    This is my makeup must have! I have oily skin and large pours. This fills in the pours and keeps my skin matte. I use it every day under my foundation and can not be without it!

                    I wanted to try this product out because I know so many people that love it. I bought the mini because I wanted to see how it worked with my skin. I was not pleased with the results. I have normal to oily skin and huge pores and this product in no way fills them. It helps my makeup apply smoother, but moves around unless I use a kabuki to apply my foundation.

                        Hi gorgeous! Our POREfessional face primer 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 (Item #: 2268638)! This shine-control powder instantly minimizes shine and helps smooth the look of pores. The invisible translucent shade is perfect for every skin tone - wear it over POREfessional for maximum POREfection! xoxo B
