$8.00 ELF Primer VS. $52.00 Tatcha Primer

$8.00 ELF Primer VS. $52.00 Tatcha Primer


what’s up everybody, welcome back to my
channel! hi how are ya? wanna wake & bake?? alright, now in today’s video I’m
really excited because it’s 2019 so let’s bring back one of my favorite
series I have been doing for the last four years! which is Beauty battles and
no I don’t mean people doing my makeup James Charles bitch that’s your lane! I’m
talking about drugstore makeup versus luxury makeup now listen today we have a
really hot topic I have gotten thousands of tweets to review this primer and I
was like okay that people have spoken let’s review it so in today’s video what
the hell are we gonna do well basically I like to take a really affordable
drugstore product which today that will be the elf poreless putty primer now
this is allegedly a dupe for one of my favorite products so I’m like ooh today
get the coffee the tea and a Code Red Mountain Dew ready cos bitch it’s gonna
be a good one so what we’re gonna do today is we’re gonna take the drugstore
and then we’re gonna take the luxury item which is the Tasha the silk canvas
girl this came out last year it made waves every beauty guru was using it
including myself and I really loved it so how is it gonna work against the ELF
primer girl we’re about to see right now and I do have something a little
mysterious I want to tell you before we dive into this review just know that in
the next month maybe less maybe more I’m not sure there’s going to be the
first-ever real jeffree star me as a human being not my brand
collabing with someone else hi alright now let’s dive into this review
basically we’re gonna do split down the middle we’re gonna do the drugstore side
on my right side here which is your left and then we’re gonna do the luxury
touch-up primer on my left now it’s very simple you guys we do straight down the
middle we’re gonna prime with both of them and then we’re gonna do one
foundation over my whole face do some light makeup and then you know the drill
we’re can do check-ins throughout the entire day I have some stuff I’m gonna
do I have to go to a Gucci event I have to run some errands I might even go to
the gas station and say hi to that girl that red Tricia to the ground so let’s
get started now the elf poreless putty primer is only eight dollars girl that
is a steal now I don’t know what these ingredients
are the same there’s probably no way but I’m still
going to investigate now the elf primer has 0.74 ounces which isn’t that much
and the tatcha one has what’s the same I swear to god y’all look at this this
says 0.74 ounces which is 21 grams so let’s just unbox this thing and see how
big it really is outside of the packaging oh it’s sturdy in here honey
alright BAM there she is now I’m a little confused because this
crimer says that it has zero point seven ounces
and 20 grams so this is claiming to have one gram less than this one okay let’s
see what happens now this one is a little thicker as you see on the
component whereas this one is a little more thin because as you open it which
you’ll see right now it is spread a little thinner so maybe that is the
exact amount of product Oh an illusion let’s get back to the drugstore side mr.
elf how are we feeling girl so for eight dollars this is going to make me look
flawless allegedly it is infused with Sakhalin to help grip makeup for all-day
wear and help protect the skin from moisture loss and now this is a velvety
texture which is supposed to glide on effortlessly over the skin smoothing
over imperfections for a poreless effect it just says apply a thin amount over
your moisturized skin bitch and get ready allow thirty Seconds to set before
applying your foundation okay great good to know now I don’t know what this
ingredient is that they’re talking about suck Elaine I’m googling it right now
alright so we did a little Google search now Sakhalin if I’m saying that wrong
I’m so sorry it is supposed to do it say it balances oil production providing
just enough moisture to keep the skin clear and healthy okay sack coolant oil
has a powerful anti-aging property that will help the skin age gracefully I’m
ready I’m ready alright now let’s move on to the
talkshow silk canvas now this retails for $52 I got this at Sephora now this
one it says let’s see what are we supposed to do I’ve used this before you
guys but I’m just going to read we’re new a little goes a long way use a
rice sized amount for your whole face I’m like a rice sized that’s like
miniature a lot of big face that we may use if you more than that it says with
fingertips dot the formula on the forehead nose chin eyelids and cheeks
you could literally use as a primer massage the bomb into your face and
allow the silk to melt into a second skin before applying foundation all
