e.l.f. Mineral Infused Face Primer (£7.50) is another terrific find within the vast panoply of beauty offerings from the inexpensive American brand e.l.f. (e.l.f. stands for eyes, lips, face).
Designed to combat against excess oil, flaky dryness, enlarged pores and fine lines, e.l.f. Mineral Infused Face Primer is one of four primers in the collection. While the others have specific aims – there’s Tone Adjusting Green which is the one to counter red skin, Brightening Lavender which is for uneven skin tones and Radiant Glow for creating “a luminizing effect” on dark spots and uneven skin tone – e.l.f. Mineral Infused Face Primer is more general in its target audience.
e.l.f. Mineral Infused Face Primer is a clear gel with a lovely balm-like texture. It feels as if it’s smoothing and soothing the skin as it is applied, and it instantly blurs fine lines and disguises pores. Once it’s been absorbed into the skin, foundation goes on like a dream – in fact, you might find that you need less than usual – and lasts pretty well.
I’m seriously impressed with e.l.f. Mineral Infused Face Primer and would certainly recommend it as the ideal primer for anyone who doesn’t have any particular skin issues, such as redness or uneven tone. It’s especially good for older skins or skins prone to dehydration or dryness as – unlike other primers which help to reduce shine – it is very gentle and comforting and not at all drying.
