Let’s Review: E.L.F. Shadow Lock Eye Primer


This is something I pull out on a fairly regular basis.  E.L.F. Shadow Lock Eye Primer.  After reading some reviews online about it, and finding out about the raves and the extra bonus on price ($2.00 U.S.!) I felt it wouldn’t hurt to try it out.

I picked “Sheer”.  The wand is the usual spongy thin applicator type,


Can you see that the wording of E.L.F. is rubbing off?  That’s how much I use this!

It glides on creamy, but move quickly, because it dries and stays put.  You want to start spreading it a bit — I have used my fingers but I think I’m going to try it with the blender sponge, because I want more of a finish look and it can look a little bright, which is fine, but then you can see where it was applied and it needs a better blending technique to soften the edges.

Although it’s an eye primer, I’ve used it as a concealer for the under eye area — brightens the area and I look more awake.  Again, quick to blend as once it dries, that’s it.  One thing:  if you have a dry skin patch, or don’t blend it well, you may see a flake or two later.  Minor detail I can happily and readily overlook.  Incredible staying power, does not rub off and you will need a gentle eye makeup remover — I use Cetaphil and it comes off just fine.

My first intro to E.L.F. Cosmetics and works with my oily eyelids and keeps the eye makeup fresh on my lids.  Perfectly portable, have this in your overnight bag, brightens my eyes up nicely.  May be the beginning piece of what I hope to build — a Ride or Die makeup kit!
