              Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer Mini:

              This is a must have for every day use. Even if you don't want to do your entire makeup routine, putting this on makes your skin look just slightly more even and less shiny. Obviously it doesn't cover blemishes or do what foundation does, but I can definitely notice a huge difference in the smoothness and longevity of my foundation if I don't wear it.
