I purchased the ELF face primer about a month ago and thought I'd share some thoughts with you. To be honest I'd never really used a face prmer before so I don't have anything to compare it to. I ordered it from http://www.eyeslipsface.co.uk/ and it cost £6 for 14g.
Firstly the packaging. I think the packaging is very nice. It's in a white tube with a clear plastic outer package and it comes with a pump. I like this simple packaging. I think it looks very clean.
The product itself is a clear gel. It has a smell to it that I don't know how to describe. It's kind of plastic-y. I don't think the smell is completely unbearable but not something I enjoy rubbing on my face. Once it's dried in however, I can't smell anything.
The primer itself rubs in very quicky and leaves your face feeling beautifully soft and smooth. It leaves a bit of a greasy residue for a few minutes until it's soaked in so I wouldn't recommend putting your foundation on straight away - I'd leave it a minute or two to absorb.
I noticed that my make up did go on a bit smoother and even but if I am completely honest, I did not notice my make up lasting any longer than ususal. As I said I have not used any other primers so I don't know if I was expecting too much or if this product is falling a bit flat. Can any of you readers enlighten me? Have you tried this? Or can you recommend a wonder primer? Hope so...
