How to Use
Rated 4.11 out of 5 stars
I just received two pots from when they were recently restocked. You can see from the pics that it did practically erase my huge pores but you have to use very little.
At first, I was a bit heavy handed and used a cover-up brush expecting a thicker, putty consistency. It was much thinner than the website picture and putting on heavy made it impossible to put on foundation.
Next time, I tried using very little and dipped my sponge in it. Tapping it on worked well. Then used other side of sponge to tap and smooth on the foundation.
So pretty good overall. I am not blown away yet but it may be something I need to play with to find what works for me :)
I was so excited to try this primer because I have pretty large pores. It did okay and blurred them some what, not better than silicone primers to be honest. A couple of days later I noticed some pimples and thought it was just from stress, then literally two days later after using it I got acne all over my face, and I have never been the type to really get full blown acne, but it's huge and all over my face, it looks like I have going through puberty again, and I'm super embarrassed. I clean my face twice a day and take really good care of my skin, but never in my life had a product or anything make me break out those bad. I understand it's a pores filler but once I take my make up off I notice mire pimples that have formed. It's just not for me what so ever.

I have to echo some of the concerns mentioned in the previous reviews already. My skin had the worst and immediate reaction to this product, and now I have severe acne, varying sizes of whiteheads and pimples, and rashes on my face. I never had such a significant reaction to a cosmetic product before and don't want anyone else to experience the same trouble.
NL from Ulta
Not worth it, although it did blur some imperfections, it made my makeup oily soon after. On top of that, it made breakout on my forehead and it took a week to clear up
Natti from Memphis
It didn't cover any of my pores. I have oily skin, and honestly it made my makeup even oiler. After an hour or two, it creases under my eye and nose. Totally do not recommend if you have oily skin

This didn't work at all for me, maybe my nose pores are too visible
Abby from Houston, TX
This is the best primer I have ever used! Elf really stepped it up on this one. My pores are fairly big but become noticeably smaller when using this primer. I also noticed my makeup looking smoother and more skin-like. I would definitely purchase again!

I'm an oily t zone girl and I get dry in the winter, but this stuff works pretty well with the makeup I use over it. I have pores in my nose that I like to hide and this does the magic, keeps my hormones at bay. Don't use creamy products with this, just use your liquids and powders.
AmBeR from Oregon Coast
Why all the hype?! This is a HORRIBLE product!! It made me break out and I don't even have sensitive skin! It did nothing for me.. except take up room in my trash can! #garbage
Angie from Florida
Nothing special about this primer, it did nothing to make my makeup look better, it didnt blurred my pores & i dont think i have large ones, they were very noticeable if anything, my foundation starting breaking up around my mouth area which never happens, my chin got greasy which again never happens! ( dry skin gal here!) There was no smoothing effect , imperfections were very visible i could definitely tell a difference in how my makeup wore in a negative way, will stick to my other primers. Not worth the Hype.
Raychela from IN
I can't see the hype in this product. I found the texture impossible to work with and it just didn't spread and settle evenly over my skin. My foundation looked blah over it. Wish I would have returned it because eventually I just threw it away.

I have dry skin and pores and this primer is probably the best primer when it comes to getting rid of pores and making your skin look less cakey. However, i use another primer with this primer because it doesn't grip onto the makeup that well. But I don't mind using another primer with this one because this primer does an amazing job getting rid of my pores which many primers can't do.
Cilla from Texas
I just bout the product two days. I decided to use it for work with my normal bases. I loved how it blurred out my pores. Not even an hour later my face became irritated. So I would use a paper towel to tap it. When I got off work the first thing I did was wash my face. Then I looked real good at my skin. I broke out bad from this product. My skin was getting cleared until I used this product.
Allie from Columbus, OH
I love the way it makes my natural look not seam chalky. I rarely wear makeup and when I do I was having issues of flaking. I always use a good facial scrub and face moisturizer so the girls at Ulta recommended this putty based primer and I fell in love. You also can't beat ELF being cruelty free and affordable!
Cc from Glendora
Don't get the hype. There is nothing I like about this at all. Way better primers out there.

I love this stuff so much. I tried another just to check but came back for this primer.
Good from Y
It keep my making on all day but if after a while your face get really oily
sarah from georgia
it makes for great application but is not good for bumpy acne but amazing for blackheads! makes my blackheads and pores disappear
Nicole from East Newark, NJ
This is such a great primer for dry skin. My pores completely disappear when applied. Definitely recommend the Putty Primer Applicator Brush because it makes the job easier!
Neen from Missouri
It's so lightweight and doesn't feel or look heavy on your face! It's a great quality and a fantastic price. I won't use anything else!
Ava from North Carolina
I love this primer. I have never ever in my whole life used primer before and i tried it for the very first time and it works so well! Definitely will be using primer more often especially this one!! 100% recommend
Chelsea from Kingsport, Tennessee
I love the feel of the Poreless Putty Primer. It is easy to apply with your fingers, and it has a slightly sticky finish that feels like it will hold your foundation in place. However, for someone with large pores or dry skin, it will stick in all the places you don't want it to. As a result, my foundation tends to break up more when I use this, leaving sort of patchy dots where it has filled in my pores. Part of this might be my skin care, so I will keep this to try; I really don't think you need a lot of product for it to work, so overapplying might be making it patchier for me. But be aware that it can emphasize your pores rather than hide them depending on what your skin situation is. You might be better off with no primer.
Kelsey from Athens
Love the feeling of it on. Not too oily but doesn't just sit on top of my face. Overall makeup applies beautifully on the skin when using this.
mimi from colorado
very nice. not for old people.
Jacki from NJ
Very creamy and oily on my skin. I'm 45 and was hoping it would be more matte and cover my pores but it didn't.
Angela from Traverse City, MI
I am not, and definitely will not be an elf cosmetics fan have trying this. I cannot fathom the hype behind this product. My makeup looked horrible, melted off within a couple of hours, and I had the same reaction to this product as all other elf products. It took over a week for the rashes, and literal burns to heal on my face. If I could give this product -5 stars I would.
Sami from Washington
I have very textured and acne prone skin, and this primer makes my skin look so smooth and flawless. I tend to reach for a powder foundation to keep me less oily, and this primer is the only one that lasts for 12+ hours. 10/10 would recommend
