Primer has got to be the most underrated product in the makeup industry simply because a lot of people either don’t use it or don’t know what it is. I personally use a primer every single time I decide to do my makeup. Almost all primers work as a glue to help your foundation last longer on the skin. Some primers also have added skincare benefits and some help fill in fine lines and pores. The primer that I’m reviewing today is from the brand ELF Cosmetics and this has a color-correcting feature to it that helps even out the skin and reduce sallowness.
The primer itself comes in this lovely small frosted plastic tube that has a slight lilac color to it. It has a pump to dispense out the product and one pump provides enough product for the entire face.
The primer is purple in color and when it is applied onto the skin, it helps to brighten and perfect it. The purple color does not come through your foundation, so once your foundation is applied it looks completely normal.
Texture wise, the primer has a very silicone feel to it which might feel a bit greasy for those who have oily skin. With regards to dry skin, it does smooth out any areas that have dry patches on them. Price wise this primer retails for 7.95 euros and is available here in Ireland in Pennys & Mulligans Stores.
