    I did not like this product at all, I experienced extreme breakouts all over my face and I found that it didn't work well at all. I won't waste my money on this product ever again

        This product is not good at all!!! I wore this one day for maybe three hours and it separated all over my face and for some reason my foundation did not dry down like it does on top of my everyday primer it was a very greasy product and even though I only for it for a short amount of time it broke my face out horribly and I just now got my skin looking semi better almost a month later and yes I read the ingredients there was nothing I was allergic to in this primer

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

          It's more of a blemish control type of thing and definitely blurs pores, but I cannot get over how awful this product smells. It also kind of leaves a greasy film on the skin.

              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.

                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.

                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!

                  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
