Beauty Review: e.l.f Primer + GIVEAWAY

I have to tell you all about my latest make up find!  I was over browsing around on e.l.f one night and came across their mineral infused face primer while searching for something that would help my face appear more polished when wearing make up.  I read some of the reviews and decided to give it a try for the whopping six bucks that it would cost me. 

I got it pretty quickly (along with some other things I had ordered from e.l.f) and I was so excited to get the stuff, I decided to show you all.  Some of you may have seen this on IG a few weeks back.

This was a good mail day. :)

I was really excited to try it out and when I did, I was amazed at the results!  This stuff makes my face look like it did in my twenties!  (For those of you that remember, that is just a little over ten years ago.) I got so excited I told my best friend and she bought some and she loves it too!

You want to see what this primer can do?

This is before primer...
(Yea, see....face needs a little help...)

And....AFTER!


The results are staggering, right?  I think what I am most impressed with is that it hides all my redness!  I purchased the tone adjusting green when I ordered and it did exactly what it said it was going to do.  I love it!  For six bucks, you can't beat it!

It goes on like SILK!  You feel like you are massaging SILK into your FACE! It doesn't leave a weird residue and it works well with my foundation and powder, so no clumpy face here, just a smooth and flawless finish.

This primer from e.l.f comes in four shades:
  • Clear: Basic prep
  • Tone Adjusting Green: Minimizes redness and combats blotchy skin
  • Brightening Lavender: Good for uneven skin tones and to brighten dull or yellow tones
  • Radiant Glow: Helps to cover dark spots and uneven skin tones
Like I said, I got the green and it completely removes all the redness from my face. Before I started using the primer, when I would finish my make up, you could still see the redness under my foundation.  It drove me crazy.  I would see these girls walking around with porcelain doll faces and I would silently scream, "How do they DO that!?"

And now I feel like I have been let in on the biggest beauty secret in the world: face primer.

Did I mention you can also buy this at Target? ;) Yes. Go.  Go to the make up aisle at Target and pick you up a six dollar bottle of pure genius.

Or...If you are feeling lucky...

    1. Some of the reviews on the e.l.f website say that the primer is a MAC dupe. I have never used the MAC primer, so I don't know, but it was stated quite a few times, so, it may really be the best bang for your buck! Thanks for stopping by! I hope you entered the giveaway, too!

    1. Yes! Target has a good selection (at least they do in my neck of the woods) and every time I go to Target, I swing by the e.l.f section and stock up! They have some great stuff!

    1. Thank you Jazmine! e.l.f is a GREAT place to start if you are new to beauty products. They are super affordable and come in small amounts! Target carries the brand but you can also shop online at eyeslipsface.com

  12. I tried the clear mineral primer in the past and liked it actually more than smash box or benefit's porefessioal. I never tried the green one... Now I might have to.

    Thanks for the great review!
