Elf Mineral Primer Review

Hi beauties,

So, I purchased this primer during my recent drugstore haul, and I realized I’ve never reviewed an Elf product before. Similar to NYX, Elf products can be harder to get in Canada but I know they’re a favourite for many ladies because of the low price and good results. This is actually the first Elf product I’ve ever purchased!


I purchased the ‘Radiance’ shade of this primer. I’ve been wanting to try Becca’s new illuminating primer, but I don’t want to spend $50 on a f$&@ing primer, so I was hoping this would deliver!


-Nice smooth texture

-neutral colour, doesn’t wash me out

-shimmer is fine and not chunky

-very illuminating

-no weird smells or anything

-there’s a pump!

-A bit too illuminating on my upper lip


Oh my god guys I this stuff is great! For only $8CAN it’s seriously a must. My skin hasn’t broken out like it has with other primers and I feel like it does a great job of keeping my foundation in place. I do notice my upper lip is a bit too illuminated in certain lighting with this, so I’ll have to remember to use it sparsely in that area.

I have a hard time forking over a lot of money for primer because I feel like it’s a bit of a luxury. I’d rather spend those dollars on a palette. I’m definitely glad I took the chance with Elf! They also have several other finishes of this such as green and neutral. Highly recommend!

    I love Elf products especially the primers. They do such a good job for the price.

    Congrats on your first ELF product! I have not tried this primer so your review was great. If you can, get a hold of their smudgepot for the eyes-great dupe for Mac’s pots and creamier than Maybelline color tattoo!
