The primer comes in a white tube holding 14g of product and it's inside a clear plastic bottle! It has a pump and a clear plastic cap! The packaging looks elegant and cute:
You would think that the primer is white, misleaded from the tube's color! It's actually a clear gel primer that looks like this:
Now let's see what Elf says about this product on their website and check if their claims are true:
Transform your face into a flawless and smooth canvas with the mineral Infused Face Primer. Developed to combat excess oil, flaky dryness, enlarged pores and fine lines to result in a natural and youthful looking radiance. This clear multipurpose skin primer will prepare your skin so makeup goes on evenly for a lasting finish.
This primer makes my skin really smooth, it's unbelievable and my foundation goes on a lot easier! It doesn't combat excess oil and enlarged pores that much, so that I would be thrilled! It does an average job on these 2 things, although combined with Revlon Colorstay Foundation it does an AMAZING job at controlling oil! I don't have any fine lines yet, so I can't comment on whether it reduces fine lines or not! I have to agree on the lasting finish though, I had a huge problem with my L'Oreal True Match Foundation staying on and now with this primer the lasting power of the foundation has improved a lot!! :)
I use almost a pump for my whole face, I warm it up a little bit between my fingers and then I apply it mostly on my t-zone and some on my cheeks! :) If you apply too much it feels greasy and your foundation slides right off! So, this bottle of 14g primer will last you a long time! :)
As much as I love this primer, I got 2 "problems" with it! The first one is the packaging! It's elegant and cute, but not very practical ! Since it's a gel and not a liquid product it sticks on the sides of the tube and after a while you think the tube is empty, although there's still a lot of product left! So, a squeezy tube would be ideal! :) My second problem with this primer is the smell.. it smells like oil! It doesn't put me off from using the primer, because I LOVE the results it gives, but the smell is something I could definitely do without! Thank God once it's on your face you can't smell it anymore!
So, overall I really like this primer! It makes my skin so smooth and my foundation apply much easier and stay on for much longer! :) You can get it here for £6.00, which is a very reasonable price! :)
