Gel primer typically comes in a silky, soft format and is smoothed on using fingers or a makeup sponge. The benefit of gel primer is that the application is completely no-fuss and it leaves a cool, matte finish on skin. The drawback is that it's typically a bit less effective at making makeup last than other formats.
Putty primer typically comes in a solid format and is smoothed on using a makeup sponge. The benefit of putty primer is its ability to give makeup extra long, smooth wear. The drawbacks are that its thick, bulky application is not intuitive or easy to apply. It often layers on resulting in patchy face makeup. The hard texture creates a sometimes oily finish, and can make skin feel “sweaty” underneath makeup. If the putty in the compact is left out uncovered, it’s a magnet for bacteria and physically hardens, becoming unusable.
