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.

New Go To Product
Sampled

This product is my new go to, I have been carrying it in my purse for the past few weeks as it's great for a quick touch up to make up and to remove some shine. It's light but effective and doesn't sit heavy not the skin.

Smooth

I don't think this product was relevant for myself but it did go on very smooth and soft. Had a slight tiny to it but I didn't necessarily notice the color when I put it on

SMOOTH

Originally purchased sample at a benefit vending machine at the austin airport & loved it! I've tried other brands pore minimizers & they often tended to feel greasy or sticky.

Just not crazy about this product
Sampled

I got this product from Sephora before, and I'm personally not crazy about it. It doesn't moisturize enough or hold my makeup on my face, as a good primer would. And I don't see that big of a difference in my pores, so it feels extraneous. Absolutely LOVE Benefit as a brand though; this is the only product I've tried of theirs that I'm not crazy about.

Until Now, I have hated my pores!
Sampled

Even with liquid make-up my pores, to me, look like there is no way anyone could ignore them. With this, it will not take the pores and hide them perfectly however, this minimizes them! I appreciate that in my mid-40's.

I love this and am going to be ordering it this month!

Wonderful primer

I've used this item before I received it. I absolutely love it. Works great for smoothing everything out before applying your makeup.
