Maybelline Fit Me! Loose Finishing Powder

I decided to try a loose powder over a compact powder. I hardly ever use a loose powder because it’s messy. The texture and overall result using a loose powder is very different. It clings to the skin much differently. I find it to be more patchy and uneven. Anyways, I’ve never tried Maybelline Fit Me! Loose Finishing Powder before, and there’s nothing wrong with trying something new. Let’s see what happens!

  1. Apply with a brush

Review on Maybelline Fit Me! Loose Finishing Powder:

I’ve used this loose powder a couple of times. I didn’t enjoy it. It made my skin look dry and made my pores look larger. I have the one in Fair. The shade works on my skin, but I simply didn’t like the way it made my skin look. While making my skin look extremely dry and pores larger, it also accentuated fine lines, wrinkles, and acne. It’s a no-go. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone. Don’t buy it.

I’ve talked about the elf Poreless Putty Primer before, but I have not used it yet until now. This is what the elf Poreless Putty Primer looks like before I made dents in it. The appearance of the product looks ultra smooth upon opening the container. Here it is.

Here’s the elf Poreless Putty Primer after using it. The texture is really soft and smooth by appearance and touch. It’s super silky and elegant.

My Review on elf Poreless Putty Primer:

I’ve been playing with makeup primers, since I like how they make my skin appear smooth and flawless. I really need them at the moment. I’ve been going through an initial breakout from exfoliants. It’s been rough. I’m pulling through every single day. Primers have been great at making my makeup last longer than usual. Also, they have helped fill in fine lines and wrinkles. But also, other imperfections, such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and bumps.

This is going to be a review on the elf Poreless Putty Primer. At first, I was very wary about using this primer. It looked thick and felt thick to touch. I didn’t think my skin could handle this type of texture for long periods of time. So I bit the bullet and tried it for once. I’m very happy that I did. I liked it. It made my skin feel smooth, silky, and soft. It smoothed over fine lines and wrinkles wonderfully. I think this is the best makeup primer I’ve used so far. It doesn’t leave my skin oily. It’s not too thin. It’s not too thick in texture. My foundation looks way better with it on. It’s better than Smashbox Photofinish, NYX Studio Perfect Photo-Loving Primer, NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm, and elf Brightening Lavender Face Primer!

There’s one thing I learned about makeup primers while experimenting. You must make sure you completely remove them from your skin. If you don’t, you will breakout if you have skin that is prone to clogged pores. I’ll leave it at that and will show what products I use to prevent my skin from developing acne when using a face primer. As for the elf Poreless Putty Primer, it’s soooo worth it for the price! Try it out for yourself! This is my to-go-to face primer right now. It works!

Have you used elf Poreless Putty Primer before? If so, what did you think about it?

Love, Jen
