Benefit 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.

I have never had good luck with Benefit and this was no exception. I tried it a few times with different foundations and powders and there was zero difference in my makeup with this primer on or not. My makeup did not last longer, I was not less shiny and my pores were the same size. Save your $$$.

It is alright
Sampled

It is okay. I would probably never purchase. Maybe is just my skin.

Prefer the Matte Version
Sampled

I was interested in trying this after trying the matte version and *loving* it... and this version is only ok. I've tried a few different primers, mostly at the corner-market price point. I didn't think that this was any better than the drugstore versions, and possibly less effective for me.

Waxy/heavy
Sampled

My skin felt smothered after applying only a small amount. It felt waxy and emphasized my pores more.

Too pricy
Sampled

I had been wanting to try this primer for a While and was sad when it didn't live up to my expectations! It has a nice consistency and feels very velvety on our skin. It seemed to minimize my pores which was nice but I honestly could not tell that it keep my makeup in place whatsoever. That is what I'm looking for most in a primer. I have tried several over the past several months that worked much better and were a fraction of the price. This primer dos have a nice light tint and blurring effect which can be nice to enhance your bare skin

Pores be gone!
Sampled

This pore eliminator does work, it isn't greasy and doesn't leave a film on the skin, I'm able to use my normal powder and foundation over it. It smells great, And I can't wait to use this in the summer time

I'm in the minority..
Sampled

I know everyone is crazy about this product, but I'm not a fan. I should've prefaced that by saying that I don't use either foundations or primers. I did give it a chance, though, and I felt like it dried my skin. Just not for me.
