Great, but not the best for sensitive skin...

By Nora Elizabeth

Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Blemish Control Primer:

After buying this, I kept everything in my routine the same, but now with this primer. It's a WONDERFUL primer, but it's also how I found that my skin is incredibly sensitive. With it, my makeup lasted all day with no need of touch ups, but after taking my makeup off at the end of the day I would have a few bumps. I was okay with it at first, I assumed it was just my skin acting up because it wasn't used to it yet or because it was around the time for my period. Further on into using however, my acne became worse and worse (coming from mostly clear skin to all around my jaw being littered with large, painful bumps that I couldn't pop). I would fully recommend if you don't have problems with sensitive skin or severe acne, otherwise I would look for something else.

    This is great for preventing breakouts and when I have any skin irritations (i'm allergic to everything). It does not help hide pores, or do anything for my oily skin (nothing does).

        I use this primer everyday before I head out to class! It stays on all day and helps make my concealer/foundation look better. I do have oily skin and am prone to breakouts and I find that this primer helps reduce the amount of breakouts when I wear makeup.

              This product was very STICKY. It felt like it left a residue on my skin and was harder to apply foundation.

                Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Blemish Control Primer:

                this is such a good primer I use it under and without make up. It clears my skin and keeps it from being an oily mess at the end of the day. I love it . I highly recommend it to everyone who has super super oily skin like I do and also lots of breakouts bc it really does control it.

                I put the primer on before I contour just as a base. It doesn't really smooth out the skin though.

                The best one I've had so far

                By vermelon

                from Indiana

                Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Blemish Control Primer:

                I am obsessed about this primer. While I was using it, I didn't have one breakout. Usually, when I wear a full face of makeup, I get breakouts, but this primer kept my skin clear. I am removing one star because there is such a small amount of primer in the pump. It ran out fairly quickly, which is disappointing

                  I've spent years looking for a blemish control that actually works for my skin, oily, sensitive and with occasional breakouts. Since using this product for about two weeks, my face is less oily looking throughout the day, more matte. No breakouts and even feels softer, cleaner.
