Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer

This silky makeup primer diffuses the look of pores and fine lines for an air-brushed finish. Those with an oily T-zone will appreciate that it controls excess shine, too.

Can't stand this stuff!

Yuck!! I really dislike this primer. I don't get what people see in it. I've tried it so many times thinking I might like it this time, but the same thing happens every time. No matter what else is on my face, It balls up into disgusting chunks and I wind up washing it off. I love primers and have tried a ton, many that have a similar texture and don't ball up,but this one consistently disappoints!

I love the Benefit Brand of cosmetics. This particular item is one product that I have issues with. I have used this once before only because I received it as a birthday gift and it made my face oily. I threw the birthday gift away- and gave the Birchbox sample to my sister.

I use two serums on my face, then moisturizer, then I tried the porefessional primer. It smoothed on just fine at first, but started balling/piling when I blended my makeup in and I felt like I had too much gunk on my face. Also, it smells like an old woman who wears too much perfume.

As a base for foundation.... I've used better.. I felt it didn't allow my makeup to stay in its place.. Wouldn't even think of purchasing

Pore minimizing is a myth. This creates a film on the skin so that your makeup won't "sink" down.

Not big on this product. It pilled a lot with my makeup. I didn't like the way it felt on my skin.
