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 the appearance of our pores. The silky, oil-free formula diffuses pores and fine lines for an “airbrushed” finish, and it goes on sheer, leaving skin smoother and more even. 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 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.

Deserves to be tried

My sister recommended this product to me (I had been using Smashbox's Photo Finish primer for a few years). This product is AMAZING! By far the best from Benefit. It's incredibly smooth on the face and doesn't give you a greasy feeling. I usually wear under foundation but somedays I wear it alone - it's that good! Makes me feel delicate and clean.

I love the POREfessional

This is basically a makeup primer that doubles up because it seriously reduces the visibility of pores. Ever since trying it, I don't go a day without putting this on under my makeup. You can also put it on during the day as needed too!

good stuff, but nothing different
Sampled

I think that this was a good product -- it really did make my pores invisible and make my skin look very smooth. That being said, I think this is pretty much what each one of these products does. Makeup Forever's primer, as well as most other primers I've ever used, do the exact same thing.

POREfect!

I haven't worn any sort of concealer/foundation for an eternity, so I was considering giving this away. Instead, I gave it a try this morning and was pleasantly surprised! It was extremely lightweight, had a nice scent, and was very subtle. I might buy some after all!

Amazing primer!!!
Purchased

I was looking for a primer and saw the great reviews in this one so I decided to get it even though it's a bit pricey... I was surprised at how well it worked. I used it mainly on my t-zone, it left my skin really smooth and I didn't really have to use make up...

This product truly makes my makeup last without looking greasy. My pores are huge no matter what i've tried, so if I can't fix them at least I can mask them!

AMAZING

I have a lot of noticeable pores around my nose area and this COMPLETELY made them disappear. That alone makes me love this product, but it goes on so smooth and really is great to wear under OR over my makeup. Or, I can throw this on and not worry about my pores being out for every one to see! This is the absolute best primer I've ever used!!!
