The basic step of makeup is to use a primer which helps to make a barrier between skin and foundation so that foundation keep intact. There are different primers available in the market from drugstore to high end according to your skin concerns. E.l.f cosmetics have a good range of different primers. Today I will be reviewing e.l.f mineral infused primer.
It comes in a cloudy glass bottle with a pump. Pump makes it easy to get desired amount. Lid is clear plastic which open and close smoothly. Glass feels thick and strong. Overall packaging is sturdy and I have no issue with it’s packaging.
I was looking for a good pocket friendly primer about two years ago and read many reviews of e.l.f makeup poreless and mineral infused primer but did not satisfied so that changed my mind. Then early this year i had used my cousin sister’s e.l.f mineral infused primer and got impressed. Then I ordered mine.
This is a clear silicone base primer. I always rub a tiny drop of primer by lightly pressing the pump to get little amount onto my fingers and then apply all over my face in a dabbing motion focusing on the areas where I have open pores. It has a silky velvety texture. You only need a bit of it to cover your entire face. As it is a silicone base primer that’s why it is extremely smooth and soft. It does make the skin feels smooth. It make your foundation look natural and keeps the cake-y look at bay. It also does fill up the pores 35% to 40% as I believe no primer will fills your pores 100% but still it does make a difference. It makes my foundation intact for good decent hours even in summers. It feels so light on skin like nothing on face. It never made my skin more oily as I had heard in e.l.f primer review which I am really happy about it but sometimes you feel oil in humid weather.
It has no fragrance. It never breaks me out. I heard in some reviews that it has a very little quantity but I am not agree because it has much a lot of quantity as I am using this for quite long now.
It is not a best primer but a good quality primer in such a price. Next I want to try e.l.f poreless face primer once I finish this one.
