        Incredibly greasy and oily! It says hydrating, but it is just heavy, oily, and no coverage AT ALL.

        What are we paying for?

        By ESI

        from Wisconsin

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

        Product deception is so disrespectful! Unscrewed the pump, as I thought it wasn't working. Found out there's a small bottle inside that is only about 1/4 the size of the bottle deep. Go ahead, try it. Take it apart and stick a cotton swab down inside.

        No, I will not buy again.

        Pretty nice

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

        I bought this a couple of months ago as a first-time primer user. Since I have no other experiences with primers, I don't necessarily have anything else to compare it to. However I was able to pick out some features of this primer that I liked and could get improvements in. Some positives: nice consistency-it felt nice on my face, wasn't too thick, clear- in the photo the product looks white but it is indeed a creamy clear, easy to pump out/spread- again, this might go along with consistency. Some Negatives: amount- I'm not sure how much is in this container compared to the large container, and I'm also not sure how long a primer is supposed to last, but I used it consecutively for about a month and a half before I had to take it apart and salvage it for that extra product. That being said, it's about $48 a year on primer alone. Not that bad, but depends on your budget. The next negative is the hydration. My skin is mostly dry, and when it grabs the moisture it turns greasy in some noticeable areas like the sides of my nose, and my forehead. This primer did not help me with skin hydration if I used it alone. I noticed that my skin started to peel after only a couple of hours. I would definitely recommend to put on a *strong* moisturizer before putting this on, (but of course it all depends on your skin type).

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

        This product works well underneath my bare minerals barepro performance wear foundation. I haven't tried it underneath any other foundations yet. It applies a little greasy, so I tend to blot my face a tad when I use it. I only apply this on my nose, cheekbones, and forehead for that extra glow. It doesn't protect your skin from the makeup that much, my skin broke out after using it the first couple of times
