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.

Really liked this a lot.
Sampled

I liked how it went on smooth and a little went a long way. Felt like it worked really well around my nose area and just to even out my skin tone.

very effective

while this is the 5th sample Of this product I have received, I'm not mad about it! It works very well at concealing pores and ensuring foundation goes on smooth. It smells fresh and isnt too heavy

it's very specialized

I'm sure this primer works wonderfully for people with large pores and/or fine lines, but this just pills all over my skin and makes my dry patches stick up.

Awesome

Love this product. I'm about to be 40 & definitely feel the need for a good primer. Have used several primers & I keep coming back to this one. Goes on smooth without feeling heavy, does not dry out my skin either. I work 12 hour shifts & it manages to help keep my makeup on for almost the whole shift!

Not for me
Sampled

Not sure what all the hype is about.. does not work well for me at all. Looks chalky, does not apply smooth and seems to clump up any makeup I put over it.

Good product if you do wear make up. I like the pore minimizing part of this product, but the slight tint I could do without since I don't wear make up.