right people I think it’s time let’s put this hair back a little bit now mr. elf
let’s see what we’re doing today all right so when you take it off it looks
like this very simple let’s smell it now the talk to one smells really good
like just they have their own fragrance it’s just like immaculate this let’s
take a little off whoo-hoo look at the putty there’s really like no smell
that’s so bizarre okay great well let’s I’m gonna home it’s gonna use
one hand so I’m just gonna put this on my fingers what did it say how much to
do a thin layer great all right well let’s pretend there is an invisible line
going down my face and let’s give this a whirl literally I’m doing half my nose like
BAM okay so as I’m putting it in it actually feels putting it in hopefully
so as I am massaging it into the skin it actually feels really good I didn’t know
what to expect I’m like eight dollars girl what the hell it feels nice it’s
not too tacky it feels very similar to the taja one I’m a little shook I also
want to note you guys we are zooming in here in 4k I did get laser hair removal
literally two days ago so what happens is your hair grows in cycles my hair is
pushing its way out of my skin and will actually fall out so high and I’m not
talking about the video game so let’s put a little bit more I do have a big
head so let’s do one more little scoop and let’s do the forehead hi okay want
to make sure we get really in there BAM all right so this is I keep going to the
box because I want to make sure I got it all good this is supposed to give me a
poreless effect so maybe it filled in the pores I still see a little bit of it
but when I’m comparing both sides this is definitely already way more blurring
than this side for sure okay besides that it went on really nice it feels
soft still really no smell which I’m not mad at because sometimes things could be
way too intense I’m sorry I actually forgot my neck girl I’m too thorough to
be forgetting that hi grandma how you doing girl you need some primer
bitch alright now let’s go to this side my left and we’re gonna put on the touch
of silica canvas now I got a brand new one for this and you guys see it is a
it’s big I love the packaging the the net weight was still a little confusing
to me but oh this smells so good if you’re ever in a Sephora and you just
want to smell this go by the aisle give it a whirl just grab a scoop and go okay
so let’s take a little bit off will use this I did clean my fingers so we’re
just gonna do a little the sort of little goes a long way so I’m gonna take
that amount right now okay and almost use one hand again let’s apply mm all right now to me I feel like I
already need a little bit more like it already melted into the skin so I know
that it says use a smaller amount but baby we got a big face so we’re gonna
take a little more put it in between our fingers again and let’s get over the
eyebrows into the forehead even into the hairline bitch
like I want to prime my existence all right now as I’m applying it
it’s very silky very soft it really feels kind of like moisturizer and I
can’t get over the smell it’s so good all right now both of these we should
let dry for I’m gonna say 60 seconds and then we’ll do foundation all right now
I’m gonna put a foundation on right now this just got done drying and I do have
some funny thoughts because when I first saw this I was like dupe alert now
listen I’m all for I know there’s a lot of thoughts about this like drugstore
brands shouldn’t rip off luxury but bitch if you don’t want to buy or you
can’t afford a $52 primer and there’s another option girl I’m not mad at it I
do understand that brands put a lot of blood sweat and tears into their work so
to see another brand dupe it or copy it maybe a little hurtful it’s definitely
happy to me girl but I think as you as time goes on I’m just kind of like it is
what it is baby you ain’t gonna get the same quality but mate when this review
but I’m just saying for my brand okay enough writing my gums I have about 50
foundations sitting in front of me so I I’m gonna wear a few foundations today what I love to you guys is spray the do
or air flash now I’ve been using this for God eight years spray this all over
and then blend it with another foundation to get this like look so
we’ll do a little luminous silk Giorgio Armani these are literally my
tried-and-true I think when I first met you Christian this is what I used in
every video but wild so you guys know the drill we’re gonna put the same
foundation over my entire face and do a little look Oh like a drowned rat
okay weird this looks you guys you can’t just spray it on and leave a lot of
people think that you have to blend it out we see all the creases it does look
really pretty but you really do have to buff and blend all right now let’s take
