When it comes to makeup, I’m not super loyal to many products. Sure, I like Urban Decay palettes and have my favorite mascaras, but really, I’m pretty fickle. My bag is filled with all kinds of brands and when one product runs out, I’m usually content to try something new (usually from my Ipsy bag). One exception comes to mind of course, and that would be my love for the e.l.f. Shadow Lock Primer! I’ve written about it before, but today I thought I’d show the eyeshadow primer before and after!
I figured it was time to show you how this eyelid primer really works! I used my arm as a swatch and did a few comparisons showing eye shadow directly on my arm and then on top of the primer.
To start, here’s what the primer (I use the sheer one) looks like on my skin:
It looks more white on my arm than on my eyelids, but just think of it as being a blank canvas. You’re cover up redness, discoloration, and just creating a smooth, clean area for color!
Here’s a comparison of eye shadow. The one on the left is just directly on my skin, the one on the right is on top of the primer:
I had to use about 3 applications of eyeshadow on the left to even get color to show up! With the primer the color is much more saturated and vibrant. And I use less!
Another couple of looks:
Pretty amazing results for a $2 product!! Oh, and if you were wondering what Indy was doing while I was coloring up my arms with eyeshadow:
Just taking a little Sunday afternoon nap in my lap!
Do you have a favorite eyeshadow primer? I’ve used bareminerals in the past (it works great!) but it runs about $20. It’s hard to beat this $2 product!
