          To be honest, I have used this for a week now and I can't tell the difference at all (when I use it as to when I don't). I have applied it a couple different ways and I just can't tell that it does anything for me. I do have extremely dry skin, so maybe that's why. I don't know, but I will pass on this in the future.

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer Mini:

          This is a great primer to use alone! not my favorite under foundation. Smashbox photofinish is still my favorite for a long lasting primer under any foundation. Benefit's primer lasts all day and is great at evening out skin tones and shrinking pores but it is not so great under foundation. I've tried several foundations from benefit, lancome, smashbox, and too faced. I think they actually stay on less throughout the day with this primer. However, this is my go to for everyday. I pat it on my face and apply powder and it works great. I love it! just not with a foundation. They just don't seem to go well together. Now benefit primer and a powder? AWESOME! The two were made for each other.
