    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer Value Size:

    If you have a problem with bleeding lipstick, this is the answer. I use it around my lips, not on. Pat it on firmly into the lip lines. Don't rub it in - it has a tendency to crumble.

    The tinted color blends well with my skin color. Put on your lipline (if you use one) and then your lipstick.

    No more bleeding lipstick. Of course, when you eat anything oily, you'll have to reapply. Oil will break down​ most any cosmetic.

        This was maybe the first primer I ever used. I wish it would have worked. I feel like it sat in my pores and accentuated them rather than hid them. I was very disappointed since it was very hyped up. My skin just did not like this product.

                        Yes, if your main concern is to minimize the appearance of pores, you can certainly apply all over as a primer. Alternatively, you can spot treat areas of concern with The POREfessional, then apply another primer all over the face to target additional concerns, such as Stay Flawless to extend your makeup's wear to up to 15 hours, or "That Gal" to brighten up a dull complexion.
