The Elf C-Bright Putty Primer is a flanker of their popular product, the Putty Primer. The Elf C-Bright Putty Primer claims to brighten and even out the skin with 2% Vitamin C. This primer states that it grips the makeup to provide a long-lasting wear. I am a fan of primers that are created to "grip" the makeup because I don't like to touch up makeup throughout the day. Personally, I have normal to dry skin, so I was excited to try out this product. Upon first application, I warmed the putty primer in my hands before patting it into my face. After patting the primer into my skin, I let it set for a minute. Then, I applied my favorite skin tint and continued with my normal makeup routine. At the end of the day, my makeup looked flawless. I didn't get shiny/greasy or have to touch up. I felt like makeup application was flawless, and all my products glided on smoothly. I didn't experience any irritation or breakouts. This product also doesn't have a scent, which I think is perfect for people with sensitive skin. I honestly love Elf products, and I believe that this product would be perfect for all skin-types—normal, dry, combo, oily. I loved using this product, the Elf C-Bright Putty Primer, and I would highly recommend this product to my family and friends.
I love how this primer glides on my skin. It brightens me while setting my pores up for makeup, even on long work days. I have to be on top of my skincare routine, especially in terms of preventative acne care, because this primer slowly breaks me out. I experience this mainly on my cheeks, but also on my forehead and a bit on my chin. I have to take extra care to double cleanse to minimize the acne. I've always dealt with acne, but I've maintained breakouts to be one or two pimples for the past two years. I have a love/hate relationship because my skin will look good at the moment. But I have to deal with my clogged pores after.

This gives my skin a nice glow. I wear it under my makeup, and it helps my makeup to last longer. No skin irritation.

I have gotten so many compliments on my makeup since using this product! My face looks like an airbrushed finish 10/10

I struggle with dryness around my nose and was looking for a primer that would help. This has. I tend to wear it even on no make up days apied after my cleanse and moisturise and this has helped my dry patches.

I first tried the C-Bright Putty Primer when I received a sample with an order. I loved it! This primer moisturizes and brightens my normal skin. I prefer the gripping primer under dewy makeup, while C-Bright is excellent under ELF's CC foundation and other foundations that are matte or have a natural finish. C-Bright's properties make it best for use in cooler weather for me, or while working indoors in air conditioning where my skin can get dry.

I don't feel like this did much for my skin. It does feel good going on (very cool and light) but I didn't see any noticeable difference in my skin. It didn't brighten my skin or "prime" it at all. I prefer the luminous primer to this one. I don't know - it may work great for other people, it just didn't do much for me.

I like it but don't know if I'll buy again. I need moisture, & this is slightly drier than I'd like. I like the luminous putty a lot better.

Good primer for acne prone skin that wants to be dewy. Has vitamin c that helps brighten scars and dark spots on the skin. Helps makeup last all day.

I don't put makeup on over it I just use it as is. I love the way it makes my skin feel hydrated and adds a healthy glow.

I really enjoyed using the OG putty primer and was excited to hear about the vitamin c version through a Robert Welsh video. I immediately hunted down this product. It has a nice brightening effect, but it's slippery and doesn't really stay in it's place.

Tried my sisters and loved it adding it to my wish list

works exactly like the Tatcha primer at a much better price

I have an oily forehead and this primer makes my forehead look extremely greasy, so I just set it with powder and it's fine after that.

I thought c-bright would be the same consistency as their original poreless putty primer but its not. It feels more like a balm so I felt it didn't really cover my pores like the original.

I bought this not to long ago and it applies super smoothly and works as a solid base for my makeup!
Rayana from Fairfax, VA
This is absolutely the worst primer I've ever used. I bought it for a trip and within 10 minutes of stepping out my foundation and concealer were creasing so extremely bad that I had to take my base off. I haven't creased this bad since I was a 14 year old who just started doing makeup. I have dry skin and it's definitely not for me.
Boomkattack from Maryland
I'd never used a putty primer so I wanted to give this a chance. I love the vitamin c in it since dark spots and hyperpigmentation are two of my skin care concerns. I absolutely love this primer, it feels like butter when applied, easy to use and my makeup goes on so smoothly with it. Using it is one of my favorite steps in my makeup routine, it feels so luxurious.
Rachel from Quakertown, PA
I have never used a putty primer before, but I was drawn to this because of the vitamin C. I have been using this for about 2 weeks now and I love it! It goes on smooth and creamy, makes my skin look fresh, and keeps my makeup in place all day. I'd use this even without foundation, most likely.
Kk Kapowski from Santa Rosa, CA
Love this primer. It goes on with a smooth, velvety finish. Not stick or tacky at all. It helps keep my makeup on all day and did not break me out or irritate my extremely sensitive skin.
Martie from California
I love this. Primers are usually so "iffy" but this one is perfect. It smells nice, blends well, builds well. I love it!!
Dazeey5623 from Wisconsin
Looking at the primer, I was afraid it would be too shimmery, but it really gives a nice glow. I don't use a lot of foundation, so it helps to even put my skin tone.
Great consistency going on, and no problems with piling under other projects. I love that it has the vitamin C I was looking for without applying another serum. Great primer with no negatives in my book.

I was gifted the primer originally and it transformed my everyday makeup to luxurious and clean. I ordered two more as I put it under my dark circles it really brightens and grabs the concealer to stay. Love it !!!

This primer goes on light and helps my foundation to last longer during the work day. This is the first primer I have ever used and love it! I use a brush to apply and goes on smooth. Leave it to set for 3-5 min and then put foundation over top. The supplement of vitamin C is a plus!
Kjazzy from GA
I'll stick with the original poreless Putty primer because it's a really good primer for hiding pores and not too oily or drying. This c primer has a weird consistency ino.
