Dupe alert of TATCHA 🚓 e.l.f. 💕$8 vs. 54$
Hi Cherie sisters 👯♀️ 💗 I want to share my recent fav product: e.l.f. poreless putty primer. I can tell that I’m a huge fan of TATCHA. The silk canva primer was by far the best primers I’ve found on the market (until I found e.l.f.). But I have continued my hunt to test out some more possible dupes with lower price. While scrolling through Cherie, I saw a post about e.l.f. poreless putty primer could be the dupe alert of TATCHA. I recently picked this up from Target and I can tell it is a dupe through component type, color, texture - everything and only $8.00 !!!! Cheap and great quality products. When I open it, it smells a bit chemically. I love the texture: feels like a mix of solid coconut oil and butter (close to a balm but not greasy) . It wasn’t stick or oily for me personally, and I felt it was a little less thick than the TATCHA !!!! It really does make for a flawless look since it is soooo smoothing and completely poreless just like it states. It definitely feels like silk when you touch it as TATCHA does. I'm dry skin type, and this is best for me since is def not dry when I use it, and it's not necessarily hydrating. I love TATCHA, but it was kind of pricey and didn’t last me that long. e.l.f. primer is the best dupe alert of TATCHA silk canva for students who can’t always afford to buy overly expensive makeup (just like me). Lower price with same quality. Gorgeous product!! Tips: I like to use finger to apply primer all over my face. The warmth from fingers will help better break the product down for easier application than brush.

Drug store makeup dupes 🚨
I came across a run down on Cremes Come True blog about drug store dupes of high end products. I’m a lover of beautiful makeup products but I’ve been on a tighter than usual budget recently so decided I’d work my way through each of the dupe products, try them and review them for you guys since drug store products have come so far in the last few years. The products Cremes Come True compared are: PRIMER High End — TATCHA - The Silk Canvas Protective Primer Drug Store — e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer FOUNDATION High End — Too Faced - Born This Way Natural Finish Foundation Drug Store — MAYBELLINE - Super Stay Full Coverage Foundation CONCEALER High End — tarte - Shape Tape Concealer Drug Store — MAYBELLINE - Super Stay Full Coverage Under-Eye Concealer BLUSH High End — Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color Drug Store — MAYBELLINE - Cheek Heat Gel-Cream Blush HIGHLIGHTER High End — rms beauty - Luminizer X Quad Drug Store — e.l.f. - Shimmer Palette MASCARA High End — Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara Drug Store — L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara LIPSTICK High End — ARMANI beauty - Lip Magnet Liquid Lipstick Drug Store — L'ORÉAL - Rouge Signature Matte Liquid Lipstick Make sure you follow me and keep an eye out for incoming reviews on the e.l.f. Poreless Putty Primer and Maybelline Cheek Heat cream blush which I’ve been trying out over the last couple weeks 🥰 Next on my list to try are the L’Oreal Lash Paradise mascara (since Too Faced BTS is one of my favourite mascaras!) and e.l.f. Shimmer Palette. Have you tried any of these products and did you love them or were you not a fan?
Easy (five minute!) makeup for ZOOM Meetings
Doing my makeup and feeling put-together is one of my favorite things, however I don’t always have the time or energy to be able to achieve a full-face beat every day. Soft and gentle glam, I use this look when I want to feel ~soft~ and glowy, but only spend minimal time on it. I start with NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer which I use all over my face, spot concealing redness of pimples, around my nose and lips, tip of my nose, and between my eyebrows. This brightens and evens your skin tone without a full face of foundation. You can use primer if you want, when I do I use a blurring primer like TATCHA - The Silk Canvas Protective Primer or beautyblender - Pore Minimizing Primer which smooth skin and even look good just on their own. I set with BECCA - Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder and then move on to my eyes. I use one eyeshadow palette with a few colors, two of my favorites are NATASHA DENONA - Mini Nude Eyeshadow Palette and EM COSMETICS - Limited Edition Divine Skies Eyeshadow Palette which have both mattes and shimmers. Important: they don’t patch! This makes blending a breeze. I put a neutral brown in my crease and outer V, then layer a dark brown in my outer v and smudge on my lower lash line. Adding shimmer is optional, but I usually do. For this I just use my finger and swipe on the lid. All powders for my face bronzer, blush, & highlight applied with one fluffy brush. I apply blush by pinching the powder brush in my fingers to elongate it to place product where I want— my fav is PATRICK TA - Monochrome Moment Velvet Blush which applies smoothly on all skin (prepped or not). I layer with benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzer in a 3 shape, and finish with whatever glowing highlight i feel like. In this image it’s OFRA - Nikkietutorials Everglow Highlighter Brow filling is optional, but brushing them up with a gel helps you look awake and youthful with little effort. Finish with mascara and a tinted lip balm or moisturizing lipstick like Glossier. - Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick or EM COSMETICS - EM Cosmetics Lip Cushion and you’re ready to go in less than ten!
Good primer, low cost
Skin type: combination, acne prone. The product: skin perfecting infused with squalane to help grip makeup for all day wear and help protect skin for moisture loss. Texture: velvety. Experience: I loved the texture, it leaves the skin hydrated and soft, my makeup lasts more time and definitely improves the appearance of the pores. I rarely wear makeup and when I used this primer I really liked the results. 👍🏻👎🏻: like. Price: $8 e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer

