E.L.F. Essential Primer Eyeshadow

Taking a note from fellow brands like Covergirl and Too Faced, E.L.F. has introduced an Essential Primer Eyeshadow that acts as both a primer and a color cream eyeshadow.

I’m always terribly confused by products like this. Are they meaning for it to be a cream eyeshadow with a built in primer so that shadow lasts all day? Or are they meant to be used with shadow on top, which kinda defeats the purpose of a color base wouldn’t you agree?

Either way these are cheap as chips and could prove nice for the cream eyeshadow fans out there.

E.L.F. Essential Primer Eyeshadow promises a rich eyeshadow color formula that has a built-in primer for long-lasting wear. Well at least they defined the product well as Covergirl kinda doesn’t!


  • Coco Loco
  • Sultry Satin
  • Misty Mauve
  • Sexy Silver

I find the shade selection a little weak. Give me a few more natural shades and I’d be inclined to indulge.

What about you?

Available now for $2 each at www.eyeslipsface.com

P.S. I’m busy catching up True Blood. Looks like another lame-o season! I found myself falling asleep on an episode or two.

What do you think?

But at least Lala is still as fabulous as every! I love me a Hawk on a man but I’m happy he did away with his, I wasn’t feeling it last year.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I probably won’t go out of my way to get these from the website, but if they ever pop up at Target I would get them all but the silver!

    As for True Blood I devoured all the books and the first several seasons but I haven’t even bothered watching the last 2. What a waste.

    • the Muse

      aw sorry tam, you aren’t missing much though, it kinda went off the tracks!

      • Tammie

        Yeah, that’s why I haven’t even watched one episode haha. I was hoping people would say that this season was back on track but no dice…oh well~.

        • the Muse

          no way…it gets more boring imho! the story lines are off the track imho!

          • Tammie

            I wish they’d get their s**t together, I really want to watch more Erik, but I feel like the show is really unwatchable >.>;;.

          • the Muse

            they show erik a lot but they also have all these smaller plots that I’m terribly uninterested in!

          • Tammie

            I just don’t think I can sit through all the junk to get to the Erik bits haha. I’ll just have to be content with seeing gifs on tumblr xD

    High-as-a-kite-Bill getting a piggy back ride from high-as-a-kite-Eric? Epic.

    Also, I don’t mind colored bases, but they’re tricky because too much color in the base ‘swallows’ the color you put on top. And those four colors are just odd choices to me.

      ooo I’m behind haven’t gotten to that yet carrie ;-D me too, not into the shades at all :-/

  • Angieluv

    Oh, Lala is so cute! I am never going to look at another ELF product again without hearing him say “Bitch Please…”.

  • Cindy

    I can NOT agree with you more on this season of True Blood! It is SOO boring! If it wasn’t for Lafayette calling someone a hooker every once in a while, I don’t know if I could stomach watching this season. TB has jumped the shark in my opinion!

    • the Muse

      *nods* past three reasons (counting this one) is really boring…! just not that great at all.

    I have the Sultry Satin and I love it…quick and easy for daily wear, doesn`t crease, wears all day. I have also used a powder shadow on top and it looks good that way also. Gotta love the price too!
