Elf mineral infused face primer

Thursday, 13 September 2012


Recently using a face primer has become very important in my make up routine! Since falling in love with the very expensive porefessional I thought I ought to find myself a cheaper alternative that won't break the bank. 

Now unfortunately Elf's primer is nothing on the porefessional, but I wasn't ever expecting it to be! However, It does leave a similar feel on my skin, literally like velvet! As for pores, I don't find that they look much different, a little smaller I guess, but my face in general does look smoother and hydrated when I do use this! It leaves a matte finish on the skin which to me is a perfect base for smooth foundation application, especially if you have oily skin!

As for making my make up last longer I do find that it helps a little. However, it's not drastic! I do find that using a primer will help compared to using nothing at all, as well as making sure your face is well moisturised and set using either a powder or setting spray! 

What primer do you use?

  1. Oooh, I like the packaging on this! I don't really need to use primer as my Estee Lauder Double Wear takes a lot to budge, but if I really need it I use the Vivo one. That feels very velvety too, I think it's the silicone in it :) xx

    1. this isn't oily at all, so it's worth a try :) although it's not as good for pores as the porefessional is x

  6. The Look Beauty primer seems very similar to this, same consistency and really helps keep my makeup in place for a fraction of the price! x
