This is perfect for the price. First primer i have tried this cheap and works really well. makeup applies without any effort and did not budge for an entire day with me sweating and walking outdoors. I just love this so much. i cant live without this primer :)
Great cheap primer. Sits nicely on the skin, not too greasy and does not make skin feel oily. Would have liked a bit more product but for the price it is not that big of a deal. Would be great for everyday use. No horrid smell and keeps foundation in place and helps skin look flawless when makeup is finished. I personally use a face cream, primer, then foundation and it works great.
OK so far i'm loving this. I put it on after my moisturizer with spf. Use VERY little. Two tiny dots will cover your entire face. Made my makeup go on seamlessly and smoothly. Doesn't feel greasy or heavy. I have to get REALLY close to the mirror to actually see my pores at all otherwise they dissapear. Cheap price - $6 at Target. I gotta say, it's better than expensive brands like Clinique which is heavy like a mask and gets greasy in 10 minutes.
I'll update as the day wears on. But for now, it's a winner!
Nice primer, great price. This primer works as well as any other I've tried, has very smooth feel. Foundation and concealer glide on effortlessly and stay put without creasing. Some oil buildup shows through, but not much. My main criticism is that it made my skin itchy (maybe the mica?) and is very, very sparkly. I mean copper glitter super-sparkly and very noticeable. Not a problem if you want a lot of radiance and bling, but for me it looked artificial and not like a natural glow, too garish and glittery for everyday wear.
I absolutely live this primer, I wear it with revlon color stay foundation, rimmel stay matte(on my T-zone), and elf setting spray, my makeup lasts seriously all day. I still have to touch up once around 4, but that's ok. I also use this as my eyeshadow primer and there's no more midday creasing. I only gave this four in overall rating because it doesn't help with large pores too much, definitely a difference, but if you have major large pores you might want to go for nyx pore filler instead. But this primer is worth a try since it only costs $3. It also doesn't break me out, which is hard to find in a primer for me.
I can't be sure, but I think this product is breaking me out. It feels greasy and I'm not sure if it really has any positive effect.
You have to understand - I'm a primer junkie. I've literally tried them all: Paula Dorf, Smashbox, Mary Kay, Studio Gear, DHC, Victoria's Secret - the list goes on) . The last primer I'd tried was Victoria's Secret (okay, but I wouldn't re-purchase), and I'd run out. While I was searching for a new replacement to try, I stumbled across a review for E.L.F.'s mineral infused primer, read the price (!), and thought, why not? I ordered it, and received it within a few days.
This comes in a pump that doles out a pre-determined amount of primer and the pump works well. The primer itself glides on easily, and provides a minimal amount of blurring to fine lines and pores. It's very blendable, and unlike some other primers, does NOT clash with my moisturizer and turn into a balled up, nasty mess. I purchased this in clear, and sometimes add a few drops of a BB cream, mix, and apply both to my face simultaneously so I have some light color coverage with my primer.
The primer allows my concealer to glide on and blend easily. I have super oily skin (both a blessing and a curse), and between way too much shine and makeup sliding off of my face, I've been on a mission to find a primer that will mattify, absorb oil, blur imperfections, and extend the life of my makeup. This isn't a home run (I'm still searching!), but for every day wear, and the price point, it's pretty darn close. I've already re-ordered two more bottles, and will keep this on hand for every day use. I'll save the more expensive primers for special occassions, and continue to use this as a daily staple.
I got tiny little bumps every time I used this. My skin is not particularly sensitive but it didn't like this.
I really like this primer. it goes on smooth and makes my skin feel baby soft. my liquid foundation blends over this perfectly. around my nose I usually get 'cracks' in my foundation and this primer completely stops that from happening. I wish it came in tinted colors but its not a biggie. for 6 bucks, I'd definitely repurchase.
My face felt smooth but I felt like there was too much silicone. After I applied it the product would come off as it dried. There's not enough either
