For this post, I will be writing a review on the ELF Mineral Infused Face Primer.
My usual face primer is the Porefessional by Benefit.
My very first thought when I dabbed a little of the product on my face was, "Oh, no!" Looking at the swatch above, you probably think that the reason for that is that the shade does not match my skin at all, but in actuality, it is because the product is super shimmery! The more I patted the product across the entirety of my face, the more I regretted buying this product in this shade. The shade that I bought is Radiant Glow which probably explains the shimmer. I shouldve bought it in Clear or Tone Adjusting Green because the powder finish of the product is great, but I cant get over the shimmer!
ELF vs Benefit
There actually isnt as big of a difference as youd think between these two products. They both apply easily, and adjust to a powder finish, but the shimmer in the Mineral Infused Primer is super off-putting! It is also greasier to the touch than the Porefessional, which does a great job of keeping your face looking matte for hours and hours. There is a part of me that wants to buy the Mineral Infused Primer in a different shade.
Sad face. Boo shimmer. Follow me to see if I do end up buying a different shade!
