Waste of my money

By Allison

from Hayden, Idaho

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

I wanted a cheap and good primer unfortunately this one was really bad! I have oily T-zone and it just did a bad job everywhere on my face. It did NOT work well with other products and it was really thick and it made my face feel caked. Oh and it was also very oily so I do not recommend!

      Perfect for my extremely dry skin! Not for oily!

      By Smith

      from Mobile, Al

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

      I bought this primer because I have extremely dry skin and I was looking for a nice hydrating drug store primer. I have no clue what it is, but ever since I started using this primer and the Smashbox Primer Water (which I just recently repurchased after the 21 days of beauty sale) my foundation has looked FLAWLESS! It's crazy! I went from having horrible dry patches and literally looking crusty lmao to looking super luminous and healthy! It is pretty oily so I wouldn't recommend for anyone other than dry skin.

      It works alright. I don't feel like its great at holding my makeup in place. I have very dry skin but this like everyone says just feels oily. If my skin wasn't so dry with eczema is just opt out but since I already have it in gonna finish it and just try another primer next time

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

        Well to start off, I have oily skin so I probably shouldn't have grabbed this. It honestly feels like I'm adding more oil to my skin, it's very very greasy. I would have to wipe some of it off of my face, a little goes a long way with this product. I would have to apply the SMALLEST amount possible, so my face wouldn't get more oily. This product is definitely for people with severely dry skin because this product seems too greasy for regular dry skin if that makes any sense lol. The price is great and that's why I love elf, but this was a miss for me.

        Best Uses

        • Dry skin

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

        Okay, this primer doesn't work for me. My personal experience was that it is too greasy like making it seem like I was putting oil on my face. It caused some breakouts on my face but I admit I have oily skin. IThis is a primer for a person who has dry to extreme dry skin. I can not say anything about the longevity or if it works technically because I was not able to truly leave it on my skin for long. Pick this up if you have dry skin.

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

          I actually picked this up at the drugstore, on a whim, because my VERY EXPENSIVE Dior primer was not blending well with my foundation. It ended up flaking, and my skin is already dry/sensitive. Anyway, this actually works much better than the fancypants Dior primer, and it looks more natural. No flaking. I'm not sure how hydrating it is, but again - no flakes or patches, and my sensitive skin didn't freak out.
