This primer is really great. I bought it because the price was so low. However, I just noticed that the price has exactly doubled since I purchased this item last month! What a rip off!

It works great though. I put it on right before I apply my bare minerals powder and it makes the makeup go on smoother and stay on longer. I don't know if I will purchase it at the inflated price though. Seems like a shady practice to get people to like a produce and then jack up the price. I did not buy it on sale.

This product is priced much more reasonably than other primer brands, and since I was new to using primer, I thought it would be a good idea to go with a good value option. I have somewhat oily skin, and I found that my skin seemed extra oily by the end of the day when using this product.

Comments about e.l.f. Studio Mineral Infused Face Primer, .49 oz:

It's awesome when you first open the bottle and it goes on smooth. But after a few applications, the product turns gritty and I can't apply it on my skin very well. Plus, the pump is terrible and I have to unscrew it to get out the product with a Q-Tip. I tried several different bottles to five it the benefit of the doubt but it was a consistent product. So I finally gave up and went back to Bare Minerals Primetime at a much heftier price. But I was throwing away most of the ELF primer so it was a waste anyway.

    Comments about e.l.f. Studio Mineral Infused Face Primer, .49 oz:

    The pump doesn't work at all. I had to unscrew it completely from the bottle and then use a q-tip to get it out. Once I got the product out, I really liked the way it worked with my foundation. However, I can see the application being super annoying over time. They need to fix that pump.

      It's a great price, but it's a clear serum and it feels greasy and doesn't have the best scent. HUGE difference from Smashbox primer. Spend an extra $5 and at least go for a better drugstore brand primer if you're not willing to pay for Smashbox (I'm certainly not!)

        Comments about e.l.f. Studio Mineral Infused Face Primer, .49 oz:

        This is a great product but VERY SMALL amount in the bottle- I opened it up and there it was less than half full in a brand new bottle! It doesn't last long with such a small amount- buy two bottles at a time or you're going to have to order it frequently. The pumps do not work well at all- I always end up taking off the pump and using a popsicle stick to get it out! Please improve the pump!!!

        I generally like ELF products, I'm not sure this primer does anything. The pump broke the second time I used it, so I had to use a Qtip to get the product out. For a couple dollars more, I'd use the Revlon primer again. . . the pump actually worked for me on that one.

          This primer goes on so smooth and feels like velvet on your skin. It helps foundation to go on evenly and so easy. I only gave this product four stars because the pump bottle is annoying. Sometimes it is vvery hard to get the primer out. The company need to fix this issue.

            I knew that elf had re released this primer with a new airless pump but i didn't think that drugstore was going to have it so soon. This primer is good it's clear makes my makeup go on smoothly the only thing that made me not want to repurchase was the old pump but now I can't see a reason why I wouldn't repurchase!

            Comments about e.l.f. Studio Mineral Infused Face Primer, .49 oz:

            I typically use a high end primer, however with this tough economy I decided to try a cheaper version and that's when I found this one. I can honestly say the texture and consistancy is extremly similar to the expensive brand I normally buy. Unfortunately the pump is horrible, it usually never works and when it does it shoots all over the place! So I just unscrew the top and take it out that way. I would buy again though.

            The primer goes on easily and dries quickly with no residue. My compact makeup goes on more smoothly over it than over my bare face, or my previous primer. However, the little pump bottles it comes in have disappointed me. My first bottle was apparently empty after only two uses, and my current one hardly dispenses at all. I would definitely keep buying it if they would fix the pump.

              Comments about e.l.f. Studio Mineral Infused Face Primer, .49 oz:

              I've used other primers in the past (Too Faced and L'oreal Studio Magic) and this is not my favorite. I was hoping for a less expensive alternative to the other good brands. While it does make my skin feel silky smooth and my makeup looks good over it, it doesn't seem to work quite as well as the other two I mentioned. It did not feel greasy or have a bad smell and best of all, I did not have any breakouts.

              I would still recommend it too the budget conscience, however.

              The biggest downside is the pump. It only works half the time and is very irritating.
