        Well this product has been really hyped up. I bought it to help conceal pores. Not only didn't it conceal pores but it also did little to blur any imperfections. As the day wore on it just looked cakey and didn't hold up at all. My skin is not oily but mostly dry. I don't recommend this. The price is way too high for a product that really does nothing.

                This is a very good product for filling in pores around the nose area. I have dry skin, so I'll go in with a moisturizing primer, then hit my nose area with this product, and it really helps smooth out that area and makes everything look seamless

                  I hate wearing makeup and being able to see my pores seeping through. It honestly works like magic. I use to think it people were exaggerating but it really works. Now every time I put on makeup I have to use this.

                    I normally don't use a primer but this was suggested at Ulta when I purchased my new foundation. So easy to apply and makes my skin so soft and flawless! It's a bit pricey but I plan on buying the bigger size next time.
