this is by far the best primer i have ever used and i have tried many, it leaves your skin silky and beautiful, i even wear it without my foundation when i want to go natural, this is truly an amaizing product, and will continue using this, i love it

staying power


i absolutely love this product, it's so smooth and easy to apply and it keeps my makeup intact all day long for 12 hours

- Walgreens User

i apply to my face after washing, moisturizing and toning, and apply my make up on afterwards and my makeup stays on all day

- Walgreens User



i love this primer, it is lightweight, long lasting, and leaves you skin looking and feeling soft and smooth

- Walgreens User

this has to one of the best primer's i have ever used, it's very light weight and soft

- Walgreens User

color correction

color correcting

as others have mentioned, if you are looking to lessen skin discoloration, like redness, you need to use this along side a color corrector

- Walgreens User

i love these primers, i've used both the green color correcting and the radiant glow orange

pore minimizing

pore minimizing

i'm so glad i finally tried this though because it blows the big name brand on tv out of the water in price, especially since i use less of elf's than of be's each application, smoothability when applying, helping to fill in/smooth my fine lines and pores (which is why we buy/use primer in the first place), and in an over-all natural look after i'm done applying my makeup

- Walgreens User

i often use it by itself, it makes my skin even toned and minimizes the pores

- Walgreens User



i love love love this as a primer in general because it keeps my makeup matte and is nice and tacky when you put it on and let it dry for a minute before putting on foundation

- Ulta User

i love this primer, it keeps my makeup on all day and it goes on gel like but dries to a matte nice finish

- Walgreens User

- Walgreens User

my skin was so dry that it made my skin peel

Glow-from-within skin!

I was looking for a primer that would add some radiance and glowiness to my makeup look and not cost a million dollars and the Radiant Glow primer is PERFECTION. I actually went to Target to re-buy the regular Mineral Infused primer (which I also love because it's a great dupe for Smash Box Photo Finish primer) but it was out of stock, so I ended up buying the Poreless Face Primer and the Radiant Glow. I wore both of them today, and 6 hours later, there's still no shine, I still have that "glow from within" look, and my makeup hasn't completely settled into my crater-sized pores on my cheeks. I like the consistency of both primers because they felt more creamy and less silicone-y than the Mineral Infused, which I like because it felt less heavy on my dry skin for summertime. I could immediately tell a difference after putting on the Poreless primer, my pores actually looked smoothed over. I layered the Radiant Glow on top and it has a VERY slight yellow cast on my chocolate complexion, but it's definitely more "radiant" and not just "shimmery", and once I put my foundation on with a beauty blender, my skin looked PERFECT. These are definitely new staple products.

Truly Deserves Full 5 Stars

I have been using ELF primers, and this green one specifically, from the moment it was released and it has worked perfectly! I have sensitive skin, redness, combo dry/oily skin, AND I don't really like wearing a lot of makeup...so this primer really met a lot of needs for me. It is light weight on the skin, definitely provides a smoothness to the touch and visually. I also feels that it improves the look of the skin, giving my skin a more youthful, fresh appearance. As others have mentioned, if you are looking to lessen skin discoloration, like redness, you need to use this along side a color corrector. BUT IT DOES WORK. In response to the size comments, the "small" is more than enough to last you...this is a PRIMER, you are only meant to use a small amount the prime the face for your foundation and other make up. I never go a day without my ELF Primer.

My Go to for Acne Control

TLDR; This is product rules and I highly recommend itI have sensitive combination skin and this is my go to moisturizer. While I know that's not its intention, I found that's how it works best for me.My whole face is acne prone, with my cheeks being as dry as sand/my nose is so oily you could grease your engine with it, so finding products that meet my needs for my whole face has been hard to say the least. Something that helps my oils will dry me out, and something that helps my dry skin tends to clog my nose pores. This Primer meets all my needs and helps keep my acne to a bare minimum.While I have found that it doesn't really help to keep my foundation on as a primer, it does make the perfect mixer for a tinted moisturizer that lasts all day and looks natural. I also just use it in the mornings and evenings after I wash my face and apply my serums.All in all, hands down this is on ride-or-die skincare list and I will buy it as long as Elf makes it. Less

Very drying

I really wanted to love this product- the price was good and it was easy to find in stores. Upon application, my skin felt really smooth and I was excited to see how it would work with my foundation. Unfortunately, it really didn't do anything. While it felt smooth...it did nothing for filling in lines, pores, wrinkles, etc. And at the end of the day my face felt SO dry. We're talking Sahara Desert dry. The second day was worse so I can't recommend this primer for people with normal skin. If you have super oily skin though, it may work

Holy Grail Primer!

This primer says that it controls oil, combats flaky dryness, and fills in large pores and wrinkles/fine lines. I don't have fine lines or wrinkles nor do I have oily skin; however, I do get OCCASIONAL dry flakes and I don't really see this doing anything for them, but this primer certainly doesn't make them look worse or accentuate them. That being said, I freakin' love this primer and use it every day before my foundation/BB Cream. I apply one pump on the back on my hand, dot it on my cheeks, nose, forehead and chin, then blend it out. It glides on like butter and makes my face feel so smooth! Just a few warnings though: If you're allergic to silicone or do not like silicone based products then this probably isn't the primer for you. Also, the pump can sometimes be hard to control. Other than that, I highly recommend this primer. It's so so affordable compared to other primers and it does an excellent job at making your face a smooth canvas for your base makeup!

Never used that foundation before but I really like the mineral elf primer if you’re looking for something reasonable. Also like porefessional benefit primer!! Tatcha silk primer is super good too but expensive.
