      I have heard amazing things about ELF, but this primer is not one of those amazing things. It is so greasy and didn't allow the multiple brands of foundation I tried it with to dry down. I will be returning it.

        Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Hydrating Face Primer:

        I was looking for a cheap primer that would do its job. This primer feels very gross and oily when applied and makes your face look greasy. I have somewhat oily skin but this primer makes my skin feel extremely oily and dirty.

        Greasy Mess

        By Hailey

        from Rochester, MN

        Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Hydrating Face Primer:

        I had purchased this a while back and was really excited to try it. As soon as I pumped a little on my hand it felt light I was taking oil and rubbing it on my face and hands. I will never buy it again.

          Put myself on a makeup budget so when I ran out of my usual primer I googled a few cheaper brands Nd this among other others showed up in the top 10. Didn't disappoint!

          Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Hydrating Face Primer:

          I have fairly dry skin so I saw "hydrating" and got excited. This primer actually dried out my skin and was very silicone feeling which is the opposite of what I wanted. Will NOT buy again

            Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Hydrating Face Primer:

            I don't know why elf promotes this as a hydrating primer. If you look at the ingredients, its literally silicone and oil. Thats it. When I purchased this, I pumped some on to my hand and immediately decided to return it. I wanted a hydrating primer, not a silicone primer mislabelled as a hydrating primer.

            Not my favorite...

            By Jes23

            from Blair, WI, United States

            Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Hydrating Face Primer:

            I have dry skin, so when e.l.f. came out with these I was excited to try them. However, it was very greasy on my face, my hands... it also made my foundation separate on my nose. It did feel slightly hydrating though.

            Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Hydrating Face Primer:

            I've tired all the elf primers and this is the one worked well for me. Helped with dry spots and hydrate the skin.
