"This colorless base helps enhance the performance of makeup throughout the day. The lightweight, silky formula smooths the appearance of fine line and pores, creating an even surface for foundation. Packed with minerals and vitamins to protect skin from environmental damage."
This primer has the look and feel of Elf primer initially. However, the Youngblood primer definitely absorbs much better than the Elf primer and leaves your face nice and soft with no oily feel left behind. Although I don't like the initial oily/greasy feel of when you apply it I could get past that if it worked the way I wanted it to but it didn't. :(
I have dry skin and it really didn't do much in the way of combating any flaking foundation problems. I was not happy with the way my makeup turned out at all the day I wore this. I tossed out Elf's primer after one use for the same reason and will do the same for this most likely. I know not everyone has crazy dry skin so this primer might work great for you.
This primer will run you $41 at full size (though you can find it a little cheaper on Amazon), which is a 1 fl oz size. A little goes a long way when it comes to primer but still at $41 dollars I would expect something great. I love Laura Mercier primer and it only runs me $32 for a 1.7 fl oz. Laura Mercier works with my dry skin and not only that it has more of a lotion feel when applying compared to greasy feel.
Another thing I dislike about this product is the pump. I have a sample size so maybe the pump on the full size is better (I would hope so). I could never get the pump to work no matter how many times I tried. I had to unscrew the cap and force it out by shaking it.
I don't think this primer is horrible. It kept my makeup own like it was suppose to but for dry skin it doesn't do anything for flaking foundation which is my biggest reason for using a foundation primer to begin with. I don't love the "silky" texture as they call it. I would not recommend this to anyone with dry skin. If you have a more normal/oily skin this primer might work great for you. I would definitely suggest trying out a sample before purchasing anything at $41 though.
I give this product 3 stars. I didn't work for me and I wouldn't repurchase but it did keep on my makeup so at 3 stars it was OK.
Have you tried this product? What did you think?
