How to Use
Rated 4.14 out of 5 stars
This primer not only works, but give my skin a dewy glow that I love. My makeup stays where it needs to.
I have been using this for a bit and wanted to give it a fair chance before reviewing.
It comes in the same type of packaging as the poreless putty primer, which is my daily primer. This primer, however, is much more pliable and a soft yellowish color. You don't need a large amount and it does a fantastic job of priming your face and making your makeup last throughout the day. The only drawback, and this is what dropped it to a 2 star for me, is the glitter. I looked like a certain vampire when I went out in the sun. I tried using a heavier foundation but still had glitter all over my face. I absolutely love this primer for the hydration and luminosity. If they can reformulate to eliminate the glitter I will recommend. Until then this is a pass unless you really want to sparkle.

It looks beautiful on bare skin before makeup, but it's definitely a product you can also use after your skincare routine during makeup free days, especially on the eye area it looks so plumping and glowy and skin appears very moisturized. Might be my favorite primer! Definitely will repurchase once mine is finished.

I've used up this product but I don't like it. Stings a little, too glittery

this is an okay primer. doesn't do anything for the pores. it has TONS of glitter in it. not meant for people with textured skin.

I really liked how luminous my face looked with this primer but my foundation looked so bumpy! The cons outweigh the pros, I wouldn't recommend.

does not really hydrate at all. Has TONS of glitter through it. its fine glitter so you can't feel it but you can see it. not for textured dry skin.

I bought this a month ago and love it. I have already ordered more. It is easy to apply and feels great on my skin and looks great under my foundation.

I picked this primer up because I love the pore primer so much. This one is just as nice. I use them together and love how it holds my makeup in place but also give this area a glow.

I'm not even finished putting on my makeup. I had to stop and write this. I just got the Luminous Putty Primer yesterday and I'm using it for the first time today. I've been a loooong time user of e.l.f. poreless face primer and decided to try this. I also bought the putty primer applicator. My foundation looks SO much more natural using this primer. Nothing against the other primer but this one for me is FAR superior and just works better with the look I'm trying to accomplish. Bravo!

I don't see any sparkles or anything luminious in the primer. It feels like a regular ole primer to me. Nothing to write home about. I bought in the 3 back so hopefully the others are better.

Best setting powder and isn't expensive I have bought more expensive and they cake up

I absolutely love this putty primer!! It gives my face a radiant glow and feels lightweight. It does not take much product to cover the entire face! It looks great as just a moisturizer without makeup over it. It held my makeup on place all night and left my skin feeling amazingly hydrated. My pores and fine lines disappeared and I'm so happy I found this product! This is my holy trail primer and a must have! This stuff is e.l.f.ing amazing!!

Try something else. I thought the compact would be a better change from a bottle but I'm going back to the bottle. ELF makes a pump primer.

ok i didn't realize the luminous part meant that there were sparkly bits i just wanted not-mattifying. tbh i didn't even notice until, a month into use, i applied this with the lights on. very subtle sparkle. very good primer

I've been using this primer for a couple of months now. I really like the texture and the golden color of the product. I feel good knowing that there are beneficial ingredients in the primer.

It does not conceal as well as the poreless but it does have a nice glow to it. it goes on well and I use them together with this above my eyes and as a highlighter

Use before applying makeup. Skin feels soft and keeps skin hydrated all day

This primer provides a nice, smooth base and gives a gorgeous natural glow! It does not feel as thick on the face as the regular putty primer, but I like that because the regular putty primer is almost a little too thick. It also is not drying at all (I have super dry skin).
KimofCoventry from Rhode Island
I love how easy this goes on, the feel of it and the glow I get. I use a brush to apply. I never really used primer until the last yr or so. I finally got with the fact of needing a good base for a nice finish. I will buy this again. Cruelty Free products don't have to be expensive and they work.
Bdgerfan from undisclosed
Love this primer as it gives me a natural shimmer under my foundation. Light weight and easy to apply. Do let it set for about 30 seconds before applying foundations or blush. Planning on wearing just this primer with a little blush this summer for a natural glow.
Marla from Maryland
I'll start off by saying there is definitely glitter in this product. I thought it would be good for dry skin, but I don't really think it does anything. I don't think it makes me skin look worse... but it doesn't really make my makeup look better either. Overall, just a meh product.
Gigiof2 from Coast of Texas
This primer will give you the most beautiful dewy face. I use it in conjunction with a few drops of cc camo mixed with elf's coconut moisturizer. You will love this. I also love that it is silicone free. Some days I just use this and moisturizer. Add a little mascara and lip gloss and a beautiful look also. Don't spend $$$$$ on other brands buy this and you will be hooked. Thank you elf
