e.l.f Eye Refresh & Mineral Face Primer | Review
Written by NZINGHA for ZFACEINC,nyc
First let me say this for the record, the quiet giant, the recession makeup brand…DON’T SLEEP ON ELF!!!
I always get excited when I’m trying something new and I’m always excited when I feel I’ve gotten more than what I paid for. elf™ is that wonderful surprising brand! How is it that this brand has stood in the wind of designer label brands, how is it that this brand has managed to flourish build up and become a well known brand even to discriminating Pro Makeup Artists in the midst of a national recession?
The answer is simple…AFFORDABILITY and GREAT USEFUL PRODUCTS.
• EYE REFRESH
Okay lets begin this review with elf’s Eye Refresh…I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!!! Where have you been all my life?!??? And how have I worked for close to 30 years in the industry and not had this baby or something like it in my kit?? Probably because no one not even myself came up with the idea until now.
This metal rollerball and formula are genius! It’s great for swollen and puffy under eyes AND overall puffiness on the face just roll it over the swollen area. It’s tingly formula wakes up the skin…LITERALLY! I liken it to my current favorite concealer Remedy Concealer by Marc Jacobs (the cooling metal applicator tip). I use both refrigerated for best results. Trust me on this if thats your area of concern, its a must purchase! I recommend using both, elf Eye Refresh first then the Remedy Concealer by Marc Jacobs. The refresh will not change or harm any concealers you may choose to use. It’s simply lovely!
The cooling sensation of the rollerball brightens and refreshes the eye area to help alliviate under eye puffiness and dark circles.
Infused with key ingredients Pomegranate, Rosemary, Green Tea, Cucumber and Grape.
Awaken the skin throughout the day with this perfect portable on the spot “pick-me-up” treatment.
Gently roll the tip from the inner to the outer corner of the under eye area several times to dispense formula. Apply morning, night or as often as needed throughout the day under or over makeup.

• Mineral Face Primer in Brightening Lavender and Tone Adjusting Green
Don’t be afraid of these two colors! And no you will not look like The Incredible Hulk by using this green primer! Hahaaa! Surprisingly when you dispense the product from the pump top (which I love to monotor your portions in using a product) the primer is a sheer lightly tinted solution with light refracting through it to give the appearance of color toning and correcting!!
It’s a pore and line filler and skin correcting toner all rolled in one! Now to me thats a useful product. Multipurpose cosmetic products are the wave of the millennials. Thanks elf for this wonderful light formula product. This primer is light yet thick enough to not be runny or too gummy in thickness, it’s the perfect consistency.
Transform your face into a flawless and smooth canvas with the Mineral Infused Face Primer. Developed to combat against excess oil, flaky dryness, enlarged pores and fine lines. This clear multipurpose skin primer will prepare your skin so makeup goes on evenly for a long lasting satin finish.
