Review: ELF - Mineral Face Primer

ELF-eyes-lips-face-mineral-infused-face-primer-review-new-packaging-enigmatic-ramblesELF-eyes-lips-face-mineral-infused-face-primer-review-new-packaging-enigmatic-ramblesI have already reviewed this product way back in 2011, and I still stand by that review. Reason for this updated review is because since then ELF have changed their packaging for the Mineral Infused Face Primer which is a gigantic improvement. I want to preface this review with a reminder that I have combination skin.

ELF-eyes-lips-face-mineral-infused-face-primer-review-new-packaging-enigmatic-rambles"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" - ELF UK website

The first thing you notice with this product is that you don't need very much at all. One and a half pumps of the gel is enough for me. I rub it over my face and wait for about a minute before moving on to applying my foundation.

For me it really does smooth my skin and help the application of foundation, and I find I use less when I use this. It helps stop the foundation from clinging to any little dry patches I may have as well as helping to keep the make up on all day. My t-zone is prone to shine and with this I find it prolongs the time between powdering.

Now the problem with the old packaging meant that you really struggled to use all of the product, I would say you ran in to difficulties after using 1/3 of it which was very frustrating. However this is in an airless pump  bottle which means you can use every last bit of the product without having to hack at the packaging with a hammer and a saw.... okay so I don't like to waste anything!
