Elf Poreless Putty primer and Tatcha Silk Canvas primer

Today we are comparing the elf Poreless Putty primer and Tatcha Silk Canvas primer.

Tatcha product costs 52$, which is very expensive. However, I will vouch for it and say that it lasts forever. It works well with every foundation. It’s just a lifesaver.

the elf one is great because it’s only 8$, which is like more than less than half of what the Tatcha want.



Let’s start with the claims. The Elf Poreless Putty primer says: perfecting Putty primer smooths the skin and preps it to help moisturize and grip makeup for all-day wear. It has a velvety texture that glides over the skin smoothing over imperfections for a poreless effect.

Apply an even thin amount to moisturize the skin before makeup and allow to set for 30 seconds before applying foundation. Which is pretty much what the Tatcha one is.

Feels and impressions:

It feels a little bit more hydrating than the Tacha. It absorbs into the skin nicely.

On the other hand, I feel like the Tatcha mattifies the skin a little bit more. It absorbs everything whereas the elf one feels like I said a little bit more hydrating.

Now, let’s talk pores.

I don’t see a huge difference with like pore filling on both sides. The Tatchi side is a little bit more matte.
Otherwise, they both look flawless. All the products went on so nicely over the top of the elf side, and I loved the way that it looked. I don’t have any issues or anything wrong to report.

Throughout the day, after six hours, I was so impressed. My makeup hasn’t looked this good in a long time. Like I haven’t even touched up or anything.


I’m so impressed with the elf primer like it held up my makeup beautifully my products were still in place by the end of the day. My blush my bronzer my concealer the powder the foundation everything was still there.

When I touch my face, it doesn’t even feel oily; it just feels soft. And very comfortable.

the primer did an excellent job at holding everything together and just making everything look super smooth and seamless on my skin.
I can vouch and say that this ELF primer is, in fact, a dupe for the Tatcha canvas primer.