one of my favorite sponges the morphe beauty sponge and let’s put some
foundation on here almost kind of dot this all over the place and let’s see
what primer is superior all right so that side oh wow
okay bitch she’s pretty now let’s go over here to the elf side and let’s
blend the same area just to see if we’re like spotting a difference are we shook
do we not care alright so the nose and under the eyes is fully blended now I
think let me get in that crevice baby are we seeing a difference Christians
equity think nothing it does look very similar okay let’s just keep buffing oh right now looking like straight in
the camera you guys here is the elf drugstore side let’s do a little turn
before I do concealer or anything else this is just pure foundation and primer
and then here is the touch’ silk canvas side are we feeling okay now normally
you guys you know the tea I’m like I know right away and I really don’t see a
difference right now like what the fuck okay let’s keep applying makeup now the
other day I did review the fangy Beauty retouch concealer I’m gonna use it again
today is that Jeffrey star approved go watch the video but I’m gonna use two
shades I’m gonna use 120 and 110 again that really worked out for me in my
review let’s just brighten this fucking face baby alright now lets blend this over the
touch’ luxury side and let’s see how we like it
oh wow yes luminosity now this does look very dewy but in a minute we’re gonna
set it with powder so won’t be that dewy for long oh right I think we are fully blended in
and I may have carpal tunnel all right now I’m looking in my mirror here trying
to see a difference and I’m not really seeing one I’m looking at my pores like
just one side look more blurry just one side look more minimal I don’t know I’m
like really blending this concealer in and make sure it’s legit I’m a little
shaken and stirred you guys I don’t know what’s going on it looks very similar
but of course we just put it on 20 minutes ago how is it gonna look
throughout the day we shall see now I do really want to set the concealer if you
watched my Fenty review you know that Geoffrey Lin was the biggest fan of the
powder so we’re going to just grab a good old tried-and-true with the Laura
Mercier translucent powder we know she’s gonna work so let’s just use her oh wow
that looks stunning all right let’s take this and let’s do the other side and I’m
just gently pressing it in not too aggressive you don’t want to you know
you don’t want to hurt yourself how about you guys so we are fully set
I’m definitely gonna add a little bit of bronzer and highlight to this face maybe
a little mascara I don’t want to do too crazy of makeup because I want you to
see how my skin actually looks so we’re just gonna do a little makeup and then
I’m gonna switch to my vlogging camera and we are just going to go about my day
and see what actually happens with this formula I have no idea right now you
guys they’re very similar so I just gotta say that I’m a little shook they
are really really similar which really doesn’t happen on this channel usually
there’s always a difference in bitch we’re always shook but today I don’t
know what’s happening so I’m gonna go finish this face and then I will see you
guys um in the car pouring rain today I’m like actually getting missed it on
ok you guys so we’re outside I’m about to go ahead to a Gucci event but I want
to do my first check in because the makeups been on for about an hour now so
hey let’s pull up the compact and let’s see what’s happening here I’m like
genuinely shook because really just like in this studio and I know it’s only been
an hour I swore my life it looks the same what
do you think that’s so weird you usually have more to say but it
looks good that’s the first thing I don’t want to say it as a negative it
looks really great look at drama drama don’t mind the water the other dogs you
guys they’re like oh no no no no come on drama insight aren’t you guys so I guess
I’m just gonna continue on with my day I’m gonna just chill in the rain and see
what happens but right now it looks the same alright we’ve been in traffic for
about 30 minutes Maddie what are asked you earlier at the house and you said it
kind of looked similar very okay still does in the daylight because
I saw you in the studio okay so we are by the way this rain in LA is everything
I’m living for it I was just looking here in my 40 ball this here I swear I
passed the DMV driver’s test I was looking in the rearview here let’s see
if you could look put the you see me in there hi and I was joking
looked like wow that no son for my entire life really did me well okay all
jokes aside I am looking but without trying to crash and everything looks
really good so far both sides look fucking smashed so we will check in in a
little bit alright you guys I am in the Gucci dressing room and I am trying on a
