          While I've heard great things from others about this product (close friends love it) I haven't seen much a difference on my own skin when applying concealer. I usually put it right under my eyes and around my nose and chin. It's supposed to make pores less noticeable but everyones skin is so different it might work for some and not others.

              I am loving this primer. I have been using the Bare Minerals primer for months and have always wanted to try this one but never wanted to spend the money. I finally got the mini size to try it and 2 days later I went back and bought 2 full size ones. I pretty much will never use anything else ever again lol.

                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.
