      The worst. It leaves a greasy film and does NOTHING for you're dry skin... almost makes it worse. Makes you're make up look bad.

      Whipped Vaseline: Greasy and Destroys Makeup

      By Adriana

      from San Antonio, TX

      Pros

      • Natural Looking

      Cons

      • Greasy
      • Heavy
      • Ineffective

      Best Uses

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

        I have very dry skin, especially on my nose. After seeing reviews I thought this would be a miracle product. Far from it. Its like whipped Vaseline. One pump and it covers your whole face, neck, and somehow even the lips. Like a grease film. Yuck... After I finish doing my makeup, even after applying powder and setting spray, THIS primer makes my makeup SLIDE around. I can take my finger and literally wipe away my entire eyebrow or eyeliner from how greasy this product is. I shouldn't be afraid of wiping off my makeup in the middle of the day by accident; especially when before I used this my makeup would be bulletproof stuck on my face. I'll stick to applying eczema lotion to my face every night before bed., that alone works okay for me. I'm just sad that I had hopes for this product when ELF is usually amazing beyond expectations.

        Not for sensitive skin

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

          My skin is allergic to a lot of products. If you have sensitive skin like me, be careful! The first time I used this product it was perfect. It was silly smooth. Then the next time I used it, my face got swollen and red and it burned so bad.

          • Summer time use

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

          At first when I used this product I hated it. It made my skin look wet but now that's it's summer I decided to give it another try. Instead of using a dime size like suggested, I only used less than a pea size and applied with my fingers and instead of wet skin, I got hydrated young looking skin. I now use this every time I wear makeup and I absolutely love it.

          gives you a "Dewey" look

          By Kira

          from San Bernardino

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

          So I used this and it lasted all day. I have really dry skin and this kept it hydrated. My co-workers even told me my face looked really healthy and hydrated. Some even said out gave me the "Dewey" look.

          Wonderful under makeup

          By Patt04824

          from Fort Worth, TX, United States

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

          I have been using this for over a year and have an answer to the "greasy" problem. You ladies are using too much. I use a dot of product the size of a bb on my forehead, and the same amount on each cheek. This is like using silicon instead of oil. It is slicker and you need less. It is also the reason it is a great value! It is especially good tp use under the long wearing, high coverage foundations that will cover rosecea, and blothy skin tones. Hope this is helpful.

          Eh

          By conspiracysiri

          from Undisclosed

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

          I got this in a bundle. I always wanted to try an Elf primer with the great reviews, however, I didn't think it was worth it since it is only half an once. This does hydrate and makes my skin feel smooth, however, it has a really strange chemical smell (and product smells don't usually bother me). I also found that while using this my makeup faded much faster than all other primers I've used (Maybelline, Avon, NYC, Nivea aftershave), although I know that prolonging makeup longevity isn't a claim this makes. It isn't the worst primer ever, but this doesn't really suit my needs.

          Not thrilled.

          By Yukihana

          from AZ

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

          It is just okay. I've had it for a couple of months and I try to use it everyday before my makeup. Sometimes, I end up using a different primer. Why? Because this one feels oily, it does not feel in pores or creates a smooth surface. Is it hydrating? Yeah. It holds make up decently, but not too empressed. For someone with dry skin as mine this would be great, other than that, I would not recomend it.

          Dreadful product in nice packaging

          By Juvmonkey

          from Adelaide, South Australia, Australia

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

          I'm 46 with dry skin, been wearing make up for 30+ years, most days. The formula made my foundation look awful, it just sat on my skin, like when you mix oil with water. I love ELF but this stuff is terrible. Shame though, as it was a good price and the packaging is beautiful.

            A good inexpensive primer. Very silky, lightweight texture. You don't need a full pump at all - a little goes a very long way. It helps foundation adhere quite well when applied sparingly and allowed to dry for about 10 minutes. Keeps my skin looking dewy for hours.
