e.l.f.’s Eye Primer/Liner Sealer is a product I really wanted to like. One side of this item primes the lids for eyeshadow, while the other glides across any eyeshadow to transform the color into a personalized eyeliner.
The company’s website describes the product this way:
” The Prime side sets your eyeshadow in so your color won’t fade, bleed or crease. The Liner side transforms your favorite eye shadow into a waterproof, smudge-proof liquid liner with this unique clear liquid and built-in felt tip precision eyeliner brush. Now you can have your eye makeup lasting longer for no fuss no budge color. “
For $3 it was worth a shot, right?
I’ve tried the primer side a few times, giving it as many second chances as a bad boyfriend. It performed about as well, too. It’s pretty bad when the primer itself streaks and leaves nasty looking lines across your lids! Definitely not a keeper. It’s hard to apply because the primer is like an oversized concealer stick, next to impossible to evenly coat your lids, especially at the crease.
The liner sealer side digs into the eyeshadow and essentially messes it up for use as an eyeshadow later. I liked being able to wear some of my shadow colors as liner, but the color goes on very faint. I’d rather just buy a colored eyeliner pencil than deal with this mess.
I truly like some of e.l.f.’s products, but this is not one of them. After several attempts to find redeeming traits in this item, it finally found itself in the bottom of my trash can this morning!
