Benefit Cosmetics

Birchbox Breakdown

Of all the beauty minefields out there, visible pores are one of the trickiest to dodge. Foundation alone doesn’t do the trick, which is why we turn to this translucent balm to shrink our pores. We can use it as a primer in the mornings or as a touch-up treatment throughout the day. Perfect t-zone, here we come.

How it Works

The silky, oil-free formula diffuses pores and fine lines for an “airbrushed” finish. It goes on sheer, leaving skin even and smooth. Don’t we all love instant gratification?

How to Use

As a primer, apply a fine layer on clean or moisturized skin, starting from the center of your face and working outwards. Pat to blend. Feel free to use for midday touch-ups too — just dab a pea-size amount over your makeup and blend.

The product felt greasy. I was surprised by the tint. It did blend well. I didn't noticed if it my pores were smaller. But, my pores are small.

Bridal bonus

I recently served as maid of honor/ make up artist for a close girlfriend's wedding. This was an amazing sample to get at just the right time! I did 4 faces and all of them held up all day and night and looked flawless. Good size sample. I even have a little left to use on me but I'd only use it on my nose. A little goes a long way!

Nice Product

This product provides a semi matte finish to my t-zone, by minimizing my pores a bit and by preventing my face from getting very oily. It does not completely eliminate either problem, but I prefer this to having a papery complexion. I have had no problems with breakouts due to this product. It also has a nice fresh scent.

I was so excited to receive this product. I always wanted to try it but didn't want to spend money without sampling it. This works great. Smooth and even coverage. I plan to buy this.

Pores are gone

I am a 23 year old working professional, I have been keeping a close eye on my skin as my job has been incredibly stressful for the last 6 months. I was noticing that the pores on my cheeks appeared larger and was excited to receive this sample in my birchbox. I have been using it everyday and it works so great. The texture isn't oily and it wears well even after a 17 hour day at the office. I will be purchasing this product when the sample runs out
