      Not worth it

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

      It feels really greasy and not hydrating at all. It didnt really do anything to my skin. It just felt like I had put a layer of grease all over my face before foundation.

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

          I have very dry with large pores and fine lines around my eyes. When I saw this Hydrating Primer I was real excited to try it. I was beyond disappointed, and I just cannot figure out this product. First off it has a silicone-y lotion texture that smells like stale Crisco. I even checked for expiration. When I pumped it onto the back of my hand it began to "melt" with the heat of my hand. As I applied this to my face, it just felt like I was spreading thin vaseline all over my face. I waited a few minutes for it to sink in, but it doesn't. It just sits on top of the skin, and then causes your foundation to slide off. It's not good. Very disappointing considering the other primers are so good. Don't use this, try one of the other Elf primers or the Maybelline Baby Skin instead.

                  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

                    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.
