Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer

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.

Dupe Alert

I had been using Maybelline's Pore Eraser for a few months and really liking it when I got this sample. I had heard great things and was excited to try it. I love it and it does it's job... covers well and holds onto my make up ALL DAY. However given the price I think I will stick to Maybelline, nothing too drastically different.

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!

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.

OMG!

I love it & don't even own any! I was snooping thru my daughter's cosmetic bag one day, & I came across this tube, & all I could see was " pores", I have big pores on my nose & have always wanted to find something to cover them, so I tried it & I could not believe the difference in the appearance of my nose! I thought to myself, " I have finally found the miracle cream"! I love love love it! It feels so light on my skin, so, I will be purchasing this miraculous concealer! Thanks " Birchbox" & " benefit".

LOVE this product

I've always had insanely oily skin and huge pores. This is the only primer I will ever use after trying it from my cousin's box a while back. This product gets all the stars.

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.

Awesome Primer

This is one of the best primers I have every used. It feels like silk on your skin but you can tell as soon as it's on much it improves your skin's appearance. A+

Made for even skin

I liked this - a little went a long way, it did seem to temporarily shrink my pores and eliminate oiliness, and it worked well under makeup. It's a little sticky, but that was my only complaint.
