Updated Review: elf Poreless Putty Primer

It’s been almost a year since I did a review on the elf Poreless Putty Primer! Here are my thoughts after a year (almost a year, lol). Wow, my experience and thoughts have changed so much over time. So what do I think about this primer now?
I raved about it in the beginning, but my thoughts have changed since. I stopped liking it. I started to notice that it dried out my skin like all of the other primers I have used before. Along with the dryness, it accentuated dry patches, pores, fine lines, and wrinkles. My foundation looked more, extra dry on my skin with the primer underneath. The fact that it left my skin dry made my skin itchy. Not only that, it irriated my skin to the point that it clogged my pores. Yes, I removed my makeup and the primer properly and thoroughly. I still ended up with clogged pores. If I had active pimples, the primer would make them swell and enlarge. I truly believe the culprit is the elf Poreless Putty Primer. I’ve learned that my skin doesn’t do well with heavy silicone-based face makeup and skincare. It just doesn’t work for me. My skin hates it because it feels like my skin is being wrapped in saran wrap. I’m not saying I can’t use makeup and skincare with silicones. Some of my makeup and skincare contains silicones. If silicones are high up on the list of ingredients, it’s usually a no-go. I haven’t noticed a difference with my makeup when I use a primer and when I don’t. It didn’t make my makeup look smoother, last longer, or better looking. I think I’m better off not priming my face. The elf Poreless Putty Primer has been highly raved by many people, but it didn’t work out for me in the end. I still have a jar of product left. Oh well. Moving on…

I was really excited about this liquid eyeliner! After 1 month of using it on and off, I was disappointed. I used it on and off because I was disappointed each and every time I used it. I didn’t like the way it looked on me and the overall quality of this product was poor. Here are the reasons why I disliked this liquid eyeliner so much. It is not waterproof, smudge-proof, humidity-proof, flake-proof, and cry-proof like the product claims. This eyeliner smears like no other, and it doesn’t stay put. I could easily remove it after application with my finger. Sometimes when I yawn and tears come out of my eyes…this eyeliner washes away so quick! 😢 Don’t get me started with it flaking. It flakes and gets gooey at the same time. Along with that, the flow of the product distributes unevenly. I tried using the eyeliner in one stroke and in segments. For both methods, the results were the same..an uneven line of color. Also, it isn’t long-lasting as they claim. As I mentioned earlier, it smears. It fades too, so the intensity of the color isn’t long-lasting. Everything they claim about this liquid eyeliner is a blatant lie.
I wanted to share this…
This is what the liquid eyeliner looks like after a month of using it. The ‘ultra-fine tip’ started splitting in the first week. It continued to split with each use. 🙁 As you can see, the quality of the product is very poorly made. They need to redo the whole product. It just isn’t cutting it. It’s just so bad that I regret purchasing it. Here’s a heads up. Don’t buy this eyeliner. It sucks!