bunch of stuff they just launched a whole new collection but I thought it
would be fitting to do a little check-in if you will so Maddy’s gonna take the
camera if you will maybe you come here and let’s just see the lighting become a
little low check him on the floor mm-hmm can you
see it good click my head yeah all right so just Maddy what do you think actually
when you look past the camera what do you think of my face it looks great no
creasing do you see a difference I really can’t okay let me get my mirror
I have my compact out let me see here okay compared to this side sorry you
guys the lights a little wonky mmm-hmm okay let’s stand up a little bit alright
so I’m looking you know what’s crazy is oh my god okay Maddy look past the
camera see right here in the poor area oh it’s like blurry I don’t look right
here Wow so come bring the camera back here I will show this again maybe look
we’ll go outside obviously we have a whole day of check-ins but right here
it’s like smooth and then right here baby I see those pores that’s crazy
one side is that one this is drugstore this is luxury I’m shocked okay
let’s try on some more clothes and get naked all right you guys we are finally
back home it is still pouring rain there is so much fog I am literally shook but
I am gonna look right here in the sunlight okay I’m gonna try I’m gonna
take this away for a minute oh no I’m gonna get really wet okay so you guys
the skin do I see my pores yes I see them a little bit but I don’t know if I
see a difference look Nate’s about to reverse and run me
over if I don’t have an answer haha I’m really gonna exam and hold on okay I
think the right side of my face has a tiny bit more creasing under my eye and
I can see my pores a tiny bit more than this side which isn’t that big of a deal
but this under-eye is a little more snatched than that under-eye in my
opinion that’s just what I’m noticing my pores are a little bit more accentuate
over here then over here but um yeah that is the thought for now so let’s go
get high I got my Winchell’s donuts let’s go see how this primer is looking
come on puppies how’s it looking flawless okay you guys so we’ve had this
primer on I was like four words okay let me set daddy down so I can really look
alright you guys anything name we go back by in the camera for a second
alright we have our primers we have tacho over here and elf over here how do
the pores look is the skin look do you see any difference I see a slight one
but I don’t know about you I think there’s like more creasing under this
one like you know I don’t really I didn’t know those fine lines existed
until today those really don’t show over here they list look more smoother but my
forehead looks smoother up here on the drugstore side and this side looks a
little rough but then down here this side looks better
trickery of makeup I mean we all have a different face different spots on our
face react differently summer dry summer you
know it’s a whole thing y’all you know how it is but this is a good text
because we can really see what the hell is happening so I think so far this side
might be in the lead but we will see in a few more hours all right guys here we
go here we go it has been a long day it is pitch-black out it’s raining it’s wet
everywhere I’m literally sitting in water but thank God for Gucci all right
let me put down my fat burger hashtag not sponsored let’s look and see what
the hell is really going on on this face I will say one thing oh wow
spin ten hours that’s what we’re gonna say bitch I’m looking a little rough
alright so this side remember has full touch and this has full elf I want to
say this this is a tricky one I feel like this side looks a little
more youthful whereas this side is a little more drawing I’m seeing a little
creasing here my pores a little bit more here but I’m gonna surprise you guys
overall I actually like the side as well now I didn’t know what to expect an
eight dollar primer is it a dupe or tatcha it’s close I will say that do you
get the full luxury experience as that Brandt of course you don’t but for the
price point eight dollars I’m going to say this it is really not bad I think
it’s a really good primer out of all the drugstore primers I’ve tried in the last
year it’s top tier up there so you may find this a little shocking I think that
the elf poreless primer is Geoffrey star approved for the price bitch you can’t
beat what happened today in full rain humidity it
was a rough one and it actually looks pretty good now of course talk shop
bitch we know it’s Jeffrey’s are approved we live for it I just wanted to
give it a go against this one about tatcha you killed it with this formula
a-plus all right you guys I need to go decompressed wipe this off and get
pregnant see you on the next one Wow bye guys
