    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer Mini:

    I like how it makes my skin baby soft and it fills my pores perfectly. It also makes applying foundation so much easier since my skin has the same texture, plus it looks flawless. Try the sample before buying the full tube if you are a little unsure!

      I purchased this yesterday in-store, and it was the first thing I grabbed within two minutes of being in there! It was displayed awesomely, and I have always heard good things about this product. I bought the mini to see how I liked it, and I loved how they made mini-products! I was SO tempted to get the Benefit (hoolah, hoola, hula) Bronzer, or however it is spelled.

              Love the way it goes on, it's starts out great but doesn't last long. After about 5 hours in 90 degree weather it started to break down. Not only was I shiny but my pores are obviously visible again. I'm not giving up on it, just will need another primer during summer and us this one in fall and winter.

                    This product is flawless, I love it sooooooo much. I use it almost every day. The fist time I used this product I went out to run an errand and only had the primer and and mascar and 5 people came up to me and told me my skin looked flawless, when I wasn't even wearing any makeup. I will definitely be buying the full size when I run out. I would recommend to beginners.
