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.

It's Okay
Sampled

There are a lot of people that debate whether or not primer, in general, is actually effective. I don't think this primer does much for the pro-primer argument. I do like their 15 Hour Primer though. I've bought that one a few times and I use it in my T-Zone only. Its really good for combination to oily skin. I just wouldn't recommend it for all over the face.

I usually use Dr. Brandt's - it's a little less runny but I like this as well. If I don't use these products, I feel my look isn't as reat

The product went on smoothly and feel good but made a minor difference in the appearance of my pores.

Kinda Crepey
Sampled

Product slid on pretty well. As the day wore on, the product made my skin look a little crepey. I have normal-dry skin, so it might wear better on someone with oilier skin.

This okay . The product would roll up when I would apply foundation over it

Great!

This product works really well to help shrink the look of pores. It goes on really smooth and foundation and powders go really well on top of it.

Ok but nothing I'd go buy. There's much better products than this one.

It works

I like it enough to purchase it after using the sample. I am not sure why I need to write 20 words to say just that. But I like it.

Don't like tinted primers
Sampled

I do not like tinted primers. I use a foundation for tint. I don't need additional tint in the primer, particularly one that does not match my skin tone.
