Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer Value Size:

It will definitely keep your skin looking blurred and soft finished, but it takes a bit of work to make sure it doesn't pill! Since it's silicone based, you want to do Moisturizer-> Benefit POREfessional -> Foundation. Pretty happy with it though1

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer Value Size:

    I have large, visible pores on my cheeks next to my nose and this primer is HANDS DOWN THE BEST to cover little imperfections. It's got a tinted color that matched my skin tone so it was great at blending in. It feels so soft and velvety when I apply it. It holds my foundation well so it's a great buy.

      I am so glad that I chose to purchase the value size. I truly love this primer. It applies seamlessly and does not irritate my sensitive, combination skin. The value size has lasted me several months and there is plenty left to get me through. A little goes a long way! I would definitely recommend this product and will continue to purchase it for myself!

        Love this stuff. I can mix it with moisturizer if I'm just popping out for a minute, combined with my makeup it makes it easy to apply without an additional step, can use for touch ups during the day. Doesn't break me out or make my makeup "pill" either. I buy the bigger size, more expensive at first, but at price/oz, it's a better deal.

              This primer leaves my face smooth and diminishes the appearance of pores - Even when I dont apply anything over the primer, my skin looks soft and almost flawless. It also allows my make up to stay on longer.

                  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.

                      Hi gorgeous! Our POREfessional is a primer so it is considered as makeup. This pore-minimizing primer is best for hiding the appearance of pores and fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin. If you're looking to control all-over shine, we recommend the POREfessional: agent zero shine! This shine-control powder instantly minimizes shine and helps smooth the look of pores. The invisible translucent shade is perfect for every skin tone. xoxo B

                      A:

                      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.
