e.l.f. Mineral Face Primer

About this product(from e.l.f.):

"Transform your face into a flawless and smooth canvas with the Mineral Infused Face Primer. Developed to combat against excess oil, flaky dryness, enlarged pores and fine lines. This clear multipurpose skin primer will prepare your skin so makeup goes on evenly for a long lasting satin finish."

My Review:
I've heard some mixed reviews on this product, but for me, it's amazing. My makeup seriously lasts for hours without ever having to touch up. It doesn't dry my skin or make it any more oily. I do have combination skin and it balances it out, allowing my makeup to wear evenly on my dry, normal, and oily areas. And $6? Um...I LOVE it.

I will say though, that the packaging is a major failure. I've had 3 bottles of this so far and on all three, the pump has stopped working and the plastic tube on the inside that draws the product up to the pump has also broken. I end up having to twist the pump off and scoop the primer out with the end of a brush. Terrible. It's a major downfall in my opinion...the primer works SO well though.

My goodness though...e.l.f. PLEASE change the packaging to a squeeze tube!

yes I know what you mean about the packaging! It's not good at all! and after just 4 uses my sis had to re-purchase the product. The texture is nice though.

@xXMaNdAXx: Yes! I know! I get more than 4 uses but still...not many. I think that if they changed the packaging we'd get more out of it. Plus, the bottle/pump thingie must cost more than a squeeze tube. If they changed over, maybe they could give more product.

Silverstargirl: You can use it under a powder too! :)

Wow you took the words out of my mouth! i absolutely love this product as well but was ver disappointed when i realised after about 3 or 4 uses, i wasnt getting anything from the pump. But i love it nonetheless! Great review!!

I've noticed that alot of my elf items are great, but the only negative thing is the packaging! Really bulky and just unnecessary. I really need to try this primer! Great post :)

I've been wondering if this was any good. Thanks for the review---I think I'll wait for them to change the packaging though.

@Lisa: I haven't ever seen this at Target either unfortunately. I have to order it online from the e.l.f. website which is kinda cool because they ALWAYS have 50% off sales.

@everyone else: Yeah...the packaging is bad :/ It's the only reason I'd look for another primer but I love it SO much. But...I might have to change over since the packaging makes it kind of a waste of money :/

I love this primer too, but yeah the packaging is a failure! Many people have wrote on elf's page on facebook that they should replace it with a squeezy tube, I hope Elf will listen :)
