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 sure what is exactly for but I mixed it in with my makeup. Really didn't notice any difference but I didn't think it was a bad product. Not sure at this point whether I will purchase however I love most all the samples I receive. I do like Benefit cosmetics.

This really does help reduce the appearance of your pores. Even using it without makeup makes a difference!

Great product, really works. I personally prefer a luminizer/primer but this is the best alternative I've tried. stays matte and in place, no weird smells.

I would give it a zero if I could

This product just doesn't work on my skin. I'm extremely fair, and it leaves me with an orange cast. It's also quite drying and doesn't prolong the wear of my makeup at all.
(Dry, sensitive, fair skin for reference)

It went on smooth and my face felt really soft! When I applied my foundation it seemed to glide right on! Looked smooth, velvety and just perfect.

I love this product. The color is great and it has a nice velvety feel to it. I would recommend this.

Ok, but not long-lasting

I was really excited to receive this in the March Birchbox! When you first put it on, you can really note an immediate difference. It mattes and hides pores very well. However, when I put foundation on over it, it seemed to come right off and my pores were showing again. Maybe I am doing something in the wrong order, or it's my foundation's fault, but I won't buy this again.
