As usual, I like to just get straight to the point with my reviews. The conclusion comes first and product details come afterwards.
Does this product do as it says?: Surprisingly yes.
Would I recommend it?: Ehhh… It’s definitely worth a try. It can be a hassle to use.
How to apply: This product is best used after you’ve finished your makeup. After primer, foundation, concealer, or whatever else you else, THEN you apply this product and gently pack it into the wrinkles using your finger with a patting motion. If you apply this under your makeup, you get a mess. If you rub this product when applying it over your product, the color of your makeup will lighten and become a splotchy mess.
The applicator: It’s just a slanted plastic tube with a small opening. The product comes in a pen shaped applicator with a twist up top. It’s similar to a lip gloss.
Texture: It’s like a mattifying gel that feels like silica. It feels really smooth when applying. It almost blurs and creates an airbrushed finish.
What happens when you rub it in instead of pat it in?: It flakes… a lot.
Final thoughts: If you have wrinkles, there’s no harm in giving this a try. Just be sure to pat this on after you’ve finished your makeup. Also, try to avoid touching your face. You wouldn’t want it to flake on your face and ruin your makeup. I’d suggest giving it a try sometime in the evening about an hour before it’s time to take off the makeup. Just check how it applies, how the product works with your makeup, if your makeup changes colors, etc. It does fill in wrinkles like it says. I personally don’t like how it flakes when I rub my skin, so for me that makes this product a stinker. But because it works, I will recommend this product. If you’re buying this product because of the premature aging prevention that e.l.f claims, don’t bother with it.
