Additional Information

Oil Control Primer Mist is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this product before Christmas 2018 (along with a TON of other products). I have extremely oily skin, so I was excited to try this primer. Usually, after I finish my makeup look for the day, maybe 3 hours (if that) later, my makeup looks like I've already worn it for the whole day because of how oily my skin is. I used this product and was completely ASTONISHED at how great my makeup looks ALL DAY. It seriously looks like I JUST applied my makeup hours after! I will likely NEVER use a different primer. I probably use at least 3-4 spritz before I apply my foundation, but this product has lasted about 3 months. There's a slight smell, but to my senses, it's almost sweet, but hardly noticeable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good I really love this as a setting spray and a refresher during the day, it works well and I would recommend this to others. More than three sprays are too much though, a lot comes out of the nozzle at once. Although this spray is kind of a lot of money for elf, but it is worth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful spray I bought this product to actually use throught the day to replenish my makeup. I have very oily skin so after a couple of hours no matter what foundation I use I get oily and have to blot and use a blotting powder. So I figured I would add this to my regimine but my main and really only complaint is the spray is so strong. The mist should definitely be a finer softer spray so as not to disturb the makeup you are trying to replinish. I may try to replace the nozzle with a nozzle to another product that has a finer mist.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works I liked the way my foundation went on over this product but it has a weird smell. the smell eventually goes away and it helps to keep the foundation and concealer in place through the day. I have oily skin and it does its job but my skin actually was a little dry from this. I will be using a moisturizer before this from now on. Overall, works exactly as described!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth it If you struggle with oily skin around the T-zone and cheeks, this is for you. Only slight con is that you have to reapply a couple times during the day to keep the matte look

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ran out after 4-5 uses I wrote a review and then tried to update it, but there's no way to edit or update a review (a shame, and e.l.f. should fix that). Anyhow, turns out BOTH reviews got deleted. So, I'll try this again. I am an oily girl living in Haiti. I am always looking for ways to keep me from looking like I got hit by an oil-slick by mid-day. At first I thought this might be it, but it really seemed to be just okay, not spectacular. However, the problem came from the fact that only 4 or 5 uses in (I swear it was no more than that), the thing was absolutely dry! How in the world do you pay this much, even for a budget line, and it only lasts 4 or 5 uses? And this isn't the only elf problem I've had like that. I have the under-eye roller ball refresh thingy, and I really like it, but again, I used it less than a dozen times and it's empty. Come on, guys! Cut me some slack here! I LOVE e.l.f.! But I don't like throwing money away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually Works!! I have bought many products that claim to aid with oiliness but many to none can actually do what they claim. I put this primer up against LAGirl primer spray for 3 days side by side and the elf product did 1,000 times better each day! I also put it up against AOA, Milani, and Ulta Beauty brand. This oil primer out did all the other primers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smells awful and doesn't stop oil I bought this more than a month ago and was so excited to try it out. Turns out it smells to high heaven-- honestly, it reminds me of burning rubber. Just awful. Add to that, I haven't noticed any differences in it keep my skin from getting oily. My cat hates the smell of it on me too and has ceased seeking attention from me if I put it on. To me, it's not worth the love I've lost with my cat by smelling like a dumpster fire.

Can I use this as a setting spray as well, or just as a primer?

Asked by: JuliesaLynn
Just as a primer. If you sprayed this over your makeup it would probably ruin it in the long run. A "setting" spray (a spray to make makeup last longer) would need alcohol in the first 3-4 ingredients.

Could i use this and then on top apply my elf poreless face primer 

Asked by: Anonymous 123456
You could but I think it would be too heavy with both. What I like about this one is you don't feel like you have anything on your face but it works so well!

Is there another way to apply this other than spraying it onto your face? I've heard that the misters on the bottles that look like these are rather strong and do not provide a fine mist.

Asked by: Ri36
I use my hands to spread it out evenly and that works just fine for me. It's a great product and very light!

Does this really work? Because my skin is so oily for no reason and it ruins my makeup everydayyy

Asked by: Renn16
You can only find out if you buy it. Besides, everyone's skin is different. It may work wonders for someone else, but on the other hand it does no justice for you. It's not like you're spending 20+ dollars.
