        I have loved this product as long as I've used it. It comes out pigmented but goes on smooth and blends right into skin you don't even notice the color. This is the best pore reducer/ primer that I have used. This is an every day product for me!

                This product is great! The only problem I have with it is I have dry skin. I usually have to use a hydrating primer and I can't mix this primer with my usual one. I usually just use this product on the T zone. If you have another skin type this product isn't a problem at all.
