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.

good coverage but too much work
Sampled

This does minimize pores, but it's too much work to me. I still need a foundation and concealer. I would rather use one of the combination products like a bb or cc cream to get all the benefits together without having to use so many products.

Good primer

Product does the job, but not worth a lot of money for what you get!

Strange consistency
Sampled

I was excited to try this out. However I felt that the tint along with the way the makeup went on my face was not a good fit for me

Felt a little drying

I'm sure this is great for someone with larger pores and oily skin but it just didn't do it for me.

Decent primer!
Sampled

I love Benefit products, so I was excited to try this one out. Unforunately, it didn't live up to my expectations too much just because it only lasted me a couple days. I'm worried about purchasing the full size because I'm worried for it to run out quickly.

Not a fan
Sampled

I know this product works great for some but I am not a fan. My skin tends to be oily and I don't like the texture of this.

My daughter loved it, I felt like it slid off my face.

It's ok but doesn't live up to the hype around it.
Sampled

It really isn't anything to write home about. I mean, it isn't bad by any means but I already had a primer by innisfree (the "no-sebum blur primer") that is exactly the same and that is less than ten bucks. For less than ten bucks it would be worth it for as much as I use it (not that often really but when I want it, I want it) but for the high end price it is just not worth it.