I’d rather get coal than Elf Poreless Putty
I’d rather get coal than Elf Poreless Putty Primer This primer is supposedly a skin perfecting putty primer infused with Squalane to help grip makeup for an all day long wear. It has a velvety texture that helps this primer glide over the skin. I was so excited to try this primer after watching Jeffree Star’s review on YouTube. Sadly, when I used this primer it left my skin so oily and greasy, my makeup just slipped off my face! This primer made my face break out as well! (I have normal combination skin) I would NOT recommend this to anyone! If you’re curious you can spend the $8 but I wouldn’t waste the money! I give this a 0 out of 5 stars. e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer TATCHA - The Silk Canvas Protective Primer

TESTING PRODUCT DUPE | Tatcha vs. Catrice
CATRICE COSMETICS - Prime And Fine Smoothing Refiner TATCHA - The Silk Canvas Protective Primer I saw this dupe being talked about online so I put it to the test! For reference, I have oily skin type. I had the Catrice primer before I tried the Tatcha one and I thought it was pretty good! This one has silicone in it so it definitely has that slippery feel. The texture is more of a powdery finish once it is set into the skin. It had some blurring effect on the skin but it wasn’t as pore filling as other primers I have tried. This made my skin soft and set a good base for foundation. I couldn’t really tell if this extended the wear of my makeup throughout the day. On the plus side, this is an oil free primer. The price is also great at $7.99 for a really great amount of product. I tried out the mini Tatcha primer after hearing such rave reviews. I’ve used this for a few months now and I can say that I really love it! I adore that this is a silicone free formula yet still adds a blurring effect. It’s not as pore filling as I expected but it still gives a nice finish. It feels like a quality skincare product once it has set into the skin. I personally like to let this settle for a few minutes before going in with foundation. I do see a difference in the wear time of my makeup with this! I still get oily throughout the day but that is manageable for me. The only thing stopping me from loving the Tatcha one is the price! The mini is $22 and full size is $52. I definitely like it a bit more than the Catrice primer but they are very comparable if you are looking for a cheaper alternative
CATRICE COSMETICS-Prime And Fine Smoothing Refiner
Can a drugstore product ever truly be a dupe for a luxury product? Is there something inherently better in expensive primers? . I've seen this Elf cosmetics Poreless Putty Primer ($8) compared to the Tatcha Silk Canvas Primer ($52) all over the place. The comparisons and price difference have certainly caught my eye. So, what's my verdict? . After using the e.l.f primer, I can say it's almost there as a good stand in. It goes on smooth, my makeup withstood an 8-hr retail shift, and didn't cause any breakouts. BUT - the overall texture of the Silk Canvas is smoother, smells nice, and has great staying power. . If you want a luxury experience, Tatcha won't steer you wrong. If you're looking for a great primer, regardless of the application experience, then e.l.f is a fantastic almost-dupe

e.l.f Cosmetics - Primer
Initially, I bought this e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer because I saw Jeffree Star’s glowing review and to be honest he was spot on! This primer is amazing! I usually buy primers in tubes, so using this one was tricky in the beginning. I saw that a similar primer is applied with a small dime shaped item, so my brilliant idea was to use a sanitized coin😅! It works y’all - don’t hate til you see how it works for you hahaha! I always use primer because I wear makeup at least six days a week and I have oily combo skin so I need to have a good primer pre foundation! This primer applies easily with my coin 😉 and then I smooth it out on my face. I always wait a few minutes to let it settle in before foundation but I do this with all of my primers. It’s a soft creamy primer that smoothes over the pore and minimize their appearance when wearing alone or with foundation! Online it states you can apply with fingers too - since that warmth of your fingers will help with a better application! Overall, I need to blot my face throughout the day but I do see my foundation lasting anywhere from 6-8 hours when wearing this primer. I bought this in August when it was finally back in stock at Ulta’s and been using this or one of my other primers interchangeably. For $8.00, you cannot find a better deal since each jar comes with 0.74 oz of product. I like it because the price makes it affordable for all beauty lovers and because it is effective! However, I did wish they would come with an application tool like Tatcha does. If you are in need of a new primer or want to try it out, go ahead and get yourself this primer because it is a steal!

Too Faced - Replenishing Face Primer
This Too Faced - Hangover Primer is my go to primer when my face needs some major hydration. Even though I have oily combo skin, I do suffer from dry spots especially during the cold winter months in the east coast. This primer contains coconut water that revived the skin, which is perfect for those days I’m suffering from dry skin. It does not happen often to me but when it does and I need to wear makeup, this is the face primer I reach for on my vanity. After you apply this primer and let it settle, you fee your skin taking in the hydration and coming back to life. It’s a white semi thick consistency with a light lovely scent. I typically tend to get matte primers but like I said I needed one that would hydrate my face hence why I decided to purchase this primer. This primer retails for $34.00 at Sephora and comes with 1.35oz of product. I love it because it is 100% hydrating and settles good with my matte foundation and setting powder. A little goes a long way with this product so be mindful when using it. I think it is worth it since I do not use that much product and my pump is still more than half way filled. I think this product would be even better on those with dry skin and need an extra boost of hydration. If you buy it, let me know what you think! ✨
