anymore? :D If you want to save your money and buy a eye primer, you can try this eye primer. Actually I really wanna try the other primer, but I will stick with this eye primer for this moment. :D
Where I buy? Nyx Olshop
Price: Rp. 40.000
