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.

Not for me

My skin is dry and dull and this just makes my face look really matte. I'm sure it's great for those with oily skin and bigger pores. It just made me look too airbrushed.

I never have, nor will I ever use a primer. I haven't even tried it. I gave it to my friend. She hasn't tried it either. It's a cute package.... I'll give it that!

Not all that I hoped it would be
SampledPurchased

this product feels soft, but doesnt seem to make much difference when adding makeup. Other products i have i can really tell that its on my skin and hold on my makeup. this product is almost too light.

Not Worth It

I HATED this primer. My makeup gunked up, got sticky and patchy, and just looked terrible while wearing it. It's also a tinted primer that is so ugly. Don't buy it.

My pores look bigger and more visible

I was so excited to read reviews on this stuff even on utube. I received mine and moisturizer my face and waited 15 minutes before applying this and once it dried it made my pores look like little holes on my nose and cheeks I was horrified. This product definitely does not minimize pores at least not for me. I look better without it than with it. Major disappointment!!

I love benefit however this sample was too too tooooooo small to even know if it works. Bad choice in size.
